Every Premier League club’s summer transfer window ranked from best to worst
| Last updated
It has been yet another busy transfer window for clubs in the Premier League.
As the 23/24 season hots up, teams have been working around the clock to add more quality to their squads.
The British transfer record has been broken on two occasions, by Declan Rice’s move to Arsenal and then by Moises Caicedo’s £115 million transfer to Chelsea.
With the transfer window now shut, we have decided to rank each club’s window from best to worst.
The Gunners have had a brilliant window, bringing in the likes of Rice, Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber and David Raya meant Mikel Arteta has a much better squad to choose from with his side fighting on four fronts.
2. Manchester City
Having lost the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan, Pep Guardiola has gone out and brought in Mateo Kovacic and Jeremy Doku.
City have also added to their defensive ranks with the signing of Josko Gvardiol.
3. Newcastle United
Sandro Tonali could prove to be a brilliant signing for the Magpies after a promising start to life in England.
In addition, Harvey Barnes is a brilliant piece of business.
5. Brighton and Hove Albion
The Seagulls always get their transfers right. They have brought in youth and experience with players like James Milner providing the know-how, whilst Carlos Baleba could be another star in the making.
6. Manchester United
United have for sure added quality to their squad with the likes of Mason Mount and Andre Onana. They have also addressed their midfield issue with the signing of Sofyan Amrabat. All eyes will be on whether Rasmus Hojlund can score goals.
7. Aston Villa
Quite a stunning window for Unai Emery bringing in the likes of Pau Torres, Nicolo Zaniolo and Moussa Diaby. Villa could surprise a few this season.
8. Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs will be disappointed to lose Harry Kane but they potentially have a bargain with the signing of James Maddison. Brennan Johnson is also a smart move.
9. Nottingham Forest
Similar to Chelsea, Forest have spent big yet again. Floods of new players on deadline day including Divock Origi and Callum Hudson Odoi
Reds fans will feel disappointed after what was billed as a big summer rebuild ended with just four new players. But the signing of Dominik Szoboszlai has got fans extremely excited. Their defence will be the big issue again.
Losing Alexander Mitrovic was huge, but if Marco Silva can get Raul Jimenez firing then all will be forgotten. Keeping Joao Palhinha is a huge plus for the Cottagers.
The Cherries have signed some exciting young talents. Especially Alex Scott, who could be set for a big season in the Premier League.
Similar to Bournemouth, Burnley have also invested in youth. James Trafford and Zeki Amdouni the ones to watch.
14. West Ham United
The Hammers have spent the Rice money wisely. Bringing in James Ward Prowse and Edson Alvarez plus keeping Lucas Paqueta will make life happier for David Moyes.
It has been a largely quiet window for Brentford but they kept the core of their important players, which will be huge for their bid to build on last season.
16. Crystal Palace
Keeping the likes of Marc Guehi, Ebere Eze, Chieck Doucoure and Michael Olise will be vital for Palace. In terms of arrivals, nothing screams spectacular.
It was always going to be tough for the newly promoted side. But signing Ross Barkley and Albert Sambi Lokonga could be good business.
18. Sheffield United
Luke Thomas and James McAtee are good signings, but Sheffield will need luck if they are to survive the drop.
19. Wolverhampton Wanderers
In truth, it has been a poor summer for Wolves. Losing the likes of Matheus Nunes, Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves plus Julen Lopetegui. No wonder many fans feel they could be relegated.
Beto could be a decent signing but overall it has been an awful window for the Toffees, who are yet to win a point in the Premier League.
