Liverpool's £11.75m summer signing Konstantinos Tsimikas had just 6 minutes of Premier League action last season, equating to £1.96m per minute he played!
Liverpool's £11.75m summer signing Konstantinos Tsimikas had just 6 minutes of Premier League action last season, equating to £1.96m per minute he played!

With the Premier League transfer window due to open for 12 weeks from June 9 until August 31, BettingOdds.com have taken a look at the most and least successful arrivals who debuted (or indeed returned or switched shirt colours) in the Premier League from the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

Liverpool’s purchase of Konstantinos Tsimikas from Olympiacos for £11.75m, with the defender collecting a  yearly salary of £3.12m, clearly tops the list of costliest transfer arrivals based on subsequent points the player helped earn. Tsimikas helped Jurgen Klopp’s side gain just 3 points, equating to a cost per point of £4.957m. The Greek left-back is not the only Red to make the list. Diogo Jota, who swapped Molineux for Merseyside when he was picked up by Liverpool from Wolves for £41m alongside a £4.7m yearly salary, helped his new team gain a respectable 38 points featuring across the season. However, at a cost per point of £1.202m, Jota settles into eighth place in the top 10 costliest transfer arrivals based on subsequent performances across the 2020/21 Premier League season.

The most economical acquisition proved to be Brighton & Hove Albion’s Joel Veltman, who arrived from Ajax at an expense of just £900,000. Taking into account the defender’s reported salary of £2m  and the 29 points the Seagulls have earned when Veltman has been in the side, he has cost Brighton a 2020/21 Premier League new arrival low of just £99,588 per point.

The results of the study can be found below and have been organised into the following 4 categories: 

  • Costliest Transfers Per Point Gained In the 2020/21 Premier League Season;
  • Least Costly Transfers Per Point Gained In the 2020/21 Premier League Season;
  • Largest Salaries Earned With Least Amount Of Premier League Minutes Played;
  • Largest Amount of Points Helped Acquired For Club (Match Participation Across Full Season).

All figures used are from the Premier League, SpotRac, and Salary Sport.  Please note, the costliest and least costly transfers have excluded free and loan signings, and each player considered must have competed across the full 2020/21 Premier League season.
