January has always been a month some of the football clubs likes to strengthen their current square for the second half of the season. Especially for those that the big money club had come to hijack their key players off their own net. In other for a football club to maintain balance and maintain its position on the table, such a club has to bring in new legs to replace the outgoing players , those that are injured and above all to give competition to those that felt there are in the first team and are untouchable.

Which of the above players do you think didnt merit the move?
My answer to the above question is Olivier Giroud. From arsenal to chelsea at age 30, Dont think he will make any impact at 30.
