The young Serb talent, often quoted to be gifted with impressive acceleration and exceptional qualities, was instrumental in Benfica’s inspiring Europa League campaign last year. With a big name leaving the club this summer, the Merseysiders can rely on this boy to deliver some magical moments and clinical performances.

After trying their luck with Pablo Osvaldo last season, Southampton F.C. have signed another Italian Striker this summer. Graziano Pelle, coming from Feyenoord, is being thought as a replacement for Rickie Lambert with similar fashion of play. The highly experienced forward, who had put the ball behind net 23 times in 28 matches last season, can make a difference with his clever positioning and movement, to see the saints earn an Europa League spot. But on a whole, it will be quite interesting to see whether he survives the strenuous path from Eredivisie to Premier League with a handful of failures down the history line.

The long term Manchester United target Ander Herrera landed finally on Old Trafford this time around. After a disastrous season last year, a lot depends on this Spaniard and his play-making ability as far as their premier league success is concerned. The former Athletic Bilbao youngster will stabilise the fragile midfield of the red devils and tantalise to bring smile in the united fans’ faces. The duty of winning the midway battle and providing the ball in the final third is likely to be bestowed upon him by the new manager Van Gaal who certainly knows how to use his artilleries.
