The window provided clubs with an opportune moment to either offload their deadwood players or strengthen their squads as they look to challenge for titles this season.

Unsurprisingly, the summer was marked with high spending, with Man City splashing £100m to land Jack Grealish in a British transfer record.

Chelsea and Man United are the other top clubs who did some decent business to land marquee signings.

While the Blues secured the signature of Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez, United moved with speed to intercept Cristiano Rinaldo's potential move to Man City to convince the winger to make a return to Old Trafford.

Ironically, despite being one of the EPL's biggest spenders, there has been little fanfare surrounding the Gunners' deals.

Man City, Chelsea top list of 15 highest spending clubs of the last decade

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Premier League club Manchester City have been named as the No.1 club with the most international transfer and highest spenders between the year 2011 and 2020,

In the previous decade, the Citizens who were earlier chasing a top-four finish became five-time Premier League winners and major Champions League contenders, having reached their first final in May.

Although recent successes of the club could be attributed to Pep Guardiola’s brilliant management style, there is no doubt that Manchester City have spent big to turn around their fortunes.

The current English champions spent more money than any other club in those 10 years, according to FIFA's official report on transfers from 2011-2020.

Behind Manchester City are Chelsea when it comes to the number of players sent out on loan over the ten-year period.
