The January transfer window is inching towards its conclusion, and some Premier League sides are still looking to get deals done.
Traditionally, the winter window is a quiet one, and as expected, most of the major sides have stayed away from signing new names.
However, some clubs have been active, and they have made some significant signings this month. We take a look at the five best new signings in the Premier League window.
Gonzalo Higuain – AC Milan to Chelsea
Chelsea has signed the Argentinean striker on a loan deal for the rest of the season. This deal may not be a permanent, but it could prove to be the essential January deal this season. The Blues have been missing a striker this season, and Maurizio Sarri is hopeful that the former Napoli striker could help Chelsea secure a top-four spot.
Dominic Solanke – Liverpool to Bournemouth
Bournemouth has taken a massive risk by splashing £19m on the English youngster. Solanke had joined the Reds from Chelsea for £3 million in the summer of 2017, and they have made a nice bit of profit from his sale. The 21-year-old won the Golden Boot in the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup success for the Young Lions. He didn’t get an opportunity at Chelsea and Liverpool, but he would hope to get more playing time with the Cherries.
Ryan Babel – Besiktas to Fulham
The Dutch veteran has returned for a second stint in Premier League. Babel has joined the Cottagers in a loan deal from the Turkish club. The London side is currently involved in the relegation scrap, and undoubtedly, Babel would be desperate to make an impression.
Samir Nasri – free agent to West Ham
Nasri is another player like Babel attempting another go at Premier League. The French midfielder is aiming to resurrect his football career following a drug ban. He has previously played for Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, and at 31 years of age, he can prove to be a shrewd signing for the Hammers.
Christian Pulisic – Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea
The American is the most expensive signing in Premier League this January so far. The West London side has agreed to pay £58m for the talented attacking midfielder. However, the 20-year-old won’t be able to make an immediate impact in England as Dortmund have reacquired his services on a loan deal for the rest of the season.
