Chelsea could release former Everton star on a free, Tottenham defender ‘close’ to Atletico Madrid loan

The latest round of English top flight football fixtures concludes today and the focus of clubs will turn entirely to the final few days of the summer transfer window.

Yesterday’s action saw Arsenal remain top of the table as they came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 in the London derby at the Emirates Stadium.

Elsewhere, Chelsea managed a 2-1 home win over Leicester City with a Raheem sterling double despite playing a large part of the game with ten men while Crystal Palace let a two goal lead slip to lose 4-2 at Manchester City and Brentford recorded a 1-1 draw at home to Everton.

West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur are both in action today with the Hammers travelling to Aston Villa and Spurs heading to Nottingham Forest.

Away from the action on the pitch, clubs across the country could be in for a busy few days of transfer action.
