We are halfway through the January transfer window – plenty of time for Premier League clubs to complete deals.

Mousa Dembele is set to leave Tottenham after the club accepted an £11million bid from Chinese Super League club Beijing Sinobo Guoan on Tuesday.

Here, talkSPORT.com looks at other moves Premier League players could make before the transfer window shuts on January 31.

Alberto Moreno (Liverpool)

Moreno has started just four games for Liverpool this season and is not close to dislodging first-choice left-back Andy Robertson.

He has accused Reds boss Jurgen Klopp of not giving him a fair chance to reclaim a starting place and has thought about a return to La Liga.

Sevilla, the club Moreno left to join Liverpool in 2014, are believed to be interested in a reunion, while he has reportedly received “several offers” from Premier League clubs.

With his Anfield deal up at the end of the season, he can sign a pre-contract agreement with any foreign club.

Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea)

Fabregas bid farewell to Chelsea fans and the Premier League when leaving the pitch in tears during the Blues’ FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

The Spanish midfielder, who has played second fiddle to Jorginho this season, is set for an imminent move to Monaco.

But Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wants to find a replacement before letting the 31-year-old leave.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (Watford)

Doucoure has started all but one of Watford’s 21 league games as the eighth-placed Hornets aim for a top-10 finish.

The Frenchman has been linked with a £50million move to Paris Saint-Germain this month.

Speaking about their interest, Doucoure said: “It’s pleasing to hear a club such as PSG is interested in me. They look at lots of players and have plenty of targets. I am not the only one, and few players will be chosen by them.

“I am just happy that clubs are showing interest in me. There are not many other players around like me.

“If PSG are asking about me, and if they want to make me one of their players, I would be very happy.”

Divock Origi (Liverpool)

West Ham and Fulham are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool outcast Origi.

The Belgian attacker has made just four appearances this term and is behind Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge in the pecking order.

A permanent move from Anfield could resurrect his career.

Marko Arnautovic (West Ham)

It looks like there’s no going back for Arnautovic after his brother, Danijel, who acts as his agent, told talkSPORT the striker wants to leave West Ham.

An unnamed Chinese club bid £35million for the Hammers’ star man earlier this week.

The club are desperate to keep their talisman, but the Austrian, who would be on big money in China, could force their hand.

Joe Hart (Burnley)

A serious shoulder injury to England international Nick Pope saw Hart start the season as Burnley’s first choice goalkeeper, but after leaking too many goals, he was dropped for club captain Tom Heaton last month.

Pope’s return to action in Burnley’s FA Cup win against Barnsley last weekend means Hart is now the club’s third-choice goalkeeper.

The former City star wants first-team football – and he might have to move again to find it.

Alvaro Morata (Chelsea)

Morata has been linked with moves to Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.

The striker appeared visibly unhappy during Chelsea’s game against Nottingham Forest, despite scoring two goals.

Sarri wants to sign Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, whose agent allegedly arrived in London on Thursday to finalise a deal.

The Blues are crying out for a prolific striker and Higuain ticks all the boxes.

Idrissa Gueye (Everton)

Everton will be reluctant to sell their defensive midfielder, who is being targeted by PSG.

Along with Doucoure, Gueye is on a shortlist to replace retiring midfielder Lassana Diarra.

With Everton languishing in 11th place, Gueye, 29, could find the lure of Champions League too hard to resist.

Andreas Pereira (Manchester United)

It looked very promising for Pereira when he started in Manchester United‘s opening game of the season, however, he has failed to hold down a regular place since.

The 23-year-old, who has had loan spells with Granada and Valencia, has made four of interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s five match day squads.

But first-team football, week in, week out, seems unlikely at Old Trafford – and with his contract up at the end of the season – Pereira will have to access his options.

Victor Moses (Chelsea)

After playing such a pivotal role in their Premier League-winning season in the 2016/2017 campaign, Moses has been frozen out by Sarri, making just five appearances under the Italian coach.

Fenerbahce have made a loan offer for the Chelsea winger, who still has two-and-a-half years left on his Stamford Bridge deal.

It will be surprising if he isn’t with a new club by February.
