And they have been rewarded with some big, big moves including Radamel Falcao’s move to Manchester United from Monaco.
One other player that could soon be joining another Premier League club is former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe who is, according to Metro, wanted in a shock swoop by Arsenal but also QPR.
The former England international has only been with Canadian side Toronto FC for a few months, but it seems that he could follow Ryan Nelsen out of the exit doors.
Defoe has jetted into England for talks and by this point, Arsenal fans don’t know whether they are coming or going, having just digested the news from talkSPORT that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is refereeing a charity match in Italy.
It had been assumed that the 31-year-old would link up with former manager Harry Redknapp at some point due to their history and this personal link could help seal the deal for the Loftus Road club.
Arsenal fans. Things are getting desperate in your chase for a striker but would you really welcome a former Spurs player in Defoe to the Emirates Stadium? Let us know your thoughts below.
