Many players have joined the Barclays Premier League this season from different leagues all over the world, as well as the lower divisions.
Most of the major signings, like Fernandinho and Andre Schurrle, don’t need much of an introduction; therefore this article will only cover players aged 20 and younger.
The players will be mentioned randomly and will not be in order of their talent or footballing ability. It will feature young players that have never played in the Premier League before, which means that they do not necessarily have to be signed during this transfer window.
Luis Alberto, 20 - £6.8 Million (From Sevilla to Liverpool)
Although the youngster has only played seven top division games for former club Sevilla, he has a lot of experience for both Sevilla and Barcelona B teams.
But for most players his age, this is a regular occurrence in Spain and should not be taken as a sign of lack of talent. Apparently, the £6.8million spent on the forward was a bargain as Los Rojiblancos are cash strapped.
Nathan Redmond, 19 - £3.2 Million (From Birmingham to Norwich City)
The speedy winger was actually with Birmingham during their last campaign in the Premier League, but failed to make any appearances in the top flight.
He looked like the best player in England’s disastrous Euro U21 campaign this summer and considering the high prices English players normally go for, £3.2million looks like an absolute steal.
His style is like a modern winger as he’s able to play on either flank and makes regular inward runs to give his teammates a good passing option.
Wilfried Zaha, 20 - £15 Million (From Crystal Palace to Manchester United)
The highly rated winger was signed in January by retired legend Sir Alex Ferguson, but will now have to prove himself to new Red Devils manager David Moyes.
By not sending the youngster out on loan, it’s likely that Zaha will have a few opportunities to prove himself.
Nonetheless, Manchester United have Nani, Antonia Valencia and Ashley Young, all seasoned professionals who will provide a lot of competition to the young winger.
Andreas Cornelius, 20- £8 Million (From Copenhagen to Cardiff City)
The 6’4 striker will definitely provide aerial power to the Cardiff attack. At £8million, he is the most expensive player that the Welsh side has ever signed.
Despite being only 20, there will be a lot of pressure on the colossal striker who bagged 20 goals in 44 appearances last season for Copenhagen. But, having been capped at international level seven times for Denmark, he might be able to cope with the burden placed upon him.
Yaya Sanogo, 20 - Free (From Auxerre to Arsenal)
Another huge striker who could potentially make an impact this season as he only has one central striker ahead of him in the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium.
Having won the U20 World Cup this past summer, the French striker will look to help the Gunners end their barren run of trophies.
Having played only 24 official matches for French Division 2 club Auxerre, he lacks experience, but there are very few managers that are more suited than Arsene Wenger in bringing up youngsters.
Guillermo Varela, 20 - £2.3 Million (From Penarol to Manchester United)
The full-back was David Moyes’ first signing this summer and will perhaps give Rafael some competition in the right-back department.
The youngster was part of the brave U20 Uruguay squad that went all the way to the final at the World Cup, defeating the likes of Spain and Nigeria.
After a brilliant summer the player will look to make an impression in England despite difficulties that he might encounter with settling in.
Gerard Deulofeu, 19- Loan (From Barcelona to Everton)
The Spanish youngster comes from the famous La Masia academy that has produced many world-class players, and he seems to have the potential to succeed.
Reports have also stated that loan fees would be waived should the prodigy be involved in more than 50% of Everton’s games. Should this prove to be true, we can expect to see Deulofeu in many matches under Roberto Martinez next season.
