With the Euros now over, it is transfer talk that will dominate the pages of the football world for the next couple of months. There have already been a number of important transfers concerning the Premier League so far this summer. Here are a few of them:
Eden Hazard to Chelsea
The long drawn out public affair finally ended with Chelsea agreeing a transfer fee of £32m for the Belgian superstar. Hazard was by some distance the best player in last season’s Ligue 1. The departure of Lille’s prolific hitman Moussa Sow to Fenerbahce in the January market, looked to end any hope they had of challenging Montpellier, but Hazard stepped into the breach and became the driving force behind Lille reigniting a serious title challenge in the second half of the season, ending the season with an mightily impressive 22 goals and 16 assists.
