Ferdi Kadioglu (Türkiye)

The Fenerbahçe defender has excelled in his side’s run to the quarter-finals, favouring attacking roles, on the left flank and, at times, in midfield. Kadioglu has also been linked with a move to Arsenal or Manchester City after excelling for his club, with Brighton, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund also showing interest recently.

Georges Mikautadze (Georgia)

With goals against Turkey, the Czech Republic and Portugal, the striker was instrumental in securing Georgia’s historic passage to the last 16 and finished the group stage as the competition’s top scorer. The 23-year-old continued his fine form at the end of the domestic campaign, when he scored 14 goals in 22 games on loan at Metz from Ajax. The French club signed him from the Dutch club in 2023 for £16m, but he made just nine appearances for the club and will now be sold for a small profit. Monaco and Roma are the main interested parties, despite interest from West Ham.

Ruben Vargas (Switzerland)

An incredible performance against Italy, which culminated in Switzerland qualifying for the quarter-finals against the defending champions, has brought the Augsburg striker to prominence. With nearly 50 caps despite being just 25, he was named man of the match after assisting Remo Freuler’s first goal and scoring a brilliant second against the Italians. Vargas was loaned to Crystal Palace last summer and also attracted interest from Fiorentina. However, other clubs are keeping a close eye on the player following his performances in Germany.

Jan Oblak (Slovenia)

It is still uncertain whether Oblak will leave Atlético Madrid, the club he has defended for a decade. But, at 31, he is certainly attracting the attention of many clubs, especially after his great performance against Portugal in the round of 16 on penalties. Although Diogo Costa stood out by saving three penalties in the game, Oblak was exceptional during the 120 minutes of Portuguese pressure and made Cristiano Ronaldo cry by saving his penalty in extra time.

Nico Williams (Spain)

The Athletic Bilbao striker was already on the radar of several big European clubs before the start of Euro 2024 and has impressed with his performances. Barcelona fans are keen that Williams could renew his partnership with young sensation Lamine Yamal next season, as he has reportedly expressed a preference for a move to Camp Nou. Arsenal and Liverpool are also keeping an eye on him, having long expressed interest. His club have not yet given up on convincing him to stay, but are likely to accept offers in excess of £50m.

Francisco Conceicao (Portugal)

They became the second father and son to score at a European Championship when Francisco came off the bench against the Czech Republic to score the winner, his first international goal since being called up by Roberto Martínez in March.

Baris Alper Yilmaz (Türkiye)

Although he did not score in the Eurocup, Yilmaz has had good performances in the Turkish team game. He also stood out for his courage and energy at the age of 24. Furthermore, Yilmaz was instrumental in helping Galatasaray overcome big rivals Fenerbahçe and win the Turkish championship last season, with seven goals scored and 12 assists. He is now in the sights of clubs in the Bundesliga, Serie A and the Premier League. Liverpool thus appears among the clubs that could continue to show interest in the coming weeks.

Ivan Schranz (Slovakia)

The 30-year-old had scored three goals for his country before the start of Euro 2024, the last of which came in October 2021. But the Slavia Prague player, who made his international debut at the age of 27, has managed to double that tally in just four appearances at the Euros. Also notable is the goal that almost gave Slovakia victory over England in the round of 16. With just one goal in 14 Czech league games for Slavia last season, he could pose a risk. However, he has shown he has the ability to play on the big occasions.
