Jorge Luiz Frello Filho aka Jorginho – from Napoli to Chelsea FC
Nemanja Matic was sold to Manchester United, Chelsea’s rival football club last summer. Ever since his transfer, there has been a large hole to fill in Chelsea’s midfield.
Thankfully, Chelsea managed to sign Jorginho, an Italian football player born in Brazil. Jorginho has performed well in the 2017/18 league, so Chelsea fans can wait to see how well the team can perform this season.
He was signed to Chelsea for a whopping £57 million. Chelsea now has a total of 37 goals, 11 wins, 4 draws, and 3 loses. They will play against Crystal Palace on December 30 and Southampton FC next year.
Naby Keïta – from RB Leipzig FC to Liverpool FC
Naby, the captain of the Guinea national football team is one of the most outstanding midfielders in the Premier League. He is an all-around player who can definitely score and win ball possessions.
Liverpool had to wait for one year just to have Keita on the team. Now that he’s transferred from RB Leipzig, Liverpool FC has gained more edge against their rival teams.
Keita agreed on the transfer for £48 million. While fans expect so much from Liverpool’s new midfielder, Keita admits that it’s tough to be in the Premier League.
But, he also says that he’s motivated to play in the league because of the solid support he has been receiving from his team and manager.
Alisson Becker – from Roma to Liverpool FC
For 66.8 million, Alison Becker, Brazil’s top player and the world’s most in-demand goalkeeper agreed to transfer from Roma to Liverpool.
Fans felt delighted after hearing the news about Alisson Becker’s transfer signing. Punters who frequently compare sports odds felt more confident that The Reds can actually have a greater competitive edge over its current rivals – Man City FC.
Truly enough, Liverpool FC is leading the league with more than 48 points from the 18 matches they played.
In Liverpool’s most recently concluded game against Napoli, Becker made an astonishing save after denying the goal of Napoli’s striker, Arkadiusz Milik. While it was Salah who scored the winning goal, Becker stole the hearts of many Liverpool fans all over the globe.
Riyad Mahrez – from Leicester to Manchester City
After three bids and two transfer requests, finally, Manchester City has signed the PFA 2015/16 top player.
In the most recent interview of the Algerian winger, he said that his best form is yet to come as he tries to adjust to his new life in Manchester City as well as the strict system of Pep Guardiola.
He also shared how it important it is for the team to continue doing well because every score drop places them in slight disadvantage over their closest rival, Liverpool FC.
Hs massive contribution to the current standing of Manchester City despite playing with the rest of the team for only a couple of months goes to show that he is truly a worth-it investment.
Richarlison de Andrade – from Watford to Everton
For 40 million, the 21-year old Richarlison signed the transfer from Warford to Everton.
Richarlison made rounds all over the internet after fans learned about his life story. In an interview, he shared how he copied Neymar’s hairstyle and borrowed football boots.
He first showed signs of his football skills and
technique last season when he played for Watford. However, his four assists and
five goals from his 32 league games can’t help fans think that Everton gambled
a lot of money on him.
Only time can tell if Richarlison’s transfer will end up in a nightmare or a sweet triumph. So far, he has been contributing a lot to Everton’s success. In Everton’s match against Newcastle United, Richarlison showed his football prowess by scoring an equalizing goal.
As of now, Everton ranks 11th in the league with 6 wins, 6 losses, 6 draws, and 24 goals. The club ended in the 8th rank during the previous season with 13 wins, 10 draws, 15 losses and 49 goals.
