Flashback: Top 3 Winter Transfer Signings Made By Arsenal Including Controversial Striker

There are few more satisfying feelings than defeating your old club, as Lukasz Fabianski can testify after playing a key role in Swansea's win over Arsenal. Deadline day alone saw total spending of £150m.

As this year's January transfer window is nearing its closure with just a couple of days remaining before the clubs can settle their transfer business, we take a look at the top 3 winter transfer signings of all time by some of Premier League heavyweights.

"Not for the first time during Jurgen Klopp's reign at Anfield, Liverpool look set to be in profit from player trading at the end of a transfer window and that is not what the fans want to see in this era of insane spending".

Gabon's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund for a club record of £56m on Wednesday's concluding day of business, with Olivier Giroud moving to Chelsea as part of a complicated transfer jigsaw.

Top premiership clubs have splashed the cash in the January transfer window, desperate to qualify for the top four, which guarantees entry into the lucrative Champions League. As Kate King reports, the Deloitte's survery suggests total Premier league spending for the season could top £1.9 billion.

He said: "International trade has flourished, with the highest ever January gross overseas outlay in Premier League history (£260m), but also the highest amount of January receipts from abroad (£185m), with names such as Coutinho and Costa leaving the United Kingdom and Laporte and Aubameyang arriving from abroad".

France defender Laporte was a £57m signing for Manchester City from Athletic Bilbao. The French global has a vast Premier League experience (where he netted 105 times in 253 outings) and earned a cult status among the Gunners fans during his five-and-a-half years realm. Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal are all vying against each other to ensure that they are not the ones to miss out on that all-important Champions League spot.

"The estimated 2017-18 net spend of £755 million (NZ$1.49b) represents 17 per cent of forecast 2017-18 Premier League revenue, in line with the average over the 15 years since the first transfer window in January 2003".
