15 Euro 2016 stars we'd love to see in the Premier League – and who they should sign for

It's a major tournament – which means prime shopping season. Greg Lea takes a look at what Euro 2016 has to offer today's ambitious bosses

1. Arkadiusz Milik, Poland

While Milik was guilty of missing key chances in the group stage, his all-round performances were excellent as Poland reached the last 16. A striker who likes to drop deep and link the play, Milik hit 21 goals for Ajax in the Eredivisie last term.

Who should sign him: Manchester United

2. Andriy Yarmolenko, Ukraine

Ukraine may have exited Euro 2016 without a single point or goal to their name, but they were a little unfortunate not to get more from clashes with Germany and Poland. Dynamo Kyiv winger Yarmolenko impressed in flashes even if he perhaps didn’t have the overall impact many were expecting, and his speed and direct dribbling would suit a number of Premier League clubs.

Who should sign him: Liverpool

3. Stephan Lichtsteiner, Switzerland

With Dani Alves set to sign for Juventus, Lichtsteiner’s future is somewhat uncertain – which means now is the perfect time for Premier League clubs to test the Serie A side’s resolve. The Switzerland full-back has the energy and stamina to bomb up and down the right flank for 90 minutes, while his experience of winning trophies on a regular basis will appeal to the Premier League’s elite.

Who should sign him: Chelsea

4. Kamil Glik, Poland

Poland didn’t concede a single goal in the group stage, with centre-half and captain Glik playing a significant role in their defensive solidity

Poland didn’t concede a single goal in the group stage, with centre-half Glik playing a significant role in their defensive solidity. A strong, robust and commanding figure, the Torino man would have no trouble adjusting to the physical demands of the Premier League. English outfits will have to be quick, though: recent reports suggest Monaco are currently leading the race for his signature.

Who should sign him: Arsenal

5. Leonardo Bonucci, Italy

Bonucci delivered one of the best individual showings of the European Championship so far in Italy’s 2-0 defeat of Belgium, with the Juventus defender equally adept at creating attacks as he is at destroying them. Labelled by Pep Guardiola as one of his favourite players of all-time, it will be difficult – but not impossible – to prise Bonucci away from Juve.

Who should sign him: Chelsea

6. Elseid Hysaj, Albania

Albania may have failed to make it out of Group A and into the knockout stage, but that didn’t prevent right-back Hysaj from receiving praise for his performances. The Napoli man, who was superb as Maurizio Sarri’s men challenged for the Serie A title last term, loves to get forward but is defensively sound too.

Who should sign him: Manchester United

7. Adam Nagy, Hungary

Hungary were one of the surprise packages in the first round in France, topping Group F ahead of Portugal, Iceland and Austria. The 21-year-old Nagy was one of their standout stars

Hungary were one of the surprise packages in the first round in France, topping Group F ahead of Portugal, Iceland and Austria. The 21-year-old Nagy was one of their standout stars, demonstrating a maturity and intelligence that belied his tender years. Deployed in the centre of midfield, the Ferencvaros player's crisp passing and acute positional sense caught the eye.

Who should sign him: Stoke

8. Simone Zaza, Italy

Zaza has only been at Juventus for a year but he could be on the way out this summer after starting only five Serie A matches in 2015/16. Strong, fast and aggressive, the 24-year-old also possesses a terrific touch and a left foot that is capable of both power and precision – he's regularly likened to Christian Vieri in Italy.

Who should sign him: Leicester
