Daniel Levy and Tottenham sent big transfer warning with Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea deals

Here we take a look at what Tottenham’s rivals for a Champions League place have done so far in the transfer market this summer and what they could possibly do next

It could turn out to be some battle as Tottenham and their rivals fight it out for European football in the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.

A Champions League spot will be ultimate goal for Tottenham, although that may be easier said than done as the new head coach looks to stamp his mark on the squad and get them playing his attractive brand of football which could take some time. As Europe’s premier competition is set to undergo a revamp in 2024/25 with four extra teams coming into the equation, the Premier League appear set to benefit with one extra place, meaning a fifth-place finish would result in a place at Europe’s top table come September 2024.

Newcastle United will once again be in the mix after finishing in the top four back in May, while Brighton & Hove Albion and Aston Villa may also fancy their chances of causing a big upset after further strengthening their squads. Liverpool will hope to return to the Champions League at the first time of asking after their struggles last term and Chelsea should also be back in the running under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.

So how are Tottenham’s Champions League rivals shaping up ahead of the new term and what could they do next? football.london takes a look below.

Man City

Already boasting such a talented squad at the Etihad Stadium, Pep Guardiola has added some more quality to his midfield this summer with Mateo Kovacic arriving on a deal from Chelsea. The treble winners aren’t finished there in terms of incomings, however, with RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol on the verge of signing after City finally agreed on a £78million fee for the Croat ace.

Guardiola will also have an eye on a new winger before the summer market closes for business following Riyad Mahrez’s move to Al-Ahli. A big loss to lose someone of the Algerian’s quality, City will also have to cope without Ilkay Gundogan, who also contributed regularly when it mattered most, as he is now a Barcelona player.
