Watching Declan Rice pull off a £105m blockbuster at Arsenal this summer, it’s fair to say that England’s elite have eclipsed most of the headlines this summer.
With Three Lions captain and now former Tottenham record holder Harry Kane finally completing his stunning move to German heavyweights Bayern Munich at the end of the month, Gareth Southgate’s international stars are certainly in high demand.
Similarly, alongside James Maddison, who made an immediate impact upon arriving at Tottenham for a £40m fee, Jude Bellingham also enjoyed a great start to life at Real Madrid after completing his historic move from Borussia Dortmund.
With just a week left before the summer transfer window closes, we’ve taken a look at three England internationals who could still be on the move.
Eric Dier – Tottenham
Rushing to a 2-0 home win over Manchester United last weekend and scoring a real goal in north London, it looks like Tottenham are enjoying life under new manager Ange Postekoglou.
While Spurs may have been heartbroken when England captain Kane wrapped up his blockbuster at German giants Bayern Munich, it looks like another Three Lions ace could be on the road from Tottenham.
While the Lilywhites may not lose both of their first two Premier League games this season, Eric Dier has yet to appear in any of Postecoglu’s squads as rumors grow that the ex-Sporting Lisbon defender goes to the team. next week.
This is clearly not part of Postecoglu’s plans for the future. Sky Sports On Friday it was reported that Fulham had made inquiries about the possibility of signing the 29-year-old on a permanent basis or on loan this summer.
As Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to deduct Dyer’s salary from their payroll before the window slams shut, a Sky Sport report suggests the summer residents are confident of a deal.
Dean Henderson – Manchester United
With André Onana signed from Inter Milan this summer for a fee in the region of £47.2m, it’s no surprise that the former Ajax player immediately cemented his place as Erik ten Hag’s best player between sticks at Old “. Trafford.
However, while Dean Henderson may have watched David de Gea officially leave the former Premier League champions last month after a 12-year stint at Manchester, the England goalkeeper is once again at a career crossroads.
Having spent last season on loan at Premier League-back Nottingham Forest, Henderson has made it clear he only wants regular first-team appearances.
As United move closer to a deal with Fenerbahce’s Altai Bayindir, it has been speculated that the one-game England international will finally be granted a permanent move to Old Trafford over the next week.
While Henderson may have been linked with a permanent return to the City Ground this summer, Crystal Palace now appears to be leading the charge.
Daily Mail reported on Wednesday that the Eagles were still in talks over a fee for the 26-year-old.
Calvin Phillips – Manchester City
While Manchester City may have made history last season by becoming the first English club to win a triple title since 1999, Calvin Phillips has been forced to watch from the sidelines.
While the former Leeds star could have moved to the Etihad last summer for a fee of £45m, the England international has endured nothing less than a nightmarish 13-month spell under Pep Guardiola.
He made only a handful of Premier League appearances last season and is clearly not a vital part of Guardiola’s first-team plans. It looks like the 27-year-old is desperate to start his career away from Manchester’s blue half.
Once again, since the opening of the 2023/24 season, he has not yet managed to play a minute in the game for the first team. Phillips remains closely linked with leaving the Etihad before the summer transfer window closes next week.
With speculation earlier this week that the reigning Premier League champions are willing to let the 27-cap international go on a season-long loan, Liverpool continue to struggle to finalize what will be a blockbuster deal.
