It looks likely to be a busy summer in the Premier League. As always Manchester City and Chelsea look set to use their financial strength to once again add to their squads, as they both look to getting back to the top of the Premier League table. New Manchester United manager David Moyes is also expected to be busy in the transfer window, as he looks to make the team his own. Even Arsene Wenger has hinted that Arsenal will spend big this summer, suggesting that they have finally paid off their stadium debt. So if Tottenham and Liverpool want to compete next season, they too are going to need to be busy strengthening their squads.
But the two clubs are at a disadvantage to the others. Both sides have financial limitations with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Liverpool owners FSG wanting to keep their cash in their pockets, and are unhappy to spend huge amounts for players. So with the two sides restricted by limited funds, Andre Villas-Boas and the Liverpool transfer committee are going to be looking for some bargains in the summer that could improve their sides.
