Did their business early, landing a top-class keeper in Alisson, along with Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.


New boss Unai Emery wasted no time addressing the team's deficiencies, strengthening in goal and defence.


With the caveat that last summer's spending spree quickly turned sour, they look to be one of the big winners with a flurry of late coups.

West Ham

Manuel Pellegrini has overhauled the squad he inherited from David Moyes, making nine new signings, including Jack Wilshere from Arsenal.


Have flexed their financial muscle ahead of their return to the Premier League, bringing in the likes of Joao Moutinho and Adama Traore, while holding on to Ruben Neves.


Manchester United

A chastening couple of months for United, who were unable to land the defender they wanted.


Became the first Premier League team not to make a single signing during the summer window and also failed to sell the players they wanted to.


After the high of finishing seventh last season and European qualification, optimism has been dampened by a challenging window where they have been priced out of many deals.


Financial constraints again left Newcastle fans distinctly underwhelmed by their business.


Landing Jorginho was a plus point but ended up £40million in deficit after seeing Thibaut Courtois join Real Madrid and bringing in Kepa Arrizabalaga.
