Enzo Fernandez, Hakim Ziyech, Moises Caicedo, Jorginho: Top Transfers That Could Be Completed on Deadline Day

  • Chelsea are set to cap off the January transfer window with at least one new arrival at the club
  • The Blues could also release some players with a Jorginho shock move to Arsenal being considered
  • Everton are also expected to be busy as Sean Dyche builds a squad to save the club from relegation

The mid-season transfer window is set to come to a close today with clubs making last-ditch efforts to bring in reinforcements.

Chelsea leads the pack in the clubs that have done decent business in January with Todd Boehly spending close to 460 million euros in his first two transfer seasons.

The Blues are not done yet as they continue to be linked with a couple of moves on deadline day.

1. Enzo Fernandez

Chelsea are reportedly close to agreeing on a deal with the World Cup-winning midfielder for a British record fee of 120 million euros.

Benfica had played hardball, but it has been said that they have started to look for replacements for the 21-year-old.

2. Moises Caicedo

The Ecuadorian released an emotional statement asking Brighton to allow him to leave. The Seagulls rejected three bids from Arsenal and Chelsea and asked the midfielder to stay away from training.

The two London clubs could make another effort on the final day to convince Brighton to release him. Even crazier, Chelsea are said to be ready to move in for both Fernandez and Caicedo.

3. Jorginho

Arsenal's backup plan in case they do not get Caicedo is to prise Jorginho away from Chelsea. The Italian's contract will be up in the summer and Mikel Arteta is believed to be a huge fan of his talents.

Chelsea would be willing to sell if they get either Fernandez or Caicedo. The 31-year-old could be the latest player to swap Chelsea for Arsenal.

4. Hakim Ziyech

With the many arrivals at Chelsea, the club will also have to release a few players. Ziyech's time in West London hasn't turned out as expected and he has always been linked with a move to AC Milan.

It has now been reported that he has already agreed on personal terms with Paris Saint-Germain. The Moroccan will be hoping the two clubs could iron out a deal on the final day. If the deal goes through, he will play alongside his international compatriot Archaf Hakimi.

5. Everton

The Toffees are expected to try and bring in new players to equip Sean Dyche with the necessary ammunition to avoid relegation.

The Farhad Moshiri-led club have been linked with a move for Chelsea's Conor Gallagher and Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana as a replacement for Anthony Gordon.

How Enzo Fernandez compares to other Chelsea players

Sports Brief has also reported that Chelsea's intensive pursuit of Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez has revived memories of how Manchester United desperately wanted to sign Frenkie De Jong.

The Blues have refused to give up on the World Cup-winning midfielder and are set to pursue all avenues to land him before the lapse of the transfer window.

Benfica want to hold on to the 21-year-old, but should Chelsea activate his release clause of close to 105 million euros, then the midfielder will be playing under Graham Potter soon enough. But why is Chelsea so keen on getting Fernandez and at such an 'exorbitant' price?
