The Premier League looks very close to a record for the summer’s biggest-spending transfer window.
With three weeks to go until the transfer deadline day, Premier League bosses have already spent £1.22bn, and with more deals in the works, it is approaching the record £1.43bn paid in 2017 new players was donated.
There may be a global recession looming, but there is no evidence that the top league clubs are reining in their spending. Marc Cucurella became the fourth £60million signing of the summer last week when he moved from Brighton to Chelsea.

Everton are on the cusp of buying Lille midfielder Amadou Onana for around £34million, while Manchester United have not given up on signing Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona for a fee of around £40million.
Chelsea are also chasing Leicester defender Wesley Fofana, with the Foxes taking a staggering £85million.
