The most active player on the transfer market in 2020 is undoubtedly Chelsea London. The Aristocrats have already spent 223 million and have signed a number of top performers. A very recent acquisition is Kai Havertz. The Blues paid Bayer €80m, one of the London club's record transfers. You can bet on football at Bet 22.

Chelsea over the past 20 years has become a full-fledged grand. With the arrival of Roman Abramovich, the club began to spend huge amounts on strengthening and continues to do so after parting with the Russian businessman. We collected a symbolic team from Chelsea's most expensive purchases, where there were both successful transfers and outright failures.

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga - €80,000,000

Transfer: from Athletic in the summer of 2018.

What in the end: became a meme and stuck to the bench.

Kepa's transfer is a risk that has not justified itself. After Thibaut Courtois left for Real Madrid in the summer of 2018, Chelsea urgently needed a new goalkeeper. The choice fell on Arrizabalaga, which many saw as the future successor of David de Gea. In the conditions of tight deadlines, I had to overpay - Chelsea activated a clause of € 80 million.

In England, Kepa failed. And if in the first two seasons the Spaniard was forgiven for scoring mistakes and continued to let out on the field, then his patience ran out. Chelsea bought Edouard Mendy and forgot about the goalkeeper problem. Now Kepa plays in minor tournaments and replaces a partner when he is injured. Now Arrizabalaga is 27 years old, but it is very difficult to imagine that he will restart his career at Chelsea.

10. Andriy Shevchenko ⟸ Milan, 43.88 million euros;

In tenth place is the transfer of Andriy Shevchenko. Fans recognized this transition as one of the most disastrous in the history of the club. In 2006, Shevchenko came from Milan as a superstar, but he showed far from stellar football: 77 matches, 23 goals, 11 assists.

9. Mateo Kovacic ⟸ Real Madrid, €45m

Next is Mateo Kovacic. In 2018, the Londoners rented the Real Madrid midfielder, and a year later they used the buyout option for 45 million. Kovacic is now an important cog in Frank Lampard's new team building.

8. Ben Chilwell ⟸ Leicester, €52m

Most recently, Chelsea signed an agreement with Ben Chilwell. The flank defender of Leicester cost the "aristocrats" 52 million euros. Chilwell is an England international and was one of Leicester's leaders. It is noteworthy that the premiere match in Chelsea will be the defender's 100th anniversary in the Premier League.

7. Timo Werner ⟸ RB Leipzig, €53m

Another fresh transfer is Timo Werner. The Leipzig and Germany player cost Chelsea 53 million euros. The club has high hopes for Werner and will build a new team around him. In four years with Leipzig, the striker scored 95 goals and provided 40 assists.

6. Jorginho ⟸ Napoli, €57m;

In sixth place is Jorginho. The Italian defensive midfielder moved to Foggy Albion two years ago from Napoli. The Neapolitans helped out for the transfer of 57 million euros. In the strongest league in the world, Jorginho did not get lost and gets a stable game practice. In total, the midfielder played 98 matches and scored 9 goals, which is more than in Napoli in four years.

5. Fernando Torres ⟸ Liverpool, 58.50 million euros;

Along with Shevchenko, the transition of Fernando Torres was recognized as one of the most disastrous. El Niño, who was just a god at Liverpool, suddenly lost his magic at Chelsea. Torres never managed to become the main one at Stamford Bridge, and in three and a half years he scored only 45 goals and gave 35 assists.

4. Christian Pulisic ⟸ Borussia D, 64 million euros;

Chelsea signed Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic last year. The American was called to replace Eden Hazard and so far he is doing brilliantly in this role. In his debut season, Pulisic's figures are as follows: 34 games, 11 goals, and 10 assists.

3. Alvaro Morata ⟸ Real Madrid, €66m

Alvaro Morata opens the top three. It can now be argued that the "aristocrats" have overpaid for the Spaniards. The issue price, let me remind you, is 66 million. But in 2017, Morata arrived in London as a rising star. In England, Alvaro spent two years, after which he moved to Atlético for 56 million euros.

2. Kai Havertz ⟸ Bayer Leverkusen, €80m

So, on September 4, 2020, Chelsea officially announced the transfer of Kai Havertz. The Bayer player cost the Blues 80 million euros. The contract was signed for five years. Havertz is a record sale in the history of the Leverkusen club and a repeat of Chelsea's transfer record.

1. Kepa Arrizabalaga ⟸ Athletic Bilbao, €80m;

Well, the transfer record belongs to Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Spaniard moved to Chelsea two years ago from Athletic Bilbao. In the beginning, the young keeper was a model of a reliable game. However, then problems with discipline began, as a result of which Kepa even lost his place in the starting lineup. Last season, the goalkeeper had a conflict with the head coach, which resulted in Lampard publicly saying that Chelsea needed a new goalkeeper.
