The Transfer Window officially closes in just over a week, we are now entering into the time period where teams will be rushing through signings to make sure they are completed before the deadline. The first round of Premier League fixtures would’ve paid dividends to a lot of managers Transfer plans on where they need to strengthen and where they are the strongest.
It has been a long Transfer Window so far, many moves, many hundreds of millions spent, but the spending is not just about to stop there. In this article we are going to look at 10 players who could be set for a Transfer Deadline Day move away from their club.
The big Spanish striker has made it clear he wants to leave Atletico Bilbao thus attracting a string of European clubs. The favourites are Juventus who seem to have been linked with pretty much every want away striker across Europe. However there has been a number of Premier League clubs also interested in Llorente, including Arsenal and Spurs. Spurs are another club who have pretty much been linked with every striker under the sun, however the asking price, wages and temptation of Champions League football will jeopardise Spurs’ move for him. Wenger has already stated he will not be replacing Van Persie, but if he was to pull a surprise move for Llorente, then it would be a fantastic acquisition for Arsenal.
My Prediction – Llorente to Juventus
Sky Bet Odds – Juventus 2/5, Spurs 3/1, Arsenal 7/1
Now what would the Transfer Window be like without ‘one of the best strikers in the world’ being linked with a move away from his current club. Well we are talking about Nicklas Bendtner and whilst he has grown a reputation for being a bit of an ignoramus, Bendtner would still be a quality striker for any club. Bendtner claims there is a lot of interest in him, however how true that is I’m not sure, surely he would’ve moved by now if that was the case. Clubs such as AC Milan, Galatasaray and a host of Premier League clubs have been linked with the Big Dane.
My Prediction – Bendtner to AC Milan
Sky Bet Odds – AC Milan 4/7, Galatasaray 7/2, Sunderland 5/1
The tall gangly Frenchman looked to have been set for a move to Arsenal, then speculation claimed Wenger was no longer interested and now further speculation has claimed Arsenal are back in for him for a lower asking price than before. Well certainly something is not going to plan otherwise Wenger would’ve signed M’Vila already. Spurs have been linked with the defensive midfielder as well as Manchester United. It does look like a two horse race between Arsenal and Spurs, a race that is set to go to the wire, especially if Tottenham sell Modric and have funds to play with.
My Prediction – M’Vila to Arsenal
Sky Bet Odds – Arsenal 4/9, Tottenham 13/8, Manchester United 16/1
Chelsea’s interest in Victor Moses is no secret, however the hold up in the deal would’ve raised some eyebrows. Claims suggest Chelsea are not matching Wigan’s valuation of the wide man. Chelsea would have got a further look at Moses as he impressed against them over the weekend. There doesn’t seem to be any other interested parties, it just comes down to whether Chelsea are going to meet Wigan’s demands and push this transfer through in time.
My Prediction – Moses to Chelsea
Sky Bet Odds – Chelsea 1/8
Edinson Cavani is another striker that has been linked with a host of clubs across Europe. After impressing in recent seasons for Napoli, Cavani has certainly become hot property. Chelsea, Manchester City, Juventus, Inter Milan and PSG have all been linked to the Uruguayan striker. However the front runners do seem to be Chelsea, City and Juventus. However City have enough strikers already, but with Aguero injury fears may be tempted into the market, Juventus seem too interested in Llorente, so that just leaves Chelsea. It all depends on whether Chelsea wants to match Napoli’s reported asking price of £32m.
My Prediction – Cavani to Chelsea
Sky Bet Odds – Chelsea 8/11, Manchester City 6/1, Juventus 7/1
The former Brazilian World Player of the Year has failed to hit the heights he reached at AC Milan. Real Madrid spent a small fortune bringing him to the club but injury and lack of playing time has hindered the Brazilian’s success. Kaka has thus fallen out of favour at Real Madrid and Mourinho has told Kaka he can move on. Not too many clubs would turn down the chance to sign Kaka, however his valuation and wages would come at a heavy price, a heavy price that not many clubs could afford. Speculation last week suggested United were seriously considering bringing Kaka to the club.
My Prediction – Kaka to AC Milan
Sky Bet Odds – AC Milan 5/6, Manchester United 5/6, PSG 20/1
Many people are suggesting that Agger has played his last game in a Liverpool shirt. After continuous speculation linking the Big Dane to Manchester City, it looks as though we could be seeing Agger in a City shirt next season. Daniel Agger is one of the best centre backs across Europe and was part of the Liverpool defence that really impressed last season. Barcelona have also been linked with Agger but after signing Song, who could provide defensive cover, signing Agger would be unlikely.
My Prediction – Agger to Manchester City
Sky Bet Odds – Manchester City 4/7, Barcelona 6/4, Real Madrid 13/2
Another striker that has been linked heavily with Chelsea this season, one minute it was reported the deal was signed, sealed and delivered, the next minute Chelsea had revoked their interest. Porto is asking for a huge transfer fee and is certainly testing Chelsea’s resolve. If this deal was to go through, I could see it being a huge deal being done right at the last minute of deadline day, it would be some move if it did happen.
My Prediction – Hulk staying at Porto
Sky Bet Odds – Chelsea 1/2
Clint Dempsey seems destined to wear the Liverpool shirt next season. However after the calamitous scandal of announcing the player on the owner’s website before a deal had been struck, it is clear the two clubs are someway apart at the moment. After Fulham’s 5-0 win at the weekend, they will be quite keen to keep Dempsey. However a move to Liverpool would be hard to turn down for the American, but Fulham certainly do not have to sell. Looks set for Deadline Day.
My Prediction – Dempsey to Liverpool
Sky Bet Odds – Liverpool 1/4, Arsenal 9/2, Everton 10/1
Speculation has surrounded Dzeko’s future especially around the time when City looked set to sign Robin van Persie. However now Van Persie has moved to the other side of Manchester Dzeko looks set to stay at City. However could City be tempted by an offer for Dzeko? AC Milan, Spurs and Juventus have all been linked with the Bosnian international, AC Milan being the favourites whilst trying to replace the void left by Ibrahimovic.
My Prediction – Staying at City
Sky Bet Odds – AC Milan 6/4, Tottenham 4/1, Juventus 8/1
