The 8 Euro 2016 stars that should join the Premier League this summer

There’s a debate at the moment over whether Euro 2016 has actually been an enjoyable tournament. But whether you’ve been entertained or not, there’s certainly been a few special talents on display in France.

So who else will be joining the likes of Michy Batshuayi in the Premier League, this summer, as Euro 2016 comes to an end and the transfer window really kicks in?

Michael McGovern

Like surprisingly rare news that the ‘rocket’ in the club you’re chatting up doesn’t have a boyfriend, the Northern Ireland ‘keeper is currently a free agent.

After the incredible performance he turned in against Germany, you can imagine there were a lot of agents sliding into his Twitter DMs.

The 31-year-old has reportedly turned down an offer from Southampton, as he didn’t fancy playing second fiddle to Fraser Forster. But being No.1 for club lower down the top flight is certainly a possibility.

Giorgio Chiellini

There’s nothing better in football than watching a team do a ‘job’ on the opposition – unless of course you’re supporting the opposition.

Italy performed in standard Italian fashion this tournament, with the three Juventus centre-backs being particularly key to their defensive solidity.

Will Conte fancy bringing Chiellini to Chelsea?

Hal Robson-Kanu

Let’s not get too carried away; Hal Robson-Kanu is an awful footballer and shouldn’t be anywhere near the Premier League but that doesn’t mean he won’t get there this summer.

Can’t take away how well he created and took his goal against Belgium, but five goals in over 30 games for Reading last season gives you a greater understanding of the striker.

Looking forward to Steve Bruce labelling him ‘the signing of a summer’ when the Wales striker signs as a free agent, only to then go on and score three goals in 27 starts for the Tigers.


There’s still a case to be made that Nani should’ve remained at Old Trafford, with Manchester United lacking the ingenuity and flair the Portuguese winger brings.

Stoke City have been linked with a move, but the former Red Devils player can certainly go one step higher than the Potters.

Alvaro Morata

Like the abusive ex-boyfriend who has something over you, Real Madrid used their buy-back clause to re-sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus. However, in true Los Blancos style, it’s only because they know they can make money on the Spanish international.

Arsene Wenger knows what he has to do, but no doubt he won’t do it.

Ivan Perisic

The Croatian winger has impressed on the international stage for several years now, and it’s about time we got a closer look at the Inter Milan player.

Manchester City’s lack of width and creativity killed them last season, therefore, Pep Guardiola would do well to push through a move for the 27-year-old.

Leroy Sane

With Bayern Munich signing Renato Sanches, it’s unfair that the Bundesliga has two of the most sought-after youngsters in world football.

The Premier League’s big boys are watching!

Radja Nainggolan

Get him to the Premier League for this absolute banger, alone!
