With the winter transfer window now closed in the top leagues across Europe, let’s take a look at the 10 best permanent deals that happened in January.
10. Reinier Jesus Carvalho(€30.00million)
The 18-year-old joined Real Madrid from Brazilian club side, Flamengo, but would only join the Galacticos in the summer having been loaned back to Flamengo.
9. Krzysztof Piatek (€27.00million)
Milan had high hopes for Piatek when they brought him in from Genoa in January 2019 and the Polish striker impressed in his first few games for the Rossoneri. But he has been a shadow of himself this season and with the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they had to let him go.
8. Steven Bergwijn (€30.00million)
Tottenham brought in three first-team players this January and one of them was the Dutchman. Signed from PSV for £22million, Bergwijn is expected to add more firepower to the Spurs front line in the absence of Harry Kane.
7. Dani Olmo (€20.00million)
The young Spanish attacking midfielder joins Bundesliga leaders, RB Leipzig, from Dinamo Zagreb. He is one of the stars to watch out for in the future.
6. Dejan Kulusevski (€35.00million)
In the usual manner, Juventus dropped down to one of the teams below them to pick one of their best players. The 19-year-old right-winger would have to fight for a place in Sarri's team against some more established stars.
5. Paco Alcacera (€23.00million)
Paco Alcacer was the man that had to be chopped off by Dortmund to accommodate another player on this list. The Spaniard made the move back to his homeland where he joined Villareal.
4. Duvan Zapata (€12.00million)
The Colombian striker was signed permanently by Atalanta this January, having been on loan from Sampdoria. Both teams agreed on a fee for the poacher who has been a key member of the impressive Atalanta side.
3. Erling Haaland (€20.00million)
One of the hottest talents in world football at the moment and he is already looking like a great buy for Dortmund with five goals scored in his first two appearances off the bench. Haaland snubbed Manchester United to join BVB and that seems like the best decision for his development.
2. Bruno Fernandes (€55.00million)
This is a deal that took United two transfer windows to complete but it might prove to be the solution to the Red Devils’ creative problems which they have had in the absence of Paul Pogba. The 25-year-old is the most expensive signing this January.
1. Christian Eriksen (€20.00million)
Top of the list and rightly so. Inter have gotten a gem in Eriksen whom they signed from Tottenham Hotspur for €20 million. Eriksen's contract with Spurs was set to expire on June 30, so Spurs decided on cashing out on him than to lose him for free in the summer.
