Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham transfers voted best deals of the summer by Premier League agents


Premier League agents have voted Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham transfers among the best deals of the summer window, as part of a recent report.

It follows a very busy transfer window for all three London clubs as they look to continue their trajectory towards the top end of the Premier League. For the Gunners, a lot of the window was about building on their title challenge last season to try and push them over the line this time around, with over £200million spent in doing so.

Their north London rivals Spurs have embarked on a new journey with Ange Postecoglou appointed as head coach and a host of signings made to fit his style of play. Both of those teams contrast the Blues though, who have spent heavily once again to land youthful stars for their project under the new ownership.

After four games of the Premier League season, their fortunes have been contrasting as the first international break comes towards a close. Both Tottenham and Arsenal currently sit on ten points, taking three wins and a draw so far, while Chelsea have just four points after one win, one draw and two defeats.

It remains to be seen how the remaining 34 games of the season will pan out and how successful each team will be as a result of that. However, their business in the transfer window is likely to be heavily reflected in the success or failure that follows in the coming months.

After the summer transfer window has come to a close, The Athletic held a survey with unnamed agents to discuss the dealings around the league. One topic was the best deal of the market, with James Maddison winning by a landslide with nine votes to his name following his £40million switch from Leicester to Tottenham.

"At that level, even before the season had started, I thought it was, pound for pound, the best deal," one agent said on the playmaker in the report. "When you look at some of the transfer fees for players that aren’t even proven — look at Cole Palmer. I know they [Chelsea] are buying potential, but the guy has played about 15 league games and they’ve paid more for him than Spurs did for Maddison.”

Arsenal's move for Declan Rice came in second, registering three votes after he made the £105million move from West Ham early in the market. One Chelsea name managed to get on the list with a singular vote in the form of Deivid Washington, who joined from Santos, while another Spurs name makes the list in defender Micky van de Ven.

It remains to be seen just how those deals will pan out for their respective clubs, however they will certainly be hopeful that they match the expectations set out in the survey.
