There were a lot of intriguing developments in the just concluded January transfer window. English clubs, as is their wont, dominated the proceedings, splurging more than €884 million on 52 permanent transfers. Also, there have been various big-ticket loan transfers, which could turn out to be extremely critical for the clubs’ prospects. So, let us take a look at some of the significant transfers involving English clubs.
Jorginho From Chelsea To Arsenal
When Arsenal knew some of their plans are not working out the Gunners’ focus immediately shifted to Chelsea and brought on board Jorginho for a mere €11.3 million fee. He has inked a deal of a one-and-a-half-year with Arsenal. Jorginho, who was instrumental in Chelsea lifting UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Champions League, has all the qualities to bridge the gap in Arsenal’s midfield. With him around, Mikel Arteta could also indulge in some experiments in the line-up.
Keylor Navas On Loan To Nottingham Forest
After languishing on the sidelines of the PSG for a while, Navas was itching for a move elsewhere. And he will be glad that his prayers were finally been answered as he will be looking to play more active roles with Nottingham Forest in the remaining 2022-23 campaign. At 36, he is not getting any younger but his vast experience over the years could prove to be very handy for Nottingham, especially the fruitful years with Real Madrid.
Joao Cancelo On Loan From Man City To Bayern Munich
His move to Bayern was indeed very surprising for all. His loan agreement also comprises a € 70 million purchase clause, however, it is not binding. His departure from City is being attributed to his strained relations with Pep Guardiola and his staff. Cancelo is undoubtedly one of the finest fullbacks in the present times and Bayern Munich could be able to utilise him on either side of the defence. If Bayern Munich can manage to accommodate Cancelo in their set up then it could prove to be a game-changing scenario for them.
