January 2023 Transfers & News

After a month where 64 senior players have been added to Premier League squads in January, the transfer window has now closed. But which club have emerged strongest as a result?

Chelsea made the most senior signings, with eight players brought in to boost their hopes of a return to a top-four place. Will head coach Graham Potter be able to integrate successfully these players into a squad that has disappointed so far this season?

Liverpool, another traditional top-four club who have fallen out of this elite group this season, have brought in only Cody Gakpo to add to their attack.   

Relegation-fighting Everton were the only club not to make a senior signing during January as new boss Sean Dyche gets his feet under the table at Goodison. By contrast two promoted sides, Nottingham Forest and AFC Bournemouth, signed six players each in January to aid their hopes of a second successive Premier League season. And bottom-of-the-table Southampton signed five players, as did Wolverhampton Wanderers, in 17th.  

At the other end of the table, leaders Arsenal bolstered their squad with the additions of Leandro Trossard, Jakub Kiwior and Jorginho, while their nearest rivals Manchester City sold their experienced defender Joao Cancelo, while only recruiting a South American prospect in Maximo Perrone. Will this business help to determine the title race?
