While not every manager loves it, the January transfer window often throws up signings who prove to be the difference between a good and bad campaign at the end of the season.
Not every new striker turns out like Fernando Torres or Andy Carroll and as Djibril Cisse has already shown for QPR, new forwards can be an immediate success.
Here are three window signings who are good bets to score their first goals for their new clubs.
New customers using the free £25 bet they receive when they register with bwin would win an impressive ₤487.50 if all three get their names on the scoresheet.
Nikica Jelavic to score at any time for Everton v Wigan @ 7/5
The former Rangers striker already helped inspire Everton to a win over Manchester City on his unveiling and has promised “goals, goals and more goals” for his new side.
A debut visit to Wigan, who’ve lost five straight games and have the worst defensive record in the Premier League, offers a great opportunity for him to cash in on that promise straight away.
Papiss Cisse to score at any time for Newcastle v Aston Villa @ 3/2
Having broken Tony Yeboah’s Bundesliga goalscoring record for an African player, Cisse was set to arrive on Tyneside with a wave of momentum but Senegal’s shocking showing at the Africa Cup of Nations may have broken his stride slightly.
However, a reunion with international strike partner and Toon top scorer Demba Ba against a Villa side who’ve conceded six in their last four should give him the chance to get back on track with a debut strike in his new number nine jersey.
Jose Antonio Reyes to score at any time for Sevilla v Villarreal @ 9/4
After a career which never really lived up to expectations, the former Arsenal and Real Madrid striker has now returned to where it all began.
He scored 22 goals in his first spell at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to become a cult hero among Sevilla fans and will hope to recapture that form with a goal against the fast-sinking Yellow Submarines.
