10 under-the-radar summer transfers you might have missed

In case you haven't heard, Paul Pogba's rejoined Manchester United from Juventus for a world-record fee. Oh, you knew that? Abhinav Kini introduces 10 deals that may have escaped your attention...

1. Alex Song (Barcelona to Rubin Kazan, Free)

The Cameroonian moved to Barcelona in 2012 but was nothing more than a backup player for the Catalans, with Spanish fans even voting him the worst La Liga signing that year

Remember when Alex Song was lighting up the Premier League with his lofted through-balls to Arsenal team-mate Robin van Persie? Fast forward four years and he’s now plying his trade in Russia, with Rubin Kazan picking him up for nothing last month.

The Cameroonian moved to Barcelona in 2012 but was nothing more than a backup player for the Catalans, with Spanish fans even voting him the worst La Liga signing that year (alongside Luka Modric, so perhaps they're not the best judges). A two-year loan spell at West Ham was a little more productive but still not enough for him to land a permanent deal, paving the way for this summer's switch to Russia.

2. Ever Banega (Sevilla to Inter)

With Champions League football secured at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, it was a little surprising that Banega departed to join Inter a few weeks after last season's conclusion

After his injury-ravished time at Valencia, the Argentinian playmaker enjoyed an excellent two years at Sevilla, where he won the Europa League twice and became one of the best players outside of Spain's big three.

With Champions League football secured at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, it was a little surprising that Banega departed to join Inter a few weeks after last season's conclusion. The 28-year-old spoke of his desire for a new challenge as he tries to help the Nerazzurri challenge for trophies again.

3. Gianluca Lapadula (Pescara to AC Milan)

The Italian striker struck 30 goals in 44 Serie B appearances for Pescara last season and will be looking to make the step up to the top flight under new Milan boss Vincenzo Montella

With new owners at the helm Milan are embarking on a new era, with Lapadula set to spearhead the Rossoneri in the coming campaign. The Italian striker struck 30 goals in 44 Serie B appearances for Pescara last season and will be looking to make the step up to the top flight under the guidance of new Milan boss Vincenzo Montella.

With Mario Balotelli returning to Liverpool and Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano continuing to be linked with moves away, Lapadula could become a highly important figure in his first year at San Siro.

4. Lewis Cook (Leeds to Bournemouth)

One of English football's brightest young prospects, former Leeds man Cook was named Football League Young Player of the Year in April

Bournemouth have pulled off something of a coup with the acquisition of Lewis Cook, a highly-rated teenage midfielder who joined Eddie Howe's side for an initial £6 million. One of English football's brightest young prospects, former Leeds man Cook was named Football League Young Player of the Year in April and could go on to establish himself as a Premier League-class performer this term.
