With Alexandre Lacazette joining Arsenal for a record fee, where does his fee rank in the highest paid by Premier League clubs?

Premier League spending has seen a dramatic increase in the last five years, with the record being smashed numerous times.

The money clubs are receiving from the new TV deal means they’re not only breaking Premier League records, but they’re own records as well.

With Lacazette joining Arsenal for £52m including add-ons, the Frenchman will become Arsenal’s new record signing, beating out the £42.5m spent on Mesut Ozil.

He would be the fourth most expensive player in Premier League history.

Paul Pogba’s move to Manchester United sits comfortably at the top as the most expensive deal at £89m.

Following him is the £59.7m deal that saw Angel di Maria join United from Real Madrid. We’ll be hoping that Lacazette does a bit better than di Maria did.

In third place is Kevin De Bruyne’s £55m move from Wolfsburg to Manchester City.

Lacazette’s will make Arsenal just the fourth club in Premier League history to break the £50m mark for a single player.
