Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool can still add 7 signings to their rosters despite the transfer window closed

The summer transfer market has closed with the September 1 deadline, following three months of player movements and speculation over their futures.

However, for clubs like as  Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool, their business may not be over as free agents continue to seek new teams.

If a player’s contract has been terminated before to the transfer deadline, they are entitled to join a club outside the transfer window.

Obviously, some of the most prominent free agents, such as Antonio Rudiger and Paul Pogba, have already been signed.

But there are still plenty of options for managers to bolster their respective squads for teams searching for bargains.

 SportsDias examines the players who might still be on the move beyond the 1 September transfer deadline, with grueling game schedules perhaps luring managers into offering short-term agreements.

Memphis Depay

The Dutch attacker has been feverishly trying to negotiate a contract termination with Barcelona, despite having spent just one season in Catalonia and having one year remaining on his present contract.

After being signed by Ronald Koeman, the 29-year-old scored 13 goals in his debut season with Barça.

However, his playing time has decreased under Xavi Hernandez, who is pleased to see him depart after succeeding Koeman.

Chelsea and West Ham allegedly inquired about acquiring the former Manchester United attacker on a free transfer on the final day of the transfer window, and there might be news of a late arrival in London before this weekend’s Premier League action.

Diego Costa

Costa has a higher chance of scoring against Chelsea than rejoining his former team following his tumultuous departure in 2017, but it is important to remember that he was a dangerous scorer in his heyday.

Since leaving Atletico Mineiro earlier this year, the 33-year-old has been connected with a number of Premier League teams, including Wolves, West Ham, and even Arsenal at one point.

Although his record of 52 goals in 89 Premier League appearances for Chelsea is impressive, the enigmatic striker has a propensity to create a path of controversy wherever he goes. But if top-flight clubs struggle to score goals this winter, Costa might be their guy.

Dan-Axel Zagadou

Remember Liverpool’s defensive dilemma in 2021, when they paired Nathaniel Phiilips and Rhys Williams in the middle of the defense? If a similar circumstance were to occur, Jurgen Klopp may closely monitor Dan-Axel Zagadou’s condition.

The Frenchman spent five years with Borussia Dortmund, but he declined a new contract with the Black Yellow because he was regarded as a bit player at Signal Iduna Park.

However, as an uncommon left-footed center back, he provides coaches that employ a three-man defense with a valuable alternative. And as an emergency acquisition, the 23-year-old would be a valuable asset to any Premier League club.

Ross Barkley

To assist the former England international in finding a new club, Chelsea agreed to release Barkley from his £100,000-per-week contract with 10 months remaining.

No team has taken a chance on the player as of yet.

Celtic and Rangers, the two largest teams in Scotland, have been linked to a transfer, although Newcastle and Southampton have also been mentioned.

A return to Goodison Park to rejoin with his former club and former manager Frank Lampard appears to be the most likely choice for the 28-year-old, who will be eager to prove that he can still compete at the highest level.

Jason Denayer

Denayer, a former Manchester City player, departed Lyon unexpectedly this summer despite his significance to the Ligue 1 club, with whom he made 139 games.

After selling Willy Boly to Nottingham Forest, Wolves are rumored to have conducted discussions over a possible transfer to Molineux with the Belgian defender. However, he has yet to find a new club.

Juan Mata

Mata is one of the few players that is more used to the English Premier League in terms of experience.

After a decade with Chelsea and Manchester United, the Spaniard departed to consider his alternatives prior to a final move.

A rumored return to Spain with his boyhood club Real Oviedo has been rumored, as has a weak connection with Leeds United.

The Daily Mail reports that Mata rejected offers from MLS clubs in the United States because he wants to continue playing at the greatest level in Europe, hinting that the 34-year-old may believe that waiting a little longer for another Premier League club is worth it.

Tom Rogic

Few players have been as consistent in Scottish football as Australian midfielder Rogic, therefore it is rather surprising that he has failed to find a new club since leaving Celtic.

The center midfielder departed the club after nine years and more than 200 matches. However, anticipated moves to Indonesia and Cyprus have both fallen through, and Australia coach Graham Arnold is eager to learn what the future holds for him before to choosing his World Cup group.

A stint in the Premier League, even as a reserve, could do wonders for Rogic’s chances and establish that he belongs in one of Europe’s top five leagues. However, given rumors of a likely retirement, according to The Daily Record, this is now a significant if.
