How much each Premier League club spent and made during summer 2020 transfer window, as Chelsea, Everton and Arsenal spend big
The transfer window closed on Monday night at the slightly later date of October 5.
The coronavirus pandemic saw a delay to the start of the 2020/21 season and with that came a change in date to the window.

Kai Havertz was the most expensive player, costing Chelsea £71million as Frank Lampard made a blitz on the transfer market.

Arsenal: Spent £77.7m, Sold £20m
It was looking like a frugal transfer window for the Gunners with their main outlay coming in the shape of defender Gabriel, who cost £27m.
However, the deadline day signing of Thomas Partey for his £45m release clause pumped their total spent to nearly £80m.
There have also been some wily signings by Mikel Areta with Willian joining on a free transfer from rivals Chelsea.
The big departure was goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who joined Aston Villa for £20m.

It was an important window for manager Dean Smith having narrowly avoided Premier League relegation last season.
The first job was to keep Jack Grealish, which the club successfully did. Then strengthened all over the pitch and those signings seem to have already paid dividends.
They have a 100 per cent record after three games, with Emiliano Martinez (£20m from Arsenal) keeping two clean sheets and Ollie Watkins (£28m from Brentford) netting a hat-trick in their stunning 7-2 win over Liverpool.
Ollie Watkins scored a hat-trick against Liverpool Brighton: Spent £6.3m, Sold £16.5m
The Seagulls could have cashed in a lot more during the transfer window, rejecting several bids for Ben White, but have largely kept their squad together.
Adam Lallana was their marquee signing on a free transfer from Liverpool while the most they spent was £3.6m on Andi Zeqiri.

It’s been a quiet window for Sean Dyche’s side amid uncertainty surrounding the ownership of the club.
Dale Stephens was signed for £1m from Brighton but the main bit of business was to keep James Tarkowski amid interest from West Ham and Leicester.

Chelsea were the big spenders in the transfer window as manager Frank Lampard overhauled his squad with the signings of Kai Havertz (£71m), Timo Werner (£48m), Ben Chilwell (£45m), Hakim Ziyech (£36m) and Edouard Mendy (£22m).
Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr also joined on free transfers while the biggest fee received was the £50m from Atletico Madrid for Alvaro Morata.

Timo Werner signed for Chelsea this summer when it appeared Liverpool was his destination Crystal Palace: Spent £19.5m, Sold £18m
Eberechi Eze has been the big signing for Roy Hodgson’s side from QPR while Michy Batshuayi joined on loan from Chelsea.
The Eagles surprisingly received £18m from RB Leipzig for striker Alexander Sorloth, who struggled at Selhurst Park.
It has also been another transfer window in which Wilfried Zaha has not gone anywhere.
Eze joined the Eagles from QPR in a deal worth up to £19.5m earlier this summer Everton: Spent £87m, Sold £4m
The Toffees may have spent nearly £100m but it appears to have been value for money in the early stages of the season.
James Rodriguez looks like an absolute steal at just £20m while Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure have also made an instant impact.

Scott Parker has made good use of the loan market following his side’s promotion to the Premier League with Ademola Lookman, Mario Lemina, Alphonse Areola and Joachim Andersen joining.
The West London club did spent £10.5m on Anthony Knockaert from Brighton but they’ve been significantly more restrained in the transfer market this time around.

Rodrigo was made their club record signing when he joined for £28m from Valencia, and scored his first goal in their draw with Man City.
Defenders Robin Koch and Diego Llorente were signed after Marcelo Bielsa failed to get Ben White from Brighton.
Raphinha, the winger, then joined from Rennes on deadline day for a £17m fee.

Reds fans were getting restless with Kostas Tsimikas looking like Liverpool’s only summer signing – but everything changed one weekend in September.
On Friday September 18, they finally completed the signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich before acquiring Diogo Jota from Wolves the next day.
They’ve also made a tidy amount this window, selling Rhian Brewster, Dejan Lovren and Ki-Jana Hoever.

Defensive frailties cost City the title last season and they’ve addressed that this summer, spending big on Portuguese centre-back Ruben Dias and former Chelsea man Nathan Ake, who can play in the middle or as a full-back.
City waved goodbye to legend David Silva, who joined Real Sociedad on a free, while winger Leroy Sane moved to Bayern Munich.

The Red Devils left it super late to do most their business, signing Edinson Cavani (free), Amad Diallo (£19m), Alex Telles (£18m) and Facundo Pellistri (£10m) on deadline day. They also spent £40m on bringing midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax earlier in the window.
United have finally managed to shake Alexis Sanchez, although it’s not clear what Inter Milan paid to sign him on a permanent deal. The Red Devils did bank £13.6m on deadline day by selling Chris Smalling.

It was a busy deadline day for Man United Newcastle: Spent £34.88m, Sold £248k
Some smart acquisitions by the Magpies, who got all their business done efficiently. Former Bournemouth forwards Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser are settling in well, while left-back Jamal Lewis joined from relegated Norwich.
Not really any notable outgoings other that Jack Colback to Nottingham Forest on a free.
Wilson and Fraser have improved Newcastle’s attacking options hugely Sheffield United: Spent £50.58m, Sold £0
The Blades won the race to sign the highly rated Rhian Brewster last week but it’s a risky ploy to fork out £23m for a player who’s yet to make an appearance in the Premier League. Sheffield United have only scored once this season though so it could be a risk worth taking.
They’ve also recruited at the other end of the pitch, Aaron Ramsdale arriving from Bournemouth, while Wes Foderingham has come in and Ethan Ampadu has signed on loan from Chelsea.
There have been lots of departures from Bramall Lane, including Callum Robinson – who’s joined West Brom in a swap deal for Oliver Burke – while Luke Freeman has gone to Forest on loan.
Brewster was tipped for greatness at Liverpool but is now at Sheffield United Southampton: Spent £36.27m, Sold £22.77m
Four players have come in at St Mary’s, including Ghanaian centre-back Mohammed Salisu and French midfielder Ibrahima Diallo. Kyle Walker-Peters has also joined from Tottenham permanently following a successful loan deal last season.
Late on deadline day, they also completed the signing of Theo Walcott on loan for the remainder of the season.
However, Saints lost midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to Spurs, while Cedric Soares made his loan move to Arsenal permanent. Southampton have also said goodbye to the likes of Mohamed Elyounoussi, Maya Yoshida and Harrison Reed.
Hojbjerg and Walker-Peters went opposite directions at the same time but the deals were separate Tottenham: Spent £59.76m, Sold £11.97m
There was one pretty big deal at Spurs as Gareth Bale made a sensational return seven years after he went to Real Madrid for a then world-record fee.
Jose Mourinho has made other smart investments including the aforementioned Hojbjerg, plus full-backs Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty and finally recruiting a back-up striker in Carlos Vinicius. Joe Hart also joined on a free to be Hugo Lloris’ understudy.
As previously mentioned, Walker-Peters has gone to Southampton, while a number of Spurs’ academy stars, including Troy Parrott and Oliver Skipp have gone on loan to gain valuable experience. Ryan Sessegnon completed a loan move to Hoffenheim on deadline day.

As well as Callum Robinson, Albion made a number of eye-catching signings in attack, including Matheus Pereira following a positive loan spell last season and Grady Diangana, much to the dismay of West Ham fans.
There’s Chelsea interest at the Hawthorns with Branislav Ivanovic joining on a free, while Conor Gallagher has signed a season-long loan deal. Not too many high-profile outgoings apart from Burke but they got Robinson for that.

The Diangana saga left West Ham hugely divided as the season started but at least they’ve kept hold of Declan Rice, despite huge interest from Chelsea.
Just the two signings for West Ham, both of them Czech: Tomas Soucek made his loan move permanent, while his former Slavia Prague teammate, Vladimir Coufal, arrived last week.
West Ham’s other main departures include Jordan Hugill, Jeremy Ngakia and Jack Wilshere, who had his contract terminated on deadline day.
Even West Ham captain Mark Noble spoke publicly of his sadness at seeing Diangana leave Wolves: Spent £73.62m, Sold £71.28m
It’s been very busy at Molineux this summer, with Wolves spending and making a lot of money. Their main outgoings were Jota to Liverpool, Matt Doherty to Tottenham and Helder Costa to Leeds.
They used those funds to fork out £35m on Fabio Silva, who’s been described as a ‘generational talent’, while defenders Marcal, Nelson Semedo and Hoever have also come in.
Fabio Silva’s signing eclipses the previous record of £30m Wolves paid to sign Raul Jimenez
