The 2023 summer transfer window is open and will run until September 1, 2023. So far, there have been some big-money moves, Jude Bellingham’s £88m and Kai Havertz being the big names. More might be swept away in the flood before the window closes.

The transfer culture in football has changed dramatically in recent years. In the past, transfers were relatively rare and only happened between clubs of similar stature. However, in recent years, the transfer market has become much more fluid, with players moving between clubs of all levels, often for astronomical fees.

The increasing wealth of football clubs has been a key factor in the rise of the transfer culture. In the past, only few of the clubs could afford to spend big money on transfers. However, in recent years, the financial gap between clubs has widened.
