Carrying on from part one of our article about improving the depth of quality in our top league, we have more names that are being linked with some of the Premier Leagues top clubs. These players coming over from foreign leagues could help to improve on a poor showing in the top European competitions by English clubs last season.
The prolific Argentinian has worked wonders for Napoli since leaving Real Madrid, and has been linked with a move to their city rivals. However with them looking good for Jackson Mrtinez, a move to the Premier League could be top of his list of options. Arsenal and Manchester Utd both hold a long standing interest and could do with a boost to their own fire power, both to improve in Europe, and domestically.
The experienced German has been talked about as somebody who could link up with former boss Van Gaal at Manchester Utd. The Dutchman needs an experienced central midfield option to develop what he already has, and offer support to Michael Carrick’s weary legs. He is a genuine world superstar and has won everything at both international and club level. Taking another stalwart from a foreign leagues top team would be another huge statement, and strengthen the Premier League hugely.
Bacca has been a sensational player for Sevilla, spearheading back to back Europa League triumphs. He is now reportedly keen on a move to the Premiership and could be lining up for Liverpool or Manchester Utd next season. It would be another coup for the Premiership taking one of Spain’s hottest properties, and a man proven on the continental stage.
The young Belgian was a bit of a no show at Chelsea, and was not really given a fair crack at the whip. He was moved on for decent money but has lead a revolution at Wolfsburg and seen them emerge as a genuine challenge to Bayern Munich. The German side are now desperate to keep hold of him as Manchester City circle looking to tempt him back. He would have plenty to prove in England and would no doubt add a new edge to Manchester City and their quest to make a bigger impact in the Champions League.
