Premier League's 5 best signings of the season so far
With the January transfer window open, Premier League clubs are trying to add to the quality of their teams. Over the long summer window in June, July and August teams did the same. Since then, some players have struggled to settle to demands of arguably the most competitive league in the world, while others have hit the ground running.
The successful players look like money well spent, fantastic investments for the future of the individual club. So who are these players who have begun life in the English Premier League in the best of ways? Who are the players that fans have now become to love in the colours of their team?.
Let's have a look at the five best Premier League signings of the 2018/2019 season so far.
Felipe Anderson (West Ham)
The 25-year-old Brazilian gold medal winner was brought to East London and the Olympic Stadium for a club record transfer of about £35 million. Manuel Pellegrini's revolution at West Ham did not get off to the best of starts losing the first four league fixtures making them early relegation favourites.
However, the team was able to rally behind the quality of their new signings and shoot up the Premier League table with some impressive results. Victories against both Manchester United and Arsenal as well as holding Chelsea to a goalless draw made the rest of the league sit up and take notice of the Irons.
A big part of this success is down to Felipe Anderson, the former Lazio and Santos playmaker has eight goals and two assists in his first season in the Premier League. Sharing his fair share of nutmegs along the way, he has had a Dimitri Payet-like impact on the West Ham left wing.
