5 players could return to the Premier League in January

The winter transfer period is approaching and Premier League clubs will soon spend money to recruit new faces or those already familiar with the tournament.

David de Gea

David de Gea has not joined any club since leaving Manchester United last summer. The 33-year-old player was linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League but the deal fell through. Recently, Newcastle emerged as a potential destination for De Gea in the context of goalkeeper Nick Pope missing the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury.

Ready to sign a free contract when the January transfer window opens, the former Man United star could be a quality addition to the “Magpies” on a short-term contract.

Raphinha

Raphinha has been linked with a return to the Premier League after struggling to make regular appearances at Barcelona this season. The former Leeds winger has only started six matches for the Spanish champions.

Raphinha has scored 17 goals and provided 12 assists in two seasons playing in the Premier League with Leeds. Previously, Arsenal and Chelsea had made offers to sign the 27-year-old before he moved to Spain.

Barca is also ready to let the Brazilian player leave if he receives a suitable offer. It is known that “Blaugrana” shouted a price to buy Raphinha off at about 55 million pounds. Manchester United is considering promoting the deal.

Ruben Neves

Newcastle can ask to borrow Neves from Al Hilal. It is important to know that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) owns a series of clubs in its home country including Al Hilal, Al Nassr, Al Ittihad, and Al Ahli. By 2021, PIF will spend 300 million pounds to buy back 80% of Newcastle’s shares from owner Mike Ashley.

The Telegraph revealed that Ruben Neves is feeling unhappy in Saudi Arabia. When he first arrived at Al Hilal, Neves was considered an indispensable “card” in the midfield. But now, things have changed in a different direction. With Sandro Tonali suspended for 8 months for violating betting rules earlier this season, Neves is seen as the perfect replacement for the Italian international in midfield.

Viktor Gyokeres

Viktor Gyokeres was never given a chance during his time with Brighton in the Premier League. Four seasons with the “Seagulls” saw the Swedish player being loaned out three times, before playing a key role at Coventry City in the period 2021–2023.

The 25-year-old scored 38 goals in 91 matches in the Championship. His high form helped him move to Sporting Lisbon for 20 million pounds. Immediately, Gyokeres made a strong impression in the Portuguese capital team, with 17 goals and 8 assists after 20 appearances in all competitions.

With a convincing performance, Gyokeres is being watched by Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham and West Ham. Sporting Lisbon is expected to demand a release clause of 100m euros (£86m) for the 25-year-old.

Jeremie Frimpong

The Manchester City academy graduate won the treble with Celtic in the 2019/20 season, before joining Bayer Leverkusen for an undisclosed fee in January 2021. At the German team, Frimpong developed into one of the most promising full-backs in European football and was included in the Bundesliga Team of the Year for the 2022/23 season.

This season, the Dutch player made his debut for the national team in October 2023 and under Xabi Alonso’s reign, he formed an excellent full-back pair with Alejandro Grimaldo, contributing greatly to bringing Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the table…

Frimpong contributed 7 goals and 9 assists after 21 appearances in all competitions. Currently, Manchester United is among the clubs considering buying this player. Jeremie Frimpong has a release clause worth 40 million euros (34.4 million pounds) – a number that is not too large to make the “Red Devils” upper-class falter.
