Pep Guardiola has made a new striker a top priority as he targets another Premier League title and ending the club's wait for Champions League glory.
On Friday morning, the Daily Mail dropped a bombshell report stating that the Premier League champions will confirm the signing of the Aston Villa star after he's finished his duties at Euro 2020 with England.
Their report also adds that Pep Guardiola's side will continue to pursue Tottenham's Harry Kane after adding Grealish to what is an already supremely talented roster.
Considering they will enter the 2021/22 season as reigning champions of Europe, it already highlights that the Blues have a squad packed to the rafters with talent. But adding flashes of quality to some areas of the squad is what Tuchel feels is needed to take them to that next level and challenge the likes of Manchester City for the title.
It is understood that landing a right-sided defender, a central midfielder and a striker are at the very top of Tuchel's wish list, whilst it is still most certainly possible that the Blues could also look to land another center-back after the departure of Fikayo Tomori on a permanent basis.
There's been a lot of talks recently about how most clubs will struggle to complete any big-money deals in this summer's transfer market - Paris Saint-Germain aren't 'most clubs'.
The Ligue 1 outfit is seemingly undeterred by the impact coronavirus has had on their finances and are pushing forward with their transfer business as though they're funded by an entire state - very weird, we know.
It remains to be seen whether Mauricio Pochettino will still be at the helm in a couple of months' time, but regardless of who is in the hot seat, you can guarantee plenty of big-name arrivals this summer.
After what seemed like a long fight with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, Barcelona couldn't keep up with the competition, and succumbed to the pressure, ending the 2020-21 La Liga season in the third position. They had vast chances to jump ahead and climb to the top, but the Blaugrana slipped up every time and ruined their prospects.
Now, with the Spanish top-flight finally over, Barca will be heading for a thrilling summer, especially following the return of their new-old president, Joan Laporta. Despite the club's debt, if they are prepared to contend seriously for major titles in the next campaign, new faces are predicted in the dressing room.
This summer represents another opportunity to provide Mikel Arteta with the signings to take Arsenal forward.
It has been a season to forget for the Gunners, with the prospect of no European football next term potentially making it even harder to establish themselves as a top-four side again.
But there is cause for optimism after Arteta and technical director Edu achieved their mission in the January transfer window by trimming the first-team squad.
Manchester United has now gone four years without winning a trophy.
And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is technically making progress in terms of form and consistency, the pressure will ramp up for the 2021/22 season - because Manchester United is a club that expects to win things.
United is tipped to go big in the transfer market this summer following a second-place Premier League finish and Champions League qualification, with the club ready to spend up to £150m (net!) in order to really challenge on all fronts.
They look to finally have struck a deal for long-term target Jadon Sancho, and as of now, their priorities have turned elsewhere to strengthen weak areas of the squad. Here's how they could line up in 2021/22.
