January Transfer Window 2021: The Most Expensive Transfers

The January Transfer Window has officially closed for the 2021 season. Although there weren’t too many major moves going on throughout the world, there were still a few big time deals that went through. In conclusion, here are the most expensive transfers from the January Transfer Window.

(All transfer fees were found on Transfermarkt)

5. Nicolò Rovella to Juventus – 19.8m

The first transfer to find its way onto our list is a big transfer for the future. Nicolò Rovella has made the move to Juventus from Genoa. Juventus paid quite a hefty sum for the 19 year old midfielder. It is clear that they think he can be an important player in the future. But for the time being, Rovella will remain at Genoa on loan. His loan move is expected to end in the summer of 2022. At that time Juventus will see if there is a spot for him in the first team.

4. Dominik Szoboszlai to RB Leipzig – 22m

Dominik Szoboszlai is a very highly rated player who has finally secured a big move. This is clearly a huge steal as Leipzig has benefited from their partnership with RB Salzburg. Szoboszlai has spent a lot of time being linked with AC Milan and Arsenal among other clubs. But with Leipzig he has a great chance to continue growing into a superstar. RB Leipzig is known for giving playing time to youngsters and developing them. In conclusion, I fully expect Szoboszlai to become an immediate factor for Leipzig.

3. Amad Diallo to Man Utd – 23.1m

This transfer is another one that may be seen as a move for the future. Amad Diallo is an extremely highly rated 18 year old from Serie A. The player moved to Manchester United from Atalanta. Manchester United clearly see Diallo as someone who can grow into a superstar in the future. Certainly they have shown as much faith with the transfer fee that they decided to pay.

2. Sébastien Haller to Ajax – 24.75m

This is the first of two transfers in this list that include West Ham. Sébastian Haller has made the move from the Premier League club to Ajax. Haller was seen as the solution to West Ham’s striker spot, but he struggled to find consistency. The January Transfer Window was the perfect opportunity for Haller to make a new move. Above all he will look to get back to the goal scoring form that made him such a highly rated player.

1. Saïd Benrahma to West Ham – 25.41m

The final transfer move for this January Transfer Window is Saïd Benrahma to West Ham. Technically speaking, Benrahma has been at West Ham since October. Originally he had made a loan move from Brentford to West Ham in the Summer Transfer Window. But West Ham have been so impressed with his play that they already decided to make the move permanent. Benrahma is an important part of West Ham’s attack. As a result, he will need to continue his good form as West Ham fight for a Champions League spot.
