With a week to go until the end of the transfer window, more than 75 Premier League players face uncertain futures.
Cristiano Ronaldo remains the most high-profile name on this list, with the Portugal veteran still keen to leave Manchester United for a club in the Champions League.
United are set to be one of the busiest clubs in the final week, currently working on deals for Ajax winger Antony and a second goalkeeper in Martin Dubravka, while they still want another centre-forward and maybe a right-back.
United have been battling with Chelsea for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but Stamford Bridge looks to be the Barcelona man’s most-likely destination, as Thomas Tuchel looks set to be busy in the final week. Chelsea have also been bidding for Anthony Gordon and Wesley Fofana.
If United and Chelsea get their targets, it will trigger a flurry of activity out of both clubs, with Armando Broja, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Conor Gallagher and Christian Pulisic potentially available from Stamford Bridge and Phil Jones and Brandon Williams moving out of Old Trafford.
Chelsea striker Broja may yet stay but he has been high on the list at every Premier League club looking for a centre-forward, including Everton and Southampton. Wolves and Newcastle, though, have decided not to wait around as they look to complete deals for Sasa Kalajdzic and Alexander Isak respectively.

Everton also have Ben Brereton Diaz, Che Adams and Viktor Gyokeres on their striker list, while Southampton like Goncalo Ramos if they lose Adams. Fulham too are interested in signing a striker with Neal Maupay and Bamba Dieng on their list.

Wingers are also on the menu for a number of clubs including Arsenal, who are looking to replace Nice-bound Nicolas Pepe, and Tottenham, who will only let Bryan Gil leave if they can bring a quality replacement in. Brentford also want one as do Newcastle, who have been bidding for Joao Pedro, while Fulham are working on Roma’s Justin Kluivert and Willian has been training with the Cottagers.
As the dominoes start to fall there are numerous well-known names that could find new homes, while a number of youngsters could still head out on development loans, and Sky Sports has compiled a list of those that could still move in what has been one of the most interesting and busiest transfer windows to date:
