Summer Transfer Window Heats Up

Aleksandar Tonev Summer Transfer Window Heats Up

Aleksandar Tonev joins Aston Villa

World Cup qualification is on our minds this summer, but we still have some important transfer window news to bring you – keeping you up to date with the major moves in and out of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at a few of the bigger moves of the past few days:

  • Manchester City have splashed the cash in the most significant move of the summer thus far, bringing in Brazilian Fernandinho from Shakhtar. Fernandinho has Champions League experience and is a box-to-box midfielder who should slot in alongside Yaya Toure in City’s new-look starting XI. That said, I wonder what it means for Gareth Barry – who has played such a pivotal role for the club over the past few seasons, and for Javi Garcia.
  • Aston Villa have brought in Bulgarian star Aleksandar Tonev from Lech Poznan. Will Tonev be enough to convince Belgian Christian Benteke to stick around for another season or two? Tonev is a winger who could provide the consistent supply Benteke so awfully needs.
  • And Michael Laudrup and Swansea continue their Spanish revolution after their league cup winning campaign featured star Spaniards Michu, Angel Rangel and Chico Flores along the way. Jose Canas is the latest addition this summer, he may be an accomplished asset though he won’t be a Fantasy Premier League factor – he operates as a defensive midfielder with little eye for goal.

    If city don’t go out of their way to accommodate navas I fear he will be a flop, especially with this reoccurring homesickness stuff that plagues him. If they manage him right though, I like his play a lot.
