There will once again be plenty of ins and outs in this summer before the live football action in the Premier League resumes, as clubs hope to close the gap on Manchester City, who themselves will be looking to stay on top.
Both City and Manchester United have been linked with a move for the talented Belgium youngster Eden Hazard, who looks set to leave Lille this summer.
The midfielder has intimated that he will be arriving in the Premier League ahead of the next campaign but it will be a question of who can offer him the best deal and the most football out of the Citizens and the Red Devils.
In a move between two English clubs, it looks like Emmanuel Adebayor will make his loan deal from City to Tottenham Hotspur a permanent one, having impressed manager Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane last term.
The former Gunner settled in well to the attacking football with the Lilywhites and they would do well to secure the striker on a full-time basis, with players of his quality hard to come by in today’s transfer market.
With Blackburn Rovers dropping down into the Championship next season, there will be a few stars set to leave the Ewood Park outfit to continue their careers in England’s top flight.
Experienced goalkeeper Paul Robinson has been linked with both QPR and West Ham United, whilst striker Yakubu and David Hoilett are also being tracked by potential suitors.
There will be plenty of deals done this summer, with several Premier League betting markets speculating on the destination of several stars.
