Transfer-listed: Which Premier League players are on the market?

Who will be on the move in the coming weeks? We have picked out a player from each Premier League club who could be up for sale.

Transfer-listed: Which Premier League players are on the market?

As we move through July, the pace of the transfer market is really starting to pick up in the Premier League. While the top sides look to build for another title challenge, big-spending Everton hope to close the gap and the rest of the league are largely aiming to secure safety as soon as possible. Huge money is getting thrown around again, with centre-backs and centre-forwards particularly in demand.

Here, we have picked out a player from each top flight club who could be on the move in the coming weeks...

Josh King (AFC Bournemouth)

Despite scoring 16 times in the Premier League last season, King's place at Bournemouth has been put under pressure by the signing of Jermain Defoe. Unsurprisingly, the Norway international has since been linked with moves away. He would cost a hefty fee, though, and, at this stage, is a one-season wonder. Callum Wilson might have been set for a summer move had he not suffered a knee injury in February.

Potential suitors: Everton, Tottenham

Joshua King of AFC Bournemouth

Calum Chambers (Arsenal)

It is a summer of change at Arsenal after they missed out on Champions League qualification, with Kieran Gibbs and Olivier Giroud already seemingly pushed out of the picture by new recruits. Chambers is perhaps the most exciting player potentially on offer, though. He was quietly impressive for Middlesbrough last season and he can play in the centre and on the right of the defence.

Potential suitors: Everton, Newcastle

Lewis Dunk (Brighton and Hove Albion)

After working so hard to earn promotion, few Brighton players are likely to head for the exit - with the exception of David Stockdale. Lewis Dunk is a player who has previously been linked with a move, though, and he could look for a club with loftier aspirations while his stock is high. It is much more likely Chris Hughton will welcome key incomings, however.

Potential suitors: Crystal Palace, Newcastle

Lewis Dunk of Brighton and Hove Albion

Andre Gray (Burnley)

Almost certain to be on the move this summer, Gray has turned down a new contract at Burnley and that could mean, in this world of inflated fees, he will be available at a knockdown price. A speedy forward whose introduction to the top flight was marred by off-field issues, he may well end up playing second fiddle to a more prolific forward at a bigger club.

Potential suitors: Newcastle, West Ham

Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea)

There is plenty of movement in the striking department at Stamford Bridge with Tammy Abraham - on loan - and Dominic Solanke departing, while Diego Costa may also be on his way. That would suggest Batshuayi is likely to stay, but he was left frustrated by a lack of opportunities last season despite impressing when he did play. Should Chelsea replace Costa, the Belgium international might better fancy his chances elsewhere.

Potential suitors: Everton, West Ham

Andros Townsend (Crystal Palace)

Although he was seemingly available in January, it might be a little more difficult to convince Palace to part with Townsend now. After a slow start to life back in London, the England winger ended the season in fine form. Former club Newcastle, among others, will be keen to see how he fits in under new boss Frank de Boer at Selhurst Park.

Potential suitors: Newcastle, Southampton

James McCarthy (Everton)

Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku are to make expensive targets this summer, but Everton's spending splurge is also likely to force McCarthy out of the club. After impressing in his first three seasons at Goodison Park, he struggled for game time last season under Ronald Koeman. A handsome price tag should not keep others from pursuing the talented midfielder.

Potential suitors: Watford, West Brom

Nahki Wells (Huddersfield Town)

Like Brighton, Huddersfield will be looking to keep the key men from their promotion campaign - while adding others to the group. Wells has previously interested Premier League clubs, though, and new man Laurent Depoitre provides an alternative to the 10-goal striker. Huddersfield Town would surely rather keep the 27-year-old, but a decent fee could allow them to continue strengthening in other areas.

Potential suitors: Burnley, Newcastle

Nahki Wells of Huddersfield Town

Demarai Gray (Leicester City)

After winning the Premier League title in 2015-16, Leicester have settled back into the pack. With that in mind, the players who enjoyed that fine run - like Riyad Mahrez - are starting to assess their options. While the Algeria international sparkled in that incredible season, Gray may well be a better option for interested clubs. Younger, quicker and with the potential to grow, he could star if given a chance.

Potential suitors: Liverpool, Tottenham

Demarai Gray of Leicester City

Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)

Every club seems to be shopping for a centre-forward this summer and Sturridge - a star in Liverpool's 2013-14 title challenge - remains a great option. He has struggled with injuries and then failed to displace Roberto Firmino at Anfield, but the England international tends to score whenever he steps onto the pitch. If the price is not too outlandish, there are likely to be plenty of interested parties.

Potential suitors: Newcastle, West Ham

Joe Hart (Manchester City)

With a number of players returning from loans, City - like Arsenal - will hope to recoup big money from the sales of fringe men this summer. Hart looks certain to be among the men departing, but his situation is made more complicated by his hefty wage demands and the club's refusal to allow another loan move. Most of the other top sides are settled in the goalkeeping department, too, and the England man may have to look a little further down the table.

Potential suitors: Newcastle, West Ham

Chris Smalling (Manchester United)

England international Smalling was arguably United's star defender prior to the arrival of Jose Mourinho, but the former Chelsea boss has since recruited Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof. Now, the ex-Fulham defender finds himself some way down the pecking order at Old Trafford. He would make a great signing for the majority of Premier League clubs, though, and there will be interest in his signature.

Potential suitors: Arsenal, Tottenham

Chancel Mbemba (Newcastle United)

Mbemba's situation at St James' Park is a peculiar one. He impressed in his first campaign in England despite relegation, but then scarcely featured in the Championship as Rafa Benitez secured promotion. With Florian Lejeune now arriving at Newcastle, too, his opportunities again look like they will be few and far between. He undoubtedly has the talent to star in the top flight, though.

Potential suitors: Arsenal, Crystal Palace

Chancel Mbemba of Newcastle United

Charlie Austin (Southampton)

Southampton looked to have got a bargain when they picked up Austin for just £4million from Queens Park Rangers, but it has not quite worked out for him at St Mary's. Injuries have limited the forward's impact and the mid-season signing of Manuel Gabbiadini means he is no longer assured of regular football when he is fit. The 28-year-old's fine earlier form for QPR should tempt a few rival clubs, however.

Potential suitors: Newcastle, West Brom

Ryan Shawcross (Stoke City)

Despite an impressive and lengthy career at Stoke, Shawcross is yet to commit his future to the club. The Potters captain has just a year remaining on his current deal and it has been suggested that he could look for a move elsewhere this summer. His stock is not quite as high as it has been in years past, but there would be plenty of interested top flight clubs.

Potential suitors: Leicester, West Brom

Alfie Mawson (Swansea City)

Hopes of a summer switch for Fernando Llorente look to have been dashed by injury and Swansea simply must stick to their guns and keep Gylfi Sigurdsson, their inspirational star man. Few others impressed for Paul Clement's side last season, but Mawson was one of them. His top flight debut campaign was a solid one and he has already been linked to clubs higher up the table.

Potential suitors: Southampton, Tottenham

Alfie Mawson of Swansea City

Kevin Wimmer (Tottenham Hotspur)

If Mawson (above) is to arrive at Tottenham, it is likely that Wimmer will be on the way out. The Austria international has served as a back-up to Spurs' first-choice defensive pairing, but it looks as though he could now depart in search of regular football. Although he will not be cheap, and could favour a move abroad, he is a decent option for a mid-table club.

Potential suitors: Southampton, West Brom

Troy Deeney (Watford)

Mr Watford he may be, but Deeney fell out of favour under Walter Mazzarri last season. While the manager has since been replaced by Marco Silva, that has not stopped other clubs from registering an interest in the club captain. The forward represents Watford's most saleable asset and he could be moved on if they have big plans for the summer market.

Potential suitors: Everton, Leicester

Salomon Rondon (West Bromwich Albion)

Prior to joining West Brom, Rondon had long been linked with moves to top clubs. While that has not ceased completely - Barcelona were mentioned earlier this year - it is unlikely that he could now command a starting spot at a Champions League side after performing inconsistently at the Hawthorns. West Brom could look to cash in on their forward, though, and he represents a handy back-up option.

Potential suitors: Everton, Tottenham

Andy Carroll (West Ham United)

What could have been? Carroll looked like the next big thing when he left Newcastle for Liverpool. That move did not work out, but he has impressed in spells at West Ham. Unfortunately, injuries have prevented the forward fromconsistently playing and scoring - and patience might just have run out at the Olympic Stadium. The Hammers struggled last season and they are now shopping for proven goalscorers.

Potential suitors: Crystal Palace, Newcastle
