Seven SHOCK transfers which could happen in January!

first_imgAs we edge closer to the January transfer window we’re seeing more rumours coming out.Some of these reports are fairly believable but other are likely to leave your jaw on the floor should they go through at the start of 2016.One surprising move has already gone through with Manchester City signing Australian free agent Luke Bratton, who was recently released Brisbane Roar.Several other Premier League sides could look to reignite their title bids with big transfer moves for star players.But who are the men who could make these switches? talkSPORT takes a look.Click the right arrow above to find out which shock transfer could go through in January… 7 Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain to Chelsea) – Spanish website Fichajes is reporting Cavani could be set to end his association with the Parisians as he once again finds himself play out wide. Being unable to oust Zlatan Ibrahimovic from a central role appears to have frustrated him and he’ll consider a switch. Arsenal want the player but it seems the Uruguay international may prefer a move to Chelsea with the player being valued at £32m. Eden Hazard (Chelsea to Paris Saint-Germain) – Hazard is finding it hard to live up to his usual high standards this season and is yet to score, while only delivering two assists. Despite that he’s still a wanted man, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain interested. A €100m bid is being mulled over by the latter side according to a Belgian newspaper. 7 Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich to Liverpool) – With Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at Anfield it was only a matter of time before he was linked with signing some former charges. Marco Reus, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ilkay Gundogan have all be mentioned but the real shock reports were ones which suggested he could attempt to lure Lewandowski to Merseyside. Valued at £35m (just £2.5m more than Christian Benteke), he might actually be affordable, but are Bayern Munich mad enough to sell him? Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid to Manchester United) – Just below La Liga’s shining lights Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo sit several other quality stars, including French star Griezmann. The Atletico Madrid man has been terrorising defences in Spain for two seasons now and has 26 goals in 46 appearances. Manchester United are reportedly stepping up their interest as Louis van Gaal looks to improve his faltering frontline, with the Red Devils contacting the player’s representatives. The 24-year-old would cost around £40m. 7 7 7 7 Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli to Arsenal) – Arsenal’s Karim Benzema chase was ended when the man himself denied he was heading for the Real Madrid exit, leaving the Gunners to move their striker search elsewhere. Higuain has been previously linked with the club on several occasions but now could be looked at more intensely. His current release clause is £67.7m, which might be a tad too expensive, but can Arsene Wenger really risk losing another big-name striker, especially one who has hit seven goals in nine Serie A appearances. 7 Dele Alli (Tottenham to Paris Saint-Germain) – Even though many tipped the starlet for success at Spurs, it’s hard to believe the impact the 19-year-old has had at White Hart Lane. Alli has already got his first Premier League goal and his skilful box-to-box display have got Tottenham fans excited. According to L’Equipe, PSG’s sporting director Olivier Letang watched the England international in action as Mauricio Pochettino’s side took on Anderlecht in the Europa League. Jamie Vardy (Leicester City to Real Madrid) – Reports in Spain have, quite amazingly linked ex-Fleetwood Town striker Vardy with an astonishing move to La Liga giants Real. Rafael Benitez seems keen to provide Karim Benzema with some competition and the 10-goal hitman is drawing his attention. Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri, though, told reporters the Spanish side would have to spend a lot of money to get their man.last_img
