What the English contenders might need for greater success in Champions League | Paul Wilson

Premier League sides have struggled to impose themselves in Europe in recent years because the domestic competition is seen as an obstacle to success

Next season, assuming Liverpool can negotiate the play-off round, there will be five English clubs in the Champions League. That is a large number, though it does not necessarily follow that a greater representation will lead to a better chance of English success. Premier League sides have been struggling to impose themselves in Europe in recent years. From a position a decade ago when finals were being reached on a regular basis and Uefa had genuine concerns when two English clubs faced each other in Moscow in 2008, the strength of the Premier League now seems to be an obstacle to progress in Europe rather than the money and attention grabber that once threatened domination.

Chelsea were the last English team to appear in a final, when they won the event on penalties in Munich in 2012, though the reality of the past five years has been that English clubs have rarely been around to contest the later stages of the knockout rounds. Leicester City did surprisingly well to reach the quarter-finals this year, which was better than more experienced teams such as Arsenal and Manchester City managed.

Tottenham offer €2m to buy on-loan goalkeeper Pau López from Espanyol

• Spain under-21 goalkeeper was on loan at Spurs last season
• Offer includes up to €2m in future bonuses and a cut of any future sale

Tottenham Hotspur have moved to turn Pau López’s season-long loan into a permanent deal and have offered Espanyol €2m (£1.74m) plus a further €2m in add-ons. The proposal includes a clause that would guarantee the Spanish club a cut of any future sale and Tottenham are confident it will be accepted.

Pau, who will play for Spain at the European Under-21 Championship in Poland later this month, did not feature for Tottenham during the season but he is highly rated by the manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

Who should the 20 Premier League clubs be targeting in the transfer window?

Arsenal need a midfielder, Everton should consider Jordan Pickford, Manchester City should invest in Alex Sandro and West Ham should sign Jermain Defoe

By Martin Laurence for WhoScored?, part of the Guardian Sport Network

The fact Arsenal need reinforcements in central midfield every summer shows they have failed to rectify an issue that has been holding them back for some time. They have been linked with a move for RB Leipzig’s Naby Keïta on numerous occasions this year and the Guinean could be the answer to their problems. An all-rounder in the middle of the park, the 22-year-old scored eight goals, registered seven assists and averaged 2.7 dribbles in the Bundesliga last season, while producing 2.6 tackles and 2.6 interceptions per game to boot.
