Chelsea transfer spend

Chelsea coughed up nearly THREE TIMES more per point than any other Premier League side last season – with Brentford and Brighton best in market

The summer transfer window opens this week and a study conducted here at DAZN Bet shows who big winners and losers from last year’s spending spree.

  • Chelsea spent more than £12 million on every point they earned in the Premier League for the 2022/23 season
  • Relegated sides Leeds and Southampton also spent more than £4 million per point on transfer fees as they slipped to the Championship
  • Crystal Palace, Brighton and Brentford all spent less than £1 million per point on transfer fees – showing frugality pays off

Chelsea’s crazy year of spending under Todd Boehly saw them cough up £12.3 million for every point they gained in the Premier League last season.

As this summer’s transfer window opens this week, our analysis shows just who were the most efficient in the top flight over last season – with Chelsea way worse than the rest when it comes to value for money.

The Blues spent a combined £542million across the 2022 summer window and the 2023 January window, as Boehly splashed out money on a madcap spending spree which resulted in a 12th-place finish at the cost of £12,318,182 per point.

This is over £7 million per point more than any other top-flight club – with relegated Leeds and Southampton the next worse performing. Along with West Ham, the hapless pair spent more than £4 million per point on transfers.

Manchester City performed best of the major clubs when it came to efficiency and value for money, returning £1,485,393 per point in a year when they completed the Treble.

At the other end of the spectrum, Brentford spent less per point than any other side in the Premier League. The Bees returned  £784,746 per point, after splashing more than £46 million and earning 59 points. Only Crystal Palace and Brighton joined them in spending less than one million per point.
