Chelsea spent the amount they earned from Eden Hazard’s sale this year after their transfer ban was lifted. They did good business with some impressive young talent brought in including Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. They’ve performed decently this season and would hope their young squad will fire in the coming ones.

Leeds United

Total spent on buying players: £106.0m

Total earned on selling players: £0.0

Net spend: £106.0m

Leeds United finished in the top half of the table for the first time since 2001/02. To do this as a newly-promoted side means they did do good business in the transfer window. Money was spent well on players such as Rodrigo Moreno, Robin Koch, and Meslier.

Aston Villa

Total spent on buying players: £85.0m

Total earned on selling players: £0.0

Net spend: £85.0m

For a good chunk of the season, we thought Aston Villa could be the next Leicester by winning the league. However, it was just a good run of form. They ultimately finished 11th in the table but made impact signings such as Matty Cash, Ollie Watkins, Emiliano Martinez, and Bertrand Traore.

Manchester City

Total spent on buying players: £147.0m

Total earned on selling players: £70.5m

Net spend: £76.5m

The second-highest total spenders this time, you usually expect City to top these lists. With Ruben Dias, City bagged the signing of the season. Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake turned out to be effective squad players in City’s title-winning run. Overall, some very good business done by City this season.

Tottenham Hotspur

Total spent on buying players: £77.0m

Total earned on selling players: £12.0m

Net spend: £65.0m

Some promising signings were made by Spurs, including Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty, and Sergio Reguilon, but they had a dismal season going trophyless again and barely qualifying for the European third tier competition. Not the best £77.0m they spent this season.

Arsenal

Total spent on buying players: £81.5m

Total earned on selling players: £17.0m

Net spend: £64.5m

Arsenal did worse than Spurs and did not qualify for any European competition. They spent good money to bring in players such as Gabriel Magalhaes, Pablo Mari, and Cedric Soares but at least for this season it turned out to be bad business.

Everton

Total spent on buying players: £65.0m

Total earned on selling players: £2.0m

Net spend: £63.0m

If I made this list sometime between the start of the season and the first 10 gameweeks, I would easily say Everton did the best business. In the end, they still did some very good business but not qualifying for Europe isn’t too great a standard. Their midfield was packed by the signings of Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan, and the classy James Rodriguez.

Sheffield United

Total spent on buying players: £53.0m

Total earned on selling players: £0.0

Net spend: £53.0m

Terrible business for sure. Some good signings in the name of Oliver Burke, Aaron Ramsdale and Rhian Brewster, however, Sheffield were the worst team in the league this season with just 23 points.

West Bromwich Albion

Total spent on buying players: £42.3m

Total earned on selling players: £1.0

Net spend: £41.3m

Second-lowest in the table with 26 points, West Bromwich Albion, didn’t do anything great either. However, their signings Callum Robinson and Matheus Pereira were their only bright points this season. So, hopefully, they’ll hold onto them.

Manchester United

Total spent on buying players: £54.4m

Total earned on selling players: £18.0

Net spend: £36.4m

This net spend could’ve been much higher if they bought Jadon Sancho but it wasn’t to be. Decent business was done by United to bring in squad players such as Donny Van De Beek and Alex Telles. But their best signing, Edinson Cavani, came for free. 

Newcastle United

Total spent on buying players: £35.0m

Total earned on selling players: £0.0

Net spend: £35.0m

Callum Wilson was surely Newcastle’s best signing this season after scalping him and his Bournemouth teammate Ryan Fraser. They finished 12th in the table with a lot more to look forward to in the next season.

Liverpool

Total spent on buying players: £85.0m

Total earned on selling players: £52.8m

Net spend: £32.2m

Liverpool were perfect, you didn’t really think they’d need to buy players but still, they went out to buy the midfield maestro Thiago Alacantara and Diogo Jota. Defensive injuries ruined their season. But Jota was a real spark in this team.

Fulham

Total spent on buying players: £23.0m

Total spent on selling players: £0.0

Net spend: £23.0m

The third of the relegated teams, Fulham, mainly made strong loan signings, however, the new signings couldn’t help their team avoid relegation.

Southampton

Total spent on buying players: £34.9m

Total spent on selling players: £21.0m

Net spend: £13.9m

Southampton didn’t spend too much. They brought in Ibrahima Diallo and Kyle Walker-Peters. They were decent signings that didn’t make a great impact and ensured the club a 15th-placed finish.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Total spent on buying players: £87.1m

Total spent on selling players: £76.0m

Net spend: £11.1m

Wolves spent well on players such as Nelson Semedo and Fabio Silva but also earned in the sale of Doherty and Jota that brought down their net spend significantly. Not their best end to the season, however, as they finished 13th.

Crystal Palace

Total spent on buying players: £17.0m

Total spent on selling players: £10.0m

Net spend: £7.0m

Palace didn’t do too much in the window but the signing of Eberechi Eze from QPR has turned out to be very solid. They finished 14th this season, the same as last season.

Brighton

Total spent on buying players: £13.4m

Total spent on selling players: £10.0m

Net spend: £3.4m

No big-name signings this season saw Brighton finish 16th which is one worse than where they finished last year.

Burnley

Total spent on buying players: £0.0

Total spent on selling players: £0.0

Net spend: £0.0

Burnley finished 10th last year but finished just one place above the relegation zone this time. Maybe they need to start working on transfers for next season, something they didn’t do this time.

Leicester City

Total spent on buying players: £51.5m

Total spent on selling players: £51.7m

Net spend: £−150.0k

A negative net spend while securing the FA Cup and spending the most number of days in the Top 4 this season means Leciester did their business extremely well. Timothy Castagne and Wesley Fofana were some good names coming in while they saw Ben Chilwell leave.

West Ham United

Total spent on buying players: £20.0m

Total spent on selling players: £29.0m

Net spend: £−9.0m

The lowest net spend this season was achieved by West Ham United. They made two of the best signings by bringing in Thomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal, they also saw Jesse Lingard join in January on loan to help them secure European football for next season.
