How much have English clubs spent over the past few weeks to boost their squad strength?

Premier League 2022 winter transfer window

as you too would like to analyze how each club has fared so far in the transfers department.

Premier League January 2022 transfer window

While many might have expected to see the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool spending significant amounts of money to sign new arrivals, other clubs such as Aston Villa and Everton have stepped up to take the spotlight. Of course Newcastle’s new journey towards becoming a global footballing power has also begun as they too have made signings in the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window. So without further ado, here is everything you need to know about the arrivals and departures of the English top-flight.

Arsenal

Arrivals:

Information will be duly updated

Departures:

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (AS Roma – Loan) Sead Kolasinac (Marseille), Calum Chambers (Aston Villa), Pablo Mari (Udinese Calcio), Dejan Iliev (released)

Arsenal have upped their game in recent months as Mikel Arteta has finally figured out how to manage his players. While the Gunners are still far away from their golden days and are still struggling to cement their position in a European tournament spot, they are slowly gaining momentum to launch themselves towards the top-4 position. Of course it would be difficult to reach Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City as these clubs are fighting their own specific battle.

The

Premier League 2022 winter transfer window

has not been much of a busy one for

Arsenal

as they have not acquired any players until now. The arrivals department might be empty, but the departures department has more than made up for it. The English club have let go of several players for free, while loaning out Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Pablo Mari to AS Roma and Udinese Calcio respectively.

Sead Kolasinac has joined Olympique Marseille on a free transfer deal as Calum Chambers has decided to stay in the English top-flight by joining Aston Villa on a free transfer deal. With the deadline day for the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window being on January 31, it is quite unlikely that Arsenal will sign anyone. Yet nothing is certain in the world of football and the Gunners might surprise us at the very end.

Aston Villa

Arrivals:

Lucas Digne (€30M),  Calum Chambers (free), Philippe Coutinho (loan), Robin Olsen (loan)

Departures:

Keinan Davis (Nottingham Forest – loan), Anwar El Ghazi (Everton – loan), Jaden Philogene-Bidace (Stoke City – loan), Cameron Archer (Preston North End - loan)

Aston Villa

have breathed a fresh breath of air since Steven Gerrard’s appointment as their new manager. They have managed to boost their squad strength by signing several world-class players either on permanent deals or by loaning them for the rest of the season with an option to buy in the summer. There has been a lot of

Premier League 2022 transfer news

surrounding Aston Villa thanks to all these arrivals and departures over the past few weeks.

While the Lions are still far from reaching the top clubs in the league, they seem to be on the right path towards success and their recently acquired members are a testament to their will. Amongst Aston Villa’s English premier league transfers – 2021/2022 are Lucas Digne, who has joined the EPL club from Everton for €30 million, Calum Chambers, who has joined the club for free from Arsenal, and Robin Olsen and Philippe Coutinho, who have arrived at the Villa Park on loan from AS Roma and Barcelona respectively.

Gerrard and his team have not let go of any player in the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window as they have only loaned out their youth to further develop their careers.

Brentford

Arrivals:

Jonas Lossl (loan)

Departures:

Dominic Thompson (Ipswich Town – loan), Joel Valencia (Alcorcon – loan)

Brentford have been quite passive in the

Premier League January 2022 transfer window

as they have only acquired Jonas Lossl on loan, while loaning out Dominic Thompson and Joel Valencia to Ipswich Tow and Alcorcon respectively. No major arrivals or departures has been reported for the Bees as they are currently focusing on staying above the relegation zone.

While they are still a couple of points in the clear, their recent form might be an indication of a quite severe dip in form. With four defeats and a single win in their last five league games, Brentford might need to up their game if they wish to stay in the English top-flight.

Brighton & Hove Albion

Arrivals:

Kacper Kozlowski (€11M), Moises Caicedo (end of loan), Christian Walton (end of loan)

Departures:

Jurgen Locadia (VfL Bochum), Aaron Connolly (Middlesbrough – loan), Leo Ostigard (Genoa – loan)

According to the latest Premier League 2022 transfer news,

Brighton

 have surprisingly been one of the more active clubs in the market. While most of their arrivals are their own players returning from their respective loan spells, Brighton have signed Kacper Kozlowski from Polish side Pogon Szczecin for €11 million. The 18-year-old midfielder impressed amongst his peers in the Polish top-flight and earned himself a €10 million market value in no time.

We will have to wait and see how he is implemented into his new club’s squad. Brighton manager Graham Potter has been keeping his side in a constant state with four draws in their last five league games and he may have used the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window to further cement his side’s position in the middle of the league table.

Burnley

Arrivals:

information will be duly updated

Departures:

Chris Wood (Newcastle)

Burnley have made quite the profit by letting go of 30-year-old Chris Wood for a massive fee of €30 million. The New Zealander is actually worth around €6 million in the market and his transfer to New Castle has definitely benefited both the player and his former club. Wood initially joined Burnley from Leeds United for €16 million in 2017 and is now one of the first players to join Newcastle’s aspiring project.

Sean Dyche’s side are in deep trouble as they have only earned 12 points from their first 18 league games. They are well in the relegation zone and only a miracle can save them from being relegated into the lower tier.

Chelsea

Arrivals:

Kenedy (end of loan)

Departures:

Lewis Baker (Stoke City)

Chelsea spent more than enough in their glorious 2020-21 summer transfer window, which helped them win the Champions League in an all-English final against Pep Guardiola’s star-studded Manchester City. That is why the Blues have stayed dormant for the time being and are not active in the department of Premier League transfers in 2021/22. While many expected to see Chelsea competing for the league title shoulder to shoulder with Manchester City, they have not managed to live up to the billing due to all the injury and fitness issues and all that Romelu Lukaku drama that stirred up some controversy.

They are currently ten points behind league leaders Manchester City and are currently battling for the second spot with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who have two games in hand at the moment. Perhaps we won’t see Chelsea being active in

Premier League transfers in 2021/22

, but Thomas Tuchel might need to rethink his strategies to turn things around in his reportedly unhappy dressing room.

Crystal Palace

Arrivals:

information will be duly updated.

Departures:

Jacob Montes (Molenbeek – loan)

Crystal Palace might be sitting 13th on the league table for the time being, but they could be in deep trouble if they continue in this fashion. Palace have not been active in the

Premier League 2022 winter transfer window

, which is why they have not signed any players over the course of the past few weeks.

Not only have they not signed any new players, they have also been quite passive in the departures department as Jacob Montes is the only departing player from the club. Of course Montes will be returning to the English side at the end of the season as he is only temporarily loaned out to Belgian side Molenbeek.

Everton

Arrivals:

Vitaliy Mykolenko (€23M), Nathan Patterson (€14M), Anwar El Ghazi (on loan from Aston Villa).

Departures:

Lucas Digne (Aston Villa)

Everton were a mess under Rafa Benitez’s management, which is why they are currently fighting for their lives just above the relegation zone. With only a dismal 19 points from their first 20 league games, Everton are in serious trouble and they have put all their hopes into Frank Lampard’s basket. The former Chelsea manager has agreed to join Everton in their journey towards turning the tides in their favor once again.

Amongst the Premier League transfers in 2021/22 are Vitaliy Mykolenko, Nathan Patterson and Anwar El Ghazi, the latter of whom has joined the Toffees on loan from Aston Villa. Everton have already used the resources earned from Lucas Digne’s sale to Aston Villa to pay for Mykolenko and Patterson’s transfer fees. With Lampard set to join the English side for his second chance to succeed as a Premier League manager, we will have to wait and see if the club can get out of the rut they have been in for quite some time.

Leeds United

Arrivals:

information will be duly updated.

Departures:

Cody Drameh (Cardiff City – loan)

Even though Leeds United might be fighting for their right to stay in the Premier League until the end of the season, at least they are still above Everton and Norwich City and can breathe a sigh of relief for the time being. We haven’t seen any moves from Leeds in the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window and we might not see any particular arrivals or departures at all.

Leicester City

Arrivals:

Sam Hughes (end of loan)

Departures:

Filip Benkovic (Udinese Calcio)

Leicester City

are far away from their record-breaking and history 2015-16 season when they somehow managed to become Premier League champions against all odds. The Foxes are right in the middle of the league table with 26 points and are currently battling it out with Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa and Graham Potter’s Brighton & Hove Albion. Leicester have been one of the many dormant sides in the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window as they have not signed any particular players over the course of the past few weeks.

With no arrivals in the winter, Leicester have also let go of their 24-year-old center-back Filip Benkovic, who has joined Udinese Calcio on a free transfer deal. Even though Leicester are not doing particularly well in the English top-flight, their incredible superstar Jamie Vardy has been truly phenomenal for his side in the new season. He has already bagged himself 9 league goals and is only behind Mohamed Salah on the list of EPL top scorers.

Liverpool

Arrivals:

Rhys Williams (end of loan)

Departures:

information will be duly updated

Liverpool

have been saving up some money in recent months and did not even get to spend that much in the summer either, considering how well-endowed the reds are following their recent success in the Premier League and the Champions League. Jurgen Klopp might need to think about further solidifying his side’s defenses as there isn’t much of a squad depth at the back to boast about. Yet Liverpool have been inactive in the winter transfer window as no arrivals or departures have been recorded for the English club.

The only footballer on the list of English premier league transfers – 2021/2022 is Rhys Williams, who has returned from his loan spell at Swansea City. With Liverpool being almost ten points behind league leaders Manchester City, we will have to wait and see if they can catch up to City in the coming weeks or if the Skyblues are going win yet another league title.

Manchester City

Arrivals:

luka Ilic (end of loan), Patrick Roberts

Departures:

Ferran Torres (Barcelona), Patrick Roerts (Sunderland)

Nobody knows how Barcelona are still able to sign new players even though they were unable to hold on to Lionel Messi due to monetary and financial regulations. Aside from Barcelona’s mysterious spelling spree, Manchester City have made a profit by selling Ferran Torres to Barcelona for €55 million. They had initially signed the Spaniard from Valencia for €33 million in the summer of 2020.

While Pep Guardiola was hesitant to let go of his young talent, Torres reportedly insisted on this move as he showed that it was his desire to play for the Blaugranas. Of course with all the limited game time that he had been getting at Manchester City, nobody would blame him for joining another club to prove his worth. City are yet to spend the money earned from Torres’ sale in the Premier League 2022 winter transfer window and are already linked with several other young talents playing in other leagues around the world.

Manchester United

Arrivals:

Tahith Chong (end of loan)

Departures:

Axel Tuanzebe (SSC Napoli), Anthony Martial (Sevilla – loan), Amad Diallo (Rangers – loan)

Ralf Rangnick has been doing some cleaning up with everything in his power as he plans to create a more unified squad. While he is not able to sign anyone as the interim manager, he has sent the likes of Axel Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial out on loan to Napoli and Sevilla respectively.

United don’t have much to boast about amongst the

English premier league transfers – 2021/2022

as they have not spent ridiculous amounts of money to bring in new signings. The Red Devils are currently sitting fourth behind Chelsea on the league table and will definitely compete for a place in a Champions League spot until the very end.

Newcastle United

Arrivals:

Chris Wood (€30M), Kieran Trippier (€15M), Jake Turner (end of loan), Matty Longstaff (end of loan)

Departures:

information will be duly updated.

Newcastle fans are over the moon right now as they are about to witness an incredible era of success in their club’s history. With Newcastle being acquired by their eastern owners, some serious amount of money has been injected into the club and we are all expecting to see big signings in the next couple of season.

The Premier League 2022 winter transfer window was not as legendary Newcastle as some may have hoped, but it certainly showed us a glimpse of the future as the Magpies acquired Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid for €15 million, while paying €30 million for Chris Wood’s signature.

The only thing that the club’s manager Eddie Howe must do for the time being is helping his side stay in the Premier League for the next season. But this feat might be too hard to achieve with Newcastle’s recent run of form. They are currently sitting 18th on the league table and are already in the relegation zone.

Norwich City

Arrivals:

Josh Martin (end of loan), Onel Hernandez (end of loan)

Departures:

Bali Mumba (Peterborough – loan), Onel Hernandez (Birmingham – loan)

Norwich City are no better than Newcastle when it comes to their position on the league table. The

Premier League 2022 January transfer window

has not been a particularly important one for the Canaries as they have opted to stay out of the market for a while.

Southampton

Arrivals:

Willy Caballero (free transfer)

Departures:

Dan N’Lundulu (Cheltenham – loan)

Southampton are one of those fighting for their place in the middle of the table alongside the likes of Aston Villa and Crystal Palace. The Premier League 2022 January transfer window has not had much of a significance for Southampton they have only signed free agent Willy Caballero. The 40-year-old goalkeeper is set to help in improving the club’s academy while also helping the English side boos their stats in the league.

Tottenham

Arrivals:

Alfie Whiteman (end of loan)

Departures:

Jack Clarke (Sunderland – loan)

The Premier League 2022 January transfer window has been the same for

Tottenham

as it has been for many other clubs in the English top-flight. The Spurs have refrained from signing anyone in the winter as they are currently trying to cement their position in a European tournament spot. Tottenham are currently on-par with Arsenal with 36 points, but have a game in hand. The departures department of the club has been quite idle as well as they have only loaned out jack Clarke to Sunderland.

Watford

Arrivals:

Maduka Okoye (€5M), Edo Kayembe (€4.7M), Hassane Kamara (€4M), Yaser Asprilla (€3M), Samuel Kalu (€3M)

Departures:

Maduka Okoye (Sparta Rotterdam – loan), Pontus Dahlberg (Gillingham FC – loan)

Watford have surprisingly been one of the more active teams in the winter transfer window as they have signed more than a couple of players in recent weeks. They have signed Samuel Kalu and Yaser Asprilla for €3 million each, while paying a total sum of €8 million for Hassane Kamara and Edo Kayembe. The English club’s most expensive signing, however, has been 22-year-old goalkeeper Maduka Okoye, who has joined Watford from Sparta Rotterdam for €5 million. Of course the Nigerian has since been loaned back to his former club in order to further improve his stats in the Eredivisie.

West Ham United

Arrivals:

Conor Coventry (end of loan)

Departures:

Conor Coventry (MK Dons – loan)

West Ham have been the surprise package of the 2021-22 season as David Moyes has managed to turn the tides in his side’s favor. The Hammers are currently competing for a spot in the Champions League as they are running shoulder to shoulder alongside Manchester United and Arsenal. Perhaps that is why Moyes did not make any tweaks to his well-working machine. The club’s supporters and even the neutrals are certainly watching West Ham’s progress with great interest as they can earn themselves their well-earned place in the UCL for the next campaign.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Arrivals:

Hayao Kawabe (€600k) Sang-bin Jung (€1.2), Chiquinho (€3.5M)

Departures:

Leonardo Campana (Miami CF – loan), Hayao Kawabe (Grasshoppers – loan)

The winter transfer window has been quite busy for Wolverhampton Wanderers, who have signed several young talents to add to their prospect stars in the making. With Chiquinho, Sang-bin Jung and Hayao Kawabe arriving from Estoril Praia, Suwon Bluewings and Grasshoppers respectively, the Wolves are definitely planning for the future.
