What time does the transfer window close on Thursday and when does it close across Europe?

Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to move to Chelsea before the transfer deadline (Picture: Getty Images)We are now counting down till the end of the transfer window in hours rather than days with the deadline looming on Thursday evening.

Premier League and EFL clubs have precious little time left to bring in the players they need for the coming months, with another opportunity not arising until the January window.

However, they can still sell players to clubs abroad because English clubs have brought their transfer deadline forward, but it remains at the end of August across Europe.

Here is everything you need to know about when transfers will come to a close for the summer…

Could Paul Pogba leave Manchester United this summer? (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer window close in the Premier League and the EFL?

All the top four flights in England see their transfer windows close at 5pm BST on Thursday, 9 August.

Premier League clubs will not be able to complete loan deals or sign free agents after this deadline either.

Football League clubs will be able to do both until the end of August, though.

Jack Grealish is being heavily linked with a move from Aston Villa to Tottenham (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer deadline close across Europe?

Most of the big European leagues see their transfer windows close on 31 August.

In Spain, France, Germany, Scotland, Russia, Turkey, Belgium and others, their transfer deadlines are on 31 August.

However, there are some notable exceptions, with Italy’s closing on 17 August, Sweden’s on 11 August and Netherlands on 3 September.

Can foreign teams still buy Premier League players after the transfer window closes?

Paul Pogba’s future is in doubt (Picture: PA)The Premier League made the bold step of moving the dates of the transfer window quite significantly this year, and it could have a big impact long past when the deadline passes in England.

The summer transfer has been slamming shut at the end of August in recent years, but the Premier League clubs voted to move it earlier, so it closed when the season started.

With the campaign beginning on the evening of Friday, 10 August 2018, the transfer window will close at 5pm on Thursday, 9 August.

But with foreign clubs not closing their transfer windows at this point, does that mean they can still buy players from English clubs after 9 August?

Thibaut Courtois looks set to leave Chelsea (Picture: AP Photo)Yes, it does.

Whilst Premier League and EFL clubs won’t be able to buy players past their 5pm deadline on Thursday, they will still be prone to having their players whisked away to foreign climes.

Clubs across Europe will be able to buy players until their deadlines past, which mostly fall on 31 August.

English clubs are going to be much less likely to sell their best players as they will not be able to bring in replacements, but the deals are very much able to be done.

Anthony Martial could still be out of the Old Trafford exit door (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer window close across Europe?

In Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Scotland, Netherlands and Russia the transfer deadline is on 31 August.

In Portugal, the transfer window doesn’t close until 22 September, whilst Turkey closes on 8 September.

Lyon boss isn’t ruling out late Nabil Fekir move amid Chelsea interest

Nabil Fekir has been linked with a move to Chelsea ahead of transfer deadline day (Getty Images)Lyon manager Bruno Genesio isn’t ruling out a possible late exit for Nabil Fekir amid transfer rumours suggesting Chelsea are trying to sign him.

Fekir was left out of OL’s squad that faced the Blues last night in the team’s last pre-season friendly of the summer ahead of their first Premier League match this Saturday against Huddersfield at The John Smith’s Stadium.

Reports suggest the London club will try to lure the France international to Stamford Bridge after Liverpool saw a deal for the midfielder collapse earlier in the summer.

According to Sky Sports, Genesio isn’t sure Fekir will stay with the Ligue 1 side and claimed anything is possible, even with just over 24 hours remaining of the Premier League transfer window.

‘It’s too early to say. He wanted to leave at the end of last season, but came back to training yesterday and was happy,’ he said.

‘Who knows? There may be opportunities that come up before the end of the window. For now, he is a Lyon player.’

Liverpool came close to landing the Frenchman but were concerned by medical reports regarding some long-running knee problems and pulled the plug when Lyon refused to re-structure the deal.

Nabil Fekir was linked with a move to Liverpool but the deal fell through (Getty Images)Chelsea have recently joined the race to sign the Frenchman as new boss Maurizio Sarri has had very little time to prepare his side for the new campaign.

Blues striker Olivier Giroud revealed that he and team-mate Eden Hazard tried to convince the 25-year-old to join the squad after negotiations with Liverpool fell through.

Fekir has said that he is ‘very happy’ at Lyon but hasn’t ruled out the possibility of leaving the club.

‘As you can see, I am in Lyon. I am very happy here,’ he said.

‘But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very quickly in football. We don’t know what will happen in the future but I am very happy at Lyon.

‘I feel brilliant in this squad. We have very good players, a great atmosphere. We feel good together and I hope that Lyon will have a very good season.’

Nabil Fekir left out of Lyon squad to face Chelsea amid transfer links

Fekir returned to Lyon on Monday for pre-season (Picture: AFP)Nabil Fekir will not play against Chelsea on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge amid transfer rumours the Blues are trying to sign the Lyon star.

Lyon travel to London to take on Chelsea in an International Champions Cup game, which will also serve as the Blues’ final pre-season game this summer.

Maurizio Sarri has had precious little time to prepare his players for the new season and is reportedly still desperately trying to bring in reinforcements.

Reports out of France claim Chelsea will try to lure Fekir to London after Liverpool saw a deal for the midfielder collapse earlier in the summer.

Liverpool were concerned by medical reports on a previous knee injury, and pulled the plug on the transfer as a result when Lyon refused to re-structure the deal.

Lyon are prepared to cash in on Fekir, but will not allow the France international to exit without securing a hefty transfer fee.

Chelsea are said to be chasing the midfielder (Picture: AFP)And with both sides set to clash on Tuesday, Lyon confirmed Fekir had been left behind in France.

Fekir only just returned to Lyon training on Monday after France won the World Cup, and is still building up his fitness.

Lyon announced Fekir was still ‘recovering’, meaning Sarri will be denied the chance to get an up close look at the playmaker.

Chelsea enter race to sign Nabil Fekir ahead of Liverpool

Nabil Fekir is on Chelsea’s radar. (BPI/REX/Shutterstock)Chelsea have entered the race to sign Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir ahead of Liverpool, according to reports in France.

The 25-year-old was on the brink of joining Liverpool in a £53 million deal in June but the move collapsed following the midfielder’s medical.

Liverpool raised concerns over Fekir’s right knee after he needed two operations in the space of 12 months to fix a cruciate ligament rupture in September 2015.

Jurgen Klopp’s side subsequently pulled out of the deal and Fekir still remains a Lyon player with the transfer window due to close on Thursday evening.

But according to France Football, Chelsea will launch an attempt to sign Fekir before the end of the window.

Chelsea have already been boosted by signing Jorginho from Napoli but Maurizio Sarri is keen for the club to strengthen even further and is targeted another new midfielder.

‘We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics would be a good fit.’

Fekir, meanwhile, is back in training with Lyon following his appearances for France at the World Cup this summer and the midfielder has indicated that he would still be prepared to leave the club before the transfer window closes.

‘As you can see, I am in Lyon. I am very happy here,’ Fekir told Lyon’s official TV channel on Monday.

When does the transfer window close and why is it early this year?

There have been some big moves so far this summer (Picture: Metro/Getty Images)The Premier League is back this week and after a change to the schedule this season, that means the transfer window will be slamming shut.

Not wanting to be distracted by trying to complete transfers when the season starts, Premier League clubs voted to close the transfer window much earlier than in previous years.

EFL clubs followed suit, meaning that no English clubs will be able to bring in players after this week.

But when exactly is the transfer window closing?

Lucas Torreira is a new arrival at Arsenal (Picture: Getty)The transfer window closes at 5pm BST on Thursday, 9 August 2018.

This is over 24 hours before the Premier League season starts on Friday, 10 August when Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford, kicking-off at 8pm.

The Championship, League One and League Two have all begun already, but their windows will also close at 5pm on Thursday.

Richarlison has swapped Watford for Everton (Picture: Getty Images)The Premier League clubs voted to move the end of the transfer window to the start of the season with 14 clubs in favour, five against and one abstention.

The five votes against came from Manchester City, Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Watford and Swansea.

When the EFL clubs came to vote on doing the same thing, 40 voted in favour and 29 against.

Fred has been Manchester United’s biggest signing of the summer so far (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer window close across Europe?

In Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Scotland, Netherlands and Russia the transfer deadline is on 31 August.

In Portugal, the transfer window doesn’t close until 22 September, whilst Turkey closes on 8 September.
