In a few months, the summer transfer window will open, and many European clubs will be eager to add to their squad depth ahead of the 2022/23 season.
The world’s most expensive goalkeeper is currently a Chelsea bench warmer. Kepa Arrizabalaga has only appeared in four Premier League games this season, totaling 15 appearances.
Chelsea could sell Kepa if the proper offer comes in, as this would allow them to recoup some of the money they invested in him.
The most expensive signings in the world for each position.
Defenders: M. De Ligt, H. Maguire, L. Hernandez and J. Cancelo.
Goalkeeper: K. Arrizabalaga.
Midfielders: P. Pogba, F. De Jong and P. Coutinho.
Forwards: Neymar, O. Dembele and K. Mbappe.
On the other hand, the attacking combo of Neymar Junior and Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain is among the world’s most expensive players. This season, both players have made waves in Ligue 1.
Neymar Junior has 17 goal contributions in 24 games for the French giants this season, while Kylian Mbappe is the club’s leading scorer and assist maker. Both players cost PSG a total of 402 million euros, which is more than the four defenders on the list combined.
Paul Pogba of Manchester United and Philippe Coutinho of Barcelona are two of the world’s most expensive midfielders.
Since his return from injury, Pogba has struggled to make an impression on the Manchester United team, whilst Phillipe Coutinho, who is presently on loan at Aston Villa, has scored seven goals in twelve Premier League outings under Gerard’s tutelage.
However, Manchester United have lost some critical points this season due to Harry Maguire, the most expensive central defender in the Premier League at the time.
He has contributed to Manchester United’s lack of clean sheets this season. Joao Cancelo, one of the most expensive defenders in the world, has been a big help to his team this season.
