Big spenders The biggest transfers of last summer: Will 2019 beat spending from a year ago?

The merry-go-round of the transfer window is underway yet again with Premier League sides ready to get their chequebooks out.

A host of mega-money deals are already in the pipeline for the 2019 summer market and spending is expected to go through the roof once more.

Last summer saw the top-flight’s best go big with a string of high-profile deals being complete.

Some have proven their price-tag were well worth it while a few have completely flattered to deceive.

Here are the top ten priciest players of the 2018 transfer window and how they’ve faired this season.

LATEST TRANSFER NEWS Expensive Arsenal ‘line up bid’ for Wilfried Zaha, but Crystal Palace want double red devils revamp How Man United could look next season with Dybala, Koulibaly and Ziyech delay Why Paul Pogba is holding up Tottenham’s move for Lyon wonderkid Tanguy Ndombele silva lining Everton line up alternative targets for Chelsea and Barcelona stars hot rod Man City ‘make formal offer’ to £61m star who could be Fernandinho’s successor nearly done Griezmann’s lawyer to meet with Barcelona as £108m transfer nears completion Hope Man United boost as wonderkid De Ligt ‘open to Old Trafford move’ KANN DO Arsenal ‘make bid’ for Argentina international waiting game Dani Alves holds off penning new PSG deal as ‘he wants Premier League move’ nightmare on elm st Man United tracking Fenerbahce wonderkid – but City and Spurs also keen Ambitious Everton ‘very interested’ in 11-goal Premier League striker na na Man United ‘bid £35million for David de Gea replacement’

10). Yerry Mina (Barcelona to Everton) – £28m

Following a fine World Cup with Colombia, Mina moved to Goodison Park for big money.

He impressed when fit but missed so much of the season, that his arrival has been tinged with disappointment. Everton will hope for big things from him next term.

9). Felipe Anderson (Lazio to West Ham) – £35m

The Hammers’ record signing and one of their main highlights this season.

The Brazilian contributed ten goals and four assists and created a host of other chances to endear himself to the West Ham faithful.

8). Richarlison (Watford to Everton) – £38m

A haul of 14 goals made him Everton’s top scorer.

While some raised eyebrows over his price-tag, the 22-year-old proved doubters wrong and will now be looking to kick on after the summer break.

7). Fabinho (Monaco to Liverpool) – £40m

Took a long while to acclimatise to his new club but became a key figure of their midfield after Christmas.

Could yet crown a fine debut season in England with a Champions League winners medal.

6). Jorginho (Napoli to Chelsea) – £50m

His arrival saw N’Golo Kante’s role changed much to the bemusement of many.

An undoubtedly classy player but a touch underwhelming this season. Guiding the Blues to Europe League glory can certainly change that.

5). Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester United) – £52m

Big money but a big flop.

The Brazilian made only 13 Premier League starts and notched just one goal as United suffered their turbulent season. Will he survive their summer cull?

4). Naby Keita (RB Leipzig to Liverpool) – £54m

Keita signed a year earlier for the Reds and his long-awaited arrival ended up be somewhat disappointing.

A mix of injuries and poor form saw him in and out of Jurgen Klopp’s side and he’ll be hoping for a vast improvement next term.

3). Riyad Mahrez (Leicester to Manchester City) – £60m

City’s record signing had to settle for a bit-part role but still produced 24 goals and assists in all competitions.

He’s added plenty of silverware to his CV but could end this term feeling a little crestfallen.

2). Alisson (Roma to Liverpool) – £65m

Liverpool had to go out and buy a quality goalkeeper and that’s exactly what their money got.

The Brazilian kept a stunning 21 clean sheets and conceded just 22 goals in the Premier League. Could he do what Loris Karius couldn’t and help the Reds to Champions League ecstasy?

1). Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic Bilbao to Chelsea) – £72m

Chelsea’s record signing, the most expensive goalkeeper ever and one of the Premier League’s costly players.

He claimed 14 league clean sheets (only behind Alisson and Ederson) and could end up with a hugely successful debut season. But will forever be remembered for that shocking substitution refusal and defying Maurizio Sarri’s orders.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
