Arsenal tops the list of the teams that spent the most in the summer and PSG ranks eighth

Surprisingly, PSG was not the club that spent the most during the transfer market and the title went to Arsenal, as the club that released the most money in the last transfer window.

The most surprising transfer window in recent years in European football is over. With no one else being able to sign players until January, it’s time to find out who the summer spending “champion” was. Also because it is difficult to take from Paris Saint-Germain the symbolic title of the “best market”.

After losing the Ligue 1 title to Lille, PSG did everything possible in search of reinforcements. And what reinforcements! The Parisian team closed a historic window, with Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos and other names desired throughout Europea, without having to shell out hundreds of millions of euros. In fact, the Parisian team occupies the eighth position in the list of the clubs that spent the most money in the transfer market.

Arsenal ranks first among the teams that spent the most in the Summer Market, disbursing 165.6 million euros. The most curious thing is that none of the names hired is a world star. Despite the sum of money they spent, the Gunners have started the Premier League season with three losses.

Clubs in England dominate the list of the biggest spenders. In addition to Arsenal, there are also Manchester United (who managed to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back), Manchester City and Chelsea, as well as the surprising Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and West Ham.

Germany’s RB Leipzig and José Mourinho’s Roma are also among the teams that spent millions of euros to strengthen their squad. Here’s how much each team spent and the players they hired.
