The 2012-13 Premier League campaign made for interesting viewing in the middle of the season, but by the very end of the campaign, it was all a little bit flat.
Relegation spots for all three teams were all but decided, the title stayed in Manchester but changed stadiums some weeks before the end and most of the middle group of teams were too far away to even challenge for a rare Europa League spot.
The only real outstanding issue moving into the last day was the fight for a top-four spot between the two North London sides, Arsenal and Tottenham.
What the English top flight needs this summer, then, is a host of quality additions in the transfer market, star imports to boost the quality of teams fighting near the top of the table. Managerial changes at four of the top seven clubs, allied to the usual clutch of transfer activity, mean it could well be all-change as teams battle for supremacy.
Getting the big signing of the summer right could well mean the difference between more than one or two places in the final standings next May. Here are five rumoured deals that could shake the league up in a big way.
