The FA Cup goes down on Saturday afternoon at Wembley Stadium, but for most Premier League clubs, the season is over, and all eyes are now on the transfer window. Speculation is already flowing ahead of June 14, when the summer business will commence.

Manchester United are expected to prioritise a new centre-back but also plan to move for a central midfielder and striker.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta hopes to add a reliable goalscorer to his Arsenal squad as they gear up to challenge for the Premier League title for a third consecutive season.

Liverpool will already be planning the summer with new manager Arne Slot, and an exit has already been all but confirmed.

Chelsea’s current priority will be appointing Mauricio Pochettino’s successor after parting ways on Tuesday.

But recruitment is just as important at Stamford Bridge and the Blues will likely be active again once their new head coach is in place.

West Ham block Jarrod Bowen exit

West Ham United will refuse to sell Jarrod Bowen to Newcastle United this summer, according to CaughtOffside.

Newcastle have identified Bowen as an attacking target ahead of the transfer window.

But it’s claimed that West Ham will demand a nine-figure sum for their star winger.

Newcastle view Michael Olise and Pedro Neto as potential alternatives.

Tottenham consider Callum Hudson-Odoi

Tottenham Hotspur are considering a summer swoop for Nottingham Forest winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, according to The Guardian.

Ange Postecoglou wants to strengthen his attack and was offered Hudson-Odoi last year before opting for Brennan Johnson in a £47m deal.

The 23-year-old replaced Johnson at Forest – joining from Chelsea for just £3m – and has enjoyed a good season.

Ally McCoist fears for Erik ten Hag

Ally McCoist admits he fears for Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United once the FA Cup final is out of the way.

“I’ll be honest, and it’s just a gut feeling. I think, eventually, INEOS will bring in their own man. And it may be a little bit unfair on Ten Hag, that,” McCoist told Express Sport on behalf of talkSPORT BET.

“In any organisation, the men at the top want to bring their own man in nine times out of ten or even greater than that, and I think that might be the case with Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

“I have a large degree of sympathy for Ten Hag. However, we all know the book stops at the manager or coach’s door. And the league performances haven’t been excellent, anything but, to be honest with you.

“You look at what happened at Chelsea yesterday [Pochettino’s exit], it’s remarkable. It’s absolutely remarkable what’s going on in the game. And with those things combined, I would fear for Ten Hag’s job.”

Nat Phillips set for Liverpool exit

Departing Liverpool goalkeeper coach John Achterberg has seemingly confirmed that Nat Phillips will leave this summer.

Phillips paid tribute to Jurgen Klopp with an Instagram message on Wednesday night, to which Achterberg responded.

“You’re a good defender Nat! Good luck in your next move,” the Al Ettifaq-bound coach wrote.

Phillips hasn’t played for Liverpool since January 2023 and looks set to join Achterberg and Klopp through the Anfield exit door.

Arsenal suffer Alexander Isak blow

Newcastle have laughed at suggestions that they could part ways with Alexander Isak for £90m this summer, according to The Telegraph.

Isak is an Arsenal target after enjoying a sensational second season at St James’ Park.

However, the Gunners have no hope of prizing him away from Newcastle unless he forces an exit.

The Magpies reportedly value him at around £180m and plan to open talks over a new, improved contract.

Eddie Howe wants to build his attack around Isak, who has four years remaining on his current deal.

Harry Kane backed for Man Utd move

Harry Kane has been strongly backed to leave Bayern Munich in the 2025 summer transfer window by bookmakers.

And Manchester United are the favourites for his signature – at just 2/1 to be his next club.

Kane has continued scoring goals for fun at Bayern but the team went without silverware in a disastrous campaign.

The 30-year-old was open to joining United last summer before the club walked away from talks over Tottenham Hotspur’s demands.

If things don’t go well under Vincent Kompany next season, Kane could be eyeing a Premier League return.
