Here are the best Premier League signings from the first three weeks of the summer transfer window.
As we approach July, the summer transfer window is well under way and is nearing its fourth week since opening once again.
A number of Premier League clubs are deep into their transfer business and have looked to act fast in order to bolster their squad ahead of next season, while others are taking their time and are perhaps adopting the ‘quality over quantity’ approach.
Manchester City have so far secured one summer signing, while they look close to bringing in Kalvin Phillips from Leeds United and Marc Cucurella from Brighton & Hove Albion.
Meanwhile, Manchester United seem to be struggling to bring in their much-needed additions, with Erik ten Hag yet to make his first signing in what should be a very busy summer for the Dutchman’s new club.
After an exciting month of rumours and transfers, we have created the best starting line-up of June’s Premier League arrivals...
1. Nick Pope - Newcastle
Pope had been one of Burnley’s better players over the last few years and was always going to remain in the Premier League following their relegation, with Newcastle winning the race for the England international. The 30-year-old joined for a reported £10m - significantly less than the Clarets had first valued him at.
2. Ivan Perisic - Tottenham
Perisic reunites with Antonio Conte after joining Tottenham on a free this summer. The 33-year-old made 32 Serie A appearances under the Italian as they won the league last season.
3. Diego Carlos - Aston Villa
Diego Carlos’ move to Aston Villa came as a surprise to many after being linked with a number of top clubs. A £26m deal for the 29-year-old could be a risk for Steven Gerrard’s side given his age.
4. Sven Botman - Newcastle
Newcastle finally confirmed the €37m signing of Sven Botman from Lille earlier this week. The 22-year-old has huge potential and shows real intent from the Magpies’ board.
