The January transfer window is open for the teams to do mid-course correction as the managers begin their search for answers to help their quest – be it winning the league, qualifying for Champions League or beating the drop.

English Premier League is in the midst of an interesting season with many teams stacked together at the top and bottom with no runaway favorites. Chelsea are almost out of reckoning for winning the league but harbor slim hopes of reaching top four. Manchester United would like to gain some consistency while City would love to splash more cash towards winning the title. Arsenal wouldn’t want to lose an opportunity to end a long wait for the Premier League. So, who shall the clubs buy?



This is the best chance for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal to win the elusive Premier League title. This would be their best chance since 2004 to win the League and the club has already added defensive midfielder Mohamed Elneny from Basel. Wenger refused to sign any striker in the summer transfer window and has so far done well with the resources at disposal. But, will this be enough to continue their march to title? Wenger should be targeting a striker but you never will be able to find out what’s cooking in his mind!

Coming in: Mohamed Elneny

Dream signing: Adrien Rabiot


After a very bad start, the club parted ways with Jose Mourinho and handed charge to Guus Hiddink. The Dutchman must have realized the soft underbelly of the club and could be forced to play his hand in the transfer market. The flop show of Falcao could force them to go for another striker but will they be able to sign any quality players? Alex Teixeira is rumored for a long time to be coming in while the chase for Antonine Griezmann is for the dreamers.

Coming in: Alex Teixera

Dream signing: Antoine Griezmann

Manchester City

With Pep Guardiola rumored to be taking over at the club next summer, it is a matter of pride for current incumbent Manuel Pellegrini to make a mark before he leaves. With City struggling to claim the favorites tag, the Chilean could be forced to dip into the market.

Coming in: Andrija Zivkovic

Dream signing: Isco

Manchester United

Such has been the pressure on Louis van Gaal that a draw against Chelsea was considered a huge improvement – prior to their win against Swansea. Van Gaal knows very well that he would be judged almost on a game-by-game basis and would demand immediate replacements in wide positions and preferably a left-back.

Coming in: Lucas Moura, Yoshinori Muto

Dream signing: Gareth Bale
