Breaking: 12 Premier League deals that could still happen this month

The end of the January transfer window is looming with deadline day on the horizon - but there is still plenty of work to be done.

 Teams at the top of the Premier League are desperate to strengthen ahead of a second-half push for Champions League football and silverware.

 Meanwhile, the lucrative nature of staying in the Premier League is prompting those facing relegation to finalize any last-minute deals which could ultimately be the difference.

 Sportsmail takes a closer look at 12 potential transfers involving Premier League clubs that could yet go through before the deadline of 11pm on Tuesday.

 Keylor Navas

 The PSG goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move to Nottingham Forest.

 Forest's first-choice keeper Dean Henderson suffered an injury in the club's Premier League victory over Leicester earlier this month with his return date still unknown, and Navas would be expected to provide competition to Wayne Hennessey for a spot in the starting XI.

 Navas is a three-time Champions League winner from his time with Real Madrid, and recently captained Costa Rica at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

 Forest, who made 23 signings in the summer, have already brought in Danilo, Gustavo Scarpa and loanee Chris Wood this January.

 Moises Caicedo

 Is Mikel Arteta set to strengthen his squad even further ahead of Arsenal's push for a first Premier League title in 19 years?

 Brighton are standing firm that Moises Caicedo is not for sale but Arsenal need to hit £80m to make them change their minds.

 Having failed with their original offer of £60million on Friday, the Gunners then tabled a new bid worth £65m plus a further £5m in add-ons - which were also rejected.

 It comes despite Caicedo taking to social media to plead with Brighton to let him leave.

 The Seagulls would need to find a replacement and RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara is one option.

 Enzo Fernandez

 Chelsea have reopened talks with Benfica over a deal for World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez, with the clubs now meeting over a £106million offer.

 Chelsea, who confirmed the £26.3m signing of Malo Gusto from Lyon on Sunday, had an offer of around £75m plus bonuses rejected for Fernandez earlier in the month.

 Therefore, the Premier League giants will travel to Portugal on Monday, according to reports, to host a new round of talks with Benfica and offer to pay the 22-year-old's £106m release clause in installations.

 Fernandez has been very public in his attempts to leave the Portuguese club during the January transfer window.

 Cedric Soares

 Arsenal defender Cedric Soares looks set to join Fulham on loan, with the Cottagers eager to make Shane Duffy's loan from Brighton permanent to make room.

 He is an experienced Premier League defender with 158 appearances in the top flight, and Silva made it a priority to bring the 31-year-old to Craven Cottage this window.

 With zero league starts this season for Arsenal, Soares should get the chance for more playing time under his former coach.

 Arsenal are also waiting to hear back on whether they can finalize a deal for Real Valladolid defender Ivan Fresneda.

 Pedro Porro

 It still remains in the balance as to whether Tottenham can successfully pursue their top transfer target Pedro Porro.

 The north London club are still locked in talks with Sporting Lisbon over a £39 million deal.

 Sportsmail initially reported on Saturday morning that there was a hitch over the payment structure from Sporting's perspective - causing the deal to break down - but Spurs' swoop for Porro was back on by the evening after Saturday's Portuguese League Cup final.

 Reneging on previously agreed terms, Sporting then called the deal off once again on Monday morning while Spurs were preparing for the Spanish full-back's medical.

 Antonio Conte may ship out 22-year-old full-back Djed Spence on loan, with the defender struggling for minutes since making his £20million move from Forest.
