Premier League summer signings in the ongoing transfer window are characterized by some significant transactions and the entrance of some well-known players to the league.
So far, many clubs have already made shrewd moves, even if there is still plenty of time for other high-profile acquisitions.
Since they are the greatest spenders thus far, Arsenal have a lot to show for their £117 million investment, with Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City being their top two acquisitions.
Jesus has gotten off to a strong start with four goals in three pre-season friendlies, and he intends to compete for the Premier League golden boot this season.
Erling Haaland, City’s star acquisition, who has adapted to his new squad and concluded his debut with a goal against Bayern Munich, is expected to be a problem to his opponents’ defense this summer.
Following his £50 million move to Chelsea, Raheem Sterling might be optimistic about his chances of finishing the season as the top scorer.
Although Thomas Tuchel has a shortlist of four defenders as he searches for replacements for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, Sterling is one of two Blues signings along with Kalidou Koulibaly.
Koulibaly will finally have the chance to show himself in the Premier League after years of conjecture, although he might be overshadowed by Lisandro Martinez, whose £46 million transfer to Manchester United was revealed on Thursday.
With his ability to play four different characters, Martinez, the “Butcher of Amsterdam” arrives with a strong reputation and a lot to offer Erik ten Hag.
In addition, United have made a shrewd move to acquire Christian Eriksen on a free transfer after the Danish forward displayed outstanding performance for Brentford.
The Bees’ midfield could benefit greatly from Eriksen’s one goal and four assists, as he showed that he still has a touch of class.
Before finalizing a deal for Yves Bissouma, one of the six additions Antonio Conte has made this summer, Tottenham were also interested in Eriksen.
At £60 million, Richarlison is the most expensive player among them, but Djed Spence is undoubtedly the best.
The right-back, who played for Nottingham Forest and earned a promotion to the Premier League last season, has great potential and might end up being a steal at around £20 million.
Newcastle’s acquisition of Nick Pope is another very wise financial decision.
One of the best deals of the summer transfer season involved enticing Pope away from Burnely for £10 million. Pope is a Premier League veteran and an England international.
