The transfer window could be a long summer this time around.

Clubs across Europe will be eager to bolster their ranks in the coming months but the financial implications of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic may hinder business, while the forthcoming European Championship could delay potential deals.

Harry Kane’s future will undoubtedly be at the top of the agenda, with gossip on the England skipper’s destination if he leaves Tottenham Hotspur already in full swing.

Manchester City have been linked with the striker as they look to replace Barcelona-bound Sergio Aguero, while Leeds-born Erling Haaland is another big-name striker who could be on his way to the Premier League this summer, though Whites fans will be hoping it’s anywhere but Man United.

For Sheffield United, of course, there will undoubtedly need to be something of a revamp to Slavisa Jokanovic’s squad. Bouncing back to the Premier League will be the main aim and the Blades must decide whether they need to cash in on any of their big-name stars this summer to finance that, with goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and midfield playmaker Sander Berge the two most obvious assets if sales were needed.

Keeping hold of the duo, however, would be a huge bonus for Jokanovic.

Will he, won’t he sagas don’t suit anyone but with the Euros coming up, transfers are unlikely to be completed quickly.

Here’s some of the big deals that could rumble throughout the summer.
