Chelsea were by far the biggest spenders in the summer transfer window, splashing in excess of £200m to completely rejuvenate their ranks.
Edouard Mendy, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr all arrived in west London, representing some eye-catching business.
