The 2024 summer transfer window is heating up, with clubs across Europe looking to bolster their squads.

While several high-profile deals have already been finalized, many more are expected in the coming weeks. Here’s a look at the top 15 players who could be on the move this summer, ranked from number 15 to the most anticipated transfer.

15. Mats Hummels

Current Club: Borussia Dortmund
Hummels, the seasoned German defender, is expected to leave Dortmund this summer. Despite his age, he showcased impressive performances in the Champions League last season, making him a valuable asset for clubs looking for experience in their backline.

14. Joshua Zirkzee

Current Club: Bologna
The Dutch-Nigerian forward is being closely monitored by top European clubs. AC Milan appears to be leading the race, but Arsenal and Manchester United are also in the mix. Zirkzee’s potential makes him a hot commodity this summer.

13. Jhon Durán

Current Club: Aston Villa
Durán has caught the eye of Chelsea’s new coach, Enzo Maresca. The young Colombian forward could make a big move to Stamford Bridge, providing Chelsea with a fresh attacking option.

12. Andriy Lunin

Current Club: Real Madrid
Lunin had a breakout season, stepping up when Courtois was injured. With Courtois back, Lunin might seek a starting role elsewhere. Arsenal are reportedly interested, and a move could see him become their first-choice goalkeeper.

11. Douglas Luiz

Current Club: Aston Villa
Juventus are close to signing Luiz in a swap deal that would see Aston Villa receive Weston McKennie and Samuel Iling-Junior along with 20 million euros. Luiz has agreed to personal terms, making this deal very likely.

10. Julián Álvarez

Current Club: Manchester City
Álvarez, despite his success at City, might be on his way out. Linked with Chelsea and PSG, he reportedly prefers a move to Real Madrid. However, his focus is currently on the Copa América with Argentina.

9. Eberechi Eze

Current Club: Crystal Palace
After a stellar season, Eze is attracting interest from Spurs, Manchester United, and Manchester City. Palace is expected to ask for over 60 million pounds, which could make this a significant deal.

8. Bruno Guimarães

Current Club: Newcastle United
The Brazilian midfielder is valued at around 100 million pounds, and PSG, Liverpool, and Manchester City are interested. Newcastle will control the price negotiations after June 24th, making this a deal to watch closely.

7. Tammy Abraham

Current Club: AS Roma
Former Chelsea striker Abraham is on the radar of Newcastle and Spurs. With a price tag of less than 30 million pounds, this transfer seems quite plausible.

6. Matthijs de Ligt

Current Club: Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich might sell de Ligt this summer, and Manchester United are reportedly interested. Erik ten Hag’s continuation as United’s coach, coupled with his history with de Ligt at Ajax, makes this move likely.

5. Michael Olise

Current Club: Crystal Palace
Olise is another young talent likely to leave Crystal Palace. Chelsea, Newcastle, and Manchester United are all interested, with Chelsea reportedly leading the race.

4. Leny Yoro

Current Club: Lille OSC
The young French defender is wanted by Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Liverpool. With such high-profile clubs chasing him, a big move is almost certain.

3. Victor Osimhen

Current Club: Napoli
Osimhen is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe. Linked with Chelsea, Arsenal, PSG, and Milan, his next destination is highly anticipated.

2. Amadou Onana

Current Club: Everton
Onana, one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, is linked with Barcelona, Manchester United, Spurs, Arsenal, and Bayern Munich. It’s highly unlikely he’ll stay at Everton beyond this summer.

1. Nico Williams

Current Club: Athletic Club
Williams is the most likely to make a big move this summer. The Athletic Club winger is wanted by Barcelona, Arsenal, Spurs, and Liverpool. With a 50 million euro release clause, it’s highly probable one of these clubs will secure his signature soon.

As the transfer window progresses, these 15 players are the ones to watch. Their potential moves could significantly impact the upcoming season for many top clubs across Europe.
