Due to covid-19, every club is set to lose money for the season and it would require quite some time to restore normal financial conditions. A lot of clubs require to rebuild and strengthen their squads so clubs look for an alternative to the market rolling by swap-deals. So we look at the most profitable swaps that can occur during the summer.
5. Tanguy Ndombele- Samuel Umtiti+ Nelson Semedo
For €62million, Tanguy Ndombele has not proved his worth so far and seems to find himself on the wrong side of the headlines at north London, with his attitude being called into question.i
Barcelona are said to be interested in the Frenchman and ready to offer much in-demand Samuel Umtiti and Nelson Semedo for him. Seems a match in heaven deal for Spurs, as they need to strengthen their defense.
4. Thomas Partey-Alexandre Lacazette
With Mikel Arteta deciding the future of each and every player, it would be fair to say Alexandre Lacazette hasn’t impressed the new boss the way he would like to. With Arsenal’s looking to strengthen their midfield, it has led to heavy links with Atletico Madrid man, Thomas Partey.
Though, this deal could depend on the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future as Arteta would not want to lose his two top goalscorers in the same window.
3. Arthur-Miralem Pjanic
A rather odd deal to execute, a 23-year-old for a 30-year-old. Arthur who is about to make his mark in world-football and Pjanic who has left his mark and has started the latter phase of his career.
If this deal happens, Barca would end up on the losing side as Pjanic has 2-3 seasons at the most left at the very top level but his presence and experience could actually help the Catalan giants during their transition.
2. N’Golo Kante- Philippe Coutinho
Scoring goals has been an issue for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea this season and Philippe Coutinho could be the solution they are looking for. Barca are looking to off-load the Brazilian this summer by hook or crook, and West London seems to be the perfect destination for the 27-year-old.
Barcelona under Quique Setien look to establish their philosophy once again and in order to do so, they require the services of a player like Kante and this deal would go on to serve the purpose for both the clubs.
1. Toni Kroos- Paul Pobga
Real Madrid are reportedly ready to offer Toni Kroos for the Frenchman, which to be honest would not be a bad deal for the Red Devils, considering that the German is without doubt one of the best midfielders in the world.
