Premier League fans will witness one of the most interesting summer transfer windows they have ever seen as several top players will be on the move.

The 2019-20 Premier League campaign has been one of the most interesting top-flight seasons we as fans have seen in several years. Liverpool has maintained their primacy over their league rivals since day one and now enjoy a 25-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.

The race for a spot among the top six is wide open and includes a few surprising teams that were expected struggle this season. Moreover, the relegation battle is unpredictable as six teams are in real danger of playing in the Championship next season.

One of the more interesting narratives of the season, however, has been player transfer rumours. Several players from every team have been linked with other clubs, some in England and others abroad, but who will actually suit up for a different team?

Only players and their agents know the answer to that question today, but it would not come as a surprise to see the five players listed below play for new clubs next season.

That being said, here is my list of players I am confident will make transfer headlines this summer. To make things more interesting, a prediction of their new destinations has also been included.

Jack Grealish

Aston Villa fans do not want to hear this, nor do they want to imagine their club without their star player, but Jack Grealish will be on the move this summer. Over the last two seasons, Grealish was scouted by a few notable Premier League sides.

He was recognized as the best overall player in the Championship, but the playmaker wanted to earn promotion with his boyhood club, and he met that objective last May.

Aston Villa has spent over £120m and replaced half their squad with that money, but they find themselves in 19th place at this stage of the season.

Grealish has given his all for Aston Villa by scoring seven goals and providing six assists, but the same cannot be said about his teammates, and this is reflected in the club’s inconsistent form this season.

The 24-year-old knows he can be an integral player for an elite team in England, and Manchester United have expressed interest in Grealish for several months now. The Red Devils are not the powerhouse club they once were, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Grealish’s playmaking abilities in midfield is what his team desperately needs.

Bruno Fernandes has been phenomenal for Manchester United since arriving from Sporting, and he and Grealish will make quite the duo next season.
