The Premier League signings to watch this season

The Premier League summer transfer window closes on August 8, with the 2019-20 season scheduled to kick off the following day.

All 20 clubs have now made signings as they prepare for the opening weekend.  

Here, Sportsmail highlights some new signings to look out for in the upcoming campaign.

Tanguy Ndombele (Tottenham)

France midfielder Ndombele became Spurs' first major purchase since January 2018 when he arrived from Lyon for a club-record fee. Costing a reported £53.8million, big things are expected of the 22-year-old. He has signed a six-year contract and is targeting trophies with the London club as they look forward to a first full season in their new stadium and attempt to build on a maiden Champions League final appearance.

Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)

With Chelsea awaiting the outcome of a transfer ban appeal, new boss Frank Lampard could have his hands tied in the market. However, their ranks will be boosted by the arrival of United States international Pulisic, who was signed from Borussia Dortmund for £58m in January before being loaned back to the Bundesliga club. The 20-year-old winger should inject attacking creativity as the club look to cope with the departure of Eden Hazard.

Rodri (Manchester City)

After securing successive titles, Pep Guardiola's side are not resting on their laurels. The £62.8m capture of holding midfielder Rodri, 23, from Atletico Madrid is a clear statement of intent from the champions. The towering Spain international, who has been compared to Barcelona's Sergio Busquets, believes he will be working for the 'greatest coach in the world' and will compete to become the long-term replacement for 34-year-old Fernandinho.
