Cardiff broke the bank to land Medel, a robust midfielder, to help them avoid relegation in their first Premier League season back in 2013/14.

Despite making 35 appearances at the Cardiff City Stadium, Medel left the the Welsh club following their instant return to the Championship to join Inter Milan in a £10million deal.

Burnley – £15million: Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough, August 2018

Centre-back: Ben Gibson

Burnley fought off competition from Premier League clubs to sign Gibson.

Previously linked with Arsenal, the 25-year-old centre-back starred for Boro in their top-flight 2016/17 season, which ended in relegation.

And the Clarets matched the £15million fee they paid for Chris Wood in 2017 to bring Gibson to Turf Moor.

However, he has made just four Burnley appearances due to numerous injuries.

Newcastle – £17million: Michael Owen from Real Madrid, August 2005

Michael Owens career was hampered by injury

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez has often complained about a lack of money to spend – and its easy to see why.

Remarkably, its been more than 13 years since Newcastle broke their club-record transfer fee.

There were huge expectations for the high-profile arrival of Owen, but serious hamstring injuries impacted his Magpies career.

He joined Manchester United on a free transfer in 2009 after allowing his contract to run down at St James Park.

Brighton & Hove Albion – £17million: Alireza Jahanbakhsh from AZ Alkmaar, July 2018

Brighton broke their club-record transfer fee twice in the space of seven months after signing Jahanbakhsh.

The wingers transfer beat the fee they paid for striker Jurgen Locadia by £4million.

Jahanbakhsh is yet to score in 11 appearances for the Seagulls and has not played since November due to a hamstring injury.

Huddersfield Town – £17.5million: Terence Kongolo from Monaco, June 2018

Huddersfield signed the versatile defender on a permanent deal after a successful loan spell.

Kongolo helped the Terriers beat the drop last season and his performances persuaded boss David Wagner to fork out £17.5million.

The Dutchman, who can operate as a centre-half or left-back, has been a regular starter this term, making 18 appearances.

Wolves – £18million: Adama Traore from Middlesbrough, August 2018

The tricky winger struggled in the Premier League during spells with Middlesbrough and Aston Villa.

However, he was Boros star man last season, helping Tony Pulis side reach the Championship play-off semi-finals.

Traore has started just six Premier League games for Wolves and has been told to improve by his manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Watford – £18.5million: Andre Gray from Burnley, August 2017

Andre Gray has been in and out of Watfords starting XI

Andre Gray joined Watford for a club-record fee after his goals guided Burnley to safety in the 2016/17 season.

Despite beginning the current campaign in fine form, scoring in three of Watfords opening six league games, he has failed to establish himself as a regular starter due to form and injury.

Southampton – £19million: Guido Carrillo from Monaco, January 2018

12. Guido Carrillo (Monaco to Southampton) - £19.2million

Southampton almost spent £20million GuidoCarrillo

In the latter stages of his Southampton reign, Mauricio Pellegrino spent big bucks on Carrillo.

With Manolo Gabbiadini, Shane Long and Charlie Austin struggling for goals, Carrillo was seen as an answer to help the relegation-threatened club.

But the Argentine striker failed to score in 10 appearances and was loaned out to Spanish club Leganes at the end of the season.

Bournemouth – £25million: Jefferson Lerma from Levante, August 2018

Lerma earned his big-money move to the Premier League after impressing for Colombia at the 2018 World Cup.

The tenacious midfielder has been almost ever-present in Eddie Howes side this season, featuring 18 times.

However, discipline has been a problem for the 24-year-old. He has picked up nine yellow cards and is just one booking away from a two-match suspension.

Fulham – £27million: Jean Michael Seri from Nice, July 2018

Jean Michael Seri needs to step up for Fulham

Jean Michael Seri was Fulhams most expensive arrival last summer as the club spent over £100million on new players.

Seri was once heavily linked with a switch to Barcelona but is yet to show his true form in a Fulham shirt.

He has been in and out of Claudio Ranieris side as the Tinkerman aims to secure the Cottagers top-flight status.

Christian Benteke is the focal point of Crystal Palaces attack

Benteke was a hit in his debut season at Selhurst Park, netting 17 goals to finish as the clubs top scorer.

But its been downhill ever since.

The Belgian striker has scored just three times since the start of last season, which cost him a place in his countrys World Cup squad.

A knee injury has kept him out of action since October – and goal-shy Palace desperately need Benteke firing when he returns.

Leicester City – £29million: Islam Slimani from Sporting Lisbon, August 2016

Forward: Islam Slimani (Leicester City)

Islam Slimani is not wanted by Leicester

Slimani was brought in to provide competition to Jamie Vardy, who had just helped Leicester win the Premier League title.

And after scoring nine goals in his first season in England, Slimani was shipped out on loan to Newcastle, where he made just four appearances.

The 30-year-old is currently on loan at Fenerbahce – and his Leicester future looks bleak.

West Ham – £36million: Felipe Anderson from Lazio, August 2018

West Ham were crying out for creativity following a serious injury to Manuel Lanzini and they addressed the problem by signing Anderson.

The ex-Lazio playmaker has been involved in 10 league goals, scoring eight and assisting two this season.

He is showing why West Ham paid so much money for him last summer.

Tottenham – £42million: Davinson Sanchez from Ajax, August 2017

Sanchez has made 57 appearances since signing for Spurs.

Learning off two of the Premier Leagues best defenders in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, the 22-year-old is only going to get better.

Richarlison is on fire for Everton

Eyebrows were raised when Richarlison joined Everton for a club-record fee.

The wingers form dipped in the second half of last season after failing to score since November 2017.

But he is proving his critics wrong at Goodison Park – the Brazil attacker has found the net nine times in 19 league games.

He is pivotal to Evertons European hopes.

Arsenal – £56million: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, January 2018

Aubameyang was the last player signed by Arsene Wenger during his illustrious 22-year reign at Arsenal.

The hefty price tag beat the £45million that Arsenal paid for Alexandre Lacazette six months before.

Aubameyang has been prolific for the Gunners, scoring 26 goals in almost a year.

Manchester City – £60million: Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City, July 2018

Pep Guardiolas long pursuit of Mahrez finally paid off when he landed his number one transfer target last summer.

The City boss tried to sign the Algeria winger in the previous transfer window but failed with numerous bids.

Mahrez has been used sporadically by Guardiola, who has an array of attacking talent in Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane.

Chelsea – £71million: Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao, August 2018

Kepa became the worlds most expensive goalkeeper after signing a seven-year contract with Chelsea.

Most Chelsea fans view him as an upgrade on Thibaut Courtois, who has been in disastrous form since leaving Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid.

The worlds most expensive defender has transformed Liverpool into Premier League contenders.

Paul Pogba has been in terrific form since Jose Mourinhos sacking

After letting him leave for £1.5million in 2012, Manchester United re-signed Pogba for a then world-record fee four years later.

The Frenchman has had ups and downs since returning to Manchester, helping United win the Europa League and Carabao Cup in his first season back.

But a high-profile fallout with Jose Mourinho saw him dropped from the side earlier this season.

He has, though, regained his starting place and form under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
