Top 11 best transfers completed on summer deadline day 2023

Premier League clubs were busy on the final day

The transfer deadline day in football is always a chaotic and unpredictable day, but it’s also one of the most exciting times in the football calendar. It’s a day when anything can happen, and that’s what makes it so special. Deadline day is a time of great suspense for fans, as they wait to see if their club will make any last-minute signings.

This deadline day was yet another surprising end to the summer transfer window, with plenty of drama and excitement to keep us entertained. Liverpool and Manchester United both got important pieces of business done.

Here’s a look at the deals done on the busiest day of every season:

11. Ibrahim Sangare to Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest signed the 25-year-old Sangare, the defensive midfielder was signed from Eredivisie’s side PSV, he was a prominent figure in the team and the league. The 6’3 Ivorian is the perfect presence for the club and will suit the physical game of the Premier League. He played 140 games for the Dutch club scoring 15 goals and providing 10 assists during his tenure.

10. Brennan Johnson to Tottenham

The Wales international was Tottenham‘s top target for a new forward this summer, he becomes the ninth signing for Spurs. His move from Nottingham Forest to Tottenham is the club record sale for Forest. They also have a 10 per cent sell-on clause as part of the deal. Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou was very keen on bringing him because he believes Johnson is the ideal replacement for Harry Kane.

9. Mason Greenwood to Getafe

The 21-year-old has not appeared in first-team football since January 2022 and following a six-month internal investigation into his behaviour, Manchester United started looking for new clubs to send him on loan. On the deadline day, Lazio was the front-runner to sign him on loan but that deal fell off. Getafe has now signed him on a season-long loan, the Spanish club will pay some contribution towards his wages and no loan fee.

8. Cole Palmer to Chelsea

The 21-year-old England international was a part of the Manchester City team since the age of 6, the academy prodigy and treble winner has joined Chelsea on a seven-year contract. He will link up with his former teammate Raheem Sterling, fellow academy graduate Romeo Lavia and youth teammate Levi Colwill. Pep also revealed that after his recent performances for the club, there was no option of sending him on loan.

7. Matheus Nunes to Manchester City

Midfielder’s move to City is a club-record sale for Wolves, he went on a striker in the final week of the transfer window to force a move to England. The creative midfielder scored a superb goal last season against Volley, Pep is an admirer of the player, he praised him last season saying “he is the best player in the world”. Nunes and Pep will finally get to work together, Pep will look to bring the best out of him like he has been doing for so many years now.

6. Joao Cancelo to Barcelona

There had been doubts over Cancelo’s arrival, with Bayern Munich have entered the race to sign the 29-year-old, but Man City only gave the green light to Barcelona. He has experience playing for some of the best clubs across Europe. With experience, he has also developed the ability to play at left-back and even in midfield, something he did occasionally at Manchester City. The Portuguese loves attacking as much as he does defending.

5. Ryan Gravenberch to Liverpool

Liverpool needed the numbers if you look at the amount of midfielders Liverpool lost this summer, Gravenberch joins Allister and Szoboszlai as the third midfielder to join the Merseyside club. He spent the last season at Bayern after spending his career at Ajax. Jurgen Klopp might have gotten the final missing piece for his squad this summer.

4. Serge Reguillon to Manchester United

Manchester United have finally sorted out the woes of losing almost every left-back possible either due to injuries or transfers. Reguillon has joined the Red Devils on a season-long loan from Tottenham, he has played for clubs like Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, and his experience can provide solidity to Erik ten Hag’s defence.

3. Joao Felix to Barcelona

Felix joins Cancelo as another Portuguese to go on loan to Barcelona. Due to financial problems at Barcelona, both the Joao’s decided to take a pay cut. Felix did not appear for Atletico Madrid in this year’s LaLiga, Dembele’s departure can help Felix to make it in the Playing XI under Xavi. Felix became Atletico’s club-record signing when he joined in a €126 million deal from Benfica in July 2019, but he struggled to make the intended impact, scoring 34 goals in 131 games for Atletico.

2. Sofyan Amrabat to Manchester United

The Moroccan midfielder had only one club in mind since the beginning of the transfer window, he had the desire to play under Erik ten Hag, he received offers from big clubs but was rejected by half the Europe just join Manchester United. Amrabat boasts versatility, as he’s predominantly a box-to-box midfielder. He has joined United on a season-long deal with an option to buy.

1. Randal Kolo Muani to PSG

The 24-year-old forward, who hails from the Paris suburbs, was a target for PSG all summer and the club confirmed after the transfer window closed that he had signed a five-year contract at the Parc des Princes. He played 50 games and scored 26 goals for the Bundesliga side Frankfurt following his move from Nantes in July last year. PSG have done business this summer to strengthen their attack.
