Five possible moves before the transfer deadline

The January transfer window closes for Barclays Premier League clubs at 11pm on Monday.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at some of the deals which may or may not come off before the deadline.


The Brazilian attacking midfielder has been the biggest target in this window but Shakhtar Donetsk's asking price of £53million for the 26-year-old may prove too costly. Possible destination: Liverpool, Chelsea.


Has struggled to get into the Chelsea first team under Guus Hiddink and is desperate to get playing time ahead of Euro 2016. Hiddink insists the 30-year-ols defender is staying but if enough money comes in Chelsea may sell. Possible destination: Liverpool.


Has had a hugely disappointing move to Arsenal and is another player with an eye on the Euros. The French full-back has already proved a success in the Premier League with Newcastle. Possible destination: Aston Villa, Sunderland.


Could this be the time the England Under-21 international finally gets his wish and a big-money move. He has been valued at £25million by West Brom - but has not had much playing time this season. Possible destination: Tottenham.


The midfielder handed in a transfer request at Southampton earlier in the season to try and force a move. Saints, however, held their nerve and it would take a huge offer to prise him away. Possible destination: Tottenham, Arsenal.
