As is the case with any of Europe's elite leagues over the summer transfer window, the Bundesliga saw an influx of comings and goings across July and August.
While some of these moves were nothing to write home about, German football fans were also treated to a few absolute humdingers.
This article attempts to rank the best of the best in Germany this year, taking into account the impact that the transferred player has already had on the side, as well as the potential for greatness in the seasons ahead (this of course applies much more to superstars of a younger age).
While some names on this list are fairly obvious, there may be a few quieter players higher up the rankings than some fans might expect. Remember, the players with the most impact do not always steal the limelight (think of Michael Carrick at Manchester United).
There may also be some players missing who a lot of you would naturally assume instantly stroll into the top 15.
For example, while many would cite Luiz Gustavo's move to Wolfsburg as one of the biggest transfers of the summer months, whether or not he was worth the money spent on him, or has thus far performed well for his new side is in doubt.
As such, he remarkably does not find a place in the rankings (let's just say he was 16th for the sake of it).
So, without further ado, let's take a look at the 15 best transfers that the league has witnessed so far in this campaign.
