The summer transfer window has closed for all Premier League sides and every other team except for Tottenham Hotspur have brought in some players to bolster their squads. We have seen some spectacular signings and a few depressing departures.
Here, we turn our attention to the sunnier side and discuss the names who could have a telling impact in the upcoming season. Here are five players to look out for ahead of matchday 1 in the English Premier League.
5. Lucas Torreira - Arsenal
Former Paris Saint-Germain boss, Unai Emery, has brought in five new players to the Emirates and at £26 million, the former Sampdoria midfielder is the most expensive of the lot.
The player was one of Uruguay's brightest spots in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and will hope to have a similar impact for the Gunners, as well. Arsenal will take on the Premier League champions, Manchester City on Sunday.
4. Fred - Manchester United
The Red Devils had to vie with a number of top clubs to get Fred on their books and now that he is finally at the club, United desperately need him to live up to the billing.
The young Brazilian was not given the opportunity to perform for Brazil in the World Cup, but has looked impressive in United's pre-season fixtures. Let's see if he can keep up the good work against a spirited Leicester side.
3. Alisson Becker - Liverpool
After Loris Karius' horror show in the Champions League final, Liverpool desperately needed to sign a keeper in order to show ambition.
The 25-year-old Brazilian became the world's most expensive goalkeeper - only to be toppled by Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga days later. Let's see if he finds it in himself to live up to the hype.
2. Jorginho - Chelsea
Chelsea's prized jewel, Jorginho, will be under the microscope when the west London club go up against Huddersfield, tomorrow. After flirting with Manchester City all summer, the Italian decided to join his former boss at Stamford Bridge.
The former Napoli was far from his best in the FA Community Shield defeat to City. A solid performance this weekend would go a long way in helping him settle in at the club.
1. Kepa Arrizabalaga - Chelsea
One of the most promising young goalkeepers in the world, Kepa Arrizabalaga, became the most expensive shot-stopper in history, on Wednesday, when Chelsea announced him as Thibaut Courtois' successor.
The £71.6m former Athletic Bilbao man has everything in his locker to become one of the best in the league, but must stay prepared for a sea of challenges that come his way, starting from the match against Huddersfield.
