We didn't even reach the half-season and some players have already paid for the fact that the clubs brought them. We will therefore look at the list of the top five summer reinforcements that have already justified its status.

Kurt Zouma (West Ham)

Kurt left Stamford Bridge this summer after he saw that players were accumulating in his position and that it would be difficult to get space to play. At that time, Chelsea had six players who could cover the position of central defender (with three defenders) and the plan was to bring Jules Kounde. Zouma realized it was going to be difficult to play in the first team and asked to go. West Ham came to the fore, the negotiations lasted a little longer because the "hammers" were not ready to pay as much as the "blues" asked for. However, in the end they relented and it paid off. Zouma quickly became a starter and formed a great time with Ogbonna.

Conor Gallagher (Crystal Palace)

I don't think there is a Palace fan who was not skeptical when he saw that the club from Selhurst Park brings young and quite inexperienced players. Yes, the team needed just that. Team rejuvenation. That's what they did. One of those young and inexperienced reinforcements was Conor Gallagher. Brought on loan from Chelsea, the young midfielder did fantastically well in the Premier League and showed that he can play at the highest level. Unfortunately for the fans at Selhurst, Gallagher will return to Chelsea at the end of the season, and there is absolutely no chance that the "blues" will let this pearl not play for them next year.

Maxwell Cornet (Burnley)

Turf Moors are not fans of players who are not from Great Britain or Ireland. Until the arrival of Cornet, only three players did not come from the mentioned countries. However, in the summer transfer window, Burnley decided to deviate from his classic transfer policy. A Lyon footballer was brought in who immediately bought the fans. Kornet probably doesn't fit into Burnley’s defensive football, but he somehow managed to become exactly what Burnley needs.

Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal)

The young goalkeeper quickly showed why he was brought. Arteta immediately put him in the position of the first keeper of the net as he came, and Ramsdale made a phenomenal debt. Since he is on goal and the defense seems safer. It was obvious how much he communicates with the defenders, something that Leno did not do properly, obviously. Aaron has defended so well so far that some England fans have called for him to be the first goalkeeper in the national team as well. Although it is not planned for Southgate at the moment, if he continues like this, there is no doubt that we will soon see him as first goalkeeper of English national team.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

This list could not pass without him. Although United are not brilliant this season, Cristiano Ronaldo is doing it. So far, he has saved the team with his goals four or five times. He records great numbers and there is no doubt that the "red devils" would be in an even worse situation if there were no Portuguese. On the other hand, the question is how much more can Ronaldo do. He is 36 years old and plays at a very strong pace. United will have to save some of their main weapons if they want Cristiano to continue solving the nets. Still, there is no doubt that his arrival has already paid off at Old Trafford.
