Transfer Deadline Day: How much did your club spend

01 Sep 2017, 10:30

Premier League clubs spent a record £1.47billion during the summer transfer window - but how much did your club spend?

The total expenditure surpassed last summer's previous record, when the £1 billion threshold was smashed for the first time, by almost £300m.

Manchester City splashed the most cash this summer, with an outlay of £217.3m - primarily on defensive signings Kyle Walker (£50m), Benjamin Mendy (£49.2m), Danilo (£26.9m) and goalkeeper Ederson (£34.7m) - in addition to midfielders Bernardo Silva (£43m) and Douglas Luiz (£10m).

 Chelsea overtook Manchester United as the next biggest spenders on Deadline Day, with last-minute signings Davide Zappacosta (£23m) and Danny Drinkwater (£35m) joining fellow summer acquisitions Antonio Rudiger (£34m), Tiemoue Bakayoko (£40m) and Alvaro Morata (£70m) to total £202m.

United spent £169.5m on blockbuster signings Romelu Lukaku (£90m), Nemanja Matic (£40m) and Victor Lindelof (£39.5m), while Jose Mourinho also re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer.

The Gunners made a net profit of +£17.8m, with the sales of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£40m), Wojciech Szczesny (£13.5m), Gabriel (£10m) and Kieran Gibbs (£7m) offsetting their £52.7m coup of Lacazette in July.

Spurs collected £50m for Walker and £18m for Wimmer before splashing almost all those profits on Davidson Sanchez for £38.4m and Serge Aurier for £23m, while Stoke (+£11m) and Burnley (+£9m) also made profit.

Everton, Watford and newly-promoted duo Huddersfield and Brighton made more signings than any of the other clubs - each adding 13 new players to their ranks - while the Terriers also completed a league-high three loan deals.

In contrast, Arsenal were the least active Premier League club - only signing Lacazette, and Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer in early July - followed by Manchester United, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Southampton (four signings each).

Numbers of departure

In terms of outgoings, Chelsea offloaded the equivalent of four teams, with 43 players leaving Stamford Bridge - of which 29 have sought experience elsewhere on loan.

Manchester City (36 departures), Everton (28), Swansea (24), Arsenal (22), Burnley, Liverpool (both 21) and Newcastle (20) also parted company with players in abundance, on a temporary or permanent b
