Transfers and gossip up to September 1st

We catch up with some of the transfers and gossip up to September 1st, with the help of reputable sources.

It’s transfer deadline day, meaning both ourselves and Fantasy Football Scout are covering this hectic burst of late deals. Some of today’s rumoured deals will fall through, some will come to fruition and these can have a huge effect on Fantasy Premier League and UCL Fantasy.

Here are a few of the more interesting rumours heading into the final hours.

Transfers and gossip

DONE: Matheus Nunes (Wolverhampton Wanderers to Manchester City, £53m)

Following the capture of Jeremy Doku, the champions have added another midfielder to the mix. This restoration of depth could make Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez owners slightly nervous beyond the international break.

CLOSE: Sofyan Amrabat (Fiorentina to Manchester United, loan)

After slow progress, it looks like Man United will get their central midfielder. Impressive in the World Cup for fourth-placed Morocco, Amrabat seems set to join on an £8.5m loan that includes a £17.1m option to buy that could rise to £21.3m.

DONE: Sergio Reguilon (Tottenham to Manchester United, loan)

A short-term fix for Luke Shaw’s injury, Reguilon costs a mere £4.4m in FPL.

DONE: Cole Palmer (Chelsea to Manchester City, £40m)

On the surface, it’s a curious transfer that moves the promising 21-year-old Palmer from Man City’s bench to Chelsea’s. Yet Mauricio Pochettino’s press conference already mentioned that “he decided to come because he expects to play more”, so let’s see if the Blues change from their wing-back system.

At just £4.9m, Palmer could become an FPL bargain if he locks in a starting spot.

CLOSE: Joao Palhinha (Fulham to Bayern Munich, £58m)

Things could be about to get grim for Fulham supporters, as they look a much worse side without defensive midfielder Palhinha. His importance has been noticed by Bayern Munich and he’s been granted permission to fly to Germany should a fee be agreed.

Marco Silva is rushing to find a replacement, linked to names such as Scott McTominay and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

CLOSE: Ryan Gravenberch (Bayern Munich to Liverpool, £34.2m)

This moves allows Dutch talent Gravenberch to join Liverpool, completing Jurgen Klopp’s huge midfield turnover. Not much of a goal scorer, it’s unlikely a transfer of interest to FPL managers.

CLOSE: Brennan Johnson (Nottingham Forest to Tottenham, £45m)

With a big Harry Kane fee burning a hole in their pocket, Spurs look set to splash out on Welsh international Brennan Johnson. Re-classified as a midfielder in FPL, Johnson’s debut Premier League campaign started slowly – with only two goals over the first 17 outings – but he had a more potent spell in the early weeks of 2023 to end on eight.

He’s dropped to £5.9m in price and it’ll be interesting to see if he immediately snatches Dejan Kulusevski’s place, or is part of rotation under Ange Postecoglou.

CLOSE: Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea to Nottingham Forest, £8m)

This Johnson sale will spark much transfers and gossip at Nottingham Forest – as if they needed much encouragement! Linked with Wilfred Ndidi after recent acquisitions of Murillo, Andrey Santos and Gonzalo Montiel, winger Hudson-Odoi is arriving from Chelsea. The medical has been completed.

CLOSE: Ibrahim Sangare (PSV Eindhoven to Nottingham Forest, £30m)

One of the window’s more stunning transfers is seeing Forest pull off a Sangare coup. Highly-rated and targeted by many top clubs, he’s instead settled for a tough relegation battle.

CLOSE: Odisseas Vlachodimos (Benfica to Nottingham Forest, £8.5m)

Meanwhile, it could be bad news for those with cheap enabler Matt Turner. He’s only been at the club for a few weeks but could already be displaced as goalkeeper by Vlachodimos.

A Champions League regular with Benfica, the 29-year-old Greek international surely isn’t moving to be second choice.

DONE: Nuno Tavares (Arsenal to Nottingham Forest, loan)

Additionally, by loaning left-back Tavares from Arsenal, FPL managers have another £4.0m defensive option to consider.

DONE: Clement Lenglet (Barcelona to Aston Villa, loan)

Familiar to Spurs fans from last season, the Lenglet loan is to cover Tyrone Mings’ long-term injury.

DONE: Ansu Fati (Barcelona to Brighton, loan)

On the surface, Fati moving to Brighton seems incredible. He was destined to be the next big thing out of La Masia. However, injuries have plagued the winger, as an initial disagreement on how to treat his torn meniscus led to rushed rebab, various operations and muscle problems elsewhere.

Naturally, his confidence has dropped and this temporary deal is a chance to restart his career in new surroundings.

CLOSE: Alex Iwobi (Everton to Fulham, £22m)

Another chunk of the Palhinha fee will bring in Iwobi, who is in the final year of his Everton contract.

CLOSE: Luis Sinisterra (Leeds to Bournemouth, loan)

Injuries restricted the winger to just 13 starts during Leeds’ relegation but he bagged five goals.
