Premier League champions Chelsea have completed four transfer deals after recruiting Manchester City reserve goalkeeper Willy Caballero, AS Roma’s Antonio Rudiger, Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Liverpool finished in fourth place last season and manager Jurgen Klopp has brought in Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, Domimic Solanke and Scottish defender Andy Robertson to improve his squad.

Manchester United have spent the biggest transfer fee this summer so far after signing Romelu Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton following Victor Lindelof’s arrival from Benfica.

Jose Mourinho has also reunited with Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic at Old Trafford after luring the Serbia star from the Premier League champions.
