10 Most Expensive January Transfers So Far

With just two weeks left in this January window, here are the 10 most expensive transfers that have been confirmed and announced in Europe's top five leagues since the beginning of the month.

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 biggest deals of this transfer window so far, according to Transfermarkt.

Although more transfers are expected to be completed over the next two weeks, a few clubs have already been busy as they aim to strengthen their squads for the second half of the 2021/22 campaign.

Newly-rich Newcastle United managed to convince England international Kieran Trippier of their project as they snapped him up from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth €12 million (R211 million), making him only the eighth-costliest acquisition of the window to date.

Ahead of the 31-year-old on the list is 20-year-old Scottish fullback Nathan Patterson, who joined Everton from Rangers for a reported fee of €14 million (R246 million) two weeks ago.

The talented right-back was brought in by the recently fired Rafael Benitez, however, and will now have to impress whoever the Merseyside club replaces the sacked Spaniard with in the coming days.

France winger Jonathan Ikone features at sixth place after being lured to Italian side Fiorentina from Lille, while Lucas Digne's €30 million (R528 million) switch to Aston Villa is the third-biggest completed transfer in January.

At the top of the list is Barcelona's Ferran Torres, who left Manchester City at the beginning of the window, but how much did he cost the LaLiga giants? Click through the gallery above to find out!
