The summer transfer window is officially open and clubs across Europe are wasting no time sorting their business.

While Euro 2020 could see deals for top players delayed by a few weeks, the tournament also offers clubs and fans the chance to scout some exciting talent for next season.

Harry Kane is determined to move this summer, with Man City leading the race amid interest from Chelsea and Manchester United - and City are also chasing Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish. Tottenham, meanwhile, are drawing up targets, both for a new manager and players with new sport director Fabio Paratici soon starting.

Chelsea are keen to sign a striker as well as moving for wing-back Achraf Hakimi, though Kane looks unlikely and they have been knocked back by Romelu Lukaku, but they are stepping up their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund goal machine Erling Haaland, who is said to be interested in a move.

Antonio Conte says the Tottenham manager vacancy was not "convincing" enough a project to accept.

"Generally, I like the challenges and I’ve accepted many of them during my career," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Even the top clubs I coached were never the favourites when I arrived. However, if there’s something that doesn’t convince me I prefer not to accept regardless of the money.”

After his inclusion in England’s 26-man squad for the Euros, Ben White is attracting plenty of interest from big clubs in England and there looks set to be plenty of talk this summer about the Brighton defender potentially moving.

White is valued at £50million and, according to the Mirror, Arsenal have joined Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United in the race to sign the 23-year-old.

Well, well, well.

After we brought you the news that Chelsea were ready to step up their pursuit of Erling Haaland, the Telegraph add that the interest has been reciprocated.

1623262603Pearce: West Ham signings must be on the money

Stuart Pearce says West Ham know that they must get their recruitment spot on this summer if they are to continue their progression.

“But what I would say is that for David to put his name to a player, he’s got to be sure that that player is the right one to fit into our environment.

“It’s a very work-orientated environment at West Ham, our running stats have gone through the roof since David arrived.

“There’s an expectation that everyone pulls their weight. We should be excited by next season, it’ll be tougher.

“All your rivals that have underachieved, their eye is on getting better. If you think what you did this year will be good enough to sustain and improve you, you’ll be sadly mistaken.

“You’ve got to improve year on year just to stay level.”
