Premier League clubs on course for spending record with Declan Rice and Sandro Tonali set to be announced

Premier League clubs on course for spending record with Declan Rice and Sandro Tonali set to be announced

Can Premier League clubs break records again?

Below is the ten seasons journey of spending in the summer transfer window.

As you can see, a massive jump in 2022 after a period affected by Covid.

However, the new record spending last summer of £1.92bn, was also more than half a billion higher than the previous highest, £1.41bn back in 2017.

Spending by Premier League clubs each summer:

£606m – 2013

£863m – 2014

£871m – 2015

£1.12bn – 2016

£1.41bn – 2017

£1.23bn – 2018

£1.32bn – 2019

£1.30bn – 2020

£1.15bn – 2021

£1.92bn – 2022

This Summer 2023 transfer window opened on Wednesday 14 June, the first of 80 days.

Premier League clubs having until 11pm on Saturday 1 September to register new signings.

With 15 days of the transfer window gone, by my count there are already 22 deals for Premier League clubs and £390m committed.

With Arsenal’s £105m purchase of Declan Rice imminent, along with Newcastle United set to announce £52m Sandro Tonali, that would take the total to £547m already, that would take it to already past 28% of that record £1.92bn total in summer 2022, with currently only 18% of the transfer window days gone..

With countless massive deals in the planning and still 65 transfer window days (including today – 29 June 2023) remaining for signings to be registered, a long way to go and every possibility of cracking £2bn when it comes to the spending of Premier League clubs.
