The transfer window is now closed; the club has updated their 25-man squad

Yes, the transfer window is now closed, and all the hopes or letdowns have been realised. Now that has been done and dusted, the club have confirmed their entire 25-man Premier League squad for this season.

Once the transfer window had closed, it started to dawn on the fans that there was no big-money move for a central midfielder or even an attacking forward in the final few days. Nevertheless, Fabio Paratici did make significant progress in rebuilding the squad throughout the summer.

On the other side of the coin, the club managed to remove a lot of deadwood, such as Juan Foyth, Paulo Gazzaniga, Joe Hart, Danny Rose, Erik Lamela, Toby Alderweireld, Moussa Sissoko and Serge Aurier. At the same time, some were let out on loan.

Arrivals were Pierluigi Gollini, Bryan Gil, Cristian Romero, Pape Matar Sarr and Emerson Royal, with Sarr being loaned back to Metz for the remainder of the season.

However, we did capture – or if you prefer – not let go of a £150 million rated player, which the likes of City, United and even Chelsea were thinking about capturing. Levy’s stubborn resistance was City’s loss but our gain.

But all great excitements come to an end (the transfer window), and once the dust started to settle, we saw what is what and what is what is a 25-man squad that Nuno Espirito Santo has at his disposal so that he can mould as he sees fit (hopefully into a Premier League-winning side).

Thoughts

Nuno has done a fantastic job so far with what he had, but now he has additional players to add to our impressive start. It is too early to see if we can sustain our top four place, or it was just a blip before the avalanche falls into the sea of doom.

Overall, the squad certainly looks in a much better shape than it was last season, thanks to Nuno. I am an optimistic person, so I hope that our great start will continue until the final whistle at the end of the season.

Stay safe, Glenn
