The winter and summer transfer windows of 2022 ushered in some of the best player transfers in the Premier League. Now that the summer window has finally closed, it is time to look at how some high-profile transfers in 2022 are performing for their clubs.
Premier League teams always use the transfer window to strengthen their sides, and today’s Premier League results table is influenced by these stars who are rightly living up to their price tags. While the 2022/2023 Premier League season is in game week 5, most fans can already see the impact of their top signings.
Erling Haaland’s move from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City has been one of the Premier League’s most brilliant transfers of 2022. Haaland’s goal-scoring prowess has shot him to the summit of the top goal-scorer chart of the Premier League with 9 goals in 5 games.
Haaland also announced himself in City’s first fixture with a brace against West Ham. He has followed up on that brilliantly with two hat tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.
Gabriel Jesus left Manchester City for a new challenge at Arsenal. The Brazilian striker has settled well in Mikel Arteta’s high-flying side. Jesus leads the line for the quick-pressing and fast-passing league leaders.
Gabriel Jesus has found playing time at Arsenal. The brilliant attacker is repaying the faith placed on him with 3 goals and 3 assists from 5 Premier League starts.
Luiz Diaz’s move from FC Porto to Liverpool in the winter transfer window has been described as one of the best businesses performed by a Premier League club in 2022.
Diaz immediately settled in with the Liverpool squad and formed a brilliant partnership with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah. This partnership pushed Liverpool towards a quadruple title challenge. They narrowly missed the Premier League on the season’s final day. With Mane gone from the squad, Diaz is helping Liverpool to turn around their poor start of the season with 3 goals already scored in 5 games.
Player movement in the Premier League happens in quick succession during every transfer window. The number of players who completed transfers in 2022 and the billions of Pounds traded between clubs may not be clear to everyone. But the players firing their clubs to the top are evident for all to see.
