  • Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur could be involved ahead of transfer deadline day
  • The Blues want to reinforce their attack and have been linked with Jhon Duran
  • No major transfer has occurred during the ongoing January transfer window

At least five Premier League moves could happen this week ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline day.

Unlike in previous years, the 2024 winter transfer window has been uncharacteristically silent, with no major signing being made.

Last year's window broke records in terms of transfer deals sealed, with Chelsea making an impression at the time with a big spending spree.

Mykhailo Mudryk was among the high-profile players signed at the time, with the Blues forking out an eyewatering £88.5 million to sign him, per Sky Sports.

Leandro Trossard, Jorginho, and Enzo Fernandez were also among the top players involved at the time.

Instead of splashing the cash, this year's transfer window has been somehow muted, with clubs keen to comply with Financial Fairplay rules.

Be that as it may, we could still witness some moves ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.

Sports Brief takes a look at five transfer moves that could still happen hours to the D-day.

Five possible deadline day transfer moves

1. Jhon Duran (Aston Villa to Chelsea)

The Aston Villa striker has courted interest from Chelsea, who are desperate to reinforce their attack.

Duran joined Villa from Chicago Fire last January. However, he has endured limited playing time under Unai Emery.

2. Conor Gallagher (Chelsea to Tottenham)

Despite his impressive performances at Stamford Bridge, Gallagher has continually been linked with a possible exit.

According to Football London, Tottenham Hotspur are the leading contenders for the services of the 23-year-old.

3. Miguel Almiron (Newcastle to Saudi)

Newcastle are desperately keen to comply with the FFP rules.

Almiron could likely fall victim, with the Magpies said to be keen to cash in on the 29-year-old.

A move to the Middle East has been mooted.

4. Kieran Dewsbury-Hall (Leicester to Brighton/Brentford)

Dewsbury-Hall could make a dramatic return to the Premier League from Leicester City.

Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford have both been linked with a move for the Championship star.

5. Jacob Ramsey (Aston Villa to Newcastle/Tottenham/Bayern)

Aston Villa ace, Ramsey has widely been linked with a possible move away.

Several top clubs, including Tottenham, Newcastle, and Bayern Munich, are said to be interested in the £50mil-rated star.

Players Chelsea can sign

Elsewhere, Sports Brief previously analysed five players Chelsea can sign in January to strengthen their attack.

While Victor Osimhen is considered a top priority, the Blues are only expected to make a move for a short-term fix.

Real Madrid legend, Karim Benzema and former Liverpool ace, Roberto Firmino are among the players fitting the bill.
