Chelsea top list of spenders as Premier League clubs splashed out £272 million on agents’ fees

Chelsea topped the list of Premier League clubs who paid money to agents in the year-long period to February 2021.

The FA has released figures covering new contracts and signings for the 12-month period, and Chelsea contributed £35 million on an aggregate spend of over £250m.

Figures revealed the Premier League teams paid out a total of £272m, with Chelsea dominating the spend.

The Blues went on a sizeable recruitment drive in the summer, with Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Edouard Mendy all arriving for sizeable fees, while the free-transfer deal for Thiago Silva also contributed to their £35m outlay.

Manchester City were second on the list – spending a shade over £30m – with Pep Guardiola’s side bringing in Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres on big money, while Manchester United shelled out a little under £30m.

In the period covered, West Brom spent the smallest amount – with the Baggies paying £4.2m to agents.
