These ten stars of the German top flight could all be making big moves to the Premier League this summer.
The German Bundesliga has emerged as one of Europe’s most competitive leagues in recent years, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund both establishing themselves at the top of the European game. Premier League clubs have begun to show their interest in German-based players ahead of a big summer of spending, with these ten stars all linked with moves to England.
1) Mats Hummels
Manchester United are known to be in the market for a number of players this summer, with Borussia Dortmund’s classy centre back Mats Hummels believed to be near the top of Louis van Gaal’s wishlist. Now regarded as one of the best centre backs in European football, Hummels came through the youth system at Bayern Munich but was allowed to move on to rivals Dortmund, a decision that the Bavarian club have come to regret as they were forced to watch Hummels flourish from afar.
