Let us see what is going on in football this month.
Obviously, the biggest and hottest rumors going around the world are all about Lionel Messi, and how he has fallen out with the club he has poured his blood and sweat for. The Argentine forward caused quite a controversy when he announced his wish to move to another club last season, as all eyes were on him trying to decide his future steps. It seems that things did not start all of a sudden, and Messi actually quite a lot of anger and frustration inside, buried deep down due to his love for Barcelona.
Premier League transfer rumours of 2021 have it that the six-time Ballon d’Or winner is planning on joining Manchester City to reunite with his old manager, Pep Guardiola, with whom he managed to win the historical sextuple. His contract with the Blaugranas is set to expire in the summer of 2021, and he is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club that he desires. But the rumors of him joining Manchester City are getting stronger every day.
Barcelona are currently sitting 5th on the La Liga table, with 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5 league games. They simply cannot afford losing him to the Premier League side, who are also currently sitting 5th on the table. If the Argentina international does in fact join the Cityzens, it would definitely be one of the biggest moves of the century, and would shock the whole world as Man City would have brought in one of the greatest footballers in history for free.
The Premier League winter transfer window of 2021 is certainly exciting, as Lionel Messi might finally decide on his future and possible join Manchester City and his old friend, Guardiola. He has already won 4 Champions League trophies, 10 La Liga titles, 6 Copas del Rey, 3 FIFA Club World Cups, 8 Spanish Super Cups, 3 UEFA Supercups and many more individual and collective trophies, awards and honors throughout his career, which is why his move would not be about winning trophies, but more about finally feeling an ease of mind and carrying less pressure on his shoulders.

When Mesut Ozil first joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013, the Gunners were all thrilled to have one of the best midfielders of the time at their club. the Premier League side had paid top money for a top player, and were expecting to receive the best service from the German midfielder. That is why Ozil did not hold back as he helped create one of the best midfield lines in the Premier League, whose passing prowess was the talk of the media.
It is difficult to remember those days, however, as the former Real Madrid man has been under a lot of scrutiny and criticism over the last few seasons. He practically never plays for Arsenal, despite earning a whopping £350,000 every week, for sitting on the bench and watching the games from the sidelines, just like what Gareth Bale used to do at Real Madrid. But even the Welshman had his moments and was given a couple of chances to prove himself, while Ozil is simply left out from the club, not even being named on their shortlist.
The 2014 World Cup winner has still got some of his flair from his prime days, which is why clubs such as Juventus and DC United are said to be interested in signing him this year. While Ozil was initially heavily linked with a move to Juventus, it seems that the Serie A side are simple not able to afford his high wage demands. Now, however, DC United are believed to be interested in signing the 32-year-old as well, which has created some of the hottest Premier League january transfer news of 2021.
Despite his fall out with the club, Mesut Ozil has helped Arsenal win a total of six trophies since his arrival in 2013, with four of them being the FA Cup trophy. It is only a matter of time before we get news about his future in the coming the days. We will provide you with Premier League January 2021 transfer window live update every day.
Next on our list of latest Premier League Transfer News and Rumours, is the Real Madrid wantaway Isco. It is difficult to pinpoint what really went wrong with the Spaniard at Real Madrid, as he used to be quite a crucial part of his team. He helped Los Blancos reach three consecutive Champions League finals and win all three in succession. Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, had even preferred him over Gareth Bale in the 2018 final against Liverpool, even though it was Bale who came to the rescue with two bangers of a goal.
Per Premier League latest transfer news of 2021, clubs such as Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers are believed to be after the signature of the Spaniard, with the Gunners heavily linked with a move for Isco in winter. If they can reach an agreement over Mesut Ozil’s transfer to the rumored clubs, the speculations about Isco moving to Arsenal would strengthen even more, as the English club could have the means and the budget to bring in the Spain international.
While Isco used to be an integral part of Zidane’s plans, it seems that he has lost his touch, as he has only made 10 appearances this season, being a part of the starting XI once every five matches. That surely is an alarming state to be in for the 28-year-old, which is initially why such speculations have surfaced. We will see what happens in the future, as there is currently no hard evidence about a possible move to the Premier League this year.

It is official! Paul Pobga’s agent Mino Raiola has announced that the French midfielder no longer desires to stay with the Red Devils, as he aims to move to a club where he is appreciated. Of course Pogba’s agent could not stress this enough that it is difficult for superstars to move during the winter transfer window, which is why they might wait until the summer. But nothing is set in stone, and everything could change if there is an acceptable offer on the table.
Per Premier League transfer rumours of 2021, Juventus are interested in bringing back their superstar as soon as possible. But they seem to be torn between Isco and Paul Pogba, as they also need to figure out their finances before making a move. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit everyone hard, even football clubs, who have had to deal with wage cuts and lay-offs, while also avoiding extra expenditures, such as signing a new player.
The 2018 World Cup winner’s market value is currently €65 million, and it would take quite a hefty fee to have him put pen on paper, as he still has an active contract with Manchester United until June 2022. We might have to wait a while before hearing anything new about a possible transfer back to Serie A, or even a move to La Liga, as some speculate that there is no love lost between Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Pogba.

Born in the former Yugoslavia, Filip Stevanovic is the latest acquisition of Pep Guardiola’s team. The Serbian left-winger was born on 25 September 2002, which means that he just turned 18 years old in 2020. Stevanovic has already got 60 appearances in senior football under his belt. He has managed to score 12 goals and provide 5 assists in the process, which as certainly caught the attention of some of the elite clubs in Europe.
While some thought that he was set to join Manchester United, it was Manchester City who secured his move to the Etihad Stadium for reportedly €8.5 million. With this move, Stevanovic became the first signing of the Premier League January transfer window 2021. The winger has certainly got talent, but there is quite a long road ahead for the Serbian, and we shall see how things pan out for him in the future.
Frederik Alves Ibsen is the second signing of the 2021 in the Premier League, as the 21-year-old Danish center-back completed his move to West Ham for €1.8 million. He does in fact have two citizenships, as he is both Danish and Brazilian. But he was born in Denmark, which is where he started his professional career with Silkeborg and managed to impress some of the clubs in Europe’s top-five leagues.
The 1.89 m (6 ft 2 in) tall center-back has certainly got potential, but it is too soon to give a verdict on how he will do at West Ham, who are currently sitting right in the middle of the table. David Moyes will surely count on his team’s new signing, as he plans on having more of a rotational tactic for the rest of the season.
Next on our list of Premier League january transfer done deals in 2021 is yet another overpriced youngster, named Amad Diallo. All elite clubs seem to be moving towards adopting a new type of buying strategy, where they sign young players even under the age of 18 in order to invest in their own future. But this global investment has seen a rise in the transfer fee of young up and coming footballers, which has kept clubs with relatively less financial prowess out of the game.
Amad Diallo signed an undisclosed contract with the Red Devils, and the club paid a whopping €21 million for the Ivory Coast winger. Atalanta were the surprise underdogs of last season’s Champions League, and seem to have quite a number of talented youth products in their ranks as well.

Based on the latest Premier League january transfer window news of 2021, Sead Kolasinac has agreed on a loan move to Schalke 04, where he could get regular playing time. Mikel Arteta has seen it fit to let go of the 27-year-old Bosnian left-back, whose market value is currently believed to be a figure around €8 million. He has returned to his former club in Bundesliga, where he spent five years before finally moving to Arsenal in 2017 on a free transfer deal.
Now that he has returned to Schalke, we will see what Arsenal have in mind, as they have clearly paved the way for Kieran Tierney to realize his potential as the club’s first-choice defender.
The Under-21 Premier League winner Matthew Pennington is a part of one of the most recent loan deals in the Premier League. He has moved on loan to Shrewsbury, with a deal which will end in June 2021. The 26-year-old center-back has spent a major portion of his career on loan at clubs such as Hull City, Ipswich Town, Leeds United and Walsall. Now that he has made yet another loan move, Everton supporters might be wondering when, if ever, the Englishman might find his feet at the club.
Dubbed by Rio Ferdinand as a ‘waste of money’, William Saliba signed for Arsenal in 2019 for reportedly €30 million. He moved away from Saint-Etienne and Ligue 1 with this transfer, but it seems that Saliba cannot escape the French league, as he has once again returned with a loan move to Nice. Even though his current market value is believed to be almost half what the Gunners initially paid for his signature, it seems that Mikel Arteta still has no place for him in his roster.
We are here with you with Premier League January 2021 transfer window live update. It is official that Wolverhampton Wanderers’ wing-back, Ruben Vinagre has moved to Famalicao on loan. The 21-year-old is just another one of the mind-blowing 9 Portuguese talents amongst the Wolves’ ranks. Despite being a Sporting CP and Monaco product, Vinagre has played his most for the Premier League side, even though he has spent most of his time on loan at various clubs, including Wolverhampton as well. He initially moved to the Molineux Stadium on loan in the 2017/18 season and only made his move permanent in 2018.
Of course joining the Wolves was not the career breakthrough he the Portuguese footballer might have wanted, as he has spent some time on loan at Olympiacos and has now joined Famalicao, another club in his own country, on loan. He has made a total of 68 appearances for Wolves, scoring 3 goals in the process. We will have to wait and see Vinagre could finally get more first-team action that he used to, or if this move too is going to be similar to his move to Olympiacos.

Next on our list of Premier League January signings of 2021 is Sebastien Haller, who has moved to Ajax from West Ham for reportedly €22.5 million. While Ajax usually depend on their youth products for delivering the results they aim for, they too spend top-money to bring in new and experienced players. The France born Ivory Coast international is currently 26 years old, and has the experience of playing for teams such as Utrecth, AJ Auxerre, Eintracht Frankfurt, West Ham and now Ajax.
Even though he became West Ham’s record signing when he moved to the Premier League club for €50 million, he did not get to make much of an impact, as his underwhelming performance saw his market value drop a significant amount. While his market values is still believed to be around the figure of €30 million, the Hammers have surprisingly sold the striker for a much less price, at more than a €25 million loss.

It might seem that either all of the Matthews in the Premier League have decided to move to other clubs, or that many footballers in England’s top-flight are named Matthew, as Arsenal’s Matt Macey is also one of the Premier League January signings of 2021. Arsenal have been doing their spring cleaning a little early this year, as they have either loaned out some of their players, or they have let go of some of the others for free.
The 26-year-old goalkeeper is an absolute giant of a man with his 2.01 m (6 ft. 7 in.) tall stature. Having graduated from Bristol Rovers’ youth academy, Macey Joined Arsenal’s Under-21 side for less than €200K and finally managed to rise up the ranks and get called up for the club’s senior side in 2015. Although it has not been quite an easy journey for the Englishman, as he has spent most of his time on loan at Luton Town and Plymouth Argyle.
Over the course of five years with the Gunners, Macey managed to make just two appearances, with one being in the EFL Cup and the other one in the Europa League back in the 2017/18 season, which is one of the reasons he decided to run down his contract expiry date and move to the Scottish Premiership side, Hibernian F.C.
Based on the Premier League january transfer window news of 2021, Leeds United’s 20-year-old midfielder, Jordan Stevens, has joined Bradford City on loan.

Stevens is versatile enough to play both as a central midfielder and a winger, which give managers a whole array of choices when it comes to deciding where to deploy the Englishman.
He got to make a total of 15 appearances during his loan spell at Swindon Town, and will be hoping to get even more playing time at Bradford City, who are currently sitting 19th on the English Football League Two table.
West Ham’s Robert Snodgrass too has changed clubs in the Premier League January transfer window 2021. He has played for several clubs during his career, including Scottish clubs such as Livington FC and Stirling Albion, and English teams such as Leeds United, Norwich City, Hull City, West Ham and Aston Villa. There were rumors about West Ham wanting to offload the 33-year-old veteran as David Moyes was planning a layoff with Haller and Snodgrass’ transfers.
The versatile footballer spent three and a half seasons with West Ham and got to make a total of 85 appearances in the process, as he managed to score 11 goals and provide 17 assists. Of course even though he used to get more playtime at West Ham, the past couple of weeks were not to his liking, as he usually sat on the bench or was not even included in the squad.
Now that he has moved to West Bromwich Albion, he will be hoping to get more playtime and spend the minutes on the pitch rather than warming the bench.
