When the English football winter transfer season 2020/2021 stars, is a question asked by many fans.
Winter is not the time when teams buy force like summer. However, this is still seen as an opportunity for clubs. They have the chance to strengthen their power to compete for titles and liquidate their inventories to balance their finances.
Unlike the summer transfer window that is allowed to last up to 12 weeks, the buying period of teams in the winter transfer window is only 4 weeks (1 month). As a rule, the timeline of this transfer period will be fixed by each national football federation and association. In the UK, the winter market will open on the first day of the new year. It will close on January 31.
Winter transfer market in the UK will last from 1/1 to 31/1
During the transfer window last winter, 20 Premier League clubs spent a total of 221.6 million euros on shopping. While the amount they earned from “selling people” is 51.95 million euros (46.7 million pounds).
Among the contracts that took place in January 2020, Bruno Fernandes of MU is the player with the highest value with 55 million euros. This is equivalent to 50 million pounds, followed by Steven Bergwijn (Tottenham) with 30 million euros ( 27 million pounds).
This year, except for Tottenham, other champions are expected to actively go to the market during the winter transfer window. For example, MU, they are targeting Dayot Upamecano (RB Leipzig), David Carmo (Braga). In the opposite direction, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba are the names that may go away.
Top English football goalscorer 2020/2021
Last season, Jamie Vardy finished first in the race for the title with a total of 23 goals. The Leicester City striker only scored more than the last 2 chasing strikers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) and Danny Ings (Southampton) exactly 1 goal.
Salah is leading the list of top scorer
Vardy broke the old record held by Didier Drogba to become the oldest player in Premier League history to win the title of top scorer. In the 2015/16 season, Vardy once scored 24 goals, but failed in the race to win the title of Golden Boot in the Premier League, when Harry Kane (Tottenham) was 1 goal behind.
