Football: 10 players in the Euro 2016 shop window

Paris is one of the shopping capitals of the world. But the other eight French cities hosting Euro 2016 matches will also provide shop windows for players seeking a big-money move.

With billions - including managers and scouts - expected to watch the continental showpiece, the stage is set for the players to showcase their talents.

The Straits Times looks at 10 players who could change clubs this summer. Will they be worth more Euros after the Euros? We will monitor their fortunes at the end of the tournament.

1. John Stones (England and Everton)

Just 22, he has already been touted as a future England captain and tipped to become one of Europe's best central defenders. His first major international will provide a litmus test.

While his possession-based style has attracted the interest of Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea, he has made mistakes trying to play out from the back for both club and country.

With England manager Roy Hodgson including just three centre backs in his squad, Stones could get some decent playing time in France.

Current valuation by the transfermarkt website: €28 million (S$42.99 million)

2. Alvaro Morata (Spain and Juventus)

The 23-year-old is set to return to Real Madrid, if only for the Spanish giants to make a quick profit.

The 11-time European champions want to exercise a €30 million buy-back clause before selling him on. Italy boss Antonio Conte, who will manage Chelsea after Euro 2016, is reportedly keen to reunite with the player he coached at Juventus.

Morata scored 27 goals in two seasons in Italy.

Current valuation: €30 million

3. N'Golo Kante (France and Leicester City)

The 25-year-old has a £20 million (S$39.25 million) release clause in his contract and confirmed that he will decide on his future after the Euros.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are among his suitors.

The midfield workhorse featured in 37 games during Leicester's Premier League title-winning campaign.

Current valuation: €20 million

4. Andre Gomes (Portugal and Valencia)

Manchester United and Italian champions Juventus are reportedly leading the chase for Gomes.

The playmaker scored three goals and created three assists for Valencia last term.

While that represents a modest output, the 22-year-old is expected to have a bright future. His close-control dribbling and ability to play anywhere in midfield are reasons why he is sought after.

Current valuation: €18 million

5. Leonardo Bonucci (Italy and Juventus)

Conte has worked with Bonucci for the last five seasons and reportedly wants the 29-year-old at Stamford Bridge when he rebuilds Chelsea's defence.

The ball-playing central defender is Juventus' leading passer, frequently starting attacks from the back. He does his primary job well too, helping Juve set a Serie A record of 10 straight clean sheets last season.

Current valuation: €30 million

6. Ciprian Tatarusanu (Romania and Fiorentina)

Romania had the best defensive record in Euro qualifying, conceding just twice in 10 matches.

Tatarusanu was in goal for nine of those games. The 30-year-old also shutout Fiorentina's opponents 14 times in the Serie A last season.

But with the Italian club set to make a move for Paris Saint-Germain's wantaway goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu, Tatarusanu could be playing for his future in France.

Current valuation: €5 million

7. Leroy Sane (Germany and Schalke)

With intense competition for places in the Germany starting XI, getting more game time in France could be a challenge for the 20-year-old.

He only has three caps for his country, but has been a key man for Schalke. He scored eight goals and provided six assists in the Bundesliga last season, prompting speculation that he could become the most expensive German player ever this summer.

Manchester City are reportedly keen on the midfielder, as are Liverpool and Barcelona.

Current valuation: €18 million

8. Robert Lewandowski (Poland and Bayern Munich)

Bayern Munich have ruled out selling Lewandowski , who has three years left on his contract. But that has not stopped the 27-year-old from being strongly linked with Real Madrid.

One of the deadliest and most complete strikers in the world, Lewandowski's stock will only rise with a strong showing in France.

He became the first non-German to score 30 Bundesliga goals in a single season last term, firing Bayern to a league and Cup double.

Real love new Galacticos, and Lewandowski could be one of their most expensive stars ever.

Current valuation: €75 million

9. Kyle Lafferty (Northern Ireland and Norwich City)

The striker, who ended last season on loan at Championship side Birmingham City, has struggled to chalk up domestic minutes.

He played just 337 minutes of league football last term. But his seven goals in Euro 2016 qualifiers - two more than Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo - has garnered him some attention.

He knows this tournament could earn him a big break. The 28-year-old told the Belfast Telegraph: "I know if I can go out and perform the way I can I'm hoping that teams will take a chance on me."

Current valuation: €2 million

10. Romelu Lukaku (Belgium and Everton)

The 23-year-old has strongly hinted that he wants out of Goodison Park as he believes he belongs in the Champions League.

Juventus and Bayern Munich have been linked with Lukaku, the fourth-highest Premier League scorer last season with 18 goals.

Everton are reportedly willing to sell the striker, contracted to the club until 2019, for £65 million.

Current valuation: €35 million
