August 22, 2019 15:00 IST

There has been a lot of player movement between clubs in the English Premier League this season.

David Luiz, 32, made a deadline day move across London to Arsenal where he signed a two-year contract after spending three seasons in a second stint with Chelsea. He made his Arsenal debut the weekend before last in a 2-1 home win over Burnley. His move was valued at 8.7million euros.

The biggest transfer came when Manchester United signed LeicesterCity's England centre back Harry Maguire on a six-year contract on August 5.

British media reported that the transfer fee was in the region of 80 million pounds ($ 97.30 million), making Maguire the most expensive defender in the world.
