The summer transfer window is approaching fast and as the Premier League came to a close on Sunday, May 23, the transfer window for this summer begins on Monday, June 1.

Top clubs across Europe are still looking to boost their squad ahead of the new season, and clear out their wage bill as well.

With that in mind, here's a look at the latest transfer rumours from around the Europe.

Haaland hints at Dortmund stay

Erling Haaland has hinted at seeing out at his contract with Borussia Dortmund despite being linked to Europe's biggest clubs. Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Barcelona have all been linked with a move for the promising striker.

He told Viaplay: "Borussia Dortmund say I’m 100 per cent staying this summer? I have a contract for a couple of years, so I am respectful towards my contract. A Champions League spot secured was so important to me, I want to play Champions League football. And I’ve big dreams. I just won my first major trophy and it was a great feeling. So I want to win more trophies."

Arsenal plot stunning Sterling and Mahrez swoop

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City duo Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez this summer as Pep Guardiola plans to revamp his squad ahead of the new season.

Sterling lost his place in Guardiola’s starting line-up towards the end of last season, and according to the Daily Mail, could be on his way out of City, along with Mahrez, who could also be moved on to free up the wage bill. City are reportedly keen on bringing Harry Kane and Jack Grealish, and the pair could cost Guardiola as much as £300million. The report also claims that Gabriel Jesus and centre back Aymeric Laporte could also face the axe.

Ajax want Tottenham's Bergwijn

Ajax are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham forward Steve Bergwijn, according to De Telegraaf.

The Dutchman has failed to impress much in north London, and Spurs would be open to letting him leave. However, Ajax are willing to come forward with an offer in the region of €15 million, and Daniel Levy has set an asking price of €25m but is reportedly open to negotiations.

Aguero delaying Barca decision

Sergio Aguero is reportedly delaying a decision on his future until Lionel Messi agrees to stay on at Barcelona, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The report claims that the Manchester City striker will wait until his fellow Argentine has made a call on his soon-to-expire contract before committing to any deal at Camp Nou.
