The summer transfer window is well and truly open with some of world football's biggest names on the move.

Neymar has already smashed the world transfer record by swapping Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain but many closer to home could follow him in big money transfers with speculation about the futures of Philippe Coutinho, Alexis Sanchez and more refusing to go away.

Manchester City have been the summer's biggest spenders splashing over £200m on new arrivals but Pep Guardiola isn't stopping there with Jonny Evans eyed to plug what still looks to be a hole in the centre of their defence.

Crosstown rivals United have been busy too and still want more despite adding Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof with Jose Mourinho keen on an attacking wide player and a new full back.

Liverpool have struggled to get deals over the line and could still lose Coutinho while Chelsea need bodies as Antonio Conte battles with an injury and suspension crisis with the Premier League champions.
