One month from Tuesday, the 2017-18 Premier League season is going to begin. The transfer window is in full swing and as preseason training is about to start. What questions are being made to the top 6 teams of last season?
LIVERPOOL: Can they compete home and abroad?
In a good moment, Liverpool can beat any team. Last season proved it. If they get to another playoff, they can get to the group stages of the Champions League. Europe is where Liverpool belong, but Mohamed Salah is the only major signing so far this summer. Klopp must add to more to his ranks if Liverpool are to be successful both home and abroad.
MANCHESTER UNITED: Is Lukaku the correct player?
Jose Mourinho’s faith is in Romelu Lukaku, to get him score the goals that fire a title challenge. With just 54 goals in 38 games, Man U needed more goal last season, even with Ibrahimovic in top form. With the Swede gone, Mourinho hopes Lukaku to repeat his prolific Everton form, both in the Premier League and the Champions.
TOTTENHAM: Is Kyle Walker leaving?
Their only current question is where Kyle Walker will be playing his football in September. Manchester City want to sign the England right-back, who would welcome the chance to more than double his money.
MANCHESTER CITY: How will Guardiola keep his crew happy?
If City gets all their top targets this summer, the already-strong team will be full of excellence. Guardiola has a forward line of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling and still wants to add Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez. Behind them, there’s Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, Yaya Toure and Fernandinho.
ARSENAL: Is Sanchez staying or going?
They started great the transfer window by signing of Alexandre Lacazette, but the true measure of triumph is going to be if they keep some key players. Alexis Sanchez has not signed a new contract yet, and could attempt to force a move, Arsenal has to answer this question: Do they cash in on their most valuable asset or do they force him to see out the last year of his deal before losing him for free? If they want to win next season, to keep Sanchez is fundamental.
CHELSEA: Is Conte getting the team he wants?
Their approach in the transfer market backfired hugely this week as Man United stole in to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton. He was Antonio Conte’s No. 1 choice to replace Diego Costa, meaning the Premier League champions have been forced to re-evaluate their options to address their most persistent need. There is a bigger issue, though: Chelsea’s only signing to show for weeks of transfer talks is Willy Caballero. Both Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger are expected to follow, but the deals are taking longer than expected. Plus, Conte has not yet committed to a new contract and is unlikely to do so until he gets the team he wants.
