It has been a very busy summer for the Premier League clubs, as they gear up for the next season.

Most of the teams have strengthened their squads, with Sunderland being the busiest club by bringing nine new arrivals.

It might be bit of a surprise that champions Manchester United have only signed 20-year-old Uruguayan right-back Guillermo Varela to date.

An even bigger surprise is Arsene Wenger's non-involvement in any transfers, apart from France U21 striker Yaya Sanogo's free transfer.

Let’s try and put together a playing eleven with the best of the new faces in Premier League this season, going with a 3-5-2 owing to the abundance of attacking talent in the summer signings.

GK: Maarten Stekelenburg

The former Roma stopper is reunited with Martin Jol following his £5million move from Roma. The 2010 World Cup finalist had won a couple of Eredivisie titles before his move to the Stadio Olimpico. He will want to establish himself quickly at the Craven Cottage and regain his form before the 2014 World Cup.

RCB: Dejan Lovren

The Croatian international has given up Champions League football at Lyon in favour of a move to Southampton.With the saints spending big this summer, they will push for European football next season and Lovren's signing will definitely help shore up Pochettino's back line.

CB: Steven Caulker

The Tottenham Hotspur academy product moved to the Premier league new boys Cardiff City, in the hope of finding more playing time ahead of the World Cup. The 21-year-old had impressed during his loan spell at Swansea, but struggled to establish himself Ander Villas-Boas’ defence last term. The Bluebirds will look to their record £8million signing to keep them afloat in the premier league.

LCB: Jordi Amat

Amat is the latest player to join Michael Laudrup's Spanish revolution at the Liberty Stadium. The 21-year-old is seen as one for the future, arriving for only £2.5million, and he might just turn into another bargain signing like his compatriot Michu last season. 

RM: Jesus Navas

Manchester City's first signing this season arrived in the form of Spain international Jesus Navas. The £15million signing has played more than 400 games and won six trophies, including two UEFA Cups and two Copa del Reys, with Sevilla. He will provide more width for Manuel Pellegrini’s attack, with Scott Sinclair not providing enough quality.

RCM: Fernandinho

The Brazil international joined Manchester City for a staggering £30million fee and he should take some pressure of Yaya Toure in the City midfield. The six-time Ukrainian Premier League winner with Shakhtar Donetsk will add force to Manuel Pellegrini's title challenge this season.

CDM: Victor Wanyama

Wanyama will be the first Kenyan to play in the premier league when he takes the field with the Saints. Mauricio Pochettino's £12.5 million signing was reportedly being tracked by Arsenal before moving to St Mary's. His ability to play at the back will provide more options for Southampton in defence. 

LCM: Paulinho

Andre Villas-Boas would look at Paulinho as the missing link in his midfield trio. The Confederations Cup winner will look to establish a good partnership with Mousa Dembele and Sandro, as well as provide more creative impetus for the Spurs' squad. The £17million signing will also bring trophy-winning experience to the Lane.

LM: Andre Schurrle

The 22-year-old Germany international is the latest addition to Chelsea's youth dominated squad. The former Bayer Leverkusen forward made a move to play under Jose Mourinho for £18million. One of Schurrle's key assets his quick long distance sprinting on counter-attacks. 

LF: Roberto Soldado

Tottenham have finally completed a deal for a world-class striker. The 28-year-old Spain international is a poacher in the mould of Filippo Inzaghi and Raul. AVB and Spurs' supporters would look up to him to solve the team's goalscoring problems.

RF: Stevan Jovetic

The 23-year-old is one of the most highly rated attackers in current times. Linked with Chelsea and Arsenal in the past, the Montenegrin finally moves to Manchester City to join former Fiorentina teammate Matija Nastasic. The £22million signing will be part of a new look attacking quartet at the Etihad Stadium.

Manager: Jose Mourinho

The 'Special One' is back in the Premier league with Europa League champions, Chelsea. But the Champions League winner with Inter Milan and Porto will look to add a third title to his already impressive trophy cabinet.
