Morgan Schneiderlin, Christian Benteke and Jay Rodriguez are names that will doubtless generate innumerable transfer gossip column inches over the summer.
Yet, there are on-going concerns over the fitness of all three that mean their pursuers will be taking a distinct gamble if handing over the readies.
Schneiderlin has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham since this time last year, while Liverpool and Manchester United have also been attributed an interest.
Nonetheless, the 3/5 that he remains a Southampton player next season looks tempting after an injury-ravaged campaign.
The Frenchman currently faces an uphill battle to play any further part this season after sustaining a knee problem against the Lilywhites last time out.
It is his third prolonged health hiatus of 2014/15, with a total of ten games missed through injury according to transfermarkt.
The Belgian bruiser is all the rage at present, after helping himself to nine goals in his last ten appearances and Liverpool have been strongly rumoured to be harbouring a growing admiration.
However, it remains just a season on from the nadir of 2013/14, when the Aston Villa man missed a hefty 18 fixtures through four separate breakdowns, the last a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Having begun to show signs of being his old self again only recently, signing him for a projected £30m would represent quiet a gamble.
If Benteke looks a punt based on his history of recent injury concerns, at least he has two prolonged periods of Premier League prolificacy on his CV.
The same cannot be said for Rodriguez, who was cruelly cut down by an ACL injury towards the end of his ‘Harry Kane campaign’ in 2013/14.
On the sidelines for more than a year and yet to return to action, it might be prudent for Manchester City’s to hold off on their homegrown-player-hungry interest in services until after he has proved himself the same player once again.
