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.
3 David Villa
He may not be the player he once was but Barcelona's forward David Villa would be an amazing addition to any of the big Premiership clubs. The latest word is that apparently the Catalans would sell but are expecting around £15 million - a tidy sum for a 31 year old. You can see him at Chelsea and he would be a massive boost to both Arsenal and Liverpool.
