With just over a month to go until the transfer window reopens in January, teams in the Premier League and across the continent will be putting plans in place to capitalise on the winter market. The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea could be among those to make squad changes in light of their poor starts to the season.
The international break will have given managers and sporting directors the opportunity to draw up possible transfer options. Sensing the possibility of a serious title challenge; Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham will surely be keen to keep the pressure on Manchester City by bringing in new recruits.
Injury issues could also play their part, with Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou and United manager Erik ten Hag each forced to improvise with their respective line-ups over the past few weeks.
