Regardless of prestigious international tournaments set be played in both Europe and South America this summer, much of the attention of football fans will be based around the transfer market.
With English teams in particular set to be busy in their search to recruit new players, there will be some major football news in upcoming months as deals get finalised and stars move clubs.
The Premier League sides are as rich as at any point in history and as such extortionate fees are set to be splurged on star names.
With speculation already rife, here are five big transfers that could happen this summer.Alexandre Lacazette - Lyon to Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham are widely expected to sign a new centre forward to offer support to Harry Kane, especially given that the North London club are set to feature in the Champions League next season.
Alexandre Lacazette is a man in demand and Lyon have already turned down a sizeable offer from West Ham for his services.
Spurs are being linked with a move for the France international in a deal that would surely suit all parties.Paul Pogba - Juventus to Chelsea
Antonio Conte has a job on his hands to revitalise Chelsea and the Italian is expected to raid Serie A for potential new faces for the Blues.
The current Azzurri boss was the man to sign Paul Pogba for Juventus and has a close bond with the French midfield dynamo.
With Chelsea already being linked with the former Man United star, Pogba moving to Stamford Bridge could well on the cards.Alvaro Morata - Juventus to Arsenal
The lack of a potent striker has held Arsenal back from winning major silverware in recent years, with Arsene Wenger expected to remedy the issue this summer.
The Gunners are being linked with a move for Alvaro Morata, who continues to excel for both club and country.
Arsenal would be advised to make their move before Euro 2016, as the former Real Madrid star’s valuation could sky rocket if and when he makes an impression for Spain.Mario Gotze - Bayern Munich to Liverpool
With game time at Bayern Munich something of a commodity in recent times, Mario Gotze is being linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena this summer.
The World Cup winning midfielder could well be interested in a switch to Liverpool given the presence of former boss Jurgen Klopp.
A bumper deal for Gotze could well be the shot in the arm the Reds need before next season.Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Free agent to Manchester United
Manchester United have landed Jose Mourinho and a host of prominent players are expected to follow him to Old Trafford.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a free agent after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired, with potential for the Swedish star to move to United and be reunited with former Inter boss Mourinho.
With United in need of striking reinforcements and short of born winners, a switch for the veteran attacker makes sense.
