10 mega-money deals that could happen before deadline day for EPL sides

 / autty

There are just 10 day left of this summer's transfer window and a string of deals in the pipeline or mooted but yet to be completed.
Here, we takes a look at some of the biggest transfers that could still be done before the transfer window closes next Thursday.

Nicolas Pepe - Arsenal

This would be a major statement signing from Arsenal if they can pull it off. Arsenal have moved quickly to agree a structured £72million deal with Lille for the Ivory Coast winger, who would significantly bolster their attacking options. Now they need to hold off the competition from home and abroad to finalise the club record deal.
Likelihood rating: ★★★★☆

Wilfried Zaha - Everton

Wilfried Zaha wants out of Crystal Palace and Everton's interest offers him fresh hope of securing a move with Arsenal's attention now turned to Pepe. They have the money to pull off a deal which will be needed with Palace holding out for as much as £80m. Everton had opening bid of £55m rejected but returned with an improved offer on Monday.
Likelihood rating: ★★★☆☆

Harry Maguire - Manchester United

Manchester United badly need a new centre back and Harry Maguire ticks many of the boxes. United's highest offer so far of £70m is close to what Leicester want but not quite close enough.
He wants to move to Old Trafford and time is running out for United to up their offer.
Likelihood rating: ★★★★☆

Ryan Sessegnon - Tottenham

A move to Tottenham has seemed a near certainty all summer following Fulham's relegation but until a deal is done there is always doubt. Fulham want around £25m for Sessegnon but Spurs have yet to stump up the cash and are hoping they can agree a cheaper price.
Likelihood rating: ★★★★☆

Kieran Tierney - Arsenal

There is confidence that Kieran Tierney will end the window as an Arsenal player. He wants to make the move, Arsenal are optimistic and Celtic won't stand in his way providing price offered is right. So far it hasn't been from two bids but only the structure of the offer remains to be sorted.
Likelihood rating: ★★★★☆

Bruno Fernandes - Manchester United

Another possible in at Old Trafford before next week's deadline. United have been linked with the goalscoring Portugal midfielder all summer but that interest has yet to develop into a bid. Wants move to England which increases chances of a deal getting done.
Likelihood rating: ★★★★☆

Romelu Lukaku - Inter/Juventus

His exit is only a matter of time. Now just a case of where and when, rather than if. Inter ready to offer cash with United wanting to recoup the £75m they paid Everton for the Belgian striker. Juventus could offer players to make up a deal that satisfies United. His omission from the United squad for their friendly in Norway is the latest sign that he is off.
Likelihood rating: ★★★★★

Paul Pogba - Real Madrid


Paul Pogba wants a new challenge and one of his idols, Zinedine Zidane, wants to offer him that at Real Madrid. United want at least £150m though and having failed to strike a deal with either of Gareth Bale's Chinese suitors there are now doubts about whether Madrid can accommodate Pogba's wages. His exit will also be dependent on United finding a replacement.
Likelihood rating: ★★☆☆☆

Leroy Sane - Bayern Munich

Manchester City are not short of wide options but could they really let such a key contributor in the last two years go so late in the window? Bayern Munich will try to convince them. Germans have gaps to fill in their wide areas following the retirement of Arjen Robben and free transfer departure of Frank Ribery and are confident they can prise Sane away.
Likelihood rating: ★★★☆☆

Giovani Lo Celso - Tottenham

Another deal with plenty of the pieces already in place. The Argentinian playmaker wants to join suitors Spurs and Real Betis have signed his replacement. Now for the small matter of the fee. Difference of opinion over that with Betis holding out for around £68m. Having already spent just under that sum on Tanuguy Ndombele, Spurs are aiming to negotiate that valuation down.
Likelihood rating: ★★★☆☆
