Part of the fun of watching the World Cup is keeping up with the behind-the-scenes rumours and transfers dealings. As players impress on the global stage, they naturally start to attract interest from big clubs, and there are plenty of names already being linked with potential transfers to some of the Premier League's top teams.
Some of these players were already on the radars of clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea, but others have come out of nowhere, announcing themselves to the world with some superb performances and potentially earning themselves big money moves that could shape their futures and change their lives.
The World Cup will end on July 15, but the Premier League transfer window will remain open until August 9, with English football fans sure to see some huge moves and big signings in the weeks to come. Scouts from plenty of clubs have been watching the World Cup closely, keeping their eyes on long-term targets and breakout stars, and it'll be very interesting to see if any of these great players will be plying their trade in the Premier League next season.
