Though the season is young, sides’ flaws have likely already been exposed and player shaped holes litter their team sheet - whether it be a lack of a goal-scoring striker or a mature defender.

Luckily for them, there is still time to act, with the transfer window longer than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Major deals could still be achieved in the final days of the window with Leeds United, Man City and Arsenal among the clubs still chasing crucial components of their squad for the remainder of the season.
