21 Transfers That Will Dominate The Summer

It’s that time of year again – Europe’s top clubs are taking stock of the season it was in and are starting to plot out how they will change their squads for the upcoming campaign.

Mass transfer coups have already been sealed in recent weeks – Manchester City’s move to Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe’s decision to stay at PSG.

Here we go through some other potential relocation sagas that could dominate the summer window.

1. Darwin Nunez (Benfica)

interested: Liverpool, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid

Estimated cost: €64m-76m

One of the most exciting young strikers in the world, and a player seen by many of the leading clubs in Europe. Brighton, Newcastle and West Ham have all made efforts to sign Nunez over the past year but are understood to be determined to join the Champions League club, which could be bad news for Manchester United. A move to Spain is currently seen as the most likely outcome.

2. Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City)

interested: Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur

Estimated cost: €41m-53m

Arsenal are keen to bring Jesus back to the Emirates by reuniting him with former Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta, but Tottenham Hotspur are also looking to Brazil. Jesus only has one year left on his current contract, but City will still expect to receive a hefty fee.

3. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)

interested: Newcastle, West Ham, Arsenal

Estimated cost: €46m-59m

Newcastle have a long-standing interest in Calvert-Lewin, who has also caught the eye of Arsenal and West Ham in the past. Everton are understood to want €58m for the England international, a lot of money for a player who has endured an injury-ridden campaign. His form last season, when he scored 21 goals, was more impressive.

4. Tammy Abraham (Roma)

interested: armory

Estimated cost: €64m-76m

After a hugely successful first campaign in Italy, in which he became the highest scorer in a Serie A season, there will be no shortage of clubs looking to bring Abraham back to the Premier League. Arsenal have shown serious interest in the past, but Roma will undoubtedly demand a sizable fee for a player they signed last year for €40m.

5. Armando Broza (Chelsea)

interested: West Ham, Southampton

Estimated cost: €23m-35m

Southampton would like to keep Broja, who impressed on loan from Chelsea, and West Ham are also interested in the striker. His Chelsea future remains uncertain but the club has the form to capitalize on its talented young players.

6. Victor Osimhen (Napoli)

interested: armory

Estimated cost: €76m-88m

Reports in Italy suggest that Napoli are demanding a hefty fee for Osimhen, whom he signed from Lille in 2020 for around €70m. The 23-year-old is a mighty No. 9, strong in the air and quick across the field, but will be any club willing to meet the price of demand for a player who still has three years left on his current deal ?

7. Youri Tielemans (Leicester City)

interested: armory

Estimated cost: €29m-41m

With one year left on his contract, this is perhaps his last chance for Leicester to sell Tielemann for a significant fee. His form has declined in recent months but he remains one of the most technically gifted players in the Premier League. Arsenal have scouted him extensively.

8. Jesse Lingard (free agent)

interested: West Ham, Rome

Estimated cost: free

West Ham would love to bring Lingard back to the club after his hugely successful loan spell last year. The 29-year-old will have no shortage of options, however, as his status as a free agent makes him an attractive prospect for many clubs across Europe. Reports in Italy have suggested that Roma are interested.

9. Christian Eriksson (free agent)

interested: Brentford, Tottenham, Leicester

Estimated cost: free

Ericsson proved his fitness and his quality in his six-month spell at Brentford. The Danish playmaker is desperate to represent his country at the World Cup and could stay in west London.

10. Alexander Zinchenko (Manchester City)

interested: armory

Estimated cost: €35m-47m

Zinchenko is a versatile player who can work in midfield, on the wing or as a left-back. He is therefore a logical target for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, who worked with the 25-year-old during his time as an assistant to Pep Guardiola.

11. Aaron Hickey (Bologna)

interested: Brentford, Arsenal

Estimated cost: €11m-23m

Hickey has a long list of fans, a 19-year-old full-back who impressed in Serie A this season and is a full-fledged Scotland international. Brentford is hoping to win the race for his signature.

12. Jules Conde (Sevilla)

interested: Chelsea

Estimated cost: €47m-59m

Chelsea almost signed Kaunde from Sevilla last year and are looking forward to completing the move this time around. Last month it was reported that Kaunde was keen to join.

13. Josko Guardiol (RB Leipzig)

interested: Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United

Estimated cost: €47m-59m

Gvardiol is left-footed, which makes him more valuable as a centre-back, and is seen as one of Europe’s most promising defenders. Chelsea, United and Tottenham are all in the market for central defenders.

14. Alessandro Bastoni (Inter Milan)

interested: tottenham

Estimated cost: €47m-59m

Bastoni is wanted by Antonio Conte, who managed the Italian at Inter Milan. At 23, Bastoni is another young defensive prospect that won’t come cheap.

15. Mark Cucurella (Brighton)

interested: Manchester City

Estimated cost: €30-40m

Pep Guardiola is a fan of Cucurella, who enjoyed a great first season of English football. Cucurella can also play left-back, left wing-back and to the left of back three.

16. Jack Harrison (Leeds United)

interested: Newcastle

Estimated cost: €24m-35m

Harrison has impressed in the Premier League and caught the eye of Newcastle manager Eddie Howe. It was reported last month that a deal could be difficult to complete, with Leeds expected to resist offers from a major player.

17. Sven Boutman (Lily)

interested: Newcastle, AC Milan

Estimated cost: €35m-47m

Boutman appeared close to joining Milan, but there is now a belief Newcastle can win the race for the 22-year-old centre-back. Newcastle made two bids for Boutman in January, both of which were rejected.

18. Cheeque Doucoure (Lens)

interested: diamond palace

Estimated cost: €17m

A dynamic midfielder who has emerged as one of the brightest talents in Ligue 1 since helping Lens win promotion in 2020. He has two years left on his contract and is highly rated, so Palace may find it difficult to land him.

19. Reuben Neves (Wolves)

interested: Barcelona, ​​Manchester United

Estimated cost: €47m-60m

Wolves are seeking a £70million fee for Neves, who admitted after the final game of the season that his future with the club was uncertain. The Portuguese midfielder has been a long-term target for Barcelona and his sale could be the key to Bruno Lage’s own transfer business this summer.

20. Calvin Phillips (Leeds United)

interested: Manchester City, Liverpool, Aston Villa

Estimated cost: €60m-70m

The England midfielder tops Man City’s list of transfer goals and Liverpool were also thought of monitoring the situation. Aston Villa has also been linked with the 26-year-old, but Leeds is negotiating a contract with Phillips and an exit is not guaranteed.

21. Rafinha (Leeds United)

interested: barcelona

Estimated cost: €58m

The Brazilian is expected to leave land Road this summer to make his signing with the Barcelona favorite. Leeds’ survival means the deal will be more expensive than it could have been, which could open the door for other clubs to swoon.
