Although the Premier League season is already well underway, there is plenty of speculation about which players might be planning to switch teams in the coming months.
Danny Ings is one star who has been receiving plenty of interest from several clubs. The Liverpool forward struggled with an injury to his right knee for much of last season, and it seems as though the club may place Ings on loan in January 2018.
Crystal Palace have already expressed a firm interest in snapping up the striker. But with promising Championship clubs like Leeds United and Hull City also giving Ings plenty of attention, it seems as though he will definitely get a second chance after his devastating injury.
We’ve seen plenty of German stars like Mesut Ozil successfully making the switch from the Bundesliga to the Premier League. And it seems that Marco Reus could be the next German star to come the UK, as both Arsenal and Manchester United have hinted that they could give the Borussia Dortmund midfielder a Premier League home.
Similarly, it seems as though the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel could be lined up for replacing Ronald Koeman in the coach’s role at Everton. Whilst the club would have a lot to do in order to improve their odds to win the Premier League, it’s clear that they could use Tuchel’s managerial expertise.
Julian Nagelsmann is another Bundesliga coach who could be coming to the aid of a struggling Premier League club. The young coaching star was one of the best things that has happened to Hoffenheim in the past few years, but it seems that West Ham are making real efforts to prise Nagelsmann away in order to save their Premier League aspirations.
But it’s not just our struggling Premier League clubs who are getting caught up in some transfer fever. It’s almost inconceivable to imagine Tottenham without Harry Kane, but Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, has already put a price tag of over £200 million on the striker. Such a move would undoubtedly affect Tottenham’s chances in the Champions League as Kane has been highlighted as one of the key scorers in this epic footballing tournament.
Liverpool could be looking to boost their goalscoring power by signing the Paris St-Germain star forward, Julian Draxlerif. This could be part of a trade deal with the French side who have expressed an interest in taking Philippe Coutinho away from Anfield, although Barcelona have also made efforts to sign the highly rated Brazilian midfielder.
And whilst Arsenal fans await the outcome of Arsene Wenger’s meeting with the Arsenal board this week, they face the troubling prospect of losing Mesut Ozil next year. The German star has already hinted that he would only be interested in leaving to play for massive clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United.
All of which shows how the behind-the-scenes transfer speculation is almost as dramatic as the action that takes place on pitch.
