Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd prepare bid, Chelsea talks, Arsenal make contact | Football | Sport

Manchester City have put themselves firmly in the driving seat to clinch this season’s Premier League title after seeing off Tottenham on Tuesday evening. And the Citizens will be crowned champions if they match Arsenal’s result on the final day of the campaign this weekend. But the two title rivals will soon turn their attentions to this summer’s transfer window, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool also under pressure to bring in fresh faces.

If Arsenal fall short for the second consecutive campaign, manager Mikel Arteta will want to land someone who can turn the tide in his side’s favour come the new campaign. But City boss Pep Guardiola won’t be willing to stand still in the north west.

It remains to be seen whether Erik ten Hag will still be in the hotseat at Old Trafford by the time the summer transfer window opens, while Mauricio Pochettino’s future is also unclear at Chelsea. But both clubs will be building behind the scenes as their transfer teams get to work.

Arne Slot will have a big task filling the shoes of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and could do with some more firepower at both ends of the pitch following the Reds’ capitulation towards the end of the campaign.
