There’s only a few days to go until the transfer window shuts for a whole four months, with millions of pounds worth of talent deemed surplus to requirements by their clubs, but hard to get rid of, set to go stale.
With plenty of Premier League clubs in need, we’ve turned matchmaker:
Samir Nasri to Sunderland
The Black Cats are relying on the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Wahbi Khazri and Steven Pienaar to provide a spark, so why not turn to the 29-year-old two-time Premier League winner and former French Player of the Year?
Sunderland have been linked with Nasri’s Manchester City teammate Joe Hart, also unwanted by boss Pep Guardiola, so David Moyes could look for a job lot to relieve the Catalan of two significant pains.
Nasri has been linked with a loan move to Besiktas. The opportunity to prolong his Premier League career could tempt.
Loic Remy to Burnley
The Clarets’ striking ranks weren’t exactly brimming before Andre Gray’s Twitter troubles, and with last season’s Championship top scorer now facing a ban, Sean Dyche’s side lacks firepower.
Remy has played the part of relief striker well at Chelsea, making 47 appearances in total since signing two years ago and scoring 12 times.
If he’s sick of playing second fiddle, regular football at Burnley could tempt the 29-year-old.
Carl Jenkinson to Hull
Having smashed his knee while on loan at West Ham in January, Jenkinson is back in training with Arsenal, a club the 24-year-old hasn’t played a minute for since May 2014.
When he gets fit, Jenkinson has little-to-no chance of usurping Hector Bellerin in the right-back role, so why not head to a club that could really use him?
Hull’s great start to the campaign has come about despite only 13 senior players managing to make Mike Phelan’s Premier League squad, so reinforcements are desperately needed.
John Flanagan has already seen some game time, albeit in the EFL Cup, after heading to Burnley on loan from Liverpool following an injury nightmare, and Jenkinson will need the minutes.
