Quiz! Can you name the 60 most expensive English footballers EVER?

Aaron Wan-Bissaka England

It’s the English players who’ve commanded the highest individual transfer fees, from the £49m man to those who cost a ‘paltry’ £12m

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

By the end of this week, there's a very good chance Aaron Wan-Bissaka will sit atop this list. By the end of next week, Harry Maguire might have knocked him off. The week after that, who knows? Scott Dann might be top.

That's right: the summer transfer frenzy is just beginning. A bonanza of anti-bargains coming your way. A nation of dads grumbling that they remember when Trevor Francis become the first £1 million man – and even that was too much.

For now, though, here are the 60 most expensive English players of all time (although actually, it's a bit less than 60, because some of these players are so good – or at least so well-travelled – that they appear twice in this list).

The record currently stands at £49m. Small beer in today's market, although it does apparently earn us all the right to judge that player’s tattoos/car/house/sink/breakfast etc. Because really there’s nothing else in the world to get angry about.

Now, 10 minutes are on the clock to name these players based on their fee, purchasing club and position. Please tell us your score @FourFourTwo – we’ll retweet the best, if you don’t give answers away – and challenge some pals at the same time. Good luck!
