LIVERPOOL are two wins away from winning the title – and no one will be able to claim they have paid their way to the top.
New statistics show Manchester City’s net spend over the last five years is nearly six times more than Liverpool’s.
The Reds pulled out of the race for Timo Werner as they were not prepared to trigger his £54million release clause.
As a result, he looks set to join Premier League rivals Chelsea on a five-year contract at the end of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s reluctance to splash the club’s cash on new players has led to them missing a number of top targets.
The net spend of Premier League clubs over the last five years has been ranked – and Liverpool are 14th.
Klopp’s side are one spot below Chelsea with a net spend of £107.58million.
At the top of the table is Manchester City – who are owned by billionaire Sheikh Mansour.
According to transfermarkt, City have a net spend of £601.98m.
In second place is neighbours United with £484.88m and Arsenal are in third with £267.88m.
Tottenham have not won a trophy since the 2008 Carling Cup when they beat Chelsea 2-1 in the final at Wembley.
The North London club are one spot lower than Liverpool with a net spend of £106.62m.
