Saudi Arabia has identified two Premier League stars as targets for the January transfer window

Man Utd winger Jadon Sancho and Spurs striker Richarlison have been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia in January.

The Saudi league is already preparing the winter transfer window and making plans on how much money each club will have to spend.

Last summer, 13 Premier League players decided to move from England to the Middle East. Among them were Liverpool trio Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, Manchester City duo Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte, as well as former Newcastle player Allan Saint-Maximin.

They also spent big bringing in Neymar and one of the best talents in the world, the Spaniard Gabriel Veiga.

According to The Telegraph, Saudi officials have identified long-term targets and their list includes the likes of Mohamed Salah and Heung-min Son, but a deal for the duo in the January transfer window will be difficult to achieve.

Salah is in the midst of a fine season for Liverpool and Son has become Spurs’ main man under Ange Postecoglou following the departure of Harry Kane to Germany.

So they have turned their attention to Jadon Sancho. The 23-year-old has not played since September after a dispute with coach Erik ten Hag.

Meanwhile, fellow target Richarlison has undergone surgery due to an injury. The Brazilian hasn’t played much under Postecoglou since the arrival of Brennan Johnson.

It remains to be seen how Arab clubs will act in the transfer window, but one thing is certain, they will not stop there.
