Best EPL Transfer XI Of The Window So Far

With the Premier League transfer window slamming shut on Thursday, here is a starting XI made up of some of the biggest and best signings so far ahead of the new campaign, including one of the most expensive African superstars of all time!

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see the starting XI of the best signings in the Premier League so far this season in a 4-5-1 formation.

Liverpool’s acquisition of Brazil No. 1 Alisson is arguably the best goalkeeper signing of the window. The 25-year-old arrived from Roma for a fee of £56 million (R972 million), as per Transfermarkt, and will hopefully bring his new club stability.

At right-back, the pick of the signings has been Leicester City’s capture of Ricardo Pereira from Porto, who was in Portugal 2018 FIFA World Cup squad in Russia. The two centre-backs are Arsenal’s Sokratis and Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar.

The best left-back signing of the window so far might be Everton’s Lucas Digne, who left FC Barcelona in search of regular first-team football.

On the right-side of midfield is Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez. The 27-year-old’s £61 million move to Manchester City has seen him become the second most expensive African signing in history, though it will be interesting to see where he is used by Pep Guardiola.

Down the left-wing is Liverpool’s Xherdan Shaqiri, while the three midfielders are new Manchester United player Fred, new Chelsea signing Jorginho and Naby Keita, who like Shaqiri, joined the Reds in this window.

While Jorginho was expected to join City over the Blues, the club’s appointment of his former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri saw him change his mind at the last minute.

Because there have not been many striker signings ahead of this campaign, Richarlison has been selected up front following his big move from Watford to Everton, where he has reunited with Marco Silva – the manager who lured the 21-year-old to Watford at the start of the 2017/2018 season.
