January transfer window - LIVE!
It is two weeks until the end of the midseason window we are still yet to see any major moves by any of the Premier League’s biggest clubs, with many of them instead focusing on outgoing. Mesut Ozil’s move to Fenerbahce is expected to be finalised imminently.
Chelsea epitomise that, having spent big on a host of new stars in the summer, and all the speculation today is over Fikayo Tomori’s proposed loan move to AC Milan and a surprise option-to-buy, while Danny Drinkwater is finally headed for the exit door. Ahead of the summer, a bid for Erling Haaland is now a possibility, while long-time target Declan Rice is now of interest to Manchester United - who will also surely have something to say about Haaland’s future.
Arsenal are another club with a keener eye on the exit door than the entrance at the moment, beyond Ozil joining Fenerbahce, youngster Folarin Balogun is said to be in talks with potential suitors with less than six months to run on his contract.
Jurgen Klopp has made clear that it is unlikely that Liverpool will sign a centre-back this month despite the Reds’ injury woes but there are rumours linking the Premier League champions with Udinese’s Rodrigo de Paul as a potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, should the Dutchman leave on a free in the summer.
At Tottenham, Dele Alli is pushing for an exit - expected to be on loan - after falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho. Paris Saint-Germain, and new manager Mauricio Pochettino, is keen. That could pave the way for Christian Eriksen to return, also on loan, just a year after leaving for Inter Milan.
