Brighton transfers: Rating every incoming deal sanctioned by Roberto De Zerbi after £85m summer spend - gallery

Brighton and Hove Albion enjoyed a productive summer transfer window – but how do Roberto De Zerbi’s new arrivals rate out of 10?

Despite losing star midfielders Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister, most Brighton fans were pretty happy with the club’s dealings in the summer transfer window.

Caicedo went to Chelsea for an eye-watering sum of £115m, while Mac Allister moved to Liverpool for the slightly more modest fee of an initial £35m. Goalkeeper Rob Sanchez was also a notable departure as the out-of-favour stopper joined Caicedo at Chelsea for around £25m.

Head coach Roberto De Zerbi spoke of the need to improve the squad as this season they will compete in the Premier League, the Euopa League as well as the FA Cup and Carabao. The Seagulls have made a very good start to the new term, winning three and losing one of their opening four top flight fixtures.

As we pause for the international break, we look at the eight players who arrived this summer for a combined total of around £85m and rate each transfer out of 10.
