The Premier League transfer market is yet to heat up, despite Liverpool and Manchester United playing a strong first hand with $30 million moves for Jordan Henderson and Phil Jones, respectively.
But there are several big teams in England and on the continent who harbour ambitions to win back titles and who are prepared to spend a lot of money to achieve this.
Chelsea, Internazionale and Real Madrid are fed up of being in the shadows of more successful rivals or of always being the Nearly Men.
The Liverpool board and manager are making the right noises to their fans and have been linked with numerous high-profile footballers as they look to silence long-time rivals Manchester United. Another team with the means to topple Sir Alex Ferguson's team are neighbours Manchester City.
All of these dynamics combine to promise a fascinating three-week period before pre-season training for 2011-2012 starts and managers look to embed new players into their squads and teach them new tactics.
Here, I highlight another 25 players who could be on the move this week, following on from Part One last week.
