Purchases, purchases and more purchases, the Premier League is known for its extravagant purchases in the transfer window. Larger TV deals, bigger sponsorship deals and a whole lot of ticket revenue is certainly helping the Premier League buy the best players in the world, but some of the clubs take a more austere route to getting the best.
There really isn’t that great a deal in buying an Aguero or a Silva and forking out millions of pounds at them but using your scouting system and getting that one player who doesn’t cost much but gets you the performances is another great feeling. With 16 games of the Premier League done, here is a list of the best transfer deals done by the clubs in the Premier League, all of whom have come at a price lower than £5 million.
5. Andre Ayew
The star of the season for Swansea, until they went on a bit of a slump, Andre Ayew was in fine goal-scoring form for the Swans as he helped them to great results over Chelsea and Manchester United. The former Marseille player was always one of the best players in Ligue 1 and it seems a bit of a surprise that no one took a punt on him.
The Ghanaian was available on a free and Swansea snapped him up, he started his career in the Premier League with three goals in his first four games and won the Player of the Month award. The 25-year-old has done extremely well for the team that has struggled and searches for a new manager after the departure of Garry Monk.
Ayew has already scored six times in just 16 games this season and will be looking to get a few more in. He has tremendous skill and dribbling ability, plus he can score and can pass the ball around with ease. Certainly one of the bargains of the season thus far.
