Euro 2024: Five stars who could earn a Premier League move

Plenty of stars have been showing their quality at Euro 2024, but which ones could earn a move to the Premier League?

France's Youssouf Fofana

Euro 2024 has not disappointed so far and the tournament in Germany has helped push some of the continent’s biggest stars into the spotlight.

The quarter-finals are set to serve up more drama and the remaining nations will be looking to their in-form players to continue their hot streaks and help them progress into the last four.

As with most major international tournaments, transfer rumours emerge surrounding those that are standing out and there have been plenty of names linked with a move to the Premier League ahead of the 2024-25 campaign.

They may not always turn out as a success, but it does add to the excitement of an already eagerly anticipated new season.

We take a look at five stars who could make a switch to England this summer.

Youssouf Fofana – France 

France have not been at their blistering best so far at Euro 2024 but it does not mean there is not an abundance of talent in their squad.

One of their notable names is 25-year-old Youssouf Fofana of Monaco, who is drawing a lot of attention from the Premier League.

The midfielder has one year left on his contract at the Ligue 1 club and is reportedly of interest to Arsenal and Tottenham during the summer transfer window.

He has been raved about by former Gunner Cesc Fabregas, who said: “He is a very dynamic, strong player, who is good on the ball.

“He’s a modern type of player, who is aggressive and can jump. And he gets box-to-box.”

Joshua Zirkzee – Netherlands

The Dutch always seem to produce gems and Joshua Zirkzee is one of the latest prospects to emerge on the world stage.

Bologna were the surprise package in Serie A last term, finishing fifth and qualifying for the Champions League.

Zirkzee scored 11 league goals along the way and is admired by Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, who is keen on bringing as much Dutch talent to the Premier League as possible.

AC Milan are also interested in the 23-year-old striker and he appears to be the perfect replacement for Olivier Giroud.

A tall, strong forward, Zirkzee is also quick with his feet and one to keep an eye on as the summer months continue.

Nico Williams – Spain

Spain have arguably been the most impressive nation at Euro 2024 so far and a large part of their success is thanks to the efforts of Athletic Bilbao winger Nico Williams.

The 21-year-old scored a fine goal against Georgia in the last 16 and is rapidly becoming one of the most in-demand players in Europe.

In the same match, he became the first player to score, assist and complete 100% of their passes in a game since Euros records began in 1980.

He has made over 120 senior appearances in LaLiga and although settled in Bilbao, could command a hefty transfer fee in the coming months.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham are all said to be interested in the youngster and could battle it out for his signature after Euro 2024.

Riccardo Calafiori – Italy

Current champions Italy may be out of Euro 2024, but there were some impressive cameos during their campaign.

Defender Riccardo Calafiori channelled his inner Alessandro Nesta in Germany, catching the eye of pundits and fans alike.

The 22-year-old missed the last 16 match against Switzerland – where Italy were knocked out – and things may have been different had he been available.

He was uncapped until the summer but is now being tipped for a Premier League switch from Bologna, alongside team-mate Zirkzee.

West Ham have been thrown into conversations for Calafiori but may face competition from some of the big six clubs.

Georges Mikautadze – Georgia

Georgia’s first-ever European Championship was a resounding success as they made the knockout stages.

It came to an abrupt end against Spain, but Georges Mikautadze had a tournament to remember.

He scored three goals from six shots and remains the joint-top scorer ahead of the next stage, despite his country being out.

Mikautadze was also on fire for Metz in the domestic campaign, scoring 13 goals in 20 Ligue 1 appearances.

The 23-year-old would be a bargain buy for any Premier League club this summer.
