With the European season coming into the final straight, talk has already turned to how the big clubs intend to splash their cash over the summer.
Our friends at Football Whispers have rounded-up all the latest transfer rumours from across the continent.
Top of the list of transfer targets for Manchester United this summer is a left-back. Jose Mourinho's men have been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose in the past but they are now plotting a move for Monaco's Benjamin Mendy. The Champions League semi-finalists value the Frenchman around the £60million mark.
Paris Saint-Germain are to rival both Milan clubs for the signature of Wolfsburg's Ricardo Rodriguez. The Swiss International, who was a one-time target for Arsenal, reportedly have a €18.5million release clause.
Atletico Madrid have added Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to their list of potential targets this summer. The 30-year-old joins Chelsea's Diego Costa and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez on Diego Simeone's radar as he looks to find a man to play ahead of Antoine Griezmann.
Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes has been offered to rivals Real Madrid. The 23-year-old has had a disappointing season €35million move from Valencia in the summer.
Walter Sabatini, who was recently appointed director of sport at Inter Milan, has included Luis Enrique in his list of candidates as a replacement for Stefano Pioli who was sacked. Sabatini is reported to be keen to contact the Barça coach and open talks as soon as possible.
Inter Milan are ready to double the salary Mauricio Pochettino earns at Tottenham Hotspur to make him their new head coach.
Chelsea, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are in a rush to secure the signing of highly rated 17-year-old Hamburg attacker Jann-Fiete Arp. The German scored 26 goals in 21 games for the youth side and carried his form over into the European Under-17 Championships. He scored back-to-back hat-tricks against Bosnia and Ireland recently.
