4. Tottenham - £65m spend

Tottenham have an excellent net spend record considering their ascent from mid-table finishers for most of the Premier League era to top four contenders since 2005/06 under Martin Jol.

Spurs have a relatively low record transfer fee compared to some of their more illustrious rivals, but haven't been afraid to splash the cash on the likes of David Bentley, Luka Modric, Darren Bent and Mous Dembele - all of whom cost over £15 million.

However chairman Daniel Levy knows how to extract the very best price out of his assets and secured high fees for Michael Carrick, Dimitar Berbatov and Luka Modric, all seemingly without impacting his side's chances of Champions League qualification.
