The Premier League transfer window will close tomorrow at 5pm BST. Most clubs have made their purchases and sales and look ready for the new season. There are still others though, who may yet make that one final move as they look to iron out the chinks in their squad.
The Premier League has seen several high-profile signings on the deadline day in the past and there is no reason to believe that the same can’t happen by tonight or tomorrow. Huge stars such as Phil Coutinho, Paulo Dybala and Neymar continue to be linked with Premier league sides. We will have to wait and see what happens tomorrow. For now, we can sit back and look at the 5 best Summer signings on the Premier League transfer deadline day.
Mesut Ozil (Real Madrid to Arsenal)
Mesut Ozil has received a lot of flak in Arsenal off late. However, he was at his peak when he moved to Arsenal and continued to do the same at North London. Ozil joined the Gunners on 2nd September 2013 for £42.5 million (€50 million) making him the most expensive German football player of all time.
His transfer drew the ire of many Real Madrid players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, who wanted him to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, Ozil has said that he did not have the faith of his bosses at Real. While Arsene Wenger had offered him the respect he desired.
With 13 assists and 7 goals in his first season at the Emirates, it is safe to say that Ozil repaid Wenger’s faith in full. He has since made 142 appearances for the Gunners, finding the back of the net 27 times and helping them win two FA cups. But more importantly, he has created more than 500 goal scoring opportunities for his teammates!
