Liverpool’s £77m summer transfer spree so far compared to Everton and more as deadline day approaches

How do the Merseyside pair measure up against the rest of their Premier League rivals?

It’s been an intriguing summer of transfer activity for Liverpool and Everton.

The two Merseyside clubs have recruited to varying degrees this summer, but the early signs this season have been that their newest additions may take a little while longer to settle in.

The Reds have taken just two points from their first three matches, while the Toffees have taken just one.

With less than a week to go until the window closes, the assumption will be that the vast majority of business has now been concluded - although a late deal or two can never be ruled out.

As such, we’ve taken a look at all 20 top flight clubs to see how much they’ve spent so far, and to determine who comes out on top in terms of their summer expenditure.
