Premier League clubs have just three and a half weeks left to sign new players before the transfer window slams shut on September 1.

The clubs in England’s top flight have all been busy so far this summer, with a number of incomings and outgoings ahead of the new season.

Here, we take a look at the five most expensive signings by English clubs so far.

5. Lisandro Martinez – Ajax to Manchester United (£51.63 million)

Argentine defender Martinez followed Erik ten Hag from Amsterdam to Manchester over the summer, joining the likes of Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane among the Dutchman’s options in central defence. Martinez and Maguire cost more than £130 million combined.

4. Richarlison – Everton to Tottenham Hotspur (£52.2 million)

Richarlison has joined Spurs’ star-studded attack

Spurs have been one of the Premier League’s busiest sides so far this summer, landing six signings including Clement Lenglet, Yves Bissouma and Ivan Perisic. Richarlison was also recruited from the Toffees, and will be vying with the likes of Heung-Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski for a starting spot.

3. Erling Haaland – Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City (£54 million)

Haaland arrived in Manchester having scored 86 goals in 89 matches for former side Dortmund. The Norwegian made his competitive debut against Liverpool in the Community Shield, but failed to score and missed a glorious chance in the closing stages. The Norway international will fancy his chances of winning the golden boot this year.

2. Marc Cucurella – Brighton to Chelsea (£58.7 million)

Cucurella joined Chelsea on Friday

One of the more surprising transfers of the summer, Cucurella looked destined for Manchester City before Chelsea showed an interest. The Spaniard only spent one season with the Seagulls, but won both the players’ player and supporters’ player of the season awards. He will likely be used both at left wing-back and on the left of a back three by new manager Thomas Tuchel.

1. Darwin Nunez – Benfica to Liverpool (£67.5 million)

Nunez scored on his debut as Liverpool won the Community Shield

Like Haaland, Nunez also made his debut in the Community Shield, but the Uruguayan enjoyed a far more successful day, scoring the last of Liverpool’s three goals. The striker scored twice against Liverpool in last season’s Champions League, and looks certain to be towards the top of the goal scoring charts this term.
