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.
9 Adrian Lopez
Arsenal have apparently already bid for Atletico de Madrid's Adrian Lopez. The striker is third choice at Atletico now and a move to the Premiership could re-ignite his career. Arsenal have tabled a £10 million bid which is less than Lopez's £14.7m release clause.
