Burnley could be in for a squad overhaul this summer following their relegation to the EFL Championship and one star player, who is out of contract and expected to leave on a free transfer, is now attracting interest from Aston Villa as well as Everton.

Another club expected to be in for a busy few months are Leeds United whose first priority might be keeping a hold of their current stars before looking to recruit new ones.

Barcelona are monitoring one of their fan favourites and the player, valued at £30m, reportedly wants to play for the Spanish side while Newcastle United are also thought to be eyeing up another Elland Road favourite.

Eddie Howe’s Magpies are set to spend big but appear to have cooled their interest in a Watford striker, opening the door for Everton and Crystal Palace to make a move.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are reportedly set to “reignite” their interest in a £30m valued Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder while West Ham are lining up a move for a Nottingham Forest defender if the Championship side fail to gain promotion in Sunday’s play-off final.

Elsewhere, a Manchester United loanee will be returning to Old Trafford and not making a permanent switch to the club he spent the second half of last season at.

Finally, Chelsea have identified a number of summer targets to solve their defensive problems while Arsenal are monitoring several strikers.
