The transfer deadline day is winding to a close with the final few deals being confirmed by clubs as the window firmly closes behind us. Of course, there is still time for loan deal to go through however we are jumping right in and ranking the top three Premier League club from this transfer window. Sorry Manchester United and Tottenham fans, you have not quite made it.
3rd - Everton
Everton must be happy with the transfer business that they have completed during this transfer window. The big singing of Richarlison drew a fair bit of criticism given that he was signed for £35m rising to £50m, however, the other business, especially the deals that they have completed today have really strengthened their first team squad.
Yerry Mina has joined from Barcelona and will come straight in as their first choice centre-back. For £27m Everton have got themselves an attacking threat from set pieces along with a player with the potential to develop into one of the Premier Leagues best centre-backs. Along with Mina, they have brought in Bernard on a free transfer, who could turn out to be the bargain of the summer. An exciting attacking midfielder, partnering him up with countryman Richarlison will see Everton go far this season.
Another Barca man Lucas Digne joined as a solid successor to Leighton Baines whilst Andre Gomes made it a hat-trick of Barcelona signings for Everton on deadline day. The Blue side of Merseyside should be delighted.
2nd - Liverpool
Delighted, but outdone by their slightly more illustrious neighbours, Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp will have been sitting with his feet up on deadline day having completed all his business nice and early in this window. The goalkeeper was the key position that needed strengthening and he went out and did that in emphatic style. Alisson Becker joined from Roma for £63m, which seemed huge for a goalkeeper until Chelsea went berserk and signed that Athletic Bilbao bloke for £70m. Now it is a bargain.
Fabinho joined with little fuss whilst the Premier League signing of the summer for many, Naby Keita, joined the club having agreed a deal last season. Keeping hold of Mo Salah was key and they managed to do that whilst Xherdan Shaqiri is a fantastic signing at the very low price of £12m. Is this finally their year?
1st - Fulham
Fulham have smashed it. By far and away the best transfer window we have seen in the Premier League in some time the new boys to the division are looking to make a big impression in their first season back. They somehow stole in to sign Jean-Michel Seri from Nice before bringing Alfie Mawson, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Joe Bryan to the club on permanent deals. Mitro was the big signing for them having dragged them up to the Premier League last season whilst Mawson and Bryan will improve their back four.
They also brought in World Cup winner Andre Schurrle in on loan as well as Sevilla keeper Sergio Rico and Arsenal youngster Calum Chambers, three players who should all impact their starting XI this season.
To cap things off on deadline day they spent over £20m on 22-year-old midfielder André-Frank Zambo Anguissa from Marseille as well as bringing in Timothy Fosu-Mensah on loan from Manchester United and Luciano Vietto from Atletico Madrid. The options that Slavisa Jokanovic now has available to him are simply staggering and the London club should be targeting a top ten finish this season.
What a time to be a Fulham fan.
