Looking at the Top Summer Transfers so far (July 22nd)

Michael Skok     23 lipca, 2016

The summer transfer season is very much in full swing. Many of the top clubs have already made high-profile signings. But which signings look to be the most influential come next season?

1. Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich)

Bayern Munich managed to signed one of Germany’s top defenders from their main title rivals. A captain and an experienced player, Hummels can be the final piece of Bayern’s defense that could make the reigning Bundesliga champions nigh impossible to break through. With Ancelotti at the helm; a back four of Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Phillip Lahm, and David Alaba (with Manuel Neuer behind them) would represent perhaps the most talented defense in Europe. Hummels already has a strong partnership with his German counterpart in Jerome Boateng, with both partnering for the German national team for the majority of the year. The former Dortmund defender also is an incredible passer from the back, an aspect that would completely fit into the Bayern mold of playing.

2. Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United)

Another former Dortmund star featuring on the list, the Armenian midfielder was the Bundesliga player of the year last season, having 19 goals and 15 seasons in the domestic season for Dortmund. He now looks for a new challenge with Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. This could represent an incredible coup for the Red Devils, as Manchester United has sorely missed creativity for quite a while now. The former Dortmund midfielder clearly shows to be one of the most dynamic players in Europe last season. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial rounding out the strike force, Mkhitaryan will have plenty of opportunities to provide service for the aforementioned forwards.

3. Grzegorz Krychowiak (Sevilla to Paris Saint Germain)

Krychowiak returns to Ligue 1 after having an impressive stint in La Liga with Sevilla and in the Euros with Poland. The Polish midfielder is a dynamic presence, having both defensive nous and technical ability to pass the ball. In a midfield combined with Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verrati, PSG may boast the most balanced midfield in Europe. What’s more, he joins the French side alongside Umai Emery, who managed the Polish international during his time at Sevilla. This is also a player who has already played against the best of the best in Real Madrid and Barcelona. Krychowiak will be able to show off all of his talent, and can be the difference for PSG come Champions League time.

4. N’golo Kante (Leicester City to Chelsea)

Arguably Leicester’s most influential player last season, the French midfielder now joins Chelsea and Antonio Conte’s project. A Chelsea side that looked fragile last season, Kante may be the steel that reinforces the Blues back into the title winning side the league saw the season before. With no European football next season, Kante may be able to continue his style of play with no issues; one that requires full of stamina and strength. Combined with Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea’s midfield will be enough to trouble the best of the Premier League.
