Transfer Deadline LIVE! Chelsea set to announce Aubameyang and Zakaria; Update from Douglas Luiz to Arsenal; Tottenham last

The transfer window has officially closed as final deals are being worked out by Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. The Gunners wanted to further strengthen their midfield but failed with THREE offers for Douglas Luiz – and also missed out on signing Danilo after exploring that deal. Hector Bellerin is expected to sign for Barcelona on a free transfer.

Chelsea have agreed a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with Marcos Alonso heading to Barcelona on a plus-money player deal. The Blues missed out on Memphis Depay but had better luck with Denis Zakaria, with the Swiss midfielder passing his medical after Ajax defensive midfielder Edson Alvarez and PSG superstar Neymar were left behind.

Tottenham opted out of signing Dan James, with Fulham ready to loan out the Leeds man, but they are still hoping to land Manchester City starlet Adedire Mebude. Bryan Gil went nowhere with no replacements found by Spurs. Follow all the latest transfer news, rumors and gossip as the transfer deadline draws to a close with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below!
