It’s Transfer Deadline Day! There are just hours remaining for Premier League clubs to finalise their business for the winter, with the window set to slam shut at 11pm.

Here are the potential Premier League deals to watch out for on Transfer Deadline Day:

Armando Broja

Armando Broja continues to be linked with an exit from Chelsea and there is no shortage of suitors for the forward. Wolves saw a loan approach for the 22-year-old turned down earlier this week, while Fulham have submitted a proposal of a loan deal with an option to buy.

Chelsea’s preference had been for a straight sale or loan with obligation, though that stance is understood to have softened in the final hours of the window. A loan deal is now possible, provided there is a fee of around £5m and the academy product is provided with significant assurances over his playing time.

Broja has been unable to establish himself in West London and has scored twice in 19 games this season. He will be keen to ensure regular game time after missing much of the last two seasons through injury. Aston Villa and West Ham have also been credited with an interest in what looks like a competitive race to sign the striker.

Wilfried Gnonto

West Ham want a winger but have been frustrated in attempts to sign Al-Ittihad’s Jota and Nordsjaelland youngster Ibrahim Osman. Reports have suggested the Hammers could turn to Wilfried Gnonto and reignite their interest in the Leeds wideman.

Gnonto pushed for an exit from Leeds in the summer after impressing despite the club’s relegation from the Premier League last season. The 20-year-old has since patched up his relationship with the promotion hopefuls, though has struggled to command an automatic role with just seven starts and one goal in the Championship to date.

Leeds are aware of Gnonto’s potential, with the versatile forward having already won 13 caps for the Italian national team. The club have held talks with Gnonto over a new deal, though interest from the Premier League could complicate matters.

Antonio Nusa

Brentford looked set to complete a coup with the capture of Antonio Nusa from Club Brugge, appearing to have beaten competition from wealthier Premier League rivals to the in-demand teenager.

However, the deal has stalled, opening up opportunities for rival sides to swoop in. Sky Sports have claimed there are ‘complications’ in negotiations with the Norwegian, which could allow Spurs and Chelsea – each of whom have shown interest – to move in.

Brentford will hope to tie up a deal as soon as possible, with Nusa among the most exciting young talents outside Europe’s top five leagues.

Dominic Solanke

Dominic Solanke’s goalscoring form has attracted interest from the Premier League’s top clubs, with several sides linked with signing the former Chelsea and Liverpool prospect.

Solanke has scored 12 times in 20 league appearances for the Cherries this season, form which has led to calls for an England inclusion this spring. Several of the top sides are assessing centre-forward options, though it is Spurs who have been most heavily linked with the 26-year-old.

Ange Postecoglou has improved his options with the loan addition of Timo Werner this month, while Richarlison is in a rich vein of form, though the signing of Solanke would provide the North Londoners with an out-and-out focal point.

Solanke’s mix of industry and technique, coupled with improved confidence and composure around goal, appears ready for the next step. However, Bournemouth will demand a big bid to sanction his sale mid-season.

Enes Unal

Bournemouth have been linked with Enes Unal, a potential contingency plan should Solanke depart. The ex-Manchester City youngster has forged a fine reputation since leaving the Etihad and has scored 30 goals in La Liga over his last two full seasons at Getafe.

The Turkey international has recently returned from an ACL injury that has seen him miss the majority of the campaign to date, and Bournemouth are eyeing up a move. Unal’s arrival could allow Kieffer Moore to depart on loan with multiple Championship clubs targeting the towering Welshman.

Maxwel Cornet

Maxwel Cornet’s move to West Ham has failed to pan out as hoped, with the Frenchman having started just three Premier League games in 18 months at the London Stadium.

Cornet looked an astute addition after arriving from relegated Burnley in 2022, having scored nine Premier League goals in his sole season at Turf Moor. He has failed to convince David Moyes, however, and Crystal Palace are reportedly open to a deal that would see Cornet cross the capital.

Yuri Alberto

Wolves search for a centre-forward has landed at Yuri Alberto, a potentially exciting arrival if the club can navigate a complicated deal. Alberto’s ownership situation has stalled a loan move to Molineux, as Gary O’Neil looks to bring in a number nine before the deadline.

Wolves have allowed Sasa Kalajdzic and Fabio Silva to leave on loan in January and are eyeing Alberto, and Chelsea’s Armando Broja, as options to compete with and compliment their forward line.

Alberto, who made his Brazil debut last year, has scored 26 goals in 86 games since signing for Corinthians from Zenit St Petersburg, where he won the Russian Premier League title.
