The January transfer window is approaching and it is that time of the year again where clubs start looking for new players to bolster their squad or look to clear some deadwood. This time around, some very talented players could be on the move and some shrewd signings could well prove to be the difference between a successful and an underwhelming season.
Without much ado, let us look at some top players who could make a move in the January transfer window
#22 Aleix Vidal (Barcelona)
Barcelona right-back Aleix Vidal is not part of Luis Enrique’s plans this year. Vidal made his first appearance for Barcelona this season at home to newly-promoted outfit Alaves, against whom, the club slipped to shocking 2-1 defeat at the Nou Camp. The Spaniard was roundly criticised by the media as well as the supporters and was named one of the worst players on the day, rounding off a dismal day for the reigning league champions.
Various reports in the Spanish press claim the out-of-favour full-back is on his way out of Barcelona, seeking new pastures to restart his once-promising career. Inter Milan have been reported as one of the giant clubs looking to swoop for the Spaniard and bolster their squad in the January transfer window.
Sunderland are also surprisingly on the lookout for Aleix Vidal and with first team action looking bleak for the Spaniard, a transfer might well be on the cards in January. Here is a video showing Vidal’s skills when he was at Sevilla
