Premier League clubs summer spending – Sven Botman takes total beyond half a billion
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 two of these transfer window days have passed, with 62 (including today – Saturday 2 July) remaining.
We are now at the point where 34 incoming signings by Premier League clubs have been confirmed (listed below), with some £500.5m committed already in initial transfer fees.
These signings made in the first three weeks (plus a day) of the window AND indeed a fair few agreed even before the transfer window actually opened.
With a reported £35m fee agreed between Lille and Newcastle United for Sven Botman and announced on Friday night , that takes the running total for Premier League clubs spend this window, sailing past the half a billion 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 on track 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.
So which Premier League clubs have been busy so far…?
A breakdown below for each club but after Tottenham and Liverpool, Newcastle United currently third top with £60m spent.
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.
