With under three weeks to go until the 2021-22 Premier League season kicks off, there has been plenty of interesting new incomings.
Teams have been very busy in the transfer market and deals are sure to be continuing right up until the 11 pm deadline on August 31st.
Along with the big-name movers in the Premier League and around Europe, there have been some under-the-radar signings that could prove to be successful.
This season could be the platform for many new stars to put their names on the world map.
Let’s take a look at 3 Premier League signings to look out for, for the upcoming new season.
Patson Daka – RB Salzburg to Leicester City
The 22-year-old joined for a fee of around £27m and will become only the fourth Zambian player to play in the Premier League.
Known for his electric pace and clinical finishing, Daka had many suitors around Europe.
However, it was the Foxes who won the race and signed Daka to a 5-year deal.
An avid fan of European football will have heard of Daka from his performances for RB Salzburg, however, his football will be a new sight for many fans of the English game.
Leicester’s two striker formations will suit Daka perfectly, with his running in behind comparable to his new teammate Jamie Vardy.
His 51 goals across the last two seasons have proven his worth, and expect him to make an impact with Leicester this year.
With Vardy and Iheanacho the main men upfront, Daka may have to bide his time, but at just 22, he is sure to be part of the long-term future of Leicester’s front line.
Emiliano Buendía – Norwich City to Aston Villa
Last season’s Championship player of the year has opted to leave Carrow Road despite Norwich’s promotion.
Keeping hold of Buendia was always going to be tough for Norwich, with massive clubs around Europe reportedly interested in the Argentine.
It was a surprise to many when he then signed for Aston Villa in a deal worth over £30m.
For a club like Villa, it is a big coup considering how many teams were always eager to sign Buendia.
One thing for certain is that Villa have gained an unbelievable asset to their squad.
Buendia scored 15 goals and notched up 17 assists last season, leading Norwich to the Championship title.
Now aged 24, Buendia has experienced relegation and promotion and seems to be better equipped for the step up to Premier League level.
If Jack Grealish stays with Villa, the link-up with Buendia would be a joy to watch.
Villa fans have plenty to be excited about with this signing.
Bryan Gil – Sevilla to Tottenham Hotspur
Fee: £22m + Eric Lamela
Spurs continue their Summer rebuild plans with the acquisition of Spanish youngster Bryan Gil.
The deal was worth around £20m, with Eric Lamela also joining Sevilla as part of the deal.
Gil is one of the most exciting prospects coming out of Spain having climbed the ranks of Sevilla’s academy.
Gil is left-footed and operates on either wing, with his pace and ball-carrying ability making him stand out.
He holds the record for the first La Liga goalscorer born in the 21st century and already has three international caps for Spain.
The deal was completed whilst Gil remains in Tokyo representing Spain in the men’s football tournament.
At such a young age, the Spaniard has considerable amounts of experience on the world stage.
Certainly a long-term investment for Spurs, Gil may not walk straight into the first team, but expect to see him make a name for himself in his first season.
These 3 signings will all be looking to make an impact with their new clubs and prove themselves on the biggest stage.
Expect to see more under-the-radar deals to be done through the rest of the transfer window, with some names sure to surprise a few when the season kicks off.
