01/19/2019 07:15:57With several European teams in contention for a place in the Champions League this summer, the Premier League is set to be the first major competition to test the potential of young talent.
But with the likes of Bournemouth and Newcastle already vying for places in the top flight, which European clubs are the most likely to attract the most top-flight talent in the coming years?
The Premier League’s transfer market is already full of promising young talents.
In fact, according to Transfermarkt’s latest data, over the last two years, more than half of the clubs in the competition have managed to sign new talent, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool among the big names in this regard.
Despite that, there are still several clubs who could use the injection of talent.
As always, the big question is which ones are going to be in the best position to land it.
The Premier Leagues top-four clubs in terms of transfer fees:Bournemouth: £8.7m (€11.2m)Real Madrid: £10.2M (€13.5m)Manchester United: £12.6M ($15.6m)Arsenal: £14.5M ( $17.3m)Newcastle: £16.5 – £20M ( €21.4m – €24.5 million)Leicester City: £19.3M ( £23.7 million)Tottenham Hotspur: £21.3 – £25.4M (£30.5-30.9 million)Manchester City: -£25.2 – £35.8M ( £40.4-50 million)Lionel Messi: £30.8m ( €37.5million)David Villa: £34.9m ( $46.4million)Sergio Aguero: £37.9million ( €46.3million)Cristiano Ronaldo: £40.2million (€50 million)-£40 million (€51 million)Arsenal’s transfer fee table is not a surprise to anyone who follows the Premier Leights transfer market.
In 2014, the club spent £22.3 million on 18 players.
That was followed by the signings of Lukas Podolski, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Song, Nacho Monreal, Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez.
Bournemporay and Newcastle are two of the biggest names in the current transfer market, while Sunderland, Sunderland, Stoke and Swansea have all signed big names this summer.
Of course, there is a lot of money on offer.
The big money signing in the summer is Romelu Lukaku, who has reportedly signed a five-year deal worth £30million.
Other big names that have been linked with moves to Bournempulay include Monaco’s Alexandre Lacazette, Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos, Real Madrid’s Dani Alves, Paris Saint-Germain’s Mario Mandzukic and Barcelona’s Luis Suarez.
Despite all that, the transfer market could still see a few problems.
With Chelsea reportedly interested in signing Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko, Bournet’s new signing Gabriel Paulista could be a big hit.
The striker has also been linked to Barcelona and Arsenal.
In the meantime, Bruges and Newcastle may have to fend off the competition of Marseille, Nice, Ligue 1 and Ligue 2.
In addition, there could be some big shocks in the transfer window.
In terms of the likes and dislike of players, there may be a certain level of interest in Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic and Arsenal’s Theo Walcott, who are currently battling for places at Arsenal and Bournewell.
Meanwhile, the arrival of Real Madrid midfielder Gareth Bale could be the deciding factor in whether or not Chelsea can sign him.
With the likes Ofir Vlassic, Pepe and Carlos Tevez in the mix, it may be difficult for the club to convince the 21-year-old to stay, even if the likes Bale, Alves and Sanchez all have the potential to become big talents.
The new Premier League season will begin on Wednesday, July 19, with the first group stage games taking place on Saturday, July 21.
