Which Premier League side has the most transfer business left to do?

| 07.08.2018

The transfer window slams shut at 5:00pm this Thursday, which means there’s very little time left to get deals done.

Plenty of clubs still have work to do, but who’s in for a mad trolley dash over the next few days?

We’ve taken a look at which club has the most work to get done…

Who’s not done anything yet?

Tottenham Hotspur are 8/13 to sign Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish. They’re 3/1 to bring in Wilfried Zaha and 4/1 to get Anthony Martial too. But they haven’t actually confirmed any signings yet.

It looks like Toby Alderweireld will go. He’s 2/5 to move to Manchester United. There’s talk of Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele leaving as well. They’d all need to be replaced.

Spurs would get a more reliable back-up to Harry Kane than Fernando Llorente too in an ideal world.

However, their main aim this season will be to stay in the top four. Even if they don’t sign anyone, they’ll be right in the mix. We’ve got them at 4/5 to secure a Champions League spot.

Who should be concerned?

Newcastle United have finally clinched a deal for Salomon Rondon on loan, but Rafa Benitez still wants a left-back, centre-back, winger and a number 10.

It’s going to be hard to address all of those needs, especially as Benitez has had to work under a sell-to-buy policy at St James’ Park.

It’s not ideal, but Newcastle shouldn’t be in too much trouble as long as their world-class manager is in the job. They’re 4/1 to go down.

Burnley finished seventh last season, but they’re as short as 7/2 to be relegated this time around.

They could be a victim of their own success. Sean Dyche’s squad doesn’t look big enough to cope with a demanding Premier League campaign and Europa League football.

They’ve only brought in Vinnie Steels and Ben Gibson so far. A few more new faces would help to ease the workload at Turf Moor.

Who’s got the most work to do?

Manchester United have already signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant so far. That’s a Brazilian international midfielder, a very promising full-back, and a third-choice goalkeeper. All three signings make sense.

But United’s goal this season is to win the title for the first time since 2012/13. They don’t look like getting near without significant investment over the next few days. We’ve got them all the way out at 7/1.

Jose Mourinho clearly doesn’t feel his current squad are up to the task. He’s been on the warpath this summer, trying to force the club to back him.

He’s after a proven centre-back and a top-quality winger. Mourinho doesn’t seem to trust Marcus Rashford or Martial up front, so a striker to share the burden with Romelu Lukaku wouldn’t go amiss either.

If those areas aren’t strengthened, it could be a very long season for United.
