The Best of the Premier League Transfer Window So Far

Even the mega rich world of football hasn’t been immune to the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic. This has been seen most clearly in the reluctance of most Premier League clubs to spend big in the 2020 summer transfer window.

However, with the start of the season edging closer we are starting to see more and more recruitment activity. But who exactly has done the best business so far? Our expert team at Betting.co.uk investigated…

Manchester City Out to Get Liverpool

After finishing well short of title winners Liverpool last season, Manchester City have wasted little time bolstering their squad this summer.

First, they poached Nathan Áke from relegated Bournemouth for a modest £40m. Áke may have been unable to prevent Cherries going down last season but the former Chelsea man is likely to offer City’s leaky defence greater solidity.

The Citizens have also moved for Valencia starlet Ferran Torres. Costing just £20m, this could prove to be one of the bargains of the window. The 20-year-old has sky high potential and will help Pep Guardiola fill his Leroy Sané shaped hole.

Promoted Clubs Have Strengthened 

Leeds United have returned to the top flight for the first time since 2004 and judging by the Whites’ excellent transfer business, they should be here to stay.

Whites striker Patrick Bamford was criticised for a lack of goals last season and United have addressed this problem by making a move for Rodrigo. The Spaniard cost a club record £27m and the fact he nearly moved to Barcelona back in February shows his quality.

Leeds have also brought in Robin Koch from Freiburg. The Germany international has long been one of the most underrated centre-backs in the Bundesliga and he will strengthen Marcelona Bielsa’s already stern back five.

Fulham, another side promoted to the Premier League last season, have also been busy. Scott Parker has brought in the likes of Harrison Reed and Mario Lemina to add some much needed steel to his midfield.

The signing of young left-back Antonee Robinson from Wigan Athletic could also be a shrewd move as he has bags of potential.

Chelsea Are Spending Big

By far the biggest winners of the transfer window so far have been Chelsea. In terms of attacking options, Timo Werner has been recruited from Champions League semi finalists RB Leipzig, while the creative Hakim Ziyech has made the switch from Ajax. These two additions give the Blues one of the most mouth-watering forward lines on the planet.

There’s also been some defensive reinforcements. England and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell has penned a five-year-deal and veteran Thiago Silva has also joined. Additionally, Malang Sarr has agreed terms but will spend the 2020/2021 season out on loan.

The five deals have cost around £130m in total which in the grand scheme of things isn’t actually that bad. Expect Frank Lampard’s Blues to be challenging at the top of the Premier League table next campaign.
