The midseason transfer window can be a double-edged sword, giving teams both the opportunity to offload problematic players and bring in new talent. But there’s always a risk involved in trying to integrate new members of the roster midseason.
Since the end of the transfer period last month, Chelsea has managed to keep its hold on the top of the League, with Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool all continuing to crowd the top. Meanwhile, West Ham United have improved the most, winning their last four matches and jumping from No. 18 to No. 10 in the League.
On the whole, the acquisitions don’t appear to have made a particularly strong impression so far, as the status quo in the league has not changed dramatically. It will likely take more time for new players to make their presence felt both on their own squads and in the league.
Now a little less than a month from the end of the January transfer window, we check in on how some of the biggest targets have fared on their new teams.
