Enzo Fernandez

The headline story for the 2023 January transfer window has to be Chelsea’s decision to break the British transfer record, securing the signature of Benfica’s Enzo Fernandez for £107m just before Tuesday’s deadline.

Graham Potter’s side also brought in seven other players over the course of the month, with the spending under Todd Boehly showing no sign of abating. Crystal Palace did some late window activity by recruiting Arsenal’s Albert Sambi Lokonga on loan, while Leeds made a similar move for Juventus’s Weston McKennie.
