The winter transfer window has started and all the teams in the Premier League have started to look at the players who will make their teams stronger. Some signings in January turn out to be masterstrokes but we are also inclined to get a few stinkers along the way considering the financial power every Premier League club has.

As no one can really guess in today's transfer market what the right amount for a player should be, we are bound to find a few ineffective signings on the way and we discuss the worst of them in recent history here.

These are the 4 worst January transfers to take place in the Premier League in my opinion:

#4 Jan Kromkamp

The last few years have seen Liverpool consolidate themselves as one of Europe's elite clubs for transfer negotiations, picking up the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino for under 40 million pounds each and making a combined profit of over 150 million pounds on Suarez and Coutinho.

But back in the 2000s, their transfer business was in absolute shambles. Jan Kromkamp joined Liverpool from Villarreal in 2006. Kromkamp had just made 6 starts in LaLiga before joining Liverpool.

The then Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez took a risk signing Jan but it didn't really work out very well as Kromkamp couldn't offer anything to the Reds. He offered nothing on his deliveries and didn't really contribute defensively whenever he got a chance to play at the Anfield. He left the same summer for PSV after starting only 6 games for Liverpool that season.
