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.

Lockdown restrictions in England lifted further - but caution is key

Man United appear to be getting closer to finally bringing Jadon Sancho back to England from Dortmund. Kieran Trippier, Raphael Varane, Cristian Romero and Saul Niguez are also on the wishlist, but Bayern Munich may end up landing the latter... or Chelsea, or maybe Manchester City!

As for Arsenal, it promises to be a big summer with plenty of ins and outs. After missing out on Emi Buendia to Premier League rivals Aston Villa, the Gunners have been linked with Wolves’ Ruben Neves, Brighton’s Yves Bissouma and Real Sociedad forward Alexander Isak.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are seemingly trying to sign Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini after already adding Ibrahima Konate to their squad, while Barcelona are eyeing a shock summer swoop for Raheem Sterling.

Chelsea ready to pay £155m for HaalandMan United make first Sancho bidTottenham in talks with FonsecaArsenal eye up Tyler AdamsChelsea match PSG’s Hakimi bidLive updates1623321780Fonseca to talks with Tottenham

Tottenham are in talks with former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca over their vacant head-coach position, Standard Sport can confirm.

Fonseca is said to be the preferred choice of incoming general manager Fabio Paratici, who is set to take a leading role in all football decisions at the club, and is discussing a three-year deal with Spurs in what would effectively be a job swap with Jose Mourinho.

The 48-year-old resigned as Roma manager after two years in charge and was replaced by his compatriot Mourinho for next season following his sacking by Tottenham on April 19.

Spurs have turned to the former Shakhtar Donetsk manager after a succession of frustrations in their search for a permanent successor to Mourinho, including the breakdown in talks with former Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte last week.

Tottenham also held talks with their former manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was reluctant to force his way out of current club Paris Saint-Germain, Ajax coach Erik ten Hag and Hansi Flick, who is set to take charge of the German national team after Euro 2020.

Jorge Mas, the co-owner of Major League Soccer team Inter Miami, said he is confident Lionel Messi will join them if he decides to leave Barcelona.

Mas said he and fellow co-owner David Beckham were determined to bring world class talent to the Miami club, who are struggling in 11th spot in the MLS Eastern Conference.

Messi's contract is due to expire at the end of this month but Barcelona President Joan Laporta said talks over a new contract were progressing well.

"I am optimistic Messi will play in an Inter Miami shirt because I think it will complete the legacy of the greatest player in our generation and will meet with the ambitions of the owners of Inter Miami to build a world-class team," Mas told the Miami Herald.

"David and I have been working really hard, we have aspirations of bringing the best players here and Messi is a generational player, arguably the best player of all time," Mas added.
