THE Premier League could see some blockbuster transfer departures take place in 2021 with plenty of speculation surrounding several of the biggest players in the division.
Here, SunSport take a closer look at SIX top-flight superstars including Paul Pogba, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kevin De Bruyne and their odds of leaving England in 2021, according to bookmakers Betfair.
BETFAIR NEW CUSTOMER OFFER: BET £5 GET £20*
Paul Pogba – 1/2
Will he, won't he? Well he certainly WILL if Mino Raiola has anything to do with it.
The super agent said earlier this month that the player is "unhappy" at Old Trafford and "has to change teams" in the next transfer window.
A return to Juventus is the most likely scenario with bookies Betfair while Paris Saint-Germain or Real Madrid are other possible destinations.
He's odds-on 1/2 to move abroad in 2021.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 5/4
Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed a new three-year contract in September.
But Betfair have priced him at 5/4 to leave England at 5/4.
The 31-year-old has struggled for goals under Mikel Arteta this season, registering just three in 14 top-flight appearances.
The Spanish tactician recently admitted that nobody is 'undroppable' in his squad but would anyone potential suitors take on his £350,000+ wages?

Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "2021 looks set to be a huge improvement on the year we have just had and on the pitch we are witnessing the most open title race for some time. However, there are still some players with questions over their future.
"We make Paul Pogba odds-on at 1/2 to leave the Premier League in 2021, while Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is 5/4 to move on.
"With contract talks apparently ongoing, Kevin De Bruyne is also on the list of players that could potentially move on from the Premier League in 2021, although it's not as likely as the previous two mentioned, he is 3/1 to leave the league in the coming year."
Kevin De Bruyne – 3/1
The Belgian mastermind is absolutely essential to Manchester City.
De Bruyne has scored 59 goals and provided 100 assists in 239 appearances for the Manchester club since arriving from Wolfsburg in 2015.
But where there's talk of a new and improved contract – there's inevitably transfer rumours.
A report in Spain claimed that Real Madrid were considering a move for the 29-year-old, who is priced a 3/1 to leave the Etihad Stadium with Betfair.
Sadio Mane – 5/1
An integral part of Jurgen Klopp's formidable front three and contracted at Anfield until June 2023.
Betfair think Sadio Mane is a 5/1 shot to leave the Premier League in 2021.
The 28-year-old has bagged 88 goals and provided 39 assists in 192 appearances for the club and become one of the most sought-after players in world football.
The arrival of Ronaldo Koeman at the Nou Camp sparked claims that Barcelona would make an approach earlier this year.
Mohamed Salah – 6/1
Talk of Mohamed Salah leaving Liverpool for either Real Madrid or Barcelona has intensified over the last month.
The Egyptian superstar's former international team-mate Mohamed Aboutrika claimed the attacker was 'unhappy' on Merseyside.
He also said that Salah was left "very disappointed" after being snubbed for the captaincy against Midtjylland earlier this month.
He's 6/1 to secure a move away from the English top-flight.
Harry Kane – 10/1
The outsider of Betfair's six-man list is Tottenham talisman Harry Kane.
The England star revealed earlier this year that he would consider leaving north London if the club fail to match his ambitions.
There's also been reports that Manchester City were planning a £90m bid as Pep Guardiola seeks a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero.
However, with City the current favourites to secure his signature – Kane is 10/1 to move abroad.
