We asked our Sky Sports pundits to pick their Premier League signing of the season...
Graeme Souness, Thierry Henry, Jamie Carragher, Niall Quinn, Gary Neville and Alan Smith came up with a list of three contenders.
One from Manchester United, one from Chelsea and another from Liverpool. Do you agree with their selections? Have your say below…
Pundits' signing of the season
|Graeme Souness||Zlatan Ibrahimovic|
|Thierry Henry||Sadio Mane|
|Jamie Carragher||Zlatan Ibrahimovic|
|Niall Quinn||David Luiz|
|Gary Neville||Zlatan Ibrahimovic|
|Alan Smith||Sadio Mane|
Graeme Souness - Zlatan Ibrahimovic
I said at the start of the season Zlatan has to play well and be the main man for United, and that's how it has turned out.
I'd make him my player of the season simply because he is 35 years old and has single-handedly kept them in lots of competitions. I love his attitude because he gives a calming effect to the lesser lights - 'Do not worry, Zlatan's here'.
And he has dragged United into a healthy position, they have won one trophy already and I would imagine in the dressing room he is fabulous.
I love someone who can back up what he says and he can certainly do that.
Thierry Henry - Sadio Mane
I have to give Ibrahimovic a lot of credit, but Sadio Mane has been the signing of the season.
Jamie Carragher - Zlatan Ibrahimovic
There were always questions surrounding Ibrahimovic because he never quite did it against English teams in Europe.
But he's now done it at 35, keeping United in contention for the top four, with a trophy already in the bag, and he may win another in the Europa League.
Niall Quinn - David Luiz
For guts and bravery, I like what David Luiz has done. I love the way he became a rock again at Chelsea having been scorned by managers.
He wanted to come back and prove his doubters wrong. I remember the Chelsea he joined were flat and despondent. They had a bad year last year and he came back into the fold. I really admire what he's done.
In my eyes, his transformation and his performances for Chelsea this season merit mention.
Gary Neville - Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Ultimately he's been the best signing. He's given the players and the club a lot more confidence.
Alan Smith - Sadio Mane
When he came to Liverpool I was wondering how well he would do. But the goals he's scored and the impact he's had has been fantastic.
When he was absent, he showed just how big an influence he has on the Liverpool team.
