Transfer window in numbers

Transfer window in numbers”

The pressure to secure potentially decisive deals at both ends of the table has never been greater and deadline day expenditure by Premier League clubs of £150 million is also a new January window record.

Premier League clubs spent £430 million pounds (NZ$829m) in the January transfer window to shatter the previous mark of £225 million (NZ$434m) set in 2011, said a report by the Sports Business Group at Deloitte.

Unfortunately for Tottenham, an honest to God game of football got in the way of their Deadline Day shenanigans (they beat Manchester United 2-0) but they still managed to bring in Lucas Moura from Paris St-Germain for £23 - which is to PSG what 20p is to you or me.

United are behind them in the second place and have strengthened their attack by adding Alexis Sanchez to their squad.

4 - Stoke and Watford made the most signings in the Premier League this month. He will be reunited at the Emirates Stadium with former Dortmund teammate Mkhitaryan.

That particular triangle saw Aubameyang sign on the dotted line in North London for a cool £56m; Giroud went across the city to Chelsea for £18m.

Back-to-back defeats to Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion raised questions over Liverpool's decision not to invest in a direct replacement for Coutinho but they bounced back to see off Huddersfield 3-0 in midweek and remain unbeaten in the league at Anfield this season.

When Arsene Wenger chose to boost his options in the left-back position in the winter of 2013 and he signed Nacho Monreal from Malaga for a fee of €10m, it was met with a lot of pessimism among the Arsenal faithful, largely due to his rather hefty price-tag and lack of experience in the Premier League.

But Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez, speaking after his side's 1-1 draw with Burnley on Wednesday, said: "He is a player who can fight with defenders, challenge and score goals".

But which clubs did the best business?

There was no official confirmation from Arsenal but Ozil posted a tweet with a picture of him signing photos with the message: "Had a busy day signing things".
