Sokratis Top, Mkhitaryan Flop: Reviewing Borussia Dortmund's 2013-14 Transfers
Martin Meissner/Associated Press

The summer of 2013 saw Borussia Dortmund invest in the transfer market like never before. A windfall in revenue from progress to the Champions League final and the sale of Mario Goetze to Bayern Munich left BVB with the means to address deficiencies in squad depth.

Over the course of the summer, BVB invested €50 million.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos was first to sign, then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Henrikh Mkhitaryan was the third and final addition as BVB reported net spending (albeit only by a margin of less than €400 thousand) for the first time since the summer of 2010.

Dortmund's new trio have experienced mixed performances in their first term at the Signal Iduna Park. Curiously, their utility has been inversely proportional to expectation and the price paid for them. Click "Begin Slideshow" for a breakdown of each player's performance.
