What each EPL team spent this summer

Breakdown: What each Premier League team spent in the summer transfer window

August 10, 2018 By Ali M.
Surprise, surprise, Liverpool and Tottenham sit on opposite ends of the spectrum.

The Premier League kick-off is right around the corner. After Man City cruised to the English top-flight title last season, the 2018-19 campaign will now start with Friday's clash between Man United and Leicester.

Each of the 20 teams participating in the league roughly knows what their squad will look like for the season, or until January, with the transfer window closing on Thursday. Here's how much each club spent during the summer in order from most to least.

NOTE: This list is not net spending, meaning some clubs balanced their books better than others by selling players.

  1. Liverpool: $209M (€182.2M)

  2. Chelsea: $157M (€137M)

  3. Fulham: $134.35M (€117.15M)

  4. Leicester: $131.43M (€114.6M)

  5. West Ham: $118.6M (€103.4M)

  6. Everton: $105.4M (€91.9M)

  7. Man United: $94.8M (€82.7M)

  8. Arsenal: $90.6M (€79M)

  9. Man City: $81.6M (€71.19M)

  10. Wolves: $80.3M (€70M)

  11. Brighton: $80.2M (€69.9M)

  12. Southampton: $71.4M (€62.25M)

  13. Bournemouth: $58.84M (€51.3M)

  14. Huddersfield: $53.3M (€46.5M)

  15. Newcastle: $39.7M (€34.63)

  16. Burnley: $37.8M (€33M)

  17. Cardiff: $35.3M (€30.75M)

  18. Watford: $28.7M (€25.05M)

  19. Crystal Palace: $12.3M (€10.7M)

  20. Tottenham: $0

Liverpool and Tottenham on opposite ends of the spectrum

Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League but was runner-up in the Champions League last season. In order to build on their promising campaign, Klopp spent left, right, and center to bolster his squad with the likes of Fabinho, Shaqiri, and Alisson.

Tottenham, on the other end, was the only team to spend nothing all summer. This might be worrying, as their English core – namely Kane and Alli – endured a tough World Cup campaign and might thus not hit the ground running once their season begins.

Fulham and Wolves – the newly-promoted high spenders

Signing Jean Michaël Seri, Luciano Vietto, Andre Schurrle, Sergio Rico in a single window is the type of business done by a relatively big club, but it was the newly-promoted Fulham that pulled this off. While some of those names were signed on loan, the London outfit was nonetheless the third-highest spender in England.

Similarly, Wolves landed the likes of Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho, and Adam Traore after winning the Championship last term.

Jose moans over United's spending

The Red Devils spent $94.8M, more than Arsenal and Man City. While the latter is already strong and did not need much reinforcements, the Gunners finished outside the top four and required more recruits that Mourinho's side. Nonetheless, Jose did not hide his anger after missing out on several targets.
