The January transfer window is the opportunity for clubs across Europe to do some business mid-season to try to help their campaigns. There has been a lot of speculation as to who may leave and arrive in Serie A this month. Here is a look at three players who could make the switch between Serie A and the Premier League.
Gonzalo Higuain – Juventus To Chelsea
Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain has scored over 100 goals in Serie A since he joined the Italian league in 2013 from Real Madrid. However, his time here could be coming to an end this month as the 31-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea. The Blues will be looking to get back on top next season, as their best chance of silverware this time around is the EFL Cup, where they join Tottenham, Burton and Manchester City in the last four, the latter of which qualified after a low scoring game against Leicester as tipped up by Oddschecker in their preview of that game. Chelsea face Spurs in the semi-final of that competition and they will be keen to add a striker to their squad before the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Alvaro Morata – Chelsea To AC Milan
Former Juventus striker Alvaro Morata was a big hit in Italy for champions Juventus between 2014 and 2016, which led to his parent club Real Madrid recalling the player back to the Bernabeu. Since switching to Chelsea in 2017 for £58 million, it hasn’t really worked out for the Spaniard in the Premier League. In order to fund a deal for Higuain, Chelsea may be looking to offload Morata first, with AC Milan thought to be leading the race to sign the 26-year-old this month.
Aaron Ramsey – Arsenal To Juventus
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is out of contract at the end of the season. It was reported earlier in the week that Juventus are keen on offering the Welshman a deal. That transfer may come much earlier now if Juventus and Arsenal can agree on a fee for the player to join the Italian club in January.
