• Across the other ‘big five’ top divisions of Europe, the next highest spending league after the English Premier League was Italy’s Serie A, with a gross spend of £405m, followed by Spain’s La Liga (£400m), the German Bundesliga (£290m) and Ligue 1 in France (£220m).
  • Serie A was incredibly busy this window but still produced less than half the spend of the Premier League.
