A number of players are hopefully getting their football future settled by the end of the January transfer window as Islam Slimani, Demarai Gray and Hamza Choudhury looks close to a move.Embed from Getty Images
The situation regarding Dennis Praet could be seen as a difficult one, but we believe that Brendan Rodgers are not looking at Hamza Choudhury as an alternative to Praet in an offensive midfield role, and with Papy Mendy as a preferred option, Sam Allardyce looks very close to get the signature, with Choudhury certain to get a place in his set up.
Demarai Gray is certain to leave as well, but his move where is still in the open with a cluster of clubs interest, and it will probably drag out with Leeds United seen as favorites, but again a move abroad could also be on, we just have to wait and see what happens.Embed from Getty Images
Islam Slimani is a player that still is in demand and Lyon are now favorites with the Algerian a player that has shown that he can cope well in France, previously been with Monaco on loan. A move is said to open a possible option for Leicester City to go into the market and sign another forward, but with Ayoze Perez and Kelechi Iheanacho as good covers, we don’t believe in the rumour and that nothing will happen in January regarding a new forward signing.Embed from Getty Images
News about a possible return of Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall looks totally unlikely, as the player is in a loan spell that will and shall last until the end of the season. Dewsbury-Hall is a player that of course will be an option, but to play well in The Championship is not the same as being a full Premier League performer. There might be a possible return clause, but as said earlier, it will take a lot to push that button, instead it could be that Brendan Rodgers goes into the market to find a suitable option, with Arsenal target and Norwich midfielder Emi Buendia a perfect solution. The 24 year old has been outstanding this season and has vital experience from Premier League action last season. Arsenal looks unable to cash out with a fee of £40million demanded.
