Welcome to the Evening Standard’s live coverage of the latest news and rumours from the transfer window.

Time is running out for Premier League sides to make changes to their squad for the 2020-21 season. Clubs have until October 5 to sign players from Europe, though deals with EFL clubs can continue until October 11.

So far, Chelsea have put the rest to shame with eight new additions while Tottenham have made a statement of intent of their own in re-signing Gareth Bale - with Sergio Reguilon also arriving from Real Madrid - and they still want a striker and a defender.

Champions Liverpool have bolstered in the form of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota - but it remains quiet at Old Trafford where Manchester United's sole signing has been Donny van de Beek as frustrations continue with the pursuit of Jadon Sancho.

Arsenal have also been busy, and are targeting Lyon captain Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey in what could be a dramatic finish to the transfer window.
