Dries Mertens is among Belgian footballers linked with Premier League transfers this summer.

5 Belgian footballers who could move to the Premier League this summer

Are these Belgian footballers making Premier League transfers?

FootyOn look at five Belgian footballers who could make Premier League transfers this summer.

More than 20 players from Belgium have turned out in England’s top-flight this term.

This is evidence that the Premier League is a desirable destination for footballers from that country.

Never mind Brexit, English sport certainly isn’t severing ties with Brussels!

In light of this, we look at five Belgian footballers who may be making Premier League transfers ahead of next term…

Bjorn Engels

One of the Belgian footballers who could be playing Premier League football next season is Bjorn Engels.

Five of the players from Belgium we’ve seen in the English top-flight this season are defenders.

Those include first-choice international Belgian footballers Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen at Spurs.

Across north London, meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with Club Brugge centre back Engels.

Compatriot Thomas Vermaelen used to captain the Gunners.

It promises to be a summer of change at the Emirates, and Arsenal with or without retaining long-serving manager Arsene Wenger could freshen up the heart of their defence with Engels.

Dries Mertens

Will Dries Mertens join Man Utd?

Necessity being the mother of invention has seen usual Napoli winger Mertens switch positions to lead their attack.

The summer sale of Gonzalo Higuain from Naples to dominant Italian force Juventus and injury to replacement Arkadiusz Milik pushed Mertens up front.

It has proven an incredible conversion as he’s scored 28 goals in all competitions.

Mertens’ exploits in front of goal have reportedly alerted Manchester United.

The Red Devils are BetVictor’s 3/1 favourites to sign him before the transfer window closes in September.

Youri Tielemans

Another up-and-coming Belgian talent is Youri Tielemans.

Another up-and-coming Belgian talent is Youri Tielemans.

Anderlecht midfielder Tielemans turns 20 in early May and recently captained his club in their Europa League quarter-final first leg against Man Utd.

Top clubs across Europe are said to be tracking him, including Everton and Premier League champions-elect Chelsea.

A tally of 18 goals in all competitions this term surely shows Tielemans can play at a higher level.

This is definitely one player with huge potential, and a number of fellow Belgian footballers currently ply their trade at both Goodison Park and Stamford Bridge.

We advise you keep an eye out for Tielemans’ name among Premier League transfers this summer.

Radja Nainggolan

Holding midfielder Radja Naiggolan is another of the Belgian footballers linked to the Premier League.

Roma’s tough-tackling Nainggolan is another of the Belgian footballers linked with a switch to England.

Unique hairstyles and aggression on the pitch are what we can expect from him.

Despite having the PFA Player of the Year sweeping things up in N’Golo Kante, Chelsea are also thought to be interested in fellow midfielder Nainggolan.

Antonio Conte will be able to offer Champions League football to his prospective signing.

The Blues are strong 2/1 favourites with BetVictor to net Nainggolan this summer.

Yannick Ferreira Carrasco

Could Yannick Ferreira Carrasco come to the Premier League if Atletico Madrid win the Champions League?

There’s also been steady Premier League interest in Atletico Madrid winger Carrasco despite him signing a new deal at the Vicente Calederon this year.

If Atleti were to win the Champions League, and they must get past bitter city rivals Real Madrid just to reach the final, then he may look to move on.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd have all been previously linked with capturing Carrasco.

Although currently missing with a shoulder problem, he’s had his best scoring season to date, netting 14 in all competitions.
