According to a related report, English football clubs, including the EPL, spent more than half of global transfer fees in the January transfer market.
The total transfer fee spent worldwide in January amounted to 1.57 billion dollars (approximately 2 trillion won). Of that, British clubs spent more than half, 890 million dollars (about 1.1 trillion won). The second place was France’s 130 million dollars (about 170 billion Korean won), but there was a big gap from the UK in first place.
A total of 4,387 transfers were completed in men’s football during the January transfer window, an all-time high and a 14.4% increase over the period prior to 2022. In women’s soccer, there were 341 transfers, setting the record for the most transfers ever. This is also an increase of 30.2% compared to January last year.
Chelsea FC, which started rebuilding under Todd Boley’s owner, had a large stake. Chelsea have spent $330 million (approximately 420 billion won) to sign seven adult players, including the acquisition of Enso Fernandes from SL Benfica for a record transfer fee.
