CHELSEA have bid a British-RECORD £115million for Benfica ace Enzo Fernandez – and they've got all of Deadline Day to secure a deal.

The Blues’ pursuit of the World Cup winning Argentinian midfielder appeared dead in the water after the Portuguese side stood firm on the mammoth release clause.

Joao Cancelo is reportedly on the brink of joining Bayern Munich in a shock loan move from Manchester City.

And Tottenham's move for Sporting's Pedro Porro is back ON ahead of the transfer window slamming shut.

    Antonio set to stay at West Ham

    David Moyes reckons there's "no chance" Michail Antonio leaves West Ham today.

    He said: "Money talks in football everywhere but at the moment, no, I'd say there's no chance.

    "Let's be fair, there's probably prices for every player around the country but at the moment, I don't think there's any price we are interested in taking for Mick.

    "I'd probably say no to that."

    Ziyech finalising PSG move

    The winger has been out of favour under Graham Potter and reports in France claim he's now on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge before today's deadline.

    Chelsea don't want Gallagher signing for a rival

    Chelsea are reluctant to allow Conor Gallagher to move to a rival.

    The 22-year-old could leave the Blues today if they land Enzo Fernandez from Benfica.

    Everton have bid £40million plus £5m in add-ons but the England midfielder is not interested in moving to Goodison Park.

    Newcastle are keen, though a loan would suit them better, but Chelsea would need to be convinced to let the player go to a club competing with them for a Champions League spot.

    The same could be said for the Big Six clubs that are monitoring Gallagher's situation.

    Crystal Palace are certain to be interested in bringing him back on loan after borrowing him with such success last season.

    Right now, SunSport understands a number of scenarios are on the table – including the possibility of staying, even if Fernandez signs.

    It could depend on if Chelsea sign another midfielder separate to the Argentine World Cup winner – and whether Jorginho departs.

    Porro on the verge of Tottenham move

    Pedro Porro flew into London last night and will have his Tottenham medical this morning.

    Spurs finally agreed a deal with Sporting Lisbon on Monday after a month of drawn-out negotiations.

    The move at one point looked in doubt due to Sporting's ever-changing demands.

    But Tottenham eventually signed off on a switch that could eventually cost them £45million – as well as knocking 15 per cent off their 50 per cent sell-on clause for former academy graduate Marcus Edwards.

    Porro is expected to be Tottenham's last senior signing on deadline day.

    Big spenders

    Southampton have triggered the £26m release clause of Braga striker Vitinha.

    The 22-year-old has been in fine form in the Portugal top flight so far this season, scoring 13 goals in 27 games in all competitions.

    Vitinha has also shone in the Europa League for Braga, scoring four and assisting once in five matches despite crashing out of the group stages.

    And SunSport understands the goal-shy Saints are ready to splash the cash in order to bring the Portuguese Under-21 international to St Mary’s before Tuesday's deadline.

    Pedro Porro travelled to London last night to complete his move to Tottenham.

    A breakthrough was finally reached on Monday night with Spurs set to pay around £39m for the right-back's services.

    At Lisbon airport, he said: "I'm grateful to Sporting, I love the club, I didn't train as I was only focused on the transfer to Spurs but I will always be thankful to the club."

    Gunns loaded

    Arsenal are still hoping to land a last-gasp deal for Moises Caicedo ahead of the transfer deadline, writes Mark Irwin.

    But whatever happens with the Brighton midfielder will not affect Arsenal’s plans to sign West Ham captain Declan Rice this summer.

    The Premier League leaders have been given the green light by owner Stan Kroenke to get the Caicedo deal over the line.

    That is even if it means paying a club-record fee.

    They have already had two bids rejected by Brighton owner Tony Bloom, who maintains that the 21-year-old Ecuador international is not for sale at any price.

    But they are ready to make one last bid to persuade the Seagulls to cash in and are willing to go as high as £75million.

    Done deal – Gil to Sevilla

    Tottenham winger Bryan Gil has joined Sevilla on loan for the rest of the season.

    The Spaniard left the Spanish giants for London in a £21.5million move in 2021.

    But Gil has struggled to make an impact, failing to score in 30 appearances.

    And he now will be hoping to rediscover his old form in familiar surroundings.

    But Southampton are confident of landing him before tonight's deadline in a bargain transfer.

    Souttar, 24, impressed at the World Cup as Australia reached the last 16.

    And Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers, a long-term admirer, has made a late move to bring the Aberdeen-born centre-back to the King Power Stadium.

    On his way

    Fulham are set to release Josh Onomah amid interest from Championship clubs, according to reports.

    The midfielder has seen his game reduce significantly since playing 20 times as Fulham won the Championship last season.

    Onomah has struggled to establish himself in the top flight after making 11 appearances in 2020-21 and just two this year.

    Fulham are in talks with Onomah to cancel his contract six months before it was due to expire, claim Sky Sports.

    It is claimed several Championship clubs are interested in signing the former Tottenham star, who joined Fulham in 2019.

    Lescott upbeat about Dyche appointment

    Ex-Everton defender Joleon Lescott reckons that Sean Dyche could turn things around at Goodison Park.

    Dyche was confirmed as Frank Lampard's replacement earlier today and Lescott is optimistic about his appointment.

    He told Live Score: "Not only does the 51-year-old have Premier League experience, but he's actually worked first-hand with some of the Everton squad in Dwight McNeil, Michael Keane and James Tarkowski.

    "That's got to be a huge advantage when it comes to getting your ideas across quickly as a coach, having players in the building that know what you expect and can help their team-mates adjust.

    "Some managers would look at Everton's current situation and think 'no thanks'.

    "For Dyche, he's been there and done it with Burnley many times before and will not be fazed."

    HT. Derby 0-1 West Ham

    West Ham are 45 minutes away from a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup thanks to Jarrod Bowen's first half strike at Derby.
