Out of the £780.1 million spent during the 2023 January transfer window, Chelsea were the highest spenders with an outlay of £319 million.
The Blues splashed out on Enzo Fernandez (£105million), Malo Gusto (£26.3million), Noni Madueke (£35million), Mykhailo Mudryk (£88million), Benoit Badiashile (£33.7million), Joao Felix (six-month loan) – £9.7million fee, Andrey Santos (£11million) and David Datro Fofana (£10million).
The likes of Santos, Fofana, and Madueke are long-term investments for the Blues, but the likes of Fernandez, Mudryk, Badiashile, and Felix will be expected to improve Chelsea immediately and help get their season back on track.
Meanwhile, other notable signings include Cody Gakpo to Liverpool, and Jorginho to Arsenal.
