As the summer transfer window approaches players are linked with clubs every day.
Football Ticket Pad has picked out five players who we would love to see plying their trade in the English top flight next season, all of whom have been heavily linked with big money moves:
Zlatan Ibrahimovic: The nomadic Swede has been widely rumoured to be Jose Mourinho’s first signing at Manchester United having already publicly declared he will be leaving French Champions, Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The 34-year old has had a stellar career which has included Barcelona, AC Milan and Juventus. A transfer to the Premier League seems likely for the striker who has been destined to come to England for many years. Ibrahimovic would cost a hefty fee and his monumental wages may prove to be a potential stumbling block for a player coming towards the end of his career. Rumoured destination: Manchester United
Alvaro Morata: Reports in Italy suggest that the Juventus striker is set to be sold back to Real Madrid once they activate a buy-back clause in his contract worth £23.6 million after selling him to Juventus in 2014. However, Real are then expected to sell him on once more with Arsenal leading the race to sign the striker who has starred in Serie A. Rumoured destination: Arsenal
Raphael Varane: The £30 million rated defender has fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabeu under Zinedine Zidane and Jose Mourinho will be keen to secure a quality centre back partner to play with Chris Smalling. Mourinho rates Varane highly after signing him from Lens in 2011 to form part of his Real Madrid side when the Portuguese was in charge. Rumoured destination: Manchester United
Radja Nainggolan: Radja Nainggolan looks more and more likely to be Antonio Conte’s first signing at Chelsea and the Roma midfielder is edging towards London with a £31 million transfer. The Belgian midfielder has insisted he is staying in Serie A but Chelsea will be able to offer a significant pay rise to his current £50,0000 per week wages at Roma. Conte is keen to add the combative midfielder as he goes about transforming Chelsea in his first season at the club once he takes over after Euro 2016 this summer. Rumoured destination: Chelsea
Alexandre Lacazette: The Lyon striker surprisingly missed out on a place in France Euro 2016 squad, however that has not put off teams from trying to secure his signature for next season. West Ham had a £31 million bid rejected and the 2015 French Player of the Year has issued a desire to play in the Champions League if he is to leave the french club. Tottenham Hotspur have also expressed an interest in Lacazette in the past and the 24-year old has recently expressed his desire to play in England. Rumoured destinations: West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur
