During last summer's transfer season we saw some controversy regarding Neymar's move to PSG raising concern for financial fair play regulation.

There's a general feeling that top tier players will stay at their respective clubs until the end of this season. Harry Kane's move to Real Madrid has been put on the back-burner by Potchettino who maintains that the club will do well to keep the English striker going forward.

Here's a list of reported signings, rumours, and January transfer window updates. 

Confirmed Signings

Ross Barkley (Everton) to Chelsea - £15m

Barkley signed a five and a half year contract to end his association with boyhood club, Everton. Barkley will wear the No 8 jersey for Chelsea and will play alongside his England team-mate Gary Cahill, who has heaped praise on the club for signing Barkley. The 24-year-old is has recovered from a hamstring injury that saw him sidelined since the start of the season.

Cenk Tosun (Besiktas) to Everton - £27m

The former Besiktas man is Sam Allardyce's attempt at signing a striker ahead of the new year. He's sent off officials to ensure the signing goes smoothly amidst interest from other European clubs.

Transfer Rumours

Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) to Manchester United

Ozil will not sign a new deal with Arsenal and has been linked to a move to Old Trafford. The German will head off in the summer on a free transfer, but the Gunners will be keen to sell him during this January window in order to receive some funds for his sale.
