The 2018-19 Premier League season may be over, but the fun is just beginning as clubs start to ramp up their plans for what promises to be a huge summer transfer window.

Manchester City and Liverpool ensured the title race went to the final day of the season - with Pep Guardiola's side the eventual champions - and both clubs will surely be active as they bid to maintain their dominance over the chasing pack.

Chelsea finished the season well, but things could get more difficult though as the Blues face a two-window Fifa transfer ban as well as the prospect of losing Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to rebuild a bloated Manchester United squad lacking quality after a sixth-placed finish. Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, is basking in the glow of reaching the Champions League Final with Tottenham, though the coach has warned Spurs that he could leave unless they make signings.

Arsenal missed out on a top-four finish, but their summer plans will largely depend on whether the Gunners beat Chelsea in the Europa League Final to qualify for the Champions League.
