10. Nicolas Otamendi: Signed by Manchester City for £32m from Valencia in August 2015
There were a few raised eyebrows when City agreed to pay Valencia a hefty £32m for the Argentine, particularly after the disappointment of also £32m signing Eliaquim Mangala the previous summer. With much of the work of defenders going unnoticed in comparison to forward-thinking players, it’s difficult for supporters to agree with such a price-tag, but Otamendi is slowly becoming key for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, moving ahead of Mangala and Martin Demichelis in the pecking order. His arrival has been even more important amid Vincent Kompany’s fitness concerns.
