So far we’ve seen a number of confirmed moves and not much done with the big guns, rumors circulating but still not a lot of work completed but there are certainly a few moves to mention which are of course exciting.

Arsenal are often associated with players but so far Nuno Tavares is the only significant addition from Benfica. Tavares, 21, is a left-back alternative and is said to have cost £ 8m. A Portuguese U.21 international with one season behind him in the first team. We’ll have to wait and see how Arteta will expand its roster.

Aston Villa has so far accepted Ashley Young. The fresh Serie A winner with Inter will return to Villa after several seasons spent years with this football club. Young, 36, has been linked with a move to another of his previous clubs, Watford.

Dean Smith has also won a fantastic player in the Argentine Emeliano Buendia who will not participate in the return of Norwich City PL. A 24 year old midfielder with special skills who can be a sensation alongside Jack Grealish if the Englishman stays.

So far, no noteworthy changes at promoted Brentford. The bees have made moves for younger players that aren’t really seen as first-team alternatives, but you never know at this club as they tend to find talent that matches their priorities that aren’t age related at all.

With Enock Mwepu, midfielder of RB Salzburg, Brighton has made a strong new signing so far. The 24-year-old has been in the books with the Austrian club since 2017. He is a Zambian international and is expected to compete for a place in the first team. Gary Dicker has also returned to Brighton from Kilmarnock as the now 34-year-old is considered an outdated alternative in the U.23.

Burnley is a club that so far has had a strong addition from Stoke City defenseman Nathan Collins. The Irish U.21 international made his breakthrough last season with The Potters and will be joined by another minor league player, Jacob Bedeau, who joins Scunthorpe United.

There’s nothing to report from Chelsea, but Crystal Palace has a very interesting new signing from Reading. Michael Olise is a player to watch when the French U19 international joins the Royals after a great season. It’s interesting to see what newly appointed manager Patrick Vieira will do after taking over Roy Hodgson.

Everton named Rafael Benitez as their new coach, with the recent departure of Carlo Ancelotti, whom we all know took the chance of a new period at Real Madrid. No new additions to Everton so far but we will likely see a couple of moves in the next few weeks.

Mercelo Bielsa has unfinished business as he prepares his Leeds United for next season and permanently expands his squad from Manchester City on loan from Jack Harrison. Harrison, 24, with just a few caps for England U.21, is a player to watch and could be the next Leeds player to follow Calvin Phillips to a full cap. Leeds ahs have also added left-back Junior Firpo to their Barcelona squad. Also 24 years old and a strong and interesting player.

Leicester City won’t live on its laurels as manager Brendan Rodgers add RB Salzburg strikers Patson Dake and Lille’s Boubakary Soumare to their formidable squad. Ryan Bertrand is a certain new man too, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Liverpool are linked by several names but so far the only new face is Ibrahima Konate, who comes from RB Leipzig. The France U.21 international is a proven center-back who is believed to become an integral part of the team and achieve a starting position.

Nothing new to report from Man City as Man Utd added goalkeeper Tom Heaton and cross alternative Jadon Sancho to their squad. Finally, OGS have found their man after a long hunt for the player who will be one of those who has a life in both Manchester camps.

No new major faces have been added in Newcastle, with some young players but so far Steve Bruce has no new names in his squad, while at Bruce’s former club Norwich City the situation is a little different with the changes of goalkeeper Angus Gunn from Southampton, striker- Alternative Milot Raschica from Werder Bremen, left-back Dimitris Giannoulis switched from PAOK after a successful loan last season. A loan deal to Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour is also included, plus Burnley’s Ben Gibson, a 24-year-old defender with a Middlesbrough past that is a bit of a hidden diamond without actually finding his place on Turf Moor.

Southampton added two new signings to Theo Walcott after taking on loan from Everton last season. Romain Perraud also comes from Brest, a 23-year-old French U.21 international who plays in central defense.

Nothing new from Tottenham Hotspur as the club has just found its alternative manager in former Wolves general Nuno Espirito Santo. There will likely be a couple of moves as there is a large group of players on the outlist. Watford is preparing his return to PL action with a similar approach, taking on a ton of new players, including former Spurs man Danny Rose as one of those new recruits. Another prolific player is Joshua King, who moved on from Everton after a difficult time at Goodison Park following his recent layoff. Mattie Pollock, a young defender, has joined them from Grimsby Town and Emmanuel Dennis from Club Brugge so it could be difficult to find the best team.

West Ham and David Moyes haven’t started any major transfer moves yet. No new players are listed who are considered alternatives for the first team. At Wolverhampton, who will introduce Bruno Lage as the new manager, Ruben Vinagre closed some deals after his loan last season. Rayan Ait-Nouri is also a newcomer from Angers who was loaned to Wolves last season. The biggest excitement is likely to be the move of Barcelona midfielder Franciso Trincao as it will fill gaps in the club that need to be filled after players who left Diego Jota in particular.
