With under a month remaining in the transfer market, plenty of clubs will want to get deals wrapped up sooner rather than later to avoid a late trolley dash on August 31st.

Plenty of top clubs have already splashed the cash, with the exception of Manchester City, who have been uncharacteristically to date - although don't be surprised if manager Roberto Mancini is allowed to bring in a big name or two, with Roma's Daniel de Rossi and Napoli's Edinson Cavani linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium.

Away from the big clubs some pretty serious business has been done; QPR have spent some serious money while Swansea's business in the aftermath of Brendan Rodgers has been impressive - but can they match the big boys?

With City out of the running for now, and despite the fact that there is plenty of more business done before the end of window - whose buys have been the best to date?


5 - Fabio Borini was signed by Liverpool from Roma, and was the first new arrival under Brendan Rodgers.



4 - Shinji Kagawa was a £17 million buy from Borussia Dortmund for Manchester United, and has impressed in pre-season



3 - Jan Vertonghen joined Tottenham from Ajax having cut his teeth with the Dutch club in the Champions League



2 - Perhaps Brazil's best player in the Olympics, Chelsea snapped up Oscar for around £25 million



1 - Santi Cazorla is a classy operator and Arsenal have done brilliantly to land the midfielder for a cut-price £14 million
