The turn of the year signifies the start of another transfer window and as always, there will be plenty of clubs looking to do business during January.
Whether it be relegation candidates who need more players to boost their fight for survival or sides at the top of the table, there will be plenty of comings and goings, and here is our look at the latest transfer odds.
Ozil in line for MLS move?
Mesut Ozil has experienced a real fall from grace at Arsenal. Bought for £42 million in 2013 from Real Madrid, Ozil signed a new contract at the club three years ago, yet now finds himself deemed surplus to requirements at the Emirates by Mikel Arteta.
Whether it is Ozil’s inability to fit into Arteta’s system or his reported wages that has worked against him, is not yet known for sure, but the German seems destined to leave the Gunners this summer at the latest when his deal expires.
Arsenal may hope they can offload him before that this month, however, with a move to the US for Ozil having been touted. The midfielder is 4/1 to sign for an MLS club before the end of the window, while he is also 4/1 to move to long-time admirers Fenerbahce. A move to a Chinese Super League club, meanwhile, is 8/1.
Pep and Messi to link up again?
The move that really would shake the football world. It’s no secret that Lionel Messi isn’t as happy as he was at Barcelona with the Spanish giants struggling in La Liga, and you feel if he’s ever going to move on this season is the time that will happen with his contract due to expire this summer.
The Argentinian enjoyed some of the best days of his career under Pep Guardiola and a reunion at Manchester City could be in the offing. Few clubs are able to afford Messi, but Manchester City certainly could, and the 33-year-old is 2/1 to make the move to the Eithad during the current transfer window.
Could Eriksen be on the move again?
To say Christian Eriksen’s move to Inter Milan has been a disappointment would be a massive understatement. In the 38 games he’s played for the Italian club, he’s scored just four times and he looks set for a move away already.
PSG might be busy this month as they are just 4/6 to sign the Danish midfielder in January as they look to build a side that is capable of getting them back to the top of the Ligue 1 table in France as well as challenging for the Champions League.
Interestingly, Eriksen’s former north London rivals Arsenal are next in the betting to sign him at 8/1, while Real Madrid and Manchester United are 12/1 to bring him to the Bernabéu and Old Trafford respectively.
