Read Time1 Minute, 51 Seconds

It’s January and yet again the transfer window opens for clubs to sign new players. 

Several players in Europe are on the list of possible moves, away from their respective clubs – even to another league entirely.

Paul Pogba tops the list of those on the speculated big-money moves.

The French International has a limited appearances for his Manchester United club this season owing to an ankle injury but United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has declared the midfielder “will not be sold”.

However, BBC reports that the 26 years old Manchester United midfielder is linked with a move to Spain or Italy with either Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus as possible destination. He is valued at £85m.

Another player that maybe leaving his club this January is Tottenham’s midfielder, Christian Eriksen.

The 27 years old valued at £51.4m is linked with a move to either Real Madrid or Manchester United.

According to the BBC, Eriksen failed to secure a move away from Spurs in the summer and Carteret say his performances have dropped by 38.5% this season, leading to a drop in his value of £32.22m. When asked about Eriksen future, Tottenham new manager Jose Mourinho said: “I know his future.”

His contract at Spurs ends in the summer and he has shown no inclination to sign a new deal, meaning chairman Daniel Levy may look to recoup some money in January should a decent offer come in.

Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud is linked with a move to Inter Milan or Atletico Madrid.

The 33 years old has fallen out of favour at Chelsea under Frank Lampard, mainly because of the prolific form of England international Tammy Abraham, while Michy Batshuayi is also ahead of him in the pecking order.

The former Arsenal striker’s contract at Stamford Bridge ends in the summer. With almost 80 goals during his Premier League career, he will be an excellent addition for a club lacking a regular scorer.

Uruguay international and Arsenal midfielder, Lucas Torreira has become unsettled in north London this term, fuelling reports of an impending exit.

The combative midfielder joined from Sampdoria and may well head back to Serie A, with his agent saying earlier in the season: “We will see what happens.” Possible destination is Napoli.
