Liverpool amounted the biggest Premier League investors last summer and their £170-million ($219-million) investment paid-off with a third-highest Premier League place ever and a return to the Champions League final. No transfer news is expected at Anfield this summer as Klopp fine-tunes to dislodge City.

Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge are set to leave on free transfer and cover is needed for Andy Robertson at left-back and up front as a back-up for Roberto Firmino.

Tottenham

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders to get his side to the Champions League final and back into the competition next season despite not signing a single player since January 2018.

The Argentine, though, has been putting pressure on the famously frugal Tottenham board to back him this summer now the club have moved into their new 62,000-capacity home, which cost more than £1 billion and has slowed Spurs’ spending in recent seasons.

Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon is a target as competition for Danny Rose at left-back, while the club needs a more potent back-up to Harry Kane than Fernando Llorente.

The club has also been linked with a number of midfielders transfer rumour, including Barcelona’s Andre Gomes, Youri Tielemans, who shone on loan at Leicester from Monaco, and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

The club plan to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and hope to have the ban suspended until the judgement.

Eden Hazard finally looks set to transfer to Real Madrid, leaving the Blues without their best player in recent seasons.

Christian Pulisic was signed in January to fill that void and will arrive from Borussia Dortmund, but Chelsea may be forced to rely on talented youngsters currently out on loan.

Arsenal

Arsenal’s summer business will depend largely on whether they beat Chelsea in the Europa League final to seal a return to the Champions League.

An ageing defence that conceded 51 goals in the Premier League cost the Gunners a top-four finish and reinforcements are needed across the whole backline. The departure of Aaron Ramsey also leaves a big hole in midfield.

Manchester United

United face by far the biggest rebuilding job after a disastrous season. They fail to qualify for the Champions League and finish as close to the relegation zone as to City in the league.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised big changes but much will depend on how many players on big contracts United can get rid of to free up funds.

Paul Pogba could possibly transfer to Real Madrid, while Romelu Lukaku has attracted interest from Serie A.

A centre-back remains the priority, with Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly the prime target, but the Senegalese is likely to cost a world-record fee for a defender.

Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho has been linked with a return to England, but would cost more than £100 million.
