The Soccer window in which European soccer clubs are allowed to bargain among themselves - either to buy or sell players is here once more. Today, we take a look at four most anticipated winter moves.

Most businesses have bureaucratic structures and processes of their day to day running and management. Soccer like many of those, has its own intricacies. "Moving" has to be one of it. Players everywhere in the world are bound to move from one club to another at certain times of their soccer careers. This could be as a result of any disinclination ranging from low pay, a realistic chance to win some silverware, a fall out with a team manager and/or teammates, etc.

As such, at any point in time soccer players are virtually on the move. It's a "moving" career so to say.

Top four impending moves

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho tops the list. Coutinho's impending move to the Spanish side is no more news. Barcelona, stands, as an admirer of the Brazilian ace and were reportedly turned down on three different occasions last summer in their attempt to get him signed up. Liverpool was just unwilling to do business then. Partly, due to their ambitious aim of wanting to do really well in the UEFA Champion's League.

Besides, they are financially buoyant, at least, to some degree. But it seems Coutinho is fixated on moving to the Spanish club and it appears the manager can't just stop him this time.

To confirm this, in a recent press conference, Jurgen Klopp, the gaffer, said he was quite "unsure." Now, another chance presents itself again once and as expected, Barcelona will be back for him this soccer window. They will be required to "cough" in the region of £195 million to get their man.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez was widely expected to cut ties with the North London club and get signed up either for Manchester City or Bayern Munich.

The German club had cooled their interest. Now, it appears he is headed to Man City. Arsenal might have to cash in on Sanchez this very transfer window because not doing so would mean losing a player of his quality on a free transfer in about five months time.

Having returned from a lengthy recovery from a knee injury, Danny Rose (27), was said to have fallen out with his manager.

Mauricio Pochettino, on his part, was swift to laugh it off, maintaining that the feud is nonexistent and that Rose remains a vital and integral part of his young squad. Presumably, this must have spurred the Manchester United who are keen to sign the England International. Spurs are said to value Rose at £48 million price tag. United are without a natural Left Back save injury prone Luke Shaw and as such, £50 million may not be too much to ask for a top, fine player as Danny Rose.

Arsenal and Riyad Mahrez

Arsenal continues to flaunt their interest in Riyad Mahrez, according to the Metro. But, so far, they have failed to make any official bid for the Leicester City player. This could be down to two factors; one, Mahrez's performance as of late hasn't been impressive enough or perhaps the Arsenal board is waiting to see how the Alexis Sanchez's case unfolds.There's no telling with certainty why Arsenal just won't make a move.

AS Roma were supposedly keen on his services too, but communication broke down midway as a result of the £39 million asking price from Leicester City. If he moves, to Arsenal or any other club, we could stake a claim it was a move long overdue. At the moment, the 27-year-old is showing glimpses of the man the fans knew him to be in Leicester's title-winning campaign two seasons ago. And he has brought back those fun memories to the Leicester faithfuls. Could this upturn in recent weeks enough to help his cause? January should tell.
