Last summer saw a record £1.2bn spent on Premier League transfers by the 20 top tier clubs.
Already, with 51 days of the transfer window still remaining, over £600m has been committed, in transfer fees and add-ons.
Little doubt remains that that £1.2bn figure is going to be well and truly smashed this time.
Listed below are the 49 Premier League transfers agreed so far, as confirmed by BBC Sport.
Interestingly/amusingly, Newcastle are credited with four: Christian Atsu and Florian Lejeune, plus Stefan O’Connor and Josef Yarney. That last pair were released by Arsenal and Everton respectively and have gone into Newcastle’s Under 23 set-up – the duo aged 20 and 19.
Guessing that around half of the other 45 players to move, Newcastle could have potentially gone for (or did go for and didn’t get….) but which, if any, would have been the right ones for NUFC?
The Premier League kicks off once again in only 31 days time and you would have to be pretty confident that at least another £600m will have been spent in the meantime, taking us to a new record with a few weeks to spare.
Interesting to see just how much of that potential £600m+ will be down to Newcastle.
