10 Premier League players already regretting failed summer moves
As the transfer window closes, these 10 Premier League mistakes are already counting down the minutes until January rolls around.
Amazing Nakamba – Aston Villa
According to reports, Steven Gerrard is reluctant to let Nakamba leave Villa Park due to uncertainty surrounding another of his midfielders heading into deadline day. Now, Douglas Luiz is set to stay until January, and the world of Zimbabwe can expect a tough job.
Gerrard, of course, described Nakamba as a great man after taking over from Dean Smith last season. Since then, however, injuries and the arrival of Boubacar Kamara have pushed Club Brugge’s former ace down.
Frederic Guilbert – Aston Villa
Earlier in the summer, Guilbert admitted he did not expect to remain an Aston Villa player in 2022/23. It was a surprise for him, then, that a number of Ligue 1 clubs – including Lyon – opted to release the right-back from his Villa Park club (L’Equipe).
Guilbert is reportedly training with the reserves at Bodymoor Heath these days.
Jairo Riedewald – Crystal Palace
Last week, Patrick Vieira admitted that Riedewald would be allowed to leave if the right offer came before Thursday’s deadline. Absolutely not. As a result, the talented Dutchman is in danger of becoming the forgotten man at Selhurst Park; though his flexibility still comes in handy in the event of injury-problems.
Hakim Ziyech – Chelsea
The appointment of Graham Potter as a replacement for Thomas Tuchel, in theory, will see the likes of Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and friends given a clear platform at Stamford Bridge. But Potter’s penchant for pace in wide spaces meant Ziyech – gifted, sometimes charming but often frustrating – had to look nervously over his shoulder at Armando Broja.
In hindsight, he has been part of an Ajax team that will once again take the Champions League by storm.
Araana – Everton
As a strong and resilient Everton side held Liverpool to a long shot in the Merseyside derby last weekend, Amadou Onana and Tom Davies proved they can be relied upon to go to the finals. legs of the Premier League. Onana’s enthusiasm and energy saw the £35 million summer signing replace 31-year-old Allan in Frank Lampard’s pecking order.
After Serie A outfit Salernitana rejected a move for the Brazilian, it looks like he’ll have to get used to a lot of media coverage.
Josh Onomah – Fulham
Josh Onoham and Steven Alzate saw off deadline day moves as West Brom lost 11th hours. Alzate, at least, always ended up in the Liege Standard. Onomah, however, seems to be denied a different approach. No longer a part of Marco Silva’s plans at Craven Cottage, he is now stuck in that dreaded ‘bomb squad’ (Athletic).
Nat Phillips – Liverpool
Joe Gomez, Joel Matip were injured a Ibrahima Konate for Jurgen Klopp to drop Phillips into his starting XI for the first time in a year and a half during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace in August. After the man known as ‘Bolton Baresi’ struggled to manage Wilfried Zaha’s sharp move, one suspected he would be waiting for another chance.
When all was well, Phillips was Liverpool’s fifth half.
Jamal Lewis – Newcastle United
Lewis was, at one point, a target for a Nice side that was building a team full of Premier League mistakes. The £15 million former Norwich City left-back, however, will not spend the summer alongside Ross Barkley, Nicolas Pepe, Aaron Ramsey, Morgan Schneiderlin and Joe Bryan on the French riviera.
Instead, he looks set to spend the next few months watching Matt Targett cement his place in Eddie Howe’s XI.
Theo Walcott – Southampton
it should not be like this. In 2020, Walcott will return to his South Coast home. Two years ago, you might have forgotten that England was capped 47 times immediately at St Mary’s.
Walcott, amid interest from Cardiff and West Brom, has little interest in relegating him to the Championship. But second level football is better than no football.
Pape Matar Sarr – Tottenham Hotspur
Had Rodrigo Bentancur not been injured in the 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest, Sarr could have left for another loan before the 11pm deadline. However, due to concerns about his midfield depth, Antonio Conte decided to retain the 19-year-old’s services and saw Bentancur return to full fitness immediately after the close the window.
Young Sarr wants first-team football if he builds on the strength he showed across the Channel at Metz. He couldn’t get it in north London.
