Buying players during off-season could be a tricky business for the buying and selling clubs. Everyone including players’ agent looks out for the best deals. For some players, making a move to the Premier League is a dream come true.

As the league kicks off this evening, we look at three deals that may prove invaluable to different clubs at the end of the season.

Nicolas Pepe – Arsenal from Lille
The 24-year-old Ivorian scored 23 goals last season for Lille, one of the biggest clubs in France. His addition to the premier league club will go a long way to help add more threat to Arsenal’s attack.

The Gunners will be more focused on getting back into the top four than winning the league, but Pepe is a player who can keep this team in the race early.

Christian Pulisic – Chelsea from Dortmund
Though he officially joined Chelsea in January, the USA national team captain has been tipped by pundits to fill in the space of Eden Hazard. Pulisic is the big-name signing for Chelsea in an important year for the club which is struggling with a two-window transfer ban from FIFA. He has been exceptional during the preseason games, scoring twice in a game. Chelsea will depend on him to contend for anything this season.

Harry Maguire – Manchester United from Leicester City
Leicester City’s Maguire is one of the best defenders in the premier league last season and his move to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is an upgrade for the club.

Maguire is physical, tough, good in the air and as hard of a worker as you’ll find. United likely won’t contend for the league this season, but Maguire is a guy who will make a difference quickly.
