The top sides in the Premier League are spending big this summer to improve their respective squads.

Manchester United have so far been one of the biggest spenders in the transfer market this summer, as the club has spent over £100m on the signing of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Manchester City have as well spent big this summer, with a British record breaking £100m deal for Jack Grealish.

Chelsea will smash the club’s transfer record with a £98 move for Romelu Lukaku, and a deal is expected to be sealed for Sevilla’s Jules Kounde.

For Liverpool, their only signing is the £36m capture of RB Leipzig central defender Ibrahima Konate in May and it currently appears he will be the only major addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Despite their lack of signings, Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has dished out warnings to the big Premier League sides that Liverpool won’t be intimidated and will be stronger this season.

He maintained that Liverpool won’t pay attention to Chelsea despite the Blues Champions League victory last season.

“This Liverpool squad has already won the Premier League, the Champions League, some important trophies. We have already shown what we are capable of,” he said.

‘We don’t pay attention to the other teams. City are the Premier League champions and Chelsea the Champions League champions, and the English teams are always strong and will always fight for trophies. This year won’t be different.

“We will be strong and they will be strong as well. Hopefully we will be a bit stronger.

“We don’t pay too much attention to the other teams, we just focus on us and working hard to be in the best way as possible.”
