GK: Neto – Fiorentina
Who’s interested: Liverpool

RB: Dani Alves – Barcelona
Who’s interested: Monaco, Man City, Man United
The veteran Brazil star already knows he is in his final season at the Nou Camp with both player and club confirming his exit at the end of the season. He may not be up to Barca’s standards anymore, but he could still do a job for another Champions League chasing side.
CB: Nigel de Jong – AC Milan
Who’s interested: Man United
De Jong may well be running down his contract at the San Siro as he looks to make a return to the Champions League now that he has surpassed his 30th birthday. Milan are said to want to keep him, but with an extensive overhaul planned, getting him off the wage bill may not be their worst idea.
CB: Andrea Ranocchia – Inter Milan
Who’s interested: Chelsea, Tottenham, Man United
The 26-year-old was being strongly linked with a move to Chelsea last summer before they snapped up Kurt Zouma. However, with the young Frenchman still not ready to overtake Terry and Cahill, the Italian international could come on board to fill in the gap. Both Spurs and United, who have their own defensive issues, could also take a punt.
LB: Juan Vargas – Fiorentina
Who’s interested: Everton, Southampton
Vargas has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, and though he is now 31 he still possesses the necessary energy and skill to make one final push at success in England.
