Kai Havertz & Andre Silva
With another transfer window closed it is again time for our transfer window review. In this review, we will look at the major transfers from the 20/21 summer window by considering the most and least efficient player purchases across Europe’s top seven leagues. Before this, however, the transfer dealings of the most and least efficient clubs will be analysed. Finally, we will compare all the considered leagues in terms of transfer variance before presenting our league efficiency tables for the second season.
Pierre Emile Hojbjerg
Following the Coronavirus outbreak, football clubs’ finances have taken a huge hit, demonstrated by clubs as large as Manchester United and Tottenham taking out loans in order to assist with running costs and the unfortunate news that Wigan Athletic has entered administration. For this reason, we have decided to produce a list of five players that appear to be undervalued in the current market as clubs aim to maximise the impact of any funds they are able to invest in the transfer market.
Timo Werner
The 2016/2017 season was a big one for Timo Werner as it was a season in which he moved from Stuttgart to a highly-ambitious club named Red Bull Leipzig who were aiming to upset the dominance of Bayern Munich and announce themselves on the European stage.
Sofyan Amrabat, Dylan Bronn and Joao Felix
After the completion of the January transfer window, we look back and assess the business conducted by Club's over the season and the key dealings which took place.
Jadon Sancho
Jadon Sancho may have had a short career so far but he has already become one of the most sought after players in world football, with a host of high profile clubs looking to prize him away from Borussia Dortmund. The 19 year old was recently left out of the Dortmund squad to face Borussia Monchengladbach and fined a weeks wages after returning late from England duty, as well as being benched for their Champions League clash against Barcelona for turning up late to a team meeting. These issues have meant that clubs across Europe are now queuing up to try and secure his signature.
With the Summer Transfer Window now complete, it's time for our annual review of the business conducted. Which Club spent the most efficiently and which was the most inefficient? Which player proved to be the best value? The review also looks at Leagues as a whole and a new feature for this year, efficiency tables, which ranks each Club in the seven European leagues considered by transfer efficiency?
Emre Can
Just one season after moving to Turin from Liverpool on a free transfer, it seems that Juventus are now keen to offload Emre Can. Last season the German midfielder made 37 appearances and scored 7 goals for the Old Lady, proving to be a key part of the team as they pushed for another Serie A title and hoped to capture the Champions League. However, after the arrival of Maurizio Sarri and after a busy summer which saw the arrivals of fellow midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot it seems that Can has fallen down the pecking order.
Samuel Chukwueze
After a breakout season for Villarreal, in which he helped them to avoid relegation and finish in 14th place with 7 goals and 2 assists in 24 La Liga appearances, Samuel Chukwueze seems to be attracting a lot of attention from other European clubs. Aiding this interest is the fact that at just 20 years old he has already been crowned Nigerian young player of the year back in 2018 and is already getting regular game time for the Nigerian national team.
Nicolas Pepe
Nicolas Pepe is one of the most wanted players in Europe after a brilliant season with Lille which saw him rack up 22 goals and 11 assists to help them finish second in Ligue 1, behind the French giants PSG. Although Lille’s chairman does seem resigned to losing the 24-year old, his contract isn’t up until 2022 so they are in no hurry to sell even though there are some big European clubs circling.
Our review of the most recent winter transfer window. Which league spent the most efficiently? Which clubs conducted the best and worst business? Which player commanded the largest overspend; Pulisic? Piatek? Almiron?
