Premier League Transfer Poll – Which Signing Was Better? (16 players)

Every fan knows the transfer value of a player is no guarantee for how successful they’ll be. Signing that missing piece can be more art than science.

For every N’Golo Kante, arriving at Leicester for £5.6million, there’s a £25million Morgan Schneiderlin being signed at the same time elsewhere. (Ed Woodward look away).

The odd flop here and there certainly isn’t going to stop clubs from spending though! Last summer alone, Premier League clubs splashed a reported £1.4billion on bringing in new players. With over 95 new arrivals, that mammoth sum eclipsed the previous year’s spending by £158million (stats courtesy of Sky Sports News).

Now, to be fair players aren’t able to control the transfer fee they get signed for. And we often need a second, even third season sometimes to be able to truly judge their impact.

Hindsight is 20/20. So, with a year and a half’s worth of performances to take in already we’ve gone back and put together a selection of 18/19 summer signings. Some have already paid their weight in goals while others continue to keep warm on the bench.
