Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham continue to be among the busiest clubs of the summer window as the new Premier League season kicks off tonight. Marc Cucurella has been acquired for £62 million at Stamford Bridge, and Wesley Fofana may soon follow if Thomas Tuchel has his way, despite a £70 million deal being turned down. Barcelona is expected to sign Marcos Alonso.
Tottenham has already brought in six players, and the £21 million agreement for Udinese left-back Destiny Udogie, who is said to have been personally suggested by one Antonio Conte, will likely bring in a seventh. Conte apparently wants three more, and Pau Torres, Memphis Depay, and Nicolo Zaniolo have all been mentioned.
Despite spending more than £120 million, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has said that Youri Tieleman of Leicester City is still on his list of targets. Edu, who is a target this summer, is allegedly trying to damage Leicester’s negotiating position by extending the clock. Additionally linked to Lucas Paqueta.
