On the 30th June 2013 what were the stories that dominated the football landscape? Including Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Let's cast our eyes back to this exact day, the 30th June 2014, but a year earlier.

What were the main tales from that day? What big events were happening in Premier League football?

Here are some of the big scoops from the 30th June 2013…

Dynamic signing

A year ago today and Tottenham Hotspur had reportedly agreed deals to sign two of Croatia's hottest talents. It came after Dinamo Zagreb president Mirko Barisic confirmed the deal was agreed.

Tin Jedvaj and Alen Halilovic were both set to arrive when they turned 18. But of course neither person actually made the move to White Hart Lane. Instead Jedvaj joined Roma, and has since moved again to Bayer Leverkusen.

Halilovic on the other hand joins Barcelona tomorrow after agreeing a move to arrive at the club in January.

Trying for Tonny

Arsenal were being heavily linked with a move for Paraguayan forward Antonio Sanabria. The Barcelona youngster was after a move to have a better chance at first-team football. The then 17-year-old was being linked with following the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Hector Bellerin, Jon Toral and many others who swapped Barca for The Gunners.

However 'Tonny' has since signed for AS Roma and been co-owned out to fellow Serie A side Sassuolo for a €4.5 million fee.

Room for Bruma

Chelsea were attempting to sign the 'next Cristiano Ronaldo' from Sporting Lisbon.

The flying winger Bruma emerged as a transfer target, and considering his brother was a former Chelsea player and current Fulham man, it seemed they had a good chance if snapping him up.

Unfortunately however Bruma signed for Galatasaray for a fee of €10 million. But he has struggled with knee problems since his move and he is expected to move on loan to Gaziantepspor on loan next season.
