These players have been the difference maker since joining the club in winter transfer window

Premier League records were broken once more during the January transfer window, with Chelsea alone going on another spending binge that cost them almost to £300 million.

By paying £107 million for the World Cup champion, they surpassed the previous record-highest sum ever spent by a British club. Graham Potter's team.

At this vital stage in the season, when many clubs are looking to make a late surge at both ends of the standings, 65 players have joined new teams in the top division, we found out the top five players who have made an instant mark at their new club.

Joao Felix

Felix has begun to make an impression during his brief stint in the Spanish capital with a handful of goals in his seven games, becoming another Chelsea addition to make their impact.

His ability to choose a pass in the closing stages has been a nice improvement to Chelsea's hitherto underwhelming offence. He performs best when positioned in-behind a striker, and when used in such a position, he has shown fans why Atletico Madrid paid £111 million for him in 2019.

Enzo Fernandez

With a price tag of £107 million, Fernandez arrived with a lot riding on his shoulders. Nevertheless, the Argentine, who was voted Young Player of the Tournament at the World Cup, has settled in into Graham Potter's midfield and doesn't appear to be moving anytime in the near future.

The youngster has been a constant for Chelsea for good cause thanks to his unrelenting tackling, accurate passing, and eagerness to fight for every ball. One of Chelsea's biggest success stories during its up-and-down campaign.

Cody Gakpo

With PSV Eindhoven, Gakpo burst into the scene as one of Europe's top performers this season. When Liverpool beat rival Manchester United to his acquisition in January, it seemed like a heaven-sent partnership with Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah. Gakpo has furthermore shown himself to be a determined player and outlet for a team that has unusually lacked vitality and vivacity up front.

Alex Moreno

With Lucas Digne being abandoned by Unai Emery, Moreno entered an Aston Villa team that was in dire need of talent down the wing. But, he has already displayed glimpses of the characteristics that have made him one of LaLiga's most desirable defenders.

Although the 29-year-old has made mistakes, one of which resulted in a goal against Leicester, he has shown that he is a wonderful distributor of the ball and a determined playmaker for Unai Emery's team.

Leandro Trossard

As Mykhailo Mudryk chose Chelsea over the Gunners, Arsenal moved quickly to sign Trossard from Brighton for £27 million. With a goal and six assists in 12 games, the Belgian attacker has quickly proven to any sceptics that they were wrong to question Mikel Arteta's interest in signing him.

It required him four games to make it into the starting team, but he has played five of the six matches in the Premier League since then. He has played either up front as well as on the flank for the league leaders, scoring three first-half assists in a 3-0 victory against Fulham while doing so.
