The summer transfer period is that stage where teams take a look back at their season and work on their weaknesses. The window is the perfect time for a team to correct the shortcomings to ensure a better next season. 

Fans eagerly wait for their team to get active in the market and make acquisitions that they feel would strengthen their team and make them achieve their objectives, no matter how big or small. 

But, unfortunately, during the spending spree, clubs often make certain transfers which just don’t click at the club. Sportskeeda brings to you five Premier League signings who turned out to have an extremely disappointing season. 

#5 Ahmed Musa

Claudio Ranieri knew that title defence would be a near impossible task for the Leicester team but the Italian still went out in the market to ensure that the club could give a stiff competition in the League. 

Musa was one of the high-profile stars roped in to aid Leicester’s cause. The former CSKA Moscow player shined during the preseason tour and delighted Leicester fans. The Nigerian player showed promise due to his speed and dribbling ability but it all went down the drain after some disappointing performances for the Foxes. 

The transfer did not work out at all and Leicester’s title defence couldn’t have been more shoddy. Despite having made 30 appearances for the team, the player has only 4 goals to show for. The player has shown glimpses of form but nothing solid has happened yet.
