Wesley Sneijder, Radamel Falcao and David Villa have all been linked with Premier League moves in recent weeks, and could very well move to Europe's richest league.
Inter Milan star Sneijder, who for a few seasons was courted by Manchester United and Chelsea, is wanted by Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, according to the Daily Mirror.
A move to either club would be logical with Sneijder's most comfortable positions—the furthest forward in a midfield three or out on the left in an attacking trio—making him a versatile option in the fluid 4-3-3 formation favoured by both Reds manager Brendan Rodgers and Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.
And Sneijder himself has admitted he could move this month, being quoted in the Mirror saying: "Clearly it’s best for everyone concerned that in January I am transferred."
Meanwhile Radamel Falcao has long been linked with a switch to Manchester City or Chelsea, with both clubs having the money to match his €60 million buy-out clause.
The 26-year-old Colombian striker, who has scored more La Liga goals than Cristiano Ronaldo so far this season, is quoted in The Sun as saying he won't he leave in January.
However, many players have said the same thing in the past and left a few days later, and with both Chelsea and City able to double the striker's £5 million-a-year salary, a move shouldn't be ruled out.
Especially considering Falcao would be the missing piece of the jigsaw for Chelsea, who's attacking line would be complete with a proven finisher who can hold up play and dominate aerially.
While for City, the Atletico Madrid forward could be the difference manager Roberto Mancini desires in his team, after the Italian tactician admitted the club's failure to sign Robin van Persie in the summer could cost them the title (h/t BBC Sport).
And lastly David Villa could complete a tantalising trio of star names transferring to the Premier League this winter.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are all keen on the Spaniard, who himself is apparently interested in a move to England.
Available for £16 million, one of those clubs could well take a financial gamble on the 31-year-old come the end of the month, especially if they fail to land their other targets and the goals dry up in the next few matches.
Another established, world-class goalscorer who's guaranteed to excel in the Premier League with his technical ability and tactical flexibility, provided he can prove his fitness, don't rule out Villa earning one last big blockbuster move.
