With the transfer window now open and in full swing, activity is frenetic throughout world football.

Here, we take a look at some of the latest done deals over the past 24 hours.

MATTHIAS GINTER

Borussia Dortmund to Borussia M’gladbach €17m (Dh70.8m)

The defender stood out by helping Germany win the Confederations Cup, but believes his best chance of featuring in the 2018 World Cup is guaranteed first-team football at Monchengladbach. At 23 years old, he represents something of a steal.

LUIZ GUSTAVO

Wolfsburg to Marseille €8m (Dh33.3m)

After a decade in Germany, the tough-tackling midfielder heads west to Marseille. He joins a team who finished fifth in Ligue 1, though his new employers will hope he cuts down on his red cards – he picked up his eighth last season to match the Bundesliga record.

ADAM OUNAS

Bordeaux to Napoli €10m (Dh41.7m)

Ounas was linked to Manchester United in April but instead the Algerian winger will move to Serie A. The 20-year-old will be an able understudy to Jose Callejon, as he is equally adept at playing on the right as he is on the left. A small price to pay for huge potential.

TOM INCE

Derby to Huddersfield £11m (Dh52.2m)

Ince, son of former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul, has been handed a second shot at the Premier League by new boys Huddersfield. Still only 25, the forward was a force with Derby in the Championship but failed with Hull in the EPL in 2014/15.

FLORIAN LEJEUNE

Eibar to Newcastle £8.7m (Dh41.3m)

The 26-year-old spent one season in La Liga with Eibar and helped them to an impressive 10th place. “He has progressed a lot as a player in the last few years and he will give us something different at the back,” said Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez.

Former Real Madrid defender Pepe has arrived in Istanbul ahead of a move to Besiktas.

The Turkish Super Lig club confirmed the free agent Portugal international had arrived in the city with a photo and a statement on their official website.

On Tuesday evening Besiktas posted images on Twitter of the 34-year-old in a Besiktas shirt and signing papers, though a statement did not confirm the deal was yet official.

It read: “Portuguese international stopper Kepler Laveran Lima Ferreira (Pepe) arrived in Istanbul for transfer negotiations with Besiktas. He was greeted at the Istanbul Ataturk Airport by a large and vocal Besiktas crowd.”

Pepe joined Real Madrid in 2007, going on to win the Champions League three times as well as three LaLiga titles and the Copa del Rey twice before his contract ran out at the end of last season.

Alexandre Lacazette is undergoing a medical at Arsenal and is expected to complete his club-record move from Lyon on Wednesday.

Press Association Sport understands the Gunners are closing in on the signing of the 26-year-old France striker for a reported fee of £44million.

Lacazette has scored more than 20 goals in Ligue 1 for the last three seasons.

The fee would surpass the £42.4m paid to Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.

However, the imminent arrival of Lacazette provokes questions over the future of Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud – with Ozil’s situation also uncertain.

Sanchez, whose contract expires in June 2018, has been linked with Manchester City, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.

Speaking at the Confederations Cup, the Chile forward said he knew what his future had in store, but declined to reveal what it entailed.

France striker Giroud, meanwhile, has been linked with Everton, among other clubs.
