What can we expect from the transfer window?

 

Chelsea are looking to add a new centre-back, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen set to leave the club this summer. Names including Jules Kounde and Pau Torres are linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

Youri Tielemans

Youri Tielemans is one of the most successful and promising footballers to come out of Belgium in recent years. He was the youngest Belgian player to play in the UEFA Champions League and he also won the Belgian Premier League twice with Anderlecht.

A lot of attention has been on him during his career so far and he has been linked with a number of clubs around the world. But his transfer seems unlikely as he has just a year left on his contract at Leicester City and the club are keen to tie him down on their terms.

Despite this, he has remained highly-linked with Arsenal and it is believed that they are still interested in signing him on a free transfer next summer. However, they may decide to hold out for a better deal as they are unlikely to want to pay Leicester’s asking price.

The Belgian midfielder was a key player in the Foxes’ success last season and has been regularly selected as captain in pre-season games, a sign that they value him as a player. As well as his football skills, he is also known for his fitness and his leadership qualities.

His wife Mendy and son Melina are a big part of his life. They have a beautiful house in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw and also have a huge car collection that includes a Black Audi.

Darwin Nunez

Darwin Nunez has signed a long-term deal at Liverpool, completing a move from Benfica that could break the club’s transfer record. The 22-year-old is set to become the latest addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side following the arrival of Luis Diaz and Fabio Carvalho in the last six months.

The Uruguayan striker has been tipped for huge success at the club, having scored 34 goals in 41 appearances during his first season with Benfica. His form has led to a host of clubs pursuing him, including Manchester United and Newcastle.

However, it appears that he has already made his decision to join Liverpool, with 90min reporting that England and the Premier League are his preferred destinations. With the Reds looking to replace Sadio Mane, whose move to Bayern Munich is expected this summer, Nunez is seen as an ideal replacement.

It is worth noting that Liverpool will have to pay PS64 million upfront for Nunez, with an additional PS21m paid in add-ons if he proves to be successful. This would make him the most expensive Liverpool player ever, eclipsing Virgil van Dijk’s PS75m deal in 2018.

In some ways, this is a baptism of fire for the 22-year-old. While he does not possess the goalscoring prowess of Robert Lewandowski or Erling Haaland, he is more technically proficient and offers Liverpool’s current attack the instinctive ability to turn their chances into goals.

Manchester City

The summer of 2017 has been a busy time for Manchester City. They have had a few players leave the club and are looking to bolster their squad in the transfer market this summer. They are hoping to improve their squad in the summer so that they can challenge for the Premier League title next season.

The club are attempting to build a team that can compete for multiple trophies, including the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. Their squad is full of talented young players who have been developed under the guidance of one of the world’s top managers, Pep Guardiola.

They have also managed to sell a number of players that were not performing as they should be. This includes the sale of Raheem Sterling to Southampton and Gabriel Jesus to Real Madrid.

These sales were successful and proved that the club have a bold attitude when it comes to player trading. This approach has been reflected throughout the entire club and it is something that will be used in the future as they continue to grow.

While the summer of 2017 has been a busy one for Manchester City, there are still some areas that need improvement. The club is currently five points behind the leaders in the Premier League and they have 12 games to play until the end of the season.

As well as a number of key players that are struggling to find form, the club has suffered from a few injuries to their players as well. This has resulted in some stuttering performances that has left fans disappointed.

The summer of 2022 will see a busy time for the football club as they attempt to strengthen their squad in order to secure a spot in next season’s Premier League. With many key players rumoured to be leaving the club, this is a good opportunity for them to make some changes.

As well as a few big name players, there are some young stars that need to be given the chance to shine and impress in the first team at the Etihad Stadium. These young players are the ones that can help the club in their quest to become a dominant force in English football and they will need to be given the chance to prove themselves before they can expect to be called upon.

Chelsea

There is a lot of talk about what football transfers are expected in the summer of 2017 for Chelsea. There is a clear desire to improve the club and add some depth. However, they will need to be careful not to make any rash decisions.

This season, Chelsea have lost a number of key players including Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, both of whom are set to move to Barcelona. These losses leave them with an immediate hole at left-back, as well as several other positions in the middle of the pitch.

In addition, they have a shortage of goalscorers in their squad and are looking for some new faces. According to The Guardian, Chelsea are considering Napoli striker Victor Osimhen as a possible solution for their goalscoring problems.

The club has also been linked with a number of other strikers such as Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, but these players are unlikely to be brought in this summer. Instead, the club will focus on adding a new center-forward to their side.

If they do decide to make a move for a centre-forward this summer, it will be a big one. The club is also reportedly interested in signing a top defender.

While Chelsea have spent a lot of money in the transfer market this season, they are still short of players to fill these roles. They have signed Alvaro Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko, but they haven’t brought in many others.

In fact, their wing-back situation is even worse than it was last year. Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta are both expected to leave the club this summer.

It will be interesting to see if Conte can get the most out of the players that they have. He will have to be sure that they are all playing well for the club before making a decision on whether or not they will be sold.

Hopefully, they can find players that will be ready to perform in the league and in Europe. A Champions League campaign is a good time to make some changes and bring in some new talent.

Tottenham

Despite having a fantastic season last year, Tottenham are likely to be looking to overhaul their squad in the summer. With Mauricio Pochettino expected to be back in charge next season, he will be keen to make sure that the north London club have the players that can help them go even further in the competition.

One area where Tottenham will have to think about their options is in the middle of the park. They have been very successful at getting quality players to fill the gaps in their team over the last few years, but this is one area where they may want to do something a little different.

There are a number of names that are on the transfer radar at the moment, and it will be interesting to see what Spurs decide to do with them. It’s also important to consider what they actually need from these players.

The first area that Mauricio Pochettino could look to improve is in the midfield. He is currently lacking a player in this area that can offer some flair and dynamism to the team. He has signed Richarlison from Everton and he’s already made an impact, but it would be great to have another player that could offer a bit of creativity and flair.

This is where Christian Eriksen comes in. He’s a fantastic young midfielder, and it’s easy to see why Levy chose to get him. It’s hard to imagine any other young midfielder who can come in and have the same kind of impact on the team that Eriksen has had.

He’s also a very good goal-scorer, which is what Spurs need at this stage of their career. Harry Kane has been a top striker for them over the last couple of seasons and it would be fantastic to have someone else in the team that can score as many goals as he does.

There are a number of other areas where Tottenham will need to strengthen. They will need a strong defence, they will need a backup goalkeeper and they need to add some quality to their attack.

West Ham

West Ham have been a popular club in recent years, with a positive 2021/22 campaign leading to qualification for the UEFA Europa League. David Moyes has a strong squad at his disposal, but the Hammers may not have enough depth in key areas to compete in the top six this season.

Several players have left the club in the last few seasons, including influential captain Mark Noble and the likes of Ryan Fredericks, Andriy Yarmolenko and David Martin. The departures have prompted talk of a fresh approach to signings in the summer.

Slaven Bilic was brought in for the 2016/17 season to rejuvenate a team that had suffered under Mark Sullivan. The former Borussia Dortmund manager quickly realised that the Hammers had a serious problem with transfer policy.

A series of financially draining'marquee signings' were made over the course of the campaign, with no clear system or strategy in place to make them work as a team. In addition, West Ham paid out more in agent fees than the Premier League's big boys - an extortionate amount of money that should have given Bilic and Sullivan the confidence to build a more sustainable squad.

In addition, the West Ham squad has suffered a number of injuries in the past few months. Those injuries have been the main reason why West Ham have struggled to get the most out of their team so far this season.

As a result, several promising young players have been sent out on loan to gain game time and bolster the first team squad. There are a number of loanees that have done well for West Ham this season, including Armstrong Okoflex and Connor Coventry.

The Irons could use these loanees as a springboard into the 2022/23 season, as they look to restructure and rebuild their squad. If these youngsters impress during preseason, they could be a strong contender for a first team position come the end of the season.

The summer is an opportunity to bring in fresh talent, especially at the centre-back position. Nayef Aguerd, the former Rennes defender is an exciting prospect and looks to be an ideal partner for Kurt Zouma. He can also score goals from set pieces, something that he excelled at in the French league and which will fit into the West Ham system perfectly.
