Three PL stars La Liga may steal in the future: Arsenal & Liverpool men feature

After La Liga boss Javier Tebas said he wanted to bring 'the best 500 players in the world' to Spain, we look at three more stars the Premier League could be set to lose.

This week La Liga boss Javier Tebas said he wants to bring the best players in the world to the Spanish top flight, in order to rival the attraction of the Premier League on a global scale.

This summer has seen another of the Premier League's top individuals up sticks and head to Spain for the fourth successive year, after Cesc Fabregas, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and then Luis Suarez all traded the UK for one of La Liga's top two. It hasn't just been England that have suffered either, with Ligue 1 and Serie A also seeing record sales to Real Madrid over the last five years.

"We are not going to stop. We want the best 500 players," said Tebas.

"We want to make sure we have the biggest clubs and also the best players from the whole world in our league.

"It is impossible to compare us with the Premier League from a commercial perspective," he added. "What we are trying to do is get closer to them.

Though Arsenal have brought big name players to England from Tebas's division in that same time frame, it is only because Real Madrid and Barcelona allowed it, or allowed it to bring a bigger star the other way.

Below we look at three of the Premier League's top players that could be at risk in the near future, all having enjoyed outstanding seasons recently:

Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) - The Argentine has long been linked with a return to La Liga having starred there as a forward for Atletico Madrid. He was arguably the superstar signing that turned Manchester City from a well funded hopeful into genuine title winners. 

If any English side can resist the money set to be offered for another of the Premier League's top stars, it is City, but even they felt the pinch with the FFP restrictions this year. Given Aguero's affiliation to Spain, something we have seen can continue to pull South Americans to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, it may take the forward to submit a transfer request to push a move through.

Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) - The youngest of the three mentioned, Arsenal's Welsh star may see his stock rise to the level of countryman Gareth Bale if he has a full season displaying the form of last year. And like Bale, he may be tempted into a move to one of the Spanish giants. Again, Arsenal may have the financial clout to turn down bids of £50 million plus, but unless the Gunners are Premier League winners or mere points away, he too may be hearing about how great it is to win the Champions League by former North London rival Bale.

Arsenal lost Fabregas to Barcelona when the Spaniard was of a similar superb level, and there have already been rumours that the ex Cardiff player is on the radar of the Catalonian side.

Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) - Liverpool's Englishman is as of this moment, the most obvious replacement for the departed Luis Suarez. It is very possible that whoever Brendan Rodgers brings in, he will be support to the former Chelsea man. Sturridge proved last season that though he may not be able to encourage his side in the same fashion as the Uruguayan, he possesses the same raw goalscoring, and therefore match winning ability. Suarez had a strike rate of 61 goals in 81 games (one goal every 1.33 games) over the last two seasons, while his former teammate was just behind with 35 in 49 (one goal every 1.4 goals games).

If Sturridge can step his level up to anything like that displayed by the reigning PFA Player of the Year, he may well find himself a target for both La Liga giants, with Real Madrid in particular still said to be chasing striking reinforcements.

Will the Premier League's top clubs be able to resist approaches for their players from La Liga in the future?
