Premier League boasts some of the richest clubs on the planet. With a number of players moving to the Premier League and over €1 billion being spent this transfer window, let us take a look at the top five signings of the summer on the basis of their performances in their current clubs.


Alisson Becker (Liverpool)

It looks like The Reds have finally solved their goalkeeper woes. Five goals conceded in 13 games, Liverpool have the meanest defence in the league alongside defending champions Manchester City.


Signed for €73m, making him the most expensive goalkeeper of all time before it was broken by Kepa Arrizabalaga, Alisson's presence has restored some order from the dark days of Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius being then No.1. Liverpool's defence seems more relaxed with Alisson protecting their goal.


Joao Moutinho (Wolverhampton)



He may be the big surprise in this list but you don’t get a player of Moutinho's class and experience for just £5m. One goal and one assist in 12 games, he may not have the stats to back him up. But he’s not there to score goals and up his stats.


With his presence in the side, there is some much needed steel and experience in the middle of the park. Wolves have started brightly this season and much of it is owed to the signing of the Portuguese. Definitely, a bargain of the season.



Jorginho (Chelsea)


The epitome of ‘Sarriball’. Jorginho followed his manager Maurizio Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea, for £57m. Sarri knows Jorginho well, how he plays and what he wants to do. Sarri is the reason Jorginho rejected Manchester City after being linked to them heavily.


But after the  0-0 draw to Everton and the recent loss to Spurs, Sarri's secret may have been exposed. Stop Jorginho and you stop Chelsea, which just shows the importance of the young Italian. Chelsea were unbeaten this season till their 3-1 defeat last night and Jorginho was instrumental to their unbeaten run. Like Moutinho, he may not have the stats to back him, but Jorginho’s presence is what gets Chelsea ticking.

Richarlison (Everton)



Signed for €40m, Richarlison has been an absolute revelation. Six goals in 11 games, earning a call-up to the national team, Everton’s record signing has reignited their attack, after their below-par finish last season.


Good eye for goal and relentless work ethic, he has already won over the fans for his performances so far. He has had to change his position to a number nine due to Everton's failure  to find a prolific scorer and he has flourished in his new role. At 21, he is one of the most exciting prospects in English football and his value is sky-rocketing.

Lucas Torreira (Arsenal)



At £26m, Torreira is a ball-winning midfielder Arsenal have been crying for years. An impressive world cup, where he played a crucial role in Uruguay's run to the quarter-finals, sealed his move to the Gunners.


His impact has made a huge difference to Emery's side. Arsenal’s two defeats in the league came in the first two games of the season, when Torreira was named on the bench. After cementing his name in the starting XI, Arsenal have been an entirely different side, staying unbeaten for 11 games in the league. At 22, he can only get better and with his performances so far, his price is definitely a bargain.
