Much of the best work in the summer transfer market was done in Italy, and specifically in Milan.
While the Rossoneri captured Fikayo Tomori to lead the list, goalkeeper Mike Maignan, who made a €12m move from Lille to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma has also started the campaign in formidable form and comes in second.
The highest-ranking player in the Premier League is Everton’s Demarai Gray, whose bargain switch to Goodison Park from Borussia Monchengladbach has seen him bag sixth place. He was the only player from England’s top flight to make the top 10, but Crystal palace defender Marc Guehi has now joined him.
