The Premier League may not attract the likes of Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani but there's been plenty of striker signings this summer to appease the supporters - Arsenal excepted, of course.
From Roberto Soldado to Pablo Osvaldo, GMS has ranked the top 5 most expensive Premier League striker signings this summer so far based on three key factors - transfer fee, number of goals scored and the relative strength of the league they played in.
So Soldado and Negredo enjoy a 3x bonus having played in the toughest league last season according to UEFA, La Liga.
In contrast, Ricky van Wolfswinkel scored his 14 goals in Portugal - only the fifth best league in Europe, according to the most recent coefficients.
For those interested, here's the boring maths bit - we've divided the number of goals scored by the transfer fee paid and then multiplied that by our own GMS coefficient ranking.
Spain, as the toughest league, gets a 3x bonus. The Premier League would have received a 2.5x but there's been no big-money striker transfers within the league so far. Germany gets a 2x bonus, Italy as the fourth strongest gets a 1.5x.
Portugal and Holland are the relative rank outsiders and receive a 1x bonus.
Anyway, here you go - the GMS striker rating makes its long-awaited debut...
