The 5 winners of the Premier League transfer market

As the Premier League transfer window edges closer and closer to its deadline, plenty of clubs are looking to seal their remaining deals in order to start the season off as well as possible. However, whilst plenty of Premier League clubs have shown their status in the market by getting lots of players, there are several others that have not managed to get the players that they wanted.

Today, we will be covering those teams that have had the best transfer window so far, with only two days remaining in the Premier League transfer window for the summer.

1. Liverpool FC

Liverpool have excelled during the whole window, strengthening all of the positions that they are weak in, whilst also adding some much needed depth to their slim squad. The world record arrival of Alisson from AS Roma will surely bring a new feel to the team, as they now have a goalkeeper that they should be able to rely on. Naby Keita and Fabinho will be powerhouses in midfield, taking over from some of the club's deadwood such as James Milner. Xherdan Shaqiri will also be of great aid to the squad, especially at the bargain price of just £12 million that they got him for. Apart from this, they have also managed to keep their attacking trio at the club, despite lots of interest by clubs from abroad.

2. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves have managed to have an incredible transfer window, as apart from retaining their key men that led to their Championship triumph last season such as Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota, they have also added some immense quality in order to add to the squad depth. Some of the major signings include Adama Traore, Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio, all players that will slot into the first eleven easily. The main reason why the club has managed to pull off such incredible transfers is due to Jorge Mendes being employed as the club's agent, attracting several top names in football to the club.

3. Fulham FC

The newly-promoted side have secured some of the most surprising, yet outstanding signings of the window. The club managed to take Jean Michael Seri from the noses of several top clubs for a very cheap price tag, whilst also getting the renowned Andre Schurrle on a two-year loan. Fulham also secured the signing of Aleksandar Mitrovic from Newcastle, after he impressed on his loan spell last season. Apart from this, they also brought in Alfie Mawson from Swansea, who were relegated last season, yet Mawson was one of their best players during the whole season. The fact that they managed to keep club captain Tom Cairney at the club will also be a massive boost, as he is their main playmaker in the squad, and the players will look towards him for experience.

4. Arsenal FC

Arsenal have also purchased players very intelligently, strengthening the core of their squad whilst also getting some more squad depth. They have shored up their defence nicely, through the signings of Sokratis and Stephan Lichtsteiner, who will both bring in plenty of much needed experience at the back. Apart from this, through the signing of Lucas Torreira, they have finally got a midfielder that is ready to sit in front of the defence and dictate the play. The signing of Bernd Leno will also help the club a lot, as Petr Cech is not getting any younger, whilst David Ospina cannot always be relied on. Their sole negative of this window is that they have lost Jack Wilshere to West Ham for free, as when he is fit, he can be one of the best midfielders in the league.

5. West Ham United

West Ham have probably had the best window of the lot, with plenty of high-profile players joining the club over the summer. The two main signings in attack are Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko, two wingers that are very versatile and have plenty of experience in Europe that will add a new flow to their attack. As previously mentioned, Jack Wilshere joined the club and will surely greatly improve the midfield, adding some needed pace and class in the middle. The goalkeeping crisis that West Ham had last season seems to be solved through the signing of the ever-reliable Lukasz Fabianski, who although was relegated last season, had a fantastic season personally, keeping Swansea in several games.

The question is, who do you think had the best window out of the five mentioned here? Be sure to leave your thoughts on our Facebook page!
