Lowdown on what's happening at your Premier League club during the final hours of the transfer window

By Dan Ripley for MailOnline

They've had all summer but Premier League managers are still facing a race against time to finish their transfer business ahead of the window closing on Wednesday night.

Some managers in north London will be frantically trying to add to their fragile squads while others in Manchester will spend the next couple of days sitting happy with their summer activity.

But whether your side is breaking a piggy bank to sign that winger or just trying to offload some big earners - Sportsmail looks at the possible comings and goings from the 20 Premier League sides ahead of Wednesday night's deadline.

Coming in: Mertesacker is set to sign for Arsenal

Coming in: Mertesacker is set to sign for Arsenal


Who's coming?

‘Anyone!’ would be the screams from supporters. Per Mertesacker and Andre Dos Santos look set to come and into a defence that has more holes than a sieve.

Who's going?

Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri have already gone and only loan deals look likely in the next couple of days. Arsenal simply can't afford to lose any more players.

IN: Chu Young Park(   Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Southampton, £11m), Gervinho (Lille £10.7m), Carl Jenkinson (Charlton, £1m), Joel Campbell (Deportivo Sarpissa, undisclosed).

OUT: Samir Nasri (Manchester City, £24m), Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona, £35m), Emmanuel Eboue (Galatasaray, £3m), Gael Clichy (Manchester City, £7m), Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (Ipswich, undisclosed), Mark Randall (Chesterfield, free), Tom Cruise (released), Denilson (Sao Paulo, loan), Wellington (Levante, loan), Carlos Vela (Real Sociedad, loan), Pedro Botelho (Rayo Vallecano, loan), Armand Traore (QPR, undisclosed).


Who's coming?

Alan Hutton

Tottenham right-backs are in vogue at Villa Park. Alex McLeish is keen to thrash out a deal for fellow Scot Alan Hutton (above) to replace Kyle Walker, who returned to north London after a loan spell last term.

Who's going?

McLeish is reluctant to let fringe players leave easily. However, Habib Beye and Carlos Cuellar are surplus to requirements at the club.

IN: Charles N'Zogbia (Wigan, £9.5m), Shay Given (Manchester City, £3.5m).

OUT: Stewart Downing (Liverpool, £20m), Ashley Young (Manchester United, £16m), Luke Young (QPR, undisclosed), Jonathan Hogg (Watford, undisclosed), Brad Friedel (Tottenham, free), Nigel Reo-Coker (Bolton, free), John Carew (West Ham, free), Robert Pires (released), Moustapha Salifou (released), Andreas Weimann (Watford, loan), Isaiah Osbourne (Hibernian, free), Jean Makoun (Olympiakos, loan).


Who's coming?

Kean has left it late to strengthen but will look to bring in another striker with former Tottenham frontman Mounir El Hamdaoui topping the list.That won't be easy with Celtic also interested. Scott Dann is also rumoured.

Who's going?

The vultures are circling Ewood Park with a possible relegation battle on the horizon. Star centre-back Chris Samba is being tracked by a number of clubs.

IN: Simon Vukcevic (Sporting Lisbon, £2m), David Goodwillie (Dundee United, £2m), Myles Anderson (Aberdeen, undisclosed), Radosav Petrovic (Partizan Belgrade, undisclosed), Bruno Ribiero (Gremio Prudente, free)

Gary Cahill

Who's coming?

The most likely transfers look to be consolations for the departure of Gary Cahill (right). Tottenham may offer out-of-favour Sebastien Bassong and David Bentley to sweeten any deal. David Ngog could arrive from Liverpool.

Who's going?

Cahill's departure seems more likely each day but it's just a case of who he is going to. Everyone else at the club looks to be staying put.

IN: Chris Eagles and Tyrone Mears (Burnley, joint £3m), Darren Pratley (Swansea, free), Nigel Reo-Coker (Aston Villa, free), Tuncay (Wolfsburg, loan), Dedryck Boyata (Man City, loan)

OUT: Ali Al Habsi (Wigan, £4m), Matt Taylor (West Ham, £2.2m), Danny Ward (Huddersfield, undisclosed), Johan Elmander (Galatasaray, free), Tamir Cohen (Maccabi Haifa, free), Joey O'Brien (West Ham, free), Jlloyd Samuel (released), Gavin McCann (retired).


Luka Modric

Luk-ing good: Modric is on the brink of sealing a move to Chelsea


Who's coming?

A deal for Luka Modric is inching closer but in case it falls through, the Blues are tracking Joao Moutinho and Raul Meireles. Either way expect a much needed playmaker to arrive at Stamford Bridge.

Who's going?

Yossi Benayoun could be used as a carrot to entice Tottenham over Modric but a packed midfield may see promising youngster Josh McEachran leave on loan.

IN: Juan Mata (Valencia, £29m), Romelu Lukaku (Anderlecht, £20m), Thibaud Courtois (Genk, £5m). Oriol Romeu (Barcelona, £4.4m), Lucas Piazon (Sao Paulo, undisclosed), Ulises Davila (Chivas Guadalajara, undisclosed).

OUT: Michael Mancienne (Hamburg, £3m), Yury Zhirkov (Anzhi, undisclosed), Nemanja Matic (Benfica, undisclosed), Fabio Borini (Parma, undisclosed), Michael Woods (released), Thibaud Courtois (Atletico Madrid, loan), Jeffrey Bruma (Hamburg, loan), Slobodan Rajkovic (Hamburg, £1.8m), Ulises Davila (Vitesse Arnhem, loan).


Who's coming?

David Moyes

A new tea lady maybe? Once again there has been precious little activity at Everton with David Moyes (above) set to have his feet up at home come Wednesday evening.

Who's going?

Interest seems to have cooled on Jack Rodwell but Phil Jagielka (right) is still a big target for clubs set to miss out on Gary Cahill.

IN: Eric Dier ( Sporting Lisbon, loan).

OUT: James Vaughan (Norwich, £2.5m), Iain Turner (Preston, free), Kieran Agard (Yeovil, free), Hope Akpan (Crawley, free), Nathan Craig (released).


Who's coming?

Martin Jol is never one to shy away from a transfer market and the Dutchman is still looking busy with defender Zdenek Grygera and Crystal Palace teenager Wilfried Zaha both targets.

Who's going?

Clint Dempsey may have had his head turned by Sevilla while Andy Johnson could drop to the Championship with Leicester.

IN: Pajtim Kasami (Palermo, £4m), John Arne Riise (Roma, £2.4m), Marcel Gecov (Slovan Liberec, undisclosed), Dan Burn (Darlington, undisclosed), Csaba Somogyi (Rakospalotai, free).

OUT: Jonathan Greening (Nottingham Forest, £670,000), Kagisho Dikgacoi (Crystal Palace, undisclosed), Zoltan Gera (West Brom, free), Diomansy Kamara (Eskisehirspor, free), John Paintsil (Leicester, free), Eddie Johnson (released), Pascal Zuberbuhler (released), David Stockdale (Ipswich, loan), Lauri Dalla Valle (Dundee United, loan),Carlos Salcido (Tigres, loan).


Who's coming?

The Reds have spent over £50million this summer but still don't look done as Kenny Dalglish eyes a centre-back with flavour of the month Gary Cahill a target.

Who's going?

A truck load of midfielders including Joe Cole, Raul Meireles and Christin Poulsen could all move on. David Ngog may be a makeweight in any deal for Cahill.

IN: Jose Enrique (Newcastle, £6m), Stewart Downing (Liverpool, £20m), Jordan Henderson (Sunderland, £16m), Charlie Adam (£9m), Alexander Doni (Roma, free).

OUT: Paul Konchesky (Leicester, £1.5m), Emiliano Insua (Sporting Lisbon, undisclosed), Daniel Ayala (Norwich, undisclosed),Milan Jovanovic (Anderlecht, free), Tom Ince (Blackpool, free), Stephen Darby (Rochdale, loan), Sotirios Kyrgiakos (Wolfsburg, free), Alberto Aquilani (AC Milan, loan), Daniel Pacheco (Atletico Madrid, loan).

No takers: Tevez looks set to stay with Manchester City

No takers: Tevez looks set to stay with Manchester City


Who's coming?

Roberto Mancini could pull off the shock of the summer by signing Owen Hargreaves who left rivals Manchester United in the summer and would arrive on a free as back-up for the first team.

Who's going?

Plenty on the cusp. Shaun Wright-Phillips is almost certain to leave along with Craig Bellamy and Wayne Bridge. Carlos Tevez wants out but there appears to be no suitable takers.

IN: Samir Nasri (Arsenal, £24m), Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid, £38m), Gael Clichy (Arsenal, £7m), Stefan Savic (Partizan Belgrade, £6m), Costel Pantilimon (Poli Timisoara, undisclosed).

Emmanuel Adebayor (Tottenham, loan), Dedryck Boyata (Bolton, loan), Roque Santa Cruz (Real Betis, loan), Vladimir Weiss (Espanyol, loan).


Who's coming?

Paul Scholes

Fresh faced summer arrivals and returning loan stars have made United formidable, but Sir Alex Ferguson may still have an eye out on a replacement for the retired Paul Scholes (right).

Who's going?

Nemanja Vidic should remain at Old Trafford. Darron Gibson's injury means he could be staying put for at least six months, while Federico Macheda and keeper Tomasz Kuszczak could leave on loan.

IN: David De Gea (Atletico Madrid, £17.8m), Phil Jones (Blackburn, £16.5m), Ashley Young (Aston Villa, £16m).

OUT: Gabriel Obertan (Newcastle, £3.25m), Wes Brown (Sunderland, £1m), John O'Shea (Sunderland, undisclosed), Owen Hargreaves (released), Paul Scholes (retired), Edwin van der Sar (retired), Bebe (Besiktas, loan), Ritchie de Laet (Norwich, loan).


Who's coming? A replacement for Joey Barton is a must with Chelsea's out-of-favour Yossi Benayoun a target, while a move for Inter Milan full-back Davide Santon looks a done deal.

Who's going? Nile Ranger's off-the-pitch problems mean he is free to leave, with ex-Toon boss Chris Hughton keen to take him to Birmingham. Alan Smith also looks set to move on.

IN: Yohan Cabaye (Lille, £4.3m), Gabriel Obertan (Manchester United, £3.25m), Sylvain Marveaux (Rennes, free), Mehdi Abeid (Lens, free), Demba Ba (West Ham, free).

OUT: Jose Enrique (Liverpool, £6m), Kevin Nolan (West Ham, £4m), Wayne Routledge (Swansea, undisclosed), Ben Tozer (Northampton, free), Sol Campbell (released), Shefki Kuqi (released), Kazenga Lua Lua (Brighton, loan), Xisco (Deportivo La Coruna, loan), Fraser Forster (Celtic, loan), Joey Barton (QPR, free), James Tavernier (Carlisle, loan).


Who's coming?

A busy summer and a positive start to the season means Paul Lambert may resist further additions. Any deadline day action may see the Canaries boss bring in loan cover for crocked Daniel Ayala.

Who's going?

A few fringe players could head for the exit after the mass recruitment but Lambert's squad nucleus should remain intact.

IN: Steve Morison (Millwall, £2.8m), James Vaughan (Everton, £2.5m), Anthony Pilkington (Huddersfield, £2m), Daniel Ayala (Liverpool, undisclosed),Elliott Bennett (Brighton, undisclosed), Bradley Johnson (Leeds, free), Ritchie De Laet (Manchester United, loan), Kyle Naughton (Tottenham, loan).

OUT: Owain Tudur Jones (Inverness, undisclosed), Steven Smith (Preston, free), Luke Daley, (Plymouth, free), Matt Gill (Bristol Rovers, free), Sam Habergham (Tamworth, free), Jens Berthel Askou (Vejle Kolding, free).

Staying put: Queens Park Rangers skipper Adel Taarabt

Staying put: Queens Park Rangers skipper Adel Taarabt


Who's coming?

Neil Warnock has been a regular in the transfer gossip columns in recent weeks and he doesn't look like he is about to vanish with Shaun Wright-Phillips and Scott Dann next in line for the QPR boss.

Who's going?

Not Adel Taarabt and his commitment to QPR for this season could be all the difference between Warnock's side staying up or crashing back towards the Championship.  

IN: DJ Campbell (Blackpool, £1.2m), Danny Gabbidon (West Ham, free), Kieron Dyer (West Ham, free), Jay Bothroyd (Cardiff, free), Brian Murphy (Ipswich, free), Bruno Perone (Tombense, free), Joey Barton (Newcastle, free), Armand Traore (Arsenal, undisclosed).

OUT: Mikele Leigertwood, (Reading, undisclosed), Georgias Tofas (Anagennisi Dherynia, free), Josh Parker (Oldham, free), Joe Oastler (Torquay, free), Lee Brown (Bristol Rovers, free), Pascal Chimbonda (released), Gavin Mahon (Notts County, free), Romone Rose (Muangthong United, free), Peter Ramage (Crystal Palace, loan), Angelo Balanta (MK Dons, loan), Leon Clarke (Swindon, free), Kaspars Gorkss (Reading, loan), Michael Doughty (Crawley, loan).


Peter Crouch

Who's coming?

Tottenham's Wilson Palacios and Peter Crouch (right) as Tony Pulis aims to add strength and depth for a domestic and European campaign. Crystal Palace's Wilfied Zaha is also on the radar.

Who's going?

Keeper Thomas Sorensen may feel he deserves better than playing second fiddle to Asmir Begovic while Uruguayan forward Diego Arismendi has failed to impress.

IN: Jonathan Woodgate (Tottenham, free), Matthew Upson (West Ham, free).

OUT: Carl Dickinson (Watford, undisclosed), Eidur Gudjohnsen (AEK Athens, free), Abdoulaye Faye (West Ham, free), Ibrahima Sonko (Ipswich, free), Andrew Davies (Crystal Palace, loan).



Who's coming?

Despite going crazy with signings, Bruce still needs a striker and a tall one at that judging by his targets. Peter Crouch,  Wolfsburg's Patrick Helmes and Freiburg's Papiss Demba Cisse are on his wishlist.

Who's going?

The exit door looks shut. The majority of the dead wood has been cleared at the Stadium of Light and Bruce won't want his squad too thin after the injury crisis from last season.

IN: Connor Wickham (Ipswich, £13m), Craig Gardner (Birmingham, £5m), Ahmed Elmohamady (ENPPI, £2m), Ji Dong-won (Chunnam Dragons, £2m), Wes Brown (Man United, £1m), James McClean (Derry City, £350,000), John O'Shea (Man United, undisclosed), Sebastian Larsson (Birmingham, free), David Vaughan (Blackpool, free), Keiren Westwood (Coventry, free).

OUT: Jordan Henderson (Liverpool, £16m), Steed Malbranque (St Etienne, undisclosed), Nathan Luscombe (Hartlepool, free), Michael Kay (Tranmere, free), Bolo Zenden (released), Cristian Riveros (Kayserispor, loan), George McCartney (West Ham, loan).


Who's coming?

Still no top flight goals but Jacks boss Brendan Rodgers will keep faith with the strikers he has signed. He may dip back into the market though to replace long serving Alan Tate after his freak injury – Matthew Bates is set to arrive at the Liberty Stadium.

Who's going?

Fending off Liverpool interest in Nathan Dyer has been a success but a few fringe players that flopped in the Carling Cup exit at Shrewsbury could be off.

IN: Michel Vorm (Utrecht, £1.5M), Danny Graham (Watford, £3.5m), Leroy Lita (Middlesbrough, £1.75m), Wayne Routledge (Newcastle, undisclosed), Jose Moreira (Benfica, undisclosed), Steven Caulker (Totteham, loan)

OUT: Shuan MacDonald (Bournemouth, £80,000),Dorus de Vries (Wolves, free), Darren Pratley (Bolton, free), Albert Serran (AEK Larnaca, free), Kerry Morgan (Neath, free), Cedric van der Gun (released), Gorka Pintado (AEK Larnaca, free), Yves Ma-Makalamby (released), Scott Donnelly (Wycombe, loan).

White Hart Lane exit: Palacios could be sold

White Hart Lane exit: Palacios could be sold


Who's coming?

Harry Redknapp is desperate for a defensive midfielder and a striker but may find he has run out of time to find a replacement for Luka Modric should he be sold.

Who's going?

David Bentley, Wilson Palacios, Sebastien Bassong and any of Tottenham's strikers could head for the exit to try and raise some funds. Oh, and Luka Modric.

IN: Brad Friedel (Aston Villa, free), Cristian Ceballos (Barcelona, free), Souleymane Coulibaly (Siena, undisclosed), Emmanuel Adebayor (Man City, loan), Yago Falque (Juventus, loan).

OUT: Jamie O'Hara (Wolves, £5m), Robbie Keane (LA Galaxy, £1.8m), Jonathan Woodgate (Stoke, free), Kyle Naughton (Norwich, loan), Steven Caulker (Swansea, loan), Bongani Khumalo (Reading, loan), Ryan Mason (Doncaster, loan), Jonathan Obika (Yeovil, loan).


Who's coming?

A loan move or otherwise for Nedum Onuhoa. The defender would be a much needed acquisition to a back four that has kept just one clean sheet in the last year.

Who's going?

And Marek Cech doesn't fit into Roy Hodgson's plans for a solution with the defender anxious for first-team football after losing his place under the former Liverpool boss.

IN: Shane Long (Reading, £6.5m), Zoltan Gera (Fulham, free), Marton Fulop (Ipswich, free), Gareth McAuley (Ipswich, free), Billy Jones (Preston, free), Ben Foster (Birmingham, loan).

OUT: Scott Carson (Bursaspor, £2.1m), Ishmael Miller (Nottingham Forest £1.2m), Borja Valero (Villarreal, undisclosed), Abdoulaye Meite (Dijon, free), Gianni Zuiverloon (Real Mallorca, free), Giles Barnes (Doncaster, free), Dean Kiely (retired), Boaz Myhill (Birmingham, loan), Chris Wood (Birmingham, loan).


Who's coming?

Hopefully a replacement or two for Charles N’Zogbia. Albert Crusat has arrived but a move for Spurs flop Giovani Dos Santos also interests Roberto Martinez.

Who's going?

James McArthur (not to be confused with McCarthy) has struggled to nail down a first-team spot and may leave, while promising striker Callum McManaman could seek a loan move.

IN: Ali Al Habsi (Bolton, £4m), David Jones (Wolves, free), Nouha Dicko (released, free).

OUT: Charles N'Zogbia (Aston Villa, £9.5m), Antonio Amaya (Real Betis, undisclosed), Daniel de Ridder (Grasshopper Zurich, free), Mauro Boselli (Estudiantes, loan), Steven Caldwell (Birmingham, free), Jason Koumas (released).


Who's coming?

Nobody according to Mick McCarthy. The Wolves boss is happy with the squad he has got despite the injury suffered by striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

Who's going?

McCarthy won't be keen to let too many go but will be open to offers for midfielder Nenad Milijas and striker Sam Vokes.

IN: Roger Johnson (Birmingham, £7m), Jamie O'Hara (Tottenham, £5m), Dorus De Vries (Swansea, free).

OUT: Greg Halford (Portsmouth, undisclosed), David Jones (Wigan, free), Geoffrey Mujangi Bia (Standard Liege, free), Marcus Hahnemann (released), Steven Mouyokolo (Sochaux, loan), Danny Batth (Sheffield Wednesday, loan), Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Sheffield United, loan).
