Despite international football taking a leading role at the moment, the transfer rumour mill is still churning.
Tottenham are reportedly set to sign Djed Spence to follow up on the addition of Ivan Perisic, while north London rivals Arsenal are believed to be working on a move for Leicester City star Youri Tielemans while Gabriel Jesus has agreed personal terms on a move to the Emirates.
Manchester United, meanwhile, are understood to want to bring Christian Eriksen to Old Trafford as part of Erik Ten Hag’s rebuild.
Thomas Tuchel has called for attacking signings at Chelsea after a difficult season for his frontline and, with Todd Boehly now in place, could make big a statement. Indeed, they are said to be favourites to land Ousmane Dembele, although PSG and Barcelona remain in the mix.
For Gareth Bale, the world awaits his next move. Wrexham have thrown their hat into the ring.

Liverpool have turned down Bayern Munich’s opening £25million bid for Sadio Mane, according to widespread reports.
The German giants were guaranteeing £21m, with a further £4m in performance-related add-ons such as winning the Champions League.
Liverpool are looking for much more than that.
Mou and Matic Pt.3
Jose Mourinho and Nemanja Matic are set for a second reunion with Roma snapping up the midfielder on a free transfer.
The Croatian, who was signed by Mourinho for Manchester United, is out of contract at Old Trafford in the summer and is now set for Serie A.

Arsenal, Forest and Spurs were all linked but the report claims it is Antonio Conte’s side closest to wrapping up a deal.
ICYMI: Bellingham price tag revealed
The Athletic claim Jude Bellingham could cost as much as £80m.
While Borussia Dortmund are not keen to sell the England star after watching Erling Haaland join Manchester city, the likes of Liverpool have been linked with a move.
Famous for being able to turn a profit on a player, it seems the summer of 2023 is far more likely for him to make a move.

Bale hinted Wales’ triumph will force him to put any thoughts about a possible retirement on hold.
Bale told Sky Sports with a smile “for a little bit”, adding: “It’s the greatest result in the history of Welsh football.

The Blues are now considered frontrunners for his signature.
De Jong price tag revealed
Barcelona are demanding £75million from Manchester United for Frenkie De Jong, reports the Express.
The problem? United are unwilling to go above £62m.
Erik ten Hag has made the Dutchman his key transfer target and is pushing the club to seal the deal.
Bale to Wrexham?
Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney has jokingly hinted at a move for Gareth Bale after Wales qualified for the World Cup.
The 32-year-old will now likely want a new club to keep fit ahead of the November tournament, and a tree transfer to Cardiff has been mooted.
But McElhenney may have another idea up his sleeve, according to a tweet posted soon after the final whistle.
Maybe we will see Bale rock up at the Racecourse Ground come August.
