To keep up alongside the league's Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR), up to six English Premier League clubs may need to sell players before the end of June. The due date is the deadline for the top flight's financial year, after which teams must demonstrate losses of not more than £105 million over the three prior years - or less, if they spend some of the period outside of the Premier League.

Sky Sports News understands that Chelsea, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Everton, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester are all under pressure to lose a key asset or two before the start of the new fiscal year. Each club's magic figure is fiercely guarded, however the circumstances they're finding themselves in are heading to a temporary transfer deadline of their own on June 30th.

The transfer window begins just 16 days prior to that, on June 14 - the opening date of UEFA Euro 2024 - and, while clubs hope to avoid spoiling the tournament by facilitating moves for competing players, a little disruption appears certain. June 30 has become a proxy deadline day for teams that need to put their finances in order, since if they are discovered to have violated the expenditure limits, they may face penalties, including point deductions.

Aston Villa look to offload superstars to comply with FFP guidelines

UEFA Champions League qualification is not going to stop Aston Villa from potentially breaking the threshold this fiscal year, given the financial rewards begin on July 1, thus they are believed to be considering selling a player.

Douglas Luiz, who has been pursued by Juventus, might be one of the candidates. Villa want over $50 million for the Brazil defensive midfielder, therefore Juventus will be forced to get creative because they cannot pay the valuation Villa has placed on him. They are willing to include Weston McKennie in any possible proposed transaction.Ollie Watkins certainly is a player worth a lot of money, but Villa are unwilling to part ways with their star goalscorer, and there aren't many clubs with £100 million to spend on a single player.
