The transfer window is getting into full swing.

And with another month remaining before it closes, there are deals flying through and it can be difficult to keep up with them all.

Here's a few that caught our eye.

1. Grady Diangana £12.5m

West Ham to West Brom


Diangana spent last season on loan at the Baggies and produced a series of impressive performances, meaning the relatively modest fee they have spent him could be one of the shrewdest pieces of business we see in the window.

The fact that Hammers captain Mark Noble has shown his displeasure at the deal suggests that WBA picked up a real bargain.

2. Darwin Nunez

Almeria to Benfica


Benfica have been rebuilding their side this summer with both shrewd recruits and old heads; Jan Vertonghen has come in on a free transfer, but so has highly-rated winger Pedrinho from Corinthians.

And they have spent a considerable sum on Almeria's 21-year-old striker Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan scored 16 goals in 30 appearances in the Segunda Division last season and Benfica will hope he can hit the ground running in Portugal.

3. Timothy Castagne

Atalanta to Leicester


Ben Chilwell has departed for Chelsea for a huge fee and Leicester have moved back into the market quickly for defensive reinforcements, bringing in the attacking full-back Castagne from Atalanta

The 24-year-old is flexible enough to play on either flank and Brendan Rodgers will be appreciate of his versatility, and still has plenty of money left over to strengthen other areas of the side.

4. Matty Cash

Nottingham Forest to Aston Villa


Villa conceded plenty of goals last season and have set on the path of putting that right by bringing in Matty Cash from Nottingham Forest.

The 23-year-old arrives for a sizeable fee - £14m is a lot in this climate for a player untested at Premier League level - but he has an excellent reputation and will give Villa an option from right-back that they lacked last season.

5. Kevin Volland

Leverkusen to Monaco


Monaco have a particularly bloated squad but new boss Niko Kovac was keen to add another attacker and has acquired Volland from Leverkusen for a reasonable fee.

The 28-year-old, who can play either as an out-and-out forward or coming in from the left, provided a healthy 10 goals and seven assists in 27 Bundesliga appearances in 2019/20.
