Liverpool spends more than any other Premier League club on agent fees

Liverpool spent more than £ 30 million in agent fees last year, more than any other club in the Premier League.

Figures released by the Football Association revealed that the Reds disbursed £ 30.3 million in payments and transactions involving registered intermediaries.

While last year’s count was down from £ 43.8m, it still beats any of its main rivals, with Manchester City next at £ 29m and Manchester United spending £ 27.6m.

The numbers cover the period from February 1, 2019 to January 31, 2020, during which Liverpool signed five players: Sepp van den Berg for £ 1.3 million, Adrian and Andy Lonergan on free transfers, Takumi Minamino for £ 7.25 million and Harvey Elliott for a fee to be decided by a court.

The FA does not publish the individual fees paid to each agent in specific agreements.

Chelsea were the quarters that spent the most with £ 26.2 million, while at the bottom were Burnley with £ 3.9 million.

In total, Premier League clubs paid more than £ 263.4 million to agents, a smaller increase from the total of £ 260.7 million the previous year.
