The summer transfer window is still open with club’s doing all they can to add new players.
The likes of Chelsea and Napoli have been active in the market but going by the numbers revealed by transfermarkt, the likes of Barcelona seems to have spent more on fewer players.
But who are the top ten biggest spenders thus far in the window?
- 10. Aston Villa (£57.59m)
Having maintained their Premier League status last season, Villa is not taking any chances this time. The club that spent £140m last summer has already spent (£57.59m with the amount expected to increase once the arrival of Bertrand Traore is confirmed.
Players bought: Ollie Watkins (£27.72m, Brentford), Emi Martinez (£15.7m), Matty Cash (£14.18m, Nottingham Forest)
- 9. Leeds United (£61.38m)
Another Premier League club makes the top ten list. This amount has been ballooned by the arrival of 29-year-old Rodrigo from Valencia for a club-record fee.
Players bought: Rodrigo (£27m, Valencia), Helder Costa (£15,93m, Wolves), Robin Koch (£11.7m, SC Freiburg), Illan Meslier (£5.85m, FC Lorient), Joe Gelhardt (£900,000, Wigan)
- 8. Napoli (£63m)
A total of 12 players have left Napoli for fees as Gennaro Gattuso attempts a re-boot but all of those lovely eggs have been placed in the basket of Nigerian striker Osimhen.
