We’re almost half way through the January transfer window but we haven’t seen too much business done so far.
Tottenham are, though, set to get a deal over the line, bringing in young Benfica prospect Gedson Fernandes in on an 18-month loan deal.
His arrival will give Jose Mourinho’s squad extra depth with Moussa Sissoko a long-term absentee through injury and Christian Eriksen likely to join title-chasing Inter Milan in Italy.
Fernandes isn’t a huge name outside of Portugal but the box-to-box dribbler is well thought of in some circles.
It’s a deal which has the potential to enliven the marketplace but what other deals could go through?
talkSPORT.com have taken a look at some of the transfers which could happen this week.
Bruno Fernandes (Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United)
He looked destined for Tottenham in the summer but it’s now the Red Devils who seem set to land him.
After initially offering a player-plus-cash deal worth around £60m, it seems United will hand over just money now.
The midfielder has hit the headlines across Europe for his outrageous goal contributions in Portugal.
Last season he got 20 goals and 12 assists in the league, while this term he’s shown it was no one-season aberration by scoring eight and creating seven in just 15 matches.
He could add the creativity Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs in the middle of the park.
Christian Eriksen (Tottenham to Inter Milan)
The Danish playmaker has been off the boil for some time at Spurs with his contract on the verge of running out.
He’d had a fantastic career in north London, helping them reach the Champions League final last term but after 300 games it seems set to end.
Spurs want a little bit of cash for the player and Inter Milan are in a title race so it makes sense so it now appear a deal will go through worth around £17m.
Olivier Giroud (Chelsea to Inter Milan)
As mentioned above, the Italian giants are in a title race right now with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez bagging the goals.
The only problem is, with both starting, there aren’t many secondary options, especially with Alexis Sanchez seemingly not up to.
As such, as well as Eriksen, the Serie A side are looking at a new striker and a swoop for Giroud may well give them the back-up they need.
Eddie Nketiah (Arsenal to Aston Villa, Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday, or Nottingham Forest)
Having cut short his spell at Leeds United, the promising English striker is now about to go on loan again.
He’s got plenty of options thanks to his obvious talents.
As well as promotion chasing Championship sides, injury hit Villa are also trying to get the 20-year-old on a short-term deal.
Kyle Walker-Peters (Tottenham to Crystal Palace or Southampton)Even though he’s had a dodgy few seasons in north London, Serge Aurier is the undisputed No.1 right-back for Spurs.
Walker-Peters, now 22, has struggled to make a breakthrough at the club and seems keen to get first-team minutes.
Both Premier League sides want the player with Eagles boss Roy Hodgson confident they will land the player.
A battle is still on with the Saints though and a large loan fee could grease the wheels of any deal.
Javier Hernandez (Sevilla to LA Galaxy)
With three goals in 13 appearances since his switch from West Ham, it’s clear the Mexican is in need of a little step down.
MLS could be the perfect place for him to regain his confidence and the form which made him one of the world’s best poachers.
He would replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Los Angeles.
