What Every Clubs In Premier League Need To Do Before January Transfer Window Closes ( deep analysis)

The January transfer window is entering its final week and managers are scrambling with their chairman to get those final deals over the line.

Some managers need fresh faces to stave off the threat of relegation, and for others it is a case of finding a diamond in the rough to help achieve a European finish.

Sportsmail looks at what each club needs, who could be moved on and who they are targeting in the final seven days of the 2020 winter window.

ARSENAL
What they need: Centre back, left-back, midfielder

Who do they like: Upamecano (RB Leipzig), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Glen Kamara (Rangers), Rabiot (Juventus), Matviyenko (Shakhtar), Kurzawa (PSG), Soumare (Lille), Dakonam (Getafe), Bruno Guimaraes (Paranaense)

Who could go: No one

Who’s arrived: No one

Who’s left: Smith Rowe (Huddersfield Town, loan), Mavropanos (Nuremburg, loan), Ben Sheaf (Doncaster Rovers, loan), John-Jules (Lincoln City, loan), Iliev (Jagiellonia Bialystok, loan)

Budget: £30m

Mikel Arteta has only just got his feet under the table at the Emirates Stadium but will still be keen to make his own imprint on the squad following a tough few weeks in the hotseat.

Shoring up a shaky back-line will be a priority in the final seven days, with Layvin Kurzawa and Djene Dakonam being mooted as likely options.

CHELSEA
What they need: Full-back, centre-back, centre forward, winger

Who do they like: Werner (RB Leipzig), Moussa Dembele (Lyon), Zaha (Crystal Palace), Richarlison (Everton), Sancho (Dortmund), Ben White (Brighton), Ake (Bournemouth), Kenny (Everton), Cavani (PSG), Telles (Porto), Soumare (Lille), Ruiz-Atil (PSG)

Who could go: Giroud, Batshuayi, Emerson, Alonso, Pedro, Barkley

Who’s arrived: No one

Who’s left: Drinkwater (Aston Villa, loan), Guehi (Swansea, loan), Gallagher (Swansea, loan), Moses (Inter, loan), Blackman (Bristol Rovers, loan)

Budget: £125m

With Chelsea no longer under a transfer ban, everyone thought Frank Lampard would get stuck into the transfer market this month.

However, it’s been quiet at Stamford Bridge until now, with five players leaving the club and no new arrivals.

Tammy Abraham hobbled off in the draw with Arsenal on Wednesday, which is likely to accelerate Lampard’s search for a striker. Edinson Cavani is the one he wants.

LIVERPOOL
What they need: Left-back, midfield, forward

Who do they like: Ben White (Brighton), Ferran Torres (Valencia), Bellingham (Birmingham), McCallum (Coventry), Max Clark (Vitesse), Soumare (Lille), Tonali (Brescia), Havertz (Leverkusen)

Who could go: Curtis Jones, Kelleher (on loan)

Who’s arrived: Minamino (Salzburg, £7.3m)

Who’s left: Brewster (Swansea, loan), Herbie Kane (Hull City, loan), Nathaniel Phillips (Stuttgart, loan), Christie-Davies (Cercle Brugge, loan), Allan Rodrigues (Mineiro, undisclosed), Atherton (Marine, loan)

Budget: £50m – but they are likely to save it until the summer

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was quick out of the blocks when it was announced the club had agreed a deal with Red Bull Salzburg for Takumi Minamino at the start of the window.

However, don’t expect the Reds to be too active in the final week of January. They could well save their funds for the summer window.

MANCHESTER CITY
What they need: Centre-backs, winger

Who do they like: Ake (Bournemouth), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Matviyenko (Shakhtar), Florentino Luis (Benfica), Larios (Barcelona), Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad), Chukwueze (Villarreal), Pantovic (Red Star), Ihatarren (PSV), Bastoni (Inter)

Who could go: Sane, Otamendi, Cancelo, Stones

Who’s arrived: Liam Smith (Kilmarnock, £200,000)

Who’s left: Patrick Roberts (Middlesbrough, loan), Nmecha (Middlesbrough, loan)

Budget: £50m

Pep Guardiola’s men have dropped 16 points behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race, all but confirming that they’ll have to concede the trophy in May. However, the former Barcelona boss may seek new faces to boost their Champions League challenge.

Even with Aymeric Laporte returning from injury, centre defence has proven a major weakness for City in this campaign and new additions at the back are the priority.

MANCHESTER UNITED
What they need: Two midfielders, striker

Who do they like: Cavani (PSG), Bruno Fernandes (Sporting), Edouard (Celtic), Emre Can (Juventus), Paredes (PSG), Rice (West Ham), Bellingham (Birmingham), Soumare (Lille), Sean Longstaff (Newcastle), Saul (Atletico), Sancho (Dortmund), Grealish (Aston Villa), Maddison (Leicester), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Diop (West Ham), Rabiot (Juventus), Vidal (Barcelona), Vecino (Inter), Van de Beek (Ajax), Tonali (Brescia), Piatek (Milan)

Who could go: Rojo, Angel Gomes, Garner (loan), Chong (loan), Borthwick-Jackson

Who’s arrived: No one

Who’s left: Young (Inter, £1.5m), Hamilton (Bolton, loan), Fojticek (Stalybridge Celtic, loan), Max Taylor (Stalybridge Celtic, loan)

Budget: £100m

With the race for the top four so finely balanced, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be desperate to bring in some reinforcements before the end of the January window.

Bruno Fernandes has been a long-term midfield target, although the deal now appears to be off.

Having missed out on Erling Haaland and with Marcus Rashford set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines, United are still on the hunt for a new striker.

TOTTENHAM
What they need: Full-back, centre back, striker

Who do they like: Ben White (Brighton), Kenny (Everton), Pereira (Leicester), Nathan Ferguson (WBA), Celik (Lille), Leon King (Rangers), Cyprien (Nice), Cavani (PSG), Soumare (Lille), Lemar (Atletico), Zaha (Crystal Palace), Umtiti (Barcelona), Semedo (Barcelona), Piatek (Milan), Aarons (Norwich), Ze Luis (Porto), Slimani (Leicester), Willian Jose (Real Sociedad)

Who could go: Eriksen, Wanyama, Rose, Vertonghen, Foyth, Kazaiah Sterling (loan), Walker-Peters

Who’s arrived: Gedson Fernandes (Benfica, loan)

Who’s left: Jack Clarke (QPR, loan), Maghoma (Brentford, undisclosed)

Budget: £60m – but are likely to save it until the summer

Jose Mourinho could not have been more complimentary of Tottenham’s squad when he arrived, but the Portuguese’s hand may have been forced after Harry Kane was ruled out for four months with a hamstring injury.

Porto’s Ze Luis and Willian Jose of Real Sociedad are among their options up-front, while full-back remains a desperate area for investment at Spurs.

ASTON VILLA
Who do they like: Josh Maja (Bordeaux), Benrahma (Brentford), Glen Kamara (Rangers), Tavernier (Middlesbrough), Elabdellaoui (Olympiacos), McCallum (Coventry), Giroud (Chelsea), Guirassy (Amiens), Slimani (Leicester), Benteke (Crystal Palace)
