    Sébastien Squilllaci Arsenal, defender

    Age 30

    The hapless Frenchman arrived at Arsenal from Sevilla last summer, but has failed to impress in defence. He made several costly mistakes as Arsenal finished fourth and has been unable to hold down a regular place in the side

    Nicklas Bendtner Arsenal, striker

    Age 23

    If there’s one man who rates Nicklas Bendtner, it’s Nicklas Bendtner. Unfortunately, his manager, Arsène Wenger, is less impressed and Bendtner has spoken of his willingness to leave Arsenal. He has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich



    Wayne Bridge Manchester City, left-back

    Age 30

    Bridge signed a four-and-a-half year contract when he joined Manchester City for £10m in 2009: he’s unlikely to see out that term. City showed they were willing to do without him in the 2010-11 season when they loaned him out to West Ham. Unlikely to make a return to his former club Chelsea

    Shaun Wright-Phillips Manchester City, right winger

    Age 29

    The pint-sized winger has found opportunities limited under Roberto Mancini, but so far offers for a move elsewhere have not been forthcoming

    Jermaine Jenas Tottenham, midfielder

    Age 28

    The former Newcastle midfielder has plenty of natural talent, but has often frustrated the White Hart Lane crowd by disappearing during matches. Luka Modric, Tom Huddlestone, Wilson Palacios and Sandro were preferred last season and with Scott Parker possibly arriving, Jenas may have to leave Spurs



    Paul Konchesky Liverpool, left-back

    Age 30

    Many Fulham fans rubbed their hands with glee when Liverpool gave them £4m for the left-back last summer. Found out to be slow on the turn, prone to a long ball when a short pass would do and with a mouthy mum to boot, Konchesky was loaned out to Nottingham Forest when Kenny Dalglish took over. At 30 years old, Liverpool will do well to find a suitor

    David Bentley Tottenham, right winger

    Age 26

    This isn’t the first-time Bentley finds himself out of the picture at a club. Despite his natural talent, he left his original club Arsenal before finding his way – via Blackburn and a loan spell at Norwich – to their fierce rivals Tottenham. Spurs then loaned him out to Birmingham City, where he failed to impress



    Gabriel Obertan Manchester United, left winger

    Age 22

    After a fairly promising first season at Old Trafford, Obertan's second year at United was something of a disappointment. He was largely restricted to appearances in the Carling Cup and hasn't played a minute since the victory over Crawley Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February

    El-Hadji Diouf Blackburn Rovers, striker/winger

    Age 30

    Can alienate fans at will, including those of his own team. Spent much of last season on loan at Rangers, where he won a title-winners medal. Has spoken of his desire to work with Sam Allardyce at West Ham



    Greg Halford Wolves, defender

    Age 26

    Halford was snapped up by Wolves when they were promoted in 2009. However he has struggled at Premier League level and was loaned out to Portsmouth last season. He may well get a permanent move there in the near future

    Massimo Maccarone Sampdoria, striker

    Age 31

    The former Middlesbrough striker found himself in an unenviable position following his move to Sampdoria in January – tasked with replacing both Antonio Cassano and Giampaolo Pazzini. Nevertheless, a total of just three goals in 17 games – supplemented with a woeful missed penalty in a crucial home game against Parma – spoke to how just how far the one-time Wunderkind's stock has now fallen.



    Milan Jovanovic Liverpool, winger

    Age 30

    If the left-winger-cum-striker’s £120,000-per-week wages don’t detract those who come sniffing, his heavy first touch and poor positioning almost certainly will

    Robbie Keane Tottenham, striker

    Age 30

    The Tottenham striker has been out of favour at White Hart Lane since returning from Liverpool in 2008 and is behind Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko in the pecking order. He spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham, but was unable to prevent their relegation



    Hans-Jörg Butt Bayern Munich, goalkeeper

    Age 37

    Most famous for being a keeper who takes penalties, Butt's days at Bayern look numbered after the arrival of Manuel Neuer. At 37, Butt may be happy to act as a back-up before retiring

    Jonny Evans Manchester United, defender

    Age 23

    Has gone from first-choice deputy to Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand to third – after Chris Smalling’s impressive debut season and the expected arrival of Phil Jones. Sir Alex Ferguson berated him at half-time last year during Manchester United’s Champions League tie against Milan, yelling at him to “fucking wake up”, and his critics note that he remains prone to lapses of concentration and lackadaisical distribution. Still, Ferdinand could lack focus at Evans’s age, but Ferguson would not be stockpiling central defensive options if he was wholly convinced that Evans could eradicate the flaws in his game



    Paulo Ferreira Chelsea, defender

    Age 32

    Chelsea are paying the price for giving the Portuguese a new five-year contract in the summer of 2008 when he had already been overtaken as first-choice right-back. Since then he’s dropped down to third in the list behind Branislav Ivanovic and José Bosingwa, one a far better defender than Ferreira, the other an infinitely better attacker. Started 12 Premier League games last season, and opponents have exploited his lack of pace. Huge salary means Chelsea will have to give him a golden handshake to leave

    John Carew Aston Villa, striker

    Age 31

    'Oh John Carew, Carew. He’s bigger than me and you. He’s gonna score one or two, John Carew, Carew.' Villa fans were pretty taken by the Norway centre-forward and his first three seasons at the club saw him strike up a productive partnership with Gabriel Agbonlahor. He is adept at linking the play and can terrorise defenders with his heading ability but he scored only once in 20 games for Villa and Stoke last season and fell out of favour with Gérard Houllier, who swapped him for Milan Baros in 2007, when he was the Lyon manager. Out of contract and needs to stop relying on his size to find a way back from turning himself into Carsten Jancker



    Alan Smith Newcastle United, midfielder

    Age 30

    West Ham want him and the Leeds chairman, Ken Bates said if the club’s former forward, who alienated most of his home-town club’s supporters when joining Manchester United after categorically saying he would never move to Old Trafford, was fit and willing to take a huge pay cut then a return to Elland Road was possible. Could probably do a job as a Dickson Etuhu-lite for a Championship club

    Albert Streit Schalke, midfielder

    Age 31

    Romania-born defensive midfielder who has fallen so far out of favour in Gelsenkirchen that he has been sent out on loan to Hamburg and then demoted to Schalke B in the regional leagues since signing a four-year contract in 2008. He has been dropped in his career twice – at Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke, where he was spat at by fans – for a poor attitude in training. He says the former Schalke manager Felix Magath 'ruined my career' and the memories of his firm tackling, decent control and tempo-setting have long been banished to be replaced by the view that a manager would be crazy to take on a 31-year-old who has exasperated his coaches and has barely played first-team football for three years



    Marko Arnautovic Werder Bremen, striker

    Age 22

    While on loan from Twente to Internazionale, José Mourinho said the striker 'has the attitude of a child'. Little wonder Inter pulled out of the proposed deal to give him a long-term contract and instead the Dutch side sold him to Werder. The German club are keen to get shot of 'the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic', a tall centre-forward with wonderful touch, because of numerous strops over the course of the season in which he only scored three goals.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in Italy to rally opposition to Palestinian plans to have the U.N. recognize a Palestinian state in September.

    Italy is one of Israel's closest friends in Europe, and last month Berlusconi said Italy would only recognize a Palestinian unity government that renounces terrorism and recognizes Israel's right to exist
