Where it’s at: Zenit St Petersburg say they have still to receive ’suitable, interesting offers’ for the 27-year-old, though Arshavin has protested that they are pricing him out of a move.
Deal prospects: 70 per cent – Tottenham have the cash after selling Robbie Keane.
Price: £20 million.
Where it’s at: Chelsea have made offers of £25 million and £27 million, only to see his price escalate with each bid. Real are ready to do business at £30 million.
Deal prospects: 80 per cent – Robinho is keen to move and Chelsea are determined to do the deal.
Price: £30 million.
Where it’s at: United have offered £20 million for the Bulgarian, Spurs want more than £30 million. Deteriorating relations between the clubs, with Spurs reporting United to the Premier League, have left the transfer in limbo.
Deal prospects: 70 per cent – Berbatov has been agitating for a move for months and Tottenham will not want an unhappy player undermining team spirit.
Price: £32 million.
Who: Barely a day goes by without Real Madrid publicly talking up their hopes of signing the Manchester United forward.
Where it’s at: United say Ronaldo is not for sale. The club owners, the Glazer family, support that stance and United have still not received a bid from Real for a player whose ankle injury will sideline him until October.
Deal prospects: 10 per cent – It would require a humiliating climbdown by United for any deal to be done.
Price: £75 million.
Gareth BarryWho: The proposed transfer of Barry from Aston Villa to Liverpool has become a soap opera this summer.
Where it's at: Liverpool's £19 million capture of Robbie Keane has put a spanner in the works.
Deal prospects: 25 per cent – there will have to be several outgoing transfers before Rafael Benitez is able to fund his attempts to sign the England midfielder.
Price: £18 million.
James HarperWho: Midfielder James Harper has been the subject of many covetous eyes since Reading were relegated.
Where it's at: Middlesbrough are interested but have perfected the art of transfer-window brinkmanship.
Deal prospects: 65 per cent – Lee Cattermole's move from the Riverside to Wigan is likely to oil the wheels.
Price: £5 million.
Where it's at: His former Tottenham team-mates Pascal Chimbonda and Teemu Tainio have already moved to Wearside and Sunderland are working tigerishly behind the scenes to make it a hat-trick of arrivals from north London.
Deal prospects: 60 per cent – More often than not the Sunderland manager's powers of persuasion end up with him getting his man.
Price: £7 million.
Steven PienaarCost: £2 million.
When? April 30.
Why a bargain? Pienaar was a crucial member of the Everton squad while on loan last season. If he can build on his solid start, the South African could become one of the Premier League's top midfielders.
Mark SchwarzerCost: Free.
When? May 21.
Why a bargain? This was a real coup for Fulham as Schwarzer has been one of the best goalkeepers in the country for some years, and he rejected Juventus and Bayern Munich. At 35, the Australian has at least three more good years ahead of him.
Giovanni dos SantosCost: £4.7 million, rising to £8.6 million.
When? June 10.
Why a bargain? This transfer almost passed under the radar, but the 19-year-old Giovanni was rated by Barcelona as being as promising a prospect as Lionel Messi. The Mexican can set the Premier League alight if he plays regularly for Tottenham this season.
DecoCost: £7.8 million.
When? June 30.
Why a bargain? To secure a player like Deco for well under £10 million has to be good business. The former Barcelona playmaker might have struggled last season but, at 30, he is still young and hungry enough to rediscover his former panache.
Paul RobinsonCost: £3.5 million.
When? July 25.
Why a bargain? Robinson's form and confidence plummeted last season, as he lost his place for Spurs and England, but he should be rejuvenated by a move to Blackburn. For a man who was England's established No 1 only a year ago, £3.5 million could prove a steal.
Dave KitsonCost: £5.5 million.
When? July 18.
Why a bargain? Not the cheapest of buys, but Kitson will more than repay his transfer fee if he keeps promoted Stoke afloat this season. The former Reading forward, as adept on the ground as he is in the air, could do just that.
