FIFA plot transfer window changes that would have a big impact on Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham

FIFA are considering the possibility of changing the dates of this summer’s transfer window because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Elite-level football right across Europe has come to a halt in recent weeks as the outbreak of COVID-19 has swept its way across the globe, causing mass panic and chaos to multiple countries.
