Premier League clubs summer spending – Newcastle United now sixth highest

1 month 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, twenty nine of these transfer window days have passed, with 55 (including today – Saturday 2 July) remaining.

We are now at the point where 47 incoming signings by Premier League clubs have been confirmed (listed below), with some £724m committed already in initial transfer fees.

These signings made in the first four weeks (plus a day) of the window.

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

Premier League clubs are now on track to beat their previous record of £1.43bn spent on signings back in summer 2017. With only around a third of this summer 2022 window gone, already past halfway in terms of beating that all-time record set five summers ago.

With any number of big signings (Sterling, Ake, de Jong etc) speculated as still set to happen, I can’t see how that record isn’t going to be broken, maybe even by the time the season kicks off in four weeks time.

So which Premier League clubs have been busy so far…?

A breakdown below for each club with Man City, Leeds and Arsenal leading the way, then Tottenham and Liverpool, before Newcastle United in sixth.

With any number of massive transfer fees set to happen (Sterling, Phillips, de Jong, Ake) and clubs such as Chelsea and Man Utd yet to even begin their spend, a lot of deals and cash still to come.

This gives us the following breakdown of all 20 Premier League clubs as at noon 2 July 2022, total money spent so far and then the individual signings in brackets:
