In this article, you’ll see the biggest names that are currently linked to the French first league. Ligue 1 has put out some great talent over the years and also bought up some of it. Whether you support Paris, Marseille, Lille, Nice, Monaco, or else, check out our Ligue 1 transfer predictions for this summer.
We might see some huge shocking departures from Ligue 1 this summer, but the French clubs have already started recruiting players for next season’s battles. In our Ligue 1 transfer predictions, you’ll find the most valuable players who are linked to a French first division club. Furthermore, this list only contains potential arrivals. Before we begin, we’ll let you know that it looks like a lot of young talent will be playing in France next year.
Milan Skriniar is Set to be the Biggest Ligue 1 Transfer This Summer
According to all online sportsbooks sites in France, Milan Skriniar is set to be the biggest arrival to Ligue 1 this summer. Skriniar is one of the most valuable centre-backs in the world right now and he could be a great addition to the Marquinhos-Kimpembe duo.
But the Inter centre-back’s addition could question the future of some of PSG’s current defenders. Skriniar’s contract expires in 2023 and he might improve, he might not. But with a current market value of €65 million, Inter could get at least €80 million for him.
The most recent official sources that linked the Slovakian national to Paris were around early-to-mid June. According to multiple sources, Skriniar has already agreed verbally to join the Ligue 1 champions. Now it all depends on how Inter responds. If the 27-year-old wants to leave, they might as well let him because letting him go as a free agent next year would be a huge blow to his current club. The probability of an upcoming transfer is getting higher with each day.
Boubakary Soumaré is About to Return to France After Just One Year in England
The 23-year-old midfielder joined Leicester last year but according to multiple sources, he might be returning to Ligue 1 soon. Soumaré left LOSC Lille a year ago but had fallen out with the Premier League side during the second part of the 21/22 campaign.
Soumaré couldn’t adapt to the playstyle at Leicester and his potential upcoming departure could be used to sign new midfielders this summer. Up until February this year Soumaré was a regular starter. But after showing no signs of apparent improvements he was dropped from the first team.
The latest reports have linked the young midfielder to Monaco. These rumours are fairly new and the probability of a transfer is over 65% now. A signing involving Soumaré could happen in the upcoming weeks. Should everything fall into place, the 23-year-old could be one of the biggest Ligue 1 transfers this summer. As of right now, Monaco’s odds of winning the league next season are 16.54 according to 20Bet Sportsbook.
Multiple Clubs are in the Race for Manor Solomon
The 22-year-old winger was linked to Nice but not even a week later newly promoted Premier League side Fulham have entered the transfer race. Solomon still has a year and a half left on his contract at Shakhtar Donetsk but online sportsbooks sites in France anticipates a transfer is about to happen. Rightly so, because Solomon looks like he’s far from his full potential. In 16 league appearances, he had 4 goals and 2 assists.
Between July and December last year, Donetsk only lost one match, when Solomon had an injury. The winger’s market value is currently around €18 million but if Shakthar play their cards right they might even get €30 million for him. That is of course if they’re willing to let him go. Where would you prefer to see Solomon? Do you think he would be better at Fulham or Nice?
Bryan Gil Wants to Prove Antonio Conte Wrong with His Performance
Gil had an interesting season. He had 37 appearances across 7 competitions, including LaLiga and the Premier League. He started with Tottenham, playing only 86 minutes across 9 matches. During the January transfer window, he was on loan at Valencia where he played 827 minutes across 13 matches. A more desired outcome, some would say, but Gil’s market value has decreased by €10 million in a couple of months.
Spurs don’t seem too keen on keeping the 21-year-old. Serie A side Sampdoria and Ligue 1 contenders Olympique Marseille are both interested in the Spanish winger. His move will also be influenced by his performance in the pre-season practices. Gil is currently trying to prove he is worthy to be included in Conte’s plans. There have been plenty of good signings already and you could check out our Premier League transfer predictions for more. Three clubs, three different leagues, what does the future hold for Bryan Gil?
Ligue 1 Transfer Predictions – Nuno Tavares to Marseille This Summer?
Arsenal bought Tavares from Benfica just a year ago for €8 million and his market value already doubled since then. It’s needless to say that the Gunners have some of the best young players in the world in their squad. Seeing how Tavares is bound to improve in the coming years, it makes sense that Arsenal is only considering a loan. A few weeks ago, Marseille presented a loan offer for the 22-year-old with an option to buy him permanently. The question is, is Arsenal willing to depart from the young prodigy already?
Tavares had 22 appearances in the Premier League and played a total of 1170 minutes for Arsenal. The left-back didn’t see much action between December and April however as he was benched for most of the matches. Marseille might want to move quickly because according to online sportsbooks sites in France, Atalanta are also interested in signing the Portuguese. Even if it’s only a loan, Nuno Tavares’ potential Ligue 1 transfer is one of the hottest predictions for this summer.
