We only have one game left of the Premier League season with just the Champions League and Europa League finals to come after that before an off-season packed with international football with the Euros and Copa America.
The football just doesn’t stop and clubs are desperate to bring in new players to support their existing ones after one of the most gruelling two years of action in recent memory, given the lack of a proper break.
And there are some big names expected to move in a transfer window which could provide a seismic shift in the European football landscape.
Here’s all the latest gossip and rumours doing the rounds…

SANCHO RACE HAS ANOTHER RUNNER
Manchester United had a free run at signing Jadon Sancho last year but Borussia Dortmund’s £120m asking price proved too costly as neither side was willing to budge on their valuation of the England winger.
However, with a year less on his existing Dortmund contract and a reported ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ to allow him to leave, the Bundesliga side’s asking price has apparently dropped significantly.
That alerted Liverpool to situation as they look to revamp their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, with the latter two stuttering somewhat this season during a difficult title defence.
And now Manchester United appear to have a third challenger, with Chelsea entering the £80m race for Sancho – apparently not already satisfied with the embarrassment of attacking riches they possess in the likes of Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and more.
The Sun claims Thomas Tuchel is a huge fan of Sancho as he prepares for his first transfer window and the London-born Manchester City academy prospect is desperate to move home to be closer to family.
A good Euro 2020 will see his transfer fee pushed up closer to the £100m mark but all clubs want to get their business done early.
CHELSEA’S KANE PLAN B
Chelsea are reportedly one of the three clubs to have made contact with Harry Kane’s representatives, along with Manchester United and Manchester City, after the England captain made it clear he wants to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window in search of trophies.
According to many reports, Kane’s preference is to head to Manchester, likely with City, given the rivalry Spurs fans have with Chelsea and the unwillingness he holds to completely turn his back on those who have cheered him on throughout his career.
That has left the Blues searching for plan B, and although the likes of Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku have been explored, German news outlet Sky Sport claims they have “made contact” with Poland and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
Bayern have insisted the 32-year-old is not for sale under any circumstances but should a bidding war for Haaland begin, the German giants would also be involved in the conversation.
That would push forward any potential plans to hold onto Lewandowski until his successor comes along, with Chelsea primed and ready to take full advantage.
‘NO CHANCE’ FOR ARSENAL
Arsenal are looking to stage another rebuild during the summer transfer window having suffered yet another below-par season which has been mostly spent in no man’s land of mid-table mediocrity.
A key player they have targeted with the hope of playing a major part in their rebuild is France midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
The 18-year-old has lit up Ligue 1 this season with his performances for Rennes and has held off on signing a new deal with the club as he looks to take his talents elsewhere to progress further.
However, according to The Athletic, that place will not be Arsenal, with the publication revealing the Gunners have “no chance” of signing the French teen.
Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also hot on the tail of Camavinga and a departure from Rennes still appears to be the plan.
