January transfer window: Guide to Big Six Premier League clubs

The January transfer window has opened, and it is important to know what the top Premier League clubs have planned in terms of transfers.

While some managers have already announced that they are happy with the squad they have, some have set clear targets for the transfer window.

Here's a guide to the top EPL clubs and their requirements.

Manchester United

What do the Red Devils need to solidify their team?

What do the Red Devils need to solidify their team?

The biggest question about Manchester United's transfer targets is whether Solskjaer will get a solid center back to strengthen United's shaky defense.

Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, and Kalidou Koulibaly are among the central defenders being targeted by United.

However, considering their position in the league and their Champions League chances, United might have difficulty in attracting world-class talent.

Manchester City

Are the Cityzens looking for new recruitment?

City have said that they are not really looking forward to making any additions to their squad, but given the fact that Fernandinho is their only defensive midfielder, Guardiola just might want to add a backup option.

Fernandinho is 33, and someone young like Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele might work for City, with his price tag being an affordable £55 million.

Tottenham Hotspur

A new stadium burned a deep hole in Spurs' pockets

A new stadium burned a deep hole in Spurs' pockets

When recently asked about his plans for the January transfer window, Mauricio Pochettino turned his pocket inside out.

Having spent a massive £1 billion on their new stadium, Tottenham simply do not have the cash for any noteworthy transfers.

If they really want to make any new signings, Spurs will have to shell out one member of their squad for the cash.

Chelsea

The Blues have set certain clear goals

Chelsea reportedly have gone quite ahead with their plan to sign Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic.

They have also, according to reports, shown an interest in bringing in Gonzalo Higuain into their fold, and have contacted AC Milan and Juventus for the same. Morata could go to San Siro in an exchange deal.

Victor Moses, Gary Cahill, and Danny Drinkwater will likely be sold.

Liverpool

Who would not want to join the current Liverpool squad?

Who would not want to join the current Liverpool squad?

Earlier, Liverpool were the ones who were linked with Pulisic, but Chelsea have clearly made a concrete offer for the player.

Klopp did mention that unless push comes to shove, he will most likely not be making any changes to the current squad.

Considering the form the entire unit is in at this point, further additions do seem unnecessary.

Arsenal

Will Emery need some extra firepower this term?

Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck are recovering from long-term injuries, and thus Emery will likely want to strengthen his squad by adding a defender and a striker to the mix.

Moreover, Aaron Ramsay will be leaving for Juventus, and Ozil is suffering from a knee injury.

Thus, buying a new midfielder will also be on the agenda for Emery in the January transfer window.
