The Young English Players for Euro 2016

Each summer we see huge amounts of money spent by the top clubs in England. Which means plenty of new faces when the Premier League begins. With the Euros now over, and footballers finally having a break until the season starts again in mid-August, rumours have begun to fly around about the current transfers.

This summer is no different, and already numerous signings have been made. Premier League champions Leicester have kept their spending to a minimum so far, acquiring a new keeper Ron-Robert Zieler from Hannover for just £2.98m and another centre forward, Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow for £16.58m. Transfers 1

Second place Arsenal have also been fairly quiet on the transfer scene so far. They’ve bought just one player: Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach for £38.25m. Spurs have made a couple of signings, including Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar and Victor Wanyama from Southampton.

The biggest transfer story of the summer so far has probably been Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He’s moved, for free, from PSG to Manchester United. Man United have also signed Eric Bailley from Villarreal, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund – with new manager Jose Mourinho keen to impressjimwatchesal
once again in the Premier League.

Other signings for Premier League clubs include Joel Matip of FC Schalke to Liverpool and Ilkay Gundogan of Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City, alongside Nolito from Celta de Vigo. Southampton have signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Bayern Munich and Nathan Redmond from Norwich, while Chelsea have signed Michy Batshuayi from Marseille.

Wales - UEFA Euro 2016 - 4th JulyAs always, transfer rumours are one of the more exciting parts of the summer transfer market. The most sought after man for the Premier League this year is Welsh international Hal Robson-Kanu. The 27-year-old was dropped by Reading at the end of last season, but after an impressive performance in the Euros, several clubs are keen to snap up the winger. Swansea, Hull, Everton, Southampton and Leicester are among the clubs which have shown an interest, and as Robson-Kanu is currently unattached, he appears to have the pick of the lot.

Other rumours include Julian Draxler being linked with Arsenal, while fellow German teammate Mario Gotze could be moving to their main rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. Paul Pogba has been linked strongly with Manchester United, and rumours have floated around about a transfer fee which could reach over £80m.


Meanwhile, Juan Mata’s future at Man Utd is up in the air, with Mourinho rumoured to be considering letting him go. Villarreal, Juventus and Everton have all shown some interest in him, so we may not be losing Mata from the Premier League just yet.

Chelsea have shown an interest in both James Rodriguez of Real Madrid and N’Golo Kante of Leicester, although Arsenal are also interested in Frenchman.

No matter which club you support, we’re sure to see some very influential signings in the Premier League for the start of the 2016/17 season. It’s really anyone’s guess who will be crowned champions in May of 2017. Can Leicester do the impossible again? Or will one of the Premier League’s old ‘top four’ return to form to win the title race.

The season starts again in just under a month on August 13th, with reigning champions Leicester kicking off the season at 12:30 against newly promoted Hull City. The transfer window closes two weeks later on Wednesday August 31st.

Be sure to tune in to watch all the Premier League stars, old and new, and find out if we’re going to have a season as shocking as the last one.
