OK, but we also need to recognise that 100K is no longer the top salary bracket. The bigger clubs are paying up to 3X that for their top players. How much is van Dijk on ? Most middle-ranking clubs must have a few players on >100K.
Which also suggests the importance of smart recruitment of lesser known talents - Palace talk the talk, but are just not good enough at identification and recruitment.

What 9m for Gayle? Really?

Still, I don’t trust newspapers’ reporting of transfer fees. They’ll almost always report the figure that would be paid if all add-ons came to fruition.

I don’t even believe we’ve paid 9m for Sorloth and certainly not up front. But i think it’s important because it skews fans’ perceptions of players, which can have a knock-on effects.

It's stunning to see that people who follow Palace & football for 1000's of hours every year still have yet to work out that the club never disclose details of transfers nor wages, and neither do players, aside from the odd utter fool.

These figures are put out by player agents whose main interest is their income, which is percentage based. Their motivation is to drive inflation of transfers and wages generally, since the higher the (real) figures, the high their incomes.
