The Premier League's newest talents
The summer transfer window has led to several teams bringing in new players from different leagues, all having a point to prove and to try and impress. The question is, out of the new signings, who looks set to impress the most? In order to answer this, I have compiled a list of the best five signings that have never played in the Premier League in my own opinion.
The talented Brazilian-born Italian midfielder looks set to take the Premier League by storm by partnering the ever-reliable N'golo Kante in midfield, to bring Chelsea the perfect balance in the middle of the park. Jorginho's exceptional range of passing, as well as his positioning will be crucial for Sarri's system. As seen throughout pre-season and in the Community Shield, Jorginho has already fitted in the squad very well and looks like he will be one of Chelsea's best players this season.
2. Bernd Leno
Leno comes into the Premier League having impressed massively in the Bundesliga over the course of several seasons with Bayer Leverkusen. The shot-stopper managed to save a total of nine penalties in the Bundesliga during his stay in the league, more than any other active goalkeeper in it. Apart from this, he is the sort of character that Arsenal really needed, as he is ready to take one for the team and put his body in danger circumstances just to save his team. With a relatively cheap transfer fee to his name, he will be under no pressure to impress, and will just do what he needs to do, something several Arsenal players have failed to do in the past.
3. Felipe Anderson
The skillful Brazilian came to West Ham from Lazio, after impressing with the Italian side for several seasons, yet in the last few seasons he was unsettled at the club and wanted a move abroad. He now has his chance to light up the Premier League, offering something completely different to West Ham on the wings, as they often lacked some trickery and pace in the team. He has impressed in pre-season, and will surely continue his fine form in the Premier League this season.
4. Alisson Becker
Brazil's number one goalkeeper looks set to solve Liverpool's main problem last season, after having a terrific season with AS Roma and performing well in the World Cup. He managed to have the second best save success rate in Europe last season, only being beaten by Jan Oblak. Apart from this, Alisson also managed to have an incredible average of 3.41 saves for every goal conceded, a stat that is only beaten by Oblak and De Gea.
5. Leander Dendoncker
Wolves' new signing, Dendoncker, had very mixed performances last season with Anderlecht, often impressing and being the main player in the squad, whilst also sometimes getting too hot-headed and receiving a total of 2 red cards. His talent is unquestionable, being capable of playing in midfield and in defence, as he breaks up play as calmly as ever. To a surprise of many people, Dendoncker is also a major threat going forward, with his heading often being unmatched by opposition defenders in the box. He is set to be a good signing for Wolves and his versatility will be of great use to them.
Who do you think will light up the Premier League the most this season?
