Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig — £51 million
Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal — £32 million
Axel Disasi from Monaco — €45 million
Chelsea is attempting to sign Kylian Mbappe on loan, a player who would never in a million years be linked to a Tottenham move. They are also negotiating with Juventus for Dusan Vlahovic, which would include Romelu Lukaku going the other way.
The Blues are also battling Arsenal to sign Raya from Brentford.
And the only reason Chelsea has confirmed just two transfers thus far is due to their ridiculously absurd £300 million expenditure on players in January. However, caution isn’t exactly what Chelsea is known for, so expect at least one more big-money signing.
Declan Rice from West Ham — £105 million
Kai Havertz from Chelsea — £64 million
Jurrien Timber from Ajax — £34 million
Arsenal is also still after Raya and potentially others.
Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta — £84 million
Mason Mount from Chelsea — £55 million
Andre Onana from Inter Milan — £45 million
Jonny Evans from Leicester — free
Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig — £60 million
Alex Mac Allister from Brighton — £36 million
Sandro Tonali from AC Milan — £55 million
Harvey Barnes from Leicester — £38 million
Yankuba Minteh from Odense BK — £7 million
It’s a story as old as time, and Tottenham can’t expect to compete atop the table when they are unwilling to spend what is required to keep pace with the aforementioned top-tier teams.
