Every Premier League Club’s Most Expensive Player Sale
January can be a difficult market for buying and selling players, purely because clubs done’t want to let go of their best players midway through a season while a lot of managers want to do all they can to improve their current crop of players.
This January doesn’t’ seem to be much different, with two Premier League clubs in particular slapping huge price-tags on their most wanted players.
West Ham have told clubs in China it’ll cost at least £45million to prise Marko Arnautovic away from Stratford while Bournemouth have insisted it will take a bid of around £75m to convince them to sell Callum Wilson.
If they managed to get those fees then they’ll represent club record player sales for both sides. But what about the rest of the Premier League? What would it take for other clubs to break their current record player sale?
Surely most of these will be broken very, very soon…
20. Brighton – Leonardo Ulloa – £9.09m
The Argentina is perhaps more known for his time at Leicester but before then he was a force in front of goal for Brighton.
Arriving for just £2m from Almeria in January 2013, Ulloa netted 23 goals in 50 league appearances for the Seagulls before Leicester came calling and made Brighton a huge profit by signing him for just over £9m 18 months later.
