5. Fernando Torres | Atletico Madrid to Liverpool | £20m

What a glorious time this was, a simpler time. Fernando Torres was world-class, Liverpool were consistently in the top four and nobody knew who Justin Beiber was.

Captain of Atletico Madrid while still a teenager, Torres eventually joined Liverpool in the summer of 2007.

And in four magnificent years he bagged a stunning 65 goals in 102 league appearances. He was quick, strong, a lethal finisher - basically the perfect Premier League striker.

And he helped Liverpool to their best ever Premier League finish - second. And bonus points because Liverpool sold him on for £30m profit at just about the perfect time.
