Let’s take a look into the five worst summer transfer signings from the Premier League clubs before the start of the season.

The 2018 summer transfer window for the Premier League has been a pretty short one compared to years past. With the window closing before the season kicks off, clubs had at least three weeks fewer than recent summers to get their players in.

Liverpool were by far the biggest spenders during the summer transfer window. They spent £168m reinforced the squad in numerous positions.

Chelsea were the second od the list, as they broke the record for the biggest fee paid for a goalkeeper after activating Kepa Arrizabalaga’s release clause of £71.6m.

Fulham were the surprise package in the transfer window, with a very busy Deadline Day, as they became the first promoted club to spend over £100m.

Manchester United spent £71m in total, while their local rivals City only £63m.

Tottenham did not sign any single player.
