The Ten Most Expensive Transfers in The EPL 2022-23 Summer Window

The summer transfer market curtains went down on September 1, and the Premier League witnessed several high-profile additions. Manchester United left it late to seal moves for Anthony, but fell in their quest for Barcelona’s midfielder Frankie de Jong. Chelsea were among the busiest on the transfer front, but Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest did most business.

Here are the top 10 transfers in the just concluded window:

  1. Anthony – Ajax to Manchester United (£85.6 million)

Finally, the long-awaited transfer finally happened and Anthony signed a five-year agreement with a one-year extension option with Manchester United, following his manager Erik Ten Hag.

In 134 club matches for Ajax and Sao Paulo, Antony has contributed 31 goals and 27 assists. He has 2 Eredivisie Championship titles under his belt, in addition to a gold medal at the 2020 Summer Olympics with Brazil.

  1. Wesley Fofana – Leicester City to Chelsea (£70 million)

The centre-back was acquired by Chelsea on a seven-year deal, making him the third-most expensive defender. The 21-year-old played a vital role in the defence for the Foxes when they defeated Chelsea to the FA Cup title at Wembley in his first season.

Fofana has made 37 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals for the Foxes in three seasons.

  1. Darwin Nunez – Benfica to Liverpool (£64.3 million)

Darwin Nunez joined Liverpool from Benfica for 64.5 million pounds, but add-ons could push the deal to £85 million. He could break Virgil Van Dijk’s £75 million transfer record as the club’s most expensive player.

Nunez follows Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coatesnas as the third Uruguayan to sign for Liverpool. The striker scored 26 goals for Benfica last season, 25 of which came from 24 starts, and has 11 appearances for Uruguay. He is one of the favourites to push Manchester City’s Erling Haaland to the Golden Boot award this season.

  1. Casemiro – Real Madrid to Manchester United ($60 million)

Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo were the first two Real Madrid players to join Manchester United, with Casemiro following in their footsteps. The Brazilian midfielder has won 5 UEFA Champions League titles with Madrid.

The Brazilian was announced as a Manchester United player before the match against Liverpool and will be expected to carry his Madrid winning mentality to Old Trafford.

Casemiro has made 63 appearances for the Selecao and has amassed 22 major achievements, including the Copa America.

  1. Alexander Isak – Real Sociedad to Newcastle United (£59 million)

The Swede, considered one of the most promising youngsters in Europe, was linked with various teams, including Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal..

However, he ultimately found himself at St. James Park as Eddie Howe tries to turn around Newcastle United. The striker, who has recorded 44 goals and six assists with Real Sociedad, made an instant impact, scoring against Liverpool after just 38 minutes.

  1. Marc Cucurella – Brighton and Hove Albion to Chelsea (£55 million)

Cucurella made the premier league aware of his presence with 38 solid appearances for Brighton Hove Albion last season.

Chelsea – who were trying to replace Marcos Alonso – saw the perfect chance to capture the kid following his performance during their win against Manchester United on the opening day of the EPL season.

He signed a six-year contract with the Blues, including £7 million in add-ons.

  1. Erling Haaland – Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City (£51.5 million)

Erling Haaland, the son of another Manchester City player Alfie Haaland, joined Man City from Dortmund, ending City’s search for a natural No. 9.

Although it took him some time to regain his form, he has ten goals in six Premier League games – a new record for the league, surpassing Mick Quinn and Sergio Aguero.

  1. Richarlison – Everton to Spurs (£50 million)

With 10 goals and five assists, the Brazilian was the Toffees’ most important striker last season. He was  Antonio Conte’s first choice because he wanted a striker to combine with Harry Kane.

His deal at Spurs could include £10 million in add-ons which would make him the club’s record signing. The striker won the Copa America in 2019 and has scored 48 goals in 177 Premier League games.

  1. Lisandro Martinez – Ajax to Manchester United ($48.3 million)

Lisandro Martinez was the first player from Ajax to follow Erik Ten Hag to Manchester United before the recent addition of Anthony. Martinez has taken no time to establish himself as one of the Premier League’s most dependable center-backs for the Red Devils.

The Argentine, who signed a five-year deal with an option to extend another year, contributed significantly to United’s win over Liverpool at Old Trafford and was equally instrumental when United beat league leaders Arsenal 3-1 to end the Gunners’ unbeaten run.

  1. Lucas Paqueta – Lyon to West Ham United (£51.3 million)

The attacking midfielder broke the previous Hammers record of Sebastian Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt (£45 million) to become the club’s most expensive signing.

After spending 18 months with AC Milan, Paqueta joined Lyon last season and made 35 Ligue 1 appearances, scoring nine goals and providing six assists.

He is David Moyes’s ninth acquisition of the season.
