With the 2023/24 Premier League campaign set to get underway in exactly a week, transfer plans are expected to be accelerated over the coming days. All of the Big Six are on the cusp of breakthroughs in their respective negotiations, and they could be forced to compromise if bids are knocked back so soon to next season.
Chelsea are expected to announce the arrival of Axel Disasi from Monaco imminently, with a deal in principle now also agreed with Brighton for Robert Sanchez worth up to £25million. However, talks with the Seagulls for Moises Caicedo are ongoing and they are prepared to table another bid for his services, though it remains to be seen whether it matches his £100m valuation.
Manchester United are also on the verge of announcement after welcoming Rasmus Hojlund to their squad from Atalanta in a deal that could reach £72m. Erik ten Hag made it his priority to sign at least one striker this summer, and a second arrival in that department should not be ruled out.
Manchester City and Tottenham have also reportedly agreed on respective deals for Josko Gvardiol and Alejo Veliz, but it is unclear whether either player will be ready for the opening weekend of the upcoming season. Express Sport keeps you up to date with all the latest transfer news…
