The English Premier League is the richest soccer league in the world, and in recent years, the EPL has taken its wealth to new levels, with even smaller clubs spending exorbitant fees on players.
Strikers make up a big portion of transfers as teams often are willing to throw huge wads of cash at exciting, sometimes unproven, goal scorers. But no matter the position, it's important to spend wisely.
Bringing in a player who can’t cut it in the Premier League can be devastating. One bad roster move could cost clubs a chance at trophies or cause them to be relegated to the second division.
These are the worst transfers in Premier League history.
Note: All fees are listed in English pounds (and current U.S. dollars), based on the best available information. Some fees are media estimates or unknown.
