Transfer Window: New Signings From Abroad- Who will cope?

Arsenal

Taken from Arsenation

Olivier Giroud: In my opinion, this man will adapt to the Premier League fairly easily. This is because he is a very physical player, who won’t get fazed by big challenges and intimidating centre-backs. 
                                                                    


Prediction: He will have a successful season, scoring approximately 15 goals.
       


Lukas Podolski: Podolski will also cope I think. He comes from the second most physical league, the Bundesliga. This is why he’ll be ok. Future team-mate Giroud will find it easier, as I’m sure Podolski will struggle early on.




Prediction: He will get better and better, especially if he’s played upfront, where he can poach goals. 

                                                                                   
Tottenham Hotspur

Taken from MSN Sport

Jan Vertonghen: Left-back/centre back Vertonghen will cope easily. He’s a strong young man, and can cope with high-tempo football. This is why I was disappointed when my favourite club Arsenal narrowly missed out on him.
                                                                    


Prediction: A solid season, that will see him highly rated nationally.

Chelsea

Taken from The Telegraph

                                                                 
Marko Marin: Chelsea fans will have to be patient, as it’ll take one season for this youngster to get-to-grips with the Premier League. 


He has bags of talent, but I’m far from convinced that he’ll be able to fend off a huge defender kicking at his ankles. Although he came from Bundesliga, he’ll still struggle.
                                                                 


Prediction: A long, hard season.

                                                                 
Eden Hazard: Like Marin, Chelsea fans will need to wait for the best of this lad. Next season he won’t be effective. When Belgium played England, Hazard was kicked off the park. I can see this happening a lot next season.
                                                                 


Prediction: He’ll struggle, but next season shine.

                                                                 

                                                                                  
Man United

Taken from the Daily Mail



                                                                
Shinji Kagawa: Kagawa is madly talented, and fairly strong. He will definitely be able to cope next year. I think his pace and strength will make him relatively comfortable next year.
                                                                


Prediction: An amazing season. Good amount of assists and goals. 

                                                                                  


Reading

Taken from Eurosport



                                                               
Pavel Pogrebnyak: In the Pog Reading have signed a goal-scorer. During a successful loan-spell at Fulham, he scored 6 goals in 12 matches. Very impressive. His height, Premier League experience, and build will settle him next year. 
                                                               


Prediction: Goals, goals, and more goals.
