With over £1 billion spent by the Premier League clubs, hundreds of players signed and almost as many sold, the 2016 summer transfer window was as eventful as ever. The transfer fee world record was broken, league spending record was broken, and with unearthly wages on offer, the Premier league was the destination for some of the biggest stars from all over the world.

From the £89 million world record signing of Paul Pogba to the £37 million shock signing of David Luiz, every club was on the lookout for fresh talent. But have these players proven their worth? Here we look at the best XI formed by new transfers from the 2016 summer window:

Goal Keeper: Victor Valdes

The goalkeeper position had little competition as most of the new transfers struggled to adapt to the league and new teams. Liverpool keeper Loris Karius has been in horrific form and his recent comments have done him no favours. Even though his performances have been woeful at times, it has been surpassed by Claudio Bravo’s horror show this season. 

Victor Valdes has been solid this season although not extraordinary. The 34-year-old Spaniard had a torrid time under van Gaal at Man Utd but his move to Middlesbrough this season has helped his career graduate to a respectable end. 

The former Barcelona man has grown in stature with each game and looks set to have a decent stint at Middlesbrough till he decides to hang up his gloves.
