While this summer’s window is some way off the excitement we’ve enjoyed in previous years, this month could see a flurry of activity, with the Premier League’s big guns Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United still looking to strengthen.
Here are five deals that really could happen this month…
5. Kevin De Bruyne to Manchester City
Sky Sports reported on Monday that the Citizens had offered Wolfsburg £47m for the signature of their prised playmaker.
De Bruyne hugely struggled to cement a position during his two-year spell with Chelsea, but his performances last season – in which he produced a record tally of 21 assists in a single Bundesliga campaign – may have earned him a return to the Premier League.
Despite his influence at the Volkswagen arena, it would be naive not to question his ability in England’s top flight having failed to make an impression first time.
Nonetheless, Manuel Pellegrini seems convinced.
