From players that were overpriced, to ones that have simply flattered to deceive - Victor Palsson takes a look at the Premier League's most overrated wingers. 

5. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Altough Oxlade-Chamberlain is still only 19-years-old, he has been hyped to be much more than he truly is. The England international is a good player don't get me wrong, but I believe Arsenal have simply got another Theo Walcott on their hands.

4. Charles N'Zogbia

After putting on some good performances for Wigan Athletic during their 2010/2011 season, N'Zogbia was bought by Aston Villa for €11million. 

Since joining Villa, N'Zogbia has managed 58 games for the club, scoring six goals. With his performances being okay at best, N'Zogbia has yet to prove why he was linked with a move to both Arsenal and Liverpool in 2010.

3. Ashley Young

After a promising first season at Manchester United, Young's second season at United was not much to remember. 

Young made 21 appearances for United last season without scoring a single goal. Also being labelled as one of England's worst players during Euro 2012.

2. Nani

When Nani has a top game, he truly looks like a world-class player, but nowadays that seems to be pretty rare. He is incredibly talented but has had two good seasons at Manchester United and that does not reflect on the €25.5million United paid for him. 

Tipped to be Cristiano Ronaldo's replacement, I feel as though Nani hasn't got close to what was expected of him.

1. Adel Taarabt

After being voted the Championship's Player of the Year in 2011, Taarabt was linked with a move to Europe's biggest clubs. 

Since joining the Premier League, Taarabt has simply disappeared. With seven goals and 10 assists in two seasons for QPR, Taarabt has never shown his true colours in the top-flight, and now faces another season in the second tier, if he fails to negotiate a prospective loan move to west London rivals Fulham.
