Latest Premier League Transfer News and Rumours

Despite the pandemic, or maybe especially because of it, many might find the time to bet on who is going to join which team and for how much money. Fans are eagerly waiting to see how everything finally pans out and what deals are ultimately signed until the end of the transfer window. Here are the latest Premier League january transfer news of 2021.

Premier League transfer rumours of 2021

Before delving into the

Premier League latest transfer news of 2021

, we have provided a number of intriguing rumors and speculations about where some of the world-class players might end up this year, with words going around about how Lionel Messi might want to join Manchester City, or how

Mohamed Salah

has not ruled out a move to either

Barcelona

or Real Madrid. Let us see what is going on in football this month.

Lionel Messi

  • Transfer: Barcelona-Manchester City

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.

Mesut Ozil

  • Transfer: Arsenal-TBD

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.

Isco

  • Transfer: Real Madrid-Arsenal, Wolves

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.

Paul Pogba

  • Transfer: Manchester United-TBD

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.

Premier League January transfer done deals in 2021

Now that we have discussed about some of the hottest rumors around in Europe, let us have a look at the done deals in the winter transfer window. Of course there is still time left for clubs to make their move and purchase new players, which is why we will be updating you on every new transfer that goes through in the transfer window for any of the 20 teams in the Premier League. Follow us below for

Premier League January 2021 transfer window live update

.

Filip Stevanovic

  • Transfer: Partizan Beograd-Manchester City

  • Transfer fee: €8.5M

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

  • Transfer: Silkeborg-West Ham

  • Transfer fee: €1.8M

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.

Amad Diallo

  • Transfer: Atalanta-Manchester United

  • Transfer fee: €21M

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.

Sead Kolasinac

  • Transfer: Arsenal-Shcalke 04

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

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.

Matthew Pennington

  • Transfer: Everton-Shrewsbury

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

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.

William Saliba

  • Transfer: Arsenal-OGC Nice

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

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.

Ruben Vinagre

  • Transfer: Wolves-Famalicao

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

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.

Sebastien Haller

  • Transfer: West Ham-Ajax

  • Transfer fee: €22.5M

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.

Jayson Molumby

  • Transfer: brighton-Preston

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Based on the Premier League january transfer news of 2021, England’s top-flight has seen yet another loan move, as Brighton & Hove Albion’s Jason Molumby has moved to Preston North End on loan until May 2021. Being a Brighton youth academy product, Molumby spent a season on loan at Millwall, and is now aiming to improve his game even further by joining

Preston

. The 21-year-old Ireland international said that it was in fact easy to decide on his future and join the Lilywhites on loan.

Matty James

  • Transfer: Leicester City-Coventry City

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Based on the Premier League latest transfer news of 2021, Matthew “Matty” James has moved to Coventry City on loan. The English midfielder is a product of Manchester United’s youth academy and has played for clubs such as Preston North End, Barnsley, Leicester City and now

Coventry City

. He moved to

Leicester City

in 2012 for a little over €1 million and has spent a season and a half on loan since his initial move to the King Power Stadium.

The 29-year-old has made a total of 117 appearances for the Foxes, scoring 5 goals and providing 13 assists in the process. However, he has spent a significant amount of time on the sidelines either due to months-long injuries, which even forced the footballer to go under surgery. He will be hoping to turn things around at Coventry City, get back on his feet and find his form once again.

Matt Macey

  • Transfer: Arsenal-Hibernian

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

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

.

Jordan Stevens

  • Transfer: Leeds United-Bradford City

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

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. He spent half a season on loan at Swindon Town before coming back to his home club just to move out on another loan a day after his arrival. 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.

Robert Snodgrass

  • Transfer: West Ham-West Bromwich Albion

  • Transfer fee: Undisclosed/≈€4M

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.

Andy Lonergan

  • Transfer: Stoke City-West Bromwich

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

It seems that West Brom are on a shopping spree, as they have signed the veteran goalkeeper, Andy Lonerga, from Stoke City on a free transfer. Despite not playing a single game in the Premier League for Liverpool, the Englishman was handed a Premier League winner’s medal by Jurgen Klopp, who deemed his efforts integral and valuable. The 37-year-old has played for quite a number of teams throughout his career, including, but not limited to, Preston North End, Blackpool, Leeds United,

Bolton Wanderers

, Fulham, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool and Stoke City.

Rolando Aarons

  • Transfer: Newcastle United-Huddersfield Town

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

Fan favorite Charlie Austin has returned to

Queens Park Rangers

on loan, after spending three seasons with Southampton and one and a half seasons with West Bromwich Albion. The 31-year-old striker managed to help West Bromwich qualify for the Premier League by scoring 10 goals and providing 2 assists in 34 appearances last season. This season, however, The Baggies are looking for better replacements as they are now playing in the top-flight of the English football, which is why they had to send the Englishman on loan back to his former club, who are currently struggling in the Chamionship.

George Broadbent

  • Transfer: Sheffield United-Beerschot AC

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Next on the list of Premier League january signings of 2021 is George Broadbent, who has moved from Sheffield United to

Beerschot AC

on loan. The 20-year-old central midfielder was only just called up to The Blades’ first senior squad before he had to leave for the Belgian club, Beerschot. Certainly Sheffield United will be monitoring his progress throughout the season to see how much he improves his game.

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

According to the latest Premier League Transfer News and Rumours, Fulham’s 29-year-old Anthony Knockaert has extended his loan spell at Championship side Nottingham Forest until May 2021. The French winger is versatile enough to play on either side of the pitch and even in the middle as a second striker, which will surely give Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton a whole array of deployment choices when it comes to Knockaert. As a Guingamp academy graduate, Knockaert has played for clubs such as Leicester City, Standard Liege, with whom he went on to win the Belgian League, Brighton and

Fulham

.

The Algerian goal scorer’s market value is believed to be around €5 million, which shows how much Olympique Lyonnais have saved by signing him for free.

He will be hoping to get back on his feet and impress at his new club, until his one-year contract comes to an end. Of course if he does in fact manage to impress at Lyon, he will certainly be handed a contract extension. But until then, nothing is written in stone.

Swansea are currently second in the race for the top spot in the Championship and a promotion to the next season of the Premier League. The €6-million-rated Hourihane will be spending the remainder of the season at Swansea until 31 May 2021.

  • Transfer fee: €3.5M/On loan

The former Congo U21 center forward and current France U21 international, Jean-Philippe Mateta has joined Crystal Palace on loan from Mainz until 30 June 2022. The 23-year-old goal-scorer is already gaining prominence in football, scoring goals and providing an assist in 15 appearances this season, which has proved to be effective on his market value, as it currently stands at €15 million. The French footballer initially moved to Olympique Lyon from LB Chateauroux for €4 million in 2016, and later joined

FSV Mainz 05

for reportedly €8 million in 2018.

Of course this loan move is more permanent than other normal types of loan moves, as Crystal Palace have an obligation to buy the center-forward for €14 million plus up to €3 million in add-ons after his first Premier League appearance.

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Real Sociedad center-forward,

Willian Jose

, is the latest of the footballers to join a Premier League club. Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed the Brazilian on loan until the end of the current season, which will certainly help boost the strength of their struggling squad, as they have been going through a difficult timem standing 14 on the league table as of 24 January 2021.

The 29-year-old has spent his career on loan at quite a number of clubs, including Santos FC, Gremio, Real Zaragoza, Real Madrid Castilla and Real Zaragoza. He did not get to play for a club with whom he had signed a permanent contract until 31 July 2016, when he joined

Real Sociedad

from Maldonado for €6 million.

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Birmingham City

have made their first signing of the 2021 winter transfer window by acquiring the services of Rekeem Harper on loan from West Bromwich Albion.

The 20-year-old central midfielder will be hoping to get more playtime at Birmingham to hone his skills and return to his club a better and more reliable footballer.

Mesut Ozil

  • Transfer: Arsenal-Fenerbahce

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

It has finally happened. The bird is out of the cage.

Mesut Ozil

has finally left Arsenal for good. While many regard the German midfielder as one of the club’s legends and consider him to be on par with the greatest footballers in Arsenal history, the way that the player was ultimately treated by the club was heavily criticized by supporters and pundits worldwide. Whatever the case was, Ozil left Arsenal having won six major trophies overall, including four FA Cups and two Community Shields.

While it was rumored that the 32-year-old might be joining Juventus or even DC United, it was

Fenerbahce

in the end, who managed to sign one of the best midfielders in football history on a free transfer. Ozil had previously stated that if he was ever to play in Turkey, he would without a doubt join Fenerbahce, as it was his childhood favorite club. It is a ‘dream come true’ for the German footballer, as he has already started training with his new teammates in Turkey.

We will have to wait and see how the €5-million-rated World Cup winner is going to fare at his new club, and if he can once again get back to his former glory and show Arsenal what they are going to miss the most. Ozil has signed a three-year contract with Fenerbahce until 30 June, 2024, and will certainly be eager to be implemented into the squad and get on the pitch wearing his new jersey.

John Kitolano

Now, after almost three years since he first joined Wolves, and without even making a single appearance for the club’s senior squad, the 21-year-old Norwegian left-back has left for his former club, joining

Odds BK

on a permanent deal until 2023.

Daniel Arzani

  • Transfer: Manchester City-AGF Aarhus

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

22-year-old Iranian-Australian winger Daniel Arzani has joined Danish side Aarhus on loan for the remainder of the season. While being versatile enough to play in a multitude of roles and being able to deliver in each position, Arzani’s move to Manchester City in 2018 only made him an outcast at the club instead of boosting his career.

With Pep Guardiola focusing on winning the Premier League and other domestic and international trophies, there certainly isn’t any place for a talented yet underperforming player in his plans, which is why he was once again sent on loan so that maybe he can finally find his form. Arzani has spent the last three years on loan, with a two-year loan spell at Celtic and a one-year stint at

FC Utrecht

, and will now be staying with Aarhus on a short-term loan deal.

Morgan Sanson

  • Transfer: Marseille-Aston Villa

  • Transfer fee: €15M

Morgan Sanson

had reportedly attract quite a significant amount of attention from Premier League clubs thanks to his impressive form in Ligue 1 this season. There were speculations about him joining a number of clubs in England such as Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham, but it was Aston Villa who managed to get their hands on their new player by being the first club to make an official approach.

While initially Villa were slammed by Marseille manager Andre Villas-Boas because of how low their offer for the French central midfielder was, they were finally able to sign the 26-year-old on a four-year deal for €15 million. Sanson has never played football for a club outside of France, and Aston Villa will finally be the club where he gets to experience playing football in a foreign club.

The rest of the 2020/21 season will surely be an exciting one, as Dean Smith’s boys have the chance to fight for a place in the Europa League, as they are currently sitting 8th on the league table with a couple of games in hand.

Ante Palaversa

  • Transfer: Manchester City-Kortrijk

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Manchester City’s 20-year-old defensive midfielder Ante Palaversa is another one of the club’s winter departures as he has joined Belgian side KV Kortrijk on a long-term loan until the summer of 2022. Palaversa initially started his career in Croatia at Hajduk Split and gained enough prominence to secure a move to Manchester City for €7 million in 2019.

He has since spent his time on loan at his former club and a couple of other clubs including KV Oostende and Getafe. He has already made two appearances for his new club, but will be hoping to one day become a regular starter for the Cityzens.

Stefan Johansen

  • Transfer: Fulham-QPR

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Queens Park Rangers have secured a deal for the loan move of 30-year-old Norway international Stefan Johansen, who will be joining the

Championship

side from Fulham until the end of the season. While Johansen was an integral part of Fulham’s squad in the 2019/20 season, he has not been able to repeat the same stats this term, as the versatile midfielder only managed to make a couple of appearances for Fulham before his loan move to QPR.

Mark Warburton and his team believe that Johansen will be able to share his wisdom and experience, adding with the younger QPR players as he has had more than 300 professional appearances in his career. The Norwegian midfielder had the following to say about joining his new club: “Obviously I am very excited…” “QPR is a traditional club. English football is huge back home in Norway, and we have always head about QPR as a big club.”

Martin Odegaard

  • Transfer: Real Madrid-Arsenal

  • Transfer fee: €1.5M/On loan

Real Madrid recently announced that 22-year-old Martin Odegaard has joined Premier League side Arsenal for the remainder of the season. With his market value topping the €30 million mark and going over €40 million, it is no surprise that Mikel Arteta has used the Norwegian midfielder’s frustration at Real Madrid to his advantage and has signed him on loan by paying half a million less than €2 million.

Odegaard used to be the new hotshot at Real Madrid, with many comparing him to Lionel Messi and other great footballers in history, as he wowed everyone with his technique and dribbling in the midfield. The Norwegian former wonderkid spent a season-long loan at

Real Sociedad

and gained a move back to Real Madrid with his outstanding overall performance. But ever since his return to the club, he might have failed to impress Zidane as he seemed to have no plans for implementing the youngster into his aging squad.

Odegaard’s frustration only grew as he got less and less playtime at Real Madrid, which is why he handed in his loan transfer request so that he can keep his fine form and get more time on pitch. He did get to make his debut for Arsenal in the 0-0 draw against Manchester United, as he came on as an 83rd-minute substitute.

Max Meyer

  • Transfer: Crystal Palace-Koln

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

Crystal Palace attacking midfielder Max Meyer has moved on from the club and has joined Bundesliga side Koln on a free transfer for the remainder of the season.

He first moved to Schalke 04’s youth side from Duisburg on a free transfer, and later joined Crystal Palace after his contract expired with the German club. Now he has joined

FC Koln

on a short-term deal which will expire at the end of the current season.

Everton paid more than €28 million to acquire his services from Crystal Palace back in 2016, but have since regretted their decision as the winger has spent his time on loan at several clubs such as Aston Villa, Anderlecht and Sporting CP since 2018. The loan spells have only deteriorated Bolasie’s form as the once €19-million-rated footballer is now worth roughly €5 million.

Said Benrahma

  • Transfer: Brentford-West Ham

  • Transfer fee: €23M

West Ham supporters are surely excited for the rest of the season as their team are currently in a Europa League spot and have just spent around €23 million to acquire the services of 25-year-old  winger Said Benrahma from Brentford. The Algeria international’s market value soared through the sky as it almost doubled with his recent permanent transfer to West Ham. David Moyes is surely happy with his new signing, who recently inspired an emphatic win over Doncaster in FA Cup.

Benrahma had been at the club on loan since October 2020, but has now made his move permanent and surely looks forward to get more time on the pitch as the Hammers push on for several achievements this season.

Henri Lansbury

  • Transfer: Aston Villa-Bristol City

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

While there were talks about Aston Villa central midfielder Henri Lansbury joining Watford after the expiration of contract, it has now been confirmed that the Englishman has opted to join Bristol City over Watford, who were truly keen on signing the 30-year-old. Lansbury comes in to fill in the void that Chris Brunt left with his departure earlier in January, explaining that the “team spirit” is the reason he chose to join the Robins instead of moving to Watford or Stoke City.

Mbaye Diagne

  • Transfer: Galatasaray-West Bromwich

  • Transfer fee: €1.5M/On loan

West Bromwich Albion have managed a secure a loan move for Galatasaray center-forward Mbaye Diagne, who is no stranger to loan spells at different clubs. Diagne joined Galatasaray from Kasimpasa for almost €15 million in 2019 but failed to make an impact at the Turkish club, as he went on to spend a season on loan at Club Brugge in 2019.  

Diagne’s form has improved since he got back from his loan spell, as he managed to score 9 goals in 15 appearances in the Turkish Super Lig, before moving on loan to West Bromwich, where he has already managed to provide an assist in his debut in the 2-2 draw against Fulham.

Jesse Lingard

  • Transfer: Manchester United-West Ham

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

It seems that Jesse Lingard has found himself a new dance floor, as the 28-year-old winger has joined West Ham on loan until the end of the season. As a Manchester United youth academy graduate, Lingard has made over 200 appearances for the Red Devils, but has not been a part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans this season, as he only got to make a total of three appearances before finally moving to West Ham.

It is reported that Glasgow

Rangers

were also linked to the versatile forward, but it was David Moyes’ team who managed to land the deal and sign the Englishman for the remainder of the season.

Tahith Chong

He then went on to make a couple more appearances the next season, but was later loaned out to

Werder Bremen

in August 2020 to further hone his skills as the Red Devils fought to climb up the league ladder. The 21-year-old Dutch winger has now joined the Belgian side after his short-term loan at the Bundesliga club ended this month.

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Bordeaux

from fulham and will be spending the remainder of the season at the French club.

Interestingly, Bayer Leverkusen have been able to sign the Englishman on quite a good deal, as his transfer market value is estimated to be around €12 million, but they have acquired his services for €2 million. Gray signed a one and a half-year contract with the German club and will be staying there for at least until June 2022.

While the Premier League side paid quite a hefty fee for his arrival, Cutrone has only made a total of 28 appearances, scoring 3 goals and providing 4 assists.

With a relatively underwhelming performance, Wolves were forced to loan him out to other clubs, which is why he first moved back to Italy and joined

Fiorentina

  • Transfer: Preston-Liverpool

  • Transfer fee: €500K

Liverpool’s bad luck resulted in them having quite a long list of injuries, especially at the back where

Virgil van Dijk

used to rule and act as the backbone of Jurgen Klopp’s team. Liverpool have not been same formidable side since their injury-riddled list got heavier and heavier each month this season. That is why Klopp acted fast and has signed Ben Davies from Preston for reportedly €500K. The 25-year-old center-back will surely help Liverpool solidify their backline a bit more than it currently is, as fans are eager to see their new “panic” signing in action.

Sepp Van Den Berg

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

With Ben Davies joining Liverpool for half a million Euros, Sepp Van Den Berg is set to move in the opposite direction and join Preston North End on loan from Liverpool.

This season, however, was different for the 2014 World Cup winner, as Mikel Arteta did not have much of a plan to implement Mustafi into his squad, which is why he opted to leave and join Bundesliga side Schalke instead.

Ozan Kabak

  • Transfer: Schalke 04-Liverpool

  • Transfer fee: €1M/On loan

While Liverpool spent €500K to bring in Ben Davies from Preston North End to further solidify their shaky back-four, Jurgen Klopp still needed another defender with more experience in elite top-flight football, which is why Liverpool have signed Turkish center-back Ozan Kabak on loan from Schalke for the rest of the current season. 20-year-old Kabak is one of the most exciting prospects of the new generation of footballers, whose current transfer value is believed to be around €25 million.

The Reds also have the option to make the move permanent for a little over €20 million if they see fit. Kabak will surely be motivated to bring his A-game and impress everyone at his new club in order to secure a permanent move to Liverpool.

Joseph Willock

  • Transfer: Arsenal-Newcastle

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Joe Willock

is not the only Arsenal player whose future at the Premier League club is unknown and has not been decided on as of yet, as

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

is also awaiting his sentence on loan at West Bromwich Albion. Even though the versatile midfielder made 21 appearances prior to his loan move to West Brom, only five of those were Premier League starts, which means that the Englishman was mostly used as a substitute and was not a regular starter for Arsenal.

With him getting less and less time on the pitch, the 23-year-old decided to move out on loan so that he can get more league starts, which is all he has ever wanted as a youngster trying to hone his skills.

Maitland-Niles believes that playing in the Premier League on a regular basis is fantastic and all he wants to do is show the world how good he is, which is why he has joined The Baggies on loan to prove his worth to his own club and of course other clubs who might be interested in signing the Englishman on a permanent deal.

Takumi Minamino

  • Transfer: Liverpool-Southampton

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

When Takumi Minamino joined Liverpool from

RB Salzburg

for €8.5 million, many had their doubts over the Japanese winger’s ability to earn a spot in Jurgen Klopp’s starting lineup. Those doubts have turned out to be true, as Minamino failed to become a regular starter at Liverpool, despite scoring a number of important goals for the Reds. The 26-year-old is an impressively versatile footballer and can play in literally every role in the midfield and up-field.

Of course Minamino is most comfortable playing as a left-winger and Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl believes that he will be able to help his side immediately, dubbing the Japanese winger as a “special” player to have. Minamino will be staying at Southampton for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.

After quite a disappointing spell in the Premier League, Marcos Rojo has now joined

According to the latest news on the Premier League winter transfer window,

Bournemouth

striker Joshua King has joined Everton for an undisclosed fee which is believed to be around €11 million.

The 29-year-old has signed a short-term contract with Carlo Ancelotti’s team, with his contract set to expire at the end of the current season.

The Norway international has a Premier League title and an EFL Cup title to his name, which he won with Manchester United in 2010 and 2011. He made his debut for Everton in the 1-2 away win over Leeds, in which he came on as a substitute and played for a mere three minutes before the final whistle.

Kenny made his debut for his new club the 4-0 away thrashing of

Kilmarnock FC

, in which he played the full 90 minutes and Celtic boss Neil Lennon had nothing but praise for the young right-back. He will surely be motivated to repeat the fine form that we saw of him during his loan spell at Schalke, where he managed to make 34 appearances across all competitions, even scoring 2 goals and providing 3 assists.
