With less than two weeks of the summer transfer window remaining HITC Sport looks at five players from La Liga who could make the switch to the Premier League at some stage in the future.
Linked with the Leicester City, the Spanish forward scored a superb 17 goals and assisted 10 for Deportivo La Coruna last season.
Adored by the Galicians’ fans, Lucas would slot well into Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester side. His persistence, directness and energy could prove perfect on the quick counter-attack that the English champions are now famous for.
Claudio Bravo (Barcelona to Manchester City)
Held up by only Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s injury, the Barcelona keeper’s transfer to Manchester City is thought to be close.
Joe Hart has been pushed out the side by Pep Guardiola, with the new Manchester City boss citing his distribution on the ground as not up to his expectations and not fit for the club's new style.
Manchester City's manager wants every advantage he can get, and Bravo can be the perfect supplier from the back. Playing at Barcelona, he’ll certainly have experience in using his feet the way the boss wants him to. And he can even score with one of them.
Jose Gimenez (Atletico Madrid to Arsenal)
Believe it or not, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is still searching for a centre-back. If he can finally pull a move off, and it is to be this one, then it could be well worth the wait.
Perhaps the most promising young defender in Spain, the quick and strong Uruguayan has shown he is not scared of a run-in, with Sergio Ramos and Luis Suarez providing battles in recent times.
Wenger will no doubt think the 21-year-old is overpriced at around £40 million, although he’d certainly repay that if he gets the chance to anchor the Arsenal defence for the next decade.
James Rodriguez (Real Madrid to Chelsea)
Out of favour at Real Madrid, where there is simply no room for the Colombian in the best XI due to Zidane’s reliance on Casemiro, Rodriguez departure would represent one of the biggest moves of the summer.
A Chelsea bid close to the £69 million Madrid paid Monaco for Rodriguez two years ago will have to be offered if president Florentino Perez will consider selling.
Bagging a player like Rodriguez would be a huge coup for Chelsea, who seem slender favourites to lure the star of the 2014 World Cup. Undoubtedly there will be many Chelsea fans hoping a deal can be done.
Raphael Varane (Real Madrid to Manchester United)
Although this move isn't likely to take place any time soon, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is a man who has already earned the French defender's trust.
The Portuguese takes great pride in the two years of development Mourinho provided Varane at Real Madrid, and it isn't inconceivable that the two could be reunited at Manchester United at some stage in the future, especially if the 22-year-old becomes increasingly frustrated at playing second-fiddle to Sergio Ramos and Pepe.
