How Premier League's top teams stand

Sebastien Bassong celebrates his winner for Tottenham against Liverpool in 2009

Manchester City received £30.2m, followed by neighbours Manchester United (£23.1m), Everton (£22.7m), Bournemouth (£20m), Southampton (£15m) and Liverpool (£12.5m). Tottenham goes into the season banking on what it had a year ago, mainly Harry Kane, the World Cup's Golden Boot victor.

"We love what has been developed, but for all the great football we've seen over the last few seasons, there are no trophies to show".

Real Madrid was already pursuing the Belgium goalkeeper before striking the 35 million euro fee with Chelsea.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

That is according to the BBC's Ian Dennis, who says Spurs are set for a quiet transfer window.

The 28-year-old is entering his ninth campaign as a Man United player and is now one of the more experienced members of Jose Mourinho's squad amongst an array of younger talent.

Manchester United, meanwhile, will also be hoping to be one of the main contenders for the title, with the Red Devils having ended up in second place and without a trophy last season.

It is no secret that Mourinho has been keen to add to his squad and would have liked to add a defender. They both have new coaches who will attempt to get them back into the top four.

English Premier League club Leicester City said Thursday that they had agreed to transfer German team Freiburg's Turkish central defender Caglar Soyuncu.

Chelsea became favourite to land the CSKA Moscow midfielder as Sarri wanted to overhaul his midfield, the club quickly began the process to sign the player and an agreement had been reached with the club.

So, ahead of the 20 days which will undoubtedly prove the early closing of the window was nothing short of senseless, let's take a look at six Premier League players who may find pastures new in the coming weeks.

The club, however, opted to sign Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish as reinforcement in the midfield but the deal failed to materialize as Aston Villa rejected the £25m bid for the player until the transfer window finally closed on Thursday.
