Transfer Rumours: Top 50 Players Outside of England on the Move This Summer

0 of 50

    Tomorrow, on July 1st, the transfer window will formally open in England for business to be officially completed.

    There are many names being thrown around at the moment, but most rumours this season have so far seemed like domestic ones, between British clubs.

    There are, however, numerous transfers going on outside of England in the rest of Europe and in fact the World.

    Many players, as per usual have been linked with the Premier League thanks to it's spectacularly high fan base size.
