The summer football transfer news is on!
The long football season for most clubs is over and now all football clubs will start the work behind the scenes and try to bring in new players.
That means it’s time for the football transfer news to kick in to action and take over all the media airwaves.
The world seems to be obsessed with the English Premier League so let’s take a look at what your club needs for next season.
New signings for the 2019/2020 season, who will be in and who will be out at your club?
To keep competing in the highest rewarding league, financially the clubs need to keep moving forward with new players.
(What your club needs!)
The style of attacking football manager Eddie Howe likes to play means results can be very hit-and-miss.
One week they score four and the week after they conceded four. That tells us there is no problem with the attacking talent at the club it’s in defence that needs strengthening.
A holding midfielder to break up play and more quality in the defence could do the trick for them. Getting the best players at the club, down on long term contracts should be top priority for this now well-established top flight club.
Out of contract: Artur Boruc
Confirmed as leaving: Tyrone Mings ( Aston Villa) ; LYs Mousset (Sheffield United) ; Connor Mahoney ( Millwall) ; Emerson Hyndman (Atlanta United)
New signings: Jack Stacey(Luton) ; Lloyd Kelly(Bristol City)
The squad looks unbalanced and lacking leadership. This means that a major rebuilding exercise needs to take place.
A whole new back five and a holding midfield player should be top of the clubs scouting lists. At times the defence looks so vulnerable and disjointed, with goals being leaked at an alarming rate.
The problem with bringing in a whole load of new signings is the money that seems to be available for the manager Unai Emery to spend. If it’s true he only has forty million to buy players with, then it might be a case of blooding younger players from the youth set up at the club. This may mean another average season for the frustrated Loyal Arsenal fans.
Confirmed as leaving : Danny Wellbeck (no club), Arron Ramsey(Juventus), Petr Check(retiring) ; David Ospina(Ssc Napoli) ; Stephen Lichsteiner (no club) ; Denis Suarez (no club)
New signings : Wiliam Slaiba(from Sain-Etienne) ; Dani Ceballos (loan from Real Madrid) ; Gabriel Martinelli (Ituano)
Winning the Championship play off final means that this sleeping giant of a club is back in the top flight.
With a whole host of players on loan and some of them bound to return to their parent clubs. New faces are a must.
Like all newly promoted sides goals in the premiership finding a player to score enough goals could be a problem.
A priority should be strikers who have top flight experience who can bag at least ten goals in a season in the top division.
Confirmed as leaving: Ross McCormack ; Richie De Laet (Royal Antwerp) ; Corey Taylor (Taylor) ; Albert Adomah (Notts Forrest) ; Jordan Lyden (Swindon)
New signings: Jota (for Birmingham) ; Kortney Hause(wolves); Matt Trgett(Southampton); Tyrone Mings(Bournemouth); Ezri Konsa(brentford); Douglas Luiz(Manchester City) ; Trezguet (Kasimpasa) ; Bjorn Engles (Reims)
Finishing one place off relegation meant that the club decided to sack their manager Chris Hughton and look in a different direction.
It seems the club want to play a more attractive style of play so they have brought in Graham Potter as the new manager.
This may cause the club to look at different attacking options like a Quick wide player. They may need another central midfielder who can keep hold of the ball and get it moving forward at pace.
Could they look to more of their youth players to bring more attacking energy into the team?
Confirmed as leaving: Bruno (returing) ; Robert Sanzhez loan(Rochdale) ; Jyson Moulmby loan ( Millwall) ; Christian Walton loan ( Blackburn Rovers) ; Anthony Knockaert (Fulham) ; Ben Barclay loan (Accrington)
New signings; Leandro Trossard (Genk) ; Matt Clark (Portsmouth) ;Taylor Richards (ManCity)
With a certain style of play whoever comes in during the transfer window needs to be a whole hearted and fully committed player.
With a few too many goals conceded last season, reinforcements in the back line should be top of the list.
With three top class goalkeepers, could one of them be heading out of the club to look for regular first team action.
This could be a challenging transfer window for Burnley to bring in quality new faces.
Confirmed as leaving: Anders Lindgaard ; Stephen Ward (Stoke)
Out of Contract : Peter Crouch
New Signings: Jay Rodrigues (West Brom) ; Eric Peters(Stoke)
The potential of a football transfer ban looming for breach of the financial laws.
Any transfers that the club wants to make might be on hold. It could mean that the club have to take a new direction and look to the vast amount of quality younger talent they have at the club and out own loan at other clubs.
Last seasons manager Maurizio Sari has now gone back to Italy and club legend Frank Lampard has been placed in managerial charge for the new season.
Confirmed as leaving: Gary Cahill ; Ehtan Ampadu loan ( RB Leipzig) ; Jack Clarke-Salter loan ( Birmingham) ; Matt Miazga loan ( Reading) ; Eden Hazzard (Real Madrid) ; Luke McCormic loan ( Shrewsbury)
Eduardo (Braga) ; Marcin Bulka(Psg) ; Ola Aina (Torino) ; Tomas Kalas (Bristol City)
New signings: Mateo Kovacic (Real Madrid)
Out of contract: WIlly Cabellero, Rob Green
Scoring goals seem to be a major problem for this team.
Two new striker and a creative attacking central midfield player could be added to make them into a more attacking team.
New central defenders to stop them leaking goals would also make them stronger. With Goalkeeper Julian Speroni having left the club, a new goalkeeper is required for the squad. The biggest worry is that the big star of the team Zaha seems destined to receive a big money transfer
Confirmed as leaving: Jason Punchon, Julian Speroni ; Jordan Ayew (Swansea) ; Aaron Wna-Bissaka (Man United)
Out of contract: Bakery Sako, Pape Souare.
New Signings: Stephen Henderson loan (Notts Forrest) ; Jordan Ayew (Swansea)
Another indifferent season for Everton means they will be looking for more consistancy when the new season comes around.
They have the baisis of a top six squad but need to find more goals up the top end of the pitch to challange for a top four fininsh.
Another front man and a wide forward player. an aging defence meant some players will move on
Top quality centre back and left back should be top of the transfer list.
Confirmed as leaving: Leighton Baines (out of contract), Phil Jagielka (Sheffield United) ; Ademola Lookman (Rb Leipzig)
Ryan Tafazolli (Hull) ; Josh Bowler loan ( Hull) ; Antonee Robinson (Wigan) ; Luke Garbutt loan (Ipswich) ; Kieran Dowell (Derby)
New Signings: Fabian Delp (Manchester City) ; Jonas Lossi (Huddersfield) ; Andre Gomes (Barcelona)
Leicester City FC
A squad full talented youngsters, but can they keep hold of them as another big club will surely be looking to see if they can prize them away from the club.
If they do lose the left full back Ben Chilwell and central midfield player Madison, then those two areas will need replacing.
Can they keep hold of Harry Maguire as the two Manchester clubs look to prize him away for vast amout of money.
Confirmed as Leaving: Shinji Okazaki, Danny Simpson ; Daniel Iversen loan ( Rotherham) ; Lamine Kaba Sherif (Accrington Stanley)
New signings: Yiuri Tielemans (Monaco) ; Ayoze Perez (Newcastle) ; James Justin ( Luton)
To push once again for the biggest titles, then small adjustments to the squad need to take place. Another experienced central striker who score goals could make the squad even better.
A new left back to add strength to the squad and another creative midfield player could deliver the title back to Anfield for the first time in thirty years next season.
It looks as if there might not be much transfer activity at Anfield, as Klopp seems to be very happy with his squad as it is.
Could this be a massive mistake not bringing in a few fresh faces?
Out of contract: Daniel Sturridge ; Alberton Moreno (Villerreal); Kamil Grabara loan (Huddersfield) ; Sheyi Ojo loan(Rangers) ; Marko Grujic loan(Hertha Berlin)
New Signings: Andy Lonergan (Middlesbrough) ; Sepp van de Berg ; Harvey Elliott (Fulham)
Not much needs changing as the Squad has very little weaknesses in it.
Left back might need looking at just to make the squad even better. It all depends if any players get let go as to which areas they might strengthen.
It’s frightning to think they may add more talent to this already inpressive squad.
Who can stop them next season?
Confirmed as leaving: Vincent Kompany (Anderlecht) ; Douglas Luiz (Aston Villa) ; Fabian Delf (Everton) ; Therry Ambrose (Metz) ; Anthony Caceres ( Sydney FC) ; Taylor Richards (Brighton) ; Tom Dele-Bashiru (Watford)
New signings:Angelino (PSV Eindhoven) ; Rodri (Athletico Madrid) ; Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew)
Problably the biggest changes will take place at Old Trafford this transfer window. With a whole host of players been told they can go means that new faces will be on their way to take their place and change the fortunes of this squad.
It is rumoured that up to fifteen players could be on the way out.
It is a case of watch this space and no area of the team is safe so all positions need looking at.
A sixth place finish is not good enough for one of the biggest clubs in the World, so expect action in the transfer market to have lift off very soon.
Confirmed as leaving: Ander Herrera ; Antonio Valencia ; Dean Henderson loan ( Sheffield United) ; James Wilson (Aberdeen) ; Matthew Olosunde (Rotherham)
New signings : Aaron Wan-Bisaka (Crystal Palace) ; Daniel James (Swansea)
If the sale of the club goes through and new wealthy owners come in, then Newcastle can finally compete and go for players with a higher transfer price and better quality.
It’s all if’s and buts at the moment. If it stays as it is, then more of the same standard and a few more squad players need be added.
The beloved manager Rafel Benitez has gone and new manager Steve Bruce has been placed in charged.
This is going to be a big transfer window for this team if they want to keep hold of the premier league status.
Confirmed as leaving: Liam Gibson loan (Grimsby) ; Mohamed Diame (Al Ahil) ; Ayoze Perez (Leicester) ; Joselu (Alves)
New Signings; Joelinto (Hoffenheim)
They won the Championship with a relatively unknown squad to earn a place in the Premiership.
Playing free flowing attacking football so don’t expect any big name signings, just a few players with some Premier league experience.
Will they go with the same squad that got them up and see how they go in the top league?
Confirmed new three year deal for goalkeeper Tim Krul
Confirmed as leaving; Simon Power loan (Ross County) ; Sean Raggett loan ( Portsmouth) ; Yanic Widschut( M.Haifa) ; Tristan Abrahms (Newport)
New signings: Sam Byram (West Ham) ; Ralf Fahrmann loan (Schalke) ; Aidan Fitzpatrick (Partick Thistle) ; Josip Drmic (Borussia Monchengladbach) ; Charlie Gilmour(Arsenal) ; Daniel Adshead (Rochdale)
The third of the newly promoted teams to the Premiership.
With a squad of players that many people would never have heard of, and a style of football that is unique to the way they play.
This could be a very interesting season and a battle for the blades to survive in the Premier league. The budget will be lower than every other team in the division, so any players that come in will have to blend in with the squad in place at the moment. More top flight experience in central defence could be one area they look at.
Confirmed as leaving; Regan Slater loan ( Scunthorpe) ; Tyler Smith loan ( Bristol Rovers) ; Jake Eastwood loan (Scunthorpe) ; Rhys Norrington-Davies loan (Rochdale) ; Callem Semple( Queen of the South) ; Paul Coutts (Fleetwood)
New signings; Lys Moussett ( Bournemouth) ; Ravel Morrison ; Callum Robinson ( preston North End) ; Luke Freeman (Qpr) ; Ben Osbourn (Notts Forrest) ; Phil Jagielka ( Everton)
After a shaky first half to last season they found their form, and were impressive towards the end of last seasons campaign.
Another holding midfielder to shield the back four and a few more goals and a top ten finish could be on the cards for the saints next season.
Can they once again keep hold of their top players or will they be sold?
Confirmed as leaving: Steven Davis (Rangers) ; Sam Gallager (Blackburn) ; Jack Rose loan (Walsall) ; Matt Target (Aston Villa)
New signings; Danny Ings (Liverpool) ; Che Adams (Birmingham)
No new signing for the last two transfer windows leads me to think that the squad needs freshening up.
New faces could spark new life into a very solid squad.
Another creative midfielder, central striker and a right back are musts for this squad to maintain the top for place.
Also keeping hold of the best players could be the biggest challenge as other top teams pay much higher wages and we all know how money talks in football.
Confirmed as leaving: Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid) ; Vincent Janssen (Monterrey)
New Signings: Kion Etete ( Notts County) ; Jack Clark (leeds) ; Tanguy Ndombele( Lyon)
A very impressive season with some entertaining football through out the league campaign, saw then finish in eight position in the league.
I would say just adding more quality to the squad could see them push for a top six finish. a top central defender is what they should look for.
The way they do transfers seems to be working for this club, so more of the same could see another strong Premier league campaign this season.
Out of contract: Miguel Britos, Heurelho Gomes (expected to retire), Tommie Hoban
Confirmed as leaving: Alex Jakubiak loan (Gillingham) ; Ben Wilmot loan (Swansea) ; Andrew Eleftheriou (Dag & Red) ; Sam Howes (Woking)
New signings: Tom Dele-Bashiru (Manchester City) ; Craig Dawson (West Brom) ; Sam Dalby (Leeds); Kane Crichlow (AFC Wimbledon)
An ever evolving squad that is full of talent but can not find the consistency to push them up towards the top six.
Getting goals is a must is they are looking for new players to bring in.
Two new strikers should be top of their shopping list.
Out of contract: Andy Carroll, Samir Nasri, Adrian
Comfirmed as leaving: Marcus Browne (Middlesbrough) ; Pedro Obiang (Sassuolo) ; Sam Byram (Norwich) ;Marco Arnautovic (Shanghai SIPG) ; Nathan Trott loan (Wimbledon) ; Sami Nasri (Anderlecht)
New signings: Sebastien Haller (Eintracht Frankfurt) ; Pablo Fornals (Villerreal) ; Roberto (Espanyol)
A brilliant first season back in the Premier league and a seventh place finish.
The club is ambitious and wants top four, so expect more quality players to walk through the door in this transfer window.
More quality could be added in the wider positions.
With European football this season a bigger squad is needed to compete in all competetions.
Confirmed as leaving: Ethan Ebanks-Landell (Shrewsbury Town) ; Joe Mason( Milton Keynes Dons) ; Ivan Cavaleiro loan ( Fulham) ; Sherwin Seedorf (Motherwell) ; Ryan Giles loan ( Shrewsbury) ; Kourtney Hause (Aston Villa)
New signings: Jesus Vallejo loan ( Real Madrid) ;
note to finish
“As with most things it is possible players could extend their contracts without making it public notice and other players may be out of contract that are not listed here. That is just the nature of modern football things are constantly changing. Players are continually coming in and going out.”
Expect big bucks to be spent
It promises to be another record breaking spending spree for clubs in the top fight this transfer window. It could topple over the billion pound mark again as owners of clubs don’t want to get relegated from the money maker that is the Premier League. This will mean they will splash the cash once again to get the best players in to keep them in the league. New signings could be made at any time, as long as the transfer window is open
It’s good to see news faces at your club
When the first big signings start to happen then expect the merry-go-round to begin and players to start moving.
It’s going to be a fascinating and fast moving transfer window as every club looks to improve and get stronger.
The problem most of these clubs will find is, where are these top players suddenly going to appear from. Most of these clubs will be competing for the signature of the same players and this could drive the price up even higher.
Whoever your club signs it’s always good to see a new face at your club, someone who wants to be there and pull on your club shirt. I don’t know about you but I always look forward to the football transfer window with anticipation as to who will be going and who will end up playing where?
Deadline day when the transfer window closes for the season is fast approaching, it is going to be exciting time for all clubs involved.
