The winter transfer window in European football closed yesterday. It remained open for the whole of January month. But a lot has happened on the last day of this window. Dele Ali has left Tottenham Hotspur and Aubameyang is set to sign for FC Barcelona. On the other side, Christian Eriksen has returned to the English Premier League.

Dele Ali to Everton

Dele Ali, the English midfielder, joins Everton on the Deadline Day of the January transfer window. Everton have reached an agreement with Tottenham for this player. The Toffees have to pay €40 million to the Spurs for  Ali. His contract with Everton is to stay for two and a-half-year in this club.

However, Ali joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2015 for only 5 million euros. In his seven years at the Spurs, Dele Ali made 269 appearances, where he scored 67 goals in all competitions for this club.

A few days back, Everton appointed Frank Lampard, the former manager of Chelsea, as the new coach. After taking charge of this club,  Lampard convinced Dele Ali to join the Toffees. He also signed Donny Van de Beek on a loan move from Manchester United.

Aubameyang leaves Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally leaves the English club, Arsenal. He has signed for FC Barcelona as a free agent.  On Monday, Aubameyang arrived in Spain and completed his medical test. In 2018, Auba joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund.  There he played 163 matches and scored 92 goals for the Gunner. However, the relationship between the club and the player wasn’t going well. Moreover, the 32-year-old didn’t play a single game for Arsenal since December 6. In addition, Arsenal wanted him to leave this window.  As a result, they allowed Aubameyang to join Barca as a free agent.

Christian Eriksen Returns!

The Danish midfielder Christian Erikes is coming back to the English Premier League. Most importantly, he is returning to football just seven months after the cardiac attack while playing for Denmark in Euro 2020. In 2013, this Danish player joined Tottenham Hotspur from Ajax. In his 226 appearances,  Eriksen scored 51 goals for the Spurs.

After playing seven years for the Spurs, he joined the Italian side, Inter Milan, in 2020. But he couldn’t play many games for Inter Milan. After the cardiac attack, Inter Milan couldn’t keep him in the club because Italian rules do not allow someone to play with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD). As a result, Eriksen leaves Inter and has joined Brentford FC.
