Benjamin Mendy £52m
4 caps for France at time of transfer.
Kyle Walker £50m
27 caps for England – since 2011 – 27 caps in 6 years. Enjoyed a good season with Tottenham last season but it wasn’t that long ago he was regarded as too error prone in big matches to reach elite defender status.
Nathan Aké £20m
5 foot 11 inch centre back with 2 caps for Holland who spent 6 years at Chelsea – often out on loan – before moving on for first team opportunities.
Bernardo Silva £43m
16 caps for Portugal for the 5 ft 8 in midfielder. His two international goals to date have come against Gibraltar & New Zealand. His goalscoring rate drops from 1 goal per 3.9 appearances in the French League to 1 goal per 10 appearances in European competition.
Tiemoué Bakayoko £40m
Capped once by France at time of transfer.
Mohamed Salah £34m
53 caps & 29 goals for Egypt at time of transfer.
77 caps & 52 goals for Brazil for the 25 year old superstar. Managed 68 goals in 123 league games for Barcelona. Neymar plays as either a central striker, second striker, winger or occasionally as an attacking midfielder. He often plays as a left sided forward, drifting infield which allows him to shoot with his stronger foot, or create chances. Neymar’s skills are reminiscent of Ronaldinho. Although right-footed, he is capable of scoring with both feet, as well as with his head, and is an accurate free-kick and penalty taker.
Alexandre Lacazette £46.5m
Capped 11 times by France with just 1 international goal which came in a friendly in 2015.
Romelu Lukaku £75m
Álvaro Morata £60m
