Paper Round’s view: Ten Hag wants to kick-start the revolution with a centre-back. No surprise, really, given their defensive failings this season, and though Eric Bailly may well move on, it would be interesting to see what a couple of additions means for Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof. No doubt Ten Hag wants names that would make the starting XI, or at the very least provide a competition that boosts the squad’s standards.
City’s top two targets
Paper Round’s view: You cannot stand still in the Premier League, and already City have made the potentially decisive move by signing Haaland. They can further strengthen their credentials, and European ambitions, with the right transfers elsewhere, and it would be safe to say Cucurella and Phillips would both be shrewd squad additions, if they do end up joining.
Winks for sale
Paper Round’s view: It appeared Winks had a role to play under Antonio Conte, but that was short-lived and now he must choose his next move wisely. At 26, he can still harbour ambitions of breaking back into the England squad, although that could be a big ask and would require a decent run of form.
Chelsea eye Martinez
Paper Round’s view: We await the articles stating how much Chelsea are going to be given to spend this summer, and it really is a key window for the club in what is a new era at Stamford Bridge. It will set the tone, and you would expect Tuchel will be backed heavily to make the desired changes.
