The FA have released details of the fees paid by every club in England to agents and intermediaries for the last year.
In total Arsenal paid out £11,181,730, the eighth largest amount in the Premier League, during the last two transfer windows. That covers signings such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Lucas Torreira, as well as a number of outgoings.
Premier League clubs spent a ridiculou £260,2664,118 on intermediaries in total.
The Telegraph reports that there’s a consensus that such spending needs to be curtailed and that the Premier League’s 20 shareholders will discuss the end of dual representation – when an agent can get their hands on cash at both ends of a deal.
It looks as though FIFA is joining forces with the clubs on this front with fees seemingly out of control.
