Biggest Summer 2022 Transfers Completed

  • Norwegian star Erling Haaland has confirmed he will be joining Manchester City over the summer! – The news took the footballing world by surprise when it broke out on the 10th of May. We were expecting a longer transfer saga over a player of such talent but it wasn't the case. Some betting sites are already issuing odds on Haaland's total goals next season. Some have even released the odds of him breaking the all-time Premier League goals record currently held by Alan Shearer!
  • Antonio Rudiger will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season and joining the Galacticos in Madrid.
  • Aston Villa have completed Philippe Coutinho‘s permanently move from Barcelona after the player joined Villa on loan in January 2022.
  • Karim Adeyemi is set to take Haaland's place at Borussia Dortmund as he leaves RB Salzburg for the fee of £32.5 million plus add-ons.

Round-Up of the January 2022 Transfer Window

The 2022 January transfer window was a very active one with loads of interesting deals being confirmed in the final few days, amid a lot of last-minute drama. Let's take a look at the biggest transfers, the biggest spenders and the where the players surrounded with the most speculation actually ended up.

The Biggest January 2022 Transfers

PlayerFromToTransfer Fee
Dusan VlahovicFiorentinaJuventus£69 million
Ferran TorresMan CityBarcelona£46.5 million
Luis DiazFC PortoLiverpool£38 million
Tanguy NdombeleTottenhamOlympique LyonLoan
Robin GosensAtalantaInterLoan
Anthony MartialMan UtdSevillaLoan
Bruno GuimaraesOlympique LyonNewcastle£35.5 million
Lucas DigneEvertonAston Villa£25 million
Dejan KulusevskiJuventusTottenhamLoan
Adama TraoreWolvesBarcelonaLoan

Other worthy mentions would be Bryan Gil being loaned out from Tottenham to Sevilla, Juventus buying Denis Zakaria from Borussia M'gladbach to replace Rodrigo Bentancur – who they sold to Spurs – and Donny van de Beek and Dele Alli‘s moves to Everton on loan and free transfer respectively. Lastly, there was also ex-Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who joined Barcelona as a free transfer on deadline day.

There are many, many more transfers we could mention; however, we'll just stick to the most prominent ones here.

Premier League Transfer Updates

  • The biggest total spend in England came from Newcastle United, one that came up to a figure of nearly £90 million. From Kieran Trippier, Matt Targett and Dan Burn at the back to Bruno Guimaraes in midfield and Chris Wood up front, the Magpies - along with their new owners - have invested in all areas of the field as they desperately try to get themselves out of the relegation spots in the Premier League table. As things stand at the moment, they've got the 4th worst attack and the 2nd worst defence, with a ratio of more than 2 goals conceded per match (only Norwich has conceded more goals). Things can only get better from here.
  • Aston Villa can say they had quite a decent January too with the signing of Lucas Digne and loan agreement for ex-Liverpool and Barcelona star, Philippe Coutinho. The fans at Villa Park will be eager to see the pair causing all sorts of trouble for the opposition down the left flank. Villa also brought in some reinforcements for their back line with Calum Chambers and goalkeeper Robin Olsen, who will do his best to challenge Emi Martinez for the place in goal.
  • Everton may have been sad to see Lucas Digne leaving, but they should definitely be excited to see what Vitaliy Mykolenko (Digne's replacement as left-back) and Nathan Patterson (right-back from Rangers) can bring to the side. Frank Lampard joined the Toffees in January, adding England international Dele Alli and Man Utd's unused midfielder Donny van de Beek. There is no doubt that both players possess the talents needed to be considered for any starting line-up, but now it's up to Lampard and his coaching staff (which now includes ex-teammate Ashley Cole) to get the best out of them. The addition of Anwar El Ghazi will give the manager another option for right-wing instead of Andros Townsend.
  • Liverpool signed the most expensive addition to the Premier League by signing Luis Diaz from FC Porto for £50. Other than that, they loaned out defenders Nathaniel Phillips (Bournemouth) and Neco Williams (Fulham). Not too much movement here.
  • Tottenham shuffled the players in their midfield by loaning out Tanguy Ndombele, Bryan Gil and Giovani Lo Celso and allowing Dele Alli to leave, while bringing along Juventus duo Rodrigo Bentancur (purchase for £15.8) and Dejan Kulusevski (loan). It seems sporting football manager Fabio Paratici helped out with a couple of good contacts in Turin.
  • Burnley acted solely on what was needed imminently. They sold their 1.91m striker Chris Wood to Newcastle for £25 million and bought 1.97m Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg for half the price. Weghorst scored 20 goals last year in the Bundesliga, with only the players like Lewandowski, Haaland and Andre Silva ahead of him. He might prove pivotal in getting Burnley out of the position they found themselves in at the end of January.
  • Last but certainly not least, Christian Eriksen has returned to the Premier League! After months of recovery since he collapsed on the pitch during the Denmark-Finland match at the EURO 2021, Eriksen has joined Brentford, with many eager to watch him play once again.

As for some of the bigger teams, there really wasn't anything too exciting going on.

  • Chelsea got Kenedy back from loan in Brazil.
  • Arsenal bought an American centre-back but allowed him to finish the season in the States. In the meantime, they let Kolasinac, Chambers and Aubameyang leave the club for free.
  • Leicester didn't buy any new players.
  • Manchester City secured ‘the next Aguero', Julian Alvarez, who will finish the season with River Plate. They also sold Ferran Torres for £46.3 to Barcelona, leaving City with a positive balance in the books for once in a while.
  • Manchester United bought no one and loaned out Martial (Sevilla), Diallo (Rangers) and van de Beek (Everton).
  • West Ham held back too.

La Liga Transfer Updates

  • After bringing Xavi on board as their new coach in November 2021, Barcelona have been trying to get back on track after starting the season on the wrong foot amidst all the drama surrounding the club. Come January, and the Camp Nou is now home to Ferran Torres (£46.3 million), Aubameyang (free), Adama Traore (loan) and Dani Alves (free) - at least until the end of the season. They are all very technically-gifted attacking-minded players, so one would hope that they can outweigh the goals conceded to help Barcelona climb back up the La Liga standings.
  • Valencia managed to secure Ilaix Moriba and Bryan Gil on loan from RB Leipzig and Tottenham respectively. A loss of form towards the end of January meant that they closed the January transfer market while sitting in the lower half of the table. It will be interesting to see if they can somehow work their way up into the European competition spots.
  • Getafe also managed to sign a few important deals to help them avoid the relegation zone and ensure they will be playing in La Liga next year. The most important deals were signed with Roma, convincing Jose Mourinho to allow Borja Mayoral and Gonzalo Villar to join Getafe on loan. They even managed to lure young Oscar Rodriguez to join them on loan from Sevilla, maybe with the promise of more game time as the only natural central attacking midfielder at the moment.
  • Midfield additions were also on Real Sociedad and Villarreal's minds. In fact, Sociedad signed a loan agreement with PSG for 28 year old Rafinha, while Villarreal Giovani Lo Celso in on loan from Tottenham.
  • Atletico Madrid sold Kieran Trippier to Newcastle and replaced him with Reinildo Mandava, a left-back from Lille, and Daniel Wass, the Danish right-back from Valencia. They also managed to keep their an overall transfer balance of around £8 million in the green.
  • Real Madrid bought and sold absolutely no one. Real Betis (currently 3rd) and Athetlic Bilbao also chose not to invest any money in January.

Serie A Transfer Updates

  • Juventus will be hoping they have found the missing link up front in Dusan Vlahovic to help them secure a top-4 finish and continue their Champions League knockout journey. The fact that they managed to hold on to both Paolo Dybala and Alvaro Morata means they now have more tactical options up front. They have also purchased Denis Zakaria, who will probably be one of the important players in midfield given the Old Lady has sold Bentancur, loaned out Kulusevski, and finally offloaded Aaron Ramsey.
  • Inter have won the services of Robin Gosens, who fits perfectly into Nerazzuri's side. This addition continues to strengthen a side which is already at the top of the table and which shows no signs of slowing down. Inter also brought Felipe Caicedo on loan from Lazio, where he acted as Simone Inzaghi's super sub in many occasions, coming off the bench and increasing the threat in the box with his fast pace and strength.
  • Giampiero Gasperini's Atalanta side was already known for its attacking football and it's only about to get worse for opposition defences since the Jeremie Boga has now joined the side on loan till the end of the season. Boga has got one of the highest rates of successful dribbles in Italy, ensuring that Atalanta is now a threat from any kind of play.
  • Elsewhere, the transfer window didn't offer many significant changes expect for Fiorentina, who brought in 3 attacking recruits to make up for Vlahovic's departure. Ikone, Basel's Cabral and ex-Milan striker Piatek will all be wearing the purple shirt for the rest of the season. It will be interesting to see whether they will manage to improve on the goals per game ratio.
  • Two final noteworthy transfers are Nadiem Amiri joining Genoa on loan from Bayer Leverkusen and Sergio Oliveira joining Mourinho's Roma from Porto. Both players are likely to have an impactful presence in the Serie A until the end of the season.

Other Transfer News

  • In Germany the market was fairly quiet, with most transfers being loan transfers or free transfers. Noticeably, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund had no new arrivals during the transfer window. Having said that, only days after the transfer window closed, Borussia Dortmund managed to sign Bayern Munich's central defender Niklas Süle as a free transfer and will join the team next June after his contract with Bayern expires. This is the highest valued free transfer Dortmund have ever managed to sign.
  • On the other hand, Bayer Leverkusen brought in Sardar Azmoun as a new centre-forward (from Zenit St. Petersburg) and Borussia M'gladbach got Marvin Friedrich on board to solidify a back line which seems to be struggling at the moment.
  • In France the situation was similar, with most moves being loan moves and free transfers. The best performer in the Ligue 1 was probably Olympique Lyon, who managed to get quite a hefty sum for Newcastle for Bruno Guimaraes and landed Tanguy Ndombele on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season. They also purchased an exciting left midfielder in Romain Faivre from Stade Brestois. He already has 7 goals and 5 assists in 22 games played this season, which are good numbers for a midfielder.
  • Other interesting transfers were Brazilian right-back Vanderson joining AS Monaco and 34 year old creative baller Hatem Ben Arfa returning to the Ligue 1 as a free transfer, this time wearing a Lille shirt.

What Is Football Player Transfer Betting?

Transfer windows, of which there are two in a year, allow football clubs to have the opportunity of bolstering their squads, or thinning an overcrowded and often costly one.

There are many factors that can lead to players looking to transfer to other teams. New managers may have come in, meaning former favourite players have fallen from grace. Alternatively, perhaps that game-changing new signing the club made three seasons ago wasn’t as game-changing as the club had hoped, leaving the chairman to cut their losses on some deadweight.

The gist here is that there are many reasons that players might look to transfer, from going up a level or deserting a sinking ship. What all this means to us, however, is that, apart from making the summer more exciting, it opens up a whole new betting market for us to get involved in.

Football transfer betting options provide you with an overwhelming amount of choice. Hardly the biggest problem you'll be faced with as a punter – but it is still something that needs navigating.

That is why we have compiled a list of what, in our expert opinion, are the eight greatest options in this market. Now, this does not mean that our top picks here will consistently have the best odds on the transfer market each and every time. No bookmaker can make that claim.

Paddy Power transfer markets, for instance, could have the best Arsenal transfer odds and Everton transfer odds, but be behind competitors on transfer Premier League markets elsewhere. The next transfer window could see them be best in an entirely different set of examples.

What we are saying is that just because one operator does well on one of the latest odds football transfer markets, that does not mean they will be best all around.

Our ranking is instead based on who we think have consistently provided the best betting experience for the football transfer windows, be that through player transfer odds, how the football transfer window is represented,  promotions like managers specials, and how it compliments everything else that is available on the site, to give some examples of our criteria.

And it is following that process we have come up with our finely tuned, carefully crafted, top bookmakers for football transfers.

Moreover, while odds may not be the only thing we consider when listing best bookmakers for the transfer Premier League and general player transfer market, we do understand they are of great importance.

So, although markets do fluctuate, and there is no clear and consistent best in the world in this regard, every single pick here does provide excellent odds in general. We take odds quality extremely seriously, and keep it at the forefront of our minds when making our ranking.

 

What Kinds of Football Player Transfer Betting Odds Can You Wager on?

From the Premier League to La Liga to Serie A and the Bundesliga, bookmakers are always quick to react to the latest transfer rumours which are rife over the season. Once you sort the silliness from the factual, you’ll have a whole new world of betting opportunities to pounce on. Perhaps this is why betting on player transfers in football has become increasingly popular over recent years.

Player transfer betting allows you to bet on a certain player, or manager for that matter, moving to a certain club, or simply leaving their current one. Other markets in this enjoyable field include to stay at the current club, which club a player will be at after the summer window closes, as well as which player will be at once the January window slams shut too.

Next Permanent Club Market Player Transfer Odds

 

Next Permanent Club Market

 

This is essentially betting on a player who, unless you know something no one else does, will already be in the news regarding a transfer to his next permanent club. This market lets you bet on the next team he will play for, but does not require you to nominate a particular transfer window when his move will occur.

Be sure to follow real journalists with strong club connections in order to get reliable updates. Remember, you can always bet on players NOT to move too, instead opting to stay put at their current club.

Next Club Signing Market Player Transfer Odds

Another way to look at transfer betting is to look at it from the signing team’s point of view. This is to say, bet on the next player to join a club, any club. So, if you have a hunch that player X will be the next big money signing through the doors at, say, Chelsea, then this is the bet for you.

To Break Transfer Record Market

A bet on this market would require you to successfully predict which club, either across the world or domestically, will smash through the existing transfer record within a designated time period.

For example, if you have read reports that Real Madrid has been persistent in their desired recruitment of a certain player, and that such a transfer would blow all others that have gone before it out of the water, then this is the market for that bet.

Why Bet On Football Transfer Odds?

Betting on football transfer specials isn’t only about scoring a big win and making a huge profit. There are also other reasons, such as:

It Makes the Close Season More Interesting

One very obvious aspect of betting on summer window transfers is that it can liven up the summer close season. This down time can be notoriously dull while we wait for August to begin, and following the transfer rumours is a very popular distraction.

Rumours Are Fun

That’s right – at the end of the day, following the transfer rumour mill can not only pay dividends, but provide you with lots of news and gossip to talk about and enjoy while waiting for the close season to end.

It Can Influence Your Future Football Betting

Transfer betting specials can also provide you with some much-needed inspiration for the incoming new season.

For instance, by following the transfer specials market over the summer, you may have become familiar with players who would be a good bet for Top Goal Scorer or Player of the Year. You may have read reports on how new players are likely to fit into a particular managerial philosophy and agree or disagree with the report’s findings. Use this to fuel your knowledge on the forthcoming season and carry on your hot streak from the summer into the season.

 

Football Player Transfer FAQs

That depends on the bet you've placed. If you simply bet on the player to move, then don’t worry, your bet is fine. If, however, you nominated a club and he joined an entirely different team, then you'll lose. Check out our detailed article which lists free betting tips for some more advice on strategy and how to place successful, winning bets.
Yes – with most top bookmakers, you always have the option of betting on a player not to move.
There sure is, and you can read more about it in our manager betting guide.
In some cases, yes. Obviously, these will not break any transfer records, but they still see a player move to his next permanent club. It's a good idea to bookmark a few football websites that specialise in analysis and stats so you can keep up-to-date with the latest transfer news.
Yes – for example, you could back player X to sign for “any Chinese club” or perhaps to play in Serie A next season. There really are lots of markets available, and many bookmakers also allow you to request bets, such as William Hill.

 

ThePuntersPage Final Say

Transfer windows may only come around twice a year – once in the summer and once after Christmas – but the constant media speculation never stops or takes a breath when it comes to rumours. Thankfully, what this means is that we are now able to bet on player transfers all season long, even outside of the windows. It’s a year-long open market. And why shouldn’t we enjoy it? Betting on transfer windows can provide a great opportunity to wager on players who are on the move – or even on some who aren’t, for that matter.

With so many bookies offering different football betting features, it can be a challenge to choose the bookmaker that is right for you – so we’ve done the work instead and ranked the best online football betting sitesSimply pick your favourite, sign up and have fun!
