Here’s a look at the five biggest signings for Premier League clubs in January


Simply put, clubs spent big on incoming players but also cut their cloth accordingly but sending others out on loan or selling to bring players in. Despite all of the crazy fees, there was plenty of sensible business out there.

Here are the key numbers behind a record-breaking January:

$596.7 million spent on new players in the Premier League
Premier League clubs received $386.8 million for selling players
That equals a net spend of $210.8 million between all 20 PL clubs, an average of $10.5 million per club
The previous record for the most money spent across the PL in a January window was back in the 2010-11 season when $319.8 million was dished out on new players
And here’s a look at the five biggest signings for Premier League clubs in January:

Virgil Van Dijk (Southampton to Liverpool) – $106.6 million
Aymeric Laporte (Athletic Bilbao to Man City) – $81 million
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal) – $79.6 million
Cenk Tosun (Besiktas to Everton) – $38.3 million
Lucas Moura (Paris Saint-Germain to Tottenham) – $32.6 million
