The transfer window has closed and the clubs will be getting down to work with their new players and look to amalgamate them into the fold as the clubs strive to achieve their lofty ambitions they have set for themselves this season. While there have been massive deals completed along with bargain deals, it has been enough to keep us on the edge of our seats. With the massive influx of money into the Premier League, we have seen all the teams seemingly punch above their weight in the transfer market and this has enabled us to see a few deals which would have been difficult to even imagine a couple of seasons back. While we will get into the surprise deals of the summer some other time, we will glance briefly at the three best attacking signings made by teams over the summer in this article.
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC (MANCHESTER UNITED)
The obvious name on the top of the pile. Zlatan has been THE headline signing in the beginning of the summer, before United themselves broke the world-record fee for Paul Pogba, taking the mantle from his new teammate. Scoring 38 goals in 36 games in his last season at PSG, he was an absolute steal for the Red Devils who secured his signature on free. And living up to his expectations, he has started off at a canter for his new club. He was brought in to solve their goal scoring woes and he seems to be doing exactly that.
ALVARO NEGREDO (MIDDLESBROUGH)
Middlesbrough have made several splashes in the market and have acquired several big name players. At the forefront is ex-Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo who has been brought in on loan to provide sharpness upfront seldom seen from Boro in their Championship season.
And by the looks of it, he has settled in well. Scoring in his very first appearance he has struck up a fine partnership with Gaston Ramirez and the club faithful believe their budding understanding will go a long way in preserving their top-flight status.
WILFRIED BONY (STOKE CITY)
Stoke City pulled off one of the major deals of the deadline day as they snapped up Wilfried Bony’s signature from Manchester City who were eager to off-load the striker. Although the Ivorian has endured a frustrating time for the Sky Blues, it has been widely attributed as a case of square peg in a round hole. He is expected to provide a steady flow of goals from the chances created by the numerous attacking players at their disposal. He will be eager to get his career back on track is touted to be a success for the Potters.
