Erling Braut Haaland knows how to progress from one level to the next and a move to Borussia Dortmund will of course be one really easy to understand. A life on the bench or part of a heavy rotation policy at a bigger club could have stopped him evolving and Dortmund looks a solid choice.
Christian Eriksen shows his importance when called on, and the fact that Jose Mourinho needs his little Dane could see him at Tottenham also over this transfer window, being allowed to leave in the summer for free.

David Moyes is said to be on his way back to West Ham who just “minutes” after the defeat v. Leicester sacked their current man Manuel Pellegrini.
