XtraTime Web Desk: The sensational summer transfer window in the Premier League is over as the season to get kicked off today with the clash between Manchester United and Leicester City. Here goes the detailed list of the summer releases and signings of the Premier League teams this season.
Arsenal’s biggest move of the summer was replacing Arsène Wenger with Unai Emery, but they have also strengthened their squad with five new signings. Bernd Leno will challenge Petr Cech in goal, while centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner will add experience at the back. Uruguay’s Lucas Torreira and 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi are intriguing additions in midfield. JacoSteinberg
In: Lucas Torreira Sampdoria, £26.5m; Bernd Leno Leverkusen, £19.2m; Sokratis Papastathopoulos Dortmund, £17.7m; Matteo Guendouzi Lorient, £8m; Stephan Lichtsteiner Juventus, free.
Out: Lucas Pérez West Ham, £4m; Jeff Reiné-Adelaïde Angers, £2.7m; Chuba Akpom PAOK, £900,000; João Virginia Everton, undisclosed; Jack Wilshere West Ham, free; Santi Cazorla Villarreal, free; Hugo Keto Brighton, free; Calum Chambers Fulham, loan; Takuma Asano Hannover, loan.
It was not straightforward but Eddie Howe eventually secured his No 1 target with Jefferson Lerma, the Colombia midfielder, joining for a club-record £25m fee. The Cherries did not go wild this summer but in Levante’s Diego Rico they have provided long-serving left-back Charlie Daniels with serious competition, while Howe can unlock the raw potential of David Brooks, the 20-year-old Wales international midfielder who joins from Sheffield United. Ben Fisher
In: Jefferson Lerma Levante, £25m; David Brooks Sheffield United, £11.5m; Diego Rico Leganés, £10.7m.
Out: Benik Afobe Wolves, £10m; Lewis Grabban Nottingham Forest, £6m; Max Gradel Toulouse, £1.8m; Adam Federici Stoke City, undisclosed; Brad Smith Seattle Sounders, loan; Emerson Hyndman Hibernian, loan; Connor Mahoney Birmingham, loan.
Chris Hughton focused on adding competition in defence, signing Leon Balogun and Bernardo after watching the pair impress in the Bundesliga, and Brighton also broke their transfer record to sign Alireza Jahanbakhsh from AZ Alkmaar. The Iranian winger scored 21 goals in the Eredivisie last season. It was a productive summer for the Seagulls, with full-back Martin Montoya arriving on deadline day.
In: Alireza Jahanbakhsh AZ Alkmaar, £17m; Yves Bissouma Lille, £15m; Bernardo RB Leipzig £9m; Florin Andone Deportivo, £5.3m; Percy Tau Mamelodi Sundowns £3m; Martin Montoya Valencia und; David Button Fulham und; Dan Burn Wigan, und (loaned back); Billy Arce CSD Independiente, und (loaned to Extremadura).
Out: Connor Goldson Rangers, £3m; Jamie Murphy Rangers, £1m; Sam Baldock Reading, £1m; Jiri Skalak Millwall, und; Uwe Hünemeier Paderborn und; Tim Krul Norwich, free; Niki Mäenpää Bristol City, free.
A fruitful final week eased Sean Dyche’s frustrations after a difficult summer. The Burnley manager strengthened in central defence with Ben Gibson, added to his collection of England goalkeepers by ending Joe Hart’s 12-year association with Manchester City and, while unable to re-sign Jay Rodriguez, secured the Championship’s leading goalscorer from last season in Matej Vydra. Andy Hunter
In: Ben Gibson Middlesbrough, £15m; Matej Vydra Derby County, £11m; Joe Hart Manchester City, £3.5m.
Out: Tom Anderson Doncaster, undisclosed; Scott Arfield Rangers, free; Chris Long Fleetwood, free; Dean Marney Fleetwood, free; Josh Ginnelly Walsall, free.
Neil Warnock’s early signings, a quartet who have excelled in the Championship, fit his mould of working with hungry players. They failed to lure Marko Grujic back from Liverpool and the deadline day arrivals of midfielders Victor Camarasa and Bournemouth’s Harry Arter do not mask how light the newcomers are in terms of Premier League experience and firepower.
In: Josh Murphy Norwich £11m; Bobby Reid Bristol City £10m; Greg Cunningham Preston £4m, Alex Smithies QPR £3.5m; Victor Camarasa Betis loan; Harry Arter Bournemouth loan.
Out: Ben Wilson Bradford loan; Omar Bogle Birmingham loan; Lee Camp Birmingham loan.
Chelsea’s summer was fraught and political, with recruitment delayed until Antonio Conte had left and Maurizio Sarri arrived. Jorginho will implement the new head coach’s philosophy on the pitch. Thibaut Courtois’ fractious departure was costly, with a world record fee required to secure Kepa, available for £17.9m in January. Keeping Eden Hazard was key, but a penny for the thoughts of Ruben Loftus-Cheek over the loan signing of Mateo Kovacic. Dominic Fifield
In: Kepa Arrizabalaga Athletic Bilbao, £71.6m; Rob Green free; Jorginho Napoli, £50.4m; Mateo Kovacic Real Madrid, loan.
Out: Thibaut Courtois Real Madrid, £35m; Jérémie Boga Sassuolo, £3.5m; Jonathan Panzo Monaco, und; Kenedy Newcastle, loan; Lewis Baker Leeds, loan; Eduardo Vitesse, loan; Trevoh Chalobah Ipswich, loan; Mason Mount Derby, loan; Jay Dasilva Bristol City, loan; Mario Pasalic Atalanta, loan; Todd Kane Hull City loan.
Money was tight at Selhurst Park, with a restrictive wage bill that restricted expenditure and hefty payments due to Liverpool for Christian Benteke and Mamadou Sakho. Losing Yohan Cabaye was a blow, and replacing Ruben Loftus-Cheek was awkward. So to bring in four players for an outlay of £9.5m, plus wages, was impressive. Max Meyer has a point to prove, and Vicente Guaita was one of the best goalkeepers in Spain last season.
In: Cheikhou Kouyaté West Ham, £9.5m; Vicente Guaita Getafe, free; Max Meyer Schalke, free; Jordan Ayew Swansea, loan
Out: Yohan Cabaye Al Nasr, free; Damien Delaney Cork City, free; Jaroslaw Jach Rizespor, loan
Having spent most of the summer trying to reduce the wage bill and squad size, Everton went into overdrive on deadline day with three eye-catching signings. Brazil international Bernard arrived on a free transfer while a club delegation flew to Barcelona to complete deals for defender Yerry Mina and André Gomes, the latter on loan.
In: Richarlison Watford, £40m; Yerry Mina Barcelona £27m; Lucas Digne Barcelona, £18m; João Virginia Arsenal, undisclosed; Bernard Shakhtar Donetsk, free; André Gomes Barcelona, loan.
Out: Davy Klaasen Werder Bremen, £12m; Ramiro Funes Mori Villarreal, £4.4m; Ashley Williams Stoke, loan; Kevin Mirallas Fiorentina, loan; Henry Onyekuru Galatasaray, loan; Shani Tarashaj Grasshopper, loan; Wayne Rooney DC United, free
Fulham’s business, on paper at least, looks hugely impressive. A squad bolstered by loanees last season appears to have been upgraded. Securing Jean Michaël Seri from Nice was a coup, Alfie Mawson has aspirations to break into the England squad, while André Schürrle is a World Cup winner. Aleksandar Mitrovic returns and five players, including full-back Joe Bryan, forward Luciano Vietto and Marseille midfielder André Frank Zambo Anguissa were signed on a frantic deadline day.
In: Jean Michaël Seri Nice, £25m; Maxime le Marchand Nice, £3m; André Frank Zambo Anguissa Marseille, £30m; Aleksandar Mitrovic Newcastle, £22m; Alfie Mawson Swansea, £20m; Joe Bryan Fulham, £6m; Fabri Besiktas, £5m; Timothy Fosu-Mensah Manchester United, loan; Luciano Vietto Atlético Madrid, loan; André Schürrle Dortmund, loan; Calum Chambers Arsenal, loan; Sergio Rico Sevilla, loan.
Out: Ryan Fredericks West Ham, free; David Button Brighton, undisclosed; Tayo Edun Ipswich, loan.
Three players who did well last season – Terence Kongolo, Florent Hadergjonaj and goalkeeper Jonas Lössl – made loan transfers permanent. German World Cup winner Erik Durm has arrived to strengthen left-back. The question is whether Huddersfield have added enough creativity; much depends on how the young forwards Adama Diakhaby, Ramadan Sobhi and Isaac Mbenza perform.
In: Terence Kongolo Monaco, £17.5m; Adama Diakhaby Monaco £8m; Ramadan Sobhi Stoke £5.7m; Jonas Lössl Mainz, £2.3m; Erik Durm Dortmund, und; Juninho Bacuna Groningen, und; Florent Hadergjonaj Ingolstadt, und; Ben Hamer Leicester, free; Isaac Mbenza Montpellier, free.
Out: Tom Ince Stoke, £10m; Scott Malone Derby, £2.7m; Michael Hefele Nottingham Forest, und; Sean Scannell Bradford, und; Rob Green Chelsea, free.
Interest from Manchester United in Harry Maguire was headed off and means that, with the Turkish centre-back Caglar Soyuncu arriving on deadline day, the Foxes’ defence looks healthy. Jonny Evans, signed earlier in the summer, adds experienced competition. Riyad Mahrez departed but Claude Puel has added creativity in James Maddison and Monaco winger Rachid Ghezzal.
In: James Maddison Norwich, £24m; Caglar Soyuncu Freiburg, £19m; Ricardo Pereira Porto, £17.5m; Filip Benkovic Dinamo Zagreb £13m; Danny Ward Liverpool £12.5m; Rachid Ghezzal Monaco £12m
Out: Riyad Mahrez Manchester City £60m; Ahmed Musa Al-Nasr £14.7m; Connor Wood Braford, und; Josh Gordon Walsall, und; Ben Hamer Huddersfield free; Harvey Barnes West Brom, loan
A proposed £53m deal for Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir collapsed before the World Cup and was never revived, but otherwise Liverpool enjoyed a hugely productive window. Jürgen Klopp’s midfield was strengthened with Naby Keïta and Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri will improve his attacking options and crucially, Klopp finally addressed his goalkeeping problems with the £65m signing of Alisson.
In: Alisson Roma, £65m; Naby Keïta RB Leipzig, £52.8m; Fabinho Monaco, £40m; Xherdan Shaqiri Stoke City, £13m.
Out: Danny Ward Leicester, £12.5m; Yan Dhanda Swansea, undisclosed; Emre Can Juventus, free; Jon Flanagan Rangers, free; Harry Wilson Derby, loan; Ben Woodburn Sheffield United, loan; Danny Ings Southampton, loan; Ryan Kent Rangers, loan; Ovie Ejaria Rangers, loan; Taiwo Awoniyi Gent, loan; Adam Bogdan Hibernian, loan.
If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Even without the arrival of Riyad Mahrez, Pep Guardiola’s formidable squad was almost certainly strong enough to defend their title. City will trust Mahrez’s ability to thread those visionary passes in tight situations, and the winger could make the difference in Europe. Moreover, finally fit-again £50m full-back Benjamin Mendy will seem like a new signing.
In: Riyad Mahrez Leicester, £60m; Claudio Gomes PSG, free; Philippe Sandler PEC Zwolle, £2.6m; Daniel Arzani Melbourne City, undisclosed.
Out: Angus Gunn Southampton, £10m; Pablo Maffeo Stuttgart, £8.1m; Angeliño PSV, £5m; Joe Hart Burnley, £3.5m; Bersant Celina Swansea, £3m; Olarenwaju Kayode Shakhtar Donetsk, £2.6m.
Expect toys to be flung out of the pram and tears before bedtime. José Mourinho did not get Harry Maguire – or any of the centre halves he wanted in order to challenge City and Liverpool for the title. At least he made Fred a red and it will be intriguing to monitor the midfield relationship between the Brazilian and Paul Pogba. It needs to be better than that between Mourinho and Ed Woodward.
In: Fred Shakhtar Donetsk, £43.7m; Diogo Dalot Porto, £19m; Lee Grant Stoke, £1.5m.
Out: Daley Blind Ajax, £14.2m; Sam Johnstone West Brom, £6.5m; Joe Riley Bradford, undisclosed; Timothy Fosu-Mensah Fulham, loan; Cameron Borthwick-Jackson Scunthorpe, loan; Dean Henderson Sheff Utd, loan; Joel Pereira Vitória Setúbal, loan; Axel Tuanzebe Aston Villa, loan.
Expect cries of “where’s the money gone” from Rafa Benítez as Newcastle ended the window showing a healthy profit on player dealings. Swansea centre half Federico Fernandez’s £6m deadline day move was necessary, selling Aleksandar Mitrovic for £22m is amazing business and Newcastle do look stronger than this time last year. Maybe, just maybe, a takeover beckons.
In: Yoshinori Muto Mainz, £9.5m; Federico Fernández Swansea, £6m; Martin Dubravka Sparta Prague, £4.5m; Fabian Schär Deportivo, £3.6m; Ki Sung-yueng Swansea, free; Kenedy Chelsea, loan; Salómon Rondón West Brom, loan.
Out: Aleksander Mitrovic Fulham, £22m; Mikel Merino Real Sociedad, £10m; Chancel Mbemba Porto, £7.2m; Matz Sels Strasbourg, £4m; Adam Armstrong Blackburn, £1.8m; Dwight Gayle West Brom, loan.
Mark Hughes has pruned his squad yet they finish the window stronger than they started it – especially after a late loan move for Danny Ings. Mohamed Elyounoussi and Stuart Armstrong should inject some pizzazz into what was becoming a tired squad, and the club have also signed goalkeeper Angus Gunn and centre-back Jannik Vestergaard. Hughes has also kept hold of James Ward-Prowse, Matt Targett, Alex McCarthy and Ryan Bertrand.
In: Stuart Armstrong Celtic, £7m; Mohamed Elyounoussi Basel, £16m; Angus Gunn Manchester City, £10m, Jannik Vestergaard Mönchengladbach, £18m; Danny Ings Liverpool, loan.
Out: Dusan Tadic Ajax, £15m; Sofiane Boufal Celta Vigo, loan; Jordy Clasie Feyenoord, loan; Guido Carrillo Leganés, loan.
Southampton finally sign Danny Ings after Crystal Palace prefer Jordan Ayew
Daniel Levy left it late again, but there was no last-gasp splurge from Tottenham this time. They became the first Premier League side not to sign a player in the summer window since its introduction in 2003, with Aston Villa unmoved by interest in Jack Grealish, and also failed to sell Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembéle and Danny Rose.
Out: Keenan Bennetts Borussia Mönchengladbach, £2m; Anton Walkes Portsmouth, undisclosed; Reo Griffiths Lyon, undisclosed
Watford’s window started well, with a flurry of useful squad-strengthening activity and the permanent arrival of Gerard Deulofeu, but then turned very quiet, save for a late £1m move for Domingos Quina. The failure to sign a high-profile striker despite their evident need for one is puzzling, and overall the impression is of a club that has stood still.
In: Gerard Deulofeu Barcelona, £11.5m; Ben Foster West Brom, £4m; Adam Masina Bologna, £3.5m; Marc Navarro Espanyol, £3m; Domingos Quina West Ham, £1m; Ken Sema Ostersund, £1m; Ben Wilmot Stevenage, und.
Out: Richarlison Watford, £40m; Nordin Amrabat Al-Nassr £4m; Mauro Zarate Velez Sarsfield, £2m; Costel Pantilimon Nottingham Forest, £2m; Cucho Huesca, loan; Jerome Sinclair Sunderland, loan; Dodi Lukebakio Fortuna Dusseldorf, loan.
West Ham United
West Ham completed most of their business early, with Manuel Pellegrini in a hurry to make extensive improvements to his new side. They broke their transfer record to sign Felipe Anderson from Lazio, signed Ryan Fredericks and Jack Wilshere on frees, and finished a busy window by signing Lucas Pérez from Arsenal and Carlos Sánchez from Fiorentina.
In: Felipe Anderson Lazio, £33.5m; Issa Diop Toulouse, £22.5m; Andriy Yarmolenko Dortmund, £17.5m; Lukasz Fabianski Swansea, £7m; Lucas Pérez Arsenal, £4m; Fabian Balbuena Corinthians, £3.5m; Carlos Sánchez Fiorentina, undisclosed; Xande Silva Vitória Guimarães, undisclosed; Ryan Fredericks Fulham, free; Jack Wilshere Arsenal, free.
Out: Cheikhou Kouyaté Crystal Palace, £9.5m; Reece Burke Hull, £1.5m; Domingos Quina Watford, £1m; Sead Haksabanovic Malaga, loan; Jordan Hugill Middlesbrough, loan.
João Moutinho, Leander Dendoncker and Adama Traoré are the stand-out names from a frantic summer that also saw key players from their promotion season nailed down to permanent deals. Wolves have moved decisively although they arguably still lack a prolific forward – Raúl Jiménez will look to change that – and it was a big call to let set-piece specialist Barry Douglas join Leeds for what looks a cut-price fee.
In: Adama Traoré Middlesbrough, £18m; Diogo Jota Atlético, £12.6m; Willy Boly Porto, £10m; Benik Afobe Bournemouth, £10m (loaned to Stoke); Léo Bonatini Al-Hilal, £5m; João Moutinho Monaco, £5m; Rúben Vinagre Monaco, £2m; Rui Patrício Sporting, free; Jonny Celta Vigo, loan; Leander Dendoncker Anderlecht, loan
Out: Barry Douglas Leeds, £5m; Ben Marshall Norwich, £2m; Prince Oniangué Caen, und; Rafa Mir Las Palmas, loan
Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson have left Liverpool on loan, not on free transfers, that Danny Ward has joined Leicester City and that Ashley Williams has moved from Everton to Stoke City on loan.
