Premier League stars set for potential exit

The summer transfer market is one of the most important parts of the year for football teams; clubs look to buy and sell while players look for pastures new. 

This season is likely to yield many changes in the Premier League, due to the new managers at Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City. 

All managers, throughout the league, will evaluate their squads and decide on its changes - whether players are needed or are surplus to requirements. Players themselves, however, also have decisions to make surrounding their futures and there are five big Premier League strikers linked with exits from their current clubs - but should they stay or go?

Fernando Torres

An expensive acquisition by Chelsea who’s weekly performances have been the subject of much media scrutiny. The Spaniard’s time at Stamford Bridge has not been an easy one with El Nino struggling to find the back of the net. 

The £50 million striker managed to score an impressive 22 goals last term and finished the season in a strong manner - scoring in the Europa League final and Chelsea’s last game of the season.

Currently the most expensive player in Britain, Torres will always be under huge pressure to convert chances while he stays at Chelsea. Recently he’s publicly stated he wishes to see out the remainder of his contract with Chelsea and under new manager Jose Mourinho, Torres will be hoping to find the form that convinced Chelsea to buy him.

Should he stay or should he go? - Stay

Carlos Tevez

Since his Premier League debut in 2006, Tevez has hardly looked backed - well apart from his six month hiatus for Manchester City.

The talented striker has had his share fair of misdemeanours but often been in blistering form in front of goal. The Argentine’s time in England has always been eventful but has also seen him win many pieces of silverware.

Tevez will be 30 next year and this is probably the most ideal time for him to find a new challenge within football. Two of Italy’s biggest clubs, Juventus and AC Milan, are interested in the City forward and a move to the continent is looking more likely as the Citizens start their own transfer spree.

Michu

Many would find it hard to disagree that Michu’s one of the best bargain buys. The Swans their centenary in football last season with victory in the Capital One Cup and Michu was excellent all season.

An opening day brace at QPR was the start of things to come for Michu. Swansea’s player of the season grabbed 18 league goals last season and was unlucky not to be in the running for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Michu’s fine campaign means that Swansea could command a decent fee for their star player. A fan favourite at the Liberty Stadium, Michu hasn’t publicly expressed a desire to move but this might be his best time for a ‘big’ move.

Edin Dzeko

City’s Boznian striker arrived in the same transfer window that Torres and Carroll changed clubs so his high profile move from Wolfsburg was overshadowed. After spending the initial few months settling in Dzeko was an important part of City’s title winning side - grabbing the equaliser in their thrilling encounter with QPR to claim the title.

Often labelled as a ‘super sub’, Dzeko has spoken of his desire to start more games rather than make an impact from the bench. Competition is high for a starting place at Manchester City and if Tevez, like Balotelli, leaves the Etihad then Dzeko would likely believe he has a better chance of starting matches.

However, with a new manager on his way and City’s unnerving transfer sprees he could just be another name on the striker merry-go-round.

Should he stay or should he go? - Stay
