Eight stars that could make Premier League moves
The January transfer window is well into its second week and things are starting to heat up.
After a collective spend of £185million a year ago, Premier League sides are expected to get the chequebook out again as they look to reinforce for the second half of the season.
Will Manchester United follow up their big-spending summer with further new faces? Does Jurgen Klopp fancy reinforcements as Liverpool eye a tilt at the title? Will Arsene Wenger splash the cash as he looks to end Arsenal’s title drought?
And do league leaders Chelsea need any further bodies in their quest to land the title?

Clement: Llorente and Sigurdsson MUST stay
New Swansea head coach Paul Clement says the club must keep hold of Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson this month.
Chelsea want striker Llorente, while Everton are keeping tabs on midfield star Sigurdsson.
But Clement has labelled the pair as the Swans’ best players – they have scored 12 goals between them this season for a club currently one point from safety.
Ahead of his first league game in charge at home to Arsenal on Saturday, he said: “I want to keep Gylfi here. He’s similar to Llorente.
“We’re in a situation where we want to win games and you’ve got to keep your best players to do that.
“I’ve enjoyed working with them already, they appear to be very motivated, focussed on what we need to do to move this team forward.”
A quick glance at this morning’s papers suggests Jesse Lingard has agreed a new £95,000-a-week contract with Manchester United.
The new deal will keep him at Old Trafford until 2021.
Lingard, who broke into United’s first team at the start of last season, was previously on £30,000 a week but will earn more than three times that amount under the terms of his new deal.
United had initially only offered Lingard £60,000 a week to extend and he was reportedly reluctant to sign, but the Sun says United proved how much they value the Warrington-born 24-year-old with a much-improved offer which was too much to resist.
