The 2016/17 season is drawing to a close, and the summer transfer window is approaching. We take a look back at last year's top arrivals and how they fared in the Premier League.

10. Mamadou Sakho

The French defender was on loan from Liverpool at Crystal Palace, and he was a central part to Allardyce's escape from relegation. The Eagles are prepared to spend big this summer to keep him at Selhurst Park.

9. Idrissa Gueye

Fantastic performances for Everton in his breakthrough season have earned the holding midfielder heaps of praise. His numbers for tackles per game and interceptions are impressive, as is his successful pass rate.

8. Nathan Redmond

The Southampton attacker has had a great season at St. Mary's, which even got him a call-up for his full England debut. His ability has not gone unnoticed, and Puel's side will struggle to keep him in the summer.

7. Leroy Sane

Pep Guardiola has backed the German winger with his trust in his first season at City and the youngster has responded with fabulous performances which show a very promising future.

6. Fernando Llorente

The former Athletic Bilbao striker landed in South Wales ready to rebuild his reputation as one of Europe's top centre-forwards. His headers have been one of the main reasons for Swansea's salvation from dropping to the Championship.

5. Victor Wanyama

The midfielder Pochettino brought along from Southampton has not disappointed at White Hart Lane. His partnership with Dembele is unstoppable both defensively and when they burst forward.

4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

An unbelievable debut season in the Premier League for the 35-year-old Swede. He banged in 17 goals before limping off with an injury that could potentially end his career.

3. David Luiz

His spell at PSG did the Brazilian centre-back no favours, but his return to the Premier League saw a much-improved version of the defender. He has been a pillar at the back in Chelsea's title-winning season.


2. Sadio Mane

The former Southampton man settled in at Anfield perfectly. Electric and with plenty of pace, Klopp's side have greatly missed the winger when he has been out.

1. N'Golo Kante

The archetype of the modern midfielder. He did it at Leicester and has continued to do so at Chelsea, he just seems to cover the entirety of the pitch as he wins the ball and plays simple passes. He has reinvented the role of the midfielder, and has been a cornerstone in Chelsea's triumph.
