Premier League Top 5 Summer Transfers

Chelsea's new goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is unveiled during a press conference at Stamford Bridge London Thursday Aug. 9

With a total of 128 players transferred between May 17 to August 9 in both permanent and loan deals all over Europe, there was so much value to add to the teams, going into the new season.

Now Tottenham boss Pochettino will be expected to build on last season's performances with the same group of players that took the club to a third placed finish.

It has been another summer of transfer drama for Premier League clubs, with well over £1 billion spent by top flight sides, as they all look to improve their squads ahead of the upcoming season.

With transfer business now done and dusted, clubs are now well poised to settle down to the task of posting a good outing in the Premier League this season.

In England the highest-spending clubs were Liverpool (£165 million), Chelsea (£120 million), Fulham (£105 million) and Leicester City (£100 million), who made up about 40% of the aggregate gross player transfer expenditure by Premier League clubs.

Manchester United vs Leicester City team news announced
Neil Warnock says Cardiff have been wise with their spending during the transfer window on their return to the Premier League .

"I am convinced that Jurgen Klopp's progressive side are the biggest danger to City this season and I feel they will give Pep Guardiola's side a real run for their money", Owen told BetVictor. "We recognise the achievement in keeping our squad together, for now at least, and in getting key players to agree new contracts". But anything less than a convincing victory will stir debate about Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy's failure to deliver new players for his manager at the start of a campaign that will see the club move into the rebuilt White Hart Lane stadium after a year at Wembley. For these leagues the transfer window does not end until the end of the month and spending can be expected to continue.

"If we don't make our team better, it will be a hard season for us".

The player, however, chose to enter the jet going to France and joined Monaco at the last minute, saying it was a better club for him to develop on his football career.

United chased a number of targets during the summer window, from Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld to a late move for Atletico Madrid stalwart Diego Godin, but were ultimately unsuccessful.
