Nick Bidwell profiles some of the most likely movers in the winter window.
Primarily a stopper, though also capable of slotting in at right-back or as a ball-winner in front of the defence, the uncompromising Swede – who started in all three of his country’s games at Euro 2016 – has a long list of admirers in Milan, Internazionale, Juventus, Napoli, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
Contractually tied to Benfica until 2020, the 22-year-old insists he is content at the Estadio da Luz and is in no hurry to leave for a more prestigious championship.
