The Premier League has seen many great players over the years but nothing is more fun to watch than an unknown quantity take the league by storm. Invariably one or two players from the lesser known clubs have a great impact on how a season progresses and more often than not end up moving to a bigger club or a fatter pay cheque.
Leicester City have been the surprise package of the season so far and even if they do fade away in the second half of the campaign, it would have been a brilliant performance by the club. Watford, Crystal Palace and Stoke have all been brilliant so far and we look a few transfers that might take place sooner or later which could surprise a few teams.
- Riyad Mahrez
With 13 goals and seven assists in the league campaign, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Riyad Mahrez actually leave Leicester City. The Foxes would make a killing on the sale of the 24-year-old Algerian and Mahrez would actually be a great signing for any club that does bid for him. A great winger, Mahrez has been linked with a move to Arsenal but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Manchester United move for him as they are also in need for some effective wide men.
