Transfers Of Every Premier League Club So Far: Confirmed, Rumoured And Departed

There have already been some big moves in the market
14:15, 19 Jul 2021

Euro 2020 is over, and unless you are passionate about Olympic football, all eyes are on the start of the domestic season.

The kick-off of the Premier League season can’t come soon enough for us fans, although plenty of managers will want to recruit additional players before then.

Let’s take a look at the transfers that have already been confirmed, and where the 20 top flight clubs still have work to do…



Can you believe it has now been 17 years since Arsenal last won the league? Sure, their four FA Cup triumphs in the last eight seasons would be the envy of most English clubs, but the bread and butter for the 13-time champions has to be the league title.

They’re some way off that, but a return to European football would be a step in the right direction.


Nuno Tavares - Benfica, undisclosed


Dani Ceballos - end of loan

Mat Ryan - end of loan

Martin Odegaard - end of loan

David Luiz - contract expired

Mark McGuinness - Cardiff, undisclosed

Trae Coyle - FC Lausanne-Sport, undisclosed

Zech Medkley - KV Oostende, undisclosed

Dinos Mavropanos - Stuttgart, loan

Daniel Ballard - Millwall, loan

Ben Sheaf - Coventry, undisclosed

Matt Smith - Doncaster, loan

Matteo Guendouzi - Marseille, loan

William Saliba - Marseille, loan


Ben White is reportedly on the verge signing for the Gunners in a £50m switch from Brighton, with Mikel Arteta clearly keen to add some quality in defence.


The likes of James Maddison, Tammy Abraham and Manuel Locatelli have all been linked with a move to the Emirates, as the 2020 FA Cup winners look to improve on their eighth-place finish. Long-term servants Hector Bellerin and Granit Xhaka could be on their way out, with Aston Villa said to be keen on Emile Smith Rowe. 



After narrowly surviving in their first season back in the Premier League, Aston Villa kicked on last season and finished just four points shy of the top half.

Jack Grealish proved his worth in an England shirt over the summer, and Dean Smith will be desperate to keep hold of his star man amid reported interested from Manchester City. Emi Buendia was brought in from Norwich in a club-record transfer and will be expected to provide plenty of assists as the Villains look to take the next step in their evolution.


Emi Buendia - Norwich, £38m

Ashley Young - Inter, free



Ahmed Elmohamady - contract expired

Tom Heaton - Manchester United, free

Neil Taylor - contract expired

Bjorn Engels - Royal Antwerp, undisclosed


The potential signing of Smith Rowe would add to what is already an excellent core of young British talent at Villa Park. With Abraham and Harry Winks also being linked with a Midlands move, a European challenge may not be so far-fetched.



Brentford are yet to make a move in the summer transfer window, with the Championship play-off winners keen finally making that step up to the big time. They’ve come close on so many occasions, and will be desperate to extend their Premier League stay beyond this one campaign.

Ivan Toney’s ability to convert his 30 Championship goals into Premier League strikes may be key to their hopes.




Aaron Pressley - AFC Wimbledon, loan

Henrik Dalsgaard - FC Midtjylland, free transfer

Luke Daniels - contract expired

Emiliano Marcondes - contract expired

Jan Mlakar - Hadjuk Split, undisclosed


With just Kristoffer Ajer and Frank Onyeka linked in recent times, it is refreshing to see the Bees avoid the panic buying strategy that many newly-promoted outfits adopt. They’ll need to bring in fresh talent, but Thomas Frank appears to be putting his faith in the players that achieved promotion last season.



Injuries really did put paid to any hopes of the Seagulls kicking on last season, although Graham Potter will have been encouraged by some of the football on display in the south coast.


Jeremy Sarmiento - Benfica, undisclosed

Enock Mwepu - Red Bull Salzburg, undisclosed

Kjell Scherpen - Ajax, undisclosed 


Davy Propper - PSV Eindhoven, undisclosed

Andrew Crofts - contract expired

Jose Izquierdo - contract expired

Teddy Jenks - Aberdeen, loan

Alex Cochrane - Hearts, loan

Ryan Longman - Hull, loan

Viktor Gyokeres - Coventry, undisclosed

Mat Ryan - Real Sociedad, undisclosed

Carl Rushworth - Walsall, loan


Liverpool’s Nat Phillips is being rumoured as the man to replace the outgoing Ben White, with Potter wanting to make the move from perennial relegation fighters to mid table security.



It is difficult to imagine Burnley without Sean Dyche at the helm, and the Turf Moor hierarchy will be relying on his ability to avoid another relegation battle.

They were never in any serious trouble last season, but their 39 points was their lowest tally since returning to the Premier League.

They’ll be glad of crowds returning to Turf Moor, with their absence clearly felt last season.


Nathan Collins - Stoke, undisclosed 


Robbie Brady - contract expired

Ryan Cooney - Morecambe, free

Ben Gibson - Norwich, undisclosed

Joel Mumbongo - Accrington, loan

Jimmy Dunne - QPR, undisclosed


A new back-up goalkeeper is on the shopping list, with Wayne Hennessey and Jiri Pavlenka previously linked with a switch to Lancashire.



The Champions League winners scraped a top four finish last season but will be confident of putting together a title challenge under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel.

A new striker is top of their shopping list, with Olivier Giroud completing his move to AC Milan.




Fikayo Tomori - AC Milan, £25m

Willy Caballero - contract expired


Izzy Brown - contract expired

Jamal Blackman - contract expired

Pierre Ekwah Elimby - West Ham, undisclosed

Danilo Pantic - Partizan Belgrade, undisclosed

Nathan Baxter - Hull, loan

Billy Gilmour - Norwich City, loan

Victor Moses - Spartak Moscow, undisclosed

Juan Castillo - Birmingham, loan

Olivier Giroud - AC Milan, undisclosed

Marc Guehi - Crystal Palace, undisclosed


It is no secret that Chelsea are keen on signing a centre forward, with the very best in the game being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge. The likes of Robert Lewandowski, Erling Haaland, Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku have all been linked, with England hero Declan Rice a possible addition from London rivals West Ham.



Crystal Palace are quietly going about their business in convincing fashion, with Michael Olise and Marc Guehi being drafted in to boost their squad with several experienced names leaving on free transfers.

Patrick Vieira will not be done yet, with his mission of turning Palace from also-rans into European challengers a difficult one.


Michael Olise - Reading, undisclosed

Jacob Montes - Georgetown University

Marc Guehi - Chelsea, undisclosed


Gary Cahill - contract expired

Scott Dann - contract expired

Nathaniel Clyne - contract expired

Wayne Hennessey - contract expired

James McCarthy - contract expired

Mamadou Sakho - contract expired

Patrick van Aanholt - contract expired

Mamadou Sakho - contract expired

Connor Wickham - contract expired

Sion Spence - Bristol Rovers, loan



A summer of turmoil at Goodison Park has seen one Champions League winning manager replaced with another, with former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez making the controversial move to replace Carlo Ancelotti.

For all of last season’s early promise, a 10th place finish was not good enough given the money spent in recent years.

Top seven will be the minimum requirement, with the blue half of Merseyside desperate for a top four push.




Theo Walcott - Southampton, free

Callum Connolly - Blackpool, free


Josh Bowler - Everton to Blackpool, free

Joshua King - contract expired

Yannick Bolasie - contract expired

Muhamed Besic - contract expired

Robin Olsen - end of loan

Dennis Adeniran - contract expired

Matthew Pennington - contract expired

Con Ouzounidis - contract expired

Bobby Carroll - contract expired


Benitez is clearly keen to bolster his wide numbers, with Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray expected to sign in the coming days. Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be licking his lips at the thought of better service into the box.

Asmir Begovic is also on the verge of signing as back up to England stopper Jordan Pickford, with Benitez evidently relying on Premier League experience.


The wide men being linked with moves to Goodison Park don’t stop there, with Burnley’s Dwight McNeil and Leon Bailey of Bayern Leverkusen also rumoured to be on Farhad Moshiri’s wish list.



Winning their final four games of the season saw Leeds manage a superb ninth spot, and Marcelo Bielsa will have higher ambitions this time around. Junior Firpo adds defensive quality from Barcelona, and whatever happens at Elland Road this season, it’s going to be fun.


Jack Harrison - Man City, undisclosed

Junior Firpo - Barcelona, £13m


Ryan Edmondson - Fleetwood, loan

Gaetano Berardi - contract expired

Pablo Hernandez - contract expired

Ouasim Bouy - contract expired

Barry Douglas - contract expired

Cole Gibbon - contract expired

Niklas Haugland - contract expired

Eunan O'Kane - contract expired

Matthew Turner - contract expired

Oliver Casey - Blackpool, undisclosed

Alfie McAlmont - Morecambe, loan

Ezgjan Alioski - contract expired

Laurens De Bock - Sportvereniging Zulte Waregem, loan

Kiko Casilla - Elche, loan


Noni Madueke continues to be linked from PSV, although keeping their core of players from last season together will be key to their hopes.



For the second season running, Leicester missed out on Champions League football in the final game, and Brendan Rodgers knows that his next step is to make that leap.

Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare add to an already exciting attacking line up, while the experience of Ryan Bertrand will be welcomed.



Patson Daka - RB Salzburg, £23m

Boubakary Soumare - Lille, £17m

Ryan Bertrand - Southampton, free


Wes Morgan - retired

Christian Fuchs - contract expired

Matthew James - contract expired

Admiral Muskwe - Luton, undisclosed


After his loan spell at Liverpool, Ozan Kabak is being linked with a quick return to the Premier League with the Foxes reportedly keen. Ryan Christie could follow his former manager from Celtic to the King Power, with Domenico Berardi also eyeing up a move to English football.



After romping to their fifth Premier League title in 10 years, Manchester City fell at the final hurdle in their quest to finally be crowned kings of Europe as Chelsea clinched their second Champions League crown.

They remain the team to beat in England, although with Sergio Aguero leaving for Barcelona, who will take over in leading the line at the Etihad?




Sergio Aguero - Barcelona, free

Eric Garcia - Barcelona, free

Jack Harrison - Leeds, undisclosed

Daniel Grimshaw - Blackpool, free

Taylor Harwood-Bellis - Anderlecht, loan

James Trafford - Accrington, loan

Gavin Bazunu - Portsmouth, loan

Lewis Fiorini - Lincoln, loan

Alexander Robertson - Ross County, loan

Callum Doyle - Sunderland, loan

Lukas Nmecha - Wolfsburg, undisclosed


Pep Guardiola appears to have given his scouts the summer off, with Harry Kane and Jack Grealish continually linked with a move to Manchester. Kane is already the Betfred favourite to finish the season as top goalscorer, and if he signs for free-flowing City, along with Grealish, he will take some stopping.




Tom Heaton - Aston Villa, free


Tahith Chong - Birmingham, loan

Joel Pereira - contract expired

Sergio Romero - contract expired

Nathan Bishop - Mansfield, loan

Reece Devine - St Johnstone, loan


More than a rumour, Jadon Sancho’s move to Old Trafford is all but confirmed, and adds to what is already a terrifying forward line. He’ll want to quickly put his England penalty heartache behind him, and a flying start to life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will help in that regard.



The Raphael Varane rumours refuse to go away, with the Real Madrid man continually mentioned in Stretford End conversations, while Kieran Trippier, Pau Torres and Eduardo Camavinga have also been linked. 



A 12th-place finish was more than respectable for Steve Bruce’s men, given that they were toying with the threat of relegation earlier in the campaign.

Conceding goals was a serious problem at St. James’ Park, and defensive reinforcements will be required if they are to avoid similar issues.




Andy Carroll - contract expired

Henri Saivet - contract expired

Christian Atsu - contract expired

Lewis Cass - Port Vale, loan


Bruce is all too aware of his defensive problems, and enquiries regarding Mario Lemina and Boubacar Kamara suggest that he is looking to add protection to his back four. Joe Willock’s successful loan spell could be turned into a permanent one, but the Toon Army look some way off from their former glory days of the 1990s.



Norwich made an immediate return to the top flight after dropping out two seasons ago with a measly 21 points, and Daniel Farke has been one of the busier managers in terms of signings in a bid to make more of a fight of it this time around.

The loss of Buendia to Aston Villa is a blow to their chances, but the Canaries have recruited plenty of Premier League experience so far.


Angus Gunn - Southampton, undisclosed

Milot Rashica - Werder Bremen, £9.4m

Kenny Coker - Southend, undisclosed

Ben Gibson - Burnley, undisclosed

Dimitris Giannoulis - PAOK, undisclosed

Pierre Lees-Melou - Nice, £3.5m

Billy Gilmour - Chelsea, loan



Emi Buendia - Aston Villa, £38m

Marco Stiepermann - contract terminated

Orjan Nyland - released

Alexander Tettey - released

Moritz Leitner - contract terminated

Josh Martin - MK Dons, loan

Daniel Barden - Livingston, loan

Mario Vrancic - Stoke, free

Josip Drmic - HNK Rijeka, loan


Norwich have reportedly joined Brentford in the hunt to sign Celtic centre back Ajer, and will need to be smarter in defence if they are to improve on the 75 goals conceded in the 2019/20 campaign.



After a hugely impressive start to last season, the wheels fell off at Southampton once again and Ralph Hasenhüttl will have been relieved to see Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United register such disappointing points tallies.

They are a difficult club in terms of predicting their fortunes, and their lack of activity so far makes this season no different.


Theo Walcott - Everton, free

Romain Perraud - Stade Brest, undisclosed


Ryan Bertrand - Leicester, free

Josh Sims - contract expired

Kayne Ramsay - Crewe Alexandra, loan

Angus Gunn - Norwich, undisclosed


With just two permanent signings to boast of so far, Southampton will want to get a move on in the transfer market, although a swap deal involving Lemina and Newcastle’s Isaac Hayden appears to be their only current move. 



A disappointing season saw Spurs finish below West Ham in seventh, and with no Champions League on offer, could this be the summer that Kane calls time on his stay in London?

Man City are circling, and his departure could prove to be a catastrophic blow to the ambitions of Daniel Levy and co.




Paulo Gazzaniga - contract expired

Danny Rose - Watford, free transfer

Kazaiah Sterling - contract expired

Juan Foyth - Villarreal, undisclosed



The exit of Kane would come with a significant financial boost, similar to that of Gareth Bale back in 2013. Spurs went wild in the transfer market after his £85m switch to Real Madrid, and may do something similar if Kane does leave. The likes of Max Aarons, Danny Ings and Jannik Vestergaard have already been linked.



Much like Norwich, Watford booked their return to the top flight at the first time of asking and have been busy so far as they bid to stay there.

Danny Rose and Joshua King add required Premier League experience, and Xisco Munoz will fancy his chances of re-establishing the Hornets as top flight mainstays.


Danny Rose - Tottenham, free transfer

Imran Louza - Nantes, undisclosed

Ashley Fletcher - Middlesbrough, free transfer

Emmanuel Dennis - Club Brugge, undisclosed

Kwadwo Baah - Rochdale, undisclosed

Mattie Pollock - Grimsby, undisclosed

Peter Etebo - Stoke, loan

Joshua King - Unattached

Dapo Mebude - Unattached


Ben Wilmot - Stoke, undisclosed

Achraf Lazaar - contract expired

Carlos Sanchez - contract expired

Jerome Sinclair - contract expired

Mamadou M'Baye - contract expired


Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles would be a great signing, although talks of a switch to Vicarage Road have cooled of late. They’ve been busy already, so we perhaps shouldn’t expect too much.



David Moyes rolled back the years last season as his masterminded a sixth-placed finish for the Hammers. In fact, they were well in the hunt for the top four and only missed out due to Liverpool and Chelsea’s late season form.


Pierre Ekwah Elimby - Chelsea, undisclosed

Thierry Nevers - Reading, undisclosed

Armstrong Oko-Flex - Celtic, free


Felipe Anderson - Lazio, undisclosed

Fabian Balbuena - released

Sean Adarkwa - released

Olatunji Akinola - released

Samuel Caiger - released

Alfie Lewis - released

Joshua Okotcha - released

Joseph Anang - Stevenage, loan


Can they repeat last season’s heroics? Giovanni Simeone continues to be linked with a move, while Ukraine hero Roman Yaremchuk could join his compatriot Andriy Yarmolenko in London.



Change is in the air at Wolves, with Nuno Espírito Santo leaving the Midlands to try and steady the ship at Spurs.

After consecutive seventh-placed finishes, last season’s 13th spot would have come as a disappointment. Can Bruno Lage take them back into Europe?


Jose Sa - Olympiacos, undisclosed

Rayan Ait-Nouri - Angers, undisclosed

Yerson Mosquera - Atletico Nacional, undisclosed

Louie Moulden - Man City, free

Francisco Trincao - Barcelona, loan



Rui Patricio - Roma, undisclosed

Sadou Diallo - released

Cyriaque Mayounga - released

Hong Wan - released

Sadou Diallo - Forest Green, free


With five players in and five players out, expect Wolves to pick up where they left off last season. A mid table finish would likely be welcomed, especially given that Dominik Livakovic appears to be the only name of note linked with a move to the Molineux.
