Five things we learned from Liverpool’s transfer window, including a change in spending tact
Opinion: Five players Liverpool should have targeted this summer
Opinion: The Liverpool XI which must start against Manchester United at Old Trafford
The Black Cats have been busy as they attempt to guard against relegation. Unfortunately, they haven’t impressed many of their critics with their array of signings. Two former Liverpool players – Fabio Borini and Sebastian Coates – are among their nine new faces – while one-time Reds target Yann M’Vila is perhaps their best buy.
19) Norwich City
The newly promoted Canaries don’t look much strong that when they went down in the summer of 2014. On the plus side, they’ve managed to add six new players, including Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom on loan. Other notable additions include West Brom pair Graham Dorrans and Youssouf Mulumbu and West Ham’s Matt Jarvis.
Another newly promoted side who are likely to be facing a long and testing season. For the Cherries, the biggest priority was always likely to be holding on to the prize assets of their promotion campaign. However, they have picked up Tyrone Mings from Ipswich Town in a club record deal and experienced Everton man Sylvain Distin.
Rounding off the promoted trio are Watford, who have been very busy yet again under their new manager. An incredible 13 new players have joined, including former Tottenham man Etienne Capoue, ex-West Ham midfielder Valon Behrami and Chelsea utility man Nathan Ake. Will they all be able to learn to play together?
