Poll: Who is the Premier League signing of the summer? Tottenham, Everton and West Brom newbies feature

Lacazette, Sigurdsson, Salah, Aurier

Tottenham Hotspur, West Bromwich Albion, Everton, Liverpool and West Ham United all made incredibly notable signings during the most recent transfer window.

With the summer transfer window now over, Premier League managers will be taking stock of the squads that they have available to them. But which summer acquisition was the best?

Before you get the chance to vote, HITC Sport has taken a look at the contenders...

Arsenal (Alexandre Lacazette)

Arsenal's most notable acquisition of a quiet window - in terms of incomings anyway - was undoubtedly Alexandre Lacazette, who joined in a club-record £46.5 million, according to BBC Sport. The Frenchman was one of the best performers in Ligue 1 over the last few years, and appeared to be a tremendous signing for the Gunners. He scored on his Arsenal debut in the narrow win over Leicester - and Arsenal fans will be hoping to see him bag a lot more after their disappointing start.

Chelsea (Alvaro Morata)

Another player who became their club's record signing this summer was Alvaro Morata, who joined Chelsea for £65 million, The Sun reports. The Blues forward has scored twice and contributed two assists in three Premier League games for Antonio Conte's side.

Crystal Palace (Mamadou Sakho)

After Crystal Palace's poor start to the new season, bringing Mamadou Sakho back appears to be a very wise move given how well he played for Palace during his loan spell at Selhurst Park last term. Crystal Palace boss Frank De Boer will be hoping that his return inspires the rest of the side following the international break.

Everton (Gylfi Sigurdsson, Wayne Rooney)

Everton will surely reflect extremely positively on their summer window, with their two most impressive deals being the decisions to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wayne Rooney. The Toffees paid £45 million for Sigurdsson, the Telegraph reported, while Rooney returned to Everton on a free transfer, the Daily Mail suggested. A repeat of Sigurdsson's form from last season would make him a tremendous signing for Everton, while Rooney has taken little time to find his feet in familiar surroundings, scoring twice in his first three games - which hints that he could prove to be one of the bargains of the window. 

Leicester City (Harry Maguire)

Harry Maguire was extremely impressive last season for a Hull City side that had little to be positive about, so Leicester will be delighted that they were the ones to win the race for his signature this summer. The centre-back has also already opened his goal account for the Foxes, scoring in the win over Brighton.

Liverpool (Mohamed Salah)

After Mohamed Salah's underwhelming previous spell in the Premier League, Liverpool fans would be forgiven for wondering whether the forward would be able to replicate the form he showed for Roma last year. But any doubters will surely now be keeping quiet as the Egyptian has been fantastic for the Reds, scoring in Liverpool's wins over Arsenal and Hoffenheim as well as the draw with Watford.

Manchester United (Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic)

Few can quite believe Chelsea's decision to sell Nemanja Matic to Manchester United as the midfielder has been fantastic for the Red Devils so far. Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has been excellent for United also, scoring three times in three Premier League games since his switch from Everton. The deals will surely leave many believing that Manchester United have enjoyed the best transfer window of any team in the top flight.

Stoke City (Jese Rodriguez)

One of the most surprising deals of the Premier League window was perhaps Stoke's loan capture of Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez - though the deal involving one of Jese's PSG teammates is also up there. The Spaniard scored the winner against Arsenal on his Potters debut.

Swansea City (Renato Sanches)

Another loan deal that took many by surprise this summer was Swansea City's signing of Bayern Munich starlet Renato Sanches. His career has stalled slightly at the Allianz Arena, but Paul Clement and the Swansea supporters will undoubtedly be delighted by his decision to join the Swans.

Tottenham Hotspur (Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier, Fernando Llorente)

Replacing Kyle Walker with Serge Aurier appears to be an excellent decision from Tottenham, while Fernando Llorente has also joined Spurs after an excellent year with Swansea and Davinson Sanchez also arrives at Tottenham with a big reputation. Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy appear to have saved what looked set to be an underwhelming window, and Spurs fans will be hoping that Sanchez and the deadline day arrivals hit the ground running with ground already to make up.

West Brom (Grzegorz Krychowiak)

It is surely incredibly difficult to call whether Stoke's move for Jese, Swansea's deal for Sanches or West Brom's capture of Grzegorz Krychowiak is the best loan deal done by a Premier League club this summer. The Baggies have certainly captured the imagination by landing Krychowiak. West Brom have made a bright start to the new season, and Krychowiak's arrival will surely boost their chances of building on that promising start.

West Ham United (Javier Hernandez)

It has been a disappointing start to the new season for West Ham and many suffering Hammers fans will be looking to Javier Hernandez to inspire a turnaround. The 29-year-old has scored both of the Irons' goals so far, and surely has the quality to help West Ham bounce back.

So there are the contenders, but who do you think has been the signing of the summer in the Premier League? Vote below...
