Ilkay Gundogan set for Barcelona switch

Ilkay Gundogan has been cut to 2/7 to sign for Barcelona, with the Man City captain reportedly close to agreeing a switch to the La Liga champions upon the expiry of his contract at the Etihad this summer.

This means Germany international Gundogan is set to make his final appearance for City in tomorrow's Champions League final, with Pep Guardiola's side bidding to complete a stunning treble against Inter in Istanbul.

Gundogan has enjoyed a fantastic individual campaign for City, registering 18 goal contributions in all competitions, including a brace in the FA Cup final against Man Utd.

Thursday 8th June:

Liverpool complete signing of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton

Liverpool have completed the signing of midfielder Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton on a long-term deal.

The 24-year-old Argentine World Cup winner will add dynamism and class to a Liverpool midfield which appeared a glaringly weak area last season, with the Reds' latest recruit having netted 10 Premier League goals for the Seagulls last term.

The next couple of months look primed to be busy for Liverpool in the transfer market as the Anfield club bid to return improve on last season's disappointing fifth-placed finish in the new campaign.

Harry Kane odds-on to join Real Madrid

It promises to be the biggest transfer story of the summer and the three-horse race appears to have been whittled down to two, at least for the time being.

Real Madrid surely need an immediate replacement for Karim Benzema, and Harry Kane - at least for the short term - looks a perfect fit. But there are so many factors to consider it's near-impossible to tell where the 29-year-old will be playing his football next season.

Does he continue to chase the Premier League goal record? Does he go to Manchester United for the better - albeit by no means guaranteed - chance to win trophies? Does he go to Spain where he's unlikely to ever play against his old club and can be almost given a collection of winners' medals?

The latest reports suggest the latter is the most likely, with Real Madrid favourites for the first time at 4/5.

Declan Rice to stay at West Ham?

It was either the perfect send-off, or such a good night it's persuaded Declan Rice to stay on for at least another season at the London Stadium.

Punters suggest the latter, with Rice being backed in from 12/1 to 9/2 on the back of West Ham's Europa Conference League win on Wednesday night, though Arsenal remain hot favourites at 4/9.

Wednesday 7th June:

Real Madrid agree Jude Bellingham deal

14-time Champions League winners Real Madrid have agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund in the region of £88.5m for 19-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Birmingham City academy graduate Bellingham, who has already been capped 24 times by England, is widely regarded as one of the top young midfielders in Europe having registered 14 goal contributions for Dortmund in all competitions this season.

An all-action and box-to-box player with a range of attributes, Bellingham will join a Real Madrid squad already stacked with world-class midfielders including Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Aurelien Tchouameni.

Betting suspended on Lionel Messi

Betting has been suspended on Lionel Messi's next club, with David Beckham's MLS franchise Inter Miami reportedly close to securing the services of the Argentine World Cup winner.

The 35-year-old has being courted by a number of clubs in recent weeks, most prominently Barcelona and Al-Hilal, after it was confirmed he would be departing PSG after two seasons at the Parc des Princes.

It appears Messi's mind is now set on Inter Miami, however, with the football legend the latest world star set to turn out in MLS following the likes of Beckham himself, Thierry Henry and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Tuesday 6th June:

Tottenham new favourites for Harry Maguire

Reports that Tottenham are set to make a move for Harry Maguire has sparked a flurry of bets on the England man moving to North London, with Tottenham now 7/2.

Steve Freeth said: "It's been one-way traffic since Ange Postecoglou was announced as Tottenham manager with every single bet on the Harry Maguire Club on 3rd September 2023 market being for Spurs."

Read the full article here.

Chelsea favourites for Moises Caicedo

Chelsea have made no secret of their desire to bolster their midfield ranks, and a midfield pairing of Enzo Fernandez and either of Moises Caicedo and Manuel Ugarte would be a fearsome prospect, but with Ugarte closing in on a move to PSG, the Blues appear to be redoubling their efforts for Brighton's Caicedo.

He's the new favourite in the market at 11/8, and you can read the full article on the Ecuadorian here.

Monday 5th June:

A closer look at Manchester United target Kim-Min jae

Reports suggest South Korean centre-back Kim Min-jae could be set for a move from Serie A champions Napoli to Manchester United.

The 26-year-old defender enjoyed an outstanding debut campaign for Napoli after arriving from Fenerbahce last summer, with the Italian side winning their first Scudetto in 33 years.

Kim, who was named Serie A Defender of the Year, is 6ft 3in tall and dominant aerially, with Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag perhaps viewing the South Korean as an ideal long-term partner for Argentine Lisandro Martinez at the back.

The centre-back is currently priced at 2/5 to join Man United, and 9/2 to stay at Napoli.

Read our full in-depth look at the Manchester United transfer target here

Betting suspended on Alexis Mac Allister

Betting has been suspended on Alexis Mac Allister's next club, with the Argentine midfielder reportedly agreeing a contract to join Liverpool from Brighton.

The 24-year-old could be the first of a few midfield arrivals for the Reds this summer, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp seeking to upgrade an ageing engine room which appeared off the pace last season.

Registering 10 goals for Brighton in the Premier League last term, Mac Allister will add quality to Liverpool's midfield as well as the energy and dynamism required to fit into Klopp's system.

Thursday 1st June:

Real Madrid shorten to sign Harry Kane

Real Madrid have come in to 3/1 to sign Tottenham talisman Harry Kane amid reports Karim Benzema is set to depart Los Blancos.

35-year-old Benzema, the latest recipient of the prestigious Ballon d'Or award, has become increasingly linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League in recent days.

Should Benzema complete an exit from the Bernabeu, the 14-time Champions League winners will be in the market for a new number one striker to replace him, with England captain Harry Kane certainly fitting the bill.

Spurs are currently favourites at 10/11 to be Kane's club on 1st September, however, with the 29-year-old now just 47 goals behind Alan Shearer's all-time Premier League record after notching an outstanding 30 last season.

Kane could yet leave Spurs and continue his career in the Premier League, with Manchester United (7/4) and Chelsea (14/1) also in the hunt for his signature.

Betting suspended on Mason Mount

Money has steadily come in over the last week or so for Mason Mount moving to Manchester United as reports have more closely linked the Chelsea man with a move to Old Trafford, and betting has now been suspended.

Reports on Thursday evening suggested that Mount has agreed personal terms with United and a move now appears imminent.

Wednesday 31st May:

Chelsea favourites for Manuel Ugarte

PSG looked to be the front-runners for Manuel Ugarte's signature, but it appears Chelsea have made it a very tight two-horse race.

The Blues have shortened to 4/5 with PSG 10/11.

Harry Kane odds-on to stay at Spurs

Following news that Tottenham look set to demand around £100m for Harry Kane, we've made Spurs favourites once again at 10/11. 

The fee would surely price Manchester United out, leaving them to look elsewhere, with Kane presumably leaving on a free at the end of next season.

But United's top priority is a new striker with Kane believes to be the club's top target, and they can be backed to sign Kane at 5/4.

PSG 8/13 to sign Manuel Ugarte

Chelsea could be about to say goodbye to most of their midfield in the summer, and it looks like they'll miss out on a potential reinforcement in Manuel Ugarte, with the Uruguayan seemingly close to a move to PSG.

The midfielder is arguably the best ball-winner in Europe and would add plenty of mettle to the French champions' midfield.

Manuel Ugarte club on 3rd September 2023.

Man Utd in to 10/11 favourites to sign Harry Kane

Manchester United are in to 10/11 favourites to sign England captain Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer.

Despite Spurs' dismal campaign which sees them currently placed eighth in the Premier League table and on the brink of missing out on any form of European football next term, 29-year-old Kane has still mustered up impressive individual numbers with 30 goals in all competitions so far.

With his Spurs contract set to expire next year, the North London side face losing their talisman on a free should they fail to tie him down to a new contract, with a number of top European clubs reportedly preparing a move.

Tottenham remain second favourites to be Kane's club on September 3rd at 6/4, with Real Madrid (8/1), Chelsea (8/1) and Bayern Munich (16/1) also in the reckoning.

Thursday 25th May:

Harvey Barnes to Newcastle?

Newcastle are 7/2 favourites to be Harvey Barnes' club on 3rd September, with the 25-year-old's current club Leicester City on the brink of relegation from the Premier League.

Despite the Foxes' woes, Barnes has had a productive season with 12 Premier League goals, and is a winger certainly capable of proving to be an asset for a number of top flight clubs. 

Dean Smith's side do still have a chance to retain their Premier League status ahead of a final day showdown with West Ham, and are currently priced at 4/1 to keep Barnes ahead of next season.

Aston Villa (6/1), West Ham (6/1) and Tottenham (7/1) are also in the reckoning as Barnes faces a defining summer.

Man Utd Evens favourites to sign Mason Mount

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United have emerged as Evens favourites to sign in demand Chelsea and England midfielder Mason Mount this summer.

24-year-old Mount, whose contract at Stamford Bridge runs out next year, has been the subject of widespread speculation following a disappointing season with Chelsea.

Man Utd currently appear the frontrunners to prise Mount away from London to add renewed dynamism to their midfield, with the Blues priced at 4/1 to retain his services.

Liverpool (4/1) and Arsenal (5/1) have also been credited with an interest in the attacking midfielder, who has been capped 36 times by England.

Man City cut to 3/1 in race for Declan Rice

Premier League champions Manchester City have been cut to 3/1 to sign West Ham and England star Declan Rice this summer.

Although Mikel Arteta's Arsenal remain odds-on favourites at 4/6 to secure Rice's services ahead of next season, it appears Man City could now also be in the running as Pep Guardiola strives to bring an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title to the Etihad Stadium next term.

With the out-of-contract Ilkay Gundogan yet to commit his future to the club, and City seemingly having lost out to Real Madrid in the pursuit of Jude Bellingham, Guardiola may view Rice as an ideal new recruit in the engine room.

Man Utd in to 2/1 to sign Neymar

Manchester United have moved in from 7/1 to 2/1 to be BrazilIan icon Neymar's club come September 3rd.

Speculation surrounding Neymar's future at PSG has ramped up following fan protests outside his home demanding the 31-year-old leave the club, but the Parisians remain favourites at 4/5 to retain his services beyond the summer.

Erik ten Hag's Man United have emerged as the frontrunners for his signature should Neymar depart PSG, but any potential transfer move may well depend on the outcome of ongoing takeover talks at Old Trafford.

Chelsea (6/1), Newcastle (10/1) and Barcelona (25/1) are also in the odds reckoning, whilst a move to any Saudi Arabian team is currently priced at 20/1.

Monday 22nd May:

Mason Mount to Arsenal?

Arsenal are the latest club reportedly interested in Mount's signature, prompting a cut in their odds of 20/1 into 7/2. Of course, there are political considerations to consider; would Mount, who's spent most of his life at Chelsea, willingly swap West London for North?

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “It looks to be a big summer for Arsenal on the recruitment front, especially in the midfield department, a position that Mikel Arteta knows well and Mount to be plying his trade at the Emirates next season has been all the rage over the last few days, especially the last 24 hours.  

“Previously we’ve seen support for Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich to sign the Englishman, and while the expected arrival of Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea muddies the water even further with Mount entering his final 12 months at the Bridge.

“Declan Rice is a longstanding link and he’s currently 8/13 to be an Arsenal player on September 3rd."

Ilkay Gundogan odds-on to extend Man City stay

Amidst continued uncertainty surrounding his future at the Etihad Stadium, out-of-contract Manchester City skipper Ilkay Gundogan is now odds-on at 8/15 to remain at the Premier League champions ahead of the new season. 

32-year-old Gundogan, who has been one of City's standout players in recent weeks as Pep Guardiola's charges sealed their third consecutive Premier League title win, has left it late to commit his future to the club having arrived from Borussia Dortmund in 2016.

La Liga winners Barcelona (13/8) have been touted as a potential alternative destination for the midfield playmaker, with former City coach Mikel Arteta also reported to be keen to bring the German international to Arsenal (6/1).

It goes without saying that the all-conquering Man City would be a difficult club to leave at present given their dominance both domestically and in Europe, and with manager Guardiola having voiced his keenness to keep Gundogan, the Citizens currently appear best placed to have the German at their disposal next year.

Lionel Messi back in to odds-on for Barcelona return

Lionel Messi has moved back in to odds-on at 4/6 to complete a sensational return to Barcelona this summer.

In a transfer saga that is bound to rage on in the coming weeks, the Argentine World Cup winner has also been widely linked with a move further afield to Al-Hilal (1/1) in Saudi Arabia, who are reported to have offered the 35-year-old icon a money-spinning contract.

The latest movement in the market currently favours a return to Barcelona, however, with arguably the world's greatest ever footballer perhaps feeling he has unfinished business at the club where he won a staggering 34 major honours across 21 seasons between 2004 and 2021.

In-form Ilkay Gundogan odds-on for Barcelona move

Manchester City skipper Ilkay Gundogan is odds-on at 5/6 to join Xavi's Barcelona this summer, with the German international's contract set to expire at the Etihad at the end of this season.

Midfield playmaker Gundogan has been in sterling form for treble-chasing City of late, notching four goals in his last two Premier League games, and manager Pep Guardiola has publicly stated his desire to keep the 32-year-old beyond this campaign. City are 11/10 to be Gundogan's club on 3rd September.

Arsenal are 8/1 to sign Gundogan, with former City coach Mikel Arteta rumoured to be keen to raid his old club once more after bringing in Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko last summer, with German giants Bayern Munich (14/1) and PSG (16/1) also amongst the betting.

Sadio Mane shortens to join Chelsea

Ex-Liverpool icon Sadio Mane is in to 9/4 to make a shock summer switch to Chelsea after enduring a difficult first season at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Senegalese forward Mane traded Anfield for Bavaria last summer after six decorated seasons with Jurgen Klopp's side, but has experienced problems on and off the field with Bayern this term.

Registering an underwhelming 12 goals in all competitions in his debut campaign in Germany, and having recently been suspended by the club following an altercation with teammate Serge Gnabry, Mane's future at the Bundesliga leaders has been cast into doubt.

Free-spending Premier League strugglers Chelsea are currently rated as Mane's most likely destination should he leave Bayern at 9/4, with PSG, Napoli and Real Madrid all priced at 8/1.

The 31-year-old is 2/1 to remain a Bayern Munich player come September.

Declan Rice odds-on to join Arsenal

While Arsenal have been favourites to secure Declan Rice's signature for some time, the Gunners have been cut to 8/13 to have the West Ham man on their books on 3rd September 2023.

West Ham have managed to repel rival clubs from snatching away their star man, but are believed to have told Rice he can leave for a Champions League club should the money be right.

Arsenal, for the first time since 2016/17, will be one such club, though asking price may remain a stumbling block. The Hammers are thought to be holding out for a fee in excess of £100m, and with another year left to run on Rice's contract with the option of a second, the club aren't under huge pressure to sell. 

Thursday 11th May:

James Maddison backed for Newcastle switch

Leicester City midfield maestro James Maddison is in to 2/1 to be a Newcastle player come September 3rd.

Currently embroiled in a relegation dogfight with Leicester, with the Foxes languishing in 18th place in the Premier League with just three matches remaining, 26-year-old Maddison may feel his time at the King Power Stadium has reached an end.

Signed from Norwich City for around £20m in 2018, Maddison has been a shining light in a Leicester team which has consistently competed at the top end of the Premier League table in recent seasons, and was part of the side which claimed FA Cup glory in 2021.

Things have soured for the Foxes this season, however, and it is difficult to foresee a player of the calibre of Maddison plying his trade in the Championship next season should Leicester's relegation be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Although Eddie Howe's Champions League-chasers Newcastle appear to be leading the chase for Maddison's signature at present, other Premier League sides such as Spurs (7/2) and Liverpool (8/1) are also in the frame.

The goalscoring midfielder is priced at 7/2 to continue his journey with Leicester beyond this season.

Wednesday 10th May:

Victor Osimhen to Chelsea?

Free-spending Chelsea are now 7/4 to be Nigerian Napoli scoring sensation Victor Osimhen's club on 3rd September 2023.

24-year-old Osimhen, who has notched 28 goals in all competitions for Napoli this season as Luciano Spalletti's side collected the club's first Scudetto since the days of Diego Maradona way back in 1990, may be viewed as the ideal solution to Chelsea's current striking crisis.

With the Blues having endured a torrid season in the Premier League, languishing down in 11th place in the table, a lack of a recognised and consistent striker has become increasingly conspicuous as the campaign has wore on.

Chelsea will not be the only English club to be in the market for a high-profile striker in the summer, with Erik ten Hag's Manchester United given odds of 11/2 to land Osimhen.

No doubt eager to defend their Scudetto title and make a further dent in the Champions League next season, Napoli will be desperate to retain the services of Osimhen, with the Italian side priced at 1/1 to keep their star striker.

Lionel Messi odds-on to join Al-Hilal

Lionel Messi is now 8/13 to be an Al-Hilal player on 3rd September 2023, following reports the Saudi Pro League side are prepared to offer the Argentine a money-spinning contract to prise the 35-year-old to the Middle East.

The World Cup winner is out of contract with current club PSG this summer, and after a breakdown in relationship with the club's hierarchy, he is set for the exit door at the Parc des Princes this summer.

This has led to widespread speculation that the football legend would make a sensational return to former club Barcelona, at whom he won a record 34 trophies and seven Ballon d'Or awards over 21 years, but Saudi side Al-Hilal now appear to be the clear frontrunners for his signature.

Argentine World Cup winner Lionel Messi is in to 6/5 to be an Al Hilal player come September 3rd.

PSG star Messi has become increasingly linked with a return to former club Barcelona following the decision of the Paris club to suspend him following an unauthorised visit to Saudi Arabia, but reports are now suggesting he could be set to move further afield.

A switch to the Saudi Pro League would see Messi rekindle his rivalry with old nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese icon currently plying his trade at Al-Nassr.

View latest Lionel Messi Club on 03/09/2023 odds here

Harry Maguire to leave Man Utd?

After another difficult season at Old Trafford for Manchester United captain Harry Maguire, the 30-year-old England international could be heading for the exit door this summer.

Maguire's game time at United has become more and more limited as this season has progressed, to the extent that both Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw have been preferred at the heart of the Red Devils' defence following the injuries suffered by first choice pairing Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.

There is yet to be any credible suggestions the ex-Leicester City man will be moving on at the end of this campaign, however, with Man United currently favourites at 7/4 to be Maguire's next club on 3rd September 2023.

Should United take the decision to allow Maguire to leave, there is likely to be a number of interested parties considering his level of Premier League and international experience.

Unai Emery's Aston Villa are currently second favourites for his signature at 4/1, with Eddie Howe's Newcastle United 6/1 and former club Leicester City priced at 9/1.

Neymar to leave PSG?

Following the news Lionel Messi will be departing PSG at the end of his contract this summer, reports suggest fellow superstar Neymar Jr could be next in line for the exit door at the Parc des Princes.

The relationship between the Brazil international and the Parisian club's hierarchy appears at an all-time low, with an angry group of PSG supporters pictured outside the forward's home demanding his departure.

As of yet Neymar himself has made no concrete indication he wishes to leave PSG, with the Ligue 1 leaders the favourites at 2/5 to be the South American's club on 3rd September 2023, but it is clear all is not well for the 30-year-old in Paris at present.

Should he decide to move on, Premier League pair Manchester United (6/1) and Chelsea (7/1) are currently the most fancied clubs to sign Neymar, whilst a sensational return to his old club Barcelona is given odds of 16/1.

James Ward-Prowse to leave Southampton?

With Premier League basement dwellers Southampton appearing destined to be relegated to the Championship, captain James Ward-Prowse's future appears uncertain.

The free-kick specialist, just one direct free kick goal away from breaking David Beckham's record total of 18 in the Premier League, is likely to attract a number of top flight suitors at the end of this campaign.

Eddie Howe's Newcastle United are currently favourites at 11/4 to be Ward-Prowse's club on 3rd September 2023, with Spurs (5/1), Aston Villa (6/1) and West Ham (8/1) all also backed to be amongst the reckoning for his signature.

The Saints skipper may yet decide to stay on at St Mary's and help guide the club back to the Premier League, however, with Southampton currently second-favourites at 3/1 to be Ward-Prowse come September 3rd.

Alexis Mac Allister odds-on for Liverpool switch

Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister is now in to 1/2 to be a Liverpool player on September 3rd 2023.

Following the news the Anfield club have pulled out of the race to sign long-term target Jude Bellingham, with the Dortmund star now set for a move to Real Madrid, Jurgen Klopp will now be considering alternatives to bolster his midfield and 24-year-old Mac Allister certainly fits the bill.

A standout player as Argentina lifted the World Cup in Qatar in December, Mac Allister has also shone domestically this season as Brighton's joint-top goalscorer in all competitions alongside Kaoru Mitoma with 10.

Technically adept and capable of controlling the tempo of matches in midfield, Mac Allister also has boundless energy which was evident during his breakout World Cup campaign with Argentina, with this dynamism likely to appeal to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp who is famed for his high intensity counter-pressing philosophy.

Real Madrid close in on Jude Bellingham

Spanish giants Real Madrid are closing in on a sensational move for coveted Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Reports suggest negotiations between Los Blancos and the Bundesliga club are at an advanced stage, with personal terms for the 19-year-old almost complete.

Bellingham, already capped 24 times by England, will join two of the other most promising young midfielders in world football in the form of Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni at the Santiago Bernabeu, with legendary playmakers Luka Modric and Toni Kroos coming towards the end of their careers.

The Birmingham City academy graduate will become just the sixth Englishman to represent Real Madrid should the transfer go through, following in the footsteps of the likes of Steve McManaman, David Beckham and Michael Owen.

Messi back to Barcelona?

Football icon Lionel Messi is in to 4/7 to make a dramatic return to Barcelona this summer after PSG disciplined the Argentine for an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia.

With Messi's relationship with the Parisian club now appearing increasingly fractious, his odds to make the move to the Saudi Pro League with Al Hilal Riyadh have also shortened to 5/2, in a switch which would see the 35-year-old compete against his old nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr.

The World Cup winner is priced at 6/1 to settle his differences with PSG and sign a new contract with the Ligue 1 leaders, whilst another move further afield to David Beckham-backed Inter Miami in the MLS is given odds of 8/1.

It has has already been announced that Brazilian Firmino will end his decorated eight-year association with Liverpool this summer, with Xavi's side the latest favourites for his signature at 5/4.

The signings of Messi and Firmino could help the La Liga champions elect make a greater dent in Europe next term, with Barcelona having last won the Champions League back in 2015.

Friday 28th April:

Joao Pedro agrees Brighton deal

Brighton have agreed a club-record deal to sign 21-year-old Brazilian forward Joao Pedro from Watford this summer.

Pedro, who has scored 11 Championship goals for the Hornets this season, will add competition in attack for Brighton next term alongside the likes of Danny Welbeck, Evan Ferguson and Deniz Undav.

A versatile attacker capable of both leading the line himself and playing in behind a striker, Pedro is a player with huge potential. The Brighton hierarchy may just view Pedro as a player with high resale value, especially under the auspices of manager Roberto De Zerbi who has a great knack for developing talent.

Pedro could be playing European football for Brighton next season, with the eighth-placed Seagulls still firmly in the hunt for a place in the Premier League's top seven with eight matches remaining.

Wednesday 26th April:

Mason Mount in shock Man Utd switch?

The race for in-demand Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount's signature this summer has taken a fresh twist, with Manchester United's odds to be the 24-year-old's club on the 3rd September coming in from 16/1 to just 3/1.

Out of contract at the end of next season, Mount has been widely linked with a move away from Chelsea having endured a disappointing campaign at Stamford Bridge this term.

Despite the movement in Man United's odds, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are the favourites at 11/8 to have Mount at their disposal on 3rd September, whilst Chelsea are priced at 9/4, with the club's bosses still keen to persuade their academy graduate to put pen to paper on a new contract in west London.

Tuesday 25th April:

Harry Kane to Chelsea?

He's sure to be one of the most talked-about players of the summer, and while his future remains up in the air, we've cut his price on being a Chelsea player on 3rd September from 20/1 to 6/1

There have been a number of controversial moves in the Premier League era - Sol Campbell joining Arsenal, Robin van Persie joining Manchester United, Ashley Cole joining Chelsea - and Harry Kane moving from North to West London would be right up there.

There are plenty of pros and cons for the move. Chelsea desperately need a striker, especially if they're to make another charge for the top four. Money shouldn't be an object, as long as the Blues can navigate the Premier League's financial rules, and Kane's contract only has a year to run. They also look set to employ Kane's former boss in Mauricio Pochettino.

The negatives are obvious; aside from Kane turning down immediate Champions League football with Manchester United or Bayern Munich, he'd be joining a huge rival which would undoubtedly tarnish his reputation at Tottenham if not destroy it completely.

Harry Kane: will he stay or will he go?

Another player whose contract is set to expire next summer, speculation surrounding Spurs talisman Harry Kane's future is starting to ramp up as the 29-year-old ponders a defining next career move.

Still inexplicably in search of his first major honour as a professional player, having spent his entire senior career at Spurs, many feel this summer could be the perfect time for one of Europe's deadliest strikers to move on to pastures new.

Still very much at the peak of his powers, behind only Erling Haaland in the Premier League scoring charts this season on 24 goals, England captain Kane will undoubtedly have plenty suitors in this summer's window.

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United are the current frontrunners for his signature should Kane decide to leave Spurs, with United now priced at 11/8 to be his club on 3rd September 2023.

Spurs remain favourites to be Kane's club come September 3rd, however, with odds of 6/5.

Mason Mount to remain at Chelsea?

Enduring a disappointing individual campaign in what has been a hectic year for Chelsea following American Todd Boehly's takeover of the club, Mason Mount has registered just three goals and two assists for the Blues in the Premier League this season.

England international Mount was a key figure under former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, playing a prominent role as the London club sealed their second Champions League title in 2021, but his progress at Stamford Bridge has undoubtedly stalled this term.

Despite reports Mason Mount looked destined to move on from Stamford Bridge this summer, Chelsea are 6/5 favourites to be the 24-year-old's club come 1st September.

With his contract at Chelsea running out next summer, the academy graduate may also be tempted to kickstart his career elsewhere, with Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool currently priced at 6/4 to be his club come September 3rd 2023.

Messi to return to Barca?

Almost two years on from his emotional exit from Barcelona, could the World Cup-winning Lionel Messi be set for a sensational return to Catalonia this summer?

Reports of this potential move are gathering momentum with the Argentine icon yet to declare his future with current club PSG, with his contract due to expire at the Ligue 1 leaders this summer.

Messi is currently odds-on at 8/11 to make the switch back to Barcelona, with a price of 7/4 to remain at the Parisiens.

Although Messi’s exploits at the World Cup in Qatar displayed his ability to continue to shine at the highest level of the European game, he has reportedly also attracted suitors from further afield in the form of Inter Miami (8/1) and Al Hilal Riyadh (12/1).

Roberto Firmino to swap Premier League for Serie A?

After eight memorable years at Anfield in which he was crowned both a Champions League winner and Premier League champion, Roberto Firmino will depart Liverpool at the end of his contract this summer.

Speculation is now starting to mount with regards to the Brazil international’s next club, with a move to Serie A appearing most likely at present.

Jose Mourinho’s Roma (2/1) are currently favourites for his signature, but they may face competition from Italian counterparts Napoli (4/1) and Inter Milan (6/1).

Alexis Mac Allister on the move?

Brighton face a summer battle to keep World Cup-winning midfielder Alexis Mac Allister on their books, with the 24-year-old reportedly hot on the radar of a host of Premier League clubs.

Mac Allister was one of Argentina’s key players as La Albiceleste sensationally claimed their first World Cup title since the days of the great Diego Maradona in 1986, with the former Boca Juniors playmaker a standout performer in the final victory against France.

The South American has also impressed for Brighton in the Premier League this term, registering eight goals so far, with his combination of impeccable technical quality and boundless energy likely to entice high-profile suitors elsewhere in England.

Liverpool to miss out on Jude Bellingham?

Reports suggest Liverpool are out of the running to prise in-demand teenager Jude Bellingham away from Borussia Dortmund this summer, with the Reds seemingly unable to meet the German side's £100m+ valuation for the England international.

By all accounts a long-term target of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who is likely keen to add fresh legs to an ageing midfield featuring the likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Thiago at the end of this term, Bellingham has enjoyed an outstanding campaign for Dortmund who currently trail Bayern Munich by just two points at the top of the Bundesliga.

Liverpool's absence from the inevitable bidding war for the ex-Birmingham City academy graduate sees Pep Guardiola's Manchester City (7/4) and La Liga giants Real Madrid (4/1) emerge as the major frontrunners for the 19-year-old's signature this summer.

Friday 31st March:

Victor Osimhen to Old Trafford?

Having fired 25 goals in 29 games in all competitions as Napoli have soared to the top of Serie A and through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Victor Osimhen has emerged as one of the most exciting strikers in European football.

As part of a deadly forward duo for Luciano Spalletti's men alongside Georgian sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, the 24-year-old Nigeria international is a complete striker who provides both an imposing focal point in attack and devastating threat on the counter-attack.

With Manchester United conspicuously lacking a top-class striker in their ranks at present, the Red Devils are currently priced at 11/2 to be Osimhen's club on September 3rd 2023.

Declan Rice to leave West Ham?

Ever since breaking onto the scene at West Ham back in 2017, Declan Rice has been regarded as one of the finest talents in English football.

Amassing 41 England caps to date, Rice has developed into an outstanding all-round midfielder for the Hammers under the stewardship of David Moyes.

With just one year remaining on his West Ham contract, the club's hierarchy may be inclined to cash in on their prized asset should a suitable offer arrive this summer.

As a potential future England captain, the 24-year-old won't come cheap, but that is unlikely to put off some of the biggest clubs in the country making a move for a player whose drive and enthusiasm would be welcome in many a dressing room.

Title-chasing Arsenal are currently the favourites at 6/4 to be Rice's club on September 3rd 2023.
