A number of England’s standout World Cup performers may be on the radars of Europe’s top clubs, but who’s being linked with a move?
Following a number of standout individual performances throughout England’s World Cup campaign, a few players might find themselves the target of a summer move. But which players are being linked to which clubs?
One of the standout performers for England during the tournament, Pickford is odds on (best-price 4/5) to join Man Utd before the end of the window. At 6/1 Bayern Munich are the second favourites to sign the Everton keeper. What a move that would be.
Injuries and Pickford’s club performances scuppered Butland’s chances of being England’s number one at the World Cup and with club side Stoke being relegated to the Championship, a transfer back to the Premier League seems imminent. Liverpool are the favourites at 4/7, with Arsenal and Chelsea in the frame at 6/1.
Rose’s opportunities were limited at Tottenham last season after he failed to force a move to Man Utd this time last year. It remains to be seen whether Mauricio Pochettino is willing to give him a clean slate this season but Man Utd (7/4), Everton (10/1) and Man City (12/1) are the front-runners.
Better known as ‘slab-head’, the national treasure has endured a meteoric rise throughout the World Cup with a number of commanding performances in defence. He is odds on to leave Leicester in the summer window and is likely to be on the radars of Tottenham (5/2), Man Utd (8/1) and Liverpool (10/1). If, rightly so, you think he could be the Galactico to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, you can get best price 100/1 on him joining Real Madrid.
Didn’t have the best World Cup, or club season for that matter, but is likely to be one of England’s most important players for years to come. Massively odds on to stay at Tottenham, but Barcelona and Real Madrid are the favourites for his signature at 10/1 and 16/1 respectively.
It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to RLC this summer. You’d think another loan move would be out the question following a cracking spell at Crystal Palace last campaign earning him a call up to the England World Cup squad. He’s 1/2 to stay at Chelsea, with a permanent move to Selhurst Park at 5/1 and Everton 9/1.
I’m not going to get into the argument of whether he had a good World Cup or not. He’s 1/8 to stay at Man City but will he still be a mainstay in Guardiola’s plans following the arrival of Riyad Mahrez? Real Madrid (10/1) are the favourites with Barcelona and PSG 16/1 respectively.
With a number of Leicester’s title winning side leaving or rumoured to be leaving this summer, it’s not out of the question that Vardy opts for pastures new. A move to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid is most likely according to the bookies at 6/1. Imagine a frontline of Vardy and Diego Costa…
He’s been linked to Real Madrid for a number of seasons now and unless they start winning trophies, a move away from Tottenham is a matter of time. He’s best-price 6/1 to be at the Bernabeu by the end of the window (as short as 2/1) and with Ronaldo’s move away from the club, the England captain could be the man to fill that void.
One of Man Utd and England’s brightest young talents but hasn’t flourished under Jose Mourinho’s negative tactics at Old Trafford. Still massively odds on to stay at United but Chelsea and rivals Man City aren’t out the question at 10/1.
