These ten stars of the 2013/14 Serie A season have all been linked with summer transfers to the English Premier League.
Italy’s top division Serie A has lost its billing as one of Europe’s top destinations for footballing talent in recent years, meaning that these ten stars could all be heading to clubs in the English Premier League.
1) Mehdi Benatia
AS Roma centre back Mehdi Benatia is on the wishlist of Chelsea and Manchester City this summer, with the early title favourites for next season both keen on adding the Moroccan international to their backlines.
Benatia arrived at the Stadio Olimpico from Serie A rivals Udinese last summer and quickly established himself as one of the most solid centre-backs in a division known to value defence particularly highly.
