The summer transfer window has finally come to an end after nearly three months of filming and trading with millions spent on transfer fees from Premier League clubs.

Teams from the world’s richest league have once again dug into their pockets to sign some of the hottest talent in the game.

But how much money was spent in the summer transfer window exactly? Read on to find out.

How much money have Premier League clubs spent in the summer transfer window?

Premier League clubs have made over £1.7billion in net spend in this year’s transfer window, according to Transfermarkt.

This tops last season’s total of £1.44bn but remains just short of the £1.86bn spent by clubs in the 2017/18 season.

Premier League clubs signed over 140 players during the window, surpassing the number of players signed in the 2021, 2020 and 2019 summer windows.

Antony was the most expensive acquisition in the Premier League as the Brazilian winger worked with former manager Erik ten Hag at Manchester United.
