Premier League clubs spent a whooping £155 million on transfer deadline day alone, taking the total amount spent over the window to well over £1.165 billion.
Last year’s summer spending by Premier League clubs was a record at £870 m which was well shattered this year, and Premier League clubs have benefited from the £5.1 billion record television deal which took effect this season.
The day was full of drama with clubs battling each other for players up until the final minutes of the window.
The biggest shock of transfer deadline day is Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere, opting to join Bournemouth on loan for the season. Crystal Palace, Roma and Milan were all interested in the 24 year old.
The most intriguing story of the night involved Tottenham equaling their transfer record, signing Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle for £30 million pounds.
Sissoko had looked to have completed a move to join Everton on deadline day after the two clubs agreed on a fee.
Tottenham, who originally had a bid for the player rejected, swooped in and matched the amount Everton had agreed on with Newcastle in the final hour of transfer deadline day.
Tottenham also added winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou from Marseille and 21yr old goalkeeper Pau lopez from Espanyol as they aim to build on their top 3 finish from last season.
Chelsea Football Club re-signed star defender David Luiz from PSG for £34 million. Spanish defender Marcus Alonso also joined the club on a five year deal from Fiorentina.
