I only grade transfers where I've seen the player. If a player isn't here it's because I haven't seen them often enough (or recently enough) to feel comfortable doing it.

AND THAT INCLUDES KIERAN RICHARDSON PEOPLE!! =)

7
Arsenal
8
Alexis SanchezRF/ST~£30mAAThe sort of signing that makes the other 19 league teams jealous.
9
Mathieu DebuchyRB~£10mABHe plays better for France than he does for his club. A decent signing.
10
Calum ChambersRB/DMUp to £18mABFantastic utility option, but the rawest of all Southampton prospects.
11
12
Aston Villa
13
Philippe SenderosCBFreeBCAnything to get Nathan Baker further away from a football pitch.
14
Joe ColeAMC/WingFreeABAs a rotational creator, this isn't THAT bad of a deal.
15
16
Burnley
17
18
Chelsea
19
Cesc FabregasCM/AMC£27mAAHe's better suited to the English game. He'll star again.
20
Diego CostaST£32mAAHe'll hunt down chances on his own, and his physicality is perfectly suited to the EPL.
21
Filipe LuisLB£15-20mAAMost complete LB in football, but 29 in August.
22
23
Crystal Palace
24
25
Everton
26
Gareth BarryDMFreeAAPrimed to repeat his 2013-14 excellence.
27
Romelu LukakuST£28mAB£28m is a lot! He's great and could become elite, but he's not a sure thing. Needs major coaching to get there.
28
Muhamed BesicDM£4mBBTemperamental, but with big upside. Worth the gamble.
29
30
Hull City
31
Robert SnodgrassWing£8mACYou can get A LOT better than Snodgrass for £8 million.
32
Jake LivermoreCM£8m (approx.)ABA very robust, multifunctional midfielder.
33
34
Leicester
35
Marc AlbrightonWingFree?AVery astute pick-up. Works his nuts off and delivers great crosses.
36
37
Liverpool
38
Rickie LambertST£4mABA great "Plan B"; Lambert is far better that people let on.
39
Emre CanDM£10mAAAs long as he plays as an anchor—not a box-to-box—this is a wonderful deal.
40
Adam LallanaAMC/Wing£25mBCThis is a horribly overpriced move. Lallana is great, but £10 million too expensive here.
41
42
43
Manchester City
44
Bacary SagnaRBFreeBAPablo Zabaleta needs a partner to loosen the burden. Heavy wages though.
45
FernandoDM£12mAAThe perfect acquisition. Bye bye Javi Garcia.
46
Willy CaballeroGK£4.4mAAVery dependable, high-quality backup GK. Can challenge Hart for No. 1 spot.
47
48
Manchester United
49
Ander HerreraCM£30m (approx)ABA lovely player, but not elite-tier. The price stings a little.
50
Luke ShawLB £29mAAHe will become one of the best LBs in football; Man Utd can afford to pay an extortionate deposit.
51
52
Newcastle United
53
Siem de JongAMC£8mABNUFC needed to fill that Cabaye-shaped hole in midfield, SDJ is a good start.
54
Jack ColbackMC, LBFreeCBColback wasn't a big NEED, but he's very attractive as a free and taking him off Sunderland is a coup.
55
Daryl JanmaatRB£6mAALove Janmaat; a great stabilising, unheralded full-back.
56
57
QPR
58
Steven CaulkerCB£8mBAQPR needed to inject youth at CB and did so in Caulker. Commanding player.
59
Rio FerdinandCBFreeBBSwitch to 3 at the back from 'Arry should see Rio involved as a leader. A good one-season pickup.
60
61
Southampton
62
Graziano PelleST£10mABProvides exactly what Lambert did; an all-encompassing target man, fantastic linker.
63
Ryan BertrandLBLoanAALovely pickup, Bertrand was great for Villa in 2013-14. Relieves pressure on Targett.
64
65
Stoke City
66
Phil BardsleyFBFreeBBRedeemed himself by finishing the campaign strongly at Sunderland.
67
Mame Biram DioufCFFreeAADiouf is a little erratic/infuriating at times, but an excellent finisher and good all-round forward.
68
Steve SidwellCMFreeBBStill underrated. 110% effort, goal threat and defensive awareness.
69
70
Sunderland
71
Billy JonesRBFreeAAJones is seriously underrated, and Sunderland stood completely devoid of full-backs coming into the summer.
72
Costel PantilimonGKFreeCBA proven No. 2 goalkeeper to challenge Mannone on a free. Could be worse
73
74
75
Swansea City
76
Bafetimbi GomisSTFreeBCPersonal opinion: don't like him as a player.
77
Lukasz FabianskiGKFreeCAFabianski signing probably means Vorm is off. The pole has proven himself very capable.
78
Gylfi SigurdssonAMC£10mBASigurdsson's a great player once he gets on a run. Excellent signing.
79
80
Tottenham
81
Michel VormGK~£4mBAIdeal back-up for Lloris, good with his feet, good for the system.
82
Ben DaviesLB£10mAAWell-rounded LB ripe for improvement. Plugs a massive hole.
83
84
West Brom
85
Joleon LescottCB, LBFreeBBMcAuley and Olsson are very good, but a little depth is no problem.
86
Craig GardnerCM, RBFree
87
88
West Ham
89
Cheikhou KouyateCB£7mBBCould this be any more of a Sam Allardyce signing? Titanic in the air, limited in build-up/on ground.
