EPL Best & Worst Summer Transfer Windows: July 23

By Achyut Dixit

Best transfer window:

Tottenham Hotspur-

Arrivals - Richarlison ($63.80m), Yves Bissouma ($32.12m), Djed Spence ($16.17m), Perisic (Free), Fraser Forster (Free) and Clement Lenglet (Loan)

Significant Departures- Steven Bergwin ($34.38m), Cameron Carter-Vickers ($7.70m)

Daniel Levy has fulfilled Antonio Conte’s demand after the Italian managed the team to a top four finish last season. Wingback position, one of the most important positions in Conte’s system, has been strengthened by the arrival of two quality players in different phases of their respective careers. Perisic brings leadership, vast experience and is familiar with Conte’s system and demands. In Djed Spence (21 years old), Tottenham have bought an exciting prospect who was very impressive during his loan spell at Nottingham Forest last season.   

The addition of Bissouma at a very good price has the potential to be one of the best signings of the window. The Mali international will bring aggressiveness and ball progression to the midfield and is capable of great performances in big moments. Lenglet’s career has been on a downfall but this gives him a chance to revive it. If the Frenchmen finds his best self in London, he would be an improvement over Ben Davies for the LCB position.

In Richarlison, they get a Prem proven striker, and his versatility will improve Conte’s options for the front line immensely as the Brazilian can play anywhere in a front 3. Fraser Forster is also an experienced addition and will at least push Lloris more than Gollini was able to last season.

After being heavily backed, Conte will be looking at a top-4 finish as bare minimum. The North London club is -150 on Betway to finish inside the top four.

Worst transfer windows:

Leicester City:

No new arrivals and no significant departures.

Leicester are the only EPL team to not sign a player in the transfer window. It seems like the decision makers for the Foxes are backing the signings from the 2021 summer to make their mark in the upcoming season. However, no step is a step backward in the most competitive league in the world. Brendan Rogers would be hoping to add at least one new face to his squad after a disappointing 21/22 season. 

Everton:

Arrivals- James Tarkowski (Free)

Significant departures- Richarlison ($63.80m), Jonjoe Kenny (Free), Braithwaite (Loan) and Fabian Delph (Released) 

Even though the signing of Tarkowski is a good addition, Everton need much more, and their fans won’t be feeling safe after being involved in a relegation battle till the closing few weeks of the last season. Losing Richarlison, Everton’s top goalscorer in 21/22 season, is a big blow and could prove to be very costly. Financial troubles won’t allow the Merseyside outfit to splurge cash like they have in the past.
