Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd eye £42m deal, Arsenal given green light, four Chelsea deals | Football | Sport

Arsenal and Liverpool are well-placed to enjoy another big-spending summer transfer window, a financial expert has told Express Sport. Both Premier League teams will be hoping for a busy few months of activity in a bid to compete with Manchester City.

Dr Dan Plumley, a sport finance expert at Sheffield Hallam University, says that while top-flight clubs will be wary of profit and sustainability regulations this summer, Arsenal and Liverpool are among the teams in a healthy financial position.

“Every club is kind of a little bit more wary now than before in terms of the regulations. Partly because of what we have seen with Everton and Forest and whatever might be with Manchester City,” Plumley told Express Sport, in conjunction with Expert Casinos.

He added that both teams will also need to consider UEFA’s squad cost ratio regulations, which effectively take a club’s sporting expenditure as a percentage of its revenue. But he is confident that they will not have concerns over spending.

Plumley continued: “The other side of that is there has been some revelatory framework from UEFA, which will impact Liverpool and Arsenal as they regularly compete in UEFA competitions and will need to transition into that as well.

“That said, if you look into the data we can see, Liverpool and Arsenal are two clubs who can always spend if they want to.”
