The most important Premier League signings so far

Premier League

The Premier League is always going to be the most prominent market when it comes to the transfer window. Due to how much money flows in that league, most of the clubs have enough resources to make significant investments every summer. In that regard, this transfer window is no different and there are already several interesting signings.

Manchester City won the treble last season and had to deal with the departure of Ilkay Gundogan as a free agent, who was paramount in their success in recent years. So, in order to find a replacement, City have signed Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea for a 30 million pound deal.

On the other side of the town, Manchester United have had a complicated summer because the club is in the process of getting sold to new owners but the people in charge are still moving in the transfer window. As of this writing, the Red Devils’ only signing has been Mason Mount, the Chelsea midfielder that had fallen out of favor in the last few months of the season due to contract negotiations. Mount cost 55 million pounds plus another five million in variables and is viewed as an upgrade on Christian Eriksen.

Perhaps one of the most underrated signings, at least as of this writing in the Premier League transfer window, has been that of midfielder James Maddison to Tottenham Hotspurs. The now former Leicester City man was the Foxes’ saving grace last season despite relegation, so Spurs paying 40 million pounds for him can be quite the bargain. If new manager Ange Postecoglou can keep Harry Kane this summer, he could make a deadly attack with Son and Maddison.

Liverpool has had a somewhat active start in the transfer window so far. Jurgen Klopp’s side has been trying to upgrade their midfield and have done so with Argentinian midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, paying the 35 million release clause he had with Brighton, although there are reports that if certain clauses are met, the fee could rise to 55 million pounds.

The Reds have also signed Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai. The now former RB Leipzig man made a name for himself in recent years because of his goalscoring abilities and his technical ability, which has resulted in Klopp taking a liking of him and this is why Liverpool have paid 60 million pounds, according to reports.

However, perhaps the club that has made the most interesting moves in the transfer window in England so far have been Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s team fell short when it came to challenging for the English Premier League title last season, ending up in second place, and now the Spanish manager has taken a chance on German attacker Kai Havertz, paying Chelsea a total of 65 million pounds, which has been viewed as a bit of a risk, considering the former Bayer Leverkusen man’s recent performances.

The Gunners are also close to signing West Ham’s Declan Rice, one of the most prominent midfielders in the league, with a fee of 100 million pounds, thus becoming the most expensive English player in the competition’s history.

As of this writing, these are some of the most prominent signings in the English Premier League so far.
