The Premier League is coming to the end of another thrilling season but as we wave goodbye to Saturday fixtures we open the doors of the transfer window.

Here we look at some of the players that have been heavily linked with a transfer to England and could be lining up for a Premier League team come August.

Edinson Cavani | Napoli

The Napoli centre forward has impressed in the Italian league for a number of years and looks to be set to move away from the Naples based club. His impressive record this season of 23 goals and three assists in 30 games has made him one of the hottest striker in the world. 

He has attracted the attention from some of the biggest clubs in Europe including Manchester City. 

The 26-year-old has a release clause of £52 million and Manchester City will face stiff competition from PSG and Real Madrid for Cavani's signature. However, City may have stolen a march on their rivals as The Mirror claims that City have reached an agreement of personal terms with Cavani.

Chance of transfer: 4/5

Radamel Falcao | Atletico Madrid

Falcao is heavily linked with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and is also linked with City, Manchester United and Real Madrid. The Colombian however, looks set to become a Chelsea player and leave the Spanish capital for the London Capital. 

It would seem the vastly wealthy Roman Abramovich is doing everything in his power to bring Falcao to Stamford Bridge in the summer as well as Jose Mourinho. 

Roman would have to pay something in the realms of £40-50 million and may use their young 20-year-old on loan goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in a proposition and sweeten the deal. 

Courtois has spent two successful loan spells at the Spanish club. The 27-year-old forward has scored 25 times in 29 games for Atletico and the deal is looking eminently close to be agreed ready for the summer.

Chance of transfer: 4/5

Stevan Jovetic | Fiorentina

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Stevan Jovetic and are awaiting for Fiorentina to accept a bid believed to be £24 million so the deal can go through in the summer. 

The Montenegrin operates in a centre forward position and plays as more of a creative player than an out and out finisher.

The signing of the 23-year-old Montenegrin international would greatly improve Wenger’s attacking option's next term.

Chance of transfer: 4/5

Robert Lewandowski | Dortmund

Manchester United are interested in the Polish striker and have been for a while now, Lewandowski who has been in terrific form lately, scored four against Spanish giants Real Madrid. 

Recent speculation that Robert had agreed to join rivals Bayern with fellow Dortmund teammate Mario Gotze has been rubbished by the German champions who claim that no deal is in place. 

Chance of transfer: 3/5

Gonzalo Higuain | Real Madrid

Higuain has fuelled rumours that he is ready to leave the Spanish capital Madrid at the end of the season, which has put Tottenham and Arsenal on alert.

Tottenham would be more likely suitors for the Argentinean because of Tottenham and Real Madrid's partnership deal struck when Spurs sold Croatian midfielder Luka Modric to them in the summer of 2012. 

Gonzalo refused to commit his future to Real and told Spanish newspaper Marca: “I'm not going to talk about that now,” regarding his future at the Bernabeu. 

He later went on to say: “I can only say that I'm committed to the club and will help the team until the end of the season.” 

His father Jorge also admitted last season that a move to England would be “a great opportunity,” also linking his son to a move to the English top division. 

Higuain has become frustrated by playing second fiddle to fellow teammate Karim Benzema for a number of seasons despite outperforming the Frenchman this term. 

The Argentinean international has featured 16 times in Mourinho's side and converted 13 goals in La Liga this season.

Benzema has only managed nine goals this season in 15 appearances for the club in the league this term, this making the number nine's worst season at Real. 

The likelihood of Higuain joining Tottenham or even coming to the Premier League is slim, as no further speculation has developed.

Chance of transfer: 2/5
