The Premier League's January transfer window has set up a fascinating football season after clubs went looking to outdo each other.
There were a number of notable deals as struggling players tipped for success wanted away from their clubs for a fresh start.
Liverpool, who hope to help their slim title chances, secured the signing of Porto's Luis Diaz for £37.5m.
The Reds hope to track down Manchester City, who themselves brought in Julian Alvarez from Argentine side River Plate, before loaning him out again.
Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa stole the show with marquee signing in the form of mercurial attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho and left-back Lucas Digne.
Saudi-backed Newcastle splashed the cash as they look to avoid relegation from the Premier League under manager Eddie Howe, while one of football's feel-good stories saw Christian Eriksen move to Brentford on a six-month deal.
Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during Euro 2020 last summer.
Here is our full rundown of the January transfer ins and outs.
