Top 5 / Top 10

The transfer window for European transfers came to a close on October 5. As per usual, lots of deals were completed at the last moment on deadline day.

Manchester United went from targeting Jadon Sancho to Ousmane Dembele to Ismaila Sarr, to finally buying 18-year-old Amad Traore from Atalanta. Barcelona failed to land Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia despite selling Rafinha and Jean Clair Todibo.

European Champions Bayern Munich made as many as 3 signings on deadline day - including PSG's Eric Chupo Moting, in what is among the weirdest deals this summer.

5 best transfers completed on deadline day

#5 Federico Chiesa to Juventus

It seems like a new beginning at Juventus under new manager Andrea Pirlo. And the final signing they made this window was of Fiorentina's Federico Chiesa. Chiesa is a 22-year-old winger who for the last few years has been among the best talents in Serie A.

Although there are question marks over Chiesa's output, it is only bound to improve playing alongside world-class players at Juve. Cristiano Ronaldo playing ahead of a 3 of Chiesa, Dybala, and Kulusevski can torment defenses across Italy, and perhaps even Europe.

#4 Jeremy Doku to Stade Rennes


On deadline day, Rennes sold talented winger Raphina to Leeds United, and impressively managed to replace him with Jeremy Doku. Doku is seen as a wonderkid, and Belgium sees him as the heir to Eden Hazard's legacy. He had 6 goal contributions from the 7 league games he played this season.

Although Klopp reportedly wanted Doku at Liverpool, moving to Rennes makes a world of sense, as it allows him to showcase himself in Europe without having to experience the pressure of signing for an elite club. At Rennes, he also gets to play with fantastic talents of his age like Camavinga, Terrier, and Maouassa.
