The Race for Axel Witsel: Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Middlesbrough or Bolton?

Axel Witsel has been linked with several Premier League sides in recent weeks, with Arsenal, Manchester United, Middlesbrough, Bolton and even Manchester City in the mix, even though the player is predominantly an attacking midfielder (right-sided but can play center and left, like Nani) and most teams linked to the Standard Liege midfielder are looking for a strong ball-winner in central midfield.

Who do you think is best placed to sign Axel Witsel and how much will he go for (he’s been valued at 6.5m Euros but Standard expect to make at least 10m from the sale)?
