I'm thinking the transfer window is going to be very active this summer, especially in the premier league. It's getting harder and harder to perform well in the league and the top clubs will want to spend big in order to strengthen their squad and outdo their rivals.
Already we've seen Liverpool sign Jordan Henderson from Sunderland and Manchester United Phil Jones. Ashley Young is also on his way to Manchester United, whom I think is a very creative player and has a bright future ahead of him.
It seems as though British players are a priority within the Premier League, which they should be. Kenny Dalglish seems to want to do this, with the likes of Gary Cahill, Charlie Adam and James McCarthy on his list.

Manchester City will certainly be splashing the cash soon, I'm sure they'll bring in 3 or 4 top players to beef up their already impressive squad for the Champions League next season.
Talk of Carlos Tevez's future has been spreading, with the Argentinian saying how Manchester is 'boring' and that he 'doesn't want to go back' because of his family. Manchester City may well have to bring in another forward to replace him, with Sergio Aguero a likely target.
Chelsea and Manchester United I'm sure will be battling it out for 1st place next season, and they'll definitely be bringing in top players to do this. The likes of Wesley Sneijder, Luka Modric, Sergio Aguero, Neymar, Alexis Sanchez and others are getting a lot of attention and will surely be on their way to these clubs to help them win the coveted Premier League and Champions League.

Arsenal are having problems with keeping a few of their players. It has been reported recently that the captain Cesc Fabregas wants to join his childhood club Barcelona. If I were Arsenal, I would let him join because he's not going to play well for them and they should just get their £40 million for the maestro and find a replacement. Samir Nasri I believe is not signing a new contract for them, but I think they should try and keep him because he is a fantastic young player.

Managers are being transferred as well. Aston VIlla are still looking and Chelsea I've heard will have a new manager in the next couple of weeks. I'm hoping it will be Guus Hiddink because he is a very experienced manager and he has won a trophy before with Chelsea. He will also have a big task of changing Chelsea's squad, with a number of players on their way out who will need to be replaced with other talented players. The question is, who will they be and will Chelsea win a trophy next season?
We'll have to wait and see.
