1 Player Each Premier League Team Could Still Buy, Loan or Sell This Summer

1 of 21

    With the start of the Premier League season less than two weeks away, there is still plenty of business to be done in the transfer market.

    Some of Britain's biggest clubs, notably Manchester United and Arsenal, are yet to make a significant signing.

    There are players who should expect to find themselves at a new club by September, whether having made a temporary switch or a permanent one.

    Here is one player every EPL club could still buy, loan or sell this summer.

Arsenal

2 of 21

    Buy: Luis Suarez

    Arsene Wenger's search for a new striker continues, with Luis Suarez leading the pack of potential signings.

    Liverpool will play hardball, though. The Uruguayan forward was by far their most influential player last term.

    According to the Daily Mail, "Luis Suarez is prepared to take legal action against Liverpool in a bid to force through his protracted move to Arsenal."

Aston Villa

3 of 21

    Sell: Darren Bent

    Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert never really wanted Darren Bent in the first place.

    And with Christian Benteke laying waste to all in his path, why would he want the £18 million flop anyway?

    The Mirror claims "Crystal Palace are the surprise leaders in the race to sign [the] former England striker".

Cardiff City

4 of 21

    Buy: Tom Huddlestone

    New boys Cardiff City have already clinched the impressive signings of Andreas Cornelius and Steven Caulker.

    The Welsh club will now turn its attention to Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone, if a report in the Daily Mail is to be believed.

    "England international Huddlestone faces an uncertain future at White Hart Lane following the arrival of £17 million Brazilian Paulinho."

Chelsea

5 of 21

    Buy: Wayne Rooney

    Jose Mourinho is yet to make the earth-shattering transfer splash many expected from him on his return to Stamford Bridge.

    It seems the Portuguese manager's only target is Manchester United's wantaway forward Wayne Rooney.

    Per the BBC, the Red Devils rejected an offer from Chelsea over the weekend.

Crystal Palace

6 of 21

    Buy: Andreas Granqvist

    Genoa's Andreas Granqvist is a solid, if a little uninspiring, central defender.

    He is currently being touted as a transfer target for Ian Holloway's newly-promoted Crystal Palace.

    So says the Daily Star, who claim "Crystal Palace boss Holloway has held preliminary talks with the Sweden international’s representatives following the collapse of Granqvist’s proposed move to AC Milan."

Everton

7 of 21

    Sell: Marouane Fellaini

    New Everton manager Roberto Martinez would love to have a player of Marouane Fellaini's quality at Goodison Park next term.

    But if recent tabloid reports are to be believed, he faces an uphill battle keeping the Belgian midfielder.

    The Independent claims "Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini is ready to snub Arsenal in favour of a move to Manchester United."

Fulham

8 of 21

    Loan In: Adel Taarabt

    Under experienced boss Martin Jol, Fulham were a stable, mid-table side last season.

    The Cottagers are unlikely to make the kind of steal signing that Dimitar Berbatov proved to be last summer, but Jol is reportedly interested in bringing QPR attacking midfielder Adel Taarabt to London.

    The Daily Mail reports "Jol has confirmed QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt will undergo a medical at Fulham on Tuesday ahead of a proposed loan move."

     

Hull City

9 of 21

    Buy: Jack Colback

    If there is one area Steve Bruce needs to reinforce in, it's midfield.

    Hull City will not be expected to survive next term without more Premier League-quality players in the squad.

    The Sunderland Echo cites Sunderland's Jack Colback as a potential target for the Tigers.

Liverpool

10 of 21

    Sell: Stewart Downing

    Brendan Rodgers seems to have a clear identity in mind for Liverpool.

    Unfortunately for Stewart Downing, he probably does not fit into the former Swansea City manager's long term plans.

    The Daily Mail claims Newcastle United are lining up a bid in the region of £5 million.

Manchester City

11 of 21

    Loan Out: Scott Sinclair

    Scott Sinclair was one of several transfer flops for Manchester City last summer.

    The English winger received little in the way of playing time, and when he was on the pitch, he failed to sparkle.

    "West Bromwich Albion hope to complete the loan signing of Scott Sinclair later this week," claims the Birmingham Mail.

Manchester United

12 of 21

    Sell: Anderson

    Manchester United's inactivity in the transfer market has alarmed many fans of the club.

    David Moyes has looked a little inept in this respect early in his reign in charge of Red Devils.

    Back in March, the Daily Mail reported "Anderson is set to leave Manchester United in the summer after failing to hold down a place in Sir Alex Ferguson's side."

Newcastle United

13 of 21

    Buy: Bafetimbi Gomis

    Newcastle United suffered from staleness last season with the club not having properly reinforced the previous summer.

    Alan Pardew faces the same problem this offseason. The Magpies are yet to dip their beaks into the market.

    According to The Guardian, Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis is a premier target.

Norwich City

14 of 21

    Buy: Ola Toivonen

    Chris Hughton has conducted some of the most impressive business in this summer's transfer window.

    Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Leroy Fer and Gary Hooper have already joined the ambitious club.

    Sky Sports reports "PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen insists he has not ruled out making a move to Norwich City this summer."

Southampton

15 of 21

    Sell: Billy Sharp

    Like Norwich, Southampton have also been prolific this summer, signing Victor Wanyama and Dejan Lovren from Celtic and Lyon respectively.

    Unfortunately for forward Billy Sharp, he does not seem to have future at St. Mary's Stadium.

    Former club Doncaster Rovers could be a potential destination. This according to The Mirror.

Stoke City

16 of 21

    Loan Out: Jack Butland

    There were not many Stoke City fans who hailed Mark Hughes' appointment as Tony Pulis' successor.

    But the manager will be given a chance by the loyal fanbase.

    With goalkeeper Asmir Begovic set to remain at the club, the Daily Mail reports promising youngster Jack Butland will be sent out on loan next season.

Sunderland

17 of 21

    Buy: Walter Gargano

    It will be interesting to see how Paulo Di Canio fares in a full season in charge of Sunderland.

    The fiery Italian boss kept the Black Cats from relegation last term, though barely.

    Talented Napoli defensive midfielder Walter Gargano has been linked with a move to the Stadium of Light, according to the Daily Mail.

     

     

Swansea City

18 of 21

    Sell: Luke Moore

    With prolific striker Wilfried Bony signed to partner Michu in attack, Swansea City should only improve next season.

    This leaves Luke Moore a little out in the cold. The 27-year-old scored only three league goals for the Swans last term.

    Sky Sports reports "A number of clubs have been alerted to the availability of Swansea striker Luke Moore after he was left out of their pre-season tour of Holland."

     

Tottenham Hotspur

19 of 21

    Sell: Gareth Bale

    Could Tottenham Hotspur really turn down an offer in excess of £85 million for Gareth Bale?

    His talent is undeniable, his importance to Spurs unquestioned. But such a sum is unprecedented in world football.

    The Telegraph reports the London club are "keen on an up-front cash deal that would also involve [Real] Madrid striker Alvaro Morata joining Tottenham".

West Bromwich Albion

20 of 21

    Buy: Jermain Defoe

    Speaking of Tottenham players potentially leaving White Hart Lane this summer, how about Jermain Defoe?

    With Roberto Soldado having signed, the England forward has found himself marginalised.

    According to The Sun, "West Brom want to throw a Premier League lifeline to Jermain Defoe."

West Ham United

21 of 21

    Buy: Marko Arnautovic

    Andy Carroll, the £15 million signing from Liverpool, may not be enough for West Ham.

    The Hammers have reportedly set their sights on another erratic striker, namely Austrian Marko Arnautovic.

    Per the Daily Mail, "The 6ft 3in Austria powerhouse can play on either wing or as a central striker. His pace and versatility have attracted boss Sam Allardyce, who is eager to lift the goalscoring burden from Andy Carroll."
