The final numbers from the January transfer period are in and spending in Serie A was way down last month.
A report from Deloitte stated Italy’s top flight reported the steepest year-on-year decline in gross transfer spend, falling 84% from €185 million in January 2022 to €30 million in January 2023, the lowest spend by the league since 2006.
On the opposite end, the Premier League unsurprisingly outspent the rest of Europe’s “big five” leagues by a considerable margin. According to their report, the league spent €930 million last month—a record winter transfer window period.
As for the rest of Europe, spending totaled €125 million in Ligue 1, €70 million in the Bundesliga while La Liga spent €30 million.
