Transfer XI: This summer’s most in-demand targets, including Ilkay Gundogan, Man United linked Gareth Bale and Real Madrid bound stopper

Morgan Schneiderlin – Southampton

This week [in quotes from Sky Sports], the Saints midfielder finally spoke out over his future and insisted that he would only consider leaving St Mary’s for Champions League football. Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked to his name, but with Spurs missing out on a place in Europe’s elite, the Gunners must surely be comfortable front-runners for his signature [Telegraph].

Ilkay Gundogan – Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke confirmed on Wednesday that the German midfielder would definitely be leaving the Westfalenstadion in the summer after the club announced, at the end of April, that he would not be extending his current deal, which expires next summer. Arsenal and Manchester United are among those interested from the Premier League, but BVB’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich have joined the transfer chase [via the Daily Star]. The club are after £20m for his signature.

Paul Pogba – Juventus

Since leaving Old Trafford, the French midfielder has stunned Serie A and has seen his named linked alongside a host of top European clubs. A return to Manchester – with both City and United – has been mooted, but it’s hard to envisage the 22-year-old itching for a return to the Premier League after a miserable career under Sir Alex Ferguson. If latest reports from talkSPORT are to be believed, he will snub England in favour of a move to Spain.
