Five World Cup Stars Who Could Be On The Move

Five World Cup Stars Who Could Be On The Move

These five players starred at the World Cup and are short prices to be on the move this summer.

Yerry Mina

Everton have made their interest clear and they are as short as evens to sign the Colombian defender. He may have been facing a hostile reception should he arrive on Merseyside, after his towering header to equalise in the dying seconds nearly broke English hearts. Luckily for him, we somehow prevailed in a penalty shootout.

Barcelona have been looking to offload at least one non-EU player this summer to free up space in their squad. Brazilian Paulinho is already on his way back to China and if they don’t see a future for Mina at the club, he could be next. He is 6/4 to go to Everton whilst Liverpool, Fenerbahce and Chelsea are 5/1, 9/1 and 10/1 respectively.

Willian

One of the few players to come out of Chelsea’s season with any credit, the winger faced little competition for his place in the Brazil starting line-up after Douglas Costa was ruled out of the early matches through injury. The 29-year-old was underwhelming during the tournament, registering one assist, but he is still being heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge (1/2).

Barcelona reportedly have already had a large bid rejected for the winger, and the bookies make the Spanish champions the favourites to sign him at best price 5/4. Another club he has been heavily linked with is Man Utd. Jose Mourinho, the man who brought him to the Premier League, is keen to team back up and the Red Devils are best price 5/2 to sign Willian.   

Kasper Schmeichel

The son of the great Dane Peter Schmeichel did his father proud at the World Cup. His heroics in the Round of 16 against Croatia may have been in vein, but the 31-year-old stopper could leave Russia with his head held high, and he will have certainly gained many more admirers.

Chelsea are now 9/4 to sign the 2015/16 Premier League winner, as they are wary of losing Thibaut Courtois abroad and look to strengthen their options in net. Liverpool are also a team linked, with their number one Karius enduring a rough ride ever since his Champions League final howler. Schmeichel is 12/1 to make the move to Anfield .  

N'Golo Kante

N’Golo Kante has once again proved himself to be one of the most valuable members of the France team. His tenacity, speed and agility in the centre of the park is unrivalled and he is one of the key reasons France are in the final and have kept four clean sheets in six matches.

The Ligue 1 Champions are known admirers of the player and they have been expected to make an approach all summer. PSG are even money to sign Kante but the midfielder is a fan favourirte and it would be very difficult to prise him away. He remains 8/11 to stay put in West London.

Toby Alderweireld

Belgium had a good run to the semi-finals and centre-back Alderweireld managed to keep the French attack at bay in open play, but they were undone from a corner and Les Bleus managed to keep it tight for the rest of the match.

Alderweireld has proved himself to be one of the best in the Premier League over the last few years and he is now in the last year of his contract with Spurs. It is unlikely they will keep him if he does not sign a new deal and Man Utd are clear favourites to sign him, as short as 1/2 and best price 8/11.
