And further arrivals are now expected before the 5pm cut off today for Premier League signings.

And now he could be joined by another Brazilian in Bernard.

The 25-year-old will join on a free transfer after his contract at Shakhtar Donetsk ran out earlier this summer.

Three goals in three games for Colombia piqued Everton, Manchester United and Lyon's interest and has ultimately allowed Barca to almost treble the €11.8m investment they made in January.

Last week, AC Milan thought they were set to sign him, only for West Ham to enter the running, before Everton then entered the negotiations on Sunday night.

In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 quake off Sumatra triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries. With hospitals and clinics also affected, numerous injured have had to be treated in the open air or in makeshift clinics.

And their raid of the Nou Camp may potentially continue with Andre Gomes wanted too. My understanding, I've spoken to somebody in Spain this morning, is that one is very, very close to being done.

The club are also being linked with a move for Colombian center half Yerry Mina. "It's been a long, long saga has the Yerry Mina saga".

Everton had lined up a move for the Argentine, who is now injured, but United were only willing to sell if they signed a defender themselves.

Usually in cases such as this clubs can approach the Premier League and request more time to complete the deal, if they can provide all the necessary paperwork and prove that the completing the deal is just a matter of dotting i's and crossing t's.

Everton fans were relatively pessimistic about the upcoming campaign before this week, but the potential capture of Gomes and a handful of other players on deadline day would certainly raise the spirits.
