Harry Maguire, Nicolas Pepe, Tanguy Ndombele, Rodri, Joelinton - Premier League clubs tried as hard as they could to break the spending record for a single transfer window last summer.
In the end, according to figures from Deloitte, they fell just short with the £1.41bn they splashed out on new signings £200m below 2017's record spend.
With the season currently on hold until at least 30 April because of the continued spread of coronavirus, but with a sizeable amount of the campaign having been played, we'd like you to pass judgement over the players who cost clubs an eye-watering amount?
