Tue 20 July 2021 | 12:00

The summer transfer window is underway and we are here to bring you all the details you need about the done deals in the English league. Follow us below for more Premier League transfer news.

With Euro 2020 finally coming to an end with Italy as the reigning champions, football fans are once again focusing their attention on club football and the long-awaited summer transfer window. The

Premier League summer 2021 transfer window

is one of the most anticipated transfer windows in the world and many have been waiting to see which world-class players are going to sign for world-class teams such as Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. All twenty clubs have been sealing deals since May. But the window officially opened on 9 June and will continue until 31 August.

While some clubs have tried not to splash the cash on new big-name signings due to the recent revenue losses caused by COVID-19, there are those who spend big money to bring in fresh blood into the league. For more detail on the Premier League transfers 20/21, read on below as we take a look at each team’s traffic.

English Premier League transfers – 2020/2021

With the

Premier League transfer news

getting hotter every day, us football enthusiasts simply can’t wait to hear more about the recent speculations and confirmed deals in the Premier League. Here is how each team has been conducting their business so far.

Arsenal

It seems that

Arsenal

are aiming for the future instead of boosting their current squad with already well-made superstars. That is why they have signed another youngster who has quite a long way ahead to prove himself. 21-year-old Portuguese left-back Nuno Tavares has joined the Gunners for €8 million from Benfica on a four-year deal. Tavares has been a star on the rise, with his market value skyrocketing since 2019, when his value was estimated to be less than €1 million.

Amongst the players who are on their way out of the club, David Luiz, Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba’s names could be seen. Of course while the latter two have both been sent out on loan to Marseille, David Luiz was simply released from the club after his contract expired.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa

have been active in the

Premier League summer 2021 transfer window

as well. They have already signed three players prior to the start of the preseason. The name that shines amongst the arrivals is the former Manchester United and Inter Milan winger and full-back Ashley Young.

The 36-year-old speedster spent almost a decade playing for Manchester United after spending four years at Aston Villa. He initially joined Villa for the first time back in 2007 when he switched clubs from Watford for €13 million. He left the Red Devils and joined Inter for €1.7 million last season and has now returned to his former club on a free transfer.

Amongst the arrivals are also Emiliano Buendia and Josh Feeney, who have joined the Lions from Norwich City and Fleetwood respectively. Of course Feeney is only 16 years old and has quite a long road ahead of himself if he wants to reach the level of the club’s first team.

One particularly interesting departure from the club in the Premier League transfers 20/21  includes 35-year-old goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who has returned to Manchester United after spending several years playing for numerous clubs such as Cardiff, Bristol City, Burnley and of course Villa. The Englishman will definitely work at United as more of a reserve goalkeeper and a goalkeeping coach rather than a first-team player.

Brentford

Brentford

supporters must be buzzing right now as their favorite club has qualified to play in the top-tier of English football in the Premier League after a hard-fought battle in the playoffs. Having finished the 2020-21 season behind Watford and Norwich City in the Championship, they managed to earn their place in the Premier League and are now looking to strengthen their squad depth with new signings in the

Premier League summer 2021 transfer window

.

With a significantly weaker budget as a Championship club amongst world-class goliaths such as Manchester City and United, Brentford are currently hoping that relying on their youth could be the solution to their survival in the league as they have currently signed three young players and are yet to make a relatively big-name signing.

While Brentford have net signed any particularly famous player, Premier League transfer news confirm that Danish right-back Henrik Dalsgaard has left the English club and moved back to his home country to join Midtjylland on a free transfer deal. He had previously signed for Brentford from Zulte Waregem for €1 million back in 2017.

Brighton & Hove Albion

It seems that

Brighton

are also focusing on bringing in young talents in the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window. They have already signed Jeremy Sarmiento, Ajax goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen, 23-year-old midfielder Enock Mwepu and Gary Dicker. But while these arrivals look to be promising youngsters, the Seagulls have also settled for a huge financial loss by letting go of the most expensive player in their history.

Brighton signed Iranian winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh from AZ Alkmaar for a record fee of €19 million, which was the highest transfer fee paid for any player by the club. The 27-year-old, however, never got to live up to the expectations as he only got to make a total of 61 appearances since joining the club in 2018.

With almost €20 million paid in total for his transfer, letting go of him for €5 million shows how much the club wanted him to go as they needed to cash in on his transfer. Perhaps the right-winger is the most important departure from the club amongst Brighton’s

Burnley

Burnley are one of the clubs who nearly avoided relegation and managed to stay in the top-flight for another season. This season will not be any different as they plan to do exactly the same and stay just above the relegation zone with new signings in the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window. One of the club’s recently-signed players who attracted quite a lot of attention last season in the Championship is the 20-year-old Nathan Collins. The Irish center-back has joined Burnley from Stoke City for reportedly €14 million, signing a four-year deal until 2025.

Chelsea

Chelsea

splashed the cash to sign numerous world-class players in the summer of 2020 and are surely going to keep investing on their own players instead of paying for more big-name signings. Of course having won the Champions League last season, they might be in the market for some new strikers as they have let go of two of the reserve strikers this season.

English Premier League transfers – 2020/2021 include both Victor Moses and Chelsea legend Olivier Giroud, who got to write his name in the Premier League hall of fame before his departure from London. The Frenchman is perhaps the biggest name so far in Chelsea’s departures list as he has signed for AC Milan, with the Italian side having to pay a total of €1 million to acquire the 34-year-old’s services.

Crystal palace

Crystal Palace

have not been that active in the

Premier League transfers 20/21

, neither in the departures nor in the acquisitions department. However, there is one particular new-blood who has gained quite a lot of attention and has earned himself quite the market value recently.

Palace have signed 19-year-old England-born Frenchman Michael Olise, who joined the Premier League side from Reading for €9.5 million. Of course while Palace have paid a little less than €10 million for his services, they have still managed to get him on a bargain as his actual market value is estimated to be around €15 million. The attacking midfielder had a stellar performance last season with Reading, making a total of 46 appearances for the club across all competitions, scoring 7 goals and providing 12 assists in the process.

Everton

With Carlo Ancelotti leaving his position as Everton’s manager to return to his former club Real Madrid, Everton will be looking for a summer overhaul with their new manager Rafael Benitez, who shocked almost all Liverpool supporters by joining their rivals in the Premier League. Since taking the wheel at Everton, Benitez has been doing some cleaning with several big-name departures already on the list in the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window. The club’s recent departures include Theo Walcott, Joshua King, and Matthew Pennington, who left for Southampton, Watford and Shrewsbury Town respectively.

Leeds United

Leeds United have been quite active in the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window so far, with four new signings already being announced in recent weeks. While Amari Miller and Sean Mcgurk are not first-team material yet, Leeds have signed Jack Harrison and Junior Firpo to take on the responsibility of key positions in the squad from next season.

24-year-old Harrison actually joined The Peacocks on loan from Manchester City way back in 2018, which is why it is safe to say he has earned his place in the team and that is why they have decided to make his move permanent with a €12.5 million transfer fee. Leeds United have also signed Junior Firpo from Barcelona for reportedly €15 million. The Spanish left-back had initially cost Barcelona €20 million, but the Catalans decided to offload their flop with a €5 million cut in price.

Leicester City

Having won the 2020-21 FA Cup against Chelsea,

Leicester City

will be doubly determined to push on for more success in England and in Europe by strengthening their squad while also keeping the number of players in an acceptable range. They have already signed Patson Daka from RB Salzburg and Boubakary Soumare from Lille, while acquiring 31-year-old left-back Ryan Bertrand on a free transfer. The Foxes have already spent €50 million to bring in the first two players mentioned. They might go on and spend on other new signings as well.

Liverpool

Liverpool

have had somewhat of a quiet policy in the first few weeks of the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window. They have signed Ibrahima Konate from Rb Leipzig for €40 million. It is staggering to think that only four years ago, Konate had joined RB Leipzig on a free transfer, and now he has turned into one of the most expensive transfer in this season’s summer transfer window.

With Virgil van Dijk’s future still unknown due to his injury, which caused Liverpool to fall into a disastrous spell last season, Jurgen Klopp had to splash the cash and sign a young and reliable center-back. We will have to wait and see if they sign anyone else or not. With Georginio Wijnaldum leaving the Reds to join PSG on a free transfer deal, Klopp might be looking for a new midfielder as well.

Ibrahima Konate

Out

Georginio Wijnaldum (PSG), Remi Savage (Newcastle), Kamil Grabara (FC Copenhagen)

Manchester City

Even though Pep Guardiola has reiterated that they can’t afford buying a new striker this season, many still don’t buy into his words, especially since Sergio Aguero left the club for free to join Barcelona after spending ten trophy-laden years with the Cityzens. There are speculations about

Manchester City

aiming to purchase England captain and Tottenham striker Harry Kane, but it is nothing more than mere speculations and rumors as there are no official announcements about a deal being agreed upon by the two clubs.

The list of Manchester City’s recent acquisitions will be updated upon the arrival of new signings.

Manchester United

Perhaps the player that attracted the most attention in the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window was Jadon Sancho, who has since joined

Manchester United

from Borussia Dortmund. Of course the deal has not been official as of yet and the Englishman is yet to put pen on paper, with Dortmund only just agreeing on a reported €100 million transfer fee. Having lost the Euro 2020 final to Italy, Sancho might want to take some time off for himself and reflect on his future and where he wants to continue his football.

Newcastle United

Having finished 12th in the league last season, Newcastle United might want to aim for a higher finish in the Premier League this time around. They are yet to make a big-name signing and have only signed a couple of young and promising talents in the first few weeks of the Premier League summer 2021 transfer window to add to their U23 side.

Norwich City

Norwich City have been quite busy in the Premier League this summer, having already signed more than six players. The club’s arrivals list includes Pierre Lees-Melou as well, who has joined the Premier League side from OGC Nice for €6 million. The Canaries managed to earn a promotion to the top tier of English football after winning the Championship last season. They will surely be looking forward to strengthening their position in the league in order to avoid the relegation zone.

Southampton

Theo Walcott and Romain Perraud are the only two players who have joined Southampton so far. While the 32-year-old right-winger Theo Walcott has joined Southampton from Everton on a free transfer deal, the Saints have had to pay €12 million in order to acquire Perraud’s services from Stade Brest. We will have to wait and see if Southampton make any more signing during a financially tough period or not.

Tottenham Hotspur

With Manchester City rumored to be after Harry Kane,

Tottenham

will have to either convince the England captain to stay or look for a replacement in the near future. With the likes of Juan Foyth and Danny Rose having departed the club, Nuno Espirito Santo surely has a plan to bring in new players before the transfer window closes.

Watford

Having finished second in the Championship last season, Watford will be looking forward to cementing their position in the Premier League and avoiding the relegation zone as much as they can, which is why they have already signed several players to help them reach their goals in the top-tier of English football. Watford have signed the likes of Joshua King, Danny Rose and Emmanuel Dennis while saying goodbye to Ben Wilmot, who has joined Stoke City this summer.

West Ham United

The biggest name amongst West Ham United’s departures this summer is perhaps Felipe Anderson, who has joined Lazio on a four-year deal, which has cost the Italian side €3 million. The 28-year-old winger has returned to his former club after joining West Ham from Lazio for €38 million not so long ago in 2018.

He moved out on loan in 2020 to get more game time, but eventually had to move back to his former club for a significantly reduced price. Throughout the years, the immensely versatile winger made 73 appearances for West Ham, scoring 12 goals and providing 13 assists in the process.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

The Wolves finished the 2020-21 Premier League season in the lower half of the table. With the aim of perhaps repeating the same season or even going up a place or two, Wolverhampton might be looking forward to invest in young talents instead of signing veteran players. Of course being hit by the pandemic has obviously taken its toll on not only the Wolves, but also every other football club in the world as well.
