In a pivotal week, Premier League clubs are looking to push through deals as the transfer window shuts.

Tottenham look keen to make moves with Antonio Conte not hiding his dissatisfaction as the club’s inability to strengthen yet, with Dele Alli and Giovani lo Celso both likely to be pushed out the door after being left out of the squad for the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea. While Arsenal are also in the market for a striker, with Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic top of their list, though Juventus may move should it emerge that the Viola cannot hold on to the Serbian forward until the summer.

Meanwhile, Newcastle continue to be busy, having already signed Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood, with Eddie Howe desperate for reinforcements to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation. Netherlands left-back Mitchel Bakker from Bayer Leverkusen has been linked, while Jesse Lingard, or even alli, could emerge as Howe targets an attacking midfielder.

Jesse Lingard is another name to monitor, with the Manchester United star eager to leave on a loan deal to gain first team football, with Ralf Rangnick unable to hand him the role he craves after a successful loan to West Ham last season.

Liverpool remain active with young talent top of their list of priorities, having been linked to Real Madrid’s French starlet Eduardo Camavinga and Fulham winger Fabio Carvalho. Follow all the latest transfer news, rumours and done deals below.

09:30 , Jamie Braidwood

Goal are reporting that Dele and Lo Celso do not have a future at Spurs under Conte, with the Italian telling Sky Sports after Sunday’s match: “I don’t want to comment on single players.
