With the domestic season all wrapped-up, fans will be turning their attentions to their clubs’ activity in the summer transfer window.

By Billy Cundall

With the deadline being brought forward to opening day, many will expect teams to act swiftly in the market, but who could be on the move this off-season?

We look to Sky Bet for odds on the most likely transfers to happen this window…

Alfie Mawson

The recently relegated Swansea man will be disappointed at the injury-struck conclusion to his season and, after being ruled out of contention for England at the FIFA World Cup, the 24-year-old could switch focus to securing future Premier League football again next term. Tottenham are 6/4 to land his services, whilst their north London rivals Arsenal are 7/2 to gatecrash the potential transfer.

Sky Bet verdict: 6/4 to join Tottenham

Xherdan Shaqiri

Another man relegated to the Sky Bet Championship this year was Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri. The 26-year-old’s focus will certainly be on this summer’s World Cup, but will no doubt have one eye on his future beyond FIFA’s showpiece in Russia. Managerless Everton are the shortest price at 5/2 to land the ex-Bayern man, but West Ham and former club Inter Milan (both 3/1) may provide stiff competition for his signature.

Sky Bet verdict: 5/2 to join Everton

Mario Balotelli

Nice’s Mario Balotelli is another ex-Inter man that could be on the move this summer. The Italian has had somewhat of a resurgence at the French outfit, attracting links with various clubs across Europe. Domestic rivals Marseille are 4/7 favourites to land the 27-year-old, but may face a tug-of-war with UEFA Champions League semi-finalists Roma, who are 4/1 to bring Balotelli back to Italy. A move back to England looks unlikely, with Everton and West Ham both 16/1 to take a gamble on the 2011/12 Premier League winner.

Sky Bet verdict: 4/7 to join Marseille

Riyad Mahrez

Fellow Premier League champion Riyad Mahrez looks set to depart the King Power stadium this summer with a host of potential suitors lining up for his signature. After several months of speculation, Manchester City appear best placed to land the Algerian, with the Citizens 10/11 favourites to sign Mahrez in front of Chelsea at 7/2. Arsenal have been continuously linked with the 27-year-old in previous windows but appear an outside shot at 12/1.

Sky Bet verdict: 10/11 to join Man City

Jorginho

Jorginho - Assists & Defensive Skills 2017/2018

One deal City are expected to get done this summer is the acquisition of Brazilian born, Italy international Jorginho. The Napoli midfielder has been instrumental in their domestic challenge for the Scudetto, and a move to Pep Guardiola’s City looks to be on the cards with the 26-year-old 1/6 to swap Naples for Manchester. Liverpool provide the outsider contention at 14/1 to snatch his services, and recent FA Cup winners Chelsea are 25/1 to swoop in.

Sky Bet verdict: 1/6 to join Man City

Gareth Bale

With Manchester City seemingly set to be active in the upcoming window, Manchester United will be looking to close the gap by bolstering their own squad. This could be in the form of Gareth Bale, who has endured a frustratingly inconsistent season over in Madrid, and may be looking for a route back to the Premier League. The Red Devils are at 15/8 to land the Champions League winner, with former club Spurs 7/2 to welcome Bale back.

Sky Bet verdict: 15/8 to join Man Utd

Antoine Greizmann

An Antoine Greizmann transfer to Manchester United last summer was reportedly all but finalised but, after a deal failed to materialise, the Frenchman could choose to move this summer instead. La Liga champions Barcelona are 1/5 favourites to add the 27-year-old to their ranks, with Mourinho’s men a big outsider at 12/1 to secure his services.

Sky Bet verdict: 1/5 to join Barcelona

Fabinho

Manchester United are, however, 6/5 favourites to sign AS Monaco’s Fabinho. The Brazilian could be brought to Manchester to bolster the Red Devil’s midfield options, amidst the retirement of Michael Carrick and rumours regarding the uncertain future of Marouane Fellaini. Should Griezmann depart the Wanda Metropolitano, Atletico may be able to afford the services of the Monaco man, and are at 5/2 to make that move.

Sky Bet verdict: 6/5 to join Man Utd

Ryan Sessegnon

Wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon’s future could depend on the outcome on next weekend’s Sky Bet Championship Play-Off showdown between Fulham and Aston Villa. The left-sided Englishman has enjoyed a stellar season, attracting suitors from England’s elite. Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham are 5/2 to welcome the 18-year-old to their new stadium, but are expected to face tough competition from Mourinho’s Manchester United (3/1).

Sky Bet verdict: 5/2 to join Tottenham
