Two Big Transfers Likely To Happen Before Tuesday Deadline Day

2 mins read

There are only few days left to the end of the January transfer window and there deals expected to be finalised by clubs before the cut off time on Tuesday night at 11pm Nigerian time.

Prime Business Africa looks at two players whose moves have not happened but could be concluded on or before the last day.

1. Hakim Ziyech (Chelsea To Roma)

Morocco winger, Hakim Ziyech has been linked with two clubs in the final days of the transfer window.

The Chelsea star whose starting place in the Chelsea starting lineup is threatened by the arrivals of Mykailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke is the subject of Everton and AS Roma.

Roma could lose Danilo Zaniolo to interested clubs and the ‘Gialorossi’ have identified Ziyech as a potential replacement for the 22-year-old forward.

Struggling Premier League side, Everton who are on the verge of losing one of their most priced assets, Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United, could pursue a £25 million signing of the African superstar who helped his country reach the semifinals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

AS Roma is managed by former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho and arguably represents a better fit for the status of Ziyech than Everton whose Premier League survival is unknown.

2. Moises Caicedo (Brighton To Arsenal)

Arsenal on Friday submitted a £60 million bid for Brighton and Hoves Albion defensive midfielder, Moises Caicedo.

The offer was outrightly turned down by the Seagulls.

However, Arsenal could return with an improved offer for the Ecuadorian who is also receiving the attention of Chelsea.

Chelsea had registered their interest with a bid of £55 million which was immediately turned down just like Arsenal’s.

A bidding war might ensue with Arsenal not ready to be beaten twice by their London rivals who snatched their target, Mykailo Mudryk by offering higher transfer fees to Shakhtar Donetsk.

With Arsenal playing so well in the Premier League, it is widely reported in the UK that Caicedo is leaning towards Arsenal than Chelsea.
