Four unlikely transfers that could still happen, involving Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool.

With two days left until the end of the transfer window, Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are preparing to finalize their transfer plans for the season. But the unpredictability of deadline day means there is still room for unlikely deals before the clock strikes 11 pm on January 31.

With the Premier League title race between Arsenal and Manchester City, Mikel Arteta and Pep Guardiola need to ensure their squads are full of talent and depth.

Behind them, teams like Manchester United, Newcastle and Tottenham are fighting for a place in the top four, while Chelsea and Liverpool are not left out of the equation.

In this context, last-minute purchases can take place, with managers frantically looking for reinforcements. Express Sport looks at Jurgen Klopp, Erik ten Hag and Mikel Arteta’s potential targets in the final 48 hours of the window.

Enzo Fernandez

Benfica have made it clear that Chelsea must come up with the full £105m (€120m) needed to trigger Fernandez’s release clause if they want to sign the 21-year-old. It’s almost a tug of war in transfer talks after the Blues failed in their attempts to strike a deal.

But by choosing the nuclear option, the Portuguese giants are entering dangerous territory and trying to convince Todd Boehly to sanction the deal that will complete the final puzzle of Graham Potter’s team.

And while it seems unlikely after the west London club spent £180million this month alone, Boehly cannot be underestimated when it comes to financial responsibility.

Marcus Thuram

It seems the most viable option for Thuram is to enjoy the final five months of the season with Borussia Mönchengladbach before choosing from the inevitable variety of clubs to join him on a free transfer. The France international has refused to sign a contract renewal at the Bundesliga club and is set to leave this summer, with Chelsea, United and Liverpool all interested.

The 25-year-old knows he is likely to earn a higher salary and signing fee this summer as he has no transfer fee. But the chance to land a striker already in double figures in a European top-5 league for around £10m could be too tempting for Arsenal, who won’t be reunited with Gabriel Jesus for several weeks .

Eduardo Camavinga

Real Madrid said no, his agent rejected claims he could leave, but nothing can be ruled out in a transfer window. Camavinga is in a tight spot at the Santiago Bernabeu, where he is getting just enough playing time to satisfy him, but not enough to silence speculation of a loan move.

Arsenal have already shown their interest as Mikel Arteta is still looking for a central midfielder to bring in and, if Madrid indicate they are open to letting the Frenchman leave in a temporary swap deal, that would represent the end of the window. Arsenal fans.

Sander Berge

Arsenal want a midfielder and it seems more likely than not, at this stage, that Moises Caicedo will be the man to arrive at the Emirates Stadium. But Brighton have shown a tendency to remain steadfast in their valuation in the past and £90m is a big price to pay.

If Arteta is keen to sign a reinforcement with Premier League experience at an affordable price, who better to approach than Berge. A Norwegian international, he already knows Martin Odegaard and is a good ball carrier. He is unlikely to be denied a chance to play in the Premier League by Sheffield United if a team emerges – and he could be a back-up option if Arsenal fail to secure Caicedo.
