Window Shopping: European clubs get prepared for winter spending

January is traditionally a crucial period in a club's season, with the transfer market opening for a month to enable teams to improve what they have or ship out unwanted players. 

So what can we expect in the winter transfer window? We asked our ESPN FC bloggers to predict how the market will work out for their side. 

A snippet is below; click on the team name for the full lowdown.

La Liga

Atletico Madrid: Fernando Torres is back but is his homecoming the right decision by Diego Simeone?

Real Madrid: How can you improve perfection? Madrid are expected to be quiet, unless they make their move for Marco Reus.

Barcelona: N/A. With the club in the grip of a transfer ban, they can't sign anyone in 2015.


Bayern Munich: Xherdan Shaqiri is heading towards the exit door -- but where is he going?

Borussia Dortrmund: Dortmund have been quick to act already this winter but more could follow.

Serie A

Juventus: The champions are after an attacker to lessen the burden on Carlos Tevez.

Inter Milan: An attacker from the Premier League is in Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini's sights.

AC Milan: A move to sign a forward from La Liga is agreed but what else will follow?

Roma: Signing players is all well and good -- but keeping one particular player at Roma this winter may be the priority. 

Ligue 1

Paris St-Germain: PSG have been linked with a whole host of players but could a big name exit the French champions?
