Premier League transfer round-up: Tottenham aim for double signing

Transfer deadline day is here with several Premier League teams looking set for a busy end to the window. Everton are aiming to sign Dele Alli on a permanent deal from Tottenham following the appointment of Frank Lampard, who has offered the former England international a chance to revive his career. It comes after Spurs completed the double signing of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus, with Tanguy Ndombele also leaving the club after agreeing to rejoin Lyon on loan until the end of the season.

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang arrived in Barcelona earlier on deadline day, with the move at one stage looking off. That seems to have changed and he has had a medical in Spain - it could be confirmed in the early hours. Jesse Lingard is now staying at Man United after a loan move broke down, while Donny van de Beek has secured a departure, moving on loan to Everton. Rangers, meanwhile, have completed the signing of Aaron Ramsey on loan from Juventus - but Liverpool’s move for Fabio Carvalho fell through late on.

We’ve brought you all the late rumours and done deals right here and the transfer window is now closed in the Premier League and Championship. Follow all the latest transfer updates from deadline day below:

Lingard pushing United for Newcastle loan

Jesse Lingard has not given up on wanting to leave Manchester United on loan in search of regular game time - with Newcastle still keen for a deal.

According to the Athletic, Lingard has discussed the move with United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick and has pleaded for the club to lower their valuation.

The Independent’s Miguel Delaney has reported that United included a significant relegation survival clause in their loan terms, which could see Newcastle have to pay up to £16m if they were to sign Lingard until the end of the season.

Lingard has played just 24 minutes of Premier League football since Rangnick was appointed and the 29-year-old is desperate for more minutes in order to push for a place in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad.

Donny van de Beek expected to complete Everton loan

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is set to join Everton on loan until the end of the season.

United accepted loan offers from both Everton and Crystal Palace for the 24-year-old, who is yet to start a Premier League match this season.

Van de Beek is set to become Frank Lampard’s first signing as Everton manager and his appointment is also set to be announced today.

ESPN report that there will be no option to buy clause included in Van de Beek’s loan agreement as United want the Netherlands international back this summer.

Barcelona’s Dembele agrees terms with PSG

Ousmane Dembele has agreed personal terms with Paris Saint-Germain, according to several reports.

Barcelona want Dembele to leave the club before the end of the window but are holding out for a £20 million fee.

Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with Dembele, who joined Barcelona on a club-record fee of around £115 million in 2017.

Tottenham and Lyon finalise loan deal for Ndombele

Tanguy Ndombele is set to leave Tottenham on loan today as Lyon finalise the details of his return to the Ligue 1 club.

Ndombele, who broke Tottenham’s transfer record when he signed from Lyon in 2019, has fallen out of favour with Antonio Conte.

Finishing touches on the deal, including whether a option to buy clause will be inserted, are being finalised today.

Newcastle make late bid for Ekitike

Newcastle have made a deadline day bid for Stade Reims striker Hugo Ekitike.

According to Sky Sports, Newcastle have had a bid of around £25 million accepted for the 19-year-old, who has scored eight Ligue 1 goals this season.

West Ham have also been linked with the striker this January but Newcastle appear to have upped their efforts in order to sign Ekitike before the deadline.

Eriksen signs for Brentford seven months after cardiac arrest

Brentford’s director of football, Phil Giles, said: “We first discussed the possibility of Christian joining Brentford when we heard that he would be leaving Inter. It is fantastic that he is now with us.

“Naturally the process of signing Christian was more elongated than most transfers. I understand that many people will have questions about the process. In order to respect Christian’s medical confidentiality, we won’t be going into any details.

“Brentford fans can rest assured that we have undertaken significant due diligence to ensure that Christian is in the best possible shape to return to competitive football. Now Christian has made the decision to sign for Brentford, all parties want to focus fully on football.

“We are sure that Christian will make a big impact at Brentford and on the Premier League between now and the end of the season.”

The explosive talent and traits which make Colombia star Luis Diaz Liverpool’s latest ideal signing

The top scorer for the top team in Portugal. More than a goal or assist every 90 minutes of league play. Two goals in the same Champions League group as the team keen to sign him and the Copa America’s joint-top scorer, along with a certain Lionel Messi.

It’s easy to see the broad strokes of the attacking play which have attracted Liverpool to Luis Diaz, with the Reds now hopeful of signing the FC Porto wide man before Monday’s transfer deadline.

There’s far more to his game though, and his personality, than mere goalscoring – however important that factor might eventually be in one of Europe’s top teams outlaying big money for his services.

AC Milan eye Dele Alli loan move

AC Milan are looking into a loan deal for Dele Alli on deadline day, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Italian giants would bring the Tottenham midfielder to the San Siro after a downward spiral for the former England international.

Antonio Conte’s arrival has failed to change his situation, with a lack of game time over several seasons now pushing him close to the exit.

Christian Eriksen hopes to join new Brentford teammates ‘very soon'

Christian Eriksen hopes to join up with his new Brentford teammates “very soon” after clinching his return to both the Premier League and London.

The former Spurs midfielder arrives from Inter Milan until the summer after working his way back to fitness following his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last summer.

"I'm happy to announce I've signed for Brentford,” said the Dane. “I can't wait to get started and hopefully I'll see you all very soon."

Brentford sign Christian Eriksen

Brentford have signed Christian Eriksen on a deal until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

Thomas Frank said: “I am looking forward to working with Christian again. It has been a while since I last coached him, and a lot has happened since then. Christian was 16 at the time and has become one of the best midfield players to appear in the Premier League. He has also won trophies all over Europe and become the star of the Danish national team.

“We have taken an unbelievable opportunity to bring a World Class player to Brentford. He hasn’t trained with a team for seven months but has done a lot of work on his own. He is fit but we will need to get him match fit and I am looking forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get back towards his highest level.

“At his best, Christian has the ability to dictate games of football. He can find the right passes and is a goal threat. He also has very, very good set piece delivery, both from corners and direct free kicks. He is a player you can find with the ball, and he will come up with a solution to the problem in front of him. Christian will also bring experience of top level football to the Club. I expect him to have an impact in the dressing room and at the Training Ground.”
