#5 Aston Villa - € 125 million
Aston Villa got promoted to the Premier League after a gap of three years. Aston Villa played all 24 Premier League seasons before the 2016 relegation. The owners of the club seem to want the same run again under their manager Dean Smith. They have spent nearly € 125 million on signing new players.
Wesley Moraes is their costliest signing at € 25 million. With petty spendings on many other players, Aston Villa has strengthened their squad in almost all departments. Tyrone Mings, Douglas Luiz are few of the players from the other Premier League clubs who switched to the newly-promoted side.
