Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City on Saturday perhaps underlined just why many are expecting Pep Guardiola’s men to plunge into the transfer market for some defensive reinforcements this summer.

Premier League champions Liverpool aren’t expected to conduct too much business, but the Reds continue to be linked with a move for the Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara as Jurgen Klopp looks to fine tune his team.
Thiago may not be the only star swapping Germany for England as Jadon Sancho continues to be linked with Manchester United, while Chelsea have already secured their big Bundesliga signing in the form of Timo Werner.
