Premier League net spend 2022/23 season

Published: 9:50, 23 January 2023

Chelsea currently have the highest Premier League net spend of all clubs during the 2022-23 season.

During the 2022 summer transfer window, Premier League clubs spent £1.9billion – obliterating the previous record set in 2017 (£1.4bn).

Contributing to this, nine of the 20 Premier League clubs spent in excess of £100m on new players.

The winter transfer window opened on January 1, 2023, and activity hasn’t slowed down.

Chelsea continue to splash the cash with the £89million signing of Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk. However, the 22-year-old’s eight-and-a-half-year contract means that it equates to approximately £10m a year as far as FFP is concerned.

Below are the 20 Premier League clubs ranked in order of net spend…
