Premier League clubs paid out a ridiculous £260.6million on agents fees in 12 months from February 1 to January 2019, with Liverpool top of the pile.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were the biggest spenders by some way – paying £17million more than any other club after the arrivals of Alisson, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita in the summer transfer window.
The Reds forked out a staggering £43.8million to agents for their quartet of new arrivals
Chelsea spent the second most on agents fees, parting with £26.9million in the summer to get the likes of Kepa Arrizabalaga, Gonazlo Higuain and Christian Pulisic on board.
Manchester City were third with £24.1million, while Manchester United spent £20.8million on new recruits such as Fred and Diogo Dalot.
Everton spent the fifth most, paying out £19.1million on players this summer, with Tottenham spending just over £11million despite not signing a player in the last two transfer windows.
