There are more and more transfers in women’s football as more resources are put into the clubs, although the January window is usually quieter than the summer one. Still there are exciting title races to be had in the WSL, Division 1 Féminine, Frauen-Bundesliga while in Serie A Femminile Juventus are running away with the title, as are Barcelona in the Primera Iberdrola.
Across Europe there are relegation battles to be had and Champions League places to be won. In the Women’s Super League, will Arsenal try to halt their slide by making signings? Hope Powell’s Brighton have already brought in two Sweden internationals in Emma Kullberg and Julia Zigiotti Olme.
Italian clubs have already been active with Fiorentina bringing in three players in the opening days of the window, Ronja Aronsson, Valentina Giacinti and Verónica Boquete all joining while Martina Piemonte has left the club.
In the Division 1 Féminine it has been quieter so far with mainly outgoings at the top clubs, such as Lyon and PSG, while the clubs at the bottom of the table, Issy and St Etienne, have yet to make acquisitions.
