Deadline Day has come to an end and Express Sport looks at the best and worst deals from a dramatic final 24 hours of the January transfer window.
The January transfer window has come to a close and the majority of deadline day deals have been finalised, while the last few moves are being tied up. Express Sport takes a look at the comings and goings following a busy past 24 hours on the market.
Chelsea’s move for Enzo Fernandez could end up being by far the biggest deal of the day in terms of transfer fee paid. The Blues have finally agreed a deal with Benfica worth a British record £105million but neither club are yet to confirm the transfer has gone through.
Spurs finally completed a deal to sign Pedro Porro. He has joined on loan, with the move becoming permanent in the summer for in excess of £40m.
Arsenal made their third signing of the window, completing the signing of Jorginho for an initial £10m. Fulham finally got an £8m deal over the line for Sasa Lukic, while Crystal Palace announced the arrival of Naouirou Ahamada for just under £10m.
Bournemouth have been big spenders, completing a deal for Ukraine defender Illia Zabarnyi for up to £24m. The Cherries have also signed midfielder Hamed Traore on loan from Sassuolo, with the obligation to make that permanent for £26m in the summer.
There were plenty of big-name moves either on loan or free transfers. Joao Cancelo was unveiled as a new Bayern Munich player on loan until the summer, while Matt Doherty had his contract cancelled by Spurs to join Atletico Madrid on a free transfer.
Fernandez will be regarded as one of the signings of the window, not just of deadline day. Chelsea have pursued the Argentine all month and hope to have got everything in place.
Harrison Ashby is a player to keep an eye on after his £3m move to Newcastle from West Ham. Eddie Howe had tracked the player for years, though getting in ahead of Kieran Trippier may be tricky for the 21-year-old.
Albert Sambi Lokonga has switched Arsenal for Palace on a loan deal. It could turn out to be a positive move for all three parties as the Belgian’s career in north London had stalled somewhat and he has plenty to prove.
