The World Cup, for all that it already is, also serves as a shopping window, wherein club managers and take a look at talents from around the World, and see if they can be added to improve their club squads. Memphis Depay, James Rodriguez are some of the names to have garnered attention and praise during the last World Cup, securing transfers to Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively following the tournament in Brazil. Here are some names who could be on the move following the World Cup in Russia.
1. Sergei Milinkovic-Savic – The Serbian midfielder has been a major talking point during the World Cup. A powerful presence in the centre of the park, Savic contributes tremendously on both offence and defence, and is capable of hitting them from outside the box as well. Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with the 6 foot 4” midfielder. He can play as part of a two-man midfield as well as a three-man midfield.
2. Aleksandr Golovin – The Russian has been a revelation in this World Cup and was garnering attention even before the tournament, with his energetic performances in the middle of the park. Golovin has two assists in three games for the hosts and they will be looking to him to break the deadlock against Spain in the last 16. Chelsea and Juventus have been linked with moves for the dynamic midfielder.
3. Alisson – The Brazilian goalkeeper has been more than reliable between the sticks for the Selecao, edging out the other hugely promising goalkeeper Ederson. Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked with moves for Alisson, as he proves more and more to be solid option in goal. Liverpool desperately need a World class keeper, following the exploits of Karius in the Champions League final, and Alisson could join countryman Roberto Firmino at Anfield.
Also note the developments of Courtois, Rugiani, David Luiz and Co.
