The Premier League is widely considered to be the biggest and most competitive league in the world, with arguably the biggest players in the world plying their trade for some of the top clubs in the world.

The Premier League clubs are currently dominating the footballing sphere in Europe and here, we take a look at the most expensive signing for each of the top six club in England's top-flight.

1. Manchester City - Jack Grealish - €117.5m

Manchester City splurged €117.5million in the summer of 2021 to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, thus making him the most expensive transfer of an English player in the history of the sport.

The 26-year-old for all his talent is yet to make a mark for the Cityzens, though he has still managed to score two goals and register three assists in all competitions this season.

Much is expected from the English midfielder and it will be interesting to see how his career progresses in the near future.

2. Manchester United - Paul Pogba - €105m

Much was expected from Paul Pogba following his then world record arrival in 2016 from Juventus, with Manchester United fans believing that he would make them title challengers.

The Frenchman has had a mixed time at Old Trafford, with his stint there plagued by inconsistencies, though he has already made 212 appearances for them.

3. Liverpool - Virgil van Dijk - €84.65m

Liverpool spent €84.65m to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in January 2018 and it is safe to say that the centre-back has been worth every penny as he has completely revolutionised the Reds defence and has become their most important player.

The Dutchman played a key role in Liverpool's recent Champions League and Premier League title wins and he will be looked to continue his form, if the Reds are to challenge for trophies this season.

4. Chelsea - Romelu Lukaku - €115m

Romelu Lukaku established himself as one of the best strikers in the world during his spell with Inter Milan and his performances led Chelsea to pay €115m for his services earlier this summer.

The Belgian scored in his first game on return but then suffered an injury, and it will be interesting to see whether he can lead the Blues to trophies come the end of the season.

5. Tottenham Hotspur - Tanguy Ndombele - €60m

Tottenham Hotspur are not known for spending big on players, but they decided to splurge €60m on Tanguy Ndombele in 2019, with many claiming that he has failed to live up to his price tag.

The Frenchman has looked brilliant at times, but his fitness has not been up to the mark and he still has a lot to do in order to win the trust of the fans.

6. Arsenal - Nicolas Pepe - €80m

Another big money arrival who has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League has been Nicolas Pepe, who is yet to display the form that made Arsenal pay Lille €80m for his services in 2019.

The 26-year-old has managed to score only 25 goals in 98 appearances, and he will need to step up if his club are to finish in the top four this season.
