Premier League confirm when summer transfer window opens and closes



The Premier League have now confirmed the dates for next season’s transfer windows. Clubs can officially sign players from June 14.

The summer transfer window opens on June 14 and will remain open for just over 11 weeks, ending on September 1 at 23:00 BST.

The clubs are already busy finalizing the deals in advance, with Liverpool in talks to sign Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton, but formalities cannot be finalized until mid-June.

Liverpool have been busy beyond the start of the current season as a fixed-term contract for Arthur was confirmed on deadline day and six players, including Sepp van den Berg, were delayed on loan.

The £37million signing of Cody Gakpo was also completed in January, but Jurgen Klopp will hope to settle club affairs as soon as possible this time around. Beyond a potential deal for Mac Allister, Liverpool are hoping to sign two more midfielders, with Mason Mount and Ryan Gravenberch being the main targets.

A strengthening of the defensive lines is also expected, while any other changes could be dictated by players wishing to move elsewhere – for example, if Caoimhin Kelleher asks for a move.


Liverpool incoming transfer boss makes Victor Osimhen admission at Anfield


Liverpool are set to appoint Jörg Schmadtke as their new sporting director, but he comes to Anfield after falling out with one of the most wanted players in world football.

New Liverpool sporting director Joerg Schmadtke arrives at Anfield with only one regret: the sale of Neapolitan sensation Victor Osimhen.

The former Hannover 96, FC Cologne and Wolfsburg boss is set to replace Julian Ward on Merseyside. He will be responsible for overseeing the Reds’ activities in the transfer market this summer.

Schmadtke certainly has a task ahead of him as he attempts to rebuild a side that have crumbled this season and will be out of the Champions League draw this summer. In somewhat worrying news ahead of his arrival, the 59-year-old has already had a falling out with one of the most wanted leaders in world football, Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

The pair’s path crossed whilst they were at Bundesliga giants Wolfsburg. The Nigerian was not quite the ruthless striker that he has developed into currently but a youngster attempting to feel his way into the game.

He had begun his professional career with the German side, going 16 games without a goal before being allowed to join Belgian club Charleroi on a season-long loan. There, Osimhen flourished with 20 goals in all competitions during the 2018/19 campaign.

A permanent move was then quickly on the cards as Charleroi activated their £3m option to sign him. Osimhen would be on the move once more just weeks later as Lille swooped with a £19m deal.

Reflecting on the decision to let the striker leave, Schmadtke admitted he has regret over cashing in so soon. Speaking to Kicker, he said: “It wasn’t a good move, in hindsight. When I came, he [Osimhen] was limping and running in circles.

“I was told that the strikers we had weren’t good enough. The most important lesson is that you have to be patient with some transfers.”

Since then, Osimhen has gone from strength to strength. An 18-goal haul in his debut season with Lille convinced Napoli to spend an eye-watering €60m (£58.9m) on him.

He has continued to score regularly with 56 goals in 99 outings for the Italian side. 28 of those have come this season and helped Napoli to end their long wait for a Serie A crown. 

Interest continues to flow – led by Premier League duo Manchester United and Chelsea, who are looking to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season. However, Napoli manager Aurelio De Laurentiis has insisted that Osimhen will stay at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Speaking to Rai Sport earlier this month, he said: “I’m not going to sell Victor Osimhen this summer – no way!”

Osimhen still has two years left on his contract with Napoli and could add to Schmadtke’s regret if he moves to the Premier League and potentially scores against the Reds in the near future.
