Liverpool fans try to get their heads around club’s net spend of £18m since 2014

The spending power of top football clubs has elevated significantly over the last few years, with some high-profile players now costing upwards of £100m.

In the last two transfer windows, the Merseyside outfit have splashed big figures on the likes of Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.

The Merseyside outfit spent around £38m on bringing Salah into the club from Roma, while The Telegraph reported that Van Dijk cost around £75m when he switched from Southampton in January.

The fee was staggering for a defender, but the Reds did receive a huge chunk of cash in that month due to the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian secured his desired move to Barcelona in the winter window after being pursued heavily by the Spanish giants in the summer.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds pocketed around £142m in the deal, which puts their recent transfer spending into perspective.

In fact, during a Sky Sports broadcast, Premier League clubs’ transfer spending was broken down and calculated from between 2014 to the current day.

A Liverpool fan posted the image on Reddit, which sparked a big discussion.
