No one would have thought that Arsenal will be in the race for a player rated so high; during the initial stages of the last summer transfer window. It was sensational news for the Gunners once the signing of Mesut Ozil was announced on the Arsenal official website. But another shocking thing to observe is that Ozil is in the most expensive Premier League 11.
Ozil at 42.5 million is the second most expensive player in the Premier League with Fernando Torres’ transfer leading the list.
Aguero at 38m, Fernandinho at 34m, Rio Ferdinand at 30m are some more transfers on the top of the list. And yes no one can forget arguably the flop of the Premier League in Robinho who was bought by Manchester City at 32m.
At £50m, Torres has to be regarded as the biggest flop, but at £35m, Carroll is probably the stupidest buy in the list. Carroll had only been playing in the Premier League for four months before Liverpool wasted their Torres money on the ungainly England striker!
