Level of spending has been noticeable in Italy ahead of the new campaign.
After years of losing top talents and big names to their European counterparts with no significant return, clubs in Serie A have re-emerged this summer with their level of investment and spending.
Reigning champions Juventus have been able to benefit from their sustained level of success while buying within their means, working astutely in the market to bring in what they feel they require to compete both domestically and in Europe.
Elsewhere, their Milanese rivals have invested for the future in an attempt to reduce both the average age of their respective squads as well as the wage bill in order to build a more sustainable model for their long-term futures.
However, certain clubs who have shown the capability of breaking up the dominance enjoyed by the more historical top three have reinforced with impressive work in the market after selling their most prized assets.
With a flurry of new faces gracing the Italian game this season, our Serie A expert takes a closer look at the top 5 who are likely to make a significant impact.
Honourable mentions: Josip Ilicic (Fiorentina), Mauro Icardi (Inter), Felipe Anderson (Lazio), Dries Mertens (Napoli), Antonio Cassano (Parma).
