Tottenham has lost their last three matches in all competition since that famous win at Old Trafford. The pundits continue to claim that Harry Kane is looking tired. The forward has been scoring goals none stop for the last several years. He also never enjoyed a great summer because of the World Cup in Russia. The second reason why Spurs is struggling is because the team was not strengthened this summer. The squad is thin making it hard to rotate players. However, Mauricio Pochetino still has the sixth most expensive outfit in the Premier League. The cost of the current squad by transfer fee stands at £348.77 million.
5. Arsenal- £379.83 Million
Unai Emery needs to ask for more investment in January and summer transfer windows to strengthen his team. Arsenal lost the first two matches against Manchester City and Chelsea. The two sides are ahead of the Gunners when it comes to the value of the squad. The cost of the current squad by transfer fee stands at £379.83 million.
4. Chelsea- £597.26 Million
Chelsea is back to where the fans believe they belong. The Blues are top of the table with 5 wins out of five in Premier League. Maurizio Sarri could not have asked for a better start. His team is adapting quickly to his style. On Thursday night, Willian scored to earn his team a valuable win against PAOK in Greece. The Italian has a strong team assembled by Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte. He only needs to give them direction and tactics. The cost of the current squad by transfer fee stands at £597.26 million.
