Which Premier League clubs haven’t made any signings yet this summer?

They’re likely to be busy in the new few weeks
Most of the Premier League sides have splashed the cash this summer, with over £900m worth of business already having been done.
With over two weeks of the transfer window left to go, that figure could still rise much higher, especially as three top-flight clubs haven’t brought anyone in yet.
The Coral News Team have looked at what they could do before the window shuts…
Sean Dyche has done a remarkable job at Burnley. The Clarets finished seventh last season – the best of the rest – and secured European qualification for the first time in over 50 years.
But Burnley’s small squad could struggle to cope with more games if they don’t bring in reinforcements, especially since they’ve let Scott Arfield and Dean Marney move on.
Dyche’s team are incredibly well-drilled, but a little more technical quality could help them take the next step. They’ve been linked with the likes of Sam Clucas and Jay Rodriguez. Expect them to bring in a few players before the August 9th deadline.
Everton haven’t signed anyone yet, but it only seems a matter of time before they bring in Richarlison from Watford for a reported fee of £50m.
It’s a huge sum for a relatively unproven player, but new Toffees boss Marco Silva worked with the winger during his time at Vicarage Road. If Silva can help Richarlison recover his form from the early stages of last season, Everton will have a real talent.
If there’s any money left in the kitty, the Merseyside club have also been linked with Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne, as well as Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.
Tottenham Hotspur have come a long way under Mauricio Pochettino, but they’re still waiting for their first piece of silverware since 2008.
Will this be the year they make a real push for the title? They’re currently 11/1 to finish top, which means they’ll probably need to spend to catch the teams above them.
The likes of Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele are expected to leave this summer. Once their futures have been resolved, the North London club should step things up.
As well as replacements for the two Belgians, Pochettino could do with more depth in attacking areas. Wilfried Zaha and Jack Grealish are reportedly on his shortlist.
