Premier League clubs – Sven Botman will take summer 2022 transfer business sailing past £400m

2 months ago

The 2022 summer transfer window for the 20 Premier League clubs officially opened on Friday 10 June.

The window lasting 84 days / twelve weeks, until 11pm on Thursday 1 September when the window closes.

So far, seventeen of these transfer window days have passed, with 67 (including today – Monday 27 June) remaining.

We are now at the point where 29 incoming signings by Premier League clubs have been confirmed (listed below), with some £393m committed already in initial transfer fees.

These signings made in the first two and a half weeks of the window AND indeed a fair few agreed even before the transfer window actually opened.

With a £30m+ fee agreed between Lille and Newcastle United for Sven Botman and the player expected imminently on Tyneside for his medical, that will take the running total for Premier League clubs spend this window, sailing past the £400m mark.

This window looking likely to be one of the busiest ones ever.

Indeed, as things stand, with the business done so far, the Premier League clubs are set to beat their previous record of £1.43bn spent on signings back in summer 2017. That summer of 2017 saw Newcastle United only contribute around £35m to that record spending by Premier League clubs, as Mike Ashley refused to properly back Rafa Benitez, despite the demands of a return to the top tier. Indeed, there was a net spend of only around £15m allowed by Ashley, as whilst Lejeune, Jacob Murphy, Manquillo, Merino, Atsu and Joselu were bought in, we saw Thauvin, Daryl Murphy, De Jong, Hanley, Riviere and Mbabu all leave.
