Deadline day is looming and there are a number of big stars who need a move in order to kick-start their careers

#1 Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham)

Belgium international defender Toby Alderweireld wants out of Tottenham, and it seems that manager Mauricio Pochettino wants rid of the 29-year-old, who has been the subject of overtures from Manchester United. It is a move that may yet happen, but Spurs are insisting on finding a replacement before selling. Given that they have failed to sign a single player this summer, it is little wonder the Old Trafford club appear to be keeping their options open.

 

#2 Danny Drinkwater (Chelsea)

It was little over two years ago that Danny Drinkwater played a pivotal role in Leicester City’s stunning Premier League title success. His energetic all-action style led to questions as to just why Manchester United released him as a youngster. Those answers have perhaps been found at Chelsea, where he has managed only 521 minutes of Premier League football. If he can’t find a way out, he threatens to become a forgotten man.

 

#3 Danny Ings (Liverpool)

It’s fair to say that luck hasn’t exactly been on Danny Ings' side since he completed a £6.5m move from Burnley to Liverpool off the back of an 11-goal season at Turfmoor in the 2014-15 campaign. Three minutes were all it took for him to grab his first Premier League goal for the club, but only two have followed since. Two serious knee injuries have wrecked his career with the Reds and realistically his opportunities will be restricted due to the club’s talented roster of forwards.

 

#4 Vincent Janssen (Tottenham)

Signed amid great fanfare from AZ in the summer of 2016, Tottenham have failed to see any meaningful return from the £17 million they spent on the Netherlands international forward. He managed just a couple of Premier League goals in a miserable first season and was then predictably shunted out on loan to Fenerbahce last term. Although he scored four times in the Super Lig, there appear to be no suitors this summer for a player still just 24-years-old.

 

#5 Loris Karius (Liverpool)

Winning back any credibility promises to be a major challenge for goalkeeper Loris Karius, whose two errors in the Champions League final cost Liverpool so dearly. Worse, he followed those up with similar blunders in pre-season that prompted Jurgen Klopp to go out and invest a world-record amount in Brazil international Alisson. It’s hard to see the 25-year-old regaining a first-team spot at Anfield, and if he is to grow, a move may be the best idea.

 

#6 Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea)

Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains on the books of Chelsea after a successful loan spell at Crystal Palace last season. His performances at Selhurst Park were sufficient to earn him a place in England’s World Cup squad but retaining a place with the Three Lions will be tough at Stamford Bridge, where Maurizio Sarri’s squad is replete with quality in the heart of the field. With Mateo Kovacic potentially arriving from Real Madrid, his chances are set to be further depleted.

 

#7 Anthony Martial (Manchester United)

Anthony Martial was on the periphery of things at Manchester United before a spat with manager Jose Mourinho this summer surely put an end to his career at Old Trafford. His inability to nail down a regular place under the Portuguese likely cost him his chance to be part of France’s World Cup squad, while a prolonged break to be with his new-born child against Mourinho’s orders during the club’s pre-season US tour seems to have severed relations entirely. A new start is required.

 

#8 Paul Pogba (Manchester United)

During the summer, we finally got a glimpse of why Manchester United signed Paul Pogba for £89.3 million. The 25-year-old midfielder was a dominant presence alongside N’Golo Kante at the heart of the France side that won the World Cup. Jose Mourinho appears unwilling or unable to get similar performances from the ex-Juventus player, who is being linked with a return to Turin or a transfer to Barcelona. A move may allow him to realise his potential on a more permanent basis in an environment in which he is not so stifled.
