With the transfer window officially back open today, we take a look at some potential moves involving Premier League players.

Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona

Speculation has been rife that the little Brazilian would be on his way out of Anfield after handing in a transfer request last August after a reported bid from Barcelona in the region of £70million.

The move looks likely to happen before the start of next season. It could possibly happen in this January transfer window, after the £75 million arrival of Virgil Van Djik, but remains more likely to happen next July, as a move to Barcelona now would leave Couthinho cup tied for the Champions League.

Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City

Manchester City tried to sign the Arsenal man last Summer for £64 million, but the Londoners rebuffed City’s advance because a sufficient replacement could not be secured in time.

His body language and demeanour have left a lot to be desired this term, and team mates are refusing to celebrate with him in recent weeks. It may be close to the end of his tenure with Arsenal.

Manchester City now have injuries to Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne, so they may be forced into making a move for the Chilean in this window.

Mesut Ozil to Manchester United

Jose Mourinho has a long history with the player from their time together at Real Madrid, and with the German out of contract at the end of the season, Manchester United may test Arsenal’s resolve with a January bid.

However, a move would be more likely in July, as the player may look to go on a free transfer with a big signing-on fee.

Jonny Evans to Manchester City

Manchester City were strongly (and surprisingly) linked with the West Brom defender last season, but no official offer has been made for the former Manchester United player.

Baggies boss Alan Pardew admitted they will entertain offers for the centre-back, but only if the price is right.
