But what needs to be strengthened by each of the 20 Premier League clubs? What kind of player or players do they need?

Below we take a look at the Premier League transfers that should be a priority for every club in January.

Premier League transfer requirements for January

Arsenal – striker/winger

They tried to sign Mikhail Mudrik but didn’t cross the line, which helped to alternate attack options. Now they are moving on to other goals and Leandro Trossar looks like a more achievable option. Otherwise, they don’t need anything.

Aston Villa – left back and striker

They have signed left-back Alex Moreno from Real Betis and he adds real attacking qualities on that flank. Unai Emery also added young center forward John Duran from the Chicago Fire.

Bournemouth – everywhere

With new owners already in, Bournemouth needs to step up if they’re going to stay. Defensively, they need more quality. And everywhere. Lorient winger Dango Ouattara looks set to join the team.

Brentford — Winger

Their team was actually big enough to handle a few key defensive injuries really well. They have signed Kevin Shade, who will add additional offensive options.

Brighton & Hove Albion – Forward

They always have a striker, don’t they? The Seagulls are one scoring forward away from seriously challenging the top six. Will they spend big money to get this player? Probably not this month.

Chelsea – striker/attacking midfielder

They keep buying players, but is this the right type of player? With the arrival of new owners, no one can agree with their messy transfer policy. Graham Potter took Joao Felix on loan, they also signed Mudrik. Perhaps Marcus Thuram is the right choice for the new centre-forward?

Crystal Palace – Striker

Not quite sure where the Palace can fortify. Maybe adding an attacker will help them become more clinical? Again, this has been their main goal for about eight years now.

Everton – striker

They can’t afford to wait for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to get back in shape. They just can’t. Frank Lampard needs a poacher or Everton will again face a very serious relegation battle.

Fulham – Nobody

Summer residents might need some extra cover in the rear areas, but Marco Silva’s team looks very solid.

Leeds United – striker and centre-back

They have already signed Max Wober from RB Salzburg and the Austrian should help them bolster their defence. Jesse Marsh also added striker Georginio Rutter from Hoffenheim. Needs are met.

Leicester City – central defender and goalkeeper

This season they are really having problems with the defense, and they especially need reinforcements in the center of the defense. Maybe a new goalkeeper?

Liverpool – central midfielder

They added Cody Gakpo to the dodgy business, but it was a luxury purchase. Jurgen Klopp needs a more reliable box-to-box midfielder as too many of his team in the area suffer from permanent injuries. Théun Koopmeiners was tied up.

Manchester City – Nobody

Their unit is complex and absolutely ridiculous. Guardiola has already said that January will be calm.

Manchester United – striker

They signed Wout Weghorst on loan as a really good temporary solution. In the long run, they will focus on Harry Kane or Victor Osimhen. Right now, Eric ten Hag really needed an additional center forward who can change and leave the squad.

Newcastle United – Nobody

Another team that has a close-knit roster and while Eddie Howe would probably like to add another winger, he really doesn’t need it. Bruno Guimares is injured so maybe they need some extra cover.

Nottingham Forest – midfielder

Nottingham Forest have so many players who are still reeling from last summer’s incredible spending but lack the ability to hold onto midfield.

Southampton – striker, attacking midfielder, central defender.

Nathan Jones has a hell of a job supporting the Saints, but they have already signed Croatian winger Mislav Orsic and Argentine midfielder Carlos Alcaraz. After signing so many talented youngsters over the summer, they need more experience and another striker and centre-back will give them a chance to stay up. It’s going to be a busy month in St. Mary’s.

Tottenham Hotspur – winger/fullback and centre-back

With attacking players injured and their full-backs having tough campaigns, Antonio Conte will need additional opportunities on the flanks. Leandro Trossar is a player that makes sense to buy this month and he will fight in minutes and improve his squad. The Spurs also need a new centre-back, but it’s more like a summer signing.

West Ham United – Nobody

They are clearly struggling, but their line-up is quite complex and they spent a lot of money over the summer. David Moyes will have no problem with the quality of the squad, but he needs to figure out how to get the best out of them as a team.

Wolverhampton Wanderers – striker and centre-back

They have already signed Matheus Cunha on loan, which looks like a really good addition, and they have contacted experienced centre-back Craig Dawson to help them solidify the position. Julen Lopetegui needs more quality in the future.

Crystal Palace will host Manchester United on Wednesday at Selhurst Park as the Eagles look to upset the red-hot Red Devils.


Patrick Vieira’s Palace fought hard for their minor loss to Chelsea last time and after a poor performance (only one win in their last seven matches in all competitions) they are looking back a little nervously at the Premier League relegation battle. They should be fine, and Selhurst will be happy about that.

Manchester United and Erik ten Hag are heading in the exact opposite direction after beating Manchester City (somewhat controversially) at the weekend, and now they’re heading into an unlikely title challenge. It might be a little premature, but despite winning nine games in a row in all competitions, United are up to the mark and a win over Palace would move them to second in the table momentarily.

Key storylines and fit players to watch

In recent weeks, Palace have looked a little lethargic offensively as they have lost four of their last five games and failed to score in all four of those defeats. Patrick Vieira has all the offensive options available and it just doesn’t seem like he’s getting the right players together. Palace need a big win to start the season as teams below them start to pick up victories and the Eagles no longer feel comfortable in the middle of the table. Vicente Guaita was superb against Chelsea and Wilfried Zaha needs to regain his brilliant form at the start of the season.

United are on the rise and Marcus Rashford is the man of the moment. He has scored seven goals in his last six games and has been on a roll since returning from the World Cup. Casemiro dominates midfield, Bruno Fernandes dictates the game and Luke Shaw is a revelation as a left centre-back. This is the best United have seen in a long time and Erik ten Hag knows they still have a lot of room for improvement. This is the sweetest thing for United when it comes to this long winning streak. They didn’t make it to the top…
