The best of the EPL transfers

Top three transfers:

Wilfried Bony – Swansea City to Manchester City (£25m)

In Bony City have a proven Premier League goalscorer who really has the ability to take the pressure off Sergio Aguero. Despite having plenty of resources upfront, the failure of City's backup strikers has cost them dearly at times, and Bony should bring an end to that.

Juan Cuadrado – Fiorentina to Chelsea (£27m)

Cuadrado won many admirers during last year's World Cup in Brazil and for good reason too, he's fast, powerful and is able to provide a top class delivery. It may have seemed curious that Chelsea were so eager to get rid of Andre Schurrle to make room for Cuadrado, but the Colombian will prove worth it.

Gabriel Paulista – Villarreal to Arsenal (£13.5m)

Much has been made of Arsenal's lack of depth in the centre of defence and Arsene Wenger has eventually addressed this problem by brining in Gabriel. Perhaps most importantly Gabriel has pace and plenty of it. A lack of English may prove problematic at first, but the Gunners have got a good one in Gabriel.

Best loan deal:

Aaron Lennon – Tottenham to Everton (Loan)

Everton have struggled this season and desperately need a spark, as does Aaron Lennon's career. The winger's arrival should give the Toffees a lift, and should Kevin Mirallas spit his dummy out again, Roberto Martinez now has options to replace him.

They signed who?!

Manchester United won the race to sign defender Andy Kellett from Bolton, beating the mighty Plymouth Argyle to the 21-year-old's signature. The little-known Kellett was on loan at Argyle until a few weeks ago and arrives at Old Trafford at a time when the Red Devils had been linked with the likes of Mats Hummels, Kevin Strootman and Marquinhos. If this works out, Louis van Gaal may be a genius after all.
