January Transfer Predictions

The January transfer window has opened today and many moves should happen over the next month. Across the world, clubs are setting their budgets up for what could be a hectic transfer period. Big names like Junior Hoilett and Lukas Podolski might be at a new club by the end of the month. Here are my predictions for the January transfer window.

1. Gary Cahill to Chelsea for 8 million euros
England international Gary Cahill could be one of the best buys of the window. Right now, Cahill is working out a deal with Andre Villas-Boas which will get done. Cahill will be able to develop even more since he will be playing beside England captain John Terry. Cahill will get his wages worked out because the opportunity to play in Europe will be too hard to pass up.

2. Lukas Podolski stays at FC Cologne
The German international is one of the most underrated strikers in the world. Podolski has some great opportunities to move to the Premier League with possibly Arsenal or Liverpool. However, Podolski will not move to the Premier League yet because he would not have a permanent starting spot. Podolski would be stuck behind Robin Van Persie at Arsenal. Arsenal has Thierry Henry on loan to be behind Van Persie while Chamakh is at the Africa Championships. Liverpool would only use Podolski as a starter till Luis Suarez returned. Podolski will wait till the summer to make a move away.

3. Junior Hoilett to Newcastle United for 10 million euros.
Hoilett is one of the best young players in the Premier League right now. Hoilett would be a perfect for Newcastle because he could fill in for Demba Ba at striker while Ba is at the Africa Championships. When Ba gets back, Hoilett can move back out to the right wing and be a potent threat on the outside. Hoilett has the potential to be the piece that can keep Newcastle lurking for a spot in Europe over the next couple of years. Alan Pardew will make a smart buy in Hoilett.

4. Bobby Zamora to QPR for 9 million euros.
Zamora has played excellent over the last few years at Craven Cottage for Fulham. However, he is now unsettled and Neil Warnock knows that Zamora can bring the goals that will take QPR away from relegation danger. Zamora must get out of Fulham and QPR is the perfect place for him to create a new legacy. Warnock will make this swoop because Zamora will bring goals to a team that needs goals.

5. Nicky Maynard to Fulham for 5 million euros.
Maynard has become one of the best players in the Championship. Martin Jol is going to want a player who can develop into a player that is even better than Zamora was and Maynard is exactly that. Bristol City is looking to sell him since he is starting to become unsettled and the Premier League is preparing for him Maynard will want to make this move to take the next step in his development.

6. Liam Ridgewell to QPR for 2.5 million euros.
Ridgewell was a key part of a good backline for Birmingham last year. QPR needs a centerback and Ridgewell is a good fit that is not very expensive. Ridgewell would love the opportunity to return to the Premier League. Neil Warnock knows that Liam Ridgewell wants to come back to the top flight and he will spend the cash to bring him back up to it.

7. Chris Samba to Tottenham for 9 million euros.
Samba is one of the most underrated centerbacks in all of the world. Samba is on a Blackburn team that will not be headed for Europe over the next few years. Samba could turn that backline into one that can keep Tottenham in contention for the Premier League title this year. Harry Redknapp will make this move to give Tottenham an improved shot at a Premier League title.

8. Carlos Tevez to AC Milan for 30 million euros.
Carlos Tevez can be one of the best strikers in the world when he does what he is supposed to do. However, Tevez decided that he n longer wanted to play for Manchester City and manager Roberto Mancini is trying to move him now. AC Milan would love another star player and Tevez is the perfect fit. With the tight race they are in, Tevez can be the player that pushes AC Milan to the top of Serie A. AC Milan is ready to take the gamble that Carlos Tevez will play to his best.
