Transfer talk: Why does no one want to go to Chelsea, and what's next for Barcelona?

Sep 04, 2017, 01:19 PM

The summer transfer window closed last week as a late flurry of business saw clubs rush to buy players in the closing stages. However, Manchester City's protracted pursuit of Alexis Sanchez ended in disappointment after Arsenal failed to secure a deal in time for Thomas Lemar, while Chelsea faced multiple rejections before pushing through deals for Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta. There were plenty of other eye-catching signings completed although Philippe Coutinho leaving Liverpool wasn't one of them. In this week's show, Jon Turner, Steve Luckings and John McAuley discuss the best and the worst of the transfer window, and Andy Mitten joins us on the phone to discuss Barcelona's failure to land Coutinho. We also look ahead to the weekend when the Premier League returns after the international break.
