The 10 Biggest Transfers Of The EPL Window

With the Premier League transfer window having come to a close on Thursday, here are some of the high-profile signings that were confirmed ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Click through the gallery above to see 10 big-name transfers that went through in England's top division's latest window.

The window slammed shut on Thursday evening, but prior to the chaos that is deadline day, most of the top sides in England had already landed their main targets.

Chelsea fans can look forward to seeing new manager Maurizio Sarri work with some fresh faces at Stamford Bridge following the arrivals of a few high-profile players.

New goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga might not have the biggest name yet in football, but his £71 million (R1.2 million) price tag suggests he is one of the hottest young prospects around. The Blues also secured the signature of Italy international Jorginho, who snubbed Manchester City for his move to London.

Despite being at the club on a one-year loan deal, the arrival of Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid has got supporters on the edge of their seats. The Croatian comes to Chelsea with the hopes of playing more regularly than he does at Los Blancos, and could thrive in Sarri's fast-paced, attacking system.

Manchester United's acquisition of Brazil international Fred is a transfer that has excited many, as has Manchester City's record buy of Riyad Mahrez. The former Leicester City man has proved himself in the Premier League, but playing under Pep Guardiola might be his toughest challenge yet.

Jurgen Klopp did fantastic business with some of his signings at Liverpool during the off-season, although his best deals were arguably Alisson from Roma, Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and Fabinho from Monaco.

Arsenal's biggest signing of the window was perhaps Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. The Greece international will look to provide stability to the Gunners' backline and has leadership skills that Unai Emery's side will undoubtedly benefit from.

Finally, Yerry Mina also arrived at Everton with a big reputation following his impressive 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign, during which he scored three goals in as many matches for Colombia.
