Transfer Window: Chelsea have spent considerably more in the summer transfer window than any other club in the world in the last calendar year.
The blues are topping the list of most spenders in the world after having a net spend of £451million – however, there are other Premier League clubs in the top 10.
Todd Boehly-led Blues have spent close to £1bn since he took over the running of the club in 2022 with players such as Moises Caiedo and Enzo Fernandez arriving for over £100m each.
The Blues also spent £75m in signing of Wesley Fofana and £62m in signing Marc Cucurella.
Chelsea have managed to recoup some of the funds back by selling Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic for a combined fee of £142.85m.
Al-Hilal have completed the high-profile signing of Neymar, Ruben Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Malcom and Bono.
However, the Saudi club only brought in £1m from player sales in the Transfer Window, which came from Gustavo Cueller’s exit to Al-Shabab.
Arsenal are third on our list here after they added £105m midfielder Declan Rice, Havertz, and Jurrien Timber to their team this summer.
The Gunners also added the signing of Jorginho and Leandro Trossard in January and that took their net spend to £228m.
However, Mikel Arteta’s side has also made some money back after they were able to offload Granit Xhaka and Matt Turner.
Madrid recently forked out loan fees for Kepa and Joselu which pushed their net spent in the Transfer Window to £186 Million.
The shocking team that comes next is a struggling Premier League side, Bournemouth, despite their position, they had spent a lot in the market.
The Cherries were taken over by American businessman Bill Foley in 2022 and he made massive spending in January to ensure his team survives in the Premier League.
Foley has since bankrolled new manager Andoni Iraola who has spent over £100m already this summer.
Bournemouth have signed Leeds star Tyler Adams, Sassuolo winger Hamed Junior Traore and Bristol City’s Alex Scott.
This transfer window spending now put the Cherries on the number 5 spot with a net spend of £185m this summer.
Al-Ahli are the second Saudi side on the list in 6th place having spent over £150m in the transfer market.
The Saudi Side have been able to sign players like Riyad Mahrez, Roger Ibanez, Allan Saint-Maximin, Merih Demiral, Eduoard Mendy and Franck Kessie.
The rest of the list is rounded up by other Premier League clubs including Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool and Aston Villa.
