QUIZ: Can you name the biggest January deals?

The January transfer window is now firmly open and we’re expecting to be as busy as ever. Every football club is always looking to improve so this gives them an opportunity to add some quality to their side during the campaign, but it’s not always simple. During the winter window clubs aren’t as willing to offload their prized assets which can lead to some huge fees being thrown about. The bigger clubs tend to wait till the summer for this reason, but clubs at the wrong end of the table can have no choice but to spend big as they bid to climb away from trouble. So it always make for interesting viewing from the outside looking in!

Already this year we’ve seen some mega money spent in the window, with Liverpool shattering both their own transfer record and the one for a defender – with the signing of Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk. The Reds’ problems at the back have been well documented so it’s no surprise to see the towering centre-half make the move to Merseyside, but the fee shocked everyone. Jurgen Klopp shelled out a massive £75m to secure his services and it’s going to be interesting to see if that sets the precedent going forward throughout the remaining weeks of the window.

With the window now in full flow we’ve done some digging around this frantic time of the year. We’ve put together a quiz on some of the biggest deals to have been done during the winter – there’s definitely bound to be more names added to the records if recent signings are anything to go by! There’s twenty different answers and some huge fees, so give it your best shot and tweet in your scores to us @FootyAccums and we’ll RT the best attempts!
