The deadline is moving closer and the Premier League is still seeing plenty of action in the transfer market.
Manchester United’s record signing of centre-back Harry Maguire for $144 million AUD was followed by a number of other signings from rival clubs.
Crystal Palace is aiming to crack into the European spots this year and whilst still holding on to Wilfred Zaha, the arrival of Chelsea legend Gary Cahill could be the catalyst needed to help spark the London based club to new heights.
Cahill won two Premier Leagues, two FA Cups and two European trophies with the Blues including the 2012 Champions League. After 290 games with Chelsea and 61 England caps, the 33-year-old will be looking to make an impact at his new home.
Liverpool’s quiet English summer has seen some recent action with a goalkeeper change. Allison will remain the Reds’ main man but former West Ham keeper Adrian will become his new #2 on a free transfer. This comes after the departure of Simon Mignolet as he returns to his home country of Belgium after 205 games with the Merseysiders.
Mignolet signs for Club Brugge for a reported $14 million AUD deal. This will please Reds fans with Adrian having plenty of experience in the Premier League as well as seeing the end to Mignolet’s tender as a Liverpool player.
Brighton & Hove Albion have also made an impact signing young French striker Neal Maupay from Brentford. Having scored in over 50% of his matches for the Championship club he will be looking to continue his form in the top flight of English football.
The fee was not disclosed but it is predicted the Gulls paid around $35-40 million AUD for the striker.
That’s the latest news out of England, and with Manchester City retaining the Community Shield, all that’s left is the first kick off this coming weekend.
