The summer transfer window has been shut and clubs can no longer engage themselves in any transfer business until at least in January when the winter transfer window will be open. The summer transfer window was a big chance for clubs to sign their favored transfer targets as there was enough time for them to have all the negotiations they want to engage themselves in. However, even though a lot of clubs managed to sign a couple of players this summer, some of them are still looking forward to January and next summer to further sign more players, with some clubs looking to continue their rebuild projects while others may be forced to venture into the market if they suffer any serious injury crisis.
