The only other current Lazio player on this list is Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who cost €18 million back in the summer of 2015. Considering that his estimated market value is around €100 million, his transfer was an incredible piece of business by the Roman club.

Topping the list is Argentinian forward Hernan Crespo, who cost €56.8 million from Parma in the summer of 2000. At the time, this deal broke the world transfer record.
