Idrissa Gueye    M    Lille
Aston Villa and Lille have agreed to a transfer fee of 9 million to bring the midfielder to England this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Villa's bid was accepted by Lille, and the Senegal midfielder is expected to arrive in England on Thursday to discuss personal terms of a contract.
Florian Thauvin    M    Marseille
Marseille have rejected a bid of almost 11 million for Thauvin from Newcastle, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Newcastle was willing to pay the amount as a lump sum, but the highly rated midfielder was deemed more valuable than the offer. Marseille originally paid 12 million to Lille for the player.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette exploded onto the scene this season for Lyon, totaling 31 goals and six assists in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

The 24-year-old was productive throughout the campaign and even scored 10 times during a six-game goal streak at one point en route to the Golden Boot. A 17-goal season in 2013-14 put the Frenchman on the radar, but he emerged as a top attacking talent this year, as only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo scored more goals in a major European league. Lacazette is being chased by several major clubs at the moment, and Lyon may find if difficult to keep hold of him despite their strong desire to do so.
Gregory Van Der Wiel    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain defender Van der Wiel has been offered to Manchester United after the club missed out on signing Dani Alves from Barcelona, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender has one year left on his current contract, and Roma is also reportedly interested in a potential transfer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic enjoyed another stellar season for PSG, netting 28 goals with six assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

The 33-year-old Swede showed that he can still handle the wear and tear of a long season at his advancing age, as he finished the year on a torrid stretch of 12 goals and 4 assists in his final eight league matches. Several top Premier League clubs have expressed mild interest in Ibra if he can be had at a discount rate, but a move abroad doesn't seem imminent.
Anthony Martial    F    Monaco
Martial has drawn interest from Tottenham, who are expected to open transfer talks with Monaco over the forward this week, the Mirror reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Martial is just 19 years old, but is expected to command a fee around 18 million after leading Monaco with 12 goals across all competitions this season. One of France's most highly regarded prospects, Martial's potential addition could bolster Tottenham's strikeforce behind Harry Kane, especially considering the uncertain futures of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor.
Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder scored 15 goals and registered three assists in 37 appearances for Toulouse this season, marking his third straight campaign with double-digit goals.

Fantasy Analysis

The 24-year-old former futsal star has blossomed into a dangerous attacker in Ligue 1 and tested defenses all season with his speed and trickery. Several major sides from around Europe are reportedly after the Frenchman, and he could very well leave the club this summer.
Mevlut Erding    F    St. Etienne
Erding had a quiet season for St. Etienne as he managed just nine goals and one assist in 34 appearances in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

The Turk racked up 11 goals in just 18 Ligue 1 starts for the club last season after transferring from Rennes, but never regained his scoring touch this season. Erding has been linked with a move away from St. Etienne, with several Premier League clubs reportedly interested in the imposing striker, but it remains to be seen where he will end up next season.
Kvin Berigaud    F    Evian
Berigaud had a quiet season for Montpellier, accounting for just four goals and four assists in 33 total appearances.

Fantasy Analysis

The Frenchman just never put a consistent string of production together and was goalless in his final 13 games of the season. Berigaud's playing time suffered with the likes of Lucas Barrios, Anthony Mounier and Morgan Sanson in the fold, so he will likely need to win his place this summer.
Nabil Fekir    M    Lyon
Fekir, who was recently named Ligue 1's Young Player of the Year, finished this season with 13 goals and nine assists in 34 appearances for Lyon.

Fantasy Analysis

Fekir's breakout 2014/15 campaign saw him earn his first international appearance for France and nearly lead Lyon to the Ligue 1 title as well. While partnering top-scoring teammate Alexandre Lacazette, Fekir still managed 13 goals of his own and his nine assists ranked fourth-best league-wide. Overall, the 21-year-old's emergent campaign places him among the country's best attackers heading into next season.
