In the first part of this series we had a look at the defenders from Premier League clubs who are likely to be top transfer targets this summer and in the second part we took a sneak into the midfielders.
In this third and final episode of the series we look into the hitmen, i.e. strikers, from the Premier League clubs who seem likely to be top transfer targets for clubs during the transfer season.
The Croatian international has never really been the same player after his return from the injury that saw him miss the whole 2008-09 season.
This season, he has only been able to make the starting line-up a mere 14 times. With the young Nicklas Bendtner favored in absence of Van Persie the 27-year-old Eduardo has been unable to seal a permanent spot on the team.
He has failed to grab chances that were offered this season. With only six goals in 29 appearances he made the Croatians look clearly out of favor at the Emirates.
With Arsenal strongly linked with a double swoop for Rodallega and N'Zogbia from league rival Wigan Athletic this summer, it could be the last few weeks for the 12th rated Eduardo at North London.
French team Lyon has expressed their interest in the two-time Croatian Player of the Year and are willing to make a bid for him. If Arsenal put him up for sale it will likely lead to bids from numerous other clubs who are ready to make a swoop for the skilled striker from Croatia.
Described by the legendary Maradona as "Argentine prophet for the 21st century" the 26-year-old Carlos Tevez has lived up to his reputation this season much to the joy of Manchester City.
With an impressive goal tally of 28 he has been in fantastic form for the Eastlanders this season. Nicknamed "El Apache," the ex-Red Devils man has proved his critics wrong with his performance this season.
Many have seen his transfer as a mistake by United manager Ferguson.
Although he has had a superb season with cash-rich Manchester City, it is understood he has become disillusioned at Eastlands under Roberto Mancini.
Tevez was largely critical of former manager Mark Hughes' sacking and has objections regarding Roberto Mancini's training methods.
It is speculated that Tevez might turn his back on City for other lucrative offers just in case the high-spending Eastlands club fails to secure a Champions League spot next season.
The high spending Bernabeau giant Real Madrid is reportedly keeping track of Tevez and are likely to turn their attention to him if the Argentine cannot agree a new deal at Eastlands.
With San Siro Internazional also expressing their interest in Tevez it could be a bidding war among the Spanish and Italian giants for securing the striker's services next season, in the transfer window.
The 29-year-old Bulgarian striker has been in the news recently for the wrong reasons.
Dimitar Berbatov has had a dismal two years at Old Trafford, where he failed to live up to the expectations that were brought in with his £31 million transfer from White Hart Lane.
His recent run of poor performance for the Red Devils in the absence of the injured Rooney has led to widespread speculations about a possible move away this summer.
The impressive Bulgarian, distinctive for his skillful, effortless style of play, has been more than often touted as "lazy."
He is considered a misfit for the Red Devils creative style of play. He waits for opportunities to score goals unlike Rooney who creates chances himself.
With a mere 12 goals in 40 appearances this season, the ex-Spurs striker has been far from being impressive for the Old Trafford outfit.
Speculations are rife that United may swap Berbatov with Real Madrid's out-of-favor striker Karim Benzema. AC Milan are also reported to be interested in the six-time Bulgarian Player of the Year and are planning a £20 million bid for securing the Bulgarian's services.
Earlier it was reported that Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich are said to be interested in bringing back Berbatov to the Bundesliga.
Though there is no confirmation regarding Berbatov's future at Old Trafford, there will be a host of suitors waiting with lucrative offers to secure his services for next season.
The impressive 24-year-old Colombian has recently been in the news after it was reported that Arsenal's planning to make a swoop for the Latics striker this summer.
The £10 million striker has had a good season scoring nine goals and seven assists for Wigan Athletic.
With Arsenal manager Wenger expressing his interest in signing the Colombian national team regular along with his teammate N'Zogbia in a reported £21 million summer swoop we could see the Latics star donning Gunners colors.
Rodallega has welcomed speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal and is reportedly ready to make the switch to the North London outfit.
With Wigan manager Roberto Martinez ready to let go off his impressive striker, Rodallega may be one of the first high profile signings of the transfer season.
Though Arsenal may face competition from Liverpool and Stoke City in securing the youngster's services. These clubs have also expressed their desire in signing the Colombian next season, yet the Gunners are clearly the favorite to land the youngster next season.
Fernando Jose Torres, as he is commonly referred to, is one of the few players who have the quality to take the responsibility of his team onto his able shoulders.
El Nino has been an outstanding performer for Liverpool as well as his country in the past few seasons. His prolific goal scoring abilities have earned him a legendary status at Liverpool. He has broken many previous club records in nearly three years at Anfield.
But a spate of frequent injuries has seen him benched numerous times in the last two seasons. He has failed to play a whole season without injury which has affected his club's performance also.
With Merseyside for sale this summer and with numerous top notch clubs expressing their interest in Torres it may well turn out to be the final season for the Liverpool favorite.
Torres has recently expressed doubts on his Premier League future. El Nino is concerned that too many frequent injuries in the physical EPL might bring his career to an untimely end.
Although this news may play spoiler to Manchester City's plans of making an audacious £50 million bid for Torres, it will surely ruffle feathers at numerous Spanish and Italian clubs like Real, Barcelona, or Juventus who have expressed interest in making a bid for one of the most coveted players of modern football.
This upcoming transfer window might see the biggest bidding war in recent times among top notch European clubs for securing the services of Torres next season.
But whether he will leave, is a question that remains unanswered until next season.
