Podolski will do well at Arsenal. Of all of the top 6 teams, I think that Arsenal & Man United will be the most active in the transfer market:

Newcastle have money to invest too. If they qualify for the CL, they should be in a good position to attract big names, with Gylfi Sigurdsson being a known potential target:

The man has been sensational on loan at Swansea and Newcastle could easily afford Hoffenheim's £8 million asking price.

I want Hazard at Arsenal but knowing how cheap Wenger is, he will probably end up in Manchester.

Witsel and Courtois shouldn't go to Real to sit on the bench.

Vertonghen at Tottenham would be nice but i rather see him teaming up with Vermaelen again.

Mertens is not ready yet for a team like Bayern, already have Ribery and Robben anyway.
Would be better for him to stay another year at PSV and go to Valencia/Atletico/Dortmund/Schalke/PSG/Marseille.
Don't think he's the type of player that would be successful in the Serie A/Premier League.

Never seen Nainggolan play, how good is he?

I think Sunderland or Everton could be good places for him. He certainly wont be at Wolves next season. Wouldn't be too surprised to see him at Stoke or WBA either.

On another note i wonder what managers could be changing for the start of the season and a couple more by Christmas isn't a surprise anymore.

Villa for a new boss anyone and who's going to be at WBA i wonder..

Fletcher would be a decent investment for Sunderland. They need to replace Bendtner away who will most likely not have his loan extended. Fletcher will get far better service from players like Larsson & Sessegnon.

Everton is another option. A Jelavic/Fletcher partnership would definitely net plenty of goals and would propel Everton into top 6 contenders.

Also likely to be leaving Wolves will be Matt Jarvis. I could see him succeeding at Everton too - £12 million for a double swoop would sound about right. Wolves still have Hammill to rely on and Milijas, who would be decent enough players to help them bounce back up.

Villa will once again change managers, no doubt. They should have kept with Martin O'Neill, IMO. They go through far too many managers and never seem to find consistency and stability.

The few times I've seen him play, he did well, although I did not consider him all that special. Just good. He's a central midfielder.

Agree about Mertens, I would prefer to see him play in Spain or France or maybe Portugal.
