Premier League clubs just love getting the chequebook out in the summer months, don't they?

Chelsea are the club who feature the most in the top 25, four of Frank Lampard's new additions making the cut and three of them featuring in the top 10 - with Havertz at number one.

The one major European heavyweight missing from the top 25 is Real Madrid and that's because for the first time in 40 years, Los Blancos didn't sign a single player in the summer window.
