A 7-1 mauling at the hands of Die Mannschaft was the stuff of nightmares for Brazil and their supporters and could prompt some Selecao players looking to avoid a World Cup hangover to push for a dream Premier League move.

Maybe it’s wishful thinking to suggest the likes of Fred could ever earn a move to English shores after a series of snail-like performances for Brazil, but after seeing the tears being shed by the boys in yellow, we of News.Ladbrokes would welcome any of the following lads over here anytime.

Bernard

Arsenal and Tottenham were previously interested in signing the 21-year-old before he opted for Shakhtar Donetsk but with Bernard keen on a return to Brazil after a tough spell in Ukraine, he may reconsider a London move – just don’t expect either club to cough up the previous £20m price tag.

Hulk

A disallowed winner against Chile aside, Hulk hasn’t been that incredible for Brazil at this World Cup and far from the player once linked with a £10m loan move to Tottenham. With another World Cup coming up in Russia, a move from Zenit St Petersburg to the Lilywhites could be a good fit.

Luis Gustavo

The former Bayern Munich midfielder had a torrid time against his old teammates and could be set for yet more punishment in the season to come as he lines up for Wolfsburg against the Bavarians in the Bundesliga. Once linked with Arsenal, now may be the time to get Mr Wenger on the phone.

Fred

On the books at Fluminense, Fred was the main target for abuse from Selecao fans in the aftermath of their 7-1 loss. Having previously had offers from several Premier League teams, Sam Allardyce could bring him to England, having already signed Velez Sarsfield washout Mauro Zarate.

Dante

Fresh from putting in the most ghost-like performance seen since Patrick Swayze took to the clay wheel, Dante must be dreading a Munich reunion with teammates Manuel Neuer, Phillip Lahm, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller. Suddenly that offer from Manchester United doesn’t look so bad.
