Another Big Summer

The summer transfer window may be yet to open, but the rumor mill is already spinning.

Officially, clubs are able to buy and sell from June 9 but some deals are already done, with Bernardo Silva set to join Manchester City for £43.6 million (about $55.8 million).

Here, Newsweek looks at the latest rumors on who could be going where and who's staying put:

Manchester United's hope of signing Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann got a boost after the Frenchman told the La Liga club Tuesday that he wants to leave this summer, according to Cadena Cope. Griezmann, 26, is expected to cost Jose Mourinho's team a world-record sum should he join.

Reports have also linked Mourinho with a move for Paris Saint-Germain's Blaise Matuidi, and the French midfielder said PSG has made him an offer to stay but he doesn't know whether he will take it, according to The Independent.

After the Arsenal board reportedly told Arsene Wenger to be more assertive in the transfer market when he signed a new two-year contract Tuesday, the club is being linked with a handful of players.

The London side has struck a deal with Belgian club Eupen for 19-year-old Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru worth £6.8 million (about $8.7 million), according to the Daily Mail. Wenger is also keen on Riyad Mahrez after the Algerian forward told Leicester City he wanted to leave, reported the Daily Mirror, and he has his eye on AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca and Monaco's 21-year-old midfielder Thomas Lemar.

While Diego Costa was the striker at Chelsea linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge all season, it is Michy Batshuayi who could be heading for the exit. The Belgian forward was a clear second choice to Costa at the Premier League champion this year and he is interested in a loan move to West Ham to get first-team football, according to the Evening Standard.

After Asmir Begovic left the club Tuesday for Bournemouth, Chelsea is looking to bring in PSG's Alphonse Areola as his replacement and reserve goalkeeper to Thibaut Courtois, according to The Sun.

Chelsea is expected to confirm another exit in Dominic Solanke, the 19-year-old forward, who will join Liverpool for £3 million (about $3.85 million), said the BBC. The deal will be official on July 1.

In defense, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool is looking to sign from fellow Premier League clubs. The Daily Mirror reported the Anfield club is after center-back Virgil van Dijk, 25, who is valued at around £50 million ($64 million), while The Sun said Liverpool will also look to bring Gael Clichy to Merseyside after he was released by Manchester City.
