Liverpool was a clear winner in the January transfer window
Starting off with the winners, we've certainly got start with the Reds. It goes without saying, but the team has had a nightmare with injuries this year, as both star center-backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are lost for the season with knee injuries.
Thankfully, Liverpool went out and was able to get deals done with CBs Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak. While Liverpool might be out of the title hunt right now, these additions will really help them out the rest of the way.
Elsewhere, Arsenal was also a winner, as the club finally able to get things settled with Mesut Ozil. The German midfielder has left London and now suits up for Fenerbache in the Turkish league. The drama associated with Ozil was a nightmare. Now that he's officially gone, the rebuild can really begin for the Gunners.
It was a rough transfer window for Tottenham and the Manchester clubs
As for the losers of the window, we've got to bring up Tottenham. The club was linked with several players to come in to try and help Jose Mourinho out, but they didn't end up landing anyone. On top of that, there was constant drama with whether or not Dele Alli would stay or go on loan to PSG. Alli stayed put.
With Manchester City, they may be in first place of the EPL table, but they failed to bring in a striker. Sergio Aguero's contract is about to expire later this year and they are yet to find his replacement. While they can take care of business in the summer, the hope was they'd have things figured out by now.
As for Man United, the club was heavily linked to Ecuadorian phenom Moises Caicedo, but the midfielder ended up joining Brighton instead. Down the road, the United front office may regret this, as Caicedo has been coined as the best prospect from South America in quite some time.
