There has been some tremendous business done in this transfer window already this summer, and we put together an ultimate XI.
Countless money has been spent on world class talent from all over the globe this summer in the Premier League. Here’s a look at the best possible XI, created from new signings only. We wonder how many of them will make it into the real ‘Team of the Year’ come next May?
Simon Mignolet takes the goalkeepers spot fairly easily. Unless Arsenal splash out big money on an experienced keeper, it is unlikely a team will spend more than the £9m Liverpool spent on the Belgian shot stopper.
Dejan Lovren is the star man in a relatively unknown defence. The Croatian centre-back joins Southampton from Lyon for £8.5m. Aston Villa’s Danish signing Jores Okore slots in beside him, with Man United’s new young right-back Guillermo Varela and Stoke’s Dutch international Erik Pieters filling the full-back berths.
The middle of the park looks fantastic, with Southampton’s new midfield signing Victor Wanyama battling alongside the box-to-box dynamism of Tottenham’s £17m Brazilian Paulinho.
Chelsea and Man City’s impressive recruits take up the attacking midfield spots. With Jesus Navas’s pace on the right, Andre Schurrle cutting in from the left, and Fernandinho dictating play from the middle, this side could tear teams apart.
Swansea’s record signing hitman Wilfried Bony starts up top, after his 36 goal season earnt him a £12m move to Swansea.
Players like Maarten Stekelenberg, Andy Carroll and Marco Van Ginkel were unlucky to miss out.
We can’t wait to see these new faces in action in August!
