Wout Weghorst in action for the Netherlands

The January transfer window has entered its second week and there could be some big transfers that take place that could impact several clubs.

There have already been a few transfers in this window but the business isn’t done for many sides, with negotiations still ongoing for various players.

So, which transfers could take place this week?

Mykhaylo Mudryk

The transfer saga surrounding Mykhaylo Mudryk has been raging on for a while with Arsenal and Chelsea keen on signing the Shakhtar Donetsk player.

Arsenal even saw a bid for the winger rejected with Shakhtar looking for a fee of around €100 million for their star man in the winter.

Chelsea have also been monitoring the situation and are open to making an offer for him in January in a bid to get him away from their London rivals.

Enzo Fernandez

Chelsea have been keen on signing Enzo Fernandez having been impressed by his World Cup displays, where he was named the tournament’s best young player.

Benfica have insisted they want only the player’s release clause of €120 million which Chelsea were seemingly willing to pay, but that deal hasn’t happened.

It’s now believed that Chelsea were trying to bring down the fee, which Benfica weren’t happy with as he has been dropped from the Portuguese side’s matchday squads.

Wout Weghorst

Manchester United’s interest in Wout Weghorst came as a surprise, but Erik ten Hag is a big of the player and is keen to add him to his side.

The Dutch forward is currently on loan at Besiktas from Burnley but Manchester United are looking to bring him to Old Trafford on a six-month deal.

A deal could be concluded this week as Manchester United look to add to their attacking depth for the second half of the campaign.

Joao Felix

Joao Felix is unhappy at Atletico Madrid and is keen to leave the club, with the Spanish side open to letting him go in the winter as well.

Felix has attracted interest from a trio of English clubs including Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea as they all look to improve their attacking issues.

However, they’ve been put off by the high loan fee but could bring that down if they negotiate in a bid to get him to their clubs.

Memphis Depay

Like Felix, Memphis Depay is keen to leave Barcelona and the club are open to letting him go having rarely seen him play over the course of this season.

Depay is attracting interest from England and the player himself is keen to play at a Champions League club but he may not get that.

Manchester United boss Ten Hag is open to bringing him to Old Trafford again on a short term deal and a transfer could be completed soon.
