With the English Premiership now underway, we look at 6 of the most exciting players to join our illustrious league for the 2015-16 season.

Memphis Depay

There's been a lot of hype around Memphis Depay in Holland over the past few years, and with 28 goals last year for PSV Eindhoven it's not hard to see why. The new no.7 had a tidy debut but much more will be expected going forward, especially with the departure of Angel Di Maria.

He is fast, skilful and any Youtube clip will show you he packs a rocket of a free kick. He has all the attributes to be able to adapt to the premier league so Manchester United fans will be anticipating big things from him in his opening season.


Roberto Firmino

Firmino was linked with a number of clubs in the summer and it was Liverpool that came up trumps in the end, landing the Brazilian from German club Hoffenheim for a fairly hefty fee of £29 million.

He has broke into double figures in terms of goals in the last two years in Germany with the 13-14 a standout campaign (22 goals in all competitions).

Liverpool fans will no doubt be excited to see him pair up with fellow Brazilian Philippe Coutinho just behind the front man, they will possess an intimidatingly skilful attack this season

Question marks may surround whether he will settle into Premiership life, many South American players have played in English football but only a handful can be deemed as succesful.


Divock Origi

Divock Origi arrived at Liverpool last summer but was immediately loaned back out to his former club Lille.

The Belgian has shown promise on the international stage which is probably what enticed Liverpool into the purchase as its fair to say he's hardly been prolific in the French league. He can play up top and on the wing but prefers the former.

With the arrival of Danny Ings and Cristian Benteke to bolster the attack alongside Daniel Sturridge the question remains of how many minutes will Origi be able to get this season once Sturridge is back to full fitness?

As Liverpool, like most, opt for the 1 up front. His best chance of getting the in the team may be from out wide. He's definitely a potential star, but competition for places may well hinder his development this season.


Bastian Schweinsteiger

A player that really needs no introduction.

The German world cup winner and Bayern Munich legend has won pretty much everything in the game as well as achieving iconic status for both club and country.

This season the question wont be is he good enough the question will be can he regain his fitness? His former manager Pep Guardiola has been quoted as saying that he hasn’t been fit for 3 seasons now which isn't exactly what you want to hear if you're a Manchester United fan.

On his debut you could see the experience was there, he was dictating every pass from every player on the pitch almost.

Leadership may well be one of the most important attribute he brings with him to Old Trafford, there will be no compromise from him on the pitch or in the changing rooms and that will drive others forward.


Max Gradel

Many Leeds United fans will be familiar with Bournemouth's new tricky winger.

He won both the fans and players player of the year award during his time at the Yorkshire club. He looked very dangerous on his cameo debut for Bournemouth and he looks the type to be getting people off their seats at Dean Court.

He is also capable of hitting the back of the net, he bagged 17 goals for Saint Étienne last year and finished top scorer for the club. An interesting one, and probably worth a gamble for most Fantasy Football teams.


Gerard Delefeou

Many people have considered the transfer fee for Gerard Delefeou an absolute steal at just over £4 million and when you consider his raw potential it is a bargain.

He showed his capability during his initial loan spell at Goodison Park a couple of years ago. Since then he has had an unsuccessful loan spell at Sevilla, so unsuccessful he was selected in the La Liga worst team of the year.

You don’t come through the Barcelona system without possessing some real quality though and he’s fully capable or returning to form now he’s back working with Roberto Martinez. Definitely one to watch, expect his confidence to grow as the season progresses.
