The Barclays Premier league is hands down the toughest division of soccer in the world, from top to bottom. There are no powerhouses like Barcelona and Real Madrid that hold the rest of the league hostage. So each year there is a whole slew of players itching to join the ranks, and so far, this year has been no exception. These are the five biggest outside-the-BPL players to come to England for the 2014-15 season.
Markovic isn’t a big-name signing, and he surely won’t cover the loss of Suarez, but he’s young, talented and will have every opportunity to succeed at Anfield.
In typical Chelsea fashion, they broke the bank to bring in as many world-class players as possible. Luis will cover the loss of Ashley Cole.
I’m still convinced this will be a bust, but until we see how he plays, no one can say. Costa is a hulking offensive figure and he’ll be spearheading an already dangerous Chelsea attack.
This move is going to make Arsenal fans sick, but hopefully Sanchez can alleviate that sickness. Fabregas is one of the best in the world and Chelsea will benefit immensely from "Captain Fantastic" running their game from midfleid.
In what’s already being called the marquee Arsene Wenger signing, Alexis Sanchez could have an immense impact on the FA Cup champs. He will no doubt play a huge part in any trophy runs they’ll hope to make in the 2014-15 season.
