EPL: The Big Guns in the Transfer Market

Taken from Football Wallpaper 7

#1: Manchester City: The defending Premier League Champions have had an astonishingly quiet summer compared to the past few seasons. 

With very little entries and the transfer of Robin Van Persie from Arsenal looking a lot less likely, the Citizens main involvement in the transfer market looks to be in the sales department with Dzeko and Tevez both said to be nearing the exit door.

#2: Manchester United: The most interesting thing about the Red Devils’ signings is that they are very young. It looks like Fergie is building a new team for his successor at Old Trafford. 

The transfer of Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund could turn out to be the transfer of the season and with rumours of Eriksen and Lucas looming large United will yet again be a force to reckon with.

#3: Chelsea: The Blues from Stamford Bridge have again proved themselves as big spenders. Di Matteo will definitely want to prove any doubters wrong. The signings that Abramovich has funded have all followed a certain pattern. The transfers have all been in favor of a more attacking team. 

After finishing in a dissapointing 6th place last season they have shown their intent in the 2012/13 season with the signings of the Ligue 1 Player of the Season: Eden Hazard and German International Marko Marin. 

If the deals for Brazilians Hulk and Oscar do happen, Chelsea will be a very tough team to stop.

#4: Arsenal: The Gunners have probably done the best business in the transfer window so far. The acquisitions of Podolski and Giroud have been nothing less than excellent business by Arsene Wenger. 

The worst part of the transfer window for Arsenal would be the moment a club comes knocking with an irresistible offer for their Captain Robin Van Persie. It’s beginning to look like they might have given up their interest in M’Vila and another purchase seems very unlikely.
