7 transfers that could still happen before January window slams shut

The January transfer window is now in full swing after two weeks of 2019.

Chelsea got the ball rolling with the signing of Christian Pulisic, although the American will spend the rest of the season with current club Borussia Dortmund.

Bournemouth have been busy too, snapping up Liverpool duo Nathaniel Clyne and Dominic Solanke.

There is sure to be plenty of other players on the move in what remains of the window as we build up towards deadline day.

The Spaniard has emerged as Arsenal’s No.1 transfer target – and he is open to the switch.

A loan move to the Emirates has been mooted with Suarez likely to join permanently in the summer.

With Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan both sidelined, Unai Emery is eyeing reinforcements.

Gonzalo Higuain to Chelsea

The Argentine striker has been identified by Maurizio Sarri as the answer to Chelsea’s goalscoring problems.

Callum Wilson is another option for the Blues with an arrival likely paving the way for Alvaro Morata to go.

The Blues hierarchy are believed to have reservations over a deal for Higuain, though.

Nikola Milenkovic to Manchester United

The Serbian defender has been on United’s radar for some time, dating back to when Jose Mourinho was manager.

Fiorentina don’t have any plans to sell though, particularly not this month, and it would take a big offer from United to get him.

Will Solskjaer get the green light to make a move?

Callum Hudson-Odoi to Bayern Munich

Hudson-Odoi is the latest bright English youngster being eyed for a move to Germany.

Bayern have made multiple offers for the Chelsea winger but they have so far proven unsuccessful.

Chelsea have no intention to sell but their hand may be forced if the offers continue.

Tammy Abraham to Crystal Palace

The Chelsea loanee is impressing at Aston Villa and his goalscoring exploits alerted Wolves earlier this month.

That deal is no longer on the table but Palace are looking into the possibility of landing Abraham.

Chelsea are keen for him to test himself in the Premier League and Palace desperately need some goals.

James McCarthy to Bournemouth

The Irish midfielder has recovered from a serious leg break to return to the Everton fold.

His opportunities may well be limited though due to Everton’s options in central midfield.

Bournemouth could look to take him on loan while Fulham are also keen.

Nicolo Barella to Chelsea

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wants an addition in midfield to let Cesc Fabregas go.

Cagliari midfielder Barella is on his radar as is Leandro Paredes of Zenit.

It is likely to be a case of one or the other rather than both for the Blues.
