What Would Koulibaly Bring to Chelsea?

What Would Koulibaly Bring to Chelsea?

According to the Mirror, Chelsea have won the race for Kalidou Koulibaly for a fee believed to be in the region of £30m. If this is true, it is another example of a centre-back costing a lot of money, after Eliaquim Mangala, Nicolas Otamendi and Eric Bailly all arrived in England for big fees. The Napoli centre-back has developed a lot over the last 12 months and many believe he could become one of the best in Europe. If he …
Everton Transfer Targets #1: Axel Witsel

Everton Transfer Targets #1: Axel Witsel

A record-breaking summer is on the horizon for Everton Football Club. After a few months of horrifying performances, it looks as if The Toffees are on the up and are ready to go back where we belong. Rumours spread like wildfire and one BIG move, which could potentially happen, is Axel Witsel. He’s been linked with moves to Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, but a confirmed £30 million bid for Witsel has been made from Everton. Is he worth it? …
Benteke: The Dream Ticket for Palace

Benteke: The Dream Ticket for Palace

Crystal Palace have voiced their interest in Liverpool forward Christian Benteke and the out-of-favour striker could be just the solution to their problems in attack. The Premier League side will need all the firepower they can muster in order to compete in the top flight and Benteke has proven he can cause defenders problems. At Aston Villa he was one of the best strikers in the league and Palace will be hoping he can deliver similar performances for them. They're …
Potential Vardy Alternatives For Arsenal

Potential Vardy Alternatives For Arsenal

I stand by my assertion a couple of weeks ago here on EPL Index that Arsenal may have actually dodged a bullet by missing out on Jamie Vardy. I felt then, and still do now, that he didn’t have the movement and technique to suit Arsenal and the different style that they play, usually against compact defences. I believe that although he was not involved in all England’s matches at Euro 2016, when he did play against a deep block, …
Gundogan & Mkhitaryan: Could be the Signings of the Summer

Gundogan & Mkhitaryan: Could be the Signings of the Summer

Borussia Dortmund made a name for themselves under Jurgen Klopp in 2013 when they clinched the Bundesliga title and made it to the Champions League final in the same season. They've got a whole host of big names in their squad - although they've already lost some of those who participated in that winning season just three years ago. Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze both joined rivals Bayern Munich, and it looks like Mats Hummels could be on his way …
Was Jürgen Klopp Right to Opt for £30m Mané?

Was Jürgen Klopp Right to Opt for £30m Mané?

Reports of a £34m (possibly rising to £36m) record deal between Liverpool and Southampton for winger Sadio Mané have been at the forefront of gossip columns and social media over the past few days as Mané seems set to become one of many to follow a path from the South Coast to Merseyside. Previous players to do so have had mixed success with the Reds: Adam Lallana, and Nathaniel Clyne have been impressive and claimed a starting spot under Jürgen …
James Rodriguez - A Risk Worth Taking for Manchester United?

James Rodriguez - A Risk Worth Taking for Manchester United?

James Rodriguez came out of the 2014 World Cup as the tournament's top scorer and the hottest property in football. Two years on, and he has disappointed both Real Madrid, and was a poor performer for Colombia in their Copa America semi-final clash with Chile. Something has gone badly wrong for the attacking midfielder, having been overtaken by Lucas Vazquez in the Real Madrid pecking order in the latter stages of the season. He is one of the three non-EU …
Portugal and Croatia Providing Some Premier League Food for Thought

Portugal and Croatia Providing Some Premier League Food for Thought

Croatia have, without doubt, been one of the best teams to watch at Euro 2016, so I was quite looking forward to their match with Portugal, especially considering some of the talent on show. It has to be said there was an array of gifted players on both sides and in particular, a plethora of midfielders to admire. But, what are the chances of us seeing any of them on a regular basis in the Premier League? The likes of …
