With the coronavirus-provoked cash crisis engulfing football clubs this summer, teams across Europe will be hunting some bargain buys ahead of the delayed 2020-21 season.
With LaLiga concluding last month ahead of various Spanish sides taking part in European competition next week, many players will be hopeful of a big-money, illustrious move to one of Europe’s powerhouses.

20. THOMAS LEMAR
Atletico Madrid do not want to sell their prized asset Jan Oblak or their record signing Joao Felix this summer.
Jose Gimenez is another player who Diego Simeone desperately does not want to lose.
But the club’s financial situation dictates that they will have to cash-in on someone this summer and it could well be the French winger Lemar who has never convinced in the Spanish capital, but must still have some of the magic that made him such an exciting prospect at Monaco.
He is still a reported target of Arsenal’s.

19. UNAI BUSTINZA
The 28-year-old defender is too good for Spain’s second division, which is where his Leganes now find themselves after relegation on the last day.
No one did more for their battle to avoid the drop than Bustinza, who was on crutches shouting from the stands for the third-last game and then miraculously recovered to be back out on the pitch for the final two matches.
He can play at centre back in a two or a three, at right back, or even right wing back.
Value £2.9m (€3.2m)
Leganes defender Unai Bustinza deserves a move-away after his side’s relegation from LaLiga
18. TAKE KUBO
It would only be a loan, because there is no way Real Madrid will allow their 19-year-old Japan international to leave for good.
He probably won’t go back to them yet – but he can’t stay at relegated Mallorca.

17. MARC ROCA
Perhaps not the Sergio Busquets clone that some thought he might be when he first emerged, but 23-year-old defensive midfielder Roca remains one of the best young players in his position.
Espanyol were relegated so will have to listen to offers. He even added goals and game-changing passes in the final third to his game this season.
Value £12.7m (€14m)
Espanyol defensive midfielder Marc Roca added goals to his game throughout this campaign
16. CUCHO HERNANDEZ
Now back at Watford, Cucho’s year at Mallorca ended in relegation but he did all he could to keep them up.
His brilliant goal put them 1-0 up against Granada in the penultimate game of the…
