Premier League clubs are working around the clock to finalise their plans before the summer transfer window opens. Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are all expected to splash the cash ahead of next season, and they could announce their first arrivals over the coming weeks, with all three clubs in the market for a new winger as well as a centre-back.

After another season that saw Manchester City lift the Premier League title, Arsenal and Liverpool are hoping that an injection of fresh faces into their respective dressing rooms will help them bridge the gap on Pep Guardiola’s side ahead of the 2024/25 campaign.

Similarly, United and Chelsea are also of the belief, regardless of their managerial situations, that reshaping their ranks will take them one step closer to reasserting themselves as title contenders.

Chelsea closing in on Newcastle hijack

Chelsea are close to hijacking Newcastle’s deal for Tosin Adarabioyo, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The Magpies have been negotiating with the defender, who opted to become a free agent after running down his contract with Fulham, for weeks and were confident that they would secure his signature soon.

But Chelsea have now swooped to assert themselves as ‘clear favourites’ to sign the 26-year-old, with Enzo Maresca is keen to make the centre-back the first signing of his tenure.

Tottenham invite Richarlison offers despite public plea

Tottenham have reportedly put Richarlison, along with 10 other stars, up for sale this summer.

According to the Evening Standard, Spurs will ‘consider’ offers for the Brazil international, despite the forward publicly attempting to squad speculation about his future.

The 27-year-old is attracting interest from several Saudi Pro League side’s and offers in the region of £60million would test Tottenham’s resolve.

Emerson Royal, Bryan Gil and Djed Spence are among a host of stars also set to leave Spurs this summer.

Arsenal handed striker food for thought

Arsenal have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Napoli star Victor Osimhen.

The Nigeria international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, with Chelsea previously viewed as the leading contenders to secure his signature.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports that the Blues are not looking to sign the ex-Lille star this summer as they are targeting alternative striker options.

The transfer decision will provide Arsenal with plenty of food for thought as they had previously shortlisted Osimhen as one of their key considerations this summer.

Ipswich set to hand Chelsea £20m boost

Ipswich are plotting a £20million move for Chelsea’s Omari Hutchinson this summer, reports Football London.

The winger shone on loan with Kieran McKenna’s side last season, scoring 11 goals and helping the club to promotion to the Premier League.

Hutchinson made a significant impression at Portman Road Stadium and Ipswich are now willing to spend big to retain his services, in what will be music to the ears of Chelsea given that they must raise funds before their respective spending spree gets underway.

Liverpool plot move for Salah successor

Liverpool are reportedly plotting a move for Brentford playmaker Bryan Mbeumo.

According to L’Equipe, the Reds are set to battle it out with Newcastle to secure the signature of the 24-year-old this summer.

Mbeumo is said to be keen to make the move to a top club this summer and has publicly encouraged teams to come forward and open talks with the Bees.

Man Utd put talks ‘on hold’

After a sensational debut season, Manchester United are keen to tie Kobbie Mainoo down to a new contract.

However, the Daily Star report that the midfielder has put negotiations ‘on hold’ whilst he focuses on the Euros this summer, with talks expected to resume in July.

The midfielder is set to see his current salary quadrupled, with the higher powers at his boyhood club hoping to agree on a long-term contract to highlight how highly-regarded he is internally and why he is viewed as a key figure in INEOS’ project.
