There are several high-profile transfers that are yet to be finalised this month
It is a notoriously difficult window in which to do transfer business and the numbers do not lie.
An indication of the slim pickings that have been on offer is that there have been just 22 new signings across 12 Premier League clubs so far during the January transfer window.
But, with the final week now in full swing, we anticipate things hotting up ahead of the 11pm deadline on Friday.
There are plenty of big names that are still up for discussion as we assess the state of play regarding 10 of the most high-profile, unfinished transfer sagas of this month.
Christian Eriksen – Tottenham to Inter Milan
Christian Eriksen is on the verge of completing his protracted move to Inter Milan
The first to surely get over the line, as early as Monday.
Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is close to joining Inter Milan, with a medical scheduled for today. The 27-year-old is expected to complete a £16.8m move to Italy which could see him earn up to £320,000 per week.
Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta said: “You all know that we are negotiating with Tottenham.
“I am optimistic and I hope everything can be concluded quickly because the market closes on Friday and we hope to conclude the negotiations in the next few days.”
