Will Liverpool switch for a defender? Can City Lionel Messi be promoted? Isco to Arsenal? Dele Alli wants to leave Tottenham? The transmission window runs from 2 January to 1 February Follow the latest on Sky Sports News and a dedicated Transfer Center blog on the Sky Sports website and app

The winter transfer window will open on the 2nd January, but who needs what and who is most likely to do business in a notoriously difficult market? We rate every Premier League club

Arsenal’s priority is a creative attacking midfielder – although he faces the challenge of luring you into that window

The Gunners were loaned out for the remainder of the season with a move for Real Madrid’s Isco

But there is also an emphasis on departures, with Sokratis and Sead Kolasinac likely to be allowed to leave two players, Sky Sports News has previously reported that William Saliba, who has not yet appeared for the first team, may also be on loan

And what’s next for Mesut Ozil? He remains out of favor, but remains firmly convinced that he will see the rest of his contract

The club spent a lot of money over the summer, Ollie Watkins spent most of its £ 85m spending, and with Dean Smith’s crew high on the table, business isn’t a priority in January

But this is the transfer window, and should a bargain come up in the overseas market, Smith may have some wiggle room to further strengthen his ranks

Midfielder Jakub Moder will arrive in January after Brighton, who signed the Polish international from Lech Poznan in the last window and then loaned him back, decided to activate a recall clause

Striker Percy Tau, whose loan deal with Vincent Kompanys Anderlecht contains a recall clause, could also return

Tau, a South African international, has not yet been able to play for Graham Potter’s side as he does not have a work permit, but Brighton hopes to secure a board of directors for the player who is in the post-Brexit post-Brexit scoring system the Premier League should be represented

Potter has repeatedly said he wanted his current midfielders and attackers to be more vulnerable to scoring, and Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo could revert to his plans for the latter part of the season if they should be fit

Moder’s arrival may mean loan items for Jayson Molumby and Max Sanders. Left-back Bernardo has also dropped the pecking order at Amex and could leave that window

Goalkeeper Mat Ryan, who was dropped by Potter, may want to look for a new challenge while Christian Walton may be on loan again

But while Yves Bissouma and Tariq Lamptey have admirers in the Premier League, Brighton can do well with its best players in January and with the club looking to maintain their Premier League status, serious money would have to be offered either to move / p>

Sean Dyche’s hopes of doing business in January rest on American investment firm ALK Capital, which completed its acquisition late Wednesday evening

Dyche, who spent less than £ 1 million in the last window, has so far downplayed the likelihood of funds and while backers shouldn’t expect a drastic change in transfer policy, budgets could soon change significantly

A fast right winger is on the wish list and a center-back would be required if James Tarkowski were to leave

Numerous clubs, including West Ham and Leicester, have tried to lure Tarkovsky off Turf Moor in what appears to be an impending investment should help keep more admirers at bay

Frank Lampard injected more than £ 225million in the last window, so blues fans are unlikely to see transfer fireworks this month

However, in Chelsea’s recent stutter, Roman Abramovich could sanction some deals that could fund further investment in Lampard’s cadre while lowering labor costs

Marcos Alonso is a player who could be on the move – possibly for La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid

Inter Milan and Juventus have expressed an interest in Emerson although Lampard may not be ready to let him go in cup competitions after a string of strong performances

Olivier Giroud has continued to demonstrate his worth but may feel he needs more playing time with the European Championship ahead while Bayern Munich continue to be an admirer of Callum Hudson-Odoi

But Antonio Rüdiger and the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, Kepa Arrizabalaga

move more

Like so many windows before, the biggest question for Crystal Palace is: will Wilfried Zaha stay or go?

Zaha has been linked with moves to several of Europe’s top clubs, but the most likely move would be PSG, where Mauricio Pochettino will take the reins

A busy summer at the Palace means fans at Selhurst Park should expect more outs than ins. Last week, Roy Hodgson said, “We haven’t sat down and thought hard about what we need”That’s because we have a good and a large squad. You don’t want the players to continue to lie on the players”

The club’s focus should be on extending the terms of several players in the summer

Potential revenue at Goodison Park will likely depend on two or three players leaving the club

Everton will continue to hear offers from Yannick Bolasie, Cenk Tosun, Jonjoe Kenny and Mo Besic, but the Toffees can continue to surprise with their investments

While the full-back is no longer a priority given Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey come on, Carlo Ancelotti looks to strengthen his midfield as Allan is currently out and Fabian Delph suffers another injury-related season yet another offensive option with the possibility of Playing right through the middle and far out is also on the wish list

Fulham made 11 new signings in the summer With form and results improving at Craven Cottage, Scott Parker is unlikely to interfere too much with his squad

With Aleksandar Mitrovic only scoring twice in the entire season, a striker remains the Fulham boss’ priority

Leeds met the majority of its targets last time around and is unlikely to make similar investments in the January market

Injuries, especially in central midfield where Marcelo Bielsa’s options are limited, remain a cause for concern with Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton still out, Bielsa could be forced to join sales in January

With Leicester just spending £ 100m on a new training ground and a host of injured players returning, the official line is that Leicester is not trying to expand its ranks

When asked if he was expecting a deal in January, manager Brendan Rodgers said, “I don’t think so. If there’s something we think can really help and improve us, the club will always check But I don’t think anyone will get to “

However, given the Foxes’ confidence in this tenure of Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans, it makes sense to improve their defense options

Jamie Carragher again urged Jürgen Klopp to buy a defender in January after Joel Matip sustained another injury against West Brom to exacerbate the Reds’ defensive problems

With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Rhys Williams, Nathanial Phillips and Sepp van den Berg are the only recognized central defenders that Klopp currently has to choose from

Liverpool say they won’t sign anyone in this window – but they said so in the summer too, signing Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota

Experienced coverage in the middle would certainly make sense – Klopp recently told Sky Sports that the club’s careful approach to the market would still change to suit the circumstances

Joel Matip was injured again after this week’s draw with West Brom Sky Sports expert Jamie Carragher said: “That is why it is of the utmost importance that Liverpool sign someone in January I said that as soon as Virgil van Dijk got his injury Fabinho looked like a top-notch center-back but Matip is just too injury prone Liverpool need someone to make sure that two young boys don’t play there for five or six weeks if, for example, Fabinho is injured. They have to do something in January “

The Reds are also believed to try to strengthen themselves in the central midfield if Gini Wijnaldum leaves, despite ties to Ozan Kabak at Schalke

What about expenses? Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri are currently unlikely to be sold

Partizan Belgrade winger Filip Stevanovic will join in January, but City has little experience with big January deals – Aymeric Laporte was the first-team’s last arrival three years ago, and Pep Guardiola said the “economic situation was on the.” all over the world “this means we won’t sign a new striker this month

However, this is the position that has caused Guardiola the most trouble this season Sergio Aguero was only fit enough to start two games in the Premier League and Gabriel Jesus was also struggling with injuries

Aguero’s absence was very noticeable and his replacement is the marquee that the club is planning in the coming windows

But could this be the month City could finally land a deal to sign a world-class player they have long wanted?

Lionel Messi was planning to move to Manchester in the summer and was only turned down when he felt he had no choice but to retire when Barcelona threatened him with a bitter legal battle over his future

This legal hurdle will disappear on 1 January, when clubs outside Spain can officially open talks about a summer move when Messi’s contract expires, the city has the contacts and clout to make a move to Etihad a very attractive proposition, despite inevitably facing high competition from PSG Expenses would be exposed

For the same reason, foreign clubs can start talks with Eric Garcia, who has turned down an offer to extend his city contract beyond the end of the season and is expected to move to La Liga

Barcelona made a number of offers for the center-back on the last Deadline Day of the summer and while they fell short of City’s valuation of around £ 20m, Garcia’s heart remains on the return to his youth club

Youthful Atalanta winger Amad Diallo has been given a pass before his upcoming £ 372m transfer and progress is being made in obtaining Board approval The Ivorian’s arrival secures the right berth that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted to fill

But Manchester United are prioritizing the summer window when it comes to more appearances – including a new center-back and possibly a right-back, as well as a defensive midfielder Paul Pogba will have to leave

Odion Ighalo’s time at the club ends on 31 January, but as Solskjaer has hinted, attempts are made to renew another striker’s contract at Edinson Cavani

Other live editions include The Future of Brandon Williams, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Sergio Romero

Williams, who piqued Southampton’s interest, may be able to go on loan to get games, while United would like Rojo, Jones and Romero to be removed from their books

Jesse Lingard is another player linked with an exit from Old Trafford, but neither the player nor the club are actively seeking a move and Lingard could be offered another year

Steve Bruce has got permanent signatures in the form of Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, Jeff Hendrick and Jamal Lewis on the final window, but Bruce is unlikely to get any more permanent transfer fees unless a bargain comes up

He’s looking for a dynamic midfielder who can move around on the pitch – the kind of player he’s currently missing. There is also a search for a left full-back to deal with his team’s coronavirus issues with Lewis and the center-back can compete

The blades are at the bottom of the Premier League table, but manager Chris Wilder is only expecting loans to be signed in this window

Wilder has the option of two more players on loan – one domestic and one overseas – and is still looking for a left center-back to fill the void left by Jack O’Connell’s injury earlier in the year Season

Hoping to do business early and who has confirmed that he “made his recommendations to the board” after losing to Burnley, the Blades boss is also looking for an attacking midfielder to take care of his goal-shy strikers / p>

John Lundstram has not yet signed a new contract and can leave if a suitable offer is received

Southampton is mainly focused on keeping Danny Ings after his promising start Ralph Hasenhuttl hopes that the striker will sign a new contract with the club

But the Saints also want to bolster their defense by targeting Manchester United’s Brandon Williams. They missed Williams in the summer but Bayer Leverkusen are freshly connected

Jose Mouinho still wants a center-back and a defensive midfielder – but whether he will grant his wish in January remains to be seen

The focus seems to be more on spending, and the club will be listening to offers for Danny Rose, who is out of contract this summer, and Paulo Gazzaniga

Tottenham wants him to stay and fight for his place, but Mourinho remains unconvinced and Alli needs football spurs will likely withstand a loan but nothing is off the cards yet

Keep an eye on PSG The French club tried and failed to sign Alli this summer but Mauricio Pochettino’s upcoming arrival could mean a reunion in Paris

Sam Allardyce has his plan for survival, but will he have new players to work with?

“There is some money, some options, but there is a massive loss of revenue as Covid copes with it,” he said, “We will try to improve the team if we find a player”

Budgets are tight after the club spent more than planned over the summer, but the Baggies board is eager to support Allardyce where they can

The new boss wants to strengthen the team’s spine Center-backs, midfielders and strikers are on a long wish-list Although revenue is expected, the finances are unlikely to extend to all of Allardyce’s goals

West Ham has signed Danish central defender Frederik Alves from Silkeborg, a young candidate Will join forces with his new teammates on January 1st, but David Moyes has downplayed expectations of any large company

“As for January, we don’t have much intention of getting signatures, but the owners said they would help if we need it,” said the West Ham manager. “Obviously that has to do with injuries or something else to do that, if we need it we’ll try to get it, but when we talk about January it’s not always a great market “

Antonio’s recurring thigh problems and Sebastian Haller’s lack of goals mean the Hammers will try to add a striker

But purses continue to be tight at the London Stadium and no big money commitments are expected in the next month

A substitute striker has been on the Wolves wish list for the last couple of windows but it’s top priority following Raul Jimenez’s injury Fabio Silva has only met once since joining for £ 35m this summer and the club are reluctant to go putting a lot of pressure on the teen but finding an experienced No. 9 being blamed is one of the toughest positions for recruiting teams

Wolves were close to signing Nelson Oliveira last year and after scoring just two league goals for AEK Athens this season, he could be available at a reasonable price
