Ranking Every Premier League Club's Summer Transfer Window

The international transfer window shut on Monday night meaning most of the deals have been done in this extended summer window, but which teams did best?

Loading…

It was quite a busy deadline day, especially considering clubs were expected to spend less amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, with Thomas Partey and Edinson Cavani the headline signings.

Premier League teams can actually still sign players from the Football League, and vice versa, but most the deals have been done, until January that is.

With all the deals done we decided to put the Premier League into tiers and see who had the best, and worst transfer windows.

Chelsea spent big in the transfer window and captured Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to make them stronger upfront. Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Edouard Mendy arrived to sort out the defensive issues.

The Blues only missed out on Declan Rice and Frank Lampard also got rid of a fair amount of deadwood, an all round good window.

Everton and Aston Villa join the Blues in the top tier and their transfer dealings are clearly working, with both sides sitting at the top of the league at the moment.

The Toffee's midfield trio of James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure all came in this summer and have had an immediate impact on Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Equally Villa's captures of Ollie Watkins, Emiliano Martinez and Matty Cash hugely improve the team, and keeping Jack Grealish certainly helps.

There's no doubting that Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool all had excellent windows, strengthening their teams in some key areas.

Jose Mourinho probably wants another centre back but Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty are certainly a big help. Mikel Arteta's window became much better with the signing of Thomas Partey on deadline day.

Liverpool made excellent deals in signing Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara, with the the latter coming on an incredibly cheap deal.

Tier three has some excellent signings like Callum Wilson, Eberechi Eze and Ruben Dias, amongst others, but there's no doubt teams could have done more as well.

Wolves selling Matt Doherty on the cheap and replacing him with Nelson Semedo for a a lot more seems like one of the poorer pieces of business at that tier.

On the fourth level clubs needed to do a lot more than they did, or a lot better, West Brom, West Ham and Burnley for sure required more signings.

At the very bottom is Manchester United. In some ways the signings of Donny van de Beek, Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani look excellent but there's no doubt United messed up this summer.

The unbelievably poor attempts to sign Jadon Sancho didn't pay off and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn't improve his central defensive options or get a defensive midfielder either.

At the end it was all panic buying as Telles and Cavani were joined by young winger Facundo Pellistri on deadline day.

Woodward truly deserves his own tier!
