On show at the Confederations Cup are some of the World’s top players with coaches and scouts in Brazil monitoring the progress of some of the competition’s stars.
With the summer set to be as busy as ever for transfers, the competition presents an opportunity for clubs to have a good look at potential signings. Here are the top ten players currently playing in the Confederations Cup who could be moving clubs this summer.
10- Keisuke Honda- CSKA Moscow
The midfielder is one of Japan’s star players alongside Manchester United’s Shinji Kagawa and has been linked with some of Europe’s top clubs for awhile now. Honda helped CSKA Moscow’s side win the Russian League and was one of the teams stand-out performers but is now out of contract with the Russian club and is looking to move on. The midfielder is believed to want to join Kagawa in the Premier League and he will have no shortage of potential suitors. Front-runners for the Japanese international’s signature are Everton, with new manager Roberto Martinez keen to re-enforce his midfield for next season. The Spaniard also sees Honda as a replacement for Marouane Fellaini.
The Belgian is strongly linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea all eyeing up the midfielder. Honda could prove to be an excellent replacement for Fellaini but the Toffees will surely have competition for the midfielder, with Spurs and Aston Villa being long-term admirers of Honda.
