Five players who may make a 2015 Premier League appearance
Fancy speculating on the next two transfer markets? Well, here you can have a bit of fun. With football now as unpredictable as ever, we have learned over the past couple of years that players can end up anywhere.
Who would have thought Alexis Sanchez would be playing at Arsenal, Cesc Fabregas would move to Chelsea, and Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid to Manchester United.
Coral presents you with five players who could move to the Premier League in the next year, along with odds on them doing that, in case you fancy a flutter.
The Uruguayan is being offered at odds of 6/4 to make a Premier League appearance next year, and a number of clubs have been linked, most notably and recently, Arsenal. It is reported that the PSG forward asked his employers to lower his asking price by £10m to make him more affordable. As it stands, he is now thought to be valued at around £40m, and the Gunners should pounce now if they want him.
Understood to be the subject of much interest from former club Man Utd, Pogba is also reportedly being lined up as a replacement for Yaya Toure at Manchester City. He has odds of 4/1 to move to the Premier League, and he can use this as a platform to become one of the best central midfielders in world football.
He very nearly moved to Arsenal before joining Napoli, and he is still only 27 years old. While it is hard to imagaine the Italian club selling him, he still has odds of 2/1 to appear in the Premier League this year. If he no longer fits in Rafael Benitez’s plans, it could be an option and Liverpool would snap him up.
Former coach Jose Mourinho may run the rule over the striker if he became available, with the Frenchman 11/4 to make a Premier League move in 2015. Real Madrid always tend to revamp their striking department every couple of years, and at 27 the player still has quality.
An interesting outsider at 25/1, although the Spaniard only joined Bayern Munich last summer, he may grow frustrated at the lack of opportunities with youngsters coming through, and the German club constantly buying new players. He would have no shortage of suitors if he became available and at 33 can still do a fantastic job.
