The transfer season across Europe is in full effect as we approach the end of July. A good amount of deals have been made in the English Premier League already. Here are a list of the five best transfers made by English Premier League clubs so far.
By no means is the Serbian international a finish product, but his potential is through the roof. The new 20-year-old Liverpool FC attacker will hope to hone his skills and grow even further under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers. The former Benfica man is a quick attacker with a lot of technical skills.
The new Manchester United man had been the target of the Red Devils for some time. The Manchester club tried to sign Herrera in 2013, but there advances were rebuffed. One year later, United still undeterred by Herrera’s talents exercised his buy-out clause at Athletic Bilbao. Herrera is still a young talent who is a great passer, a strong tackler and a hard working midfielder.
With the free departure of Bacary Sagna to Manchester City, Arsenal made a quality signing in Mathieu Debuchy. The French international showed that he is a better right-back than Bacary Sagna by replacing him as the starter in the French national team at the 2014 World Cup. Debuchy already has two years of experience in the Premier League with Newcastle United.
Cesc Fabregas is a tried and tested player in the Barclays Premier League, and will be looking to improve his form from his time at Barcelona. Chelsea not only signed a great player in Fabregas, but they were able sign a player who was successful in their league. The former Barcelona man will be a great replacement for Frank Lampard in the Chelsea midfield.
Alexis Sanchez is a quick and versatile player with a penchant for scoring goals. The former Barcelona attacker is an elite level player who Arsenal fans have longed for, and Arsene Wenger has finally given that to them. Sanchez scored 19 goals for Barcelona last season; Arsenal fans should be excited about their new signing.
