With just days remaining of the January transfer window and not many moves being completed yet, we’ve looked at the biggest deals which could still yet be completed before the deadline.
Most clubs are saving their business for the end of the season but some out-of-favour stars are pushing to leave now, and they could get their ways if replacements are found.
Here are some of the biggest names to keep an eye out for …

Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur) to PSG
Dele Alli is one of the biggest names looking for a new club this month, with Jose Mourinho having made it abundantly clear he is surplus to requirements at Tottenham Hotspur after being left out of several matchday squads this season, including the most recent away to Sheffield United.
Alli has a contract at Spurs until 2024 but is in desperate search of a new club in order to seal an England spot for the upcoming European Championships and PSG, now managed by former boss Mauricio Pochettino, is his first choice destination.
Pochettino is interested in him and wants to bring him over to Paris, albeit on a loan deal until the end of the season.
Spurs’ official stance is that they want Alli to stay for the remainder of the current campaign and fight for his place, but with the days until the deadline creeping down, there could finally be some progress before the window slams shut.

Jesse Lingard (Manchester United) to West Ham United
Like Alli, Jesse Lingard has fallen completely out of favour at Manchester United with Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Daniel James and Juan Mata now all ahead of him in the pecking order.
He has yet to play in a Premier League game all season and has only made fleeting appearance in the League Cup and the FA Cup.
West Ham have reportedly made an approach with a view to signing him on loan until the end of the season, although United would prefer a permanent transfer having triggered a one-year contract extension in order to get some more value out of him rather than allowing him to leave on a free.

West Ham already have two domestic loan signings in the squad, meaning one would need to be made permanent or cancelled in order for Lingard to move under Premier League rules.
West Brom, Sheffield United and Nice have all previously expressed desire to sign Lingard on loan but so far nothing has materialised.
Martin Odegaard (Real Madrid) to Arsenal
Arsenal have reportedly agreed a deal to sign young Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard on loan until the end of the season after the 22-year-old made it clear he wanted to leave to pursue first-team football.
After impressing at Real Sociedad last term, Madrid wanted him back in their squad but he has made just nine appearances and was in talks to return to the LaLiga side before the Gunners made their interest know.
Arsenal already have Dani Ceballos on loan from Real and the club are happy to see another prospect go to the Emirates for more first-team football.
Odegaard was one of the most-wanted players in the world when he was 16 and there will be a lot of expectation around him now he is playing in the Premier League.
The deal is expected to be announced in the coming days.
Christian Eriksen (Inter Milan) to Leicester City or Tottenham
Christian Eriksen’s move to Inter Milan this time last year from Spurs has not gone well and he is looking for a transfer again, with two Premier League clubs competing to sign him on reduced terms.
Both Spurs and Leicester have reportedly been in contact, with Tottenham Eriksen’s preference, although the Dane would be open to a loan move under the right circumstances.
Inter would want any loan deal to include a fee and most if not all of his wages paid for which has so far priced out a number of clubs, including Leicester.
They are happy for him to leave in the hope that he impressed and puts himself back in the shop window and raise his own price for the inevitable scramble for his signature at the end of the season.
Antonio Conte’s current tactics at Inter don’t suit having a playmaker that doesn’t defend and although he wants Eriksen to show resilience and fight for his place, the club are happy to let him go.
Eric Garcia (Manchester City) to Barcelona
Pep Guardiola has repeatedly insisted that there will be no additions to the Manchester City squad during the January window, but there could be a big-name departure in Eric Garcia.
The 20-year-old is in the final year of his deal at the Etihad and has pushed for a move back home to Spain with boyhood club Barcelona.
He is eligible to speak to other clubs now he has entered the final six months of his deal, but cannot leave for free until July 1.
Now reports have emerged that Barcelona could make a move even earlier and pay a small fee to get him now, having failed with a deadline day bid for him last year.
Asked if that might happen, City boss Guardiola said: “I hope not but maybe the people from Barcelona know more than me. I don’t know what is going to happen but maybe it is going to happen.”
