The 10 Most Expensive 20/21 Transfers Already Confirmed

FC Barcelona and Chelsea are among the big spenders of the window so far, but which have been the costliest transfers? Here are the 10 most expensive deals, including one involving an African star.

Scroll through the gallery above to see the 10 most expensive transfers ahead of the 2020/21 season so far, according to Transfermarkt.

The Blues took their spending inn this window to more than 200 million (R3.9 billion) when they signed Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen.

The German wonderkid joined the Premier League side in a deal worth 80 million (R1.84 billion) plus another 20 million (R396 million) in add-ons. As a consequence, Havertz is the costliest player ahead of the new campaign so far.

The 21-year-old leaves Leverkusen having come through their academy before making his first-team debut in 2016.

Havertz, considered to be one of the brightest talents in European football, became Frank Lampard's sixth signing ahead of the new campaign.

The Chelsea signing is followed by new Juventus arrival Arthur Melo. The 24-year-old left FC Barcelona in a massive swap deal that saw Miralem Pjanic go the other way.

Arthur cost the Serie A giants 72 million (R1.4 billion), while Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen's 70 million (R1.39 billion) move from Lille to Napoli is the third-costliest deal of the window.
