Tottenham signing Timo Werner is a desperate move – but Chelsea flop should be motivated to prove his doubters wrong: GOAL grades 2024’s biggest January transfers

Happy New Year to all, but especially transfer fans, as the changing of calendars can only mean one thing: The January window is open! Clubs around the world will have been making their plans ever since the summer window shut, and now we get to see just who will be on the move mid-season.

January is a notoriously difficult time to do business, but if 2023's record-breaking windows are anything to go by, then we are in for an exciting month. Remember, too, that this is a year with major tournaments in it, so more players than usual might be keen on moves so as to improve their chances of appearing for their national teams.

With all that in mind, GOAL is again set to pass judgement on all the biggest deals as they happen, awarding grades to both clubs involved for the business they've done, as well as whether it's the right move for each player.
