Transfer market deadline day is a chaotic occasion, with clubs, and even players, on the look out for a quick fix, going into the end stage of domestic and continental competitions.
Here are some of the major player transfers expected to happen on the deadline of the first transfer window of 2023.
Ever since the arrival of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Keylor Navas’s position at PSG has been reduced to a standby.
The Costa Rican legend might get a break from it with Premier League side Nottingham Forest looking set to nab the former Real Madrid man.
Navas would have to battle it out with Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson for the goalkeeping spot at Forest, if the deal goes through.
Argentine midfielder Enzo Fernandez has in Chelsea’s radar ever since the transfer window opened.
The best young player from Qatar could possibly be on the move on the deadline day, with Blues ready to offer Benfica more than 100 million dollars for his services.
Joao Cancelo might have played his last game for Manchester City.
The Portugal fullback has reportedly traveled to Bayern Munich ahead of a potential loan move to the German champions, who would have an option to buy Cancelo for 70 million euros ($76 million).
Cancelo, who can play as a right back or left back, is an attacking defender who has played an integral role for City in recent seasons but has fallen out of favor with manager Pep Guardiola since the World Cup.
