In 2011, Spanish striker Fernando Torres moved to Chelsea from Liverpool on the final day of the transfer window for a reported fee of £50 million (R844 million), a deadline day record that was broken by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's £56 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal on Wednesday. 

The third most expensive deadline day deal was Mesut Ozil’s 2013 switch from Real Madrid to Arsenal for a reported figure of £42.5 million (R717 million).

Manchester United’s Anthony Martial signing for £36 million (R608 million) three years ago is the fourth biggest deadline day deal ever in England, followed by Andy Carroll’s surprising 2011 switch from Newcastle to Liverpool for £35 million (R591 million).

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Drinkwater’s moves at the start of the campaign to Liverpool and Chelsea respectively were reportedly worth the same as Carroll’s move, while David Luiz’s return to Stamford Bridge in 2016 came in at £34 million (R574 million).
