The Premier League teams have all taken their cheque books out and are splashing the cash to bring quality players and adding to their clubs. What is rather surprising is that we have been extremely quiet about our spending and despite being linked with a number of stars, not one deal has been concluded.
The reason why such a lull in transfer activity is taking place could be due to a new kit deal taking us from the 2017-18 season.
Football.London claims that we are looking at new makers for our kits next season after five seasons with Under Armour. Nike is reportedly the brand that is leading the line and it would not be a surprise if they do take over from Armour.
While a new kit deal in this day and age of football is nothing new, the report claims that we are waiting for this deal to be concluded and then start completing our deals for new signings, something which could take until the start of July.
Even though we are bringing in a ton of money through the new TV deals, there is nothing better than signing a new kit manufacturer. We all know how much Manchester United make from their mammoth deal with Adidas and hopefully, something similar can be done when we sign with Nike or any other company.
Additionally, we might have taken a cautious approach when it comes to the signings of Sessegnon or Ross Barkley given the whole Van Dijk fiasco and how Liverpool were reported by Southampton.
We should be looking to add a few players to the side and also see a number of players leave as we emend to build upon a great season last time around. Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino know they have a chance of getting better and that can only be done by bringing quality players into the side.
There still is a lot of time before the transfer window closes and the season begins and that is when we can take a proper decision about how our season will go. Hopefully, we should get a great set of players and make another challenge for the title.
