Six Euro 2020 stars who could be Premier League-bound: Verratti, Hlozek, Kamara…

Planet Sport and Betfair highlight the players worth keeping an eye on this summer.

A major summer tournament, no Premier League matches and a host of unfamiliar names can only mean one thing: fevered transfer speculation.

With the eyes of the soccer world on the Euros it only needs one standout performance to get agents rubbing their hands and transfer fees spiralling.

With that in mind, Planet Sport has picked out one player from each group for whom Euro 2020 could provide a first-class ticket to the Premier League.

And in an exclusive chat with Betfair we find out the odds on those dream moves becoming a reality.

Group A: Marco Verratti

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder is one of Italy's true stars and he is somewhat unusual as he has rarely been linked with a move.

However, that could be about to change as he looks to be on his way out of the Parc Des Princes after nine years.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is a huge fan of Verratti from their time together in the French capital and it is little surprise that he is understood to have asked his Stamford Bridge bosses to make a move.

And, PSG's impending move for Liverpool's Gini Wijnaldum could very well smooth over his passage out of France.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom told us: "Italy head into this tournament with a great record under Roberto Mancini. He has rebuilt the squad since they failed to qualify for the last World Cup and there are a number of names in his squad that are attracting attention. One of those names is Marco Verratti, who has already been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, Chelsea are the favourites to sign him at 5/2, while Man United are 5/1."

Liverpool 9/1

Arsenal 16/1

Tottenham 20/1

Group B: Glen Kamara

One of the unsung heroes of Rangers' title charge - Kamara has emerged as a huge talent and the interest has followed.

He is not only essential to Steven Gerrard at Ibrox but also to Finland boss Markku Kanerva.

Kamara's performances during Rangers' outstanding European campaign really cemented the thinking that he could perform in the Premier League.

Kamara has already had a spell in England having come through the youth system with Arsenal under Arsene Wenger - but he departed before he could get his chance.

But it turns out that Kamara's career path could go full circle with Arsenal understood to be keeping close tabs on him - although the 25-year-old has a host of clubs chasing him.

Rosbottom: "Finland's Glen Kamara has impressed in Rangers' historic season and rumours about a move away have already been circulating. One of the teams that are apparently going to be keeping a close eye on him at the Euros is Arsenal. The Gunners are 5/1, along with Borussia Dortmund, to sign him, while Southampton are behind them at 7/1."

Lille 16/1

Group C: Marcel Sabitzer

Marcel Sabitzer comes into the European Championships with a big reputation and he really is one of those players who could earn himself a big move.

Already starring in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig - he has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and we know that north London duo Arsenal and Tottenham are keen.

Sabitzer has impressed in the Champions League and many onlookers feel he could be an astute signing - he looks well suited to the Premier League.

A dynamic attacking midfielder, Sabitzer will be a key performer for Austria if they are to do anything during the tournament.

Rosbottom: "Midfielders seem to be top of the wishlist for a number of Premier League clubs this summer, and with the Euros about to kick off there are a number of players who will be watched closely. One of those midfielders is Marcel Sabitzer. The Austrian has been linked with a move to the UK and it could be a battle between the two north London clubs to sign him."

Man City 10/1

Group D: Adam Hlozek

Adam Hlozek is a player with huge potential and could emerge as one of the real breakthrough stars of Euro 2020.

The 18-year-old is currently with Sparta Prague, but has already been the subject of interest from the likes of Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

Sources in Czech Republic believe Hlozek has the potential to be a true great, which is saying something considering it is the nation that produced Pavel Nedved.

West Ham are the only English side who have really taken a keen interest in Hlozek, although that is not to say that others are not looking.

But the Hammers have a big advantage having already secured a couple of Czech players who have both settled brilliantly at the club in the shape of Tomas Soucek and Vladimír Coufal.

West Ham have been considering making a firm move before the Euros, but instead they have waited and will be seeing how he performs on one of the biggest stages in soccer.

Rosbottom: "West Ham fans will be keeping an eye on Czech Republic at this Euros, with their midfield rock Tomas Soucek set to play a key role for his country, and according to reports they could be looking at a potential new signing in Adam Hlozek who has been linked with a move to London. David Moyes' side are the favourites to sign him at 7/2, but they face tough opposition in the race to sign him, with Juventus 11/2 and Borussia Dortmund 7/1."

West Ham 7/2

Juventus 11/2

Borussia Dortmund 7/1

Bayern Munich 9/1

Group E: Paul Torres

One of the most talked about defenders in Europe, Pau Torres' reputation has been growing and growing this season.

Manchester United first looked at the Villarreal centre-half in 2019 and they have maintained their interest in him.

United's scouts believe Torres is the man who should be signed this summer, ahead of the likes of French starlet Jules Kounde.

But United are not alone in liking Torres, who is in line to start for Spain at the Euros. Indeed, Real Madrid have him very high on their list of summer targets, with Sergio Ramos already departed and Raphael Varane considering his future.

Following his performance in the Europa League final, many United fans are hoping he does indeed turn up at Old Trafford.

Rosbottom: "While Spain aren't the same side that won the Euros and World Cup over a decade ago, they have plenty of young talent that look set to flourish in the coming weeks at the Euros. One of those is 24-year-old defender Pau Torres, who has already been linked with a move away from Villarreal. Manchester United will know quite a bit about him from their Europa League final defeat and the Red Devils are joint favourites to sign him at 5/2. However, they will have to beat Real Madrid to his signature, with Los Blancos also 5/2 to be his next club."

Pau Torres' next club

Man Utd 5/2

Real Madrid 5/2

Barcelona 4/1

Atletico Madrid 5/1

Man City 7/1

Chelsea 10/1

Liverpool 14/1

Group F: Pedro Goncalves

Portugal have one of the most talented squads at the European Championship. To even get into their midfield you have to be a huge talent and that is exactly what Pedro Goncalves is.

Likened to Bruno Fernandes for good reason, Goncalves was the best player in Portugal's domestic league with Sporting Lisbon. Full of goals and assists, the 22-year-old is a huge talent.

Despite having Fernandes already, Manchester United are firmly in the picture to recruit him - but there is fierce competition for his services with almost all of the top Premier League clubs in contention for him.

Many teams hesitated over the signing of Fernandes, but it seems unlikely the same thing will happen over Goncalves.

Rosbottom: "Clubs are always looking for the next big player. Manchester United certainly found one of them when they signed Bruno Fernandes and they are currently the favourites to sign Portugal's next rising star in Pedro Goncalves. The Red Devils are joint favourites at 4/1, with Liverpool, to sign him, while Arsenal are 6/1 to be his next club."

Pedro Goncalves' next club

Man Utd 4/1

Liverpool 4/1

Arsenal 6/1

Tottenham 8/1

Chelsea 8/1
