The Final Countdown: 2012 Winter Transfer Window

Let Gio go, Spurs. Please!

The European transfer window closes at midnight on January 31. Villarreal has not confirmed any moves to its 'A' team, aside from the promotion of Gonzalo Castellani. The 'B' team has seen significant changes, with a number of players moving on and the arrival of Argentine midfielder Fernando Barrientos.

Brazilian striker Nilmar's long-rumored move to São Paulo FC may have hit a snag, while Mexican international Giovani dos Santos may remain at Tottenham Hotspur. Other names have emerged to reinforce our depleted strike force-- particularly with the injury to Marco Ruben-- while further departures appear unlikely. But Srs. Roig and Llaneza have been known to spring a surprise or two in the final hours. Ikechukwu Uche over the summer, for one.

Rumored targets:

Out: Nilmar (São Paulo), Borja Valero (Atlético Madrid, Málaga).

In: John Carew (West Ham United), dos Santos (Tottenham), Vicente Iborra (Levante), Alejandro Martinuccio (Fluminense), Uche (Granada), Nikola Zigic (Birmingham City).
