As the Premier League elite race to complete their squad's before Thursday's transfer window deadline, Sam Wallace examines the players and power brokers who will determine the big moves. Nassef Sawiris Billionaire newcomer The new Aston Villa co-owner has stabilised a club that looked in serious trouble, with cash converted into equity. A billionaire, he could potentially be a serious player in English football, along with fellow new co-owner Wes Edens, the American NBA franchise owner, and it will be intriguing to see how they approach the long-term squad-building process in such a fraught market. In the short-term, they will have to make a decision over Jack Grealish but given their initial investment, neither will feel the club have to sell. Default setting Unknown, but “roll of the dice” strategy of now minority stake owner Tony Xia, as described by his former finance director, should not be necessary. Strategy Replacing Grealish will be difficult – so why … [Read more...] about Transfer window climax: The key figures who will feature ahead of deadline day
0 of 4 Matthew Ashton - AMA/Getty Images Chelsea are in the midst of a chaotic summer that does not seem ideal preparation for a Premier League title challenge. Their dismissal of Antonio Conte was so dragged out that the former boss is now taking legal action against the club, claiming Chelsea have cost him one year of his managerial career, per Matt Hughes of The Times. Star player Eden Hazard and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois are being pursued by Champions League holders Real Madrid. And new boss Maurizio Sarri, appointed last week, has just three weeks to shape his squad before the transfer window closes and the new campaign begins. It's a complex and frustrating time for Chelsea, but there is some good news for Sarri—he will have more say over transfers than Conte ever did. Here is an in-depth look at how the Stamford Bridge transfer situation looks right now. 1 of 4 Royal Belgium Pool/Getty Images Hazard is 27 years old, has just been voted the World Cup's … [Read more...] about Inside the Transfer Window: What’s Going on at Chelsea?
What a last hour that was. After the Stefano Okaka deal fell through it looked like it could be a quiet night in SW6 , with very little happening as the clock ticked its way down to the 11pm deadline. But it's funny how a failed move at one club can open the door for so many opportunities. Aleksandar Mitrovic, who had been in Belgium in the morning, was suddenly on a plane to Fulham to complete a move, while Middlesbrough fullback Cyrus Christie had popped up at Motspur to undergo a medical - all in the last half hour. Last summer, Deadline Day was a bit of a disappointment to Fulham fans - a move for Dwight Gayle fell through but Yohan Mollo and Jordan Graham were signed, and it was easy to see why supporters were apprehensive heading into the final few hours. But my word, Tony Khan and the recruitment team pulled it out of the bag and have now handed Slavisa Jokanovic all the tools necessary to mount not only a Play-off push, but an automatic promotion challenge to get into the … [Read more...] about Fulham transfer window verdict: Promotion push is on
