Summer transfer window: five players likely to make big moves

Thursday, June 13, 2013

The new season might seem like an age away, but the world’s biggest clubs are already preparing to sign a few new faces well before the transfer deadline on September 1st. As is the case every summer, a select number of players are linked with multimillion Pound moves to the biggest and richest teams on the planet. To give you an idea of who might be moving, here are five top transfer targets:

Luis Suarez, Liverpool to?

The controversial Uruguayan might have plenty of baggage, but the fact that he has bagged so many goals in his time at Anfield should make him an attractive target for big clubs who, unlike Liverpool, are actually punching their weight. Liverpool want 50 Million for Suarez and a move to Bayern Munich has been mooted, although Atletico Madrid are looking to replace Falcao, and £30m should take him to the Vicente Calderon.

Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund to?

It was thought that the Polish ace, after enjoying two phenomenal seasons for the Champions League finalists, would follow team-mate Mario Gotze in moving to Bayern. However, it seems like that move has stalled. Manchester United could be the most likely destination, and the chance to play alongside Robin van Persie should appeal to him.

Victor Wanyama, Celtic to?

In a Celtic side which has dominated domestically in third gear, the Kenya midfielder’s passing and combative nature has caught the eye of Premier League sides looking for a bit of solidity in the middle of the park. Arsenal are likely to sign him, with a price tag of around £10m-£12m being sufficient, especially as he’s what they need.

Julian Draxler, Schalke to?

One of a seemingly never-ending line of exciting German midfielders, Draxler looks like he could be a world-beater in years to come. He will already command a hefty asking price upwards of £20m, but that shouldn’t put the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Chelsea off signing him.

Edinson Cavani, Napoli to?

He’s got Champions League football to look forward to should he stay, but Cavani looks like moving to one of Europe’s footballing superpowers. Chelsea, emboldened by the return of Jose Mourinho as manager are favourites for his signature, but Real Madrid have emerged as contenders. Napoli look to be planning for his departure by lining up Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla as a replacement.
