Betting on the Big Boys The Premiership Transfer Window

The Pre-season Premiership transfer window shut on the 1st September and so now the dust has settled, what do the big signings mean for their teams and the fans…and the punters who bet on the big games. M88 a leading sportsbook betting company feel that this premiership season is going to be more exciting than ever.

Let’s look at the top 3 most expensive transfers and see what the future brings.

Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid to Chelsea)

Diego is 25 and plays for the Spanish International team but was born in Brazil. He is joining Chelsea for reported fee of £32m, on a 5 year deal. Chelsea have been in need of a prolific striker and with Diego they may well have found their man. Let’s hope he can give defenders a tough time and keep Chelsea on top of the Premiership, with 8 goals already this season. He’s already paying off that transfer cost.

Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona to Chelsea)

Everyone knows or has heard of Cesc, even my mum, and the Spanish born attacking midfielder who left Barcelona to move to Chelsea to cover the hole left by outgoing Frank Lampard. He’s already had some assists and is proving to be a great asset in that midfield for Chelsea. Chelsea could well be unstoppable this season.

Calum Chambers (Southampton to Arsenal)

Now this boy is a bargain and interclub premiership transfer at its finest, a mere £11m has secured this transfer from Southampton to Arsenal. He’s a solid right back who can also play left if needs be. He’ll be pushing hard for a regular 1st team position and will probably get it.

The Premiership is going to be exciting this season, with not only the transfers into the UK from other countries but also the managers and general public appetite to have more than three team in the running.
