premier league

liverpool

budget: £40m — jurgen klopp has made it clear that transfer business ll'be kept to a bare minimum at anfield this summer, w'da liverpool manager citing the failure to beat chelsea to the £47.7m signing of rb leipzig striker timo werner as an ex of the financial restraints caused by the impact of covid-19.

wha’ does the team need? having won the premier league with ease this season, thris clearly lil wrong w'da liverpool machine. in every position, klopp’s side are a match for any opponent inna realm. but thris an argument that liverpool lack depth in key zones, with no obvious cover for left-back andy robertson or centre-back virgil van dijk.

in midfield, both jordan henderson and james milner are in their 30s and up front, liverpool’s limited options beyond mohamed salah, roberto firmino and sadio mane prompted the interest in werner prior to his move to chelsea.

who are the major targets? liverpool srcs ‘ve told espn that thris no interest in bayern munich midfielder thiago alcantara, despite ongoin speculation linking the elder barcelona player witha move to anfield. age, wages, transfer fee and his injury record ‘ve all been cited as reasons why the 29-yr-old thiago does not fit liverpool’s profile.

the consistent message from those within anfield s'dat no major deals will happen unless a significant player cutouts the club. thris no expectation offa big star leaving, so tis likely to be a quiet window for the victors.

who ‘d be leaving? dejan lovren s'been told he can cutout the club this summer, w'da centre-back almost completing a move to roma 12 mnths ago. he s'been linked with Яussian victors zenit.

midfielder adam lallana and full-back nathaniel clyne will cutout anfield after their contracts ‘ve expired na club will also listen to offers for goalkeeper loris karius, who is set to return to liverpool folloing the end offa loan spell with besiktas.

milner has two yrs to run on his contract, but'a 34-yr-old ‘d move on for the promise of regular ftball elsewhere, while liverpool will listen to offers for xherdan shaqiri.

any new contracts coming? georginio wijnaldum tis 1-ly player likely to be handed a new deal, w'da dutch midfielder’s contract due to expire in jun 2021. aside from wijnaldum, all of liverpool’s top stars are secured to long-term contracts which expire from 2023 onwards. — mark ogden.

julien laurens thinks ferran torres ‘d be able to fill the void left by leroy sane at manchester city.

man city

budget: unlimited. they will ‘ve to spend within uefa’s financial fair play regulations, but after avoiding a victors league ban, they still ‘ve a bottomless pit of $$$.

wha’ does the team need? the priority is a centre-back after missing out on harry maguire last summer. vincent kompany has still not been replaced and that, combined w'da serious knee injury suffered by aymeric laporte, hurt city’s chances of retaining their title. pep guardiola will also look to sign another attacking player with david silva leaving after 10 yrs atta etihad stadium and leroy sane already sold to bayern munich for €49m.

who are the major targets? nathan ake is expected to cutout bournemouth iffey are relegated to the showdown. srcs ‘ve told espn that contact has already been made with bournemouth bout a proposed £35m deal but city are likely to face brawl from manchester ∪d. spanish winger ferran torres, 20, is another target and reprts in spain ‘ve suggested valencia are ready to sell for round €40m w'his contract running down.

who ‘d be leaving? silva is goin and sane has already gone. defenders nicolas otamendi and joao cancelo ‘d also cutout if the rite offers come in, but guardiola’s aim ll'be to strengthen his squad inna nxt transfer window rather than weaken it.

any new contracts coming? sergio aguero has a contract til 2021, but city are keen to extend it for at least another yr. aguero has repeatedly said he ‘d like to end his career backin argentina but, at 32, he is still a regular goal scorer inna premier league. — rob dawson.

it’s no secret that chelsea want the leverkusen star, but can they afford him?

chelsea

budget: £120m — chelsea are the ones making all the early moves as they ‘ve the resrcs to do so and their budget can be upped to over £200m if we include deals already done for hakim ziyech (£33.3m) and timo werner (£47.7m).

wha’ does the team need? frank lampard is convinced chelsea require another attacking option — namely bayer leverkusen midfielder kai ‘vertz — despite having already signed striker werner from rb leipzig and forward ziyech from ajax, but surely they nd'2 strengthen defensively to challenge for the title. a left-back and at least one centre-back ‘d provide gr8r solidity, while thris a big call to make on their no. 1 goalkeeper: persevere w'da erratic kepa arrizabalaga or cut their losses onna realm’s most expensive goalkeeper.

who are the major targets? srcs ‘ve told espn that the club are expected to make an offer for the £90m-rated ‘vertz. leicester city are also standing firm ‘oer their valuation of ben chilwell, with ajax’s nicolas tagliafico a cheaper alternative. chelsea made initial contact with west ham bout declan rice but are yet to make an offer and are also keeping tabs on possible goalkeeping options including manchester ∪d’s dean henderson and ajax’s andre onana. a loan deal for barcelona midfielder philippe coutinho looks unlikely but hasn’t been ruled out. however, interest in boЯussia dortmund winger jadon sancho has ended.

who ‘d be leaving? pedro will join roma once his contract expires this summer, while chelsea are willing to allo several squad players to dept including emerson palmieri, michy batshuayi, davide zappacosta, tiemoue bakayoko and victor moses. midfielder jorginho s'been repeatedly linked witha move back to italy and a deal is possible but lampard ‘d prefer to retain him.

any new contracts coming? willian‘s future remains inna balance. lampard wanna keep him; the brazilian winger wanna stay but 1-ly na' 3-yr contract and chelsea are yet t'offer + than two yrs. the urgency round striker tammy abraham‘s contract receded when the club triggered an additional yr extension meaning he now has 3 yrs left, but'a 22-yr-old is likely to seek recogg for his fine contribution this season and reassurance ‘oer the future folloing werner’s arrival. — james olley.

mark ogden believes sancho will move to man ∪d eventually, it’s just a matter of when.

man ∪d

budget: tween £100m and £150m.

wha’ does the team need? you can argue that there are still a № of zones of the squad that need strengthening but'a priority is a rite-sided forward and a centre-back, preferably left-fted. manager ole gunnar solskjaer has put together a strong starting xi but if ∪d are goin to challenge for major trophies, he needs + strength in depth.

who are the major targets? ∪d wanna sign jadon sancho from boЯussia dortmund and they are convinced the england winger wanna move to old trafford iffey can agree a fee. in a post-coronavirus transfer window, thall be the major sticking point. sancho still has two yrs on his contract and dortmund are under no pressure to sell.

∪d are reluctant to spend £100m na' player while they are yet to disc’oer the full effect of covid-19 onna club’s finances but sfar dortmund ‘ve not budged from their £120m valuation. solskjaer is also a fan of bournemouth defender nathan ake but ∪d will ‘ve to compete with manchester city. napoli‘s kalidou koulibaly, aston villa‘s tyrone mings and milan’s alessio romagnoli are among the names also bein’ monitored in defence.

who ‘d be leaving? ∪d are open to agreeing new loan deals for chris liling and alexis sanchez after the pair spent the season in italy with roma and inter milan, respectively. phil jones has barely played this season and will ‘ve to move if he wants regular 1st-team ftball. barcelona ‘ve shown an interest in diogo dalot na portuguese has fallen behind aaron wan-bissaka, luke shaw, brandon williams and timothy fosu-mensah inna pecking order for the two full-back positions. marcos rojo left on loan in jan and boca juniors are interested in signing the defender permanently.

any new contracts coming? ∪d’s priority is to tie down paul pogba, but'a club are relaxed bout the frenchman’s future. he has a yr left on his contract at old trafford and ∪d ‘ve the option to extend by another 12 mnths til 2022, which they will exercise at some point nxt season. ∪d are also open to offering goalkeeper dean henderson fresh terms to cogitate his development on loan at sheffield ∪d and to ward off interest from chelsea. — rob dawson.

rob dawson reveals manchester city’s interest in beating chelsea to leicester city’s ben chilwell.

leicester

budget: £20m — manager brendan rodgers has admitted that transfer funds are likely to be limited and he ‘d ‘ve as lil as £20m to spend on new players this summer. that fig will rise if leicester qualify for the victors league and/or rez funds with player sales.

wha’ does the team need? the focus ll'be on bolstering the squad’s attacking options, with rodgers and director of ftball lee congerton targeting forwards and wingers. leicester’s heavy reliance onna goals of the 33-yr-old jamie vardy was borne out this season, w'da team’s lengthy slump since the turn of the yr coinciding w'da elder england forward’s goal drought.

1-ly vardy was able to take his premier league goal tally into double figs and rodgers has made it a priority to find a reliable goal scorer to take the pressure of his most primordial player.

who are the major targets? real madrid‘s luka jovic and brentford winger said benrahma are leicester’s top targets, but they face stiff brawl for both players.

real are prepared to sell or loan serbia international jovic folloing his dismal 1st season atta bernabeu after arriving in a €60m move from eintracht frankfurt last summer. jovic scored just two goals last season for real, but his track record from his time at frankfurt has ensured that he still has admirers, with napoli, ac milan and west ham all linked w'da 22-yr-old.

benrahma, 24, is also attracting premier league interest, with arsenal and chelsea both monitoring the algerian, who s'been a key fig in brentford’s push for promotion to the premier league. predominantly a left-winger, wh'cn also play as a central striker, benrahma is rated at £30m by brentford.

who ‘d be leaving? rodgers has repeatedly insisted that ben chilwell aint for sale, but'a england left-back is a priority for both chelsea and manchester city, so leicester ‘d significantly bolster their transfer funds by selling the £80m-rated defender.

demarai gray may also be alloed to cutout folloing the elder birmingham forward’s failure to earn a regular starting spot under rodgers. islam slimani and adrien silva, both on loan at monaco, are available for transfer, with both sufferation nitemare spells atta king power stadium since completing big moves to the club in 2016 and 2018 respectively.

any new contracts coming? leicester are keen to extend the contracts of james maddison and caglar soyuncu in a bid to stave off interest inna pair, despite both having 3 yrs left to run on their deals. rodgers also wanna reward jonny evans witha new deal as the 32-yr-old elder manchester ∪d defender has played in every league game for leicester this season. — mark ogden.

julien laurens believes tottenham ll'be a tough side to beat and heaps prez on harry kane.

tottenham

budget: £50-60m. jose mourinho is still looking t'get a few players to strengthen his squad and will ‘ve mny to spend.

wha’ does the team need? when he joined tottenham to replace mauricio pochettino in nov, mourinho said that he didn’t wanna spend any mny in jan as he was very ☺ w'his squad. yet, he still signed steven bergwijn for £25m, made giovanni lo celso’s loan permanent for £30m and took 21-yr old portuguese midfielder gedson fernandes on loan for 18 mnths with an option to buy. now, mourinho is saying that his squad “doesn’t need major investment.” though one position he really wanna invest in is in midfield, and he ‘d also do witha rite-back, centre-back and backup striker.

who are the major targets? mourinho is a long admirer of pierre-emile hojbjerg. everton are also chasing the southampton midfielder so tottenham will ‘ve to be quick and table a £30m offer iffey wanna get him. srcs ‘ve told espn t'they will try to incorporate inna deal full-back kyle walkers-peters, who s'been on loan w'da saints this season. iffey can’t get him, another midfielder mourinho and his team are keen on his boubakary soumare from lille. the france u21 international s'been on spurs’ radar for a while but his price (round £50m) ‘d be too high.

at rite-back, serge aurier ‘d cutout with two yrs left on his deal and mourinho personally called thomas meunier to try to hijack his free transfer to dortmund but didn’t succeed. timothy castagne (atalanta) s'been scouted a few times, while srcs ‘ve told espn that mourinho likes norwich’s max aarons. at centre-back, the portuguese manager ‘d like to be re∪d with chelsea’s kurt zouma, if the club let him dept.

up front, harry kane will not cutout this summer and he needs a backup. srcs said that leicester’s islam slimani s'been offered to spurs, while napoli’s fernando llorente is an option to return to the club swell. tottenham spoke to lille striker victor osimhen‘s agent b4 the nigeria international agreed to join napoli, but his £75m price tag was too much for tottenham.

who ‘d be leaving? jan vertonghen and michel vorm are leaving the club na' free when their contracts expire this summer, while juan foyth ‘d be sold. but'a biggest issue is tanguy ndombele. the france international has clashed with mourinho many times this season and has told the club he won’t play for the manager again. ndombele tis club’s most expensive signing (£65m last summer) na 2nd highest earner behind kane. it ll'be hard to find a club ready to pay those №s, so a loan with an option to buy or obligation to buy seems the 1-ly possibility. a few clubs like him, s'as psg, but thris still a long way to go.

any new contracts coming? the club has recently extended toby alderweireld‘s contract til jun 2023 and eric dier‘s til jun 2024. srcs ‘ve told espn that talks with goalkeeper hugo lloris, whose deal expires in jun 2022, ‘d start inna coming mnths. — julien laurens.

arsenal

budget: ≤ £30m — iffey win the fa cup and gain entry to the europa league nxt season it maybe a lil +.

wha’ does the team need? centre-backs and a central midfielder. david luiz silenced some of his critics in arsenal’s fa cup semifinal win over manchester city but even alloing for william saliba‘s arrival from saint etienne, arsenal’s current crop has to be improved upon. arsenal ‘ve also lacked a uber, physical presence in central midfield for yrs and this is known to be an zone manager mikel arteta has identified. they will also need another forward if pierre-emerick aubameyang does not sign a new deal and is sold.

mny is tite and although qualification for the europa league by winning the fa cup ‘d help, the club are relying on swap deals, loan deals and player sales to maximise their budget.

who are the major targets? the gunners ‘ve been tracking atletico madrid‘s thomas ptey for some time but'a l8st noises from spain suggest the €50m-rated midfielder will sign a contract extension. if so, srcs ‘ve told espn that porto midfielder danilo pereira is viewed as an alternative option they may pursue. arsenal ‘ve scouted several centre-backs including barcelona’s samuel umtiti and rb leipzig’s dyot upamecano, but they won’t come cheap. celtic striker odsonne edouard is one possible option as a replacement for aubameyang.

who ‘d be leaving? arsenal will encourage offers for mesut ozil but'a midfielder ‘d prefer to stay in north london and clubs will struggle to meet his £350,000-a-week wage for any loan deal. matteo guendouzi‘s future is also uncertain after falling out of favour under arteta, while alexandre lacazette‘s situation is linked to aubameyang’s. he has two yrs remaining on his deal and arsenal will not allo both the frenchman and aubameyang to cutout inna same summer. back-up goalkeeper matt macey ‘d be alloed to dept given he has 12 mnths remaining.

any new contracts? w'his contract expiring in 2021, aubameyang’s future is inna balance but both pties are working towards a deal. tis not an exaggeration to say the 31-yr-old’s decision will set the tone for arsenal’s summer. if he stays the gunners can build round him, but if no agreement is reached aubameyang ‘d be sold to help fund a rebuild. dani ceballos is expected to extend his loan stay from real madrid for the 2020-21 season, while emiliano martinez ‘d be rewarded for his fine form deputising in goal for the injured bernd leno towards the end of the season. — james olley.

nicky bandini explains why a swap deal involving barcelona and lautaro martinez ‘d be a mistake for inter.

barcelona

budget: barcelona will 1-ly be able to use mny from sales to make signings or via swap deals. every summer the catalan club ‘ve tween €60-75m to be spend on new players, in addition to any mny generated by deptures, but it s'been wiped out due to coronavirus pandemic’s impact onna financial mkts. but they had already agreed to sign forward francisco trincao from braga for €31m b4 the coronavirus crisis hit, which may affect their budget.

wha’ does the team need? having already signed miralem pjanic from juventus (in a swap deal with arthur melo which saw them net €12m) to bolster the midfield, they are still looking for a top forward, a left-back to replace junior firpo if he cutouts and a centre-back who ‘d become the long-term replacement for gerard pique. they mite also need a rite-back if nelson semedo is sold, or swapped.

who are the major targets? lautaro martinez tis top priority to bolster the attack ahead of neymar as they ‘ve identified the inter milan striker as the perfect man to replace luis suarez long term. the problem s'dat inter will 1-ly let him go for his €111m release clause, so they will ‘ve to creative if a deal is to be done. meanwhile, barcelona are also closely monitoring the situation of 19-yr-old manchester city centre-back eric garcia and ‘d try to re-sign him as his contract atta etihad stadium will expire in 2021.

who ‘d be leaving? philippe coutinho, samuel umtiti, junior firpo, arturo vidal, martin braithw8e, ivan rakitic, jean-clair todibo, ousmane dembele … almost every player inna squad is up for sale if the rite offer comes along, except for the trio of lionel messi, marc-andre ter stegen and frenkie de jong.

any new contracts coming? messi is out of contract in 2021 and ter stegen in 2022 so the club are keen to tie them to new deals soon. rakitic has 1-ly one yr on his contract but barcelona don’t plan t'offer him a new deal and will try to sell him this summer to avoid losing him for free in 2021. semedo’s situation is a tricky one as barcelona are willing to listen to offers for the portugal international, but if he doesn’t cutout this summer then the club will try to extend his contract as his deal expires in 2022. — moises llorens and sam marsden.

who ‘d be leaving? there’s plenty of work to be done here. madrid will look to bring $$$ in where they can, with achraf hakimi‘s €40m sale to inter the 1st deal to be motivated primarily by finances. coach zinedine zidane ‘d ♥ t'get rid of gareth bale and james rodriguez, although bale’s agent jonathan barnett continues to insist that the welshman is ☺ and intends to see out his deal til 2022. finding a buyer for james ‘d be + straiteforward with interest from the premier league and serie a.

if thiago cutouts then bayern will likely turn to french midfielder corentin tolisso to step into his shoes. if alaba depts, they’ll want lucas hernandez to fulfil his promise after last summer’s €80m arrival from atletico madrid. javi martinez, whose contract is up in 2021, looks set to move on, but jerome boateng is expected to stay for nxt season.

then thris bayern’s loan contingent. they did not take up the €120m option to sign philippe coutinho from barcelona and t'looks unlikely they will meet inter’s asking price for winger ivan perisic. alvaro odriozola, who arrived in jan from real madrid, will likely return to the spanish giants but his long-term future thris uncertain.
