Sunderland: Potential January transfer targets

Victor Moses
A constant ray of light in Wigan's disastrous season, Victor Moses may, according to the Metro, be heading out of the DW Stadium, with the Black Cats being one of the teams vying for the attacking winger's signature. A bid of £8m could be enough to prise one of Roberto Martinez's prize assets out of Wigan's clutches.
Niko Kranjcar
After erupting onto the Premier League scene, first with Portsmouth and now with Tottenham, the Croatian attacking midfielder has fallen out-of-favour at White Hart Lane, only starting four league games this term. A move to Sunderland would allow him to garner first-team football before Euro 2012.
Ola Toivonen
Despite being heavily linked with a move to Liverpool during Roy Hodgson's ill-fated reign, PSV Eindhoven's Swedish hitman remained in the Netherlands. With Sunderland having been starved of options up front this season, talkSport reports that O'Neill is toying with the idea of recruiting the prolific Toivonen.

Sunderland's decision to do away with Steve Bruce and replace him with Martin O'Neill has already reaped rewards with results on the pitch.

But the Northern Irishman will want to put his own stamp on the Black Cats and will surely look to bring in a couple of players during the window.



Here, we take a look at some of the players being linked with a switch to the Stadium of Light.
