Raheem Sterling, Morgan Schneiderlin, Robin van Persie and Bastian Schweinsteiger won’t be the only big names moving in the Premier League, if transfer gossip is to be believed.
In Spain, Sport are reporting that Chelsea want Barcelona star Pedro, with a £22m bid lined up by Jose Mourinho to trigger a buy-out clause.
Liverpool are keen to replace Sterling with Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev, again with £22m at stake, according to the Sunday People.
Manchester United’s Jonny Evans could be on his way out of Old Trafford, with the Telegraph saying Arsenal are favourites for the Northern Ireland international’s signature.
Should that deal not materialise, West Brom are said to be waiting in the wings.
The David de Gea saga may be closer to a conclusion, with Real Madrid shifting legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas to Porto to make room.
Napoli are prepared to sell Gonzalo Higuain to Arsenal, but the Daily Express believe the Gunners will have to stump up £64.7m to meet his buy-out clause.
