WHILE Euro 2020 rumbled on, football clubs across Europe kicked-off their pre-season campaigns.
With all eyes on the European Championship, club bosses have quietly been conducting their work behind the scenes.
And, as well as working on fitness and tactics, transfer dealings will be one of the top priorities.
But who needs what and who could be going where?
We take a look at six players likely to move to the Premier League this summer.
THE midfielder was a standout in Italy’s brilliant Euros and has attracted lots of Premier League interest – from Arsenal in particular.
The Gunners have been searching for a box-to-box No 6 since the departure of Aaron Ramsey in summer 2019 and think they have found it in Locatelli.
The 23-year-old’s eye for a goal and ability to drive forward on the ball has also sparked the interest of Juventus.
THE teenager stunned the world with his emphatic displays.
He played way beyond his 18 years and already looks ready to set the biggest stages alight.
Barcelona are desperate to keep hold of him but with their money problems they could be forced to sell one of their prized assets.
Manchester City and Chelsea have the cash to splash and could take a punt on a midfielder who will only get better.

Club: RB Leipzig
ONE of the surprises of the tournament, Forsberg led Sweden to the last 16 with four goals and some impressive displays.
The attacker, 29, only scored nine goals in all competitions for his club last season.
And with Leipzig known as one of Europe’s selling clubs, it would not be a shock to see him move to England in the coming weeks – especially as he is available at a relatively affordable price.
Club: Real Sociedad
AFTER being rated the best young player in LaLiga last season with 17 league goals, Isak continued that fine form with his country.
The 21-year-old may not have scored at the Euros but his pace and ability to leave defenders for dead has left top sides purring.
Led the line in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and looks to be Sweden’s new striking superstar.
THE Dane, 21, is now one of the hottest young properties in Europe, with Tottenham and Liverpool both mulling over bids.
His two goals at the Euros – including a free-kick stunner against England in the semis – are the tip of the iceberg.
His flexibility to play across the midfield and front line, plus trickery on the ball, make him well-suited to the top flight.
PLENTY of clubs wanted him before the Euros – and that will not have changed after a fine tournament.
Manchester United are among Torres' suitors.
A ball-playing centre-back who would work well with Harry Maguire, the 24-year-old is the perfect modern-day defender.
His release clause would be the only stumbling block to a deal but Torres has shown this summer that he could be worth every penny.
