Summer transfer window: Record set to be broken in Premier League spending spree

Bernardo Silva, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku

Premier League clubs' spending has already surpassed £500m since the end of last season - and business analysts Deloitte say they are on course to set another new record by 31 August.
