    As for potential Transfers in, Arsenal have lost out on the race to Sign Germany's Julian Draxler. With their long term target recently agreeing to a big money move to French Giants Paris St Germain.  Arsenal are however in the running to Sign Torino hitman Andrea Belotti, though the quoted 45 million transfer fee is almost certain to scare Arsenal off.

    Players Moving on. Obi Mikel, Oscar.

    Analysis, Rather quiet on the Chelsea incomings with only Bayer Leverkusen's Hakan Calhanoglu apparently close to sealing a 18 million pound move to Stamford Bridge, Calhanoglu is viewed as the ideal replacement for the departed Oscar who recently joined Chinese Giants Shanghai SIPG for a whopping 52 million

    With Oscar Gone another player close to agreeing a move to the vastly improving Chinese revolution is Jon Obi Mikel who is likely to put pen to paper with Tianjin TEDA.for a undisclosed fee at time of writing

    Manager Antonio Conte has stated that he intends to bring some new faces on but he is playing his cards close to his chest 


    Players Linked, Hart, Rodriguez.

    Players moving on  Coutinho 

    Analysis, Manager Jurgen Klopp is keen to strengthen his liverpool squad and Rumours are swirling that Joe Hart will be returning to the premiership to replace under fire goalkeeper Simon Mingolet, Harts Loan club Torino have admitted that they are unlikely to keep hold of him due to his wage demands, Paving the way for Klopp to bid for the England Number one, 

    Jese Rodriguez is another player heavily linked with a move to the Kop. With the forward rumoured to be making a 20 million pound move to Anfield  after seemingly being deemed surplus to requirements at his current club Paris St Germain with manager Unai Emery admitting recently that Jese could be moving on. 

    Phillipe Coutinho has been heavily linked with a move to Spanish Giants Real Madrid. Though Jurgen Klopp is keen to keep hold of his Mercurial Star. Real are set to test Liverpools resolve with a 50 million plus player bid. Whether this comes to fruition in this transfer window remains to be seen and any potential move for the Brazilian may well be made until this Summer. 

    Manchester United,

    Players Linked, Griezmann, Lindelof 

    Players Moving on  Schweinsteiger, Depay, Schneiderlin 

    Analysis. If rumours are to go by it looks to be a busy January at Old Trafford.  Once again French super striker Antoine Griezmann has been linked to a 40 million pound move to the red devils and and a reported 240.000 pounds a week contract,  however these rumours have been denied by Atletico Madrid. But take that for what its worth, 

    One deal almost certain to go through though is the 25 million pound acquisition of Greek Defender Victor Lindelof  though it has been stated that Current club Roma want nearer 30 million for the star.

    Destined to leave United either now or in the summer is Midfield Superstar Bastian Schweinsteiger. The world cup winner has seen his chances limited under Jose Mourinho and has been heavily linked with a move to the MLS or The Chinese super league. As for other departures Rumours continue to link Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay with a double move to Everton. Jose Mourinho continues to remain tight lipped but Everton manager  Ronald Koeman has spoken of his interest in the duo and wants to tie up a 30 million deal for both players before the end of the transfer window.

     Manchester City.

    Players linked, Hernandez , Van Dijk

    Players moving on Toure, Hart

    Analysis . City Manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that the club are keen to add a couple of defenders in the transfer window and these may come in the form of Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk and Atletico Madrid's Theo Hernandez, though Southampton's asking price for Van Dijk is said to be a phenomenal 50 million plus.  Even though money is no object at Man city. They may well still baulk at the asking fee and look elsewhere. Theo Hernandez however is said to be available for a much lower 18 million however and that deal could well go through within the next couple of weeks.

    With Yaya Toure's contract up in 6 months time. The mercurial star has stated he  is happy to see out the remainder of his contract and yet may agree to a new deal with the club . Joe Hart though as previously stated looks set to make a move to Liverpool if Liverpool can agree a deal matching the reported 30 million Manchester city want for him.


    Players Linked. Bernardeschi, Zaha 

    Players Moving on. Alli 

     Analysis,  Tottenham are keen to bolster  their attacking midfield options and are being strongly linked with Italian International Frederico Bernardeschi and Crystal Palace's Winger Wilifred Zaha, . Spurs have been quoted at 40 million for Fiorentina Star Bernardeschi and hope to begin contract talks within the next week.  Any move for Zaha though may have to wait till Summer as he has decided to represent The Ivory Coast at the African nations cup and therefore  could potentially will miss a good portion of the season depending how far they go in the tournament

    Rising star Dele Alli has been linked with a big money move to Real Madrid. Though Spurs are understandably reluctant to sell. It will be hard for the club to refuse a huge bid and the player to turn a move down to the Bernabeu. Though its highly unlikely any deal will be happening in this Transfer window.
