Signing fee: £17.7 million

In 2019, the year after a reported move to Liverpool broke down, Real Betis signed  attacking midfielder Fekir – who was born in Lyon and joined the club's youth academy at the age of 12. 

Fekir made sure of a place in Rhones-Alpes derby folklore in 2017 when, after scoring the second goal in the closing stages of the 5-0 win at Saint-Etienne, he took his shirt off and brandished it to home fans, prompting missiles and a 40-minute delay to the action.
