Top Five Premier League Buys

kevin de bruyne

Sold by Chelsea for just £18million last year, Kevin de Bruyne has scored three and assisted four for Manchester City this season, rubbing salt in the deep wound of Jose Mourinho.

Manuel Pellegrini splashed the cash on the Belgian, paying £54.5million, and he can only hope that he continues to flourish for the Etihad club.

dele alli spurs

A product of MK Dons’ academy, Dele Alli has excelled alongside Eric Dier in Spurs’ midfield and has given England boss Roy Hodgson a selection headache after a stunning strike against France earlier this week.

Scoring two goals and racking up two MOTM performances, 19 year old Alli has to be considered a steal at £5million.

Anthony Martial

Being the most expensive teenager in the history of football, Anthony Martial was never expected to live up to his huge price tag of £36million, and certainly not expected to four goals in his first four games, picking up the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month award on the way.

Quickly compared to Thierry Henry, Martial has established himself as a regular for France and could be an energetic impact substitute in during their quest to win the Euros.

Married with one kid, Martial could be a superstar for Manchester United in the coming seasons, and they will be hoping to pay another £21.6million should he score 25 goals for them, be capped 25 times for France and win the Ballon D’or, all before 2019.

dimitri payet

Never given the chance at a big club because of his inconsistencies, Dimitri Payet has been West Ham’s stand out performer in their sensational start to the season, helping them to 6th place.

Payet, 28, has scored five goals since his £12million move from Marseille to the Irons, and fans will be hoping that he can push them towards a place in Europe, ready for their move to the Olympic Stadium.

gerard deulofeu

Repeatedly cutting open Premier League defences this season with dazzling performances, Gerard Deulofeu seems a steal at just £4.2million, having set up Romelu Lukaku and co six times this season already.

The young Spaniard surprised many after an unspectacular loan spell with the Toffees two seasons ago, but seems to be relishing in Roberto Martinez’s fast paced, possession football.
