Premier League clubs have spent more than £300 million on signing new players this summer. Here are the 10 we are most excited to see. Naturally fitting the 'most exciting new signings' tag most of them are attackers. Let us know who makes your top ten.
The Japanese playmaker should be an excellent addition to the Premier League, scoring 13 times and providing eight assists in the Bundesliga last season. If he can transfer that form to United then they will have signed a gem.
Eden Hazard is Chelsea's new diamond, but will he sparkle straight away? So much has been said about the young Belgian, now is his moment to show what he can do on the pitch. He has a huge price tag to justify and we are looking forward to seeing him attempt to do so.
Pound-for-pound, Cazorla is potentially the best value signing of the summer. Arsenal snapped him up for £15 million, but he is arguably worth an extra £10 million. He is an expert at scoring from distance and from free-kicks, and the Gunners have a real player on their hands.
Gylfi Sigurdsson was superb for Swansea last season, and he will be expected to step it up a notch for Spurs now. A proven matchwinner, he showed in pre-season he has settled straight in at his new club, scoring goals, and he should be a real asset to his new side.
Michu was the highest scoring Spanish midfielder last season in La Liga, so it will be fascinating to see if he can produce the same kind of form over in the Premier League. If he can, then Swansea staying up should be a certainty.
Mladen Petric may be 31, but his best days could be ahead of him. He signed for Fulham on a free transfer, and he will hope to be a similar bargain to Demba Ba at Newcastle last season. The Croatian has been prolific in pre-season, and that is exactly the sort of form he needs to continue if he is to lead the Cottagers to a top 10 finish.
This is a new start for Lukaku at West Brom, and we will now see exactly what he is capable of. Touted as one of Europe's most promising young strikers his career stalled at Chelsea last season, and he will be extra keen to impress and get back on track. He scored for Belgium against Holland in midweek, and is clearly hungry to crack on.
Oscar is rated as Brazil's most talented young midfielder, ahead of Lucas Moura and Ganso. The fact we are going to get to see him week-in week-out in the Premier League is a real privilege and he is expected to be a real star of the future.
Robin Van Persie
How could we leave out Robin Van Persie? We know exactly what he can do, but can he do it at United? If he hits it off with Wayne Rooney, the rest of the Premier League is in big trouble. When he returns to the Emirates next April, it promises to be quite an encounter.
By the same token, Van Persie's part-replacement, part-almost team-mate Lukas Podolski is undoubtedly one to watch. He is an international star, and scored twice on his Arsenal debut in pre-season last week. He is a real big game player as shown at two World Cups, and should enjoy the intensity of the Premier League.
Who are you most looking forward to seeing?
