Next page »Top 5 Premier League clubs with the highest spending in the summer transfer window so far

With the transfer window now open for almost a month, we thought it would be a good time to take a look at the players who are spending the most money in the Premier League.

Although it can be said that there have not been any major transfers so far, most teams have been quite active.

Interestingly, the top teams (like Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United) have not really achieved much so far.

Click on the next page to list the five highest spending English teams this summer (based on figures from Transfer market).

5) Nottingham Forest – €52.2 million

Forest spent the most money on a single player: Newcastle midfielder Elliot Anderson was paid a whopping 35 million pounds.

That’s a huge sum for a 21-year-old who made 55 appearances for the Magpies and only 76 first-team appearances in total.

Forest have also tried to improve their goalkeeping situation, bringing in Carlos Miguel from Corinthians. The 2.03m goalkeeper will compete with Matz Sels and Matt Turner for a place in the starting eleven.

As for other new signings, defensive midfielder Marko Stamenic was brought in from Red Star Belgrade and teenager Eric da Silva Moreira came from St. Pauli.

4) Chelsea – €63.9 million

The Blues have been busy in the transfer market once again, snapping up Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall from Leicester City for £30 million, with the midfielder joining his former boss Enzo Maresca.

The club caused a stir when they spent £19 million on Aston Villa youngster Omari Kellyman and it will be interesting to see how many minutes the attacking midfielder gets next season.

Marc Guiu comes from FC Barcelona’s academy, but is expected to be loaned out almost immediately to play regularly in the first team.

Tosin Adarabioyo could turn out to be the bargain of the summer. The centre-back joined on a free transfer after his contract at Fulham expired.

3) West Ham – €70.5 million

Since Julen Lopetegui replaced David Moyes at the helm, the Hammers have been actively working to adapt the squad to the new head coach.

The most prominent new signing is undoubtedly Max Kilman. The London club paid £40 million for the Wolves defender. Interestingly, £8 million of that will go to amateur club Maidenhead United.

West Ham have also spent big on Brazilian youngster Luis Guilherme, with the winger potentially costing up to £25.5 million (including add-ons).

Wes Foderingham was signed on a free transfer from Sheffield United to replace Alphonse Areola and Lukasz Fabianski.

2) Aston Villa – €84.2 million

It has already been a very busy summer for the Villans, who had to get their accounts in order before June 30 to comply with the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

In addition to some high-profile departures such as Douglas Luiz and the aforementioned Kellyman, Unai Emery’s team has added five new faces.

Samuel Iling-Junior and Enzo Barrenechea were both involved in the swap deal with Juventus for Luiz, while young Lewis Dobbin and experienced Ross Barkley were also included in the squad.

The most expensive new signing, however, is Ian Maatsen from Chelsea, who cost the club £37.5 million.

1) Brighton – €84.5 million

Considering the Seagulls are not known for spending huge amounts of money on signings, it is interesting to see that the south coast club have been the highest spenders in the Premier League so far this summer.

Chairman Tony Bloom obviously wants to give his new head coach Fabian Hurzeler the best possible chance of being successful in his first season in English football.

A total of four exciting new signings were made. Among them, three wingers – Amario Cozier-Duberry from Arsenal, Ibrahim Osman from FC Nordsjaelland and Yankuba Minteh from Newcastle – have moved to Amex.

Brighton also spent a lot of money signing Mats Wieffer from Feyenoord.
