As we near the end of the summer transfer window don’t be surprised by the very real possibility of some last minute deals of real interest. Here are ten that could be pulled off before the window slams shut.
Chieck Tiote Newcastle United to Arsenal
Arsenal will surely be looking to bring in some much needed steel to their midfield and will need to replace Alex Song, who fled for Barcelona, and a move to sign Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote, as detailed by the Daily Mirror, may well be a very sensible one to consider.
Whilst Alan Pardew’s side have made great strides over the past year, the chance to ply his trade in the Champions League may well mean a move to the Emirates Stadium could tempt the Ivory Coast international. The midfielder says he is happy at St James’ Park but perhaps he would be even happier bossing the Gunners midfield.
Also if Mike Ashley is presented with a decent bid would he be able resist cashing on a player who only cost the Magpies £3.5m.
