Top Transfer Deals of 2015

With the 2016s January transfer window not far off on the horizon, we can take stock of the previous transfers of the last 12 months. There was a net spend of around £500million over the two transfer windows in the Premier League, with the total spending hitting just above £1billion over the past year.

So it’s safe to say there were some records broken on spending in the league, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t see a few bargains in this time. With millions being made in sales, more and more clubs are flexing their financial muscle, with even the big clubs looking to pick up a player for a great price.

Have a look and see some of the best transfer deals in the Premier League in 2015!

Joe Gomez

Liverpool brought in the 18 year old for a reasonable price of £3.5 million from Championship outfit Charlton, yet many didn’t expect him to be thrust into the first team.

But Brendan Rodgers did so, and after a few great showings at his unnatural left back position, it was clear that Gomez has a very bright future at the club. Then the manager that put his faith in the young defender was sacked, with Brendan Rodgers being replaced by German Jurgen Klopp.

Sadly Gomez suffered an ACL injury on Klopps first training session, ruling him out for the rest of the season. While it’s a shame to see his season end so quickly after such a promising start, Gomez has plenty to offer in the future, so that £3.5million is looking more and more like an amazing bargain for one of England’s most promising defenders.

Dimitri Payet

Last season saw attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet score an impressive 7 goals and a whopping 17 assists for French giants Marseille, leading West Ham to pay around £12million for the Frenchmen.

It’s safe to easy that he has already proven that to be a fine price, already contributing to West Hams fantastic start to the season. Payet has provided 5 goals and 3 assists in the Premier League so far this season, with the pace and trickery of the attacking midfielder drawing the plaudits from many, Hammers fans included.

Toby Alderweireld

Just ask Southampton fans how great a player Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld is, as Saints fans were devastated to hear that they would be losing yet another fine defender to a fellow Premiership team.

Tottenham were the eventual buyers for Alderweireld, and with the fee though to be around £11.5million, it’s clear just how much of a bargain the North London club got. Paired with fellow Belgian centre back Jan Vertonghen at his new club appears to have been a shrewd move by Spurs, and seeing as the team haven’t lost since the opening day of the season, it’s clear just how impressive the 26 year old has been.

Either another big-money move or plenty of years of great service await Tottenham with a player like this on their books, and the fans couldn’t be happier about it.

Gerard Deulofeu

£3million is a phenomenal price for a former Barcelona youth player, especially considering he is still the unfinished article at 21 years old, but Everton have certainly found themselves a bargain should he reach his full potential.

While the attacking player has drawn some criticism for his lack of tracking back, his attacking prowess more than compensates for this. With just one goal to his name, it remains to be seen how much of a goal scoring threat the young Spaniard could offer other teams, but his ability to set up play has drawn the praise of many.

With 5 assists to his name, he has only recently hit his stride, and with attacking threats such as Romelu Lukaku looking for the kind of pinpoint passes and crosses Deulofeu can provide, it looks like he could be one of the biggest bargains of the year.
