Time to start writing a shopping list.
As is the relentlessly monotonous nature of Premier League football, an unfortunate trio of teams are once again doomed to relegation come the end of the season.
The bottom three teams are then made to suffer more during the summer as star players depart one by one.
With West Brom, Stoke and Southampton in real danger, and Swansea, Huddersfield, West Ham and Crystal Palace not completely out of the woods, let’s look at which relegation-threatened players would walk into a top six team (okay… squad) next season…
Palace are as close as a one-man team the Premier League has to offer.
Zaha is the start and end of the Eagles’ attacking threat.
One of the the best dribblers in the league, the Ivory Coast international was left to rot in Man United’s reserves during his stint at Old Trafford.
Having matured and improved his composure in front of goal, he would be an asset to one of the big boys if given a second chance.
Most suited to: Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal
One of the Prem’s top five in his position.
A superb option for any club on the look out for a new first-choice left-back on the cheap.
Most suited to: Man United, Man City, Spurs
West Ham’s creator-in-chief has put himself in contention for Argentina’s World Cup squad despite the Hammers’ disappointing season.
A technically gifted No10, Lanzini could fill the hole left by Philippe Coutinho at Anfield perhaps?
Most suited to: Liverpool
The La Masia-trained spoiler features in the top ten for tackles, fouls and yellow cards in the league this season — he gets about.
Plays a simple game in possession and never fails to put a shift in.
Easy to manager and tactically aware, the Prem’s big boys would be foolish to dismiss him without careful consideration.
Most suited to: Arsenal, Man United, Chelsea
Sir Alex Ferguson was ‘stunned’ when he found out Louis van Gaal had sold Evans to West Brom in 2015.
The Northern Ireland centre-back is highly-rated by a host of top managers and has clearly been the Baggies’ best player over the last two years.
An experienced defender with three Premier League medals around his neck — his £3million relegation release clause is more than tempting.
Most suited to: Arsenal, Man City
It’s not easy to tame the Austrian maverick but, to his credit, David Moyes has proved it is possible.
The enigmatic forward is a nightmare to defend against at his best, combining power and pace with a steely determination to prove his doubters wrong.
Would be a terrific impact sub.
Most suited to: Chelsea, Spurs
Makes the game look extraordinarily easy at times.
At 6ft tall and lean as Snoop Dogg at Carnival, his natural athleticism and versatility make him truly modern central midfielder.
Still a raw talent in many ways, two seasons at Juventus have given him valuable experience at a young age.
You get the feeling he could be a world-beater if the right manager got hold of him.
Most suited to: Spurs, Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal
Honourable mentions to: Jay Rodriguez, Jack Butland, Xherdan Shaqiri, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Alfie Mawson, Arthur Masuaku and Javier Hernandez.
