The summer transfer window is nearly open and clubs are already thinking about what players they want to sign. 

While it’s always difficult to predict what will happen during a transfer window, a lot of high-profile players could be on the move this summer.

We’ve taken a look at 10 players that will probably switch clubs in big-money moves during the summer transfer window.

Note: we’ve not included the likes of Karim Benzema, Lionel Messi, N’Golo Kante and Jude Bellingham as those deals are complete or close to completion.

Mike Maignan

Since joining AC Milan from Lille in the summer of 2021, Maignan has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Milan are hoping to renew his contract but reports in reports in Italy claim that he has been left unhappy with their decision to sack directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara and is now considering his future at the club.

Chelsea are in the market for a shot-stopper to replace current No.1 Kepa Arrizabalaga and L’Equipe claim they have initiated contact with Milan over the possibility of signing the France international.

While the Serie A side insist he isn’t for sale, Todd Boehly’s Chelsea have been prepared to pay over the odds to get what they want.

Kim Min-jae

Min-jae was a relatively unknown player when he joined Napoli from Fenerbahce last summer but has since enjoyed a meteoric rise.

The South Korea international played an integral role in Napoli’s title win and was named Serie A’s best defender for the 2022/23 season.

He looks set to move on after one solitary season in Italy as he has a £42million release clause in his contract, which is active for a 15-day period in the summer window.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have identified the 26-year-old as their top defensive target but they will face competition from Newcastle United.

Harry Maguire

The most expensive centre-back of all time, Maguire has struggled to justify the £80million price tag during his four years at Manchester United.

He started just eight Premier League games in 2022/23 and would fall further down the pecking order if Min-jae moved to United.

Despite his struggles at Old Trafford, the 30-year-old continues to impress for England and has plenty of admirers at other Premier League clubs.

The Daily Mail claim that Tottenham have made checks on Maguire’s situation while West Ham United and Aston Villa also hold an interest in the centre-back.

Declan Rice

Rice led West Ham to a historic victory over Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final but it looks set to be his final appearance for the club.

“We promised him he could go,” West Ham chairman David Sullivan told talkSPORT. “He set his heart on going. You can’t ask for a man who has committed more to us this season.

“In due course, he has to get on and we have to get a replacement – or several replacements.”

According to reports, he is Mikel Arteta’s top target for the summer and Arsenal will now table an opening bid of £90million.

Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also thought to be keeping tabs on the 24-year-old but the Gunners appear to be in pole position.

Moises Caicedo

Alexis Mac Allister has already joined Liverpool in a £35million deal and Caicedo looks set to follow him through the Brighton exit door this summer.

The 21-year-old, who joined Brighton in a £4.5million deal in January 2021, has gone from strength to strength at the AMEX Stadium and is regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the world.

He was the subject of a £70million bid from Arsenal in the January transfer window and the Gunners are expected to reignite their pursuit this summer.

But they will face competition from Chelsea as manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly a big fan of the Ecuador international.

Mason Mount

Mount joined Chelsea’s academy at the age of six and looked set to spend his entire career at Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea will probably cash in on their No.19 as his contract is due to expire in the summer of 2024 and talks over a new deal have stalled.

While Arsenal, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have shown an interest in the England international, Manchester United now appear to be leading the race for his signature.

The Telegraph claim that the midfielder has already agreed personal terms with United, who are preparing a £55million offer.

Bernardo Silva

Bernardo has been in outstanding form for Manchester City this season, playing a key role in their bid for a historic treble.

“I have been lucky to coach some very good players for Barca and Bayern,” Pep Guardiola said. “He is one of the best players I ever trained in my life, ever. He is something special as a football player.”

But Guardiola might not work with him for much longer as talkSPORT claim that the Portugal international wants to leave the Etihad this summer in search of a fresh challenge.

Barcelona have a long-standing interest in Silva and reports in France claim that Paris Saint-Germain view him as the ideal replacement for Lionel Messi.


The most expensive player of all-time, Neymar joined Paris Saint Germain in a €222million deal in 2017 but has endured mixed fortunes in France.

PSG, who have already bid farewell to Lionel Messi, are planning fot a major rebuild this summer and are reportedly willing to listen to offers for the Brazil international.

While Barcelona and Real Madrid have both distanced themselves from a potential deal, he could move to the Premier League.

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has reportedly met PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to discuss a transfer for the 31-year-old while Manchester United and Newcastle United have also been credited with interest.

Harry Kane

Kane became Tottenham’s all-time top goalscorer in 2022/23 but is reportedly ready to leave north London in pursuit of silverware.

While Spurs insist that they have no intention of selling him, this summer will be their last chance to cash in on a striker whose contract expires in 2024.

According to the Guardian, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is obsessed with the 29-year-old and they plan to make an early bid for him.

Real Madrid are also targeting Kane as Carlo Ancelotti has selected him as the best direct replacement for the departing Karim Benzema.

Victor Osimhen

A lot of clubs are in the market for a striker this summer and Osimhen is currently one of the most sought-after players in Europe.

The Nigeria international scored 26 goals in 32 Serie A appearances in 2022/23, helping Napoli win their first Scudetto since 1989/90.

His impressive performances in Italy have reportedly caught the attention of Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

While Napoli have set a €150million asking price to ward off potential suitors, manager Luciano Spalletti has already left the club and they’ll struggle to keep hold of their talisman.
