January is a crucial month where 18 of the teams that make up the Bundesliga open their safes and piggy-banks and break into the money that they have been saving for a rainy day.

Although the January transfer window in Germany is rather quiet in comparison to their English counterparts and in relation to the business usually done over the summer, each team will no doubt be trying to get players through the door.

While Bayern might only tighten their ranks by signing one or two promising youngsters, other traditional clubs such as Werder Bremen and VfB Stuttgart who are experiencing mixed fortunes at the bottom of the Bundesliga will be under pressure to take this window by the throat and secure the correct players to change proceedings.

It is quite impossible to suggest how much money will be spent this January in comparison to the lowly fee of just £34.5 million spent by Bundesliga clubs this time last year, we might either see a stick or twist scenario.

If we see the latter then it is inconceivable to suggest that at least one, or quite possible two of the traditional clubs will be relegated, but if club chairmen across the country are feeling rather generous then anything could happen.

From strengthening their squads, to keeping hold of their best players, this is what I think each Bundesliga side needs to do over the course of January.
