There are big clubs and high-profile names in the conversation on Transfer Deadline Day as clubs across Europe make the final push to bolster their squads ahead of the final five months of the season.

Arsenal are chasing Jorginho as a midfield back, PSG are desperate to sign Hakim Ziyech, Chelsea are making a push for Enzo Fernandez, and there’s talk of Manchester United acquiring a midfielder. All this leaves for plenty of loose ends to wrap up before the window closes in Europe.

Outside of a few, the top European leagues will see the secondary winter transfer window shut on January 31, but that’s not the case for other countries. 

From Europe to the MLS and the A-League, here are the dates (and times) your favorite club needs to complete transfers by this winter.
