Welcome to Standard Sport’s rolling coverage of the summer transfer window as the speculation ramps up.

The window officially opened in July after the completion of the delayed 2019-2020 Premier League season. Clubs will now be busy tweaking their squads ahead of the new campaign, with the deadline pushed back until October 5.

Arsenal have added Willian and are closing in on the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes, while Chelsea are set to add Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell to a squad already boasting new arrivals Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.


Manchester United continue to work on a deal with Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho – a saga which looks set to run and run – and Tottenham have completed deals Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart. However, the biggest story is currently coming out of Barcelona after Lionel Messi has requested to leave.
