Brighton's £13.7m five-year player sale profit compared to Norwich City, Watford & more

The 2021 summer transfer window was a real classic, with a number of top quality international stars including the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo making their way back to the Premier League.

While Brighton weren't able to sign the big-money striker fans had hoped for, the Seagulls still had a decent transfer window, bringing in the likes of Enock Mwepu, Marc Cucurella and Abdallah Sima.

One real area of interest in modern football is how well clubs manage to secure an eventual profit from players they buy, with the wildly inflated market meaning a player could be bought for a bargain fee one season and flogged for big money the next.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, some players command multi-million pound fees, before winding down their contracts and leaving for nothing a few years later.

Now the window has closed, we've taken a look (via BettingOdds.com data) at how much profit on previously purchased players every Premier League club has made over the last five years. Sales of academy players are also factored into the figures.

This is how Brighton & Hove Albion's profit percentage on players sold ranks alongside all of their divisional rivals over the past half-decade of transfer activity.
