​Premier League clubs have smashed the ​summer transfer spending record after a huge number of deals ​happened right on the deadline day on Thursday night.


Following the transfer deadline on Thursday evening, all Premier League sides had spent a combined of £1.31bn on new players this summer. 


Let's take a look at which clubs have maintained the best balance between spending and earning in this particular window.

All 20 clubs saw a decent amount of action this summer as ​Arsenal led the way (£125.65m net) with ​Chelsea the biggest net gainers (£64.9m) ​following David Luiz's switch across London to the Gunners.

The record spend by the English top-flight clubs combined in one window still is £1.425bn, a sum which was spent in the summer of 2017.


Meanwhile, this window could mean that some clubs might incur some losses this season as Premier League is the only major league in Europe where the value of domestic TV rights has gone down for the upcoming campaign.
