10. Tottenham

Market value: £280m

Andre Villas-Boas' summer of spending appeared to herald a new era at White Hart Lane as the Portuguese broke Tottenham's transfer record three times with the acquisitions of Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela.

These three players cost a total of £75 million between them, but Villas-Boas' inability to exact the best out of them cost him his job only 16 matches into the Premier League season.
