Premier League: how much did every club spend this summer?


Due to the impact of the coronavirus, no one knew how much football clubs would spend in the summer transfer market.

Some Premier League clubs decided to be cautious in the transfer market, including Liverpool.

The Reds spent big on the likes of Thiago and Diogo Jota but they made the money back through player sales.

While others, including Leeds, Aston Villa and Chelsea, decided to splash the cash with the hopes of having a successful season.

But how much exactly did every club in England's top tier spend? The net spend of every Premier League club from the summer transfer window has been listed below.
