With the World Cup currently on the go, it’s easy to forget that a transfer window now looms large over Europe’s top clubs.

And, with plenty of players looking to show just what they are all about on the biggest stage in Brazil this summer, you can expect to see a number of players linked with big-money moves from one club to another.

England get their campaign underway on Saturday night against Italy, and unsurprisingly the biggest clubs in the Premier League are finding themselves linked with pretty much all players under the sun.

The top two in Spain also find themselves in the headlines, and it's there we start as Barca make a statement of intent on a player linked with three different clubs in the top flight on these shores...


Barcelona have put a €25million price tag on Cameroon international midfielder Alex Song, despite his lack of recent playing time at the Nou Camp.

The 26-year-old moved to Catalonia from Arsenal back in 2012, and has since been linked with a return to the Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his squad.

Manchester United have also been linked with a move for the player, with Louis van Gaal taking charge at Old Trafford and looking to revamp the side after last season’s failures.

And now, Chelsea are also being linked with a move, with The Daily Express claiming Jose Mourinho could launch a £10million bid to bring the player to Stamford Bridge. That would be some way short of the reported valuation.
