The Premier League season is edging closer towards the finish line but that’s not to say the interest will fall away.
If anything, the action off the pitch will go up a notch on July 27 when the summer transfer window officially opens for ten weeks.
The coronavirus pandemic has hindered many plans for the summer but there is still expected to be movement across the Premier League and world football.
We look at the future of two Premier League stars who seem destined for different shores, the latest of Jadon Sancho, and welcome Leeds United to the round-up.
Here are the latest transfer rumours in relation to the Premier League.
Lampard wants Chelsea keeper Arrizabalaga gone
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard reportedly wants goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga sold as soon as possible.
Football Insider reports that the Stamford Bridge boss has made him mind up to sell the stopper, a stance which has continued in light of the 5-3 defeat against champions Liverpool.
Arrizabalaga is the world’s most expensive goalkeeper after Chelsea paid Athletic Bilbao his £71.6m release clause in 2018.
Arrizabalaga has struggled for form this season and Lampard has switched between him and Willy Caballero in goal.

Manchester United have been handed a boost in their ongoing pursuit of Jadon Sancho.
Borussia Dortmund are yet to have their valuation of the young England star met but he remains United’s top target this summer.
It is reported that Dortmund are now looking at potential replacements for the attacker should he leave for Old Trafford.
Dortmund are said to have earmarked Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica as a target and are ready to make a move should Sancho leave.
United are said to be willing to pay up to £80m to get their man, although they value him more at £50m due to the uncertain transfer market after the coronavirus.
