Premier League transfer window opens ahead of 2024-25 season

The Premier League transfer window opened on Friday as clubs look to add to their squads ahead of the 2024-25 season.

Clubs will be able to sign players throughout June, July and August, even while international sides face off in the European Championship and the Copa América. The window is scheduled to shut on Aug. 30.

Although the Premier League transfer window has begun, Europe’s other major leagues do not open theirs until July 1, meaning it is unlikely many top deals will be announced until next month.

Last summer saw a number of Premier League clubs spend significant sums, with Arsenal signing Declan Rice and Kai Havertz for a combined £170 million ($217m), Chelsea landing Moisés Caicedo for £115m, and Manchester City making Josko Gvardiol the second most expensive defender of all time, paying £77m to secure his services.

This time round, there are a number of Premier League players subject to speculation over a change of club.

Manchester United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS team will embark on their first transfer window at Old Trafford. ESPN reported in April the club would consider offers in excess of £70 million for Marcus Rashford, although they are not actively seeking to offload the forward.

However, sources have told ESPN that United are looking to offload ageing midfielder Casemiro in order to ease their wage bill.

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s future at Liverpool is subject to intense speculation with his contract having just one year left to run.

City are in a similar predicament with star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who has one year left to run on his deal and admitted last week he would be open to a move to the Saudi Pro League.

Elsewhere, Conor Gallagher, Ivan Toney, Jarrad Branthwaite and Michael Olise, might be lining up in a new strip next season, having all attracted strong interest from other clubs within the Premier League.
