Ranking every Premier League club's summer transfer business

p1dhpluddqku61f741h8aksi93kb.jpg

The summer transfer window for Premier League clubs is now shut.

Almost £1.5 billion has been spent and it’s now time to concentrate on the football.

However before Liverpool and Norwich raise the curtain for the 2019/20 campaign, we’ve decided to cast our opinion over the business done this summer.

And we’ve decided to rank each Premier League club’s transfer business and create our very own league table.

We’ve taken into account not only new signings but also those that have kept star players.

1 | Arsenal | Net spend: £82.5m

IN

Nicolas Pepe (Lille) £72m
Gabriel Martinelli (Ituano) £6m
William Saliba (Saint-Etienne) £27m
Dani Ceballos (Real Madrid) Loan
Kieran Tierney (Celtic) £25m
David Luiz (Chelsea) £8m

Out

Alex Iwobi (Everton) £35m
Aaron Ramsey (Juventus) Free
Petr Cech (Retired)
Danny Welbeck (Released)
Stephan Lichtsteiner (Released)
David Ospina (Napoli) £3.1m
William Saliba (Saint-Etienne) Loan
Xavier Amaechi (Hamburg) £2.25m
Krtstian Bielik (Derby County) £9.5m
Takuma Asano (Partizan Belgrade)
Laurent Koscielny (Bordeaux) Undisclosed
Carl Jenkinson (Nottingham Forest) £2m
Dominic Thompson (Brentford) £3m
Eddie Nketiah (Leeds) loan

Verdict: Arsenal were supposed to have a modest transfer budget. They ended up smashing their club-record fee on Pepe. Tierney looks a steal and Luiz can add much-needed experience. Ceballos could be an astute signing too.

2 | Aston Villa | Net spend: £144.5m

IN

Tom Heaton (Burnley) £8m
Marvelous Nakamba (Club Bruges) £11m
Jota (Birmingham) £4m
Anwar El Ghazi (Lille) £8m
Wesley (Club Brugge) £22m
Kortney Hause (Wolves) £3m
Matt Targett (Southampton) £17m
Tyrone Mings (Bournemouth) £20m

Alan Hutton (Released)
Mile Jedinak (Released)
Ross McCormack (Released)
Micah Richards (Retired)
Glenn Whelan (Released)
Gary Gardner (Birmingham) Undisclosed

Verdict: Fulham spent a lot last summer and went down but Villa’s approach looks far more balanced. Should survive comfortably after heavy investment.

3 | Tottenham Hotspur | Net spend: £71.8m

IN

Jack Clarke (Leeds) £10m
Tanguy Ndombele (Lyon) £55m
Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham) £25m

Michel Vorm (Released)
Luke Amos (QPR) Loan
Jack Clarke (Leeds) Loan
Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid) £20m
Vincent Janssen (Monterrey) £5.6m
Cameron Carter-Vickers (Stoke) Loan

Verdict: A bit different to last year, where they didn't sign a single player. Ndombele is sensational. Clarke, Sessegnon and Lo Celso all have incredible potential.

4 | West Ham United | Net spend: £44.75m

IN

Roberto (Espanyol) Free
David Martin (Millwall) Free

Pedro Obiang (Sassuolo) £8m
Marcus Browne (Middlesbrough) Undisclosed 
Jordan Hugill (QPR) Loan
Reece Oxford (Augsburg) Undisclosed 
Andy Carroll (Newcastle) Free

Verdict: Fornals and Haller already look class. West Ham should be looking towards the top-six this season.

5 | Manchester City | Net spend: £76.7m

IN

Angelino (PSV Eindhoven) £5.3m
Rodri (Atletico Madrid) £62.8m
Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew) £7m
Joao Cancelo (Juventus) £60m

OUT

Vincent Kompany (Anderlecht) Free
Patrick Roberts (Norwich City) Loan
Pablo Mari (Flamengo) £1.5m

Aro Muric (Nottingham Forest) Loan
Philippe Sandler (Anderlecht) Loan
Fabian Delph (Everton) £8.5m
Douglas Luiz (Aston Villa) £16.8m
Danilo (Juventus) £34.2m

Verdict: How do you improve a side that earned 98 points last season? With a new defensive midfielder and a new full-back, it seems. No major outgoings either.

6 | Everton | Net spend: £58.5m

IN

Alex Iwobi (Arsenal) £35m
Jonas Lossl (Huddersfield Town) Free

Ademola Lookman (RB Leipzig) £18m
Idrissa Gueye (PSG) (£30m)
Joe Williams (Wigan Athletic) Undisclosed
James McCarthy (Crystal Palace) £3m
Matthew Pennington (Hull) Loan

Verdict: Gueye will be a big loss. But Everton have made some fantastic purchases. If they had signed Zaha, it would have been some summer at Goodison Park.

p1dhpn61m59gta631o8a1m6tcb3p.jpg

7 | Wolverhampton Wanderers | Net spend: £62m

IN

Raul Jimenez (Benfica) £34m
Leander Dendoncker (Anderlecht) £12m
Jesus Vallejo (Real Madrid) Loan
Patrick Cutrone (AC Milan) £16m 
Pedro Neto (Braga) £18m combined 
Bruno Jordao (Braga) £18m combined 

OUT

Kortney Hause (Aston Villa) £3m
Ivan Cavaleiro (Fulham) Loan

Verdict: Jimenez on a permanent deal is massive. Cutrone will give him competition. Neto and Jordao signed for the future.

8 | AFC Bournemouth | Net spend: £9.2m

IN

Arnaut Danjuma (Club Bruges) £13.7m‏

Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa) £20m
Connor Mahoney (Millwall) £1m
Lys Mousset (Sheffield United) £10m
Sam Surridge (Swansea) Loan
Harry Arter (Fulham) Loan

Verdict: Kept Ryan Fraser, Josh King and Callum Wilson. Decent looking signings in Danjuma and Billing, while Wilson on loan is a great deal. Lost Mings to Aston Villa.

p1dhpneqc712b1t2614m398rgdhv.jpg

9 | Brighton & Hove Albion | £58.51m

IN

Adam Webster (Bristol City) £20m

Jan Mlakar (QPR) Loan
Viktor Gyokeres (St Pauli) Loan
Percy Tau (Club Brugge) Loan
Markus Suttner (Fortuna Dusseldorf) Undisclosed
Matt Clarke (Derby County) Loan

Verdict: Signing Webster suggests a change to three at the back under Graham Potter. Trossard is an unknown quantity but Maupay should score goals. Kept hold of Dunk.

10 | Newcastle United | Net spend: £33.3m

IN

Jetro Willems (Eintracht Frankfurt) Loan

OUT

Mohamed Diame (Al Ahli) Free
Joselu (Alaves) £2m
Ayoze Perez (Leicester City) £30m
Joselu (Alaves) Undisclosed
Freddie Woodman (Swansea City) Loan

Verdict: It started off badly with Rafa Benitez leaving, it finished bizarrely with Andy Carroll signing. In between, a club-record fee was splashed on Joelinton. Not bad.

p1dhpnlaro1jh61f16kr0sjm2tv13.jpg

11 | Watford | Net spend: £27.3m

IN

Craig Dawson (West Brom) £5.5m
Danny Welbeck (Unattached) Free

Miguel Britos (Released)
Jerome Sinclair (Venlo) Loan
Ben Wilmot (Swansea City) Loan
Dodi Lukebakio (Hertha BSC) Undisclosed

Verdict: Club record fee on the very exciting Sarr. Kept hold of key players.

p1dhpnn5pg17ikd0e18f2fn61doa15.jpg

12 | Leicester City | Net spend: £11m

IN

James Justin (Luton Town) £6m
Ayoze Perez (Newcastle United) £30m
Youri Tielemans (Monaco) £40m

OUT

Harry Maguire (Man Utd) £80m
Shinji Okazaki (Released)
Danny Simpson (Released)

Verdict: Losing Maguire and not replacing him is a big blow. Perez and Tielemans are great signings, though.

p1dhpnq371v6c1aho1ab710oi56i17.jpg

13 | Southampton | Net spend: £24m

IN

Moussa Djenepo (Standard Liege) £14m
Che Adams (Birmingham City) £15m
Danny Ings (Liverpool) £20m

OUT

Steven Davis (Rangers) Free
Matt Targett (Aston Villa) £17m
Jordie Clasie (AZ Alkmaar) Loan
Charlie Austin (West Brom) £4m

Verdict: Adams and Ings will hope to score the goals Southampton were lacking last season. Should be enough.

p1dhpnr87q1rov5ta7c4li3kl19.jpg

14 | Crystal Palace | Net spend: £39m (PROFIT)

IN

Stephen Henderson (Nottingham Forest) Free
Jordan Ayew (Swansea City) £2.5m
Gary Cahill (Unattached) Free
James McCarthy (Everton) £3m
Victor Camarasa (Real Betis) Loan

OUT

Jason Puncheon (Released)
Julian Speroni (Released)
Bakary Sako (Denizlispor) Free
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Man Utd) £50m

Verdict: Somehow managed to keep hold of Wilfried Zaha. Lost Wan-Bissaka, though. Camarasa could be a decent acquisition but little to get excited about.

p1dhpnsjbi1llc11cn1jdh1o08j71b.jpg

15 | Sheffield United | Net spend: £43m

IN

Oli McBurnie (Swansea) £17.5m
Luke Freeman (QPR) £5m
Phil Jagielka (Everton) Free
Callum Robinson (Preston) £7m
Ravel Morrison (Ostersund) Free
Lys Mousset (Bournemouth) £10m
Dean Henderson (Manchester United) Loan
Ben Osborn (Nottingham Forest) Undisclosed

OUT

Conor Washington (Hearts) Free
Ched Evans (Fleetwood Town) Undisclosed

Verdict: A lot of money spent on fairly inexperienced Premier League players. The re-signing of Phil Jagielka could be vital.

p1dhpntkor1qs31cvj1rb31o5hug31d.jpg

16 | Manchester United | Net spend: £74m

IN

Harry Maguire (Leicester) £80m
Daniel James (Swansea) £15m
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Crystal Palace) £50m

OUT

p1dhpo03bc4ds17961t7hteu1ha11f.jpg

OUT

Alberto Moreno (Villarreal) Free
Daniel Sturridge (Released)
Sheyi Ojo (Rangers) Loan
Marko Grujic (Hertha BSC) Loan
Danny Ings (Southampton) £20m 
Kamil Grabara (Huddersfield Town) Loan
Ben Woodburn (Oxford United) Loan
Simon Mignolet (Club Brugge) £6m
Harry Wilson (AFC Bournemouth) Loan
Nathaniel Phillips (Stuttgart) Loan 

Verdict: The squad that won 97 points last season and are European champions are all still together. Fans would have liked a signing or two but the most important thing is that Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are still at Anfield.

p1dhpo1g7u13937l1ns1fn21uff1h.jpg

18 | Chelsea | Net spend: £173.2m (PROFIT)

IN

Lewis Baker (Fortuna Dusseldorf) Loan
Ethan Ampadu (RB Leipzig) Loan
Matt Miazga (Reading) Loan
Kasey Palmer (Bristol City) Undisclosed
Dujon Sterling (Wigan Athletic) Loan

Verdict: Not bad considering the transfer ban. Christian Pulisic was wrapped in January and they did well to sign Kovacic permanently. Couldn’t keep hold of Hazard, though.

Danny Drinkwater (Chelsea) Loan
