Now, as promised, those midfielders…
Theo Walcott, Arsenal – £9m
Ended last season with a final day hat-trick and then the opener in the FA Cup final, and could get plenty of games up front.
£8.5m team mate Aaron Ramsey is hard to ignore as well, while Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain tempt at £6m apiece.
Yaya Touré, Man City – £8.5m
If he can recapture his form of two seasons ago – and, having not played a World Cup this summer, he might well do – then he’d be joyously cheap at that price.
Sadio Mané, Southampton – £8m
Speaking of hat-tricks towards the end of last season, record-breaking Mané may take a bow along with Walcott.
James Milner, Liverpool – £7m
Could get goals and assists aplenty with a regular run of games.
See also his similarly priced team mate and fellow England international Jordan Henderson, who officially added goals to his game late last season.
Kevin Mirallas, Everton – £7m
If he stays and starts, he’s one of Everton’s most potent weapons.
Charlie Adam, Stoke – £6m
7 goals last season, 8 the year before – this Potter’s a regular Premier League performer.
Ki Sung-yueng, Swansea – £5.5m
8 goals last season, just saying.
Chris Brunt, West Brom – £5.5m
Got 10 assists in 2014-15, albeit only 2 goals.
Wilfried Zaha, Crystal Palace – £5.5m
Seems to have found a new lease of life under Alan Pardew and should operate as something of a forward.
Mind you, half a million more gets you Jason Puncheon. Ooh, and don’t forget Yohan Cabaye…
Marc Albrighton, Leicester – £5m
Ended last season on fire, much like his team. £5.5m Riyad Mahrez is worth keeping an eye on too.
