Deloitte's Sports Business Group has found that the total sum for last month's transfer fees exceeded the previous record set in January 2011 by £205m.
£56million - new Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's signature cost a club record and was the highest on deadline day.
Deloitte's Sports Business Group estimates spending by Premier League clubs in the 2017/18 season to be a record £1.9 billion, eclipsing last season's record of £1.4 billion.
"Not for the first time during Jurgen Klopp's reign at Anfield, Liverpool look set to be in profit from player trading at the end of a transfer window and that is not what the fans want to see in this era of insane spending".
A year ago, these same clubs collectively spent £40,000 - this year in a 662,400 per cent increase the total came to £265m.

Premier League clubs spent a record-breaking £430m in the January 2018 transfer window, according to new analysis, meaning nearly £2bn has changed hands during the course of the season.
Unusually for a winter window, almost two-thirds of the gross expenditure was by the top six while the bottom six accounted for about a fifth. Normally the relegation-threatened sides lead the way, hoping to spend their way out of trouble.
Pep Guardiola's call for referees to protect players from risky challenges fell on deaf ears as Kevin De Bruyne and Brahim Diaz escaped from lunges by James McLean and Matt Phillips in Wednesday's routine 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion as City moved 15 points clear at the top.
The bids for the latest Premier League TV rights deal are in and the carve up will be announced next week. The French worldwide has a vast Premier League experience (where he netted 105 times in 253 outings) and earned a cult status among the Gunners fans during his five-and-a-half years realm. With the tech giants expected to compete this time that should rise once again.
