The Premier League Signing Of The Summer: An Early Look

It’s very early to say who might be the Premier League’s best signing this summer. After all, we’re only four games into the season. But there are already a number of new signings sticking their head above the parapet and catapulting their team to early success.

For the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, the rewards are already coming, like they’ve hit the jackpot on the best online slots from only one spin. Meanwhile, the likes of Aston Villa have made the most of the money received for Jack Grealish. But who are the signings of the summer?

Cristiano Ronaldo

There were plenty of teams looking to gamble on an ageing Cristiano Ronaldo, with you able to spin the sort of roulette wheel you’d find on and try to determine where he’d end up. Real Madrid, PSG, sides in the US and China, as well as Manchester City were all in the mix. But of course, it’s the red side of Manchester where he considers home and what a signing he’s already proven to be.

He’s netted three in two games and really lifted the Old Trafford side. Title contenders? With Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho having also arrived, to signings of the summer contenders in their own right, we think so.

Ibrahima Konate

Liverpool desperately needed to strengthen their defensive portfolio this time last year but failed to do so, and it cost them. Such mistakes haven’t been made this year though and they’ve splashed out £36 million on RB Leipzig’s Ibrahima Konate.

He’ll be an excellent partner for Virgil Van Dijk as well as bolstering their ranks which also include Joel Matip and Joe Gomez. He’s just the player Liverpool needed this summer to get back on track as title contenders.

Romelu Lukaku

Are Chelsea the best side in the Premier League right now? There’s certainly argument for it. The Blues have been incredibly strong since Thomas Tuchel took over and a goalscorer looked to be the final piece of the jigsaw. And boy have they signed one.

Lukaku signed from Inter for £97.5 million and he’ll prove to be worth every penny. He’s netted three in three so far in the league and there is no doubt Chelsea will be pushing for top spot come the end of the season such is the talent in that squad.
