From Newcastle kick-starting their new project to shoot for the stars in the coming seasons, to Aston Villa and Liverpool further completing their squads with “big-money” transfers, there is a lot to talk about regarding the most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022. So without further ado, here is everything you need to know about the new arrivals whose transfers have sent their clubs some hefty bills.

Wout Weghorst

  • Transfer: VfL Wolfsburg - Burnley

  • Transfer fee: €20M

Burnley

are currently sitting at the depths of the Premier League table with 14 points in their first 20 league games. Even though they have a mountain to climb in order to get themselves out of the relegation zone, it might come a bit easier knowing that they are not that far behind the others teams in the league. Of course to do that, one will certainly have to score a lot of goals. And that is why the English side have turned to Wout Weghorst to deliver what they have lacked so far in the season.

It seems that Burnley have put all their eggs in one basket as they hope to turn the tides in their favor once again. But who is this new striker and why did he get to be amongst the

most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022

? Weghorst is a 29-year-old Dutch center-forward, who began his professional career at FC Emmen and rose to prominence after making his move to AZ Alkmaar.

He signed for

Wolfsburg

for €10 million in 2018 and went on to make a total of 144 appearances for the Bundesliga side, during which he managed to score a total of 70 goals, while providing 29 assists in the process. These stats proved to be satisfactory for Burnley as they paid €20 million to acquire his services. Weghorst has already managed to make an impact in his first two appearances for the English side as he has provided an assist to make a statement.

Surely the club’s supporters hope to see their new arrival, who is on the list of most expensive Premier League transfers of winter 2022, live up to the billing without taking some time to adapt to the new environment.

Dan Burn

  • Transfer: Brighton – Newcastle

  • Transfer fee: €15M

Ever since

Newcastle United

announced that they were acquired by their new owners, everyone has been excited to see when the top-money signings are going to start and which world-class players are going to join the prospective top club in Europe. While Newcastle are currently struggling to find their feet in the English top-flight and have barely made it out of the relegation zone, their future is certainly bright with all the money that has been injected into their finances.

Even now, they have already started to make their presence known by signing several of the players who are amongst the

most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022

. One of their new arrivals is Dan Burn, who has joined the English side from Brighton & Hove Albion for €15 million. The 29-year-old center-back’s actual market value is estimated to be around €4 million, which shows how much profit Brighton have made with his sale.

Burn has played for several English teams throughout his career, making more than 360 appearances across all competitions since making his professional debut in the 2009-10 season. Burn is yet to make an appearance for Newcastle. Being one of the 2022 Premier League winter transfer window most expensive signings, we will have to wait and see how he fares in the coming months. With Newcastle’s recent defensive shortcomings, Burn’s arrival is certainly a welcome one and everything is up for grabs for the Englishman.

Kieran Trippier

  • Transfer: Atletico Madrid – Newcastle

  • Transfer fee: €15M

You will be hearing a lot from Newcastle today as they have spent quite a lot to lift themselves further up the league table. Next on the list of 2

022 Premier League winter transfer window most expensive signings

is Kieran Trippier, who has joined Newcastle from

Altetico Madrid

for €15 million.

It isn’t Trippier’s first time in the English top-flight as he used to play for clubs such as Burnley and Tottenham, before making his move to La Liga in the summer of 2019. Despite his shortcomings in the top tier of Spanish football, Trippier is still worth an investment as he can deliver a strong performance.

Of course that does not mean that the Englishman was not good enough in La Liga as he was certainly a welcome addition to Diego Simeone’s squad. He made a total of 86 appearances for Los Rojiblancos and managed to provide a total of 11 assists in the process. These stats are surely impressive for a more defensive-minded left-back. Trippier has already managed to make an impact in his first games for Newcastle by scoring his first goal for the club.

Julian Alvarez

  • Transfer: River Plate – Man City

  • Transfer fee: €17M

Manchester City

are certainly a force to be reckoned with, considering their star-studded squad is already pushing the limits. It is quite unbelievable how many world-class players are currently gracing the pitch at the Etihad Stadium. But that does not mean that Pep Guardiola is going to stand idle while his current stars get older and there is no one else to replace them in the future. That is why the Cityzens have signed Julian Alvarez from River Plate for €17 million.

Even though Alvarez is one of the most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022, he is an investment for the future and won’t be getting any game time at Manchester City for the time being. With that in mind, the 22-year-old center-forward was sent back to his Argentinian club to spend the rest of the season on loan. The youngster is already an Argentina international and has managed to make a total of 5 international appearances so far.

Being one of the

Premier League winter 2022 most expensive signings

, Alvarez’s market value has skyrocketed to reach €23 million in the past few months and we are eager to see how he will develop his career in the future.

Rodrigo Bentancur

  • Transfer: Juventus – Tottenham

  • Transfer fee: €19M

Juventus

have spent a significant amount of money in the January transfer window and that is why they have had to finance their transfers one way or another. With that goal in mind, the Italians offloaded Rordigo Bentancur by selling him to

Tottenham

for €19 million. The 24-year-old Uruguayan’s actual market value is several million Euros above his transfer fee, but it used to be a lot more a couple of seasons ago.

Being one of the most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022, Bentancur is yet to make his league debut for Tottenham and fans are awaiting to see if he can help the Lilywhites push for a place in any of the next season’s European tournaments. Tottenham are currently seventh behind Arsenal and Manchester United.

But there is still time to lift themselves further up the league table. It might take some time for Bentancur to find his feet at his new club, but once he adapts to his new surroundings, he can certainly add more quality to his side’s performance.

Vitaliy Mykolenko

  • Transfer: Dynamo Kyiv – Everton

  • Transfer fee: €23.5M

Next on the list of

most expensive Premier League transfers of winter 2022

is Vitaliy Mykolenko, who has joined

Everton

from Dynamo Kyiv for a little less than €24 million. Mykolenko has risen up the ranks at Dynamo Kyiv as a product of the Ukrainian club’s youth academy. The 22-year-old left-back is one of the most promising defenders on the left flank and Everton fans are certainly excited to see him grace the pitch at Goodison Park.

The Ukraine international made a total of 132 appearances for his former side before joining the Toffees. With Frank Lampard’s arrival as Everton’s new manager, things might be about to change at the club for the good. Everton are currently deep in trouble as they are too close to the relegation zone with four defeats in their last five games. Mykolenko, who has arrived as a replacement for the recently departed Lucas Digne, has already made his debut and got his first yellow card in the 283 minutes that he has played for Everton.

Chris Wood

  • Transfer: Burnley – Newcastle

  • Transfer fee: €30M

If you thought that you were not going to see Newcastle’s name on the list of Premier League winter 2022 most expensive signings, then think again as the English club are not done yet. They managed to sign Chris Wood from Burnley for a whopping fee of €30 million, despite the 30-year-old’s actual market value being around €6 million. Everyone knows that Newcastle are loaded now and everyone wants to get on the “Newcastle milking” bandwagon.

The center-forward did not have much of an impressive track record in the EPL this season when the Magpies came in knocking on Burnley’s door with a bag full of money. Wood has scored 161 goals in 473 appearances across all competitions throughout his career and can be a suitable addition to his side’s squad for the time being. We will have to wait and see if he can turn on his goal-scoring instincts in order to take Newcastle to a safe zone on the league table.

Lucas Digne

  • Transfer: Everton – Aston Villa

  • Transfer fee: €30M

Everyone praised Steven Gerrard and transfer policy of signing Lucas Digne from Everton for €30 million. While Everton are struggling to keep themselves above the relegation zone,

Aston Villa

are trying to achieve a higher spot in the top-half of the league table. Digne’s arrival at the club has definitely boosted their defensive and offensive force as the Frenchman is quite adept at running up and down the pitch to help in both situations.

The former Everton man has already managed to make an impact at his new club by providing an assist after only two games. While it is too soon to judge a book by its cover and one can’t say for sure if Digne was worth to be put amongst the most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022, the France international certainly has the potential to live up to the billing with quite impressive performances.

Bruno Guimaraes

  • Transfer: Olympique Lyon – Newcastle

  • Transfer fee: €42M

As if Newcastle hadn’t spent enough, they went on and spent yet another €42 million to sign Bruno Guimaraes from Olympique Lyon. The Brazilian initially joined the French side from Atletico Paranaense for €20 million in 2020 and went on to appear in a total of 71 games, scoring 3 goals and providing 8 assists in the process. The 24-year-old defensive midfielder has more than proven his skills in both attack and defense.

As an Olympic medalist, Guimaraes will be a great addition to Newcastle as he can be one of the main stars at the club for years to come. He has already managed make his debut in Newcastle’s 3-1 win over Everton. But the debut did not have much of a significance as he only got to play for a single minute. As one of the most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022, the Brazil international’s career will be watched closely by both the club’s supporters and other top clubs in Europe.

Luis Diaz

  • Transfer: FC Porto – Liverpool

  • Transfer fee: €45M

Newcastle’s signings list has finally come to an end and there is no new arrival left to be on the list of most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022. While the Magpies spent significant amounts of money to bring in several players in hopes of keeping the team in the English top-flight for the next season, it was Liverpool’s new arrival who managed to make it to the top of the most expensive Premier League signings of winter 2022 list. The Reds signed Luis Diaz from FC Porto for a staggering fee of €45 million.

While such a fee has become mainstream in recent years, it is still a hefty one. Jurgen Klopp has added to his already start-studded roster of forwards by signing the 25-year-old. The winger is quite a lethal one as he has scored 61 goals in his first 200 appearances throughout his career. Having made his debut for Liverpool in the FA Cup, we are yet to see how he will fare in the Premier League in the coming weeks.
