The Premier League’s summer transfer window is open with Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal set to be busier than ever.

For the first time in over two decades Arsenal will head into the offseason with a new manager at the helm. That man will be former PSG boss Unai Emery after a stunning 11th hour change of heart at the Emirates. At United Jose Mourinho looks set to spend big again as he targets reinforcements in his bid to haul in record-breaking Manchester City next season. A new left-back and central midfield player are high on his list. FredSergej Milinkovic-Savic and others are in the frame.

Liverpool have enjoyed success in the Champions League this term and their quest to end their league title drought in 2019 will be bolstered by the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig – he will not be the last new face on Merseyside, however with Lyon’s Nabil Fekir one to watch. Chelsea could well be looking for a new manager themselves but Mauricio Pochettino has signed a new long-term contract at Tottenham Hotspur in a huge boost to the club.

We will have all the latest news, views, rumours, gossip and done deals right here so don’t touch that dial.
