It’s January and the transfer window is now open! Football fans in Europe are absolutely buzzing, while the papers are full of possible signings and gossips. Although many believe that January is not the time tp make the biggest deals, this winter seems to be a lot more interesting than the previous ones. Here are some big names that are expected to swich clubs until 2nd February:
1. Ramsey is on his way to Juventus
Aaron Ramsey has been an Arsenal player for more than 10 years now. The Gunners have made an agreement with him about his new contract, and he was going to sign it, but then something happened. Certain people in the board changed their minds, and decided not to keep him in London.
Ramsey is now expected to sign for Juventus, and if Arsenal wants to see some money, they have to sell him in January, before his contract expires. The odds of the Welsh playmaker to sign for any Italian club are 4/5 at BetVictor Sportsbook. A player like him shouldn’t be treated like this.
2. Higuain is a likely target for Sarri
Maurizio Sarri is reportedly not really satisfied with his strikers at Chelsea. Giroud has only managed to score one goal this season, while Morata has only netted five times. The Blues as a team have only scored 38 league goals so far, which is the lowest number of the top 6 teams. The solution could be Gonzalo Higuain, who’s currently playing for AC Milan on loan from Juventus. Bookies expect Chelsea to make a move for him this winter, which makes this event one of the top January transfer specials. The odds of this switch are 1/1 at BetVictor Sportsbook.
3. Alderweireld could solve the defensive problems of Man United
Under Jose Mourinho, the defence of Manchester United looked like a right mess. While things have stabilized a bit under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it’s still sure and certain that they lack some quality and leadership within the back four.
Their easiest and most likely target is Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham, who seems to be reluctant to sign a new deal with Spurs. This means that Daniel Levy must sell his player this year if he wants to see some money out of him. If you also feel like getting some cash out of this transfer, feel free to bet at BetVictor Sportsbook, the odds are 3/1.
4. Fekir could be the next signing in Liverpool
Liverpool spent £163.98m this summer on new players, which has made an instant impact on the team’s performance. They’ve had a great start of the season and they’re definitely a title-challenging squad. However, Jurgen Klopp believes they lack some depth at the front line and he wishes to strengthen his team with a new forward.
Online sportsbook sites in the UK believe that this player is going to be Nabil Fekir. The Frenchman has shown his qualities at Lyon and he’s up for a new challenge in England. The odds of the transfer have slashed to 5/4, so watch this space.
5. Real Madrid will face some competition to get Eriksen
The odds of Eriksen to sign for Real Madrid this January is 6/1 at Betvictor Sportsbook. This is probably the least likely transfer in our list, but probably the most anticipated one. Earlier, it seemed to be sure that the Blancos are going to sign the Danish international, but they’ve got a little competition now in Barcelona and PSG. However, Florentino Perez must find someone to replace Luka Modric, and he can be a convincing man when it comes to negotiations. We believe he’ll have the last laugh.
