Villa, Sneijder, Zaha and the 10 most wanted players in the transfer window

By Stefano on December 31st, 2012

So, there is just a few hours to go before paper talk can become reality and the winter transfer window opens. This winter expect some serious cash to be flying with Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool desperate to strengthen their squads to keep them in the frame for Champions League qualification, and Man City and Chelsea mulling over big money strikers.

Apparently ‘Arrry has £20 million to spend too.

So here then are the ten most coveted players in the window. I’d be very surprised if at least half of them weren’t wearing new colours come February.

Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby is apparently in talks with Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham about a move to the Premiership. The former German under 21 captain won many admirers for his performances for Schalke in this year's Champions League and a significant offer could prise him from the Germans this month, or if not during the summer.
