The summer of 2017 will likely be remembered as the summer that changed soccer transfers forever.

The Premier League is back, but just barely. While in some ways it seems like so much has already happened, there are only two games down and 36 to go for every team. A poor performance from a new signing or a surprise win from a relegation candidate shouldn’t lead to speculation given such a…
