Top 5 transfers which could happen in January
The January transfer window has officially been opened and a month-long window would be a nice opportunity for many clubs to make a few signings to improve their squads. While a few deals which were left incomplete in the previous transfer window would be finished now, we can expect a lot of surprise transfers in January.
The competition at various leagues has been tight this season and hence, this window would be vital for most teams. A signing or two could make a huge difference to the fortunes of many top Europen clubs.
On the other hand, most managers do not prefer to make any major signings in this month, unless it is absolutely necessary. Therefore, it would be an interesting transfer window this time. West Ham has already announced the signing of Samir Nasri and that would set the tone for other clubs to follow. Also, Chelsea recently announced the signing of Pulisic from Dortmund.
On that note, we have compiled a list of possible transfers that could happen this month.
Adrien Rabiot to Barcelona
Adrien Rabiot is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain and the talented midfielder has multiple suitors across Europe. His creativity and the ability to create chances could be an asset to the team he signs for.
Barcelona lost Andres Iniesta at the beginning of this season and the likes of Busquets, Vidal, and Rakitic will need a backup very soon. Vidal was not signed as a long-term solution to Iniesta and Rakitic will be 31 in March.
Hence, Barcelona has identified Adrien Rabiot as a target for the January transfer window. Rabiot would be a good signing for Barcelona and apart from some competition from a few Premier League clubs, Barcelona need not worry anything else about the transfer.
The player himself is intent on moving to a big club and the fans at Barcelona can expect the youngster to wear the Barcelona shirt by the end of this month.
