The January transfer window closes tonight but some clubs are still trying and thrash out last-minute deals for players they want to recruit.

Chelsea have been the busiest side so far, securing deals for Christian Pulisic and Gonzalo Higuain this month, while also letting Cesc Fabregas join Monaco.

But there are plenty of rumours flying around so how might every team look by the time the weekend’s fixtures roll around?

Below you can see how every club in the top tier could line up – with their new signings – come the matches.

AFC Bournemouth

Bournemouth have had a very good January in the market so far, signing Dominic Solanke for £19million and Nathaiel Clyne on loan – both from Liverpool.

They also brought in Wales international Chris Mepham from Brentford and it looks like they’re going to keep hold of star striker Callum Wilson after Chelsea and West Ham’s interest in him faded.

Arsenal

Manager Unai Emery announced the club would only be able to sign players on loan this winter and said they were looking to bring in two players this week.

Denis Suarez has been re-united with Emery and may join permanently.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Christopher Nkunku had also been linked with a move to Arsenal, along with Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, but it’s unlikely either will happen.

Brighton

The Seagulls have done one piece of business in January – signing talented Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, 20, before loaning him back to Argentinos Juniors for the remainder of the season.

It’s very unlikely there will be anyone coming in or leaving Brighton before the deadline.

Burnley

We didn’t expect many changes to Burnley’s line-up as they had been pretty quiet in the transfer market.

James Tarkowski was briefly linked to Liverpool, while Joe Hart was also reportedly considering a move to Preston in the Championship but given Tom Heaton is fit again and performing well, Hart wouldn’t make this team anyway.

On deadline day though a deal taking Sam Vokes to Stoke City and taking Peter Crouch the other way has emerged.

Cardiff City

Cardiff are in a relegation battle and did recruit two forwards to help steer them out of trouble – Oumar Niasse and Emiliano Sala.

However, the days after Sala completed his move from Nantes ended in tragic circumstances when a private plane he was on board went missing over the English channel last week.

The authorities ended their search for the aircraft three days after it went missing, although it has resumed after a crowdfunding page raised €300,000 for it.

There’s unsurprisingly a very sombre mood around Cardiff, with manager Neil Warnock saying he’s considered leaving his job following the awful news.

Leandro Bacuna has signed, while Vincent Janssen of Tottenham Hotspur has been linked.

Chelsea

Big changes are happening at Chelsea, with Higuain and Pulisic’s arrivals, however, the American was loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the rest of the season.

Promising youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi seems to be keen on a move to Bayern Munich although the latest news suggests the Blues will not let him leave in January.

They have been linked with a move for former academy player Ake but this is set to be a summer saga and should hold onto Willian, despite Paris Saint-Germain links.

Crystal Palace

The Eagles have made one signing so far, bringing in goalkeeper Lucas Perri, 21, on loan until the end of the season.

Palace are clearly preparing for life without Wayne Hennessey, who faces a potential ban after being pictured allegedly doing a Nazi salute earlier in January.

They were thought to be making a double swoop for Everton duo Cenk Tosun and former player Yannick Bolasie, who recently cut short his season-long loan spell at Aston Villa, but these have gone cold.

The Eagles are without a suspended Wilfried Zaha too.

Everton

Everton went on a spending spree last summer so it’s no surprise manager Marco Silva ruled out the possibility of bringing anyone else in at the last moment.

The biggest story at Goodison Park surrounds Idrissa Gueye’s future after the midfielder handed in a transfer request amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Toffees don’t want to sell the him but if PSG improve on their bid of £25m, who knows what will happen?

Fulham

It was felt the Cottagers wouldn’t bring in another player after Ryan Babel, who arrived earlier this month and had a good debut against Tottenham.

Huddersfield

Jason Puncheon joined on loan from Crystal Palace and most recently Karlan Grant signed on the dotted line.

David Wagner left the club earlier this month and Jan Siewart has replaced him which has probably been the biggest piece of news to come out of the Premier League’s bottom club.

Leicester City

Leicester are a club in a rut and the writing appears to be on the wall for under pressure manager Claude Puel so there’s no real appeal to join the club at present.

Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans seems set to replace Vicente Iborra, who left for Villarreal earlier this month.

Liverpool

Injuries in defence have been the running theme at Liverpool in January and despite all this, Jurgen Klopp has been reluctant to get anyone else in before the deadline.

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola’s men are also unlikely to bring in any new players before the deadline either as they usually do the big-money moves in the summer.

They were linked with the likes of West Ham youngster Declan Rice as they look to find a long-term replacement for an ageing Fernandinho and signed Ante Palaversa from Hajduk Split before loaning him back.

Manchester United

Life is good at Old Trafford these days, even if they are a bit questionable in defence.

It was never likely Manchester United were going to bring in any players as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not their permanent manager, not yet anyway, but Anthony Martial has signed a new contract.

Newcastle United

They nearly signed Jordan Lukaku, brother of Romelu, but that deal fell through at the last minute.

But now Miguel Almiron has arrived for a club-record fee along with Antonio Barreca from Monaco.

Southampton

Saints have waved goodbye to Manolo Gabbiadini, Wesley Hoedt, Steven Davis and Cedric Soares this January as Ralph Hasenhuttl looks to build a Southampton team in his image.

They’re in need of goals and were been linked with Birmingham frontman Che Adams, but this is unlikely to happen.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham broke an unwanted record of being the only team to go through an entire summer transfer window without signing a player since the window came into play in 2003.

And despite injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli, it looks like no one else is coming in, although Georges-Kevin Nkoudou has left, and Vincent Janssen may follow.

Watford

Watford boss Javi Gracia has ruled out signing any players in January, so their transfer window has been more about keeping their players, namely Abdoulaye Doucoure.

The midfielder signed a new five-year contract in the summer but told French media earlier this month that he is ‘going to leave Watford’ amid links to French giants PSG and Chelsea, while he’s almost nursing an injury.

West Ham

So after all the fretting from West Ham fans, Arnautovic will stay after the Austrian penned a contract extension at the club last weekend despite being heavily linked with a move to China.

However, the Hammers could sign striker Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo, in what would be a record fee, but loan him back to the Spanish club during the second half of the season.

The Hammers have been in mixed form this season.

Wolves

Wolves’ January looked very positive but since they failed to land Tammy Abraham from Aston Villa, they have gone a bit quiet.

Wing-back Jonny has completed a permanent switch to Molineux but also admitted he was ‘heartbroken’ he didn’t become Felipe Luis’ successor.

But Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are more than equipped to keep a safe distance from the relegation zone.
