Ranking the seven ix big Premier League summer striker signings.
The striker has always been perhaps the most important player in a team – so it is no surprise that so much money was invested on them by Premier League teams during the summer window. When looking for the best capture, there are seven clear candidates, but this is how we would rank the top buys.
7) Romelu Lukaku (Everton)
So far this season, the mere act of signing Romelu Lukaku by Everton has been more impressive than the contribution of Romelu Lukaku himself, although we are in no doubt that the Belgian will refind the form of last season eventually. Some of the other names in this list are perhaps making the fee invested in Lukaku look a little on the high side, but he is also still extremely young.
