Pablo Sarabia – (PSG – Wolves, £4.4m)
Wolverhampton Wanderers squad restructuring in January brought about the signing Sarabia from Paris Saint-Germain for a bargain.
The Spanish midfielder endured a disappointing campaign at PSG, falling to register a goal or an assist in 14 games but his 20 goals contributions on loan at Sporting CP last season gives Wolves the courage to bring him onboard in January.
This season for Julen Lopetegui’s side he has played 11 games and scored one goal, while influencing play from midfield for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Enzo Fernandez – (Benfica – Chelsea, £106.8m)

Jorginho – (Chelsea – Arsenal, £12m)
Jorginho may not be as exciting as Leandro Trossard has been for Arsenal since joining, but the Italian has undoubtedly bring onboard more quality into the Gunners team.
While Jorginho’s signing was questioned and criticized by the Gunners fans when he joined, his performance against Aston Villa shut doubters up on what to expect from the midfielder.
Jorginho hasn’t really feature in lot of games for Arsenal, but the few ones he’s been involved in he has shown great quality and impact.
It is safe to say the loan signing of Navas from Paris Saint-Germain to Nottingham Forest in the January transfer window was the best business done by the club’s hierarchy.
When Dean Henderson picked up an injury it was important for the club to bring onboard a new goalie, and thankfully they brought in an experience goalkeeper who has achieved a lot in the world of football.
In the absence of Henderson the Paris Saint-Germain loanee has proven to be the club’s best player in terms of on-field performance.
Cody Gakpo – (PSV – Liverpool, £35m)
Gakpo joining Liverpool in January 2023 was one of the biggest footballing surprise, after many thought the Dutchman would head to Manchester United if he decides to leave PSV.
While this season has shown to be one of the bad season for Liverpool in terms of performance, Gakpo has proven to be a fine addition with the little impact he’s had in attack for the Reds.
The 23-year-old has proved to be a vital component of Liverpool since joining from PSV in January for £35m playing 14 games and registering 4 goals for the Kop.
Marcel Sabitzer – (Bayern Munich – Manchester United, Loan)
Like Arsenal’s move for Jorginho, Manchester United were forced into the transfer market after their Danish midfielder Eriksen picked up an ankle injury.
In replacing the Dane, Sabitzer was signed on-loan from Bayern Munich in January and he has since had a remarkable impact on the team, scoring a brace against Sevilla in the Europa League on Thursday.
Should the Austrian continue displaying amazing performance the club’s hierarchy won’t hesitate to sign him permanently.
