West Ham have failed with "big offers" for transfer targets in January, David Moyes has confirmed. The club are looking for attacking reinforcements after letting Sebastien Haller leave for £22million earlier in the month. Michail Antonio is the only recognised striker, and on Saturday scored in only goal as Burnley were beaten.
Barcelona are unlikely to make any changes to their squad during the January transfer window due to the club's presidential election being postponed, coach Ronald Koeman said on Saturday. "I've heard all sorts of things, that I'm apparently annoyed, unhappy and worried," Koeman told a news conference. Manchester City's Eric Garcia had been heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp, while Koeman also admitted substitute goalkeeper Neto wants to leave.
The likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea all have two matches in gameweek 19, while West Ham have two enticing fixtures at home. The Manchester City talisman is rarely rested in comparison with his team-mates, and has two inviting home games against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa in which to pick up the points.
The midseason window is now at its halfway stage but we are yet to see too many major moves as clubs grapple with the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Reports today claim that one of the big moves may not involve any players at all, with suggestions Avram Grant could make a shock return to Stamford Bridge to assist Frank Lampard, while Fikayo Tomori is being linked with a loan move to AC Milan. Arsenal’s business will depend heavily on any outgoings and with Sead Kolasinac having departed on loan already, all eyes are on his close friend Mesut Ozil, who looks increasingly likely to join Fenerbahce.
