28) Dejan Lovren (Liverpool)
A top-class defensive signing for Liverpool, Dejan Lovren made the £20m move to Anfield from Southampton after a highly impressive debut season in English football last year. The solid Croatian international should help improve the defensive performances of Brendan Rodgers’ side as they look to bounce back in the title race this term.
27) Bacary Sagna (Manchester City)
Another top defender on the move this summer, Manchester City did well to snap up the highly reliable and experienced Bacary Sagna on a free transfer from rivals Arsenal, who will be devastated to see such a top player leave the club at the end of his contract.
