Possible Transfer Deadline Day Moves: Is Gallagher Heading to Chelsea?

The winter transfer window for the Premier League is almost coming to an end, and it has been the quietest January window ever with minimal spending. The threat of breaching strict profitability and sustainability rules has forced clubs to restrain their spending, particularly after Everton’s 10-point deduction in November. Major deals have mostly revolved around loan deals, leaving fans with not much to expect in the final hours of the window. However, there are still big-name players such as Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, Borussia Dortmund midfielder Giovanni Reyna, and others who could make moves before the deadline. In La Liga, it seems unlikely for a late flurry of business at either Barcelona or Real Madrid, although they would love to bolster their squad. The Bundesliga and Serie A have also had a relatively quiet window, but Ligue 1 has seen more activity, particularly with Lyon signing players and trying to bring in additional midfielders as well as wingers.
The final few hours of the 2024 winter transfer window are upon us as Thursday’s deadline draws near. The Premier League will be closing for business at 11 p.m. GMT / 6 p.m. ET, but despite the limited time, there may still be some deals in store for clubs across Europe.

Although this January window is setting new records for its quietness in the Premier League, with clubs spending less than £100 million in total, transactions have still been taking place. However, the majority of these transactions have been in the form of loan deals.

As the deadline day approaches, some big-name players could still make moves. Conor Gallagher and Giovanni Reyna are the ones to watch, with potential Premier League moves still in the cards for both. Although several other potential deals have been mentioned, the likelihood of major transactions at big clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United remains slim.

In LaLiga, clubs such as Barcelona and Real Madrid have been hampered by injuries, but the window is likely to close with limited activity from them. Nevertheless, they may make some short-term additions to bolster their squads.

In the Bundesliga and Serie A, the transfer window has been quiet, with only a few notable movements. However, Ligue 1 has seen slightly more activity, with Lyon being particularly busy in pursuit of new signings.

As the final hours of the winter transfer window tick away, the possibility of major last-minute deals across Europe still remains relatively low.
