GMS Academy member Louis Field runs down the top five Premier League signings this summer.
5. Roberto Soldado
Valencia's star striker knew his time was up at the club when a big offer from Tottenham Hotspur came in. Although he picked an unusual squad to go to, lacking Champions League qualification and top four spot, Tottenham seemed to be the club Soldado wanted to be at.
This looming giant striker has recently played parts in Spain‘s squad, playing in the Confederations Cup he proved himself a worthy man for the job at Spurs. A powerful strike as well as an incredible sight for goal, he is another Spaniard to join the Premier League, and an incredible signing for top four contenders Spurs.
With Gareth Bale soon to exit Tottenham, Soldado may have more work to do than he had bargained for however this is no problem for a man of his talent and calibre as not only can he score self willingly but he can also play a good ball when needed to, a quality signing for Andres Villas Boas.
4. Andre Schurrle
One man that didn't seem to be on everyone's top 5 this year is the 21-year-old German winger Andre Schurrle. Moving away from Bayern Leverkusen for a fee of £18 million to Stamford Bridge seemed to be overpriced for such an inexperienced player, however we know differently. This stylish winger creates attacking moves with his explosive pace and greedy eye for goal, which seems selfish enough, however Schurrle can drill in an accurate cross and corner to provide perfect assists for target men and poachers up front.
Schurrle being the only German in Moruinho's side means he lacks links with others that know his play, however knowing "The Special One" we're sure he can whip him into shape and show him the style the Premier League has to offer.
3. Wilfred Bony
Now this is one new player that it seems no one wants to discuss, however what is there not to discuss about this incredible force upfront. With Swansea looking to strengthen their squad, Laudrup has spent a hefty twelve million on the Ivorian, but it seems like it was money well spent. The top goalscorer in the Eredivisie League last season, this looming striker knows what to do when the ball is at his feet. With the ability to head the ball perfectly into the net as well, the twenty four year old is the perfect link for Michu to set the ball up to.
Being Laudrup's main signing this summer, Bony looks to be a target man for all wingers and play makers at Swansea, especially for players such as Michu, who may or may not be staying, Bony may also be his replacement.
2. Stefan Jovetic
Another City signing who seemed to be going elsewhere, Stefan Jovetic seemed to be an Arsenal man for sure, although City new a signing when they saw one. Pellegrini snatched up the young Montenegrin in no time at all and stuck him up front alongside his other summer signing Negredo. Fast and nippy, the ex-Fiorentina player has astonishing eye for goal, finishing creative moves and even starting some of his own, he is the perfect player to sit up front for City this season. As well as being a quality player, he is also only twenty three years old which leaves plenty of time to grow into an even better player than he already is.
A replacement he seems to be for Tevez, Jovetic should be seen on the top goalscorers next season as he helps Manchester City try and achieve another Premier League title over their vicious rivals.
1. Jesus Navas
Sevilla knew it was a matter of time before their star Spaniard was set to leave for the big leagues, however Manchester City never seemed to be top contenders for this nippy young lad. Short, fast, master passer and the ability to finish a creative move, Jesus Navas doesn't seem to be the player that wingless Manchester City seem to need, however £17 million pounds later, he has found himself a Manchester City player.
A genius link with class midfielder David Silva, Navas slots into Pellegrini's new City side perfectly and we can expect to see a rise in this young boy's talent playing at a top English side.
