Once one of the most exciting young players in the world, Ousmane Dembele surely needs a move now in order to get his career back on track.
According to Sport, the France international is now open to a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool and Manchester United both in the running to snap him up before tomorrow’s deadline.
Dembele has not lived up to expectations at Barcelona, but still has the talent to shine in a team better suited to his playing style, so it will be interesting to see where he ends up if he does make a move in the next 24 hours.
A player who has fallen out of favour and who would surely find it even harder to play if Dembele joins United, Daniel James’ future remains in some doubt ahead of transfer deadline day.
Football Insider claim Leeds could still be in for the Welsh winger, who could undoubtedly make a fine addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s newly-promoted side.
Leeds will no doubt be aware of what James can do when he plays regularly, as he did at the start of his United career, and the move would surely benefit him too as it seems like a long road for him now to earn back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s trust.
Despite being a key player for Chelsea in the last couple of seasons, Jorginho could be a surprise name on the way out in the coming hours, with Arsenal linked with the Italy international by ESPN.
They claim the Gunners are eyeing Jorginho on loan as an alternative to Lyon star Houssem Aouar, and he certainly seems like a player who’d make a fine fit for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Chelsea, however, will surely think twice about strengthening a major top four rival like this.
A player whose future has looked in doubt for some time, Antonio Rudiger is no longer featuring regularly for Chelsea and makes sense as an unconvincing performer the club might be keen to offload.
The Athletic link the Germany international with Tottenham, so it could again be a risky couple of deals for the Blues as they potentially strengthen two of their London rivals and two teams who could be major competitors in the race for a top four spot.
Rudiger might not be the best centre-back in the world, but he could be a useful option to give Mourinho more options in his Spurs defence.
