Premier League clubs – Table of summer transfer spending from highest to very lowest

2 weeks ago

Tuesday 31 August 2021 marked the end of the transfer window for Premier League clubs.

The 84 days of the window coming to a close with varying levels of business.

So who spent big and who spent…not so big?

Listed below are all 20 Premier League clubs, going from the very highest spenders in this 2021 summer transfer window, down to the very lowest spenders.

Sumer 2021 transfer window spending – Premier League clubs (figures collated by Lancs Live):

Arsenal: £147,500,000

Man United: £131,000,000

Man City: £113,800,000

Chelsea: £97,500,000

Aston Villa: £85,000,000

Tottenham: £61,800,000

Crystal Palace: £60,900,000

Leeds: £58,500,000

Leicester: £55,000,000

West Ham: £52,000,000

Norwich: £50,900,000

Brighton: £40,200,000

Southampton: £36,700,000

Liverpool: £36,000,000

Brentford: £30,500,000

Burnley: £27,000,000

Wolves: £22,150,000

Newcastle United: £22,000,000

Watford: £17,350,000

Everton: £1,700,000

Ahead of the transfer window and even regularly during it, Steve Bruce kept insisting that very little business was being done and very little money spent.

Something that wasn’t exactly true.

As you can see, whilst there are four of the ‘big six’ in the four highest spender positions, only two clubs spent less than Newcastle United.

Everton have financial fair play issues limiting their spending due to very high spending in previous windows. Whilst with Watford, they have spent just over £4m less than Newcastle United BUT unlike NUFC, they have made a number of loan signings, as well as permanent buying deals.

As for Newcastle’s other relegation contenders, compared to the NUFC £22m figure, you have Crystal Palace (£60.9m), Norwich (£50.9m), Brighton (£40.2m), Southampton (£36.7m), Brentford (£30.5m), Burnley (£27.0m).

All of these clubs doing far more than Mike Ashley’s Newcastle United to protect against relegation and try to be competitive.
