Two Arsenal players have been named in The Telegraph‘s top 20 Premier League bargains of the season, and with a number of superb stars making their Premier League debut’s (or switching allegiances) it’s a tough list to break into.
Here is the full list:
20) Andrew Robertson – Hull – £2.85m
A relative unknown before he moved to the Premier League, the Scottish international has come on leaps and bounds since signing for Hull.

He is solid defensively, but really excels going forward. Robertson is arguably one of the league’s top crossers of the ball, and at 21-years-old he is only going to improve.
If Hull end up going down this season, then a number of Premier League clubs should be looking to bring the full-back straight back to the English top flight.
19) Diafra Sakho – West Ham – £3.5m
It looked like a risk bringing such an unproven player to West Ham to lead the line, but he hit the ground running and really came out firing.
His impressive goal tally this season has more than justified his price tag, and he will be keen to start the new season with the same bang.
18) Daley Blind – Manchester United – £13.8m
Louis van Gaal brought a whole host of new faces to Old Trafford this past summer, but few of them can really be called a huge success. Daley Blind came with a relatively small price tag compared to some of the other players that arrived, but has arguably proved the best purchase.
17) Fraser Forster – Southampton – £10m
The former Celtic shot-stopper has been a rock at the back for the Saints, and was a massive part of the defensive stability that served Ronald Koeman’s side so well at the start of the campaign. Despite being injured since March (via The Guardian), he is still tied at the top of the table for the Golden Glove award this season, according to Sky Sports.
