Back in the days, football fans were used to big money moves in the sport happening during the summer transfer window, not the winter transfer window. It was either the player’s contract was expiring then or the buyers wanted their new merchandise to start the new season with every other player.
But it has been such a different winter transfer window. Philippe Coutinho’s £146m move to Barcelona, went through despite all the obstacles. Virgil Van Dijk became one of the most expensive defenders on the planet and then there was Ross Barkley’s Blue move (from Everton to Chelsea).
And the transfer window is not even over yet. How much will be spent during this transfer window? Some names have become regular featured on the list of players that may just change clubs before the end of the winter window. Some of them are:
The Chilean has been in the transfer news since his move to Manchester City was frustrated by Arsenal last summer. So many Arsenal fans have also mentioned that the player’s unhappiness has affected how he plays football.
This winter, Sanchez may just be on his way out of Arsenal. Although Arsene Wenger has mentioned that no club has approached Sanchez, Man. City has not hidden its interest in the player whose contract with the Gunners expires this coming summer.
Will the whole Sanchez drama stop them from winning the first leg of the game?

Here’s another player that Arsenal is risking it all for. The player’s contract ends this summer which means the Gunners may lose him for free this next summer.
Reports have it that some clubs are not willing to wait that long. They want to snap up the German as quickly as possible. But the question is will Arsenal let their midfield maestro go?
It’s understandable if you’ve not heard of this player before. The Serbian midfielder who plays for Lazio has been described as the next big thing that could take the Premier League by storm. He’s currently being courted by Manchester United according to reports and the player nicknamed “Sergente” may just join the United ranks in the coming days.
Jose Mourinho, in the past few days, has not held back his criticisms about the player. The Special One obviously doesn’t rate him, something that has led to other clubs making enquiries about the player’s availability. Maybe he’s the player that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is set to replace. Who knows!
The veteran defender has been one of the names linked with a move away from West Brom. He almost moved last summer, with Manchester City almost adding him to their all-conquering side.
With the winter window open, Arsenal and Manchester City are favorites to land the former Manchester United defender. But West Brom may not want to sell. They may just need the defender to help them survive relegation.
Names like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Michy Batshuayi, Francis Coquelin have also been linked with moves away from their current clubs. Will all these moves happen before the close of the winter transfer window? Which player would you like to see your club sign?
