Manchester City Transfer Review 2023

City have not spent big just yet, but if a number of those players rumoured to be moving on do indeed go, then City may well be much busier towards the end of the summer.

A deal for Gvardiol looks almost certain to be completed in the next few days.

Kovacic is a nice swap for Gundogan.

  • Man City Transfer Impact – Negligible – Kovacic is a like-for-like swap for Gundogan.

Arsenal Transfer Review 2023

The Gunners have spent big so far in this window, but they have spent well.

Declan Rice’s arrival offers a big upgrade in the midfield anchoring role. Havertz has huge quality as an attacker of attacking midfielder, while Timber is a versatile and talented young defender.

The players set to leave won’t make a huge difference to the first team. It’s been a great window so far for Arsenal.

  • Arsenal Transfer Impact – Huge – Added quality to all outfield areas of the team.

Manchester United

Players Out

  • Phil Jones – Released
  • Axel Tuanzebe – Released
  • Zidane Iqbal – to Utrecht – Undisclosed
  • Ethan Laird – to Birmingham City – Undisclosed

Players Linked to being Sold

  • Fred – linked with AS Roma, Fulham
  • Harry Maguire – linked with Tottenham, Fulham
  • Donny van de Beek – No interest as yet but Man Utd want to sell
  • Scott McTominay – Man Utd believed to be open to offers
  • Mason Greenwood – Linked with loan to Roma, Juventus, Milan and Inter
  • David de Gea – Still not signed new contract offer. Could leave at any time on a free
  • Anthony Martial – linked with a move back to France

Total Income from Sales – £0

Players In

Players Linked to Man Utd

  • Victor Osimhen – from Napoli – (£90m)

Total Money Spent – £60m

Net Spend in 2023 So Far – -£60m

Manchester United Transfer Review 2023

It’s been a slow window so far for United. Mason Mount looks set to arrive from Chelsea which will be a boost in midfield but the sale of fringe players is taking time and is affecting United’s ability to bring in other players.

If de Gea does not sign his amended contract, a move for a goalkeeper would seem very likely next for United and it may be that they are waiting on the Spaniard to make up his mind over signing.

They could do with getting big money earners (de Gea, Martial, Maguire, Fred, Van de Beek) off the wage bill to help with FFP going forward.

  • Man Utd Transfer Impact – Positive – Mount adds quality in midfield

Newcastle United

Players Out

  • Ciaran Clark – Released
  • Matty Longstaff – Released
  • Chris Wood – to Nottingham Forest – £15m

  • Ryan Fraser – Open to offers
  • Allen Saint-Maximin – linked to Atalanta

Total Income from Sales – £15m

Players In

  • Sandro Tonali – from AC Milan – £52m + add ons
  • Yankuba Minteh – from Odense – £5.8m

Players Linked to Newcastle

  • Conor Gallagher – from Chelsea – (£20m)
  • Kalvin Phillips – from Man City – (Loan)
  • Tino Livramento – from Southampton – (£38m)
  • Gabriel Veiga – from Celta Vigo (£40m)
  • Kephren Thuram – from Nice – (£38m)
  • Harvey Barnes – from Leicester City – (£20m)
  • Roger Ibanez – from AS Roma – (£25m)
  • Matheus Franca – from Flamengo – (Undisclosed)

Total Money Spent – £60.8m

Net Spend in 2023 So Far – -£45.8m

Newcastle United Transfer Review 2023

Newcastle are adhering to FFP rules so their mves in the window have been relatively muted but Tonali is an excellent addition in midfield.

Unsurprisingly, the Magpies have been linked with several players and I’d expect a few more through the doors over the window, with another addition in midfield, plus a wide man likely to be top of Eddie Howe’s wish list.

  • Newcastle Transfer Impact – Positive – Tonali is a quality signing in midfield, but Newcastle will need more for the Champions League campaign ahead.


Players Out

  • Roberto Firmino – Released
  • Naby Keita – Released (since signed with Werder Bremen)
  • James Milner – Released (since signed with Brighton)
  • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – Released

  • Ibrahima Konate – linked with Napoli but sale unlikely

Total Income from Sales – £0

  • Dominic Szobozslai – from Red Bull Leipzig – £60.1m

Players Linked to Liverpool

  • Micky van de Ven – from Wolfsburg – (£30m)
  • Romeo Lavia – from Southampton – (£50m)
  • Kephren Thuram – from Nice – (£38m)
  • Gabriel Veiga – from Celta Vigo – (£34.4m)
  • Federico Valverde – from Real Madrid – (£103m)
  • Aurelien Tchoumani – from Real Madrid – (£80m)
  • Goncalo Inacio – from Sporting Lisbon – (£43m)
  • Ryan Gravenberch – from Bayern Munich – (£25m)

Total Money Spent – £95.1m

Net Spend in 2023 So Far – -£95.1m

Liverpool Transfer Review 2023

After falling off last season, Liverpool needed a big revamp in midfield and in MacAllister and Szoboszlai they have made two big signings.

With Alexander-Arnold likely to move into a midfield role, another centre back signing is needed to play alongside Van Dijk and Konate to complete a great summer of business.

  • Liverpool Transfer Impact –  Huge – The Reds needed a big revamp in midfield. That’s what they are well on the way to achieving.

Tottenham Hotspurs

Players Out

  • Lucas Moura – Released
  • Harry Winks – to Leicester City – £15m
  • Hugo Lloris – Released

Players Linked to being Sold

  • Harry Kane – linked with Man Utd, Man City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, PSG
  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – linked with Atletico Madrid (£35m)

  • Guglielmo Vicari – from Empoli – Undisclosed

Players Linked to Tottenham

  • Aymeric Laporte – from Man City – (£21m)
  • Micky van de Ven – from Wolfsburg – (£30m)
  • Clement Lenglet – from Barcelona – (£15m)
  • David Raya – from Brentford – (£40m)
  • Stephane Singo – from Torino – (£12m)
  • Edmond Tapsoba – from Bayer Leverkusen – (£30m)
  • Victor Nelsson – from Galatasaray – (£22m)
  • Dusan Vlahovic – from Juventus – (£60m)
  • Nicolo Zainolo – from Galatasaray – (Unknown)

Total Money Spent – £88m+

Net Spend in 2023 So Far – -£73m

Tottenham Hotspurs Transfer Review 2023

Spurs made Kulusevksi’s move from Juventus permanent in what was an astute deal and the £50m spent on James Maddison equated to just £35m as they snagged back £15m of that selling Harry Winks to the Foxes.

Ange Postecoglu will want more signings, especially in central defence to bolster Spurs, and of course, Harry Kane’s future needs to be sorted with a move away from Spurs seeming likelier by the day.

However, the funds from that could give Postecoglu the money to make the signings he wants.

  • Tottenham Transfer Impact – Good – Maddison is a solid addition, Kulusevski too, but much hinges on Kane’s future as to whether this is a good window or not for Spurs.

Chelsea Transfer Review 2023

Chelsea have been very busy, especially selling players and have recouped £111m from deals so far, the only one of the top seven teams to record a profit over this window.

However, it has come at the expense of a number of former first team stars and it does look like Mauricio Pochettino is rebuilding the team from top to bottom.

The Londoners are still linked with lots of players and more could leave in what could be an exceptionally busy window.

  • Chelsea Transfer Impact – Undecided – Good players have left and the jury is out on whether the players brought in are any better. Only time will tell.

*any deals marked with an asterisk have not yet been fully finalised but have been agreed.
