Here is our list of the top ten summer signings for the coming Barclays Premier League season:
10) Gary Medel
Affectionately nicknamed the Pitbull from his time at Universidad Catolica, Medel will prove to be worth his weight in gold for Cardiff this season. A tenacious midfield battler who will aggressively protect the defence, he is equally at home at anywhere along the back-line if called upon. The example he sets on and off the pitch will be crucial for Cardiff City’s fight to survive their debut season in the Premier League.

Here is a rundown of the rumoured biggest transfers of the upcoming transfer window:
Radamel Falcao to Monaco
Monaco, managed currently by Claudio Ranieri, made headlines last summer with the signing of highly rated River Plate youngster Lucas Ocampos for €16 million. The Russian billionaire in charge of AS Monaco, Dmitry Rybolovlev, is determined to once again help the club scale the heights of French football and he sees the signing Falcao as a major stepping stone in this development that will serve to attract other stars to the club. It is said if the move happens Falcao will double his wage and there may even be a clause inserted into the contract which could allow him to leave the club after a season as Monaco are currently in a dispute with the rest of French football concerning their laxed tax laws – something the other clubs feel gives them an unfair advantage. The speculated price of the transfer is rumoured to be around €60m.

Here is a small piece on South American football players who will be gracing a league near you this season (that’s if you’re in Europe):
Dorlan Pabon to Parma
The Atletico Nacional forward set the group stages of the Copa Libertadores alight, tearing ahead of Neymar, Damiao and co as the tournaments early leading goalscorer. He is the owner of a thunderous right foot and isn’t shy to use it. His tendency to shoot when given any opportunity does tend to draw some complaints from team-mates but this guy will give us a few jaw dropping moments in Serie A this season.
