As the Barclays English Premier League begins this weekend, we take a look at the stars who are expected to impress their managers and clubs:
German wonder kid Mesut Ozil, 24, became the highlight of the transfer deadline day when he completed a mega five-year deal with English club, Arsenal for a whopping 42.4million pounds. Ozil who had most number of assists last season (47) had been a mainstay at the Los Blancos. Arsenal fans will be hoping for Ozil to set the EPL rolling and bring back the glory days!
Chelsea signed winger Willian from Ukrainian club, Shakhtar Donestk for a jaw dropping fee of 30 million pounds. The Samba star was on the verge of signing for London club, Tottenham Hotspurs, but opted for the Blues instead. Willian knows it won’t be easy to compete with the likes of Eden Hazard and Juan Mata in the team but if manager Jose Mourinho sets his eyes on him, expect a bagful of tricks and football skills.
Another Chelsea signing, as Jose Mourinho raided Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala for their Cameroonian star, Samuel Eto’o on a one-year contract worth 4 million pounds a year. The London club missed out on their previous target, Wayne Rooney and rather opted for the former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker. The 32-year old might be at the twilight of his career but Eto’o still possesses the goal threat and can be a valuable addition to the Stamford Bridge club.
Though David Moyes and Manchester United failed in recruiting the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Gareth Bale, they swooped for Everton’s midfield maestro – Marouane Fellaini for a fee of 27.5 million pounds. Former Red Devils defender, Henning Berg also went on to compare Marouane to United legend, Eric Cantona. With the season set to be in a decisive mode, everyone is on a lookout for where Moyes deploys Fellaini and how star striker Robin van Persie benefits from his presence.
We all are waiting to see how there boys fair in the Barclays English Premier League!
