Transfer Market Who will be on the move?
January 1 and the opening of the winter transfer window is fast approaching.
As is the case every year, there are a number of names who have already been linked with moves and the market’s opening will see some of those start to fall into place.
We’ve looked at 11 names who could shake things up once 2020 arrives.
The Danish star’s Tottenham contract ends in June and he’s not looking to renew, not even after Jose Mourinho‘s arrival in North London.
He’s hoping to get a move to Real Madrid, whether it’s in January or on a free next summer.
The Swede’s future is a mystery and has been since he left LA Galaxy in November.
Ibrahimovic himself has said he’ll return to Italy, but talks with AC Milan haven’t quite gone as smoothly as expected, opening the door to a move to join Carlo Ancelotti at Everton.
He’s been a revelation in Europe this season with Red Bull Salzburg and all signs point towards him leaving in January.
Manchester United, Juventus, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund all want him.
The Uruguayan is another whose contract ends in June, but he could be sold in the winter as Mauro Icardi has settled at Paris Saint-Germain.
He’s believed to have agreed terms with Atletico Madrid, but now the clubs need to reach an agreement.
The Real Madrid forward opted to stay put last summer, hoping to fight for his place.
But he hasn’t played a minute in LaLiga Santander this season, making him the only fit player to be in that situation.
Roma are the most interested.
He’s in a similar situation at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
He decided not to leave on loan in the summer, but now he has just four appearances under his belt in 2019/20.
He seems more likely to leave on loan now and various clubs have enquired about him.
The Chilean is wanted in Italy, particularly by Antonio Conte at Inter as he keeps struggling to start at Barcelona.
Ernesto Valverde spoke in the summer about there being an excess of midfielders at the club and Alena has suffered.
Both Real Betis and Getafe are keen on bringing him in on loan.
Despite not having a lot of time on the pitch this season, Barcelona are open to loaning him out and there is interest.
Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan are two of the clubs considering moves.
He’s struggled with Atletico this season and Diego Simeone‘s patience is running thin.
In order for them to sign, they need to sell, and Lemar is the one chosen to move on.
His move to Benfica hasn’t gone as planned and he’s having something of a disaster in Portugal.
They spent 20 million euros to sign him in the summer, but now he could return to Spain with Espanyol interested.
