Newly crowned champions, Liverpool FC has topped the chart for the most money paid to player’s agents for the third consecutive year.
According to a chart released by the Football Association, no Premier League club paid more money to agents in bid to sign or complete the signing of players like Liverpool.
The chart which covers the 2019 summer and 2020 winter transfer windows shows that Liverpool FC spent £30.3 million on agents compared with nearly £44 m the previous year, but that is still the most of any top flight club.
The top four, as in the two previous years, comprises Liverpool, Manchester City (£29m), Manchester United (£27.6m) and Chelsea (£26.2m).
Everton (£16.9m) are the fifth biggest spenders on agents’ fees, according to the FA’s figures, with Arsenal (£13.6m), West Ham (£13.2m) and Tottenham (£12.5m) making up the top eight.
Burnley spent a fraction on player agents’ fees compared to the Premier League’s top four
Burnley (£3.9m) forked out the least of any top flight club, with Sheffield United (£4.3m) and Norwich (£4.9m) making up the bottom three.
Championship clubs paid out a combined £49.3m, slightly down on last year’s £50m, with Stoke (£5.6m) and Swansea (£5.2m) topping the list.
League One sides spent £3.9m, down from almost £6m with Sunderland accounting for nearly £1.4m, and League Two clubs gave agents £1.2m, a slight increase from just under £1million.
The total figures for all top five divisions in England is over £318 m on agent fees, which is nearly £80,000 down, a year ago.
