Top 10 Loan Transfers of Summer 2022

Hello and welcome! So far we’ve reviewed the best free transfers of the summer mercato, the best transfers over 50mil and the best transfers under 50mil. Today’s it’s time to review the best loan transfers!

Romelu Lukaku

Loan fee: €8milNationality: Belgium
Age: 29Position: ST
From: ChelseaTo: Inter

Undoubtedly the biggest name on the list, it is fashionable to underrate Lukaku these days, but the Belgian is still one of the best strikers of this generation. He scored 87 goals at Everton, 65 at Inter, 42 at Man United, 15 at Chelsea and we still didn’t count those at WBA or at Anderlech. A lethal forward, Lukaku still has a lot of football left in him and being “home” at Inter will surely bring the best out of him.

Renan Lodi

Loan fee: €5milNationality: Brazil
Age: 24Position: LB
From: Atletico MadridTo: Nottm Forest

Only 24, it seems like Renan Lodi has been a key player for Atleti for a long time now. Simeone’s 3 CB system might not have been the best fit for the Brazilian, but he is sure to have a good career in front of him.

Sergino Dest

Price: €0milNationality: USA
Age: 21Position: RB
From: FC BarcelonaTo: AC Milan

With the Sergino Dest, we always had the feeling that he is just not at the right club. The talented Right Back has always been considered as one of the best North American players, however it seems his transfer to the Camp Nou just didn’t work out. Still only 21, he has a a point to prove and we suspect the San Siro is the perfect place for that.

Tanguy Ndombele

Price: €500kNationality: France
Age: 25Position: CM
From: TottenhamTo: Lyon

This one remains an enigma… It is clear that Ndombele is a talented Central Midfielder, he has shown this time and time again. There were some concerns regarding his attitude, let’s see whether these can be fixed in France.

Giacomo Raspadori

Loan fee: €5milNationality: Italy
Age: 22Position: ST
From: SassuoloTo: SSC Napoli

Even though Raspadori didn’t have the desired impact at Napoli, he is definitely want to watch. Only 22 years old, the forward was wanted by the biggest Italian club, but ultimately decided to join Napoli. Spalletti’s squad is quite in form at the moment, but Raspadori will definitely get his chance this season.

Hugo Ekitike

Loan fee: €0milNationality: France
Age: 20Position: ST
From: Stade ReimsTo: PSG

Together with Mathys Tel and Amine Gouiri, Ekitike is another French young forward who moved clubs. With a new sporting director, PSG are way more cautious in the transfer market, so we can expect Ekitike to play a key role at the Parc des Princess, even if that role is not being part of the starting 11.


Loan fee: €0milNationality: Spain
Age: 25Position: LB
From: RB LeipzigTo: TSG Hoffenheim

Just a few months ago, it seemed Angelino is one of RB Leipzig’s key players, but it seems good things come to an end. Only 25 years old, the Spanish fullback is taking a step backwards in his career, as he joins fellow Bundesliga side, Hoffenheim. Interesting to see where life takes him.

Denis Zakaria

Loan fee: €3milNationality: Switzerland
Age: 25Position: CDM
From: JuventusTo: Chelsea FC

Having joined Juventus only 6 months ago, Zakaria is already on the move. Tuchel and co had a huge summer mercato, but it seemed that they missed out on their bigger midfield targets. Well Tuchel is gone now and it is unknown whether Zakaria is someone who the new manager appreciates or not.

Lucas Ocampos

Loan fee: €4milNationality: Argentina
Age: 28Position: LW
From: FC SevillaTo: Ajax

Ocampos’ transfer to Ajax seemed to have hit a road block when the Argentine winger was sent back to Spain after the Ajax board not agreeing on the transfer, but he ultimately joined the Dutch side. One of Argentina’s top wingers, Ocampos will most definitely find a talented team in Amsterdam, but one that lost quite a lot of key players in the summer.

Leandro Paredes

Loan fee: €0milNationality: Argentina
Age: 28Position: CDM
From: PSGTo: Juventus

For some time it seemed that Paredes joining Juventus depens on Rabbiot leaving the club, but the Argentine did join Juventus by the end of the transfer market. With Juve having several midfield options, but having an injury crisis, we are sure Paredes will get his chance at Juventus Stadium.

With this, we conclude the series in which we review the transfers of the 2022 summer mercato. Hope you’ve enjoyed our analysis!
