The early summer transfer deadline in the Premier League has seen a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

Staying in London, and in arguably one of the more freaky transfer rumours of the summer, Tottenham Hotspur left back Danny Rose could be planning to swap the Premier League for the Bundesliga, with Champions League outfit Schalke said to be interested.

Figures released by Deloitte show clubs paid out an estimated 1.23 billion pounds before the window closed - down 2 hundred million pounds on the same period previous year.

The north London club have often done things differently when it comes to buying and selling players, with chairman Daniel Levy earning a reputation as a hard negotiator who is unafraid to leave things until late in the day.

Willian played a vital role in Chelsea's FA Cup win last season and though the Blues were not lucky enough to finish in top four to compete in next season's UEFA Champions League, Willian was outstanding and also dazzled at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup and attracted interest from Barcelona while Jose Mourinho was also eyeing a reunion with the player.

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

Saturday's visit to Newcastle for their opening game will therefore offer few surprises, although Pochettino must decide which of the nine players who appeared in the World Cup semi-finals are ready to return to action.

It has been another summer of transfer drama for Premier League clubs, with well over £1 billion spent by top flight sides, as they all look to improve their squads ahead of the upcoming season.

Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga was the most expensive player at 71.

Preparing for its first Premier League campaign in four years, Fulham added five players on Thursday, including signing midfielder André-Frank Zambo Anguissa from Marseille, goalkeeper Sergio Rico from Sevilla and forward Luciano Vietto on loan from Atletico Madrid.

Everton completed the treble-signing of Brazil winger Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk, along with Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

Everton took their transfer spending past 270 million in the last 12 months after making three late additions. Ayew, who has 11 goals in 49 appearances for Ghana, scored 11 times for Swansea last season as he impressed in a struggling side.
