Top 10 most expensive transfers of January 2023

To nobody’s surprise, all of the most expensive transfers of January 2023 have been to the Premier League. And in this post, we will be taking a look at the top ten most expensive signings of the month gone by. 

Top 10 most expensive transfers of January 2023 

10. Danilo: Palmeiras to Nottingham Forest – £17.8m 

One of the most expensive transfers of January 2023 comes from relegation-battling Nottingham Forest, who has signed Danilo on a 6.5-year contract. 

9. Andrey Santos: Vasco Da Gama to Chelsea – £18m 

The young Brazilian is proving to be a bargain, scoring five goals in as many games for Brazil in the U-20 South American Championships. As a result, he could be in line for a promotion to the first team very soon.

8. Dango Ouattara: Lorient to Bournemouth – £20m 

Ouattara is a signing that might have flown under the radar. But, the Burkina Faso forward has signed on a £20 million deal, having scored six goals in 18 Ligue 1 games this season. 

7. Leandro Trossard: Brighton to Arsenal – £21m 

£21 million for one of Brighton’s top players seems like a steak, especially considering the start he has made for Arsenal. After missing out on Mykhaylo Mudryk, Trossard could be a crazy signing who is just hitting his peak years.

6. Georginio Rutter: Hoffenheim to Leeds – £24.8m 

Rutter is Leeds United’s most expensive signing of all time and will be expected to help them out with their goalscoring woes. He has scored 11 goals in 61 Bundesliga games, and fans will be hoping for a better return from him in England. 

5. Noni Madueke: PSV Eindhoven to Chelsea – £30.7m 

Madueke signed for Chelsea after coming through the Tottenham academy, and was one of their eight new arrivals. A skilful and fast winger, he has the ability to take on his man and go for goal – which is exactly what Chelsea need right now. 

4. Benoit Badiashile: Monaco to Chelsea – £34m 

The France international has been a relatively quiet signing, but has been performing exceptionally well. He has been the left-sided central defender that was needed, and what a signing he is proving to be so far. 

3. Cody Gakpo: PSV to Liverpool – £37.2m 

Manchester United were expected to land Gakpo in January… until Liverpool came in and finalised the transfer. Gakpo has struggled to deliver so far under Jurgen Klopp. But, he is a remarkable talent and it seems only a matter of time before things start to fall into place for him. 

2. Mykhaylo Mudryk: Shakhtar Donetsk to Chelsea – £62m + £26.5 add-ons 

Mykhaylo Mudryk to Arsenal seemed like a done deal until he was holding up a Chelsea shirt as one of the most expensive transfers of January 2023 until deadline day. The West London club reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for a massive fee, and have signed the winger on an eight-and-a-half-year deal.

1. Enzo Fernandez: Benfica to Chelsea- £106.8m 

Chelsea’s persistence helped them land the 2022 World Cup’s young player of the tournament on a British record fee, placing him atop the most expensive transfers of January 2023. Enzo Fernandez left Benfica after only six months and is expected to play a huge part in the Blues’ project going ahead.
