Adil Rami (Valencia to AC Milan; loan)
Rami tends to intercept rather than tackle. He is a passionate, open and heart-on-your-sleeve type of person.
It got him in trouble at Valencia last year when he verbally eviscerated management and players, as per Lucas Brown at Sky Sports.
One concern for Milan is Rami's inactivity.
Alessandro Matri (AC Milan to Fiorentina; loan)
There is no way Matri is better than upcoming forward Ryder Matos, who is Fiorentina's top scorer in the UEFA Europa League.
If Fiorentina are not willing to give Ryder extended minutes, he should be loaned out.
Matri is only at the club due to injuries to Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez.
Anderson (Manchester United to Fiorentina; loan)
A positional change, injuries, weight gain and complacency are reasons why Anderson became a running joke as opposed to the next United superstar.
Fiorentina have a plethora of elite midfielders, so it will be a challenge to Anderson as he looks to rebuild his career.
Artjoms Rudnevs (Hamburg to Hannover 96; loan)
The emergence of Pierre-Michel Lasogga diminished Rudnevs' playing time at Hamburg. He does have quality as he once scored a hat-trick against Juventus for Lech Poznan.
Bertrand Traore (Chelsea to Vitesse; loan)
One of the most highly touted Chelsea prospects, he looked excellent during pre-season. He could end up displacing Renato Ibarra as Vitesse's right-forward in a 4-3-3.
In that situation, Traore would be playing as an inverted wide forward, cutting in and shooting with his left foot.
Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders to Fulham; loan)
Dempsey played as a deep-lying forward behind Dimitar Berbatov during Fulham's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.
Dempsey only scored one goal in 12 league games for Seattle and is currently goalless in two league games for Fulham as they attempt to stay in the top flight.
Jan Kirchhoff (Bayern Munich to Schalke; loan)
Kirchhoff is a tall and mobile defender who can play in midfield. He has world-class potential, and Bayern manager Pep Guardiola rates Kirchhoff enough to have played him off the bench seven times in league play.
The move to Schalke will give Kirchhoff the minutes he needs. He is good enough to be a future Bayern starter.
John Guidetti (Manchester City to Stoke City; loan)
Guidetti came off the bench against Crystal Palace, which is an achievement when you consider his career was debilitated by illness.
He is strong, has good positional sense and a knack for being in the right place at the right time.
Last time he was on loan at Feyenoord, he scored 20 times and created eight goals.
Stoke would be overjoyed with half of that production.
Leo Baptistao (Atletico Madrid to Real Betis; loan)
Why did Baptistao not join his former club Rayo Vallecano and help them avoid relegation?
Money talks, as per Football Espana:
It is being reported [by AS] that Betis are paying out €2.3 million for the deal.
Los Beticos, currently bottom of La Liga, will reportedly take over the player's wages for his six months at the Benito Villamarin, totaling €850,000, whilst Atletico will be paid €1,250,000 for loaning him out.
Baptistao was electric for Rayo and he will need to score a goal a game if Betis are to stay in La Liga.
M'Baye Niang (AC Milan to Montpellier; loan)
His physical attributes are immense, and when he builds up his confidence, he will be a nightmare for opposing centre-backs.
Scored on his Ligue 1 debut against Monaco.
Majeed Waris (Spartak Moscow to Valenciennes; loan)
Was is it a surprise that Bastia centre-back Sebastien Squillaci struggled to deal with Waris? Nope.
He has pace, his awareness in front of goal is excellent and Valenciennes will be expecting more goals from Waris.
Ola John (Benfica to Hamburg; loan)
A massive talent like his brother, Collins, but hopefully Ola doesn't end up like him. His first step is lethal, and he will be another weapon for Hamburg.
Radja Nainggolan (Cagliari to Roma; loan)
"Nainggolan knows how to do everything," Roma manager Rudi Garcia said, as per Eurosport. "He has technique, plays the long ball, can push forward and shoot for goal."
Nainggolan is a natural ball-winner, he can take on players and is an all-action midfielder.
