The summer transfer window is about to start in a few months’ time. The 2020/21 season in Premier League has highlighted many successful transfers. Here are the top five transfers in the Premier League this season.
#1 Ruben Dias – Benfica to Manchester City
Manchester City signed Portuguese defender, Ruben Dias, for a reported transfer fee of 68 million euros. Dias has arguably been the best defender in the league this season and a huge shout for the PFA awards. City has conceded the least number of goals this season and also kept the most number of clean sheets in the Premier League and it highlights the impact made by the Portuguese national.
Manchester City has lost only 4 games in all competitions this season and their stability at the back has returned this season after leaking goals last season. Dias has formed an excellent partnership with John Stones.
#2 Emiliano Martinez – Arsenal to Aston Villa
Former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has been a sensational signing for Aston Villa this season. The Argentine has kept the second-highest clean sheets in the league this season. Martinez has been the best player for Villa this season after their captain Jack Grealish and the keeper’s impact has been huge this season. Martinez has been great with his shot-stopping and won many crucial points for his side.
#3 Diogo Jota – Wolverhampton Wanderers to Liverpool
Diogo Jota has been an instant hit at his new club. The Portuguese has been scoring goals for fun this season but was a bit unlucky with his fitness issues. Jota has scored a combined 12 goals in the league and the UEFA Champions League and Liverpool struggled with scoring goals while he was sidelined. The 24-year-old scored a brace against Arsenal after coming on from the bench and sealed all three important points.
#4 Tomas Soucek – Slavia Prague to West Ham United
West Ham United signed Tomas Soucek for a fee of 19 million pounds and he has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. West Ham has been very fortunate with the midfield duo of Soucek and Declan Rice. The physical presence of Soucek in the opposition’s box has been a key factor for the Hammers. The 26-year-old has quite a few times this season for the Hammers.
#5 Wesley Fofana – Saint-Etienne to Leicester City
Wesley Fofana has been one of the best center-backs in the Premier League and has been massive for the foxes in the absence of Caglar Soyuncu. Fofana has a lot of potential and can prove to be a huge player for Leicester City in the coming seasons. The Frenchman has played in a three at a back as well as four at a back this season and his raw pace is a pretty good asset for a defender.
