2016 Summer Football EPL Transfers

The current English Premier League is reportedly the strongest football league competition in the world, and is a powerful magnet attracting top football players and ardent football fans from around the globe. With titan clubs Leicester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur fighting for the EPL title this season, the 2016 - 2017 Premiership campaign is sure to be the best ever!

This article about the 2016 summer English Premier League Transfers will help you get up to date with the latest footballer transfers in and out of England's top flight, with transfer fees shown when available. Football fans can keep up to date with the latest developments from the best league in the world.

Although Paul Pogba has reportedly committed to a deal with English Premier League titan club Manchester United, he is in New York this week igniting speculation that Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid may up Manchester United’s £100million world record bid to sign him. Pogba is on summer vacation in New York to watch Zinedine Zidane’s side play Bayern Munich at the MetLife Stadium on Thursday. Playing for European Real Madrid would give Pogba the opportunity to compete in the upcoming 2016-17 Champions League.

Arsenal’s veteran manager Arsene Wenger reportedly has made an offer for England Premier League Champions Leicester City PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez. Leicester’s amazing manager Claudio Ranieri said all the transfer speculation about the 25-year-old is affecting the superstar footballer. Chelsea are ready to bid £68million for Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, who they sold to Everton for less than half that amount only two years ago. Lukaku is linked with a return to Stamford Bridge, having left the club for Goodison Park for £28m in 2014. Reportedly Lukaku wants to move back to London but Everton are asking £75m for his services.

 

The summer transfer window is in full swing ahead of the Premier League's season opening games on August 13-14. Among the major signings to be confirmed: Arsenal raided the German Bundesliga to hire Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach; Manchester City signed Ilkay Gundogan from Dortmund; Manchester United brought in superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Paris Saint Germain on loan, courted Paul Progba for a world-record fee from Juve, and spent £28.5million on Eric Bailly; and Liverpool FC brought in new goalkeeper Lorius Karius.

The giant, wealthy clubs are looking to improve their sides this summer by adding more quality players without upsetting the balance of their existing squads in order to finish on top of the England Premier League Table and to qualify for the prestigious European Champions League Tournament, and the Europa League.

Smaller clubs and newly promoted teams will be sure to aim for quantity as well as quality.

The English Premier League Transfers List provides information by club about the purchases, free transfers and loan deals, listing the player, his nationality, his old and new clubs, and the price of the transfer if available.
