The January transfer window is just around the corner allowing clubs to add to their squads before the remainder of the season. Deals halfway through the season are typically more expensive as clubs do not want to let their star players leave in the middle of a campaign. This means larger deals are usually completed in the summer, but some teams are willing to pay big money to secure an agreement in the New Year.
Transfer rumours have been rife in the build-up to the window opening once again. We take a look at eight players from the Premier League who could be on the move in January.
Linked with: West Brom, Nice, AC Milan, Inter, Marseille
French defender, Mamadou Sakho, was once a cult hero at Anfield, a favourite on the Kop. However, since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, he has been exiled from the first-team. Sakho missed the end of the last season due to failing a drugs test (he was later cleared) and failed to break back into the side after messing around in pre-season and missing a team meal. Sakho has been forced to play with the U23’s and has been told he has no future at the club.
According to CalcioMerto.com, Sakho is wanted by both of the Milan clubs who are keen to bring the former PSG captain to Italy. However, he will likely have offers to stay in the Premier League. West Brom emerged as favourites for his signature, but Sports Mole reported that the Baggies have cooled their interest. Wherever Sakho ends up, it is evident he has no future on Merseyside.
