Lukaku and Pogba make the worst Premier League signings of all time

Lukaku and Pogba make the worst Premier League signings of all time ...

Romelu Lukaku is expected to leave Chelsea for the second time just one year after his 97.5 million move to Stamford Bridge.

In his one season back in England, the Belgian looked a shell of his former self and could barely get a kick of a football, nevermind to score a goal.

Many say Lukakus was the worst Premier League signing in recent memory, and had hoped to construct an XI of the worst transfers of the Premier League.

GK Kepa Arrizabalaga Chelsea

Kepa Arrizabalaga, the first, but by no means the last, Chelsea player in this game, has been a bit of a nightmare signing from start to finish.

A world-record fee was paid for a goalkeeper for Kepa, but within two seasons he had lost his place as the Chelsea team''s number one player.

Chelsea has made a string of high-profile mistakes, but perhaps his greatest sins have come in a pair of Carabao Cup finals where he made headlines for the wrong reasons in penalty shootouts on two occasions.

RB Winston Bogarde Chelsea

Bogarde, one of the only free transfers in this team, averted a massive money wasting while costing 0.

Bogarde was signed on a 40,000-a-week deal back then, which he was relatively successful in drafting the Blues, but he remained silent during the game, refusing to leave or go on loan unless his entire salary was covered.

After bleeding Chelsea dry, Bogarde resigned, likely living quite comfortably through his Stamford Bridge earnings.

CB Shkodran Mustafi Arsenal

Shkodran Mustafi, one of two Arsenal world cup winners, appeared to be more like a competition winner during his time here.

Mustafi embarked on a masterclass on how not to defend during his time at the Emirates Stadium.

At the time, $35 million was a large amount, but Mustafi never sembled to be worth even a fraction of that cost.

CB Ben Gibson Burnley

Burnley paid a club-record 15 million fee to sign Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough, but the centre-back appeared to disappear off the battlefield following his departure from the Clarets.

Gibson would play for Burnley in just one league game, and if he wins that sole appearance, he will score in that sole appearance, but for some reason, he will never be selected again by Sean Dyche in the Premier League.

LB Jamal Lewis Newcastle

It may seem a bit risky to include a 24-year-old in this team, but there have been little problems with leaving-backs in the Premier League.

Andre Santos or Paul Konchesky might influence this side during their time at Arsenal and Liverpool, but Lewis is, according to our opinion, a worse signing.

After their acquisition, a 15-year-old youngster who couldnt even make the Magpies 25-man squad last term is unlikely to ever return to the Newcastle side.

RM Nicolas Pepe Arsenal

Nicolas Pepe, the Arsenal club''s club record signing, hasn''t come close to justifying the 72 million heowement.

A teenage Bukayo Saka stricken the Ivorian while he wasn''t on the ground running at Arsenal.

Pepe had only started five Premier League games last term, and it expects the whole world to quit north London this summer.

CM Paul Pogba Manchester United

Paul Pogba may well be the best player in this team, but it''s hard to argue that he was a great player at Manchester United.

Pogba landed a world-record fee for his participation in the Red Devils in 2016 after departing on a free transfer in 2012, and here we are, six years later and Pogba has returned on a free.

Glimpses of brilliance simply aren''t enough to save Pogba from making this team.

CM Danny Drinkwater Chelsea

What was Chelsea''s intention when signing Danny Drinkwater for 35 million euros?

Yes, he won the Premier League with Leicester, but it was so obvious to many that he wasn''t good enough to play for a club of the Blues.

Drinkwater himself admitted earlier this month that his time at Chelsea was a shady event, and it is difficult to disagree with him.

LM Ali Dia Southampton

By the time we know it, we know the whole story.

Graeme Souness is accused of being George Weah selling his cousin to the former Saints boss.

Souness takes the bait, and it leads to Ali Dias'' one and only Premier League appearance.

Dia started off front that day, but he plays on the left of our team, and given that he wasn''t a professional footballer, we do not think we''re going to do it too well.

ST Kostas Mitroglou Fulham

Fulhams'' then club-record transfer, and Kostas Mitroglous time at Craven Cottage was totally ludicrous.

Fulham has been relegated to the Premier League but the Greek played just three times for the Whites without winning a single goal.

The performances were poorly and the pricetag was high, but the worst part about this whole film is that Fulham would have signed Antoine Griezmann instead.

ST Romelu Lukaku Chelsea

Lukaku, the man who led this XI, was much like Paul Pogba, but he returned to Chelsea after being left alone only to disappoint and once again jump ship.

The Belgian was hurried during his second-spell at Stamford Bridge, and hell be more than relieved to be reinstated to Inter.
