Calum Chambers made his return to Fulham’s starting lineup to earn his fifth Premier League appearance for the club in their midday clash against Javi Garcia’s Watford. The Cottagers conceded early on in the fixture… More
20th – Cardiff City: Probably the weakest team in the Premier League overall and Neil Warnock has a bad record in the league too. They’ve made some decent signings in Harry Arter and Bobby Reid but I’d be shocked if they managed to stay up.
19th – Southampton: Really surprised at how much they’ve declined in the last few years. The current squad is the weakest it’s been for a while and Mark Hughes is a bad manager. Most of their signings have been average at best.
With the summer transfer window officially closed for Premier League clubs, it’s finally time for Unai Emery and the squad to prepare for the gruelling season ahead. Under the club’s new set-up, Arsenal moved significantly faster when it came to strengthening the squad but were unable to pull off many “big” signings due to a low budget as well as issues regarding the wage bill. The following gives my thoughts on every major signing and departure that occurred for the Gunners during the transfer window.
Southampton are closing in on the loan signing of Danny Ings as they made a pursuit for the forward at the eleventh hour. The Saints successfully submitted a deal sheet prior to 5pm deadline meaning they have until 7pm tonight to finalise a deal.
The Liverpool striker had been touted to the numerous Premier League clubs like Crystal Palace and Newcastle, this window, for a fee believed to be in the region of £20 million.
However, with no permanent deal in sight, Liverpool accepted a loan offer from Southampton with the club currently trying to complete the deal before the 7pm deadline.
The Englishman has been very unlucky throughout his tenure at the Reds, where he has spent a majority of his time at the club facing different injuries. Ings suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in 2015 and also required surgery on his right knee the following season. A loan move away from the club should be exactly what the England forward needs to get his football career back on track.
