This summer clubs have already been busy bringing in new players ahead of the new season.
A lot of top flight clubs have brought in talent from abroad.
Here I will take a look at some of the foreign talent that arrived at Premier League clubs this summer.
Lucas Podolski (Arsenal)
The Germany international could prove a bargain at £12.5million, if he can recapture the goalscoring form of last season with Koln. The 27 year-old has an impressive strike rate for his national side, but less so in club football.
Poldi as he’s known to his teammates, has bags of experience at the top level, having also played for Bayern Munich earlier in his career. Podolski arrival could be vital with Gunners captain Robin Van Persie looking to leave the Emirates.
Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)
The 25 year-old arrives at the Emirates Stadium from French champions Montpellier for an undisclosed fee. The striker played a crucial part in Montpellier Ligue One title victory last season, scoring 21 goals and being the focal point of their attack.
His form lead to a call-up to the French international squad and he was included in the France squad for Euro 2012. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has a history of polishing rough diamonds and Giroud could just be another one.
Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
The Belgium international is one of the most highly-rated young players in Europe and was being chased by a host of top teams. The youngster decided to join Chelsea from French club Lille for a fee around £32million earlier this summer.
The midfielder has everything a player needs to be a world-class attacking midfielder. He has vision, passing skills and an eye for goal. Chelsea may have paid a big fee, but they have signed a big player for that fee.
The 26 year-old has arrived at Swansea for just £2million from La Liga side Rayo Vallecano. His new boss at Swansea Michael Laudrup described him as a ‘bargain buy’ and he could just be one of the signings of the summer.
Swansea were in need of an attacking midfielder to replace Gylfi Sigurdsson, who decided to join Tottenham instead of the Welsh club. Michu was one of the biggest successes of La Liga last season for Vallecano, as he fired home 15 goals in La Liga to help his tiny club survive the drop.
Marko Marin (Chelsea)
Germany international Marko Marin arrives from Werder Bremen for a fee of £7million. Marin could prove to be better value than Hazard. The young midfielder is a clever player, who can create and score goals from midfield.
Shinji Kagawa (Manchester United)
The Japanese playmaker arrives at Manchester United from Bundesliga Dortmund for a fee around £12.5million. Kagawa has played a vital role in Dortmund becoming the dominant force in German football in the past few seasons.
He was the brains, the fulcrum of the Dortmund midfield. Not only did he create goals from midfield but he was a regular on the score sheet for the German champions. Kagawa could be the answer to United’s midfield creativity problems.
Fabio Borini (Liverpool)
The Italian striker arrived from Roma for an undisclosed fee this summer, believed to be around £10.5million. The striker impressed with his displays at Roma last season, finding the net nine times in 24 appearances in Serie A.
This isn’t Borini’s first taste of English football. The 21 year-old was previously in the Chelsea academy and enjoyed a loan spell under Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers during his time at Swansea. Borini was included in Italy’s Euro 2012 squad, but didn’t make an appearance at the tournament.
With all the new arrivals to the Premier League this summer the new English season promises to be a really exciting one. There is still plenty of time for teams to add more players to their squads and even more talented players could arrive in the English top flight this summer. Exciting times lay ahead.
Who will prove to be the best new arrival to the Premier League in the new season?
