- These transfers could play a huge role in deciding the fate of many clubs during the second phase of the current ISL campaign.

Many teams choose not to change their lineup while most of the coaches decided to fix a few bugs here and there.
In this article, let us look at the top 5 transfers done by the ISL teams in the January transfer window.
Among the transfers that did not make the list, the Honorable mentions include Halicharan Narzary to Chenniyin FC and Ulises Davila to Delhi Dynamos. Let us see who the 5 footballers are who made our list.
# 5 Pritam Kotal
The Indian defender has lots to offer when it comes to the field. Be it the elegant tackles or the timely blocks as a defender, or be it the sharp runs down the wings into the opposition box, Pritam Kotal is up for it.
It was for this reason Kotal was signed by the Delhi Dynamos FC as one of the top tier Indian players. But the story was the same for Delhi as like the previous seasons of ISL. Even after showing much promise with the style of play, they could not convert it into points.
Now that ATK has grabbed him from Delhi, Pritam Kotal will look to help the Kolkata Side take the final leap into being one of the top four teams in the league.
With Steve Coppell at the helm, the defense is supposed to be a strong point of any team that he manages.
Having the quality of Pritam Kotal will help to put the ideas of Coppell into the football field and ATK can hope to have less defensive issues to worry about.
