 1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

On a free from PSG you cannot complain. He has a big personality and Jose will use that influence in the dressing room. He is an enigma and a quality player. Already has 3 goals under his belt in the Premier League and is in the best shape of his life. Could easily score 15-20 for United this season. A steal really for the Red Devils.

 

  1. Nolito

This boy has slipped under the radar for many people. He fits the profile of a Pep Guardiola player; fast, attacking, aggressive and good passer of the ball. Scored two at Stoke the other week and likely to score a few more this season. He only cost a mere £13.8 million and in today’s market that is a bargain.

 

  1. Victor Wanyama

How Southampton let him go for only £11 million is anyone’s guess. He is a solid and consistent player. He fits the Spurs system perfectly, shields the centre backs so the likes of Danny Rose and Kyle Walker can bomb forward. He will be vital in the Champions League for Spurs. A goal to his name already, things can only get better for Victor at White Hart Lane.

 

  1. N’Golo Kante

‘70% of the earth is covered by water, the rest is covered by N’Golo Kante’. That is the best quote I saw to describe the talent of Kante last season. He is a machine in the middle of the park, his ability to tackle and win the ball back for his team is second to none. He provides vital cover for John Terry and Gary Cahill at the back for Chelsea, he knows when to drop in and knows when to use his pace to save his centre backs. It is 32 million well spent by Chelsea.

 

  1. Jack Wilshere

This remains to be seen, but I think it is pure madness- in a good sense. How have a club like Bournemouth attracted Jack Wilshere? Albeit on loan. It will be interesting to see how this pans out. The Cherries played such attractive attacking football last year and are yet to get the flow to their play this year. Eddie Howe will be hoping Jack can get them playing again. Eddie Howe is good for Jack Wilshere and he is a perfect fit for Bournemouth to try and resurrect this career.
