After a busy weekend in the Premier League, in which Chelsea made another major signing in Tiemoue Bakayoko, English clubs are set for more spending this week.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho prepares to negotiate with Real Madrid should the Spanish club return for goalkeeper David De Gea, while Tottenham could make its first big-name signing.

Chelsea is still looking to fill the giant hole left in its attack after missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United and Diego Costa's expected departure from Stamford Bridge. All that and more in Newsweek 's transfer round-up:

Mourinho has already gotten used to the constant links Real Madrid has to his Spanish goalkeeper at Manchester United David De Gea. But the Portuguese coach has prepared a plan in which his team can benefit from the sale of De Gea to the Bernabeu team by demanding German midfielder Toni Kroos as part of the deal, according to The Sun.

In north London, Tottenham Hotspur is trying to get its first business of the summer done as it looks to continue on its impressive campaigns over the past two seasons. Mauricio Pochettino's team, The Independent says, is aiming to bring in English midfielder Ross Barkley from Everton but has been unable to agree a fee so far, though the Goodison Park club is happy to sell.

Everton, meanwhile, may look to continue its spending this summer by signing Chelsea striker Loic Remy, according to The Metro. Southampton is also considering a bid for the 30-year-old French striker.

Chelsea is still desperately on the look out for a striker, and the Daily Mail warns this morning that Borussia Dortmund will only "wait for a few days" to receive bids for Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Antonio Conte's team is also considering bidding for Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero, Daily Star says.

Joe Hart is one Manchester City player heading for the exit this summer, although possibly only on loan again. The England goalkeeper is having a medical at West Ham on Monday, according to the BBC. West Ham is also continuing its pursuit of Stoke City's Marko Arnautovic, Sky Sports say, and will make a third bid this week.
