With the deadline just a few hours away, I take a look into the investments made by the top six in the Premier League during the winter window.

We start off with league leaders Liverpool, who look set to win the Premier League for the first time in history after remaining unbeaten so far and 19 points off second place.

Jurgen Klopp has made little reinforcement to the Champions League winning side since the summer as they maintain their terrific form.

After seeing his impressive performance against the Reds in the Champions League, Liverpool signed Japanese midfield maestro Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg.

Manchester City have made no signings this January despite looking for someone in defence and midfield. Pep Guardiola insists that he has faith in his players and won’t buy anyone on a tight deadline.

The Cityzens were previous linked with Rennes starlet Eduardo Camavinga, who has also been linked with Zidane’s Real Madrid side.

Like City, Leicester and Chelsea have also failed to sign any one during the window. The Blues in particular have been struggling as Frank Lampard is keen to bring in a striker.

With Tammy Abraham out from an ankle injury, Chelsea have their eyes on Napoli’s Dries Mertens after failing to bring Edinson Cavani to Stamford Bridge.

Ole Gunnar Solksjær’s Manchester United have finally purchase their long-awaited saviour in midfield. Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes has joined the Red Devils for £48m (with £20m add-ons).

Fans will be hoping he brings the creative flair and chances that the red half of Manchester have been missing this season.

Manchester United have also been linked to their former youth player Josh King in order to fill in the striker position while Marcus Rashford is out injured. Nothing has been agreed yet between United and Bournemouth, but the Cherries are looking for a potential replacement.

The Red Devils have also confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Nathan Bishop from Southend for an undisclosed fee.

Tottenham Hotspur by far have had the best window as it looks like Daniel Levy has put his faith into Jose Mourinho.

A few thought the departure of Eriksen would leave a void for the North London side. However, they have invested heavily in the last couple of weeks.

The Lilywhites have signed Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent deal for just £27m! This follows after agreeing a loan deal for Benfica starlet Gedson Fernandes. But by far the signing with the most potential has to be Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven.

With five goals and 10 assists in the Eredivisie, the stocky Dutch winger is showing performances reminiscent to that of his predecessor, Memphis Depay. This could bolster Spurs’ attack and get them into a top 4 finish.

The transfer window shuts at 11pm tonight.
