Arsenal's Guimaraes Plan B, £12m Man Utd exit: Six big transfers possible before deadline

[ad_1]

It’s been a whirlwind January transfer window that appears to have been ignited towards the back end of the month, and there are six other big deals that could still be done in the Premier League before the deadline.

There are just a few days remaining until Monday’s transfer deadline, but there are still many Premier League deals that could be completed ahead of February 1.

The January window got off to a rather slow start, but Newcastle have now began to splash their riches, and it’s sparked everyone into life, with deals being completed all across the Premier League, and around Europe.

So far Newcastle have signed Chris Wood and Kieran Trippier, while a deal for Bruno Guimaraes is close, and Aston Villa brought Philippe Coutinho back to the Premier League.

Many of the ‘big six’ have been quiet up until now, but there are six big transfers still possible between now and the end of the window, concerning some of the biggest English clubs.

Here Express Sport takes a look at six potential deals that are still possible before Monday’s deadline…

Jesse Lingard

Jesse Lingard is nearing an exit from Old Trafford as his contract expires at the end of the season, and Manchester United are willing to let the midfielder leave on loan this January.

Lingard starred on loan at West Ham following a January loan move last season, and Newcastle want to sign the midfielder in the hope that he will replicate that success and keep the club in the Premier League.

However, although a £2.5m loan fee isn’t an issue, United want a mammoth £12m survival bonus included in the deal if Lingard helps them avoid relegation, according to the Telegraph.

This bizarre request has understandably not been received well be either Newcastle or Lingard, and it remains to be seen as to whether a deal can be negotiated before the deadline.

Sofyan Amrabat

Tottenham may have missed out on another signing as Diaz looks set for Liverpool, but they are in talks with Fiorentina over a move for Sofyan Amrabat.

Fiorentina have been firmly in the spotlight this window as Dusan Vlahovic has caught the headlines, but Tottenham are keen on signing Amrabat, who has impressed in midfield.

With Tanguy Ndombele set to leave, Antonio Conte has identified Amrabat as a replacement after watching him in Serie A last season, and a deal could be done for a loan with an option to buy in the summer.

For a deal to happen, Fabrizio Romano has reported that either Ndombele or Dele Alli must leave.

Douglas Luiz

Aston Villa may have signed stars such as Lucas Digne, Coutinho and Calum Chambers already during Steven Gerrard’s first window in charge, but Douglas Luiz is also linked with an exit away from Villa Park.

Arsenal haven’t had a good window, as Mikel Arteta wanted to sign a striker and a midfielder, but is heading towards February with neither added to his side.

The Gunners were interested in Bruno Guimaraes from Lyon, but the the Brazilian likely to sign for Newcastle, Luiz has been dubbed as their ‘Plan B’.

Gerrard is reluctant to let Luiz go, but the club have already received a bit of £30m from an unnamed Premier League club for the midfielder, although apparently the club in question was not Arsenal.

Mitchel Bakker

Newcastle aren’t done yet, and they are in talks to sign Bayer Leverkusen left-back Mitchel Bakker, who could cost the Magpies £16m.

The 21-year-old has impressed in the Bundesliga this season and Newcastle are in desperate need of reinforcements in the full-back position.

Leverkusen are reportedly open to a sale, but wish to find a suitable replacement before doing business with Newcastle, but time is running out.

The Magpies are also targeting Brighton defender Dan Burn as talks stall with Bakker, but Eddie Howe is keen to bring at least one of them on board.

Takumi Minamino

With Liverpool in a great position to sign Porto forward Luis Diaz, it leaves Takumi Minamino in a vulnerable position as he is even less likely to feature for the Reds.

Although Minamino has never been a regular first-team starter, he is still valued highly by Jurgen Klopp, but the German would allow him to leave if the right offer came in.

Minamino spent time on loan at Southampton last season, and now Leeds have approached Liverpool over a potential move, but their initial offer has already been rejected.

Liverpool will only entertain ‘serious’ offers for the Japan international, meaning that Leeds will have to raise their offer to complete a move.
