January Transfer Window: Players on the potential moves
The January transfer window for football clubs could be busier this year. January is usually considered a slow time for transfers, but there are several factors that could spur activity in the market. Some English Premier League clubs may be interested in players from Europe, with top clubs stockpiling talent but some players lacking playing time, especially with Euro 2024 looming and the threat of losing places in their national teams. In this article we will look at famous players who may change clubs this month. These transitions can significantly change the balance of teams and bookmaker odds.

Jadon Sancho (Manchester United)
Sancho from Manchester United found himself in a difficult situation after a conflict with the head coach. To return to the team, a young talent needs to apologize, which the player does not want to do. A breakup seems inevitable, although new investors may try to mediate. A return to the Bundesliga would be a likely move, especially given the interest from Jadon's former club Borussia Dortmund.
Clubs that have expressed interest: Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Bayer Leverkusen, Juventus.
Donyell Malen (Borussia Dortmund)
The Dutch player has shown interest in the Premier League after moving from PSV Eindhoven to Borussia Dortmund in 2021. Although he is firmly included in Dortmund's starting line-up, rumors have surfaced of a possible sale. His time at the club could be described as "promising" but "inconsistent". The player showed his best level in the second half of last season, when Dortmund fought for the Bundesliga title but failed to win it. To complete the transaction, the buyer will need an amount of about 30 million euros.
Interested clubs: Liverpool, Manchester United.
Seru Girasi (Stuttgart)
Serou Guirassy, the French international who represents Guinea, is in excellent form in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart. He scored 11 goals in 22 appearances last season while on loan, which led to the German club signing him permanently. This year he has already scored 17 goals in 14 league matches, attracting the attention of all European football. His contract contains a buyout option for just €17.5 million, making him very attractive to potential buyers.
Interested clubs: Manchester United, Milan, Tottenham, West Ham.
Hugo Ekitike (PSG)
The PSG forward decided in the summer to stay and fight for a place in the Parisian club, rejecting several transfer offers. But his choice turned out to be unfortunate: he spent only nine minutes on the field during the season, and the team management expressed concerns about his mental state due to this situation. PSG are rumored to be keen to recoup a significant portion of the €35 million they paid Reims for him, but that seems unrealistic given his lengthy absence from the first team. The most likely option seems to be a loan, as clubs from France, England, Germany and Italy are showing interest in the player.
Interested clubs: Crystal Palace, Lyon, Eintracht Frankfurt, Roma.
Calvin Phillips (Manchester City)
The Manchester City midfielder finds himself in a situation where he will need to change clubs to confirm his place in the national team. He failed to establish himself in Guadiola's team, raising questions about why he was signed in the first place. Guardiola clearly does not see Phillips in his plans, which makes the Englishman's departure already in the January transfer window most likely. Juventus have expressed interest in signing the player, but a number of English Premier League clubs are also interested in loaning the midfielder. However, the deal will be expensive as City will demand a loan fee and part of his high weekly salary of £130,000.
Interested clubs: Juventus, Newcastle, Everton.
Ivan Toney (Brentford)
The Brentford striker would have been a prime target for Premier League clubs had he not been suspended for a gambling offence. His suspension ends on January 17, making him a high-value target for clubs in need of quality reinforcements. He scored 12 goals in his first season in the Premier League, and subsequently was able to upset opposing goalkeepers as many as 20 times. Although Brentford want to keep Tony, specific interest from other clubs could make it difficult to retain the player.
Interested clubs: Arsenal, Chelsea.
