January will see the arrival of the winter transfer window once again as football clubs in England and across Europe will be able to start dealing with each other once more.
Indeed, whilst the transfer window in the middle of the season can sometimes be rather challenging, it can also present players with a perfect opportunity as they could potentially get their careers on track.
Indeed, there are a few individuals that are currently out in the cold at their respective clubs at the minute that could do with a move elsewhere temporarily, if not permanently. If they can get one, then perhaps they will be in a winning position and boost their chances of making the first-team picture for the 21/22 campaign.
Here are just some of the players that The Sun newspaper highlighted as individuals that could benefit with a move:
Dan James – The Wales international arrived at Manchester United with plenty of hype about his ability and looked to be a part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad regularly last season. However, he has since made just three appearances so far this time out, thus seeing his progression stall.
Kepa Arrizabalga – The Chelsea ‘keeper has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Edouard Mendy and it looks rather unlikely that he will get another shot. However, stranger things have happened in the past and the Senegal international has made a couple of mistakes himself recently. Nonetheless, a move away from west London could revitalise the Spaniard’s career.
Fikayo Tomori – An important player for Frank Lampard last season and the year before, however this year he has rarely featured. The 22-year-old represented England last year but now appears to be on the fringes of his club’s side. A move will help him learn and develop in perhaps the same way Kurt Zouma has.
William Saliba – Arsenal signed William Saliba a couple of summers ago and allowed him to remain at St Etienne for the whole of last season. He would have been expected to play a role at the Gunners this year, however he was frozen out and left out of the registered squad. A move away could be a great way for him to make a fresh start, whilst also proving that he can play for the Emirates Stadium outfit in the Premier League.
Dele Alli – Once a Tottenham Hotspur stalwart in the middle of the park, Dele Alli can not get a game under Jose Mourinho and his time in north London looks very much to be at the end. If he can get a loan move elsewhere this January, he will have the chance to show Gareth Southgate that he should be involved with the England squad for the upcoming European Championships.
