It’s surprising to see Leicester spent so little on their team. Their net spending in the last two years has been next to nothing, meaning they have hardly strengthened their squad and it’s starting to reflect in their performances.

Leicester’s most expensive signings in the last five seasons have been Youri Tielemans(€45.00m) in 2019, Wesley Fofana(€35.00m) in 2020, and AyozePerez€33.40m) in 2019. Their most expensive departures during the same timeline were Harry Maguire(€87.00m) in 2019 and Wesley Fofana (€80.40m) in 2022.

16. Crystal Palace [€92.89m]

Apparently, all €80.89m buys you these days is a string of lower, mid-table Premier League finishes. They have made a mark in English football, but the question still remains whether they are moving in the forward direction, or backward direction, or whether they are just stagnant. To become more lethal, Palace needs to spend some money and look for a place in European competitions.

Their most expensive arrivals in the last five seasons have been Marc Guehi(€23.34m) in 2021 and Cheick Doucoure(€22.60m) in 2022.

15. Everton [€141.40m]

Their most expensive signings in the timeline have been Richarlison(€39.20m) in 2018, Amadou Onana(€35.00m) in 2022, and Alex Iwobi(€30.40m) in 2019.
