Manchester United worked frantically to get all their business done on deadline day. They signed Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, and also sprung a surprise by arranging the January transfer of Amad Traore from Atalanta. One misstep perhaps was their inability to persuade Ousmane Dembele to jump ship from Barcelona, which may have cost Memphis Depay his desired move from Lyon.

24/11/2020 AT 09:51

Arsenal secured the signature of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid as they paid up his release clause with only hours remaining of the window. Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester City did nothing of note. However, attention will now turn to the Championship and whether players like Josh King, Todd Cantwell and Ismaila Sarr will make the return journey to the top flight.

19:45 - Juventus sign Chiesa

Serie A champions Juventus signed Federico Chiesa, the outstanding player of smaller rivals Fiorentina, in a €50m deal on Monday, hours before the end of the transfer window.

The 22-year-old was raised at Fiorentina and is the son of former player Enrico Chiesa who was in the team which won Fiorentina's last major trophy, the Coppa Italia in 2001.

Chiesa made his professional debut for Fiorentina in 2016 and went on to make 153 appearances, scoring 34 goals, although he has been the subject of transfer speculation for at least two years. He has 19 caps and one goal for Italy.

Juventus said that the deal consisted of a two-season loan, worth €10m, followed by an obligation to buy for a further €40m, plus up to €10m more based on "further performance objectives."

Although he was a key player at Fiorentina, Chiesa will have to fight for his place at Juventus who already boast Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Alvaro Morata and Federico Bernardeschi, another former Fiorentina player.

Earlier on Monday, Juventus, chasing a tenth successive Serie A title, loaned Brazilian winger Douglas Costa to Bayern Munich and full back Mattia De Sciglio to Olympique Lyonnais.

Juve's major signing for this season was Brazilian midfielder Arthur from Barcelona. They have also signed Morata from Atletico Madrid and U.S. midfielder Weston McKennie from Schalke 04.
