There has been reports that big transfer fees will take a back seat due to the financial impact of the coronavirus recently.

The top spot in that list is held by Ivory Coast international Nicolas Pepe, who joined Arsenal from LOSC Lille in 2019 for a reported fee of €80 million.

Pepe's price tag smashed the previous record held by Algeria's Riyad Mahrez after his €67.8 million move from Leicester City to Manchester City in 2018 while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's €63.75 million move from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal in 2018 comes in third.

Partey could enter the list if he decides to leave Atletico Madrid in the next transfer window, with the player being valued between £45-£50million, according to reports in England.
