We're entering into key moments on the transfer market for Premier League clubs, the final month is always the busiest and also the official games are set to start - it can take one match to change a strategy, an idea or… to proceed with a new signing!

League winners Manchester City will be busy with new centre back as Josko Gvardiol deal remains at final stages, waiting to seal the agreement with RB Leipzig as soon as possible despite big problems after leak 10 days ago between the two club.

Gvardiol wants the move and the deal remains on. Meanwhile, Man City are working to bring in new winger to replace Riyad Mahrez; this is a priority for the club.

Manchester United are completing Rasmus Hojlund deal after Onana and Mount, it's almost done; then focus will be on new defensive midfielder with Sofyan Amrabat among options in the list, already in talks on player side waiting for an official bid.

But selling Fred and Donny van de Beek (could be a loan) will be crucial to make it happen. Then the arrival of new centre back depends on Maguire future.

Meanwhile Arsenal want new backup goalkeeper in case Matt Turner leaves to join Nottingham Forest, David Raya is top target but Gunners could also add one more player in attacking position in case they find the right opportunity.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea called recently to be informed about Mohammed Kudus deal, he's one to watch for sure as he's also top of Brighton list in case Caicedo leaves. Of course he's different kind of player, but Brighton would love this addition in case they get big money from Moises.

Chelsea will keep pushing on Caicedo and will also add one more offensive player to their list, waiting to sell Hakim Ziyech and Romelu Lukaku.

Kudus and Michael Olise are both appreciated, up to the club now; new goalkeeper is also a possibility being discussed internally. Axel Disasi replaces Wesley Fofana on €45m deal from Monaco.

Newcastle are very happy with Barnes and Tonali but one more addition is being discussed internally; while Liverpool's focus remains on new midfielders. Fabinho and Henderson left the club, they want new signings and Romeo Lavia is the priority target.

But Liverpool are not done, one more midfielder could join... and new centre-back is also a possibility only in case Klopp finds a good opportunity, the "right player".

There will be lot of movements in Premier League also with Aston Villa looking for new fullback on the market, Everton are keen on signing a new striker after the El Bilal Touré deal collapsed and West Ham are working on multiple deals after getting big money from Declan Rice.

They had bids rejected for Gallagher, Maguire and more players but new signings are coming soon.

Tottenham will also do their best to give Ange Postecoglou what he needs: August will be a crucial month for the Harry Kane deal with Bayern Munich pushing to make it happen, obviously new striker would be needed in that case.

Meanwhile, Spurs keep working on both Tapsoba and Micky Van de Ven waiting to pick the best centre back for Postecoglou. Strap yourselves in, it could be a very busy month!
