Five big names who could make Premier League moves

The Premier League now has some of the best players in the world, and this could only increase over the next couple of years.

This summer witnessed Alexis Sanchez make a switch to Arsenal, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas move to Chelsea, while Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria were among a number of stellar signings that moved to Manchester United.

With the Old Trafford faithful crying out for the club to make Falcao’s move permanent, Coral take a look a five other top stars that could make a move to the Premier League.

Edinson Cavani
The prolific Uruguayan striker is reportedly edging closer to move to Arsenal, 22/1 with Coral to win the Champions League, and his arrival at the Emirates would be a huge signal of intent from manager Arsene Wenger.

With 13 goals in 26 appearances this season for PSG, Cavani would certainly give the Gunners another dimension, though may bring to an end Lukas Podolski’s time in north London.

Paul Pogba
Hailed as the heir to Patrick Vieira, Manchester City are said to be lining up a move to bring him to the Etihad, as a long term replacement for Yaya Toure.

It would certainly be a contentious move for the former United player to make; however, the Juventus star is one of the most sought after midfielders in world football. A move back to Old Trafford could also be an option, though.

Gareth Bale
Rumours persist that the Welsh winger could be heading back to the Premier League, with United said to be interested.

Bale could well be the natural answer replacing Ryan Giggs, though Louis van Gaal plays a completely different system, and they only recently signed Di Maria. However, if Robin van Persie moves on, he could easily step into his shoes.

Kevin Strootman
This is a move that will probably happen, with Man Utd consistently and strongly linked.

Strootman would reunite with his former Netherlands boss, and slot effortlessly into United’s midfield. Roma are understood to be playing hardball over his fee, though the Red Devils could easily afford him.

Jackson Martinez
The Colombian forward, who replaced Falcao at Porto, is reportedly attracting the interest of Liverpool, who, with Daniel Sturridge injured, need someone who can put the ball in the net.

The Reds, 5/1 for a top four finish, could probably stretch to Martinez’s asking price which is thought to be around the £25m mark.
