The clubs from the English Premier League have not been so much money spent on new players in this transfer. Wesley Hoedt took the Tuesday before the old record was killed.
The defender exchanged Lazio for 15 million pounds (16.4 million euro) for Southampton. As a result, the total of this summer at 1.18 billion pounds (1.29 billion euro), which last year’s record surpassed.
The transfer market closes on 31 August. Clubs have less than a week the time to do business.
Especially in Manchester, there are large amounts of money spent this summer. Manchester City so far was for an amount of 244 million euros in new players. Manchester United is with 164 million euros a close second.

That Everton, with manager Ronald Koeman seriously the struggles with the big clubs in England, is evident from the pattern of expenditure of the club from Liverpool. With 147 million euro is Everton’s number three.
Doing so leaves Everton today as Chelsea (137 million), Arsenal (53), Liverpool (51) and Tottenham Hotspur (40).
Frank de Boer gave Crystal Palace only 9 million euros. Only Stoke City (7.7 million) is even more efficient this summer.
