Baba Rahman, Chelsea to FC Schalke, Loan

Chelsea’s transfer windows in recent years are a bit hit and miss. The full-back, who cost £20m when signed from Augsburg last year, is not in boss Antonio Conte’s plans and has been sent back to the Bundesliga on a season-long-loan.

Kevin-Prince Boateng, AC Milan to Las Palmas, Free

Some may raise eyebrows at this but the La Liga side were solid last season, finishing 11th under the impressive Quique Setien. Following the former Spurs midfielder’s release from Milan, the Ghana international has signed a one-year deal with the Gran Canaria club.

Arkadiusz Milik, Ajax to Napoli, €35m (Dh144m)

Napoli have moved quick to replace the Gonzalo Higuain-sized hole left after his controversial departure to Juventus. Although he’s considered a target man, the 22-year-old is gifted technically and has an eye for goal, netting 22 league goals for Ajax last season.

Alex Song, Barcelona to Rubin Kazan, Free

The Cameroon international’s career has been on the slide ever since he was dropped by Barca. Since dominating in midfield for Arsenal earned him a move to the Catalan giants, he’s since had two loan spells with West Ham and has now turned up in Russia.

Idrissa Gueye, Aston Villa to Everton, €8.4m (Dh35m)

When it came interceptions last term, Gueye was one of the best. The only problem was, he’d immediately lose the ball with his passing letting him down. There’s a talented player in there, though, so Ronald Koeman has something to work with.
