Calvin Bassey - Ajax (£19.6m)

Two years ago Bassey was in Leicester City's reserves, but now he is gearing up for for his Champions League debut after joining four-time European champions Ajax in July.

As he awaits his first taste of elite European club football, the 22-year-old Nigerian can look back on a stellar Europa League campaign last season, with the centre-back one of the standout players as his former side Rangers lost the final on penalties to Germans Eintracht Frankfurt.

Despite starting his Dutch career in regrettable fashion, being dismissed in the 5-2 Super Cup defeat by PSV Eindhoven, the defender has helped Ajax reach top spot in the three Eredivisie games he has played since, all of which have ended in victory.

After a breakthrough campaign that showed what Bassey is capable of doing last season, Ajax should be the perfect place to refine and improve a player who is likely to be coveted by even bigger clubs in future.
