The transfer market is in full swing at the moment as the winter transfer window opened on the 1st of January. The January transfer window provides the last opportunity for clubs to bolster their respective squads, to boost their aims in the last stretch of the 2018-19 campaign.

Last year's January transfer window saw some historic deals take place. Philippe Coutinho made a big move to Barcelona, Virgil van Dijk landed at the red half of Merseyside, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Aymeric Laporte also switched clubs in the winter transfer window of 2018.

This same has occurred in this window, transfer rumours are infectious in the football world and immense transfer speculation has already started to mount around some of the top players.

Some deals have already been agreed but there could be many more deals to come in what is left of the window.

On this very note, we take a look at some strange transfers which could take place in the January transfer window.

#4 Divock Origi to Tottenham

Due to Son Heung-min's absence due to Asia Cup and sudden unfortunate injury to Harry Kane has seen Tottenham's attacking options becoming thin and it could urge them to swoop for a forward in the January transfer window.

According to astonishing reports, Liverpool's out of favour striker Divock Origi has now become a target for the Spurs.


The Belgian striker is lacking play time this season at the Red Half of Merseyside having made just two appearances in Premier League.

With Origi in seek of playing time and with Spurs in the lookout for a striker, a deal may get completed. But chances of the deal appears to be very thin as Reds selling Origi to direct title rivals Tottenham looks doubtful.
