There could be a major transfer splurge in the coming days when the final whistle goes tonight at Wembley.
England will face Italy at 8pm with the Euro 2020 title on the line – a first for the Three Lions while the last time the Azzurri won the competition was back in 1968.
Regardless of the result, it has been a fact that the tournament has held back a number of transfers.
The market has been open for weeks now but clubs have been restricted by players on international duty across Europe with plenty on the verge of completing moves away.
So, who is primed to pack their bags after Euro 2020 this summer?
Jadon Sancho to Manchester United
A deal has been put in place for Sancho to complete a move to Old Trafford since 1 July after a £73m fee was agreed with Borussia Dortmund.
It means the 21-year-old will become the first signing at United this summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already looking at his next options.
Sancho was linked with a move to the Red Devils last year only for Dortmund to slap a £109m fee – a number United were not prepared to meet.
But the signing of the Camberwell-born ace earlier this month at such a discounted value is a major coup for the club.
Ben White to Arsenal
The Brighton defender has already agreed personal terms over a five-year contract with Arsenal.
And though a deal has yet to be finalised with the Seagulls, their £50m price-tag has been met and it is surely a matter of time before the Gunners strike an agreement.
Mikel Arteta has moved quickly to secure his top target to replace David Luiz and White would be a brilliant signing for the north London club.
United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton have all been interested in the England international.
Jack Grealish to Manchester City
After another fantastic season at Aston Villa, it was only a matter of time before one of the major clubs tried to prise Grealish away.
Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of the 25-year-old, who despite his limited time for England this summer has still lit up the tournament.
In a move that has been reported to be worth £88m, that would smash City's record transfer fee while they also have other moves planned.
The arrival of Grealish spells danger for the likes of Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Ferran Torres, who could see their game-time decreased.
Granit Xhaka to AS Roma
Jose Mourinho's arrival at AS Roma was a real statement of intent from the Serie A club, who have struggled for money over the Covid-stricken season.
But with The Special One in charge, they are already making big moves in the transfer window with Xhaka on the verge of signing.
Arsenal fans might be happy to see the Switzerland international go but, judging by his Euro 2020 performances, they might have changed their mind.
A deal worth £17.5m looks set to go ahead though the Gunners want a replacement in before confirming his departure with one man on the way…
Albert Sangi Lokonga to Arsenal
Arsenal are moving quickly to land their top targets this summer with Nuno Tavares already through the door and two more on the way.
White is one and Lokonga is the other after the Gunners agreed a deal worth around £17.5m – near the same figure they are ready to let Xhaka go for.
The 21-year-old was part of the Belgium squad during Euro 2020 after a fine season and Arsenal have beaten two Serie A clubs to his signing.
Lokonga only wanted to sign for Arteta's side in a major signal that they can still attract players despite being out of Europe.
Harry Kane to City
The Tottenham striker is expected to continue his search for a new club when the Euros are after despite Daniel Levy's plea.
City have taken an early lead in the race to sign the England captain and will up their efforts in the coming weeks.
Kane was desperate to join either City or United prior to Euro 2020 and the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo is unlikely to have excited him much with the club's transfer business also stunted due to funds.
If the 27-year-old does make the move to the Etihad along with Grealish, it would spell huge danger for the other clubs in the Premier League – who can likely kiss goodbye any chance of winning the title for the next few years.
