Top 5 summer signings in the Premier League this season
We are already past the halfway mark of the 2018/19 season of the Premier League and by now, we tend to know how every new signing has fared for their respective clubs.
Right now, with the amount of money flowing in the Premier League, we are bound to see more failed signings than good ones. But, we have seen some very good and astute signings this season, both from the top 6 clubs and the mid-table sides.
So, without further ado, here are the top 5 summer signings of the Premier League this season:
#5 Raul Jimenez
Raul Jimenez was signed by Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan from Benfica in the summer. Jimenez has looked absolutely brilliant this season but remains criminally underrated. All the limelight in the Wolves' lineup has been taken by players like Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and co., while Jimenez has remained indispensable to Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
His hold-up play has been tremendous at times and much like Roberto Firmino of Liverpool, Jimenez likes to come deep and be involved in the play. His overall gameplay is what makes Wolves tick in attack and it has been his brilliant play with the ball at feet that has made Wolves such a dangerous counter-attacking side.
The kind of form he is in and the way he is playing this season, it would not be a surprise to see Wolves making the signing permanent.
In terms of stats in the Premier League this season, Jimenez has scored 10 goals and assisted 5. He averages a goal every 221 minutes.
