Summer Signings Who Have Performed Beyond Expectations So Far This Season

  The summer transfer window saw many good players move clubs. The most notable of them being all-time greats Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo who moved to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United respectively. Some of the players who moved this summer have had a slow start while some have started so well that they have exceeded expectations. 

  Without further ado, below are five players who changed clubs this summer and have performed beyond expectations at their new clubs:

5. Demarai Gray | Everton |

  Demarai Gray is a player who has pace and great technical skills. He was bought from Bayern Leverkusen for a meagre £1.7m and has so far scored 3 goals for Everton which came from his first three shots on target since joining the Merseyside club.

4. Takehiro Tomiyasu | Arsenal |

  When Tomiyasu was signed from Bologna for €18m, many doubted his abilities. However, the Japanese defender is now a hit at Arsenal. Before he joined, Arsenal was without a point in the league but since his arrival, the Gunners have gathered 6 points from the two matches he has played in the English Premier League. 

3. Memphis Depay | Barcelona |

  After the departure of Lionel Messi, Barcelona's over-reliance on the Argentine was laid bare. However, Memphis Depay, who joined from Lyon as a free agent, has stepped up for his team with some impressive performances. The Dutchman singlehandedly helped Barcelona gain 4 points from two games with his performance at the beginning of the season.

2. Romelu Lukaku | Chelsea |

   Romelu Lukaku was signed for £97.5m from Inter Milan and he has been worth every penny. The Belgian is the missing jigsaw in an interesting Chelsea team. He has scored four goals in five matches since joining the London outfit. Aside from goals, his hold-up play has also brought the best out of players like Mason Mount and Kai Havertz.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo | Manchester United |

   Cristiano Ronaldo is so far the signing of the summer. The Portuguese superstar has been putting in incredible performances since signing for Manchester United. He has scored in every game he has played in since joining the Red Devils. Many doubted if the 36-year-old could still play at the topmost level, however, with four goals in just three games, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has proven to be a bargain buy at €21m plus add-ons.
