Summer is upon us as Premier League clubs focus on strengthening their squads during the transfer window.
Chelsea are keen to refresh their attacking line and are reportedly ready to launch a bid for RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku to beat interest from rivals.
At Tottenham, the situation is brighter. Fresh off of a £150m cash injection by the owners, Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on a £12m move for Eintracht Frankfurt full-back Filip Kostic, while Harry Kane could be set to re-sign his future at the club.
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is another who could be on the move. Arsenal are said to have held talks, but now Manchester United are heavily linked with hijacking a potential deal. Elsewhere at Old Trafford, new boss Erik ten Hag is a fan of Norwich defender Max Aarons.
