Mykhalo Mudryk is one of the most expensive players transferred this window. With his 22 years and lots of potential, he was bought by Chelsea for about €100,000,000. At the moment of writing, his new club is in tenth place, which is way too low for a club as Chelsea. This ranking might explain the aggression of Chelsea in this winter’s transfer window.
Mudryk is an interesting player. He showed what he could do in the Champions League with his former club Shakhtar Donetsk. He scored three goals and gave two assists in the six games he played for Shakhtar in the group stage. In the Premier Liga of Ukraine, he scored seven goals in twelve matches and gave six assists. He scored one goal and provided two assists in a 1-4 win over Red Bull Leipzig.
Will Mudryk be able to help Chelsea get back in the saddle?
Cody Gakpo (Player ID: 30062)
The third player that went to the Premier League in this list is Cody Gakpo. Liverpool is in ninth place at the time of writing. This is different from the level Liverpool wants to show.

At the World Cup, he scored three goals for the Netherlands. In the Eredivisie, he was the best player of PSV. He managed to give twelve assists and score nine goals. In the Europa League, he played five matches, scored three goals, and provided two assists.

Wout Weghorst (Player ID: 25317)
Wout Weghorst is not on this list because he is the most refined player in the world. But when he is playing, he works very hard, and he manages to score goals. If this 30 years-old striker is used right at Manchester United, he will be a force to be reckoned with.
Burnley sent Weghorst on loan to Besiktas to play in the Süper Lig. The thirty-year-old scored eight goals and gave four assists in sixteen matches. In the World Cup, he scored two goals for the Netherlands in the matchup versus Argentina in the quarter-finals. Will he be able to help United score more goals?

His net worth is estimated at €20,000,000. He seems to be the direct replacement for João Félix.
Noni Madueke (Player ID: 25217662)
Noni Madueke is one of the most surprising transfers this winter. Chelsea bought the rightwinger from PSV for €35,000,000, while his net worth is around €15,000,000.
The most interesting thing about this is that he only played five full matches for PSV since the 19/20 season.

Malo Gusto (Player ID: 37317367)
Malo Gusto is a nineteen-year-old right back that played for Olympique Lyon in the Ligue 1. Chelsea bought the player for around €30,000,000. It seems Chelsea is seeing a lot of potential in Gusto. He gave one assist as well. He played fifteen matches in the Ligue 1 this season.
As English clubs nearly doubled the previous January window record of €480m, set in 2018, Chelsea led the way, breaking the British transfer record with the €120 million signing of Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernández and the €100 million purchase of the Ukrainian winger Mykhailo Mudryk. Amazingly, Chelsea spent more on transfers overall than any clubs in the Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, and Ligue 1, as well as more than all Premier League clubs combined.
In this transfer window, Premier League clubs have spent nearly four times as much as clubs in the other “big five” leagues of Europe, allowing them to keep their key players while luring elite talent from abroad. The most recent numbers show that English football’s top-flight clubs spent a total of €3.1 billion during the 2022–23 season, above the €2.1 billion spent in 2017–18. This includes the €2.1 billion spent on players during the summer transfer window.
Many clubs in Europe have sold some of their most valued players to other leagues, especially the Premier League, in an effort to prioritise their financial viability. However, the top-flight in English football doesn’t show signs of slowing down.
