Arsenal needs to make some serious changes if there is going to be any major shift in the club’s creativity.  Sead Kolasinac is on loan to Schalke and it is hoped he’ll be moved out, at least for a while. Presently any of those be considered for incomings will likely be on loan. Isco is one of them. For more long term in the summer, Mikel Arteta.

Aston Villa

They recruited before the season began and are doing well. They’re not looking to make big changes.  Also, some players are soon going to return following being injured, like Wesley and Trézéguet.  Due back also is Ross Barkley, and making his loan from Chelsea into a permanent position could be on the cards. Possible departures could be Henri Lansbury and Neil Taylor.


Graham Potter would like to get back Percy Tau from Anderlecht. But it is likely that the focus will be on removing some fringe players. It could be that Mat Ryan, the Australian goalkeeper will be offloaded if the price is right or perhaps Jayson Molumby might return on loan.  Brighton is not interested in selling their best players, Ben White, Yves Bissouma or Tariq Lamptey.


The owners of Burnley are looking to back Sean Dyche.  According to the manager, “Regarding the window, when we are fully fit we are not a million miles short.” And “Things only happen in windows when you have finances, we don’t know what that is. It is a tricky window anyway, it is a very short window and it is tough to align certain situations and to get them to happen”.


The West Han midfielder, Declan Rice’s move probably won’t happen until summer, the focus of Frank Lampard will likely be on clipping his team.  It could be that Fikayo Tomori will leave on loan and possibly Marcos Alonso.    Also, if a buyer is found for Antonio Rudiger, it could be that Tomori will stay put.

Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson is going to have to be very practical choices when approaching the window.  In the summer, they spent a sizeable sum on Eberechi Eze so Crystal Palace won’t be in a position to make big changes.  There may also be interest in Wilfried Zaha who now revitalized has been linked with a possible move to Serie A leaders Milan.


Everton spent significantly in the last window and made a big loss last year so it is unlikely that Carlo Anvelotti will make big changes. Perhaps he’ll be looking to cover Dominic Calvert-Lewin if Cenk Tonsun leaves.   Everton is planning to make the loan of Robin Olsen from Roma permanent. Also, Sam Khedira has been repeatedly linked.


The team has improved since bringing in defenders at the last window.  Fulham needs to acquire a real striker up front as Asleksander Mitrovic is struggling. Perhaps money can be found by moving Jean Michael Seri, who was not included in Scott Parker’s Premier League team.


The team has managed to get through the injury crisis in tack.  According to Brenden Rogers he does not plan on making any signings but did not completely rule out any changes.  Leicester may possibly be open to loan offers for Islam Slimani and Demarai Gray.

Leeds United

It is pretty clear that Leeds is not interested in buying. Marcelo Bielsa prefers to restock his team in the summer.  The director of Leeds’ football, Victor Orta, is preparing plans for a close-season reshape.  However, a January loan or two is a possibility.


With most injuries occurring in central defence will Jurgen Klopp make changes or not.  He may choose to rely on young players like Nat Philips and Rhys Williams.  No seniors are expected to depart but they could be tempted by a good offer for Divock Origi.

Manchester City

Of course, Pep Guardiola would like to purchase a great goal scorer, such as Erling Braut Haaland owing to the injuries of Sergio Aguero. But this is unlikely.  Present finances and availability will not allow.

Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with his squad.  Changes are unlikely. Jadon Sancho is still the long-term intention and Manchester United are still looking to release players like Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo. However, the deal with Amad Diallo to join was signed with Atlanta this last summer.

Newcastle United

The club has few funds available but Steve Bruce may utilize the loan market. There is still the legal battle with the Premier League to contend with concerning Newcastle’s Saudi Arabian led takeover failure. The loan target would likely be for an extra striker, to support their over-dependence on Callum Wilson.

Sheffield United

No buying likely to take place because of lack of funding available. But loans are likely, especially with John O’Connell’s serious leg injury which has contributed to their poor form.   Preston’s Ben Davis could be the replacement.


Loans are the likely moves that will take place and may become permanent. A move to get Manchester United’s Brandon Williams is on the cards.


Deli Alli is frustrated by the lack of playing time but Giovani Lo Celso was out of action for a month.  Can the club get good money for Alli?  Spurs could get Christian Eriksen to return from Internazionale. Harry Winks is staying but Gedson Fernandes may get loaned out.

West Brom

Sam Allardyce is looking to bring in new talent.   With no great funds feels that maybe because of the situation “players could be cheaper than they have ever been because of this pandemic.”   He’s looking at Everton’s Cenk Tosun as a possibility.

West Ham

Funds are limited but West Ham is not in a panic, even though Michail Antonio has been absent.   Perhaps in the summer they will pursue Prague’s Abdallah Sima.  Frederick Alves, a 21 year old defender is the present newcomer.


Raul Jimenez is still recovering from his injuries and his place needs to be filled. He was replaced temporarily by Fabio Silva. One possibility is Diego Costa who is an experienced Premier League player.
