The transfer window has been open for almost a month now and already lots of big-name players have joined Premier League clubs.

Names like Andre Schurrle, Jesus Navas, and Fernandinho will all be playing under clubs in England's top-flight, which should make next season's competition explosive. 

Andre Schurrle | Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea

Having only scored a good seven goals for Germany and 23 for his last club, Bayern Leverkusen, this attacking midfielder is a great goal-smashing addition to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

His counter-attacking brilliance has been hailed by the press in recent years and the pace he's added to the German national team has been causing problems for many other national teams defences.

His career in the Bundesliga has seen him grow into the player he now is. Having played two season with Mainz 05 and scoring 20 goals for them he then transferred over to Leverkusen, where he scored another 23 goals over two seasons.

This brings his record in Germany to an impressive 43 goals. Schurrle will almost definetly impress at Chelsea and in the Premier League.

Fernandinho | Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester City

Fernandinho spent eight seasons with Shakhtar Donetsk, where he proved himself to be a great player.

His goalscoring peaked between 2007-2009, when he scored 23 goals in two seasons. But in recent years he's not found the net quite as often: having only scored one goal in each of his last two seasons with the Ukrainian Premier League team - the move to Manchester City was probably best for him.

Jesus Navas | Sevilla to Manchester City

Jesus Navas is set to become an amazing new player for Manchester City. His attacking brilliance has been seen many a time both at his club Sevilla and the Spain national team.

The ability to run at and through defences will be his key asset along with his dribbling skills. He's not known for the goals he scores but more the assists and the parts he plays in attacks. He has set up 77 goals for his club in the last 10 years.

Navas is a rather different player compared to Fernandinho as Navas looks much more like a ready-made City player.

Although we're only just a month of the way through the window, the 2013/14 Premier League campaign looks set to be an explosive season.
