Premier League transfers: Who to watch out for in the summer window

Premier League transfers: Who to watch out for in the summer window

Julian Alvarez – striker, Manchester City

Since arriving at City two years ago, Alvarez has won the Treble, the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup, the Premier League this season and played in another FA Cup final. He has also won the World Cup with Argentina.

But the 24-year-old has never quite become a regular and with Erling Haaland as the established centre-forward, that is not going to change. Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich have already been mentioned as having an interest.

City are good at selling players. If someone hits the right figure, Alvarez could easily move on.

Christian Eriksen – midfielder, Manchester United

The sight of Christian Eriksen scoring a superb goal in the Parken Stadium for Denmark 10 days ago was a reminder it is only three years since the midfielder collapsed and we all worried if he was going to survive, let alone play again.

He excelled at Brentford and was outstanding in his first season at Manchester United. Last season though, he didn’t reach the same levels and the last of his 12 Premier League starts came in the 4-0 hammering at Crystal Palace on 6 May.

More than any other player, Eriksen knows his time in the game cannot be taken for granted and at 32, he may be more keen on spending time on the pitch rather than seeing out the final year of his contract.
