7. Joao Moutinho (Monaco – Wolves)
For a few seasons running, the Portuguese maestro was perennially linked with Tottenham Hostpurs. That never happened, but he finally found himself in England as part of Wolves’ contingent of players from the Iberian nation. And what a signing he was.
Costing a mere £5 million, Moutinho was the pendulum at the heart of the Black Country team’s midfield alongside Ruben Neves. He brought valuable experience and maturity to a young side. That fee is ridiculous in this day and age. He appeared in every league game for Wolves and was voted Player of the Season by their fans.
