As the first full week of the summer transfer window rises over the horizon, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are among the clubs reportedly attempting to seal deals early. While European clubs have to wait until July 1 to recruit players, Premier League outfits have been free to spend since Friday.

Euro 2024 has provided entertainment across the past two days, and there will be more where that came from today as England kick start their Group C campaign against Serbia.

But in the background of Gareth Southgate’s fourth major tournament as England boss, work is ongoing on the transfer front.

United have already been linked with numerous incoming and outgoing transfers, with Jose Mourinho reportedly looking to take more than one player off Erik ten Hag’s hands.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Chelsea could be set to battle for one of Europe’s hottest goalscorers last season as Mikel Arteta and Enzo Maresca search for firepower.

Liverpool will also be working on Arne Slot’s first signing since replacing Jurgen Klopp, with Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur will undoubtedly be searching for upgrades too.

COMMENT: Arsenal can offer Everton four stars

Arsenal can offer Everton four players as part of a swap deal for Amadou Onana this summer.

The Gunners have reportedly inquired about Onana, with Everton set to demand around £50m.

And there are four stars who Mikel Arteta may be willing to use to sweeten the deal…


Xavi Simons subjected to heavyweight chase

Paris Saint-Germain have been contacted by Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Manchester United over the signing of Xavi Simons, according to L’Equipe.

However, the Ligue 1 giants don’t plan to sell the 21-year-old forward this summer and intend to loan him out for a second successive season.

Simons spent last term on loan at RB Leipzig after PSG triggered a £5m buy-back clause in his PSV Eindhoven contract.

The Dutchman registered 10 goals and 15 assists in 43 appearances for Leipzig, attracting heavyweight interest.

Newcastle weighing up Federico Chiesa swoop

Newcastle United have reportedly identified Juventus winger Federico Chiesa as a cheaper alternative to Michael Olise this summer.

According to GiveMeSport, Olise has been deemed an audacious transfer target and would set his buyers back £60m.

But Chiesa is expected to cost half that fee, and Newcastle could make their move in the latter stages of the window.

Pep Lijnders eyeing Liverpool star

RB Salzburg manager Pep Ljinders is reportedly looking to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Vitezslav Jaros this summer.

Ljinders left Anfield with Jurgen Klopp and accepted an exciting new role in Austria.

According to Salzburger Nachrichten, he wants to make Jaros one of his first signings after an impressive loan at Sturm Graz last season.

Arsenal and Chelsea battle for Serhou Guirassy

Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly in a four-club race with AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund for Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy this summer.

BILD claim that Guirassy could be available for as low as £15m despite scoring 30 goals in as many games last season.

The 28-year-old is expected to leave Stuttgart, and the Premier League could be his destination.

Jose Mourinho wants Victor Lindelof reunion

Fenerbahce reportedly expect to finalise a deal for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof at the request of new manager Jose Mourinho.

Lindelof has spent seven years at United since Mourinho brought him to the club in a £31m deal but looks set to slip down Erik ten Hag’s pecking order this summer.

According to Fotomac, the 29-year-old is keen to reunite with Mourinho in Turkey and could leave Old Trafford for around £7m.
