With just five days to the close of the transfer window Manchester united Manager Erik ten Hag has now moved to reshuffle the team, as pressure continues to mount over the team’s string of poor performances in the Premier League. United who are now eighth on the standings will now have to find replacements for their attacking options after the club agreed to transfer Jadon Sancho on loan to Borussia Dortmund. Dutch midfielder Donny Van de Beek has also been transferred on loan to German side Eintracht Frankfurt.
Fifth place Tottenham have confirmed Timo Werner’s return to the Premier League after the club RB Leipzig agreed to sign him off on loan for the rest of the season. Sergio Reguilon will now ply his trade for Brentford after his contract on loan at United expired earlier this week. Radu Dragusin becomes manager Ange Postecoglou’s second signing since taking charge at Spurs after he agreed to join the English side on a £26.7m transfer deal from Genoa. The manager has since expressed his optimism over the signing but did not reveal whether both players would make their debut against Manchester City in Friday’s FA cup match.
Despite the patchy performance Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed the club was currently not keen on signing any new prospects but on building the team. On the other hand, Liverpool’s attacking midfielder Fabio Carvalho has since been transferred on to Hull City on a loan agreement for the rest of the season. Manager Jurgen Klopp however has his sights set on Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich to shore up the team’s attacking and defensive midfield options. He will however have tough it out against Manchester City who have also expressed their interest in signing the player from the Bundesliga.
City are equally yet to make a signing but have penned off a loan agreement with the Hammers for the services of midfielder Kalvin Philips. Philips who was signed to the Etihad for £45m from Leeds United has since struggled to earn a spot in Pep’s starting line up but is expected to be instrumental to West Ham’s battle for a spot at the helm of the premier league.
