Top five Premier League summer signing targets

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale

Real Madrid haven't had a great season this year. With the club being knocked out of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey, they have also lost the race to win La Liga after Barcelona's 1-0 win last weekend.

The Los Blancos fans have been unhappy with how their team has been playing and a lot of their anger has been directed at Gareth Bale after some lacklustre performances.

All of those factors added together have brought about rumours that the Welshman could leave Madrid and return to the Premier League in the Summer. Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with the player but whether or not either club will splash the cash on Bale is anyone's guess.

Kevin de Bruyne

Kevin de Bruyne joined Wolfsburg in January 2014 for a fee of £18 million. During his first season with the German side, De Bruyne bagged three goals and six assists in 18 games.

This season, De Bruyne has managed 15 goals and an incredible 26 assists in 44 games and this hasn't gone unnoticed by big name clubs around Europe. Both Manchester clubs are said to be interested in signing the young Belgian but with competition from Bayern Munich, it won't be easy.

Yannick Bolasie

Yannick Bolasie has had an amazing season this year with Crystal Palace. His performances on the pitch have caught the attention of the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham, Everton, Stoke and Newcastle.

Bolasie is one of the most underrated wingers in the league, with only the likes of Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez eclipsing him this season. The Congolese star's only downfall is his conversion rate, only scoring four goals, three of those coming in a 4-1 win at Sunderland making him the first Crystal Palace to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.

Alan Pardew has put a price of £40 million on Bolasie to scare off any potential offers from other teams but if Palace were to receive an offer anywhere in region of 20-25 million then it's unlikely they could resist the temptation. 

Thomas Muller

Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga once again this season and for the first time in a number of years they could be set to lose one of their star players.

Thomas Muller has played a vital role in the Bayern team this season, scoring 21 goals. It's beginning to look like Manchester United will be having another spending spree this summer and Muller is one of Louis van Gaal's top transfer targets.

Muller said that he has a special relationship with van Gaal after the two worked together when Van Gaal was Bayern manager from 2009 to 2011.

Yaya Toure

Yaya Toure had been rumoured to be joining Inter Milan this summer but in the last week or so Chelsea have moved into pole-position to sign the Ivorian midfielder.

Toure has had an up-and-down season this year and it all really started before the season had began during a club event in Abu Dhabi when the club forgot Toure's birthday.

Since then rumours have been floating about all season and it is looking more and more likely that Toure will be leaving the Etihad stadium in the summer.
