The Premier League’s big-money signings who need to start performing

Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Michael Keane, Nathan Aké and Andre Gray cost a fortune but haven’t delivered yet. It’s time they stepped up

Alexis Sánchez has kept the Mill fed and watered for an entire summer, so when no bigger an authority than Dani Alves says “it’s possible” that the Arsenal forward might join Paris Saint-Germain, we thrill in the subsequent column inches while crossing our fingers that it doesn’t actually happen for a good while yet.
