The 2017/2018 summer transfer season has already broken the £1.2 billion cost mark for the 2016/2017 period. However, spending is likely to continue spiralling upwards as more clubs are still in the market for top quality talent to add to their squads.

For the latest transfer rumours, you can visit the best UK football betting sites that boast a great amount of options and betting odds for the transfer period. Let's take a look at some of the football clubs to see where they're at in transfers.

Arsenal

According to the Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, the clubs is in the market to make a few adjustments. He mentions that the team is to sign if any quality talent becomes available. According to reports, the club has set its sights on Monaco’s Thomas Lemar. Paddy Power has 7/2 odds on Lemar finalising the switch to the Emirates Stadium before the end of the transfer season. Among those expected to leave the club are Jack Wilshere, Alex Iwobi on loan and Lucas Perez, who has already handed in a transfer request.

Chelsea

The Community Shield defeat to Arsenal has left Chelsea with more questions than answers. Speaking after the game, Antonio Conte lamented the departure of Serbian international Nemanja Matic. He stated that the gap left by the industrious Serbian, was yet to be filled and the club has to find more defensive minded midfielders before the transfer season ends. Jao Cancelo is earmarked as a potential replacement to the Serb and as per reports, the deal could be finalised before Chelsea plays their first game of the new season.

Liverpool

Earlier in the season, Liverpool reported they would not be pursuing Southampton’s Virgil Van Dijk after allegations of illegal approach. However, it seems highly likely that the club is to backtrack on its earlier stance as they are reported to be in advanced stages in bringing the Netherlands international to Anfield. SkyBet has 11/9 odds on the deal being finalised during this summer transfer window.

Manchester United

Speaking at a press conference after Manchester United were defeated by Real Madrid in the European Super Cup, Jose Mourinho admitted that their efforts in trying to sign former Tottenham player Gareth Bale were over, but they were still on the hunt for more players. Responding to a question, he admitted that the club is still interested in Ivan Perisic to jump on board.

Machester City

Though having done much of their transfer dealings early in the window, Manchester City still has room for additions. One of the players linked with Machester City since the end of last season is Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez. Manager, Pep Guardiola, openly admitted his desire for the Chilean to move to the Etihad and with only less than a year left, Arsenal’s resolve to let the Chile front man leave next summer, will be tested with a strong and lucrative offer. According to SkyBet, Alexis Sanchez has 23/20 odds of moving to Manchester City during this window period.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham managed to keep the core of their young team intact during the summer transfer window. However, the departure of Kyle Walker and a lack of forward options other than Harry Kane, leaves the club in some form of limbo. According to reports, the club is looking at Fulham wing back, Ryan Sessognon, and Celtic’s Dembele, to boost their defence and attack respectively.

Everton

Having already splashed over £90 million thus far in the summer transfer window, largely financed by Romelu Lukaku’s move to Manchester United, Everton is still looking to beef up their squad. The club is searching for forward options and are targeting a set of Arsenal players such as Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott. With a fierce competition of places in the Arsenal squad, it is likely that they may be able to lure any one of these three players.
