#3 Willian Jose

Wolves needed backup options upfront, and the Willian Jose could prove to be a good signing for the rest of the Premier League season.

With young forward Fabio Silva not quite ready to lead the line yet in Raul Jimenez’s absence in the Premier League, Nuno Espirito Santo needed someone to share the burden of goals up top.

Willian Jose may not have had a good season for Real Sociedad before signing for Wolves, but he has already proven in the past that he can lead the line well.

A strong forward who is good with the ball at his feet, Willian Jose is usually a good finisher, and the more playing time he gets, the better he will be for Wolves. Definitely a shrewd buy from Wolves in January.

#4 Martin Odegaard

Odegaard burst onto the scene around seven years ago, yes that’s how young he was when he made an impression, and he is still only 22.

Despite playing well in several loan stints, he has failed to get into the Real Madrid starting XI and joined Arsenal on loan in January.

Odegaard is yet to feature prominently for Arsenal, having made just one appearance off the bench late on in a game. However, at his best, he will provide more creative impetus at Arsenal.


Often compared to Lionel Messi for his style of play, Odegaard has adapted his game and become an attacking midfielder can unlock defences.

Last season, he scored four times and provided six assists in La Liga during his loan spell with Real Sociedad, and Mikel Arteta will hope he can have a similar impact for the Gunners in the remaining months in the Premier League.

#5 Ozan Kabak

Liverpool have had an injury-ravaged season so far, and it looks unlikely that they will retain the Premier League title. However, there’s still plenty to play for, and they finally made their move to sign some reinforcements on deadline day.

While Ben Davies joined before Ozan Kabak, the latter is a player to watch out for in the coming months.

Signed on a loan deal until the end of the season with an option to make the move permanent, Kabak will have a lot to prove.


The Turkish international had a troubled time at Schalke in the Bundesliga last year, and but he has the chance to put that behind him with some strong displays for Liverpool in the Premier League.

A good distributor of the ball and with pace to burn, Kabak could fit in well under Klopp and help them push Manchester City in the coming months if not overcome them in the Premier League table.
