As the January transfer window is coming to a close in it’s final week, let’s take a look at the top signings that caught everyone’s eye in the first month of 2014.

Aiden McGeady

The pacy winger joined Everton from Spartak Moscow on a four-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee. He won four Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish League Cups and two Scottish Cups in six years for Celtic before moving to Russia. He is on this list because of his fancy tricks, notably “The McGeady Spin”.

 

Juan Mata

Who would have imagined Chelsea’s two-time Player of the Year to be benched in the first half of the season under new coach Jose Mourinho? The likes of Oscar (new number 10 described by The Special One), Eden Hazard,  summer signings Willian and Andre Schurrle made it difficult for the Spanish international to break into the starting eleven. David Moyes decided to break the bank and capture Juan Mata’s signature for a club record fee of £37.1 million. Juan Mata vowed to perform in every game in order to make it into the Spanish squad for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer.

 

Mohamed Salah

The battle to capture Mohamed Salah’s signature between Liverpool and Chelsea was one of the highlights of the January transfer window. The 21-year old Egyptian eventually signed for the Blues for a fee reported to be £11 million. He captured the eyes of world football after scoring in both victories over Chelsea for Basel in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

 

Nemanja Matic

He was formerly a Chelsea player, before leaving for Benfica in a deal which brought David Luiz to Chelsea. He rejoined the Londoners for for a fee of £21 million. At 6 foot 4, the Serbian was what Jose Mourinho was looking for. He wanted depth in his squad, and depth he has, with Frank Lampard, Ramires, Nemanja Matic, John Obi Mikel and David Luiz as an alternative.

Liverpool Ponder Summer Move For Swedish Attacking Starlet!

Premier League giants Liverpool are understood to be interested in signing young Fulham front man Muamer Tankovic at the end of this season.

The Merseysiders are said to have been keeping close tabs on the Swede of late with a view to possibly landing the player this summer, with the Reds having even recently sent scouts down to west London in order to watch Tankovic first hand.

And with Tankovic’s current deal with the Cottagers set to run out on June 30 2014, the 18-year-old will be available to pick up on a Bosman-style free transfer come the climax to this campaign, which makes the attacking starlet an even more attractive proposition to Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers.

Tankovic only made his first-team debut for the west London club in their FA Cup third-round replay with Norwich City at Craven Cottage earlier this month.

However, the player had previously be shining for the top-flight strugglers in their Under-21 Premier League campaign, where Tankovic had managed to register an impressive eight goals and one assist in total in his 112 encounters for his club.

What are the chances of it happening? 6/10 for me.

Arsenal Set to Bid for £24m Rated La Liga Winger!!!

Arsenal are readying a fresh bid for highly rated Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been given a boost in the pursuit of the 22 year old French forward after Griezmann admitted he could leave his La Liga club in order to assist his push for a first call-up to the senior national team set-up.

“I am relaxed about my future at the moment,” he told radio station RMC .

“I have not had talks other clubs yet. This is something to look at.

“I want to play for a leading European team and I hope this can help me get a place in the France team.”

Arsenal failed with a £12m bid for Griezmann and have been told to fork out twice that amount if they want to land the talented wide-man, a bid that Wenger may be more likely to consider now that Theo Walcott has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Griezmann is into his fifth season at Basque side Real Sociedad and has been in marvelous form, scoring 12 goals in 17 La Liga fixtures this term, a strike rate that is phenomenal for any player not plying their trade for one of Spain’s giants Barcelona or Real Madrid.

What are the chances of it happening? 7/10 for me.

Nani may leave to Sporting Lisborn (Loan transfer)

Manchester United’s skillful winger Nani has shown signs of brilliance in his time at the club but has never really reached his full potential.

Reports in Portugal suggest that negotiations are ongoing between Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon regarding a loan agreement for Nani. It is understood that United are willing to sanction a deal if they are offered first refusal on Sporting’s in-demand midfielder William Carvalho at the end of the season.

Nani had fell out of favor with his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson last season, however David Moyes decided to renew his contract earlier this season. Nevertheless the Portuguese winger has still not got many games under his belt due to not being selected and because of a hamstring problem. Moyes may look to send him on loan in this transfer window. This may perhaps give more playing time to the likes of Wilfried Zaha who has yet to also get regular football at the club this season.

Will we see Nani back at his former club this season? Only time will tell!
