Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Ever since more money are pumped into the beautiful game of football, there have been an incredible upsurge in the confidence of European teams in going to the transfer market to recruit players of their choice for a bargain or premium.

While the above statement is an undeniable fact about clubs going into the transfer market to spend big, it must also be noted that the just concluded 2022-23 campaign in terms of business done in the market for some reason wasn’t a success for some team.

Having look at how this season pan-out in terms of disappointing signings made in the English Premier League, we’ll look at players who failed to lived up to the expectation for the 2022-23 season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – (Chelsea, £12m)

Aubameyang move to Chelsea for £12m seemed surprising when it was announced considering how lively his mode was at Barcelona before he joined the Blues last summer.

Though some school of thought will argue the Gabonese wasn’t giving enough playing time at Chelsea, however, even with the little playing time he was given he couldn’t prove himself in the shirt of Chelsea netting just three goals in all competitions.

With Mauricio Pochettino set to take over come July, both Chelsea and Aubameyang will wants to sever their relationship going forward with Barcelona rumored to be his preferred destination.

Arthur Melo – (Liverpool, Loan)

Arthur’s move to Liverpool in the summer was nothing but a waste of resources and time for both parties, due to the Brazilian inability to stay fit since he joined from Juventus.

The Brazilian was brought onboard due to Liverpool’s dye-need of more legs in the midfield and for the rotation of Fabinho and Henderson, but due to injuries and loss of form the marriage between both parties couldn’t work out.

The Reds are understood to have paid a loan fee close to £4million for the Brazilian’s services despite not getting anything in return on the pitch from Melo.

Raheem Sterling – (Chelsea, £47.5m)

When Manchester City decided to let go of Sterling last summer it seems the Cityzens hierarchy are high on water or they weren’t thinking straight, but with the England international bad form at Chelsea we could understand why they let go of him.

With all of the money spent in the transfer market by the new owner Todd Boehly, Chelsea still doesn’t look like a serious team who looks ready to compete with the big boys both in the league and Europe.

Having said of all of that, the bad form of Chelsea as a team also rub-off on Sterling as he struggled throughout the season to justify his eye-watering price-tag from City.

Mykhailo Mudryk – (Chelsea, £88.5m)

It will be an injustice to football enthusiasts not to have the Ukrainian on the most disappointing signings in Premier League for the year 2023 on this list, considering the premium money Chelsea paid to signed him.

Perhaps going into a new season he could unlock his form and consistency with Chelsea, particularly with a new manager in town, however, it’s left to be seen if Mudryk would deliver next season for the Blues.

While his first season in the Premier League looks embarrassing, it must be said that the Ukraine international seems to be that kind of player that could come good for Chelsea next season.

Jesse Lingard – (Nottingham Forest, Free)

Over the years in the transfer market we’ve seen lot of players join a team on a free and went on to out-perform those who joined for premium money in the market, but in Lingard’s case it’s a bit different.

With great financial reward and how well he performed during his loan spell at West Ham, many thought he’s going to lit-up Nottingham Forest with brilliant performance and goals but unfortunately the former United winger is ranked among flop of the season.

Thankfully, Forest were able to secure their spot in the league going into the new season, with that in mind we could only hope he gets to surprise us positively next season with his performance.

Marc Cucurella – (Chelsea, £63m)

Marc Cucurella is another Chelsea’s player signed for premium money but failed to deliver, despite coming highly recommend due to his form and consistency at Brighton.

Before the Spaniard left Brighton he looked like a world beater for Seagulls, but since he left the Amex Stadium he’s been a shadow of himself in Chelsea’s color.

Defensively and attacking wise, Cucurella has failed woefully in Chelsea’s color this season with the Spaniard recording just two assists throughout the just concluded campaign for the London giant.

Richarlison de Andrade – (Tottenham Hotspur, £60m)

If there’s any game that summed up the Brazilian pitiful campaign in the colors of Tottenham, it is the game against Liverpool in April where he scored his first Premier League goal.

Richarlison’s arrival to Tottenham Hotspur was a great news to savour considering his form and consistency at Everton, but he couldn’t replicate all of those form and consistency under Antonio Conte when he joined.

While it’s quite easy for Tottenham fans to point fingers to Richarlison as a flop of the season, it must be noted too that the North London outfit didn’t cover themselves in glory with the kind of abysmal performance they shone-out this season.
