Rapid Fire Transfers – July 1st Deals Part 2

The July 1st deals continue to roll in as the official opening of the transfer window draws closer.

Joel Campbell – Arsenal > Free Agent The Costa Rican was purchased by Arsenal for 1M Euros in 2011 but hasn’t had full blown success with the capital club. Between injuries and a plethora of loans, Campbell made just 40 appearances in that 7-season stretch with the club. He most recently went on loan to Real Betis where he made 9 total appearances and played just 232 minutes.

Ovie Ejaria – Liverpool U23 > Rangers – Loan – The U-20 World Cup Winner with England spent the second half of last season with a woeful Sunderland side. He made 11 appearances. He spent the first half with Liverpool’s U-23 side and also made 11 appearances in Premier League 2.

Thomas Delaney – Werder Bremen > Dortmund – 20M Euros – Delaney, who joined Bremen in January of 2017 for just 2 million, made 36 appearances for the Bundesliga club in the 17/18 season. Dortmund was wise to snap up this deal before Delaney has a potentially eye-opening World Cup with Denmark.

Karl Toko Ekambi – Angers > Villarreal – 18M Euros – Africa Cup of Nations winner Ekambi joins the Spanish side after 17 goals and 6 assists in 39 appearances for Angers. The 25-year-old Cameroon international joined Angers in 2016 for 1M.

Jonny Evans – West Brom > Leicester – 4M Euros – Evans was purchased cheap due to a cheap relegation release clause and Leicester have an early run to the steal of the summer so far.

Emre Can – Liverpool > Free – A transfer many knew was coming ahead of time, Can leaves Liverpool to sign with any club on a free transfer. He has been heavily rumored to be going to Juventus.

Jon Flanagan – Liverpool > Free – Flanagan gets let go on a free after spending his entire career in the Liverpool system. He most recently went out on loan to Bolton for the second half of the season, where he made 9 appearances in the Championship last season.

Terence Kongolo – Monaco > Huddersfield – 20M Euros – Huddersfield makes Kongolo’s move permanent after a successful second-half spell with the Terriers’s safety attempts.
