Exactly what was missing: the big transfers of the summer in the Premier League Israel today


Holland arrived to solve Pep's hole at the edge, Nunes will step into Mane's shoes and Martinez arrives to stabilize the Manchester United defense • Daniel Levy summarizes the five biggest transfers this summer in English football

Darwin Nunes - 75 million euros: from Benfica to Liverpool

As soon as Sadio Mane left for Bayern Munich, Jurgen Klopp realized that he needed a proper replacement, and Derwin Nunes, who scored last year at Anfield in a Benfica uniform and had an impressive breakout season, was the perfect solution for the German.

At the beginning of the summer in Thailand, Uruguay seemed to be in shock, but then came the quartet against Leipzig and the great performance against Manchester City in the Community Shield.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson - two of the best defenders in the world - will have a high target to pick up balls to, Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz can benefit from a physical presence that attracts defenders and will get space, and the South American blood that is always well received at Anfield, has already made the fans fall in love with the sturdy Uruguayan.

And first trophy 😜

Erling Holland - 60 million euros: from Dortmund to Manchester City

The fact that Manchester City won four championships in the last five seasons does not hide two important facts: Pep Guardiola, even without bringing the team the first Champions Cup, managed to do magic even though he didn't really have a formidable 9 striker.

He found solutions, diverted connections to the simulated striker position, but he also knew that to make the step jump he needed a wide animal.

Holland, who scored 86 goals in 89 appearances for Dortmund in two and a half years, was under the pursuit of quite a few prestigious clubs, but largely because of his father who also played for City, Pep won the race, at a bargain price in today's years.

An embarrassing foul in the game from the charity defender has already caused commentators and fans to laugh at him online, but it's not often you laugh at someone you fear - and England's defenses have plenty of reason to fear the Norwegian giant.

Richarlison - 58 million euros: from Everton to Tottenham

The arrival of Antonio Conte to Tottenham in the middle of the past season stimulated the team that managed to finish in the top four and received a ticket to the Champions League.

The owner of the club, Daniel Levy, decided to give back to the Italian, with six signings, Risharlison being the most expensive and the best of them.

Spurs are looking to improve the quality and depth of their forward line and the Brazilian, who scored 53 goals in 152 appearances over four seasons at Goodison Park, could complete a formidable front three alongside Jung Min Son and Harry Kane.

The versatility in the roles he can play, the willingness to chase after defenders, the help in the pressing game and the speed, are things that Conte likes very much and it is very possible that they will cause Tottenham to fight for the title.

Lisandro Martins – 57 million euros: from Ajax to Manchester United

Eric Tene Jr. arrived this summer to rebuild the Red Devils and knew he had to start at the back.

He put the biggest money on who he coached in recent years at the Amsterdam Arena.

Ten Haah will put a lot of weight on the shoulders of the 24-year-old Argentine.

Martins will have to stop the opponents, give security to Harry Maguire, of whom the fans are tired;

To use his technical ability to help build attacks, and inject a fighting spirit that seems to have been lost from the DNA at Old Trafford.

"He's a fantastic guy, with a good temper and a winning mentality. For coaches, these are great players to work with," said former stopper Jaap Stam, one who knew tremendous years with the red shirt.

Raheem Sterling - came from Manchester City to Chelsea - 56 million euros

337 games in which he scored 131 goals and added 94 assists did not make City fight for Sterling and the big beneficiary is the London rival.

The fact that Thomas Tuchel prefers a dynamic attacking unit that is less based on a classic striker 9 like the failed Romelu Lukaku is a good thing for the 27-year-old Englishman, who has often played as a mock "9" for Pep and has done his job properly.

Under Guardiola, Sterling's technical understanding has improved tremendously and his finishing in front of goal has become much more purposeful.

He finished the last season with 17 goals and 9 assists in all competitions and there is still the feeling that he can do much more, he just needs to gain confidence.
