Welcome back to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of all the latest transfer news as the fallout continues from last week’s deadline day.
The domestic window finally slammed shut for Premier League clubs in its entirety on Friday, 16 October, with the international window having already closed on October 5.
Top flight clubs utilised the initial eleven days of negotiation with EFL clubs to good effect, as West Ham sealed a potential £30million deal for Brentford’s Said Benrahma, while Tottenham nabbed Jose Rodon from Swansea and Crystal Palace brought in Jack Butland to strengthen their goalkeeping options.
As for deals during the main window, Chelsea spent over £200m on the likes of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, Manchester United missed out on Jadon Sancho but signed Edinson Cavani, and Arsenal recruited £45m Thomas Partey among others.
It appears as though one of Bartomeu’s final acts may have been to agree for Barcelona to feature in a European Super League, which could make things very difficult for the next president and board.
The drama continues at Camp Nou…
Huge news coming out of Barcelona tonight – Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned as club president.
The rest of the board have also resigned their positions.
We all know by now that Arsenal ended up signing Thomas Partey on deadline day after a move for Houssem Aouar failed to materialise.
However, L’Equipe reports that Mikel Arteta’s preferred choice may have been Aouar, though – as per Sport Witness – Edu’s opinion ‘obviously had more weight’ than Arteta’s.
