January is the month as we all know to grab a bargain if you are out shopping down the high street or surfing the web.
The football transfer market can be a much more difficult place trying to find that bargain with players currently settled into the midpoint of the season. Players that have been unsettled (Demba Ba) in the month leading up to January and have a release clause can make it easier for a club to snap up a player at bargain (7 million) but we don't often see those.
It can also be a good month for clubs to bring freshness into their side (Everton, Jelavic) (Suarez, Liverpool) (Vidic, Man Utd) although the rewards might not be seen until the following season when a player has had time time to settle in. Sometimes it can be a mistake for clubs rushing in players (Torres, Chelsea) (Carroll, Liverpool)for exorbitant fees hoping they can solve a problem that never really needed fixing in the first place.
With the transfer market being open who would you most like to see in your respective club? A much needed striker to add depth or get those goals needed to climb up the table or push for glory? A linchpin centre half to plug up those leaky gaps at the back? Maybe a flashy winger to provide some brilliance in that last third? Or any other position that you feel needs filling in the race to the finish line?
