Published 3 Comments

With the start of the 2015-2016 league season just four days away, there are a few new signings who will be playing in the Premier League for the first time. Here's a look at some of them.

Manchester United's new signings

Louis Van Gaal brought in midfield maestro Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayer Munich to bring stability, balance and much needed experience to his midfield. His vision and ability to control the game will play a huge part in Manchester United's title challenge.

21-year-old Dutchman, Memphis Depay was signed by the Red Devils this summer. The exciting young talent scored 22 goals in last season's Eredivisie and will bring some flair to United's lineup.

Matteo Darmian who was signed from Torino is a full-back who can play on both flanks. He is also great in an attacking perspective and with United looking to attack down the channels more this season, Darmian seems to be a good fit.

The Ayew brothers

Andre and Jordan Ayew have both moved to the Premier League this season. Left-winger Andre who played for Marseille was signed on a free transfer by Swansea City while younger brother Jordan was brought in to replace Christian Benteke at Aston Villa.

There have been quite a few Dutch players signed by Premier League clubs before the start of this season.

Georginio Wijnaldum is an attacking midfielder who will be playing for Newcastle United in the coming season.

Ronald Koeman has signed midfielder Jordy Clasie to bolster his midfield. Clasie has been labelled as the 'Dutch Xavi' because of his style of play. His short passes, ball interceptions and set-pieces will be of much use to Southampton.

Jeremain Lens who plays as an attacking midfielder or a winger was signed by Sunderland from Dynamo Kyiv. Dick Advocaat brings him in for his creativity and also his goal-scoring abilities.

Other key signings

Roberto Firmino was signed by Liverpool from German club, Hoffenheim. An attacking midfielder, Firminho is a good dribbler with an eye for a through ball and will bring some quality to Liverpool's forward play.

West Ham have signed Angelo Ogbonna and also Marseille's Dimitri Payet and they'll be hoping to improve on last season's finish. Ogbonna is a hard-tackling centre-back who was signed from Juventus. Payet is known for creating chances and made 17 assists in last season's Ligue 1. 

We will have to wait and see how much of an impact these new signings make on the English Premier League.
