Are these going to be the big transfers in the January transfer window?
Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool to Barcelona)
It was purported to be one of the biggest deals of the summer, but Coutinho’s move to Barcelona never materialised before the window shut. The Brazilian tried his best to force through a move to the Catalans, as he was all set to be one of the replacements for Neymar along with Ousmane Dembele.
Coutinho remained at Liverpool, but his future still remains as unclear as ever. Jurgen Klopp protected the player soon after the window shut, with Coutinho reportedly out with an injury but it was evident the player did not have his head at the club. Time has gone on and the attacking midfielder has knuckled down, but Barca remain extremely keen on the player who is a long-term target.
