Ranking the 20 Premier League clubs by their net spend in 2021: Arsenal first

Quick Reads

While some European clubs have struggled financially in recent months, a lot of Premier League sides have continued to splash the cash.

We’ve ranked the 20 current Premier League clubs by their net spend since the start of the January 2021 transfer window.

Arsenal and Manchester United were the biggest spenders and they are the only Premier League clubs with a net spend of over £100million in 2021.

Liverpool fans have criticised their owners in recent months and it’s not hard to see why as they spent less than Norwich City and Newcastle United in the last two windows.

Despite breaking their transfer record to sign Romelu Lukaku for £97.5million this summer, Chelsea still made a profit due to numerous sales.

1. Arsenal – £123.3m
2. Man Utd – £115.3m
3. Man City – £83.88m
4. West Ham – £66.7m
5. Leicester City – £55.4m
6. Leeds United – £53m
7. Crystal Palace – £51.2m
8. Tottenham – £30.7m
9. Newcastle United – £26.4m
10. Norwich City – £25.8m
11. Burnley – £20.3m
12. Liverpool – £13.9m
13. Watford – £2m
14. Brighton – £0.4m profit
15. Chelsea – £3.9m profit
16. Wolves – £4.6m profit
17. Aston Villa – £5m profit
18. Everton – £5.4m profit
19. Brentford – £13.5m profit
