Well with most of the transfers this window already over I thought that I might as well rank my top five. Now let’s get into it. Short and snappy, I like it!
5. Jorginho to Chelsea
Maurizio Sarri is the new boss at Chelsea, which means that they will be playing Sarriball and Jorginho is a crucial part of that system. As a regista, Jorginho plays as the base for all the attacks, with great passing range and skill. The signing of Jorginho gives Chelsea one of the top three midfielders in the Premier League, which is not something to be sniffed at.
4. Stefan de Vrij to Internazionale
Stefan de Vrij was brilliant last year for Lazio, helping them reach a very respectable 5th in the league. He was a rock at the back for Lazio easily their best player along with Ciro Immobile. He will be a great signing for Inter, who will be a force to reckoned with this season.
3. William Carvalho to Real Betis
I have no idea how Real Betis managed to sign William Carvalho. Absolutely none. He is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and Betis is a mid-table team in Spain. They have pulled off a coup and expect them to better last season’s 6th.
2. Leon Goretzka to Bayern Munich
Getting your main domestic rival’s best player on a free transfer is good business in anyone’s books. Leon Goretzka is an amazing talent that was by far Schalke’s best player last year so of course Bayern brought him. But to get him on a free? That’s better than even Bayern could have expected.
1. Alisson Becker to Liverpool
Liverpool have been begging for a goalkeeper for years. With first Simon Mignolet and then Loris Karius they haven’t had one for years. But Alisson was easily the best goalkeeper in Serie A last season and I don’t see why he can’t carry over that form to the Premier League. They did pay a lot for him but trust me, it will be worth it.
