Even now as the 2015 summer transfer window enters its final days and the majority of sagas have been resolved, there are a massive 25 transfer specials priced up on the Betfair Sportsbook.
Six of those feature moves which are odds-on to take place between now and next Tuesday. Two are the John Stones to Chelsea and Saido Berahino to Tottenham switches discussed in greater detail here. These are the other four, ordered from most fancied to least...
Kevin De Bruyne to Manchester City @ 1/5
This is one of those difficult-to-compute scenarios whereby the transfer has seemed inevitable all summer: the player is keen, the Premier League leaders are too and the press were tipped off early on and yet nothing really happened for weeks and weeks and weeks.
Apparently, that is all about to change though. It is being widely reported that a £54 million initial fee has been arranged between Wolfsburg and Man City and the Belgian's agent Patrick de Koster has hinted that everything could be finalised on Thursday.
Jonny Evans to West Brom @ 2/5
Evans is completely out of the first-team frame and, with the makeshift the hastily-assembled defensive configuration of Sergio Romero, Chris Smalling and Daley Blind conceding just once in five games, his chances of winning Louis van Gaal back around look slim.
For much of the window, Everton were rated his most likely destination, but they are on the brink of signing River Plate's Ramiro Funes Mori. As a result, West Brom - who leaked six times in their first two Premier League home fixtures and want rid of Joleon Lescott - have emerged as frontrunners.
Hugo Lloris to Manchester United @ 5/6
Romero and the Man United defence as a whole have performed far better than expected without David de Gea and Phil Jones in a backline featuring two fresh additions and someone playing in a new position, yet the suspicion remains that they will still recruit another goalkeeper.
However, whether they can convince Tottenham to relinquish one of their most valuable squad members with so little time to acquire a replacement is uncertain, and some would argue that Romero has performed reasonably enough to deserve an extended run as first choice. Then there's the fact that neither De Gea nor Victor Valdes have actually left!
Yannick Bolasie to Tottenham @ 10/11
The purchase of Bakary Sako means that there is increased competition on the Crystal Palace flanks, but Bolasie is the most impressive of those options by a fair margin and there is sufficient optimism about the Eagles' prospects this term to believe that the Congolese winger won't try to force a move.
There were rumours earlier in the week that Tottenham and Palace had agreed a £20 million fee for the unpredictable 26-year-old though, explaining why this transfer is assessed by the market to have a greater than 50% chance of being concluded.
