Jordan Henderson – The 20 year old England international is on the verge of making a 18 million pound switch to Liverpool after a very successful season. There are mumurs that Tottenham have shown an interest in Henderson. Right now it seems that they’re keen on Joe Cole, despite his awful season, but if they can still get in the mix for the North Eastern lad.

Carlos Tevez – The Argentinian international, bagging 20 goals this season, has declared he has no interest in returning to City uniform for another season. Despite the Champions League, despite the improvement and aspirations of the club. Real Madrid or maybe even Barcelona look like the only possible destinations due to the amount of money (more than 50 mil) that will be needed to secure the deal.

Gervinho – Fresh off his title winning campaign with Lille, the 24 year old Ivorian international who has scored 15 goals this season for Lille will be probably moving across the channel to the UK. Where? Arsenal and Manchester City are calling, at a price range of around 8-10 million pounds.

Wesley Sneijder – The Inter man seemed to be getting closer to Manchester United but if Guus Hiddink gets the Chelsea job, there’s a good chance he’ll be making a move for the midfielder. Anyway, his Inter days are probably over.

Maicon – Speaking of Inter, Real Madrid, who are in the market for anyone who has a hefty price tag over his head might be finally making their purchase of Maicon happen. They have been chasing the Brazilian for quite a while, and he has declared he doesn’t want anymore Italian football in the near future.

Fabio Coentrao – Speaking of Real Madrid and Wing Backs, the Benfica left back has a price tag of 30 million Euros on his head. Some media outlets have already let the word of an agreement being signed between the two clubs, but Benfica have denied, saying that nothing has been signed and set in motion yet.

Javier Pastore – Another hot commodity is Javier Pastore of Palermo. The Argentinian midfielder, one of the more exciting and promising young talents in the world today, had a fantastic season with 11 goals for the Rosanero. Unlike past declerations, the release fee will be 50 million. According to Maurizio Zamparini, no one has made such an offer, yet.

Samir Nasri – Might be the biggest transfer of the summer, at least in the Premier League. Right now, Nasri wants to cash in on his very¬†successful, although up and down at times, season, scoring 10 league goals. He’ll be a free man by next summer, and Arsenal, if they’ll be unable to re-sign him in the next month or so, may be forced to sell him to… Manchester United. His agent declared that Nasri wants to stay with the Gunners, but probably for a lot of money.
