Goal.com ranked the 21 most disappointing transfers in the Premier League for the 2022-2023 season on Thursday.
“The Premier League has had an incredible year. Transfer market spending across the league reached unprecedented levels. In the summer alone, £2.1 billion was spent, and in January, £2.8 billion was spent, with Chelsea in particular spending heavily.” “With that kind of money, there were inevitably some big mistakes,” they added.
At the top of the list is the name of the player who made the most money. He joined Spurs last summer for a record fee of up to £60 million ($984 million) with options, but has only managed three goals and three assists in Ligue 1. He has more yellow cards (three) than goals.
Goal.com wrote: “There was a time when everyone was excited about Tottenham’s summer transfer window, but it seems like a long time ago now. 메이저놀이터 With the additions of Yves Bissouma, Cristian Romero, and now Heurelho, Tottenham were expected to be title contenders, but the reality was anything but. . In another chaotic season, the Frenchman struggled. He scored just one goal in the league and failed to break into the starting lineup.”
Kulibaly, also known as “Kim Min-jae senior,” was ranked ninth. He left longtime club Napoli last summer to join Chelsea, a move that was highly anticipated as he was one of the best performers in Serie A at Napoli and had established himself as a club legend. Napoli fans were outraged at the news of his departure and the signing of Kim Min-jae.
However, it turned out differently. Kim has been perfect since arriving in Serie A and has become one of the best center backs in Europe. Thanks to him, Napoli conceded the fewest goals in the league and won their first league title in 33 years. It’s the only Scudetto in the club’s history outside of the Diego Maradona era.
Koulibaly, on the other hand, has struggled. He has struggled to adapt to the Premier League and has been heavily criticized. While he has gradually found his feet in the league over the course of 24 games, his performances have not been worthy of his £15.6 million price tag.
As Goal.com explains, “Chelsea swooped for Napoli’s powerful Koulibaly to replace Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. It was touted as a big signing, but he has looked a shadow of the giant he was in Serie A. After a forgettable debut season, his future at Chelsea is already in doubt.”
As the media pointed out, Koulibaly has been the subject of transfer speculation after just one season at the club. There was even talk that he could return to Napoli as a replacement for Kim Min-jae. It’s a reversal of fortunes after just one year with Kim Min-jae. In Italy, it is already being said that Kim has surpassed Koulibaly.
Unlike Koulibaly, his stock is rising by the day. He has received offers from Manchester United, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Newcastle United, and other teams.
His price tag is expected to nearly triple. Napoli paid 18 million euros ($25.6 billion) for Kim in July last year, but his buyout clause is now over 50 million euros ($71.2 billion). Given the competition for his signature, it’s not unlikely that a transfer fee over and above his buyout clause will occur.
Aside from Higuain and Koulibaly, other disappointing signings include Marc Cucurella (Chelsea), Calvin Phillips (Manchester City), Mikhail Mourinho (Chelsea), and Jesse Lingard (Nottingham). Of the 21 total, Chelsea had the most players with five, followed by Liverpool, Tottenham, Wolverhampton, Leeds and West Ham with two each.
