Biggest deals of transfer deadline day January 2018

As we all know, Wednesday night saw the January transfer window shut. There was the usual hive of activity on the last day of the winter transfer window. Here are some of the biggest deals done on the latest transfer deadline day:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund to Arsenal, £60m)

The Gabon international striker has reportedly been a transfer target for the last few transfer windows. The Gunners have now finally got their man.

Aubameyang has been one of the most prolific strikers in the European game over the last few seasons. Since joining BVB from Saint Etienne in 2013, the striker has scored 98 goals in 144 appearances, an impressive strike-rate for any striker.

Lucas Moura (PSG to Tottenham, £25m)

The Brazilian international completed his move from the French capital to the English capital for an undisclosed fee reported as £25million by most media outlets.

Moura has not quite lived up to expectations in Paris. However, at 25-years-old the Brazilian international still has time to fulfil his undoubted potential, especially under the guidance of Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Olivier Giroud (Arsenal to Chelsea, £15m plus £2m in add-ons)

The France international made the move across London to Stamford Bridge after Arsenal signed Aubameyang. Giroud has been a bit-part player at Arsenal in recent seasons.

However, the 31-year-old has scored some vital goals for the Gunners from the bench. Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was desperate to add to his attacking options in January. In Giroud, the Blues have a striker who has Premier League experience and can be a very useful player on his day.

Andre Ayew (West Ham to Swansea £18m)

The Ghana international returns to his former club after just 18 months at West Ham. The forward cost the Irons £30million from the Swans, so they have certainly lost out on the deal.

Ayew joins his brother Jordan at the Welsh club, who will be hoping that the two talented Ghana internationals can fire them further up the table.
