The Premier League is the richest league in Europe, where every team can spend more than other clubs from other leagues. Although some teams in the league spent money on more players this window, some of the big clubs did little to no signings. Some clubs offloaded more players than bringing in players.

Manchester City was one of the few big clubs to make a signing this transfer window. Man City signed Claudio Echeverri from River Plate for 14 million euros. City sends him back to River Plate on loan, and he will join the team next year. City loaned out Kalvin Phillips to West Ham United. Spurs were the busiest out of the top six clubs in the Premier League.

Tottenham brought in Radu Dragusin, Timo Werner, and Lucas Bergvall. They sent Alejo Veliz, Ivan Perisic, and Eric Dier out on loan, along with other young players like Djed Spence and Japhet Tanganga. Sergio Reguilon was loaned at Manchester United but was recalled to get sent out on loan again. Reguilon is now with Brentford on loan. Spurs legend Hugo Llrois left the club on a free after spending 11 years there.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United made no signings this January transfer window. Arsenal made little changes in the squad by sending three young players on loan. Liverpool did the same by sending players on loan, including Fabio Carvalho. Carvalho was at RB Leipzig, but his lack of game time in Germany caused the club to call him back. He was sent on loan to Hull City.

Chelsea and Man United sent many young players on loan this window. Chelsea sent Broja, Andrey Santos, Fofana, and Maatsen on loan. Man United let go of Jadon Sancho after a fallout between Sancho and Erik Ten Hag. Sancho returns to Borussia Dortmund and will likely return to Man United for next season unless BVB bids for him. Hannibal, Van de Beek, and Pellestri also left the team to go out on loan.
