There is less than four weeks left for Premier League clubs to get ready for what promises to be an exciting month of moves when the January transfer market starts. Many records were broken in terms of spending during the summer, and January looks to be another crazy month.
Tottenham is looking for depth to help their bid for Champions League football, while Manchester United and Chelsea are eager to add players to their rosters at both ends of the field after lackluster seasons.
With the title battle wide open right now and the addition of new players likely to make a difference in the later parts of the season, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool are also anticipated to splurge the cash.
City and Liverpool start an expensive bidding war
Florian Wirtz of Bayer Leverkusen is expected to face off against Manchester City and Liverpool, according to 90min.com.
It seems unlikely that the Germany international will make a move during the January transfer window, but a move this summer or in 2025 shouldn’t be completely discounted.
Bayern Munich is trying to establish themselves as the front-runners to recruit the midfield player, but City and Liverpool, who “aren’t prepared to throw in the towel,” will compete with them in the Premier League.
Two clubs join the race for Bayern Munich top target
Joao Palhinha, a star player for Fulham, is reportedly being pursued by two Premier League teams.
The Portuguese midfielder was about to sign a contract with Bayern Munich during the summer, but the agreement fell through on deadline day. The German team plans to rekindle their interest in him in January.
The Telegraph claims, however, that Palhinha is being pursued by at least two English teams, who will compete with Bayern for the 28-year-old’s contract.

Jadon Sancho is supposedly falling down Juventus’ list of priorities, which is a serious setback for Manchester United in their attempt to offload the winger during the January transfer window.
Calcio Mercato reports that Juve has designated Domenico Berardi, the captain of Sassuolo, their top target for January. When the transfer market opens, they could expect to put a lot of pressure on the Italy international.
Because of this, Sancho is seen as a potential replacement for Berardi, and the Old Lady is insistent that they will only go after him on a loan agreement.
