10 England Players going on Sale or Return?

The Premier League transfer window may be closed, but in Europe teams can buy on for another 9 days and Championship teams can loan. So which England players may be on the move.

Ademola Lookman

Red Bull Leipzig have made an improved £22million bid for Lookman following his successful loan spell last season. But Everton want £28million, so some negotiation will be needed but Lookman will likely be in Leipzig by the end of the month. It seems a logical step for a player who clearly fits at Leipzig but finds himself behind teachers pet Richarlison at Goodison. Likely Outcome- Joins Red Bull Leipzig on permanent transfer


Danny Welbeck

Unai Emery doesn’t fancy him and Arsenal need to rebalance their forward heavy squad, so a move is surely on the cards, right? Not necessarily, Welbeck’s huge wages will be a stumbling block to a potential move to the continent given the level of club likely to show an interest in him. Likely Outcome- Stays at Arsenal until January


Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Loftus-Cheek found himself excluded from even the 18 man squad Chelsea squad picked to face Arsenal and is ‘demanding showdown talks.’ That usually means a loan move is on the cards, Loftus_cheek’s impressive World Cup campaign has left him with no shortage of suitors from Spain, France & Germany. Champions League qualifiers FC Schalke are reportedly interested and it does seem a second loan offer may be on the cards. Likely Outcome- Joins FC Schalke on season long loan, followed by a permanent move


Tammy Abraham

The gangly forward has returned to Chelsea after a mixed season at Swansea. He’s not going to usurp Alvaro Morata in the first 11 and talk of Olivier Giroud moving to Marseille has died down of late, it all leaves Abraham third in the pecking order. Abraham has already stated he doesn’t fancy a move to the Championship, where he thrived with Bristol City. It seems Abraham has fewer admirers on the continent but with Chelsea facing Europa League football, he may be best advised to stick around and play in the cups.  Likely Outcome- Stays at Chelsea


Danny Drinkwater

Only a year ago he was a £35million player, now he’s unwanted at Chelsea. Drinkwater always looked like a Chelsea panic buy and given he joined them injured its little surprise he’s on his way out. Drinkwater would be best suited to a mid level Premier League side (Crystal Palace look a good fit) but with the domestic window closed can only go on loan in England or be sold for a fee few in Europe would fancy. I suspect Drinkwater is in limbo until the January transfer window. Likely Outcome- Stays at Chelsea for now but sold in January


Dominic Solanke

Solanke lit up the Under 20 World Cup but clearly needs games to put it all together, and title chasing Liverpool aren’t a finishing school. He clearly has the belief of Jurgen Klopp but with that awesome front 3 now backed up by Xherdan Shaqiri and a resurgent Daniel Sturridge, Solanke needs a loan to press his future claims. Plenty will be interested but I suspect with such a fine prospect ecomomics will take a backseat if Liverpool can find a suitor who can offer Solanke a regular game and they have a vested interest in another project succeeding in Glasgow. Likely Outcome- Joins Rangers on a season long loan

Freddie Woodman

The Golden Glove of the Under 20 World Cup finds himself stuck down a Newcastle pecking order headed by the impressive Martin Dubravka. Woodman spent the second half of last season on loan at Aberdeen and another loan move is needed if Woodman is to ever make good on his potential. Likely Outcome- Joins a Championship side on a season long loan


Danny Rose

Rose is now a long way behind Ben Davies in the Tottenham left back stakes, worse still Pochettino likes youngster Kyle Walker-Peters who can easily slot in on the left. Having not bought anyone this summer Tottenham are hardly itching to sell but if an offer comes in to take a disgruntled player off their hands they’d take it. Rose has plenty of admirers in the Bundesliga but his wage demands may be a problem, but super rich PSG are also interested so a deal may be in the offing. Likely Outcome- Joins PSG on a permanent deal


Tom Heaton

There are now 3 England capped Goalkeepers at Burnley, even with Nick Pope injured someone will surely go. Heaton is also currently injured but only for the short-term and with Joe Hart settled in as number one, Heaton may feel it’s time to move on. It seems unlikely anyone will move for a goalkeeper so late in the day unless someone goes down injured. Heaton may have to wait a while to get a move. Likely Outcome- Stays at Burnley until the summer


Fraser Forster

England’s forgotten goalkeeper has suddenly found himself third choice at Southampton behind Alex McCarthy & Angus Gunn. But after a rough couple of years on the south coast for Forster but two giants of Turkish football look set to step in with both Beskits & Fernebache interested. Likely Outcome- Joins Besiktas on season long loan
