4. Diego Costa, from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea for £32 million
We reckon Chelsea have sealed a bargain here with Luis Suarez rumored to have cost Barcelona £75 million. Half the price but Diego Costa is definitely not half the player. Of similar ability Diego Costa will show his value in the Premierleague instantly. He is an aggressive, strong and pacy player that scores goals for fun. Having led Atletico Madrid to their first La Liga title since 1996 and the Champions League Final in the 2013/2014 campaign Diego Costa proves to be a brilliant addition to their ranks.

It was almost certain that he would make the switch to Liverpool with Luis Suarez heading the other way, however luckily for Arsene Wenger, he was able to convince the Chilean star winger to make the move to the Emirates. Another a player that will instantly lighten up the Premiership with his magical ability to get players, pick out vital passes and score from the most awkward positions Arsenal have really purchased a fantastic player. Alexis Sanchez managed to score 19 La Liga goals for Barcelona the previous season. Arsenal fans may finally get their chance to finish above 4th this upcoming season!
