Summer Signing Review: Jesus Navas

Another player review for you guys today, but this time it is a "summer signing" in the form of Spanish winger Jesus Navas, who joined Manchester City earlier this summer for around £20million pounds. 

Manchester City lacked pace and attacking threat down the wings last season, and they have tried to counter this by signing one of the paciest and most attacking wingers in the world - Jesus Navas. 

Signal of intent: City have made a bold statement to the rest of the EPL by signing Jesus Navas.
Back with a bang: Manchester City have unvieled the signings of Negredo, Jovetic and Navas into their new squad.

He impressed the whole of Europe with his consistent performances at Sevilla over the past few years, and as a result he is subject to a big money move to the Premier League - a league he has admitted he wanted to join years ago. 

He has quick dribbling, good decision making and will be a key asset going forward for City this season, no wonder they paid £20million pounds for his services.
It just proves how much they want to regain their EPL title back from local rivals United, who have slacked in the transfer market this term which is surprisingly unlike them.  

His pace and ability to get past defenders will scare every team in the EPL, that's for sure. 

Previously before he recently joined City during the summer, he played the majority of his footballing career with Liga BBVA side Sevilla, making almost 400 official appearances for the club and winning six major titles including two UEFA Cups and two Copa Del Rey trophies during his 13-year tenure at the Spanish club. 

Vital: Navas was a vital part of the Sevilla set-up for many seasons, making almost 400 appearances.

Winner: Navas won the Euro 2012 trophy with the Spain national team last year.

He has also represented his national side (Spain) since 2004 up until now, having won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 with his team. 

Influential: Navas helped Spain win the World Cup, Euros and reach the final of this year's Confederations Cup.
