Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta before the Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Ranking every Premier League club by their net spend in summer 2023: Tottenham above Arsenal…

The transfer window has only just opened, but several Premier League clubs have wasted no time in getting their business done as plenty of big deals have gone through so far.

The London clubs in particular have been busy, with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham all involved in some of the biggest transfer dealings so far.

Arsenal are looking to close the cap to Manchester City next year and they’ve already got a deal for Kai Havertz over the line. A blockbuster deal for West Ham’s Declan Rice is also in the works right now.

Their North London rivals Tottenham have also been active in the market. They have signed Pedro Porro and Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent basis following loan spells with the club. They’ve also added Guglielmo Vicario and James Maddison to their ranks of late.

Since Todd Boehly’s arrival at Chelsea, there’s rarely been a dull moment in the transfer market and this summer has been just as enthralling so far.

Chelsea completed a deal for RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku and have also sanctioned plenty of sales. In an attempt to trim down their squad, five first team players have already departed, with more sales to be expected.

Manchester City have replaced the outgoing Ilkay Gundogan with Chelsea’s Mateo Kovacic. Pep Guardiola’s side had also been in the hunt for Rice, but seem to have pulled out of that deal.

Things on the other side of Manchester have been a little bit quieter though. Erik ten Hag’s side have been linked with plenty of players, but they have not managed to get any deals over the line as of yet.
