The next Thierry Henry or Cristiano Ronaldo?

The 2017 summer transfer window once again saw Premier League clubs splash the cash as all 20 clubs seek varying degrees of success during the 2017/18 campaign. Big money moves were once again the talk of the window in the upper echelons of the league, where the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool, all forked out huge sums for players they hope will guide them to glory.

Each summer it's become the norm in England for fans to sit back and watch to see if their team is willing to part with the cash and attract top names to their football club. It's not just the big clubs either who are spending huge sums, with the likes of Burnley, Watford, and Swansea among the lower half of the league to make big investments.

While over the years we have seen plenty of big name signings fail to impress - Robinho to Man City and Fernando Torres's move to Chelsea spring to mind - there are always going to be those who succeed and go on to be big hits in the Premiership.

Plenty of players coming in this summer will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, and Sergio Aguero. Who of the new arrivals look like they can go on to force a career at the top in England?

What is now looking firmly like a loss on Chelsea's part for letting the Egyptian winger leave the club two seasons ago, is very much looking like Liverpool's gain.

The pacey winger has made a tremendous start to life back in the Premier League, after reinvigorating his career during his time in Italy with Roma.

Salah has hit two league goals already for the Reds and looks like being a key cog in what is an exciting forward line containing Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. Salah's ability to get up the pitch at great speed looks to be something which is going to be hugely beneficial to Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp.

Before being withdrawn against Man City last weekend, Salah was arguably the best player on the field and gave Nicolas Otamendi a torrid time down the right hand side. A cracking goal against Burnley followed, and if he can continue his good start, there is no doubt Salah will go on to be a huge Premier League success.
