Vincent Aboubakar (Besiktas)
The Cameroon international signed a short-term deal with Besiktas on a free transfer from Porto last summer and has proven to be a revelation in Turkey.

Newcastle were keen to sign Giroud on loan during last season’s January transfer window, only for the France international to enjoy a rebirth under Frank Lampard.

André Ayew (Swansea)
Ayew’s future may well depend on which division the Swans find themselves in next season.
The 31-year-old’s 31 goals over the past two seasons have twice helped Swansea reach the league play-offs and he hopes to inspire their return to the Premier League in this season’s version.
