The overwhelming majority of summer transfer "news" is baseless speculation and rumor-mongering. Here's your chance to make haphazard guesses about where players will end up so that if your random guessing is better than someone else's random guessing, they will think you know more than you actually do.
 
Two notable transfers already completed are Memphis Depay (PSV to Manchester United for 25M) and James Milner (City to Liverpool, free).

Caveat #1: I am terrible at this, so ignore my predictions in the post below.
Caveat #2: The list is nowhere near complete, just what I could think of in ~10min, so suggest additions and I'll add them.

Not sure if he is considered a top flight attacker, but Charlie Austin will likely end up somewhere. Given their financial situation, would be hard pressed seeing QPR keeping him in next year's Championship
