Transfer fees have inflated astronomically over the years with more and more money being pumped into the beautiful game.

#10 – TOTTENHAM
Squad Transfer Expenditure: £320m

Tottenham head up our top ten list with their current squad costing £320m, the lowest amount of the Premier League top six last season. The Lilywhites have benefitted from the likes of Harry Kane coming through their academy while Dele Alli cost just £5m from MK Dons.
