Around Europe, clubs still have around 10 days to complete any new deals before the transfer window shuts.

With transfers coming thick and fast, it can be difficult to keep up with them all.

Here's five you may have missed:

Florentino Luis

Benfica to Monaco

Fee: Loan

The young Portuguese defensive midfielder has long been on the radar of Milan, who were believed to be interested in signing him before they eventually opted for Sandro Tonali.

Since things went quiet on the Milan front, Monaco have been able to swoop in and sign Luis on a season-long loan deal. At the moment, there is no indication that the Ligue 1 side have the option to buy the 21-year-old next summer.

Luis Henrique

Tres Passos/Botafogo to Marseille

Fee: €12m

This transfer became complicated by the fact that 60% of Henrique was owned by Tres Passos and 40% by Botafogo, meaning that Marseille had to negotiate with both clubs. In the end, their overall outlay was around €12m to land the talented 18-year-old Brazilian. He is normally deployed on the left wing but can play up top, too. He has signed a five-year deal with OM.

Diego Godin

Inter to Cagliari

Fee: Free

After just one season at Inter, Diego Godin has left the Nerazzurri to sign for Cagliari on a free transfer. The Uruguayan made 23 appearances in Serie A last season and helped solidify the backline with the best defensive record in the league. The former Atletico Madrid legend was a high earner at San Siro, though, and had been allowed to leave to allegedly free up funds for Antonio Conte. Even at 34-years-old, he has been handed a three-year deal by Cagliari.

Santiago Arias

Atletico to Leverkusen

Fee: Loan

Santiago Arias has left Atletico Madrid to join Leverkusen on loan with the obligation to buy next summer for around €12m. The Colombian defender signed for Los Colchoneros two years ago but has been unable to make the right-back position his own. In the 2019/20 campaign he only made 11 starts in La Liga, but has given the opportunity to reboot his career in the Bundesliga.

Sam Lammers

PSV to Atalanta

Fee: €10m.

Despite PSV's attempted to put together a contract extension for Sam Lammers, the 23-year-old opted to move to Atalanta to join Gian Piero Gasperini's exciting side. In the league last season he only made seven appearances for PSV, scoring two goals, but in the season prior he banged in 16 goals in 31 appearances on loan at Heerenveen.
