Neville explains this winter transfer window phenomenon
Sky Sports expert Gary Neville explained Premier League clubs’ low activity in the winter transfer window.
The clubs of the top English division spent only £140 million on transfers last month. For comparison, this figure was £465 million a year ago.
In total, only seven Premier League clubs spent money in January, and Neville explained that by inadequately overpriced players.
According to Neville, everyone wonders why Arsenal didn’t acquire defenders and why Tottenham didn’t buy anyone to replace injured Harry Kane. But the reality is that there are simply no available players for these clubs and this is a real problem.
European clubs are putting extremely high prices on their players in January, especially when it comes to transfers to England. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that both clubs couldn’t strengthen in January.
Gary is sure that if such an opportunity existed, then Arsenal and Tottenham would certainly take advantage of it.
