New signings to watch this summer

It was a busy transfer Deadline Day as Premier League clubs looked to strengthen before the window closed.

So when the action restarts following the international break, there will be a number of big names featuring for new clubs.

Here, we pick out just five to look out for.

 Alex Oxlade -Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been firmly in the spotlight since making his move from Arsenal to Liverpool on Deadline Day. The England man started both of his country's World Cup Qualifiers during the international break, being booed by sections of the Wembley crowd in the win over Slovakia on Monday. Eyes will be on him again this Saturday lunchtime.

 Mamadou Sakho

 Crystal Palace fans were craving his return all summer after Sakho won them over with a series of strong performances for Sam Allardyce's side late last season. The former Liverpool defender is back at Selhurst Park under Frank de Boer and while not such an obvious fit for the Dutchman's style of play, his qualities have been hugely missed thus far.

Wilfried Bony

Many regarded Manchester City's purchase of Wilfried Bony as a good addition to their forward line given his impressive return of 26 goals in 54 games for Swansea during his first spell in Wales. But the Ivorian could not make the required impact, scoring only six Premier League goals for City and making little impression on loan at Stoke last season either.

Renato Sanches

Bony might be the returning hero at Swansea but such is Sanches' reputation, it is the loan signing from Bayern Munich who has caused more of a stir following his deadline-day move. Paul Clement has pulled off quite the coup in bringing one of Europe's most gifted young players to the club, using his contacts in Bavaria to help seal the deal.

Serge Aurier

Aurier's arrival at Tottenham was a controversial one given the baggage that the defender brings with him from Paris Saint-Germain but few are questioning the capabilities of the player. The Ivory Coast international full-back has the qualities required to make light of the loss of Kyle Walker and give Spurs real energy down that right flank once more.
