The biggest bargains of the summer transfer window, including Manchester United, Leicester and Arsenal stars


0

Premier League clubs spent a mammoth £1.4billion on new players during the summer transfer window.

Some of those expensive signings have hit the ground running while other have yet to justify those exorbitant price tags.

Despite the huge sums being spent there were still bargains to be had.

Here at talkSPORT.com, we have taken a look at who got the best deals over the summer.

Daniel James

Swansea to Man United (£15million)

James looks like an absolute steal and has really hit the ground running at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old’s electric pace for Manchester United has been one of the few highlights in their poor start to the season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He is joint top Premier League scorer at the club this season with three goals in eight total appearances, level with Marcus Rashford.

The Wales international looks like a player who United could, and should, try and build their future around.

Jordan Ayew

Swansea to Crystal Palace (£2.5million)

Crystal Palace are already seeing dividends for the permanent signing of Ayew from Swansea.

The forward has three goals in seven games to start the season and has helped the Eagles to sixth in the Premier League.

The decision to sign Ayew was derided at the time but even if his form dips off later in the season they have seen value for money.

Gary Cahill

Chelsea to Crystal Palace (free)

Another shrewd piece of business by Roy Hodgson was to pick up Cahill on a free transfer.

Not only are Palace sixth but they also have conceded just eight goals, which is the joint-fourth best record in the league.

They may have lost Aaron Wan-Bissaka over the summer but that has not stopped them from being strong defensively.

Youri Tielemans

Monaco to Leicester (£35million)

Leicester have been flying this season and are up to fourth in the Premier League.

They were slightly unlucky to not get at least a point against Liverpool on Saturday but for a late James Milner penalty.

Tielemans was superb last season on loan and has continued that to this campaign.

They may have paid £35million for the midfielder but he is still only 22 and do not be surprised to see him go for double that if he continues on the same trajectory.

Sebastien Haller

Eintracht Frankfurt to West Ham (£45million)

Stick with me on this one.

Yes, £45m is a lot of money and Haller was West Ham’s record signing but if you look at the wider context of this signing and he looks like good value for money.

The 25-year-old has scored four goals in seven Premier League appearances and has been superb for the Hammers.

A striker who can score you 20 goals a season would well be worth £45m.

His old Frankfurt team-mate, Luka Jovic moved to Real Madrid for £54m over the summer but has so far yet to score.

Dani Ceballos – Real Madrid to Arsenal (loan)

Arsenal have not had much luck with loan signings from LaLiga. Just remember how poor Denis Suarez was last season from Barcelona then you get the picture.

Dani Ceballos looks to be the complete opposite and already has two assists in eight total Premier League appearances.

The 23-year-old could play a greater role as the season progresses, especially with Mesut Ozil ostracised from the team, as they look to secure Champions League football.
