With the busy Christmas period approaching, the Premier League is already in full swing. Each of the clubs has already found themselves their own battles to fight and for almost all of them, the January transfer window could be the right time to bring in some much-needed reinforcements.

It is, however, a seller's market in January. Not many big players usually want to leave their clubs midway through the season. The same goes for the clubs as well. Not many clubs would want to sell their star players in the middle of the season.

But transfers go through nonetheless. Disgruntled players, expiring contracts and lure of playing at the very highest level usually mean that January windows are usually the most exciting ones, with storylines developing all over the league.

And this January is no different.

Take a look at the 3 storylines in the Premier League that should take centre-stage during the winter window.

#3 Ramsey chooses his next destination

“Would I stay for the rest of the season? Of course, yeah, I am contracted to Arsenal and I am going to do my best to try and achieve something special.”

That is what Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey had to say to the press when asked about his contract situation at Arsenal. His situation at the club has been widely publicised and while he has guaranteed to give it all to the Gunners, he will likely make his next destination of choice public sooner rather than later.

With Bayern and Real Madrid both lurking along with Chelsea and Manchester United, it is safe to say that the 27-year-old does not lack suitors. This storyline could go multiple ways with clubs free to talk to the Welshman with only six months left on his contract.

It will be interesting to say if Arsenal’s longest-tenured player decides to stay in the premier league or moves to the continent in search of his new club.
