9. Fernandinho to Manchester City - £30m

Regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders, although untested at Premier League have already made more than 30 appearances in Champions League for Shakhtar Donetsk.

He could provide the creativity for the side from central midfield and ease pressure from teammates Silva and Yaya Toure, who are the side’s main playmakers.

If he can be a success at Manchester City, it would help in his quest to push for a place in next year’s World Cup for Brazil.

Had a decent pre-season, will need time to gel to new surrounding and break-through as the season progresses.
