The Premier League flop XI so far this season including transfer issues as Marc Cucurella and Kalvin Phillips struggle
KALVIN PHILLIPS and Marc Cucurella are among the biggest Premier League transfer flops of the summer.
The pair joined the Big Six clubs for huge sums, but both have failed to repeat the form they showed last season.
And they aren’t the only stars to have struggled as Richarlison also failed to match the form he showed at Everton for Tottenham at £60m.
Like Cucurella, Raheem Sterling has struggled adjusting to life at Chelsea, although the Blues have generally underperformed and are ninth in the Prem.
Billy Gilmour left Stamford Bridge for Brighton but has failed to make his mark on the high-flying Seagulls.
But flops weren’t just limited to domestic transfers, and in some cases, big bucks were spent for little reward.
Manchester United’s purchase of Antony is the best example of this, as the Brazilian has only managed three goals and zero assists despite coming for £85m.
United pulled out all the stops to land the winger, including spending over the odds.
West Ham defender Thilo Kehrer has also not been convincing in East London – conceding a penalty on his debut and scoring an own goal against rivals Spurs.
Duje Caleta-Car has faced similar problems since signing for Southampton, failing to lead them away from the relegation zone.

Bournemouth keeper Neto is also in danger of finishing in the last three – he came with a huge reputation after playing for Barcelona but failed to set the league on fire.
Big things were also expected of Caleta-Car’s team-mate Joe Aribo after helping Rangers to the Europa League final last season.
He hasn’t shown his true qualities yet and the Saints need him to start production if they want to get to safety.
