Top Transfers of the Summer Transfer Window So Far

The summers transfer race is heating up with records set to be broken. Gareth Bale is rumored to be considering a move to Real Madrid, as well as Soldado recently signing for the London club, there are some transfers which have stood out from the crowd so far. But probably the most impressive signings so far this summer in the Premier League have come from the mid-table clubs. Nobody knows for sure what is going to arise in the next few weeks, but below are 5 of the most interesting transfers to date: 
 
Jonjo Shelvey from Liverpool to Swansea, fee: £5mil 

Shelvey has proved to be a stable player for the Liverpool side. However, after a weak performance at the Under 21’s European Championship with the England squad, and the like of Coutinho now taking an active role in Liverpool first choice team, it seems Shelvey was put on the back burner by the Reds and has had to go and peddle his trade elsewhere.  Swansea will be going to the Europa league after their victory in the Capital One Cup and he could add the depth that the Welsh side needs.

 

Steven Caulker from Tottenham Hotspurs to Cardiff, fee: £8mil

 

Caulker is an England international defender; he previously spent a season on loan at the Welsh side in the 2011-12 seasons and played 26 games. He scored against Sweden in his only appearance for England. He was tipped as being a new ‘Ledley King’ but his career didn’t seem to pan out that way at the London Club. His move should see him with regular football at his new club. He could prove to be a huge bargain for Cardiff, as he is still very young, and could really help Cardiff by steering them away from the relegation zone.

Victor Wanyama from Celtic to Southampton, fee £12.5mil

 

There has been speculation over Wanyama moving to the Premier League for quite a while now, most notably when he was linked to Manchester United in January, after a few scintillating Champion’s League performances. He is the first player from his native country to play in the Premier League. The Kenyan commanded the large fee but he will most definitely add power and talent to what will be one of the stronger mid table midfields, also featuring the likes of Lallana and Ramirez. Wanyama’s move has been surrounded by excitement and the fans are looking forwards to seeing what he can bring to the club.

Ricky van Wolfswinkel from Sporting Lisbon to Norwich, fee £8.5mil

 

Norwich have managed to bring some decent names to the club to give them a boost this season. Sporting Lisbon had a terrible season finishing 7th however the Sporting Lisbon star man (Van Wolfswinkel) managed to hit the new 14 times. The Dutchman who was looking for European football appears to be a good signing by Norwich where he can add experience and depth to the clubs current squad.

  1. I agree with the 4 you picked; I don’t know why a bigger team didn’t take a chance on Wanyama, Caulker and Shelvey are surely good enough and young enough to still be playing at their respective previous clubs and van Wolfswinkel was a very nice pick up by Norwich. However is it me or did you only name four? Or am I just missing something?

What do you think?
