As Premier League clubs raced to close deals before the deadline, transfer deadline day was in full force. Here are the significant moves that have been made before deadline
Manchester United > Antony
On the final day of the summer transfer window, Manchester United finalized the acquisition of Brazilian winger Antony from Ajax for an initial payment of 95 million euros (£82.1 million).
Chelsea > Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
After protracted discussions, Chelsea and Barcelona finally came to an agreement on a transaction for roughly €14 million plus Marcos Alonso. Aubameyang is returning to the Premier League and reuniting with Thomas Tuchel, his former manager.
Manchester City > Manuel Akanji
After completing his £17 million transfer to Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund, Manuel Akanji signed a five-year contract and has since set his sights on winning trophies in England.
Denis Zakaria > Chelsea
Denis Zakaria, a midfielder for Juventus, has also been loaned to Chelsea. The injury to N’Golo Kante has left Chelsea with little choices in midfield, so the Switzerland international signs on for a season-long loan with a buy option.
Liverpool > Arthur Melo
Liverpool strengthened their midfield by signing Brazilian Arthur Melo on a season-long loan from Juventus for €37 million.
Manchester United > Martin Dubravka
Martin Dubravka has now been officially signed by Manchester United on a season-long loan from Newcastle United. This was just a formality. As a backup to David de Gea, the 33-year-old goalkeeper joins after Dean Henderson left on loan to Nottingham Forest.
Wout Faes > Leicester City
The Premier League team confirmed on Thursday that it had completed the free transfer of Belgian defender Wout Faes from French club Stade de Reims to Leicester City, subject to international clearance.
Bournemouth > Jack Stephens
The loan transfer of Southampton teammate Jack Stephens to Bournemouth has been completed.
Fulham > Layvin Kurzawa
Layvin Kurzawa, the defender for Paris Saint-Germain, has been loaned to Fulham for the entire season.
Everton > James Garner
James Garner, a midfielder for Manchester United, was acquired by Everton for a reputed £15 million.
Willian > Fulham
Former Brazilian winger Willian has signed a one-year contract with Fullham. He left Brazilian Serie A team Corinthians in August, and now he is back in the Premier League on a free transfer.
Everton > Idrissa Gana Gueye
Idrissa Gana Gueye, a midfielder from Senegal who previously played for Everton from 2016 to 2019, has returned to the club on a two-year deal from Paris St. Germain.
Barcelona > Hector Bellerin
The full-back left Arsenal after agreeing to end his contract, and he now plays for Barcelona. Bellerin left the team he joined at the age of 16 after spending the previous year on loan at Real Betis.
Martin Dubravka > Manchester United
Leander Dendoncker > Aston Villa
Ainsley Maitland-Niles > Southampton
Carlos Vinicius > Fulham
Jan Bednarek > Aston Villa
Duje Caleta-Car > Southampton
Dan James > Fulham
Billy Gilmour > Brighton
Arsenal > Douglas Luiz
The Gunners made proposals of up to £25 million for the Brazilian midfielder, but Villa rejected the bids and was holding fast for a price closer to £40 million. There was a huge gap between the two parties.
Chelsea > Edson Alvarez
Edson Alvarez is a favorite of Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, but Ajax was hesitant to trade because of how much money they had spent this summer.
Leicester > Marcelo
Leeds > Bamba Dieng
Nottingham Forest > Michy Batshuayi
