With little more than a week remaining in the summer transfer window, we bring you the latest news on some of the big transfers as deadline rapidly approaches.
Who do you think has been the best signing of the summer so far and which of these potential deals do you think are most likely to go through?
DONE DEAL – CHELSEA TO OLYMPIAKOS – €3.5m (Dh14m)
The ‘German Messi’ as he was once described has finally left the Blues. Joined from Werder Bremen in 2012 for £8m but failed to live up to expectations. The 27-year-old made a total of just 16 first-team appearances at Stamford Bridge.

DONE DEAL – LEICESTER TO ASTON VILLA – €2.3m (Dh9.6m)
The 27-year-old Belgian has moved to Villa Park on a three-year contract. The former Man United youngster, who made 129 appearances for Leicester, spent the second half of last season helping Middlesbrough to win promotion from the Championship.
FEE AGREED – TOTTENHAM TO NEWCASTLE – €5.8m (Dh24m)
The United States defender arrived on Tyneside Tuesday. Has been behind Kyle Walker in the pecking order at Tottenham ever since his move from the Seattle Sounders in 2014. He spent last season on loan at Newcastle’s local rivals Sunderland.

NEW TARGET – SHANGHAI SIPG TO FULHAM – LOAN
Slavisa Jokanovic is keen on the Ghanaian, who scored an eye-watering 95 goals in 83 league games for Al Ain during a glittering four-year UAE stint. The 30-year-old’s sizeable wage packet could put the Cottagers off, with Turkish side Besiktas also keen.
NEW TARGET – DEPORTIVO TO EVERTON – €17.5m (Dh72m)
The Toffees have identified Perez Martinez as the striker to provide support for Romelu Lukaku, who has decided to stay at Goodison Park. Director of football Steve Walsh is a long-time admirer of Perez, 27, who scored 17 La Liga goals last season.
