Not Man City or Man Utd, Arsenal is the club that splurges the most money in the summer transfer window of 2022. Meanwhile, Leicester City has yet to spend a dime to recruit players.
Last season, Arsenal lost the ticket to the Champions League very regretfully to Tottenham in the final rounds. That prompted the “Gunners” to spend money to recruit forces.

Quite surprising when they are the most powerful spending team in the summer transfer window of 2022 with 119 million pounds. Coach Arteta has brought in the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fabio Vieira, Marquinhos and Matt Turner.
It is worth mentioning that among Arsenal’s rookies, only goalkeeper Matt Turner is over 25 years old. The London club continues to develop a policy of rejuvenation, which was relatively successful last season. The average age of “Gunners” this season is only 24.7 (the youngest in the Premier League).
Second in terms of spending is Tottenham. This summer, coach Conte urged the team’s leadership to soon recruit players to assemble the squad soon. Therefore, the transfer of Spurs was done quite quickly. They spent £ 99 million to recruit a series of rookies such as Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Djed Spence, Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Clément Lenglet.
Man City and Leeds are ranked third with 98 million pounds. In particular, the “green” Man only recruited three contracts: Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips and Stefan Ortega. And Leeds strongly brought in a series of rookies such as Brenden Aaronson, Luis Sinisterra, Tyler Adams, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Darko Gyabi.
The amount of money Premier League clubs spend on the summer transfer market 2022 (data as of August 5).
Liverpool ranked 5th with 95 million pounds. £85m rookie Darwin Nunez is The Kop’s most notable signing. In addition, they also have two other players, Fábio Carvalho, Calvin Ramsay.
Chelsea have spent £85m so far to recruit Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chukwuemeka. However, the club’s transfer budget is still very much (£200 million). In the coming time, coach Tuchel will continue to look for new faces.
Man Utd also promises to explode this month. They have only spent £ 65 million (less than rookie Nottingham Forrest). Lisandro Martínez, Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen are three players brought in by coach Ten Hag so far.
In the opposite direction, Leicester City has not spent any money at the “summer market” 2022. In the opposite direction, they also only bid farewell to goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to Nice.
