The summer transfer window is just over a month away from swinging open, giving teams from the Premier League and beyond a valuable opportunity to strengthen their squads and offload some of their dead wood.

It remains to be seen whether Erik ten Hag will even be at Manchester United to oversee their recruitment as he stumbles towards the end of a disappointing second season. The chances of Mauricio Pochettino remaining at Chelsea, meanwhile, have been enhanced by a promising spell of recent form.

Napoli hit man Victor Osimhen, on-loan Getafe forward Mason Greenwood and Sporting goal machine Viktor Gyokeres are just three of the players expected to be hot topics this summer – we’ll keep you up to date every step of the way.

Cole Palmer near-miss comes to light

Chelsea almost missed out on signing Cole Palmer last summer as Algemeen Dagblad claim that PSV Eindhoven nearly beat them to the punch.

Palmer has been a smash hit at Stamford Bridge this season after leaving City in a £40million deal.

But the attacking midfielder almost took his talent to the Netherlands, with the report claiming that PSV and City had ‘reached an agreement’ on a season-long loan move before Chelsea stepped in with a decisive offer of their own.

Dani Olmo price tag emerges

Dani Olmo will be attainable for the value of his £51.6million release clause this summer, but only under certain conditions.

Manchester United and Tottenham may have to move quickly for the RB Leipzig playmaker as Mundo Deportivo claim that his clause can only be activated before July 15, which coincides with the end of the Euros.

Olmo, 26, has notched nine goal contributions in 21 Bundesliga games this campaign.

Jadon Sancho hint dropped

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has hinted that Jadon Sancho could stay with the German club beyond this summer.

Manchester United loanee Sancho has rediscovered his confidence with BVB, helping them reach the Champions League final after falling out with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford.

Before Dortmund’s win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, Kehl said of Sancho and fellow loan star Ian Maatsen in an interview with TNT Sports: “We will see.

“Of course they are under contract with their clubs, that means we will at a specific moment get in touch and then we will see if it’s possible or not. I know that the players feel pretty welcome in Dortmund, they feel at home, especially Jadon.

“I think it was a quite good decision to take them. But again, this is something for the future.”

Newcastle agree deal

Newcastle United have reached an agreement to sign Lloyd Kelly as a free agent this summer, according to Foot Mercato.

Various clubs have been keeping tabs on the 25-year-old as he comes to the end of his Bournemouth contract.

Magpies boss Eddie Howe knows Kelly from his time with the Cherries and looks set to beat competition from Tottenham for the centre-back who, if the reports are accurate, would arrive at St James’ Park without costing Newcastle a penny.

Tottenham offered £52m star

Tottenham are among a group of Premier League clubs to have been offered the chance to sign Barcelona starlet Vitor Roque on loan this summer, according to TBR.

Roque, 19, has only started two La Liga games for the Catalan giants since arriving from Athletico Paranaense in January.

The £52million forward could be allowed to gain experience elsewhere next season, and intermediaries have reportedly sounded out Spurs, Manchester United and Chelsea for potential opportunities.

Roque boasts one senior cap for Brazil and two seasons of regular first-team football in his homeland, where he managed 21 goals in all competitions last term.
