Signing of the Summer

There have been many eye catching signings over the summer; many obvious due to their big money nature and some less so due to their relative understatement. Three of the real bargains that could have a huge impact on this year’s Premier League are Moussa Dembele (Tottenham), Clint Dempsey (Tottenham), and Michu (Swansea).

Dembele has been acknowledged as great player for a long time during his stint at Fulham. He’s powerful and direct driving the play forward from deep positions. He’s the kind of great out-ball a defender looks for when camped out in his own half.

He doesn’t necessarily play as a deep lying midfielder although this could become his position after Modric left for Real Madrid. He probably fits best into the final third and could feature as one of Andre Villas Boas’ four attackers. Villas Boas needs something of a reprieve from one of his new signings or his tenure at Tottenham could be as difficult as his brief time at Chelsea.

AVB is one of the bookies favourites to be sacked first with the Premier League ‘sack race’ being a big market amongst the various online casino and bookies click here to find out more.

Dembele doesn’t score a great deal of goals but where coming to expect less conventional return from the old fashioned positions. He’s a man that instigates moves and commits players from deep.

Clint Dempsey will be the man to score most of the goals from midfield giving Tottenham a seemingly nice balance in the centre of the park. Dempsey plied a quiet and hugely effective trade at Fulham scoring a deluge of goals from the midfield (21 goals in all competitions 2011/12). Dempsey was Fulham’s player of the season last year and was much in demand this summer.

Michu has already scored 4 goals for Swansea this season, joining from Rayo Vallecano for an impossibly cheap £2m. Michu scored 15 La Liga goals in 2011/12 making him the most prolific midfielder in Spain’s top flight. Potentially bargain of the season.
