We've already seen several key signings by Premier League clubs this summer with many new prospects coming in from La Liga. But in reality, we're also going to probably see several key players leave their Premier League clubs this summer.
Here are the top 10 high-profile players most likely to leave:
Liverpool has told Luis Suarez that he must have hand in an official transfer request if he wants to leave the club this summer. The Uruguay international, who is currently playing at The Confederations Cup, has given several interviews about his desire to quit Anfield this summer but, as yet, he has not informed Liverpool's senior figures.

Liverpool striker Andy Carroll will undergo a medical on Tuesday at West Ham United, as the £35 million striker is looking to fly back from his holiday trip in the United States to complete the formalities at Upton Park.
Luis Suarez has given his most blatant hint yet that he wants to move to the Spanish league. Urging Liverpool to listen to his needs, he went on to talk of how every boy dreams of playing for either Real Madrid or Barcelona. "First I have a contract with the club, but if one day I want to sign (for another club), Liverpool will hear the offer, as it does with other players," he said in the Mail.
Liverpool's new signing Iago Aspas insists he wants to play alongside Luis Suarez. With the future of the Uruguayan unclear after he declared he wanted to leave Anfield, the £7m spent on 25-year-old striker Aspas was seen as good business should Suarez decide to leave. But Aspas has stressed that he is coming to Liverpool to strengthen the side, not as a replacement.
Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva admits it would be a "great loss" if Luis Suarez left Anfield this summer. The Uruguay international has publicly expressed his desire to quit the Premier League after suggesting negative press coverage surrounding his controversies has had an impact on his private life.
This year's Confederations Cup in Brazil starts with one of the best matchups in the draw: Uruguay vs. Spain; the defending Copa America champions versus the World Cup and two-time defending European Cup champions. With star studded lineups on both ends of the pitch, this match is sure to be a fantastic spectacle of football and one that will hopefully get the world even more excited for next summer's World Cup.
Although the media's gaze is currently focused on Luis Suarez and where his future lies, another Liverpool forward is unsure where he will play his football next term also. Andy Carroll has completed a loan spell at West Ham, and showed that he still has what it takes to be a difficult opponent at Premier League level but where will he end up in 2013-14?
Liverpool boss Brendan Rogers is grilled from 9 year old Liverpool fan Finn for a series named Kop Kids with Rogers naming Luis Suarez as the naughtiest player let's hope he doesn't hear the interview or he may not set foot in Anfield ever again, but the question which stumped Rogers the most was what would he do if he buy if he was given £5 with Rogers ducking out of the question a saying he'd probably save it!
At any given point, Brendan Rodgers is only an impromptu acoustic guitar ballad away from completely turning into David Brent. Nowhere is this more obvious than the latest episode of Liverpool FC's whacky online series 'Kop Kids', in which the manager is interviewed by a nine-year-old fan.
To be fair, Brent-an is a very good sport in the interview, in which he admits the that Luis Suarez is his "naughtiest" player.
Liverpool hope to sign Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for £8million in the next week. The Merseyside club have bid £7m but the Wearsiders are holding out for nearer £10m, with the clubs likely to reach a compromise. Manager Brendan Rodgers has taken the initiative as speculation continues to link his current No 1 Pepe Reina with a switch to Barcelona, where Victor Valdes is refusing to sign a new deal.
Russian giants Zenit St. Petersburg are set to offer Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez a quick escape from his Liverpool hell. The mega-wealthy club, managed by Luciano Spalletti, secured a Champions League qualifying spot last season after they finished second in the Russian championship behind CSKA Moscow.
Iago Aspas is set to complete his move to Liverpool today after undergoing a medical. Celta Vigo forward Aspas, 25, has cancelled a Caribbean holiday to ensure the £7.2 million deal goes through this week and arrived on Merseyside last night. He told Spanish sports paper Marca: "When I heard of Liverpool's interest I did not hesitate even for a minute.
Luis Suarez is doing little to stop rumours about a possible move away from Liverpool, as he has said recently that he would one day like to play for Real Madrid. Luis Suarez is doing little to stop rumours about a possible move away from Liverpool, as he has said recently that he would one day like to play for Real Madrid.
At a press conference and again in a recent interview, the temperamental Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has expressed his desire to leave Liverpool Football Club to ply his trade in another country, due to him feeling unfairly singled out by the UK press. The Suarez question is the first major transfer test for Rodgers this summer and, if the Northern Irishman and the Liverpool board have any sense, they should do their best to cash in on Suarez as soon as possible.
Suarez to stay or go? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Luis Suarez has today reconfirmed that he is unsettled at Liverpool, and stoked the fires in the media that he could leave Anfield this summer. The Uruguayan has been at the centre of a number of controversies since moving to England from Ajax, and as such could well leave Merseyside for a new start elsewhere this summer.
With Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas looking more and more likely to make the £7.7 million switch from the northwest Spain to the northwest of England, Pepe Reina, for one, welcomes added attacking options.
Aspas led Celta Vigo in both goals and assists this year as the club narrowly avoided relegation.
Ex-Liverpool goalscorer Robbie Fowler is hoping Luis Suarez will be staying at Anfield for a long time, despite the Uruguayan's desire to leave. Suarez has been a contentious figure throughout his time in the Premier League, and even though Fowler has condemned some of his previous actions, he believes Liverpool must do everything they can to prevent him from leaving.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is willing to hear offers for defender Sebastian Coates, after concluding that his main task in the pre-season is to strengthen the team's defence at both first team and squad level. Events surrounding Luis Suarez mean he might also have to think about attack, but sources at the club say the priority is to improve on last season's Premier League finish and the obvious weakness was in defence.
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina insists he is hopeful Luis Suarez will remain at Anfield, but understands the Uruguayan's desire to leave the club. Real Madrid appear keen on the striker, although Liverpool will attempt to hold onto their top scorer unless a significant figure over the £50 million mark is offered.
Yesterday rumours circle that Liverpool were ready make an offer for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, however this is very unlikely according to reports. It was alleged that Brendan Rodgers felt that Tevez was the man to replace Luis Suarez if he was to leave the club this summer after saying that he was considering his future.
Liverpool is making contingency plans in case star striker Luis Suarez decides to leave this summer and Carlos Tevez is top of their wish list, according to reports. Suarez hinted last week that he was considering his future at Anfield following another controversial season at the Reds and being the clubs leading goalscorer they would want to replace him with a big name should he leave.
It is well known that Bayern Munich are interested in signing Liverpool forward Luis Suarez this summer and are set to offer Arjen Robben as part of the deal. The Sun say that the fact that new Bayern boss Pepe Guardiola and Suarez share the same agent could have a bearing on the move an he would be willing to let Arjen Robben move to Anfield to seal the deal.
Liverpool is hopeful that striker Daniel Sturridge will be fit for the start of the Premier League season. Sturridge suffered an ankle injury while on duty with England in their draw with the Republic of Ireland last Wednesday and it was feared that he could be out for up to four months. Initial assessments suggested the striker had suffered ligament damage, but Liverpool confirmed that after seeing a specialist it was confirmed that Sturridge had suffered a "high ankle sprain" The club is now confident that the former Chelsea man will be fit for the start of the new campaign.

This summer is vital for Liverpool for more than just the Luis Suarez dilemma. The past season was a 'season-of-introspection' for the fans. A new manager came in and was given ample time to implant his ideas and philosophy at the expense of immediate results.
International friendlies tend to usually go two extreme opposite directions a highlight reel full of goals or one that almost lulls everyone to sleep. Uruguay and France's international friendly was the latter as the highlights were certainly few and far between. The lone goal of the match came in the 50th minute as Luis Suarez broke the deadlock only five minutes after coming on for Diego Forlan.

Luis Suarez has pointed the finger at Manchester fans for making his life with Liverpool a living hell.

Describing a recent incident in an interview with RR-Gol, he said: ‘About a week ago I was walking in a shopping centre near Manchester and three or four guys asked me for a photo.
He has gone on record as saying he's public enemy number one in the English press, but if Liverpool have any ambition over the next few season's they've got to get Luis Suarez to stay at the club and the reason why? Well just have a look at this wonderful goal scored last night with a deft touch of the outside of his right boot, incidently it proved to be the winner as Uruguay beat France in Montevideo.
