Premier League leaders Arsenal looked to maintain their title challenge with an active January transfer window.
Mikel Arteta was not prepared to risk falling away in the second half of the season and moved to strengthen his squad as the club aim to end a 19-year wait for a League title.
The Gunners brought in three players, though that is not to say the month was not a frustrating one. Arsenal failed to land either Mykhailo Mudryk or Moises Caicedo despite multiple offers for both, so were forced to pursue other signings.
Leandro Trossard – Brighton, £21m
Jakub Kiwior - Spezia, £20m
Jorginho – Chelsea, £12m
Despite missing out on Mudryk and Caicedo, Arsenal did at least strengthen two key areas. In Trossard and Jorginho, they bring in ready-made Premier League players, with the hope being they can hit the ground running.
Kiwior, meanwhile, offers Arteta the cover at left centre-back he has been so keen to sign.
Brooke Norton-Cuffy – Coventry, loan
Miguel Azeez – Wigan, loan
Tom Smith - Colchester, loan
Harry Clarke – Ipswich, undisclosed
Arthur Okonkwo - Sturm Graz, loan
Nathan Butler-Oyedeji - Accrington, loan
Taylor Foran - Hartlepool, loan
Marquinhos – Norwich, loan
Omar Rekik – Wigan, loan
Cedric Soares - Fulham, loan
Albert Sambi Lokonga - Crystal Palace, loan
Kido Taylor-Hart - Derby, loan
Billy Vigar - Derby, loan
Cedric Soares and Albert Sambi Lokonga look for first-team football elswhere, a surprise as Arteta consistently spoke of being short on options - particularly in midfield.
