The countdown until the transfer window opens is in full swing, with clubs across the continent prepping their summer plans.

Manchester United are expected to be one of the busiest teams in the Premier League, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe overseeing his first window since arriving at Old Trafford.

But with the manager situation still uncertain, the Red Devils could face stern competition for their primary targets.

Liverpool are another side tipped to be busy this summer, with incomings and outgoings likely in Merseyside.

It wouldn’t be a transfer window without Todd Boehly’s Chelsea making the headlines either.

PSR concerns mean the Blues could be forced into sales of key players this summer.

Whereas Arsenal could spend big one again, as Mikel Arteta looks to bridge the gap to Premier League champions Manchester City.

Express Sport recaps all the latest transfer news and views from across the Premier League and beyond.

Ange Postecoglou hoping to pull off transfer raid

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly eyeing up a transfer hijack, which would see them snatch Conor Gallagher away from Aston Villa.

It’s claimed Aston Villa have entered talks with Chelsea over the possibility of signing Gallagher this summer.

But according to Sky Sports, Spurs are expected to reignite their interest in the midfielder.

United reluctant to splash £51m on defender

Manchester United are reportedly hesitant about stumping up the full £51million for Goncalo Inacio’s release clause.

That’s according to reports in Portugal which claim Inacio is genuine a target for the Red Devils, but only if United can snatch him for a reduced price.
