League sides were very active in the summer transfer window, but some of their
signings eventually did not prove to be fruitful. The likes of Vincent Janssen,
Ahmed Musa and Simone Zaza have been playing below expectations in the
2016/2017 Premier League and they are seen as the worst acquisitions of the
season. For this transfer special we teamed up with Johnny Grant, editor at FootballPredictions.com.
impressing with AZ Alkmaar in the 2015/2016 season Vincent Janssen joined
Tottenham Hotspur on July 12, 2016 for £17 million. The Dutch attacker scored
27 goals in 34 appearances for AZ in his last season in Eredivisie and many
people expected that he would help Spurs improve their game. However, Vincent
Janssen has been in Harry Kane’s shadow ever since he joined the White Hart
Lane outfit and he failed to impress in matches he started. Janssen has scored
only two goals in 23 appearances for Tottenham and he did not take advantage of
Harry Kane’s injury. The Dutch forward has a four-year contract with Mauro
Pochettino’s team, but the club chiefs are considering the option of selling
the 22-year-old striker in the summer transfer window.
Musa was producing outstanding performances in the Russian Premier League
during his spell with CSKA Moscow. The Nigerian forward scored 42 goals in 125
appearances in the league for the Armeitsy and many football predictions were
pointing towards him to become a significant Premier League star. However, the
new Leicester City man has been struggling to adapt to the new surroundings and
it has to be noted that he has netted only two goals in 20 league fixtures for
the Foxes. Ahmed Musa found the net in a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace on day
9 of the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign, but he has not been as impressive
in the English top flight ever since. Leicester City chiefs spent £69 million
on six signings and, no doubt, they did not make a good choice this time out.
the years Simone Zaza
has established himself as one of the best Italian attackers. Zaza represents
the Azzurri on the international stage and many people expected that he would
make a great progress in the Premier League. However, the West Ham United
striker was struggling to find his best form in the first half of the season
and the former Juventus man failed to find the net in eight appearances for the
Hammers. As a result, West Ham owners decided to end Simone Zaza’s loan from
Juventus in the January transfer window. It seems as if a move to Spain suited
him as he has scored four goals for los Che in the second half of the season.
likes of Borja Baston, Andros Townsend, Moussa Sissoko, Sofiane Boufal and
Jordon Ibe are regarded as poor signings as well and, speaking of goalkeepers,
Manchester City’s £15 million acquisition Claudio Bravo is undisputedly one of
the worst signings of the season. Taking everything into account, owners of the
Premier League clubs should look before their leap in the future if they are to
do a good job in transfer windows. There will be a lot more firework to
expect in the upcoming rounds! Find all free tips and predictions brought by Johnny
