Devised to track which Premier League clubs are conducting the most impressive purchases or the savviest sales, this week marks the beginning of our EPL Summer Transfer Window Power Rankings.
Sides will be graded on a proportional scale in order to give the fairer results, meaning each bit of business is measured in terms of impact for that particular club.
This means that even though Hull City aren’t going to be signing the Edinson Cavani or Radamel Falcaos of the world, they can still be considered as those doing the “best business.”
What’s more, speculation and rumour can play a part in a team’s rankings but will always rank lower than official transfer news and be graded on credibility, as well as likelihood of the reported transfer going through.
With those formalities established, read on to see just who’s already taken the initiative a month prior to the window’s official opening, and who’s been resting on their laurels.
Note: Contracts expiring this summer won't become official until June 30, 2013 in most cases, but can be agreed early.
