    Here we go then. Potentially Barcelona's most important transfer deadline day in recent memory.

    After the curtain is brought down on Monday night, the Catalans will be unable to sign anyone else until January 2016.

    The gravitas of that situation cannot be downplayed.

    If there are still deals to be done at the death, then Barca need to be prepared to be in at the sharp end of negotiations.

    Let's take a look at who is being linked and keep checking back throughout the day as this page will be constantly updated with any news.

     

Mateo Kovacic

    Barcelona have failed with a late bid to secure Inter Milan's exciting Mateo Kovacic according to reliable Sky Sports Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, via his personal website (Italian), h/t Jamie Kemp of Inside Spanish Football.

    With time running out in the window it would appear that all of Barca's business has now definitively been done until January  2016.

Juan Cuadrado

    The will-he-won't-he saga of Juan Cuadrado signing for Barcelona is finally over.

    According to Football Espana, the Colombian international is staying with La Viola. Fiorentina's owner Andrea Della Valle told reporters:

    I can say with certainty Cuadrado is staying.

    It's a big present for the city. I hope it's the strongest Viola of the Della Valle era.

Mats Hummels

    The future of Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels has been the on-off saga that has lasted the entire transfer window.

    According to Mark Bollons of Give Me Sport, the bookies still have Barca down as interested in the German international but they make Manchester United favourites to land the player with an 11th hour £25 million bid.

    After already acquiring two central defenders, it's unlikely the Catalans will bid for another, but a 17 month ban may see some very late additions to Luis Enrique's squad, including one or two surprises.

Victor Valdes

    Ex-Barca number one, and now free agent, Victor Valdes could be on his way to Liverpool on this transfer deadline day.

    According to ESPN, sources have indicated that Valdes could be brought in to provide competition for Simon Mignolet at Anfield.

    It will be November at the earliest before Valdes can play competitively again following his cruciate injury, however being able to acquire such quality for free is a surely a no brainer for Brendan Rodgers.

Juan Cuadrado

    Barca will have to perform a huge u-turn if they intend to sign Fiorentina's Juan Cuadrado.

    According to Mundo Deportivo via Lewis Doe of Here Is The City, the Catalans have cooled their interest in a player they have been tracking all summer:

    The club has officially communicated to Juan Cuadrado they’re not interested in signing him.

    It has done so via telephone through representative Alessandro Lucci.

    Of course, nothing should ever be ruled out in football, but it would take a vast change in current circumstances for the deal to happen.

Marco Asensio

    Marco Asensio could be a last-minute capture for the Catalans if they are prepared to raise an initial bid for the player.

    According to Diaria de Mallorca (Spanish) via RealMallorca.co.uk, the Islanders have rebuffed an initial bid from Barca of €1.5 million but may be willing to negotiate an offer of close to €4.5 million is forthcoming.

    Although Barca B may well be the players' first port of call, he will have 17 months to break into the first team, given the FIFA transfer embargo.
