As of today, there are certain names that keep the media fixated with transfer rumours. These are the players that everybody loves to talk about and plan for. It’s more fun to speculate what clubs they could move to rather than think about what’s best for them.
They trend on twitter every day and dominate the headlines, why? Because they are the most sought after players in the world.
Here are the five most sought after players in the world.
5Hector Bellerín – Arsenal
A shortage of top quality full-backs has led to an above average defender in the form of Hector Bellerín becoming a prized asset in world football.
The kid that Arsène Wenger converted from a right winger into a right-back has come along leaps and bounds in his time at Arsenal. The Spaniard has learnt how to use his pace to his advantage in 1v1 situations and also ensured his pace contributes to Arsenal’s attacking phase of play.
That balance between attack and defence has packaged him as an attractive proposition for clubs around Europe, especially his boyhood team of Barcelona.
The last two world class right-backs in world football were Dani Alves and Phillippe Lahm, since then not many have broken through. So a right-back with Bellerin’s pace, technical ability and positional awareness instantly becomes the most sought after defender in the world.
