We are a month into the summer transfer window of 2014 and already there have been millions spent on quality players as teams, of course, look to improve their squads.

But who are the best players to have completed Premier League transfers so far?

GK: David Ospina

David Ospina had a very successful season at Nice and was also able to perform to distinction at the World Cup. The Colombia international was transferred to Arsenal this window for around £3 million, arriving as competition for Wojciech Szczesny.

RB: Mathieu Debucy

The French international had a solid season at Newcastle and the £12 million signing replaced Bacary Sagna at Arsenal. Debuchy links up with compatriots Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud and also is a very capable crosser and tackler, so should be a great replacement for Sagna.

CB: Dejan Lovren

Lovren made a move from Southamption to Liverpool for around £20 million and the Croatian will now partner Martin Skrtel at the back. Liverpool get their first taste of Champions League football for a while so Lovren will have to be up to standard, maybe having to come up against the likes of Ronaldo, Robben or even Suarez.

CB: Filipe Luis

Luis is a solid replacement for the recently departed Ashley Cole. The Brazilian left sided defender will link well with compatriots Oscar, Ramires and Willian. He slots in at centre-back for the purposes of this team.

LB: Luke Shaw

He left Southampton to go to Manchester United for a whopping fee and a lot of faith was placed in the young Englishman. Shaw has been signed as a long-term replacement for Patrice Evra, and it will be interesting to see how he slots.

MF: Ander Herrera

Likewise, Ander Herrera made a move to United from Athletic Bilbao. The Red Devils were linked with him last summer but now the deal has been made and the young play-maker has looked very promising so far in his pre-season matches with his new club.

There is an obvious link between him and Juan Mata so the midfielder should have no problems settling in.

MF: Cesc Fabregas

Again we have another Spaniard joining the Premier League; however, this player has already featured in the league beforehand with former club Arsenal.

A return to Arsenal looked on the cards but Cesc Fabregas has moved from Barcelona to Chelsea after the midfielder was told he was not needed by manger Arsene Wenger and Mesut Ozil had that role covered.

Fabregas is familiar with Jose Mourinho having played in many El Classico games but now the two are working together.

MF: Fernando

Fernando will provide depth to the Manchester City midfield role and may allow last season's star Yaya Toure to push up even further. He has looked lively in his pre-season matches and will be exciting to watch this year.

MF: Adam Lallana

Adam Lallana was signed from Southampton after an excellent season which resulted in his place in the PFA team of the year and a position in Roy Hodgson's England squad for the World Cup.

He will miss the beginning of the season for Liverpool, but could become very important upon his return.

CF: Alexis Sanchez

The forward became Arsenal's first signing of the window, closely followed by Debuchy, Ospina and Calum Chambers. The move was just over £30 million and gives Arsenal a much needed boost in their title hopes.

CF: Diego Costa

To complete the Premier League transfer XI, another Chelsea signing form the Liga BBVA.

Diego Costa, who was a key part in Atletico Madrid's success, is under pressure to become the frequent goalscorer Chelsea crave, and must live up to his £32 million price tag.
