The heat is boiling up in the Transfer Window battle to get the team balances right.

The third week of January is about to end and teams from all of Europe are speculating on their chances to sign players they need.

Here, Sport360 brings you the latest news on some of Saturday’s biggest transfers.

MEMPHIS DEPAY (Manchester United to Lyon)
DONE DEAL – £16m (Dh72.6m)

Having featured for just eight minutes since October, the Dutch forward’s torment at Old Trafford has ended with a fresh start in France. Depay is still only 22 and, given Lyon’s reputation for developing players, this could be a fine move.

JOSE FONTE (Southampton to West Ham)
DONE DEAL – £8m (Dh36.3m)

West Ham have been throwing money around to try and buy a striker but have landed a veteran defender instead with Fonte’s contract impasse at Saints leading to an exit. At 33, he offers plenty of experience but perhaps not much longevity.

SAIDO BERAHINO (West Brom to Stoke)
DONE DEAL – £12m (Dh54.5m)

The winter window wouldn’t be complete without a Berahino rumour or 10 but the striker has finally got his wish with a move away. The fee includes add-ons but is considerably lower than the value placed on him 12 months ago.

GERARD DEULOFEU (Everton to AC Milan)
DEAL AGREED – LOAN

The Rossoneri have agreed to sign the Spanish forward on loan until the end of the season but the transfer is yet to be confirmed by Everton. Deulofeu has found himself frozen out by Ronald Koeman after a series of ineffective displays.

MAHMOUD DAHOUD (‘Gladbach to Barcelona)
INTEREST

The Syrian-born midfielder is a long-term target of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp but Barcelona have reportedly been scouting the 21-year-old. Gladbach have also opened contrack talks but if Dahoud is to leave, it will be more likely in the summer.
