Here is a recap of what they had to say.

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal

The Gunners boss suggested the club could be busy for the past few days by the deadline.

The Spaniard would not comment specifically on rumored targets like the Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar or the possible departure of the midfielder Lucas Torreirabut he said that some decisions need to be made.

“I think it’s a defining moment because in the end it defines the people, the players, the balance and the quality that you will have for the rest of the season,” said Arteta.

“We’ll try to make the best decisions possible and in the end whatever we have, we’ll be fully confident and ready to have a good season.”

Dean Smith, Aston Villa

Villa sign midfielder Ross Barkley was loaned by Chelsea this week and manager Smith says he’s “happy” with his team.

Barkley marks Villa’s fifth major contract this summer.

“We set a goal of what we wanted and what positions we were in, and we’re comfortable with that,” said Smith.

“We have to keep our finger on the pulse in case someone comes in for our boys.”

Sean Dyche, Burnley

The Clarets turned down a £ 30 million offer from Leicester City for England defenders James Tarkowski last week and Dyche expects the player to stay now.

“He (Tarkowski) is an important player for us,” said Dyche. “He is a player who is developing and unless the club’s forces tell me otherwise, he will be here.”

“He’s certainly not part of this group that we think will go.”

On possible arrivals, Dyche said there was “nothing imminent”.

Frank Lampard, Chelsea

Lampard added more than £ 200million to his squad this summer and has been asked if Bayern Munich has a goal Callum Hudson-Odoi was able to leave after the winger played 83 minutes on Saturday 4-0 win over Brighton.

“There is no definitive answer. We will have the answer by Monday,” he said.

“They (Bayern) may have expressed their interest, which is one thing, but in terms of the squad, whatever happens until Monday will be things that are good for us as a club, firstly because Callum is our player and what Callum is will be considered.

“It has to be right for everyone. Right now I want Callum to be part of my squad, especially with what he offered against West Brom today and in the second half. There I am.”

Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace

“I was told and Wilf made it clear that we weren’t interested in late offers,” Hodgson said of the odds ahead Wilfried Zaha will leave.

“If it did happen, it would have to happen in a certain time frame. I hope it won’t happen now and I want to keep working with him.”

On the rumors that Palace are interested in Brentford wingers Said BenrahmaHodgson added, “The bottom line is there is no real dialogue between us and Brentford and we certainly haven’t talked about buying a player for that position, but who knows?”

Meanwhile, defense attorney Nathaniel Clyne has trained with the club and may return to Selhurst Park this summer after leaving Liverpool.

Carlo Ancelotti, Everton

Winger Yannick Bolasie, Those who haven’t played for the club since May 2018 after a series of loan games are expected to leave, but Ancelotti wouldn’t be convinced if Norwich City is a defender Ben Godfrey will join the club.

Italy striker Moise Kean has a future at Goodison Park and Ancelotti added: “The club made a big investment with him (Kean) last season. He’s young, he’s not been well this week so he won’t be in the squad tomorrow but only for this reason. “

Scott Parker, Fulham

Fulham have conceded ten goals in their first three Premier League games, and Parker is hoping for new signings in defense.

“I would like to think with the central defenders that we will have some additions in the building by Monday to help us and the squad,” he said.

“We’re in the market right now, we’ve been in the market for a while. There are still three days to go, it’s obviously a breeze, but we hope we can do some things in the days to come.”

“If that’s not the case, then it is not. If not, we’ll restart and see where we are when everything is closed.”

Brendan Rodgers, City of Leicester

Leicester City have signed 19-year-old Saint-Etienne defender Wesley Fofana on a five-year contract.

This summer marks the club’s third signing following the arrival of Atalanta’s right-back Timothy Castagne and Roma winger Cengiz Under, on loan from Roma.

“We said at the top of the window we wanted quality,” Rodgers said. “When we draw towards the end, these are the three players we signed.

“It took a lot of hard work and perseverance to get these players on board. Quality was important, not necessarily the numbers. The signings will definitely improve it.”

Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool

When asked how many players are likely to leave, Klopp replied: “No number. Transfer windows from the media or supporters’ point of view are about who you bring in, but the squad is the most important thing in a football club.”

“It makes the guys feel like they are needed and in the right place. I can easily work with 24 or 25 players over a long season, no problem, but if a player is not feeling well we have to talk.

“That’s what’s going on right now. We have to find solutions to the players’ personal situations … sometimes a loan, sometimes they buy it.”

Pep Guardiola, Manchester City

Manchester City signed the Portuguese defender Ruben Dias from Benfica for about £ 65m earlier this week and £ 40m for Dutch center-back Nathan Ake earlier in the window.

But the future of the Spanish center-back Eric Garcia is still not clear as the 19-year-old is linked to a move to Barcelona and refuses to sign a contract extension.

“I know he wants to leave and Barcelona want him, but there is currently no deal between the clubs. I don’t know how it will turn out,” said Guardiola.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United

Manchester United was linked with Borussia Dortmund Jadon Sancho Barcelona forward for months Ousmane Dembele and they are in talks for Porto left-back Alex Such.

“The transfer window is still open,” he said. “The club has worked and they know my point of view. My focus is on Sunday (against Tottenham in the Premier League).”

Steve Bruce, Newcastle

Bruce downplayed expectations of late transfer activity at St. James’ Park.

“I’m not expecting anyone unless there is something that changes (and that would be) that is on loan,” said Bruce.

“We still have one or two that we unfortunately have to develop, which is as difficult for the financial world as it is.”

Jose Mourinho, Tottenham

After the signing striker Carlos Vinicius Benfica’s Mourinho said some players could leave the club now.

“The transfer window is two-way and we could let a few players go,” said the Portuguese.

“Of course we won’t keep every player in the squad above the normal number.”

“I like to work normally with a 22-player squad and goalkeepers and we won’t be far from that number.”

Slaven Bilic, West Brom

Bilic confirmed Huddersfields Karlan Grant and Leicester Islam Slimani are on the club’s radar to step up their attack.

“The rumors are true, there are two on our list. Very good players, of course,” said the Croatian. “We’re trying to find a player, or at least one, or a pair, but basically one – one will happen and two would be good.”
