Yet another Transfer deadline day is behind us and as we get used to, many players have switched their clubs in the last minutes. Usually some huge transfers are done until the “bell” rings, and while it can be said that it was very excited this time as well, we can’t say there was a so big transfer that could keep the talks for several days.
As usually Premier league clubs were the most active ones, splashing money wherever they could, ending summer transfer window with a record breaker total fee of more than £1.2 billion. Insane money, which could ruin the football in general for the future.
One of the biggest deals is a return of David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain to Chelsea on a three-year deal. Next to him, Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United signed for Totteham Hotspur in a £30m worth deal, while Sissoko has signed five-year deal with the Spurs. Tottenham was very active and thus the Spurs have signed for £11m Georges-Kevin Nkoudou from the Ligue 1 side, Marseille.
Sunderland splashed £13.6m fro Didier Ndong from while the Black Cats missed an opportunity to sign the goalkeeper from Boavista or Lovre Kalinic from Hajduk Split. Today many were surprised with the Blues rumours about Marcos Alonso’s interest, but the same in the end was completed as Chelsea have paid £24m for his service.
Luis Alberto joined Lazio and the Reds have earned £6m for that transfer. Serge Gnabry from Arsenal has joined Werder Bremen in a undisclosed fee. Bruno Martins Indi on a loan joined the EPL club, Stoke City from Porto Fc. West Brom have won the race for signature of the 27-year-old Robson-Kanu who signed a two-year deal.
Jack Wilshere from Arsenal on a season loan has joined Bournemouth, while on the same deal Enner Valencia moved to Everton from West Ham United. The reigning EPL Champions, Leicester City on a five-year deal have signed Algeria striker Islam Slimani for an undisclosed fee. Lazar Markovic from Liverpool on a season loan joined Sporting Lisbon.
Joe Hart from Manchester City joined the Serie A side, Torino, on a season loan. From Chelsea Juan Cuadrado extended his loan to Juventus, now signing a three-year loan deal. From Manchester City on a season loan Samir Nasri joined Sevilla, while Wilfried Bony did the same but he joined Stoke City. The Citizens on the same deal left Mangala who joined La Liga side, Valenca.
Mario Balotelli has left Liverpool and joined Ligue 1 club Nice on a free transfer, The Argentine Garay swaps Zenit for Valencia, Nikola Maksimovic from Torino signed for Napoli. A bad boy or Super Mario Balotelli signed for Nice on permanent deal.
From before Barcelona signed Valencia striker Alcacer for €30m. Arsenal have completed the signing of forward Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna and the 27-year-old defender Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia.
