With the influx of new TV rights money coming in at the end of the season, several Premier League sides embarked on hefty spending sprees in anticipation.
And whiles some of those players brought in over the summer have taken well to Premier League football, there are others that have struggled to adapt to the demands and rigours of the English game.
Listed below are 10 players, half of whom are already on their way to stardom in the English top flight, while the other half have so far failed to get off the ground.
Dimitri Payet – West Ham United
The Frenchman wasn’t a conventional household name before he linked up with The Hammers, but has so far been at the forefront of the club’s charge up the table thanks to his skill and pace on the wing. Notching five goals and three assists in the league hasn’t harmed his progress either!
Divock Origi – Liverpool
Though he was actually signed last summer, the Belgian youngster only linked up with his new teammates this season following a loan spell back at Lille. Injuries to Christian Benteke and Danny Ings have paved the way for him to get an extended run of games under his belt, but a lack of experience and match sharpness have seem him fail to live up to the hype.
