Premier League

A "borrowed" XI of the best loan signings by Premier League clubs for this season

On the deadline day of one of the most remarkable transfer windows in recent history, Saúl Ñíguez made a transfer to Chelsea as one of the loan signings made by Premier League clubs.

With the summer transfer window finally closed, here is an XI of the best loan signings made by Premier League clubs over the last two months.

Goalkeeper

Alphonse Areola (West Ham)

West Ham signed Alphonse Areola on loan from PSG for €2 million.

The French goalkeeper will be looking to usurp Lukasz Fabianski as the Hammers' number 1 goalkeeper at some point during the course of the season.

Left back

Brandon Williams (Norwich City)

Luke Shaw's impressive resurgence last season means that Brandon Williams will not get much playing time this season, just like last season.

The red devils instead loaned the left back to Norwich City and he will be looking to not only get the desired playing time, but also Canaries' bid for survival.

Centre back

Cristian Romero (Tottenham)

Tottenham signed a good defender in Cristian Romero on loan from Atlanta in a bit to increase the squad depth in the defence.

So far, Spurs have a 100% record in the PL without conceding a goal, although Romero only played on minute in the first game against Manchester City.

Ozan Kabak (Norwich City)

Liverpool signed Ozan Kabak on loan last season as an emergency signing from Schalke after suffering injury woes in their defence.

This time around, it's Norwich who are paying a €4 million fee to sign the Turk as they bid to avoid relegation on their return to the EPL.

Right back

Axel Tuanzebe (Aston Villa)

Axel Tuanzebe has found playing time difficult to come by at Manchester United.

Just like Brandon Williams, he has been sent out on loan to Aston Villa to get more playing time as the Villains aim to establish themselves as a permanent Premier League team.

Midfielders

Billy Gilmour (Norwich City)

Billy Gilmour is the third loan signing of Norwich City that will feature in this lineup.

The Canaries really delved into the loan market for firepower this season.

Gilmour has started each of their Premier League games this season with the newly promoted club losing all of their games.

Saúl Ñíguez (Chelsea)

Chelsea very hardly do the loan signing thing.

However, this season is one of the very few seasons the blues have decided to go into the loan market for a player and this time, they have gotten a very quality player.

Saúl will add more depth to the already quality Chelsea midfield as the blues look to challenge for trophies in 5 different competitions this season.

Conor Gallagher (Crystal Palace)

Conor Gallagher will be following up an impressive loan spell at West Brom from Chelsea last season with a fresh assignment at Crystal Palace this season.

The Chelsea academy graduate scored his new club's first two goals of this season in the EPL last weekend and will be looking to avoid a second consecutive relegation with his loan club.

Left winger

Ademola Lookman (Leicester City)

Leicester City added Ademola Lookman to their squad late in the transfer window on a loan deal from RB Leipzig.

The Foxes will be hoping to earn for themselves some piece of silverware this season, just like last season.

Right winger

Trincão (Wolves)

Wolves got for themselves, Barcelona's Trincão, on loan for the rest of the season.

The club is facing life without former boss, Nuno Espírito Santo.

Centre forward

Hee-chan Hwang (Wolves)

Trincão isn't the only player Wolves signed on loan this season as they also signed experienced striker, Hee-chan Hwang, on loan from RB Leipzig.

Wolves will need everything the striker has to offer as they are yet to score a goal in the EPL this season.
