The summer transfer window shuts at 11pm on Thursday and Sky Sports will guide you through the deals and the drama right up to the deadline and beyond.
The futures of Philippe Coutinho and Diego Costa remain up in the air, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez could swap one Premier League club for another and Kylian Mbappe is closing in on a big-money move to Paris Saint-Germain.
With the 2017/18 campaign up and running, who'll make a last-ditch bid to strengthen their squad? Will your club steal a march on a rival, bring in an old head or take a punt on an unknown? And will that precious paperwork be filed on time?

Here's all you need to know about this summer's last chance to do business and how to follow - wherever you are - with Sky Sports...
When's the deadline?
The window shuts in England and Scotland at 11pm on Thursday, August 31.
The same goes for France and Italy, but the deadline is 5pm in Germany and clubs in Spain will have an extra day to do business; the window there closes at midnight on September 1 - meaning Barcelona's pursuit of Coutinho could drag on even further.
Clubs in China can do business up until September 14.
Don't forget the deal sheet. This crucially allows a club to confirm that a deal has been reached and affords additional time to submit the remaining documentation. The sheet cannot be used until two hours before the deadline and needs to arrive fully completed before the transfer window closes; clubs then have an additional two hours after the window closes to submit full paperwork.
Once the window closes, only the temporary transfer of a goalkeeper in "exceptional circumstances" is permitted.
Record-breaking transfer window?
The transfer record was shattered at the start of August when PSG signed Neymar for the eye-watering sum of £200m - a fee that Jose Mourinho claimed represented value for money.
Early business meant that Premier League clubs had already forked out £309m by the time the summer window officially opened on July 1 and one August 3 deal - Kelechi Iheanacho to Leicester from Manchester City - took top-flight spending in England past the £1bn mark.
