Premier League transfer spending rankings 2022/23: Haaland, Nunez, Richarlison, Jesus 2022

The Premier League has rocked the world of global football when it comes to financial power, and nowhere has the muscle been flexed more than in the transfer market.


The 2022 summer transfer window has not been the exclusive domain of Premier League clubs, but they have shown a willingness to spend big in the right areas. Top English teams such as Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United have opened their wallets to bring in players, hoping they will translate the cash into results on the pitch.

During this transfer window, and beyond if you take the last few years into account, Premier League clubs from top to bottom have proven their wealth.

Even newly promoted sides are able to flex their financial muscle, thanks to the access the EPL gives them to one of the biggest domestic payouts in world football.


Here, The Sporting News brings you an overview of the latest financial transactions in the Premier League, as well as a brief look at the recent transfer history of each current EPL club.

Premier League club spending in the 2022/23 transfer window

While Arsenal led the EPL’s early spending following the break for Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, recent deals have seen the Gunners pass away.

Chelsea’s mega-deal for Brighton defender Mark Cuccorella put the Blues at the top of the spending list, but since, West Ham’s spending has seen the Hammers overtaken. West Ham has brought in eight players this window, with three costing more than £30 million. More recently, the arrival of Lucas Paqueta for £40.46 million took the Hammers to the top of the spending standings.

By contrast, Man City has received the most transfer revenue of any team so far, thanks to the aforementioned Arsenal duo plus Raheem Sterling’s departure to Chelsea. Brighton, meanwhile, has the most positive net spend thanks to the Cucurella deal.

Nottingham Forest has by far the highest net spending of any new 2022/23 Premier League club, with five different players costing at least £9 million. That’s no surprise, given the need to strengthen their bid to stay in the top flight, after winning promotion via the Championship play-offs last term.

Leicester City is the only Premier League team yet to spend a single pound in the transfer market, having so far failed to bring any new arrivals to the club.

Most expensive Premier League transfers 2022/23

Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez is, by far, the most expensive player to move to a Premier League club during the 2022/23 summer transfer window.

Raphinha is the most lucrative sale, providing Leeds United with a high value, allowing them to reinvest in building their squad.

Interestingly, seven of the top 10 Premier League departures went to other English clubs, suggesting that the top flight prefers to recycle talent rather than send it to other European leagues.
