The European Championships may well still be in full flow, but that is not stoping teams in the Premier League and around the wider European circuit from delving into the transfer window and preparing to splash the cash.

We’ve seen a slow start to the window thus far, with plenty of teams on English shores battling with the restrictions of Financial Fair Play regulations and having to adhere to the recent profit and sustainability deadline.

Yet most if not all clubs have now got their shops in order, and the time to begin pulling the trigger on big deals is now.

As always during a major tournament, we have seen an apprehensiveness from teams, who are reluctant to do early deals with the fear of premiums being added to price tags as a result of Euro 2024.

Yet it appears to be Manchester United and Arsenal who will jump into action first, with the age-old top flight rivals now on a collision course over the signature of one the top performers at the Euros.

Over on Merseyside, Liverpool appear to be in the final throes of organising a £20m sale, which will provide new boss Arne Slot with immediate additional transfer funds.

United and Arsenal set for Ferdi Kadioglu fight

United are muscling in on Arsenal territory, with reports emerging that Ferdi Kadioglu is now very much in the sights of the Red Devils.

The flying full-back has been in inspired form for Turkey, who only recently crashed out of the Euros at the quarter-final stage.

United are understood to be set to meet on the player’s side in the coming days to discuss the possibility of a transfer.

Fenerbache are likely to demand north of £30m for the youngster, who has also agreed terms with Arsenal over a proposed switch to the Premier League.
