Recently, the CIES football observatory put out a list of the most expensive signings in the history of the Premier League, here we show you the most important ones.

Transfer of Kai Havertz - Chelsea



A post shared by Kai Havertz (@kaihavertz29) on


The 21-year-old prodigy was acquired by Chelsea in this summer's transfer window for € 80 million. This window was historic for Chelsea, who spent 247 million euros to bring new talent to their team, almost the same as the entire Bundesliga invested (321 million).

Signing of Nicolas Pépé - Arsenal


Merci à tous pour vos messages #birthday #25years #thanksyouGod

Despite breaking Arsenal's transfer record by being acquired for 80 million euros, Pépé has not lived up to the expectations that have been set for him. The 25-year-old has only been able to show his talent on a few occasions since this historic signing in 2019. Was it worth acquiring him?

Signing of Virgil Van Djik - Liverpool


#UCLdraw tomorrow, last year was quite special. Who do you think we will get in our group this year?

Unlike Pépé, Van Djik has been worth his price in gold for Liverpool, who paid 84 million euros for him in 2017. He has established himself as one of the best players in the world, winning both the Champions and Premier League in back-to-back seasons for the Reds.

Signing of Paul Pogba - Manchester United


Happy to be back

Their participation has had marked ups and downs and has failed to produce results. This causes United fans to sweat a bit when they remember that in 2016 his team paid 110 million euros for Pogba.

Transfer of Kevin de Bruyne - Manchester City


The Manchester City player is invaluable to his team. Recently, he was revealed as one of the three nominees for best footballer of the 2019-2020 season by UEFA, but lost the title to Lewandowski. Still, his € 80 million transfer seems to have paid off.
