A £60 million price tag, but just one league goal. The 26-year-old Tottenham Hotspur forward has been dubbed the Premier League’s worst signing of the season.

On Thursday, Goal.com ranked the 21 most disappointing signings in the Premier League for the 2022-2023 season.

“The Premier League has had an incredible year. Transfer market spending across the league reached unprecedented levels. In the summer alone, £2.1 billion was spent, and in January, £2.8 billion was spent, with Chelsea in particular spending heavily.” “With that kind of money, there were inevitably some big mistakes,” they added.

At the top of the list, it’s not surprising. He joined Tottenham last summer for a record fee of up to £60 million with options, but he has just three goals and three assists in Ligue 1. He has more yellow cards (3) than goals.

He’s also ruined the mood of the team. After Tottenham were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the round of 16 in March, he took a swipe at former manager Antonio Conte, saying, “I want to play, he said I could play if I was good, but I was on the bench again,” a bombshell statement. It was a bizarre statement, considering his string of injuries and underperformance.

Goal.com writes: “There was a time when everyone was raving about Tottenham’s summer transfer window ahead of the 2022-2023 season. It seems like a long time ago now. With Antonio Conte at the helm, Tottenham were expected to be title contenders after adding Yves Bissouma, Cristian Romero and £60million signing Leroy Sane to their squad.”

“The reality was very different. He struggled in another chaotic season. He scored just one goal in the league and failed to break into the first team at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium,” putting him at the top of their list of most disappointing signings.

Not to be outdone, Bissouma also made the list at number nine. Bissouma arrived in a Tottenham shirt last summer in a £25 million deal, but he failed to live up to expectations and fractured his ankle. The versatility he showed at Brighton was nowhere to be seen.

Goal.com said: “Bissouma was supposed to be helping Tottenham compete for the title, but he was plagued by ankle fractures, and even before that he was a shadow of his Brighton self. Spurs will be pleased to know that they only spent £25 million to get him now.” 안전놀이터

Behind him on the list are Marc Couturella (Chelsea), Calvin Phillips (Manchester City), Mikhail Mkhitaryan (Chelsea) and Jesse Lingard (Nottingham).

Anthony Martial (Manchester United), Artur Melo (Liverpool), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling (all Chelsea), Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa), Gonzalo Guedes and Matheus Cunha (Wolverhampton), Anthony Gordon (Newcastle), Zanlukasz Skramaczka and Lucas Paqueta (West Ham), Georginio Luther and Brendan Aaronson (Leeds), Darwin Nunes (Liverpool) and Paul Onuoachu (Southampton).

Chelsea had the most players on the list with five out of a total of 21. Liverpool, Tottenham, Wolverhampton, Leeds, and West Ham followed with two.
