Erling Haaland and Darwin Núñez have grabbed all the headlines this summer. The two big moves to the top two clubs in the Premier League.

We have taken a look at a couple of moves that could also benefit the buyer this summer.

Erling Haaland

Everyone wanted Erling Haaland, but he has ended up at the club his father once played for. The Norwegian already had a connection to the club and attended matches involving City as a boy.

He has joined Pep Guardiola’s Premier League winning side and the big question has been ‘how will he fit in?’. Guardiola will have already worked on that and will have his players adapt to the new focal point in attack.

Haaland is expected to hit the ground running at City and will no doubt be a frightening prospect for defenders both domestically and in Europe this season.

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling won’t have the chance to link up with Haaland in attack, having left City after a successful stint in Manchester.

The England international is still only 27 and will become a key part of Thomas Tuchel’s attack this season, adding a wealth of experience to the team.

Darwin Núñez

Liverpool picked up the big number nine from Benfica, a club who have produced some of the finest talents in Europe in recent times, including Manchester City centre-back Ruben Dias.

Darwin Núñez was a threat in the Community Shield over Manchester City last weekend and proved his worth by coming off the bench to score and assist in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw away to Fulham on Saturday.

A real handful in attack, he adds pace and power to Jurgen Klopp’s side, giving a new dimension to last season’s runners-up.

Gabriel Jesus

Gabriel Jesus has been on fire in pre-season and looked impressive at times in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on the opening day of the new Premier League season.

A central role with more responsibility could suit the 25-year-old after his time in and out of the team at Manchester City. Under Mikel Arteta, he will be working with a coach who knows him from his time as City assistant manager.

Christian Eriksen

United have so far failed in their attempt to land Frenkie de Jong, with the Dutchman happy to stay with Barcelona. In what has been a quiet window for United, who need to add to their squad, they have picked up a top-class midfielder in Christian Eriksen on a free transfer.

The Denmark international will add quality to a midfield that needs improvement.
