Ranking the 20 Premier League teams by the market value of their squads: Liverpool above Man Utd…
The Premier League now boasts billions of pounds worth of talent – but which squad has the highest market value?
The likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have spent a lot of money in recent months in an attempt to build a star-studded squad that can compete for the league title.
But the Premier League has become very competitive as teams near the bottom of the table also have a lot of talented and highly-rated players on their books.
Using data from transfermarkt, we’ve ranked the 20 Premier League clubs in 2022/23 by the overall market value of their squads.
20. Bournemouth – €226.7m
19. Fulham – €245.5m
After winning promotion last season, Fulham have arguably been the biggest overachievers in the Premier League in 2022/23.
Despite the fact that their squad has the second-lowest market value, they are currently in seventh place and looking to qualify for Europe.
Alexsandr Mitrovic (€28m) and Joao Palhinha (€28m) are the only players in Marco Silva’s squad with a market value above €20m.
18. Leeds United – €295m
17. Brentford – €305.1m
16. Brighton – €308.6m
Brighton have lost some of their most valuable players in recent months, selling the likes of Yves Bissouma, Marc Cucurella and Leandro Trossard.
But they still have Alexis Mac Allister, who saw his market value increase to €45m after playing an integral role in Argentina’s World Cup victory.
Robert Sanchez also has a market value of €32m, making him the third most valuable goalkeeper in the Premier League after Alisson and Ederson.
The Seagulls rejected a €78m bid from Arsenal for Moises Caicedo in the January transfer window, although he is currently valued at just €38m on transfermarkt.

15. Crystal Palace – €309.2m
14. Nottingham Forest – €332.65m
Forest manager Steve Cooper has completed a major overhaul of their first-team squad, making 30 signings since they won promotion to the Premier League.
Morgan Gibbs-White and Danilo are two of those 30 signings and they are both valued at €25m, making them the most valuable players in the Forest squad.
Dean Henderson, who is on loan from Manchester United, is worth €22m while Brennan Johnson, Taiwo Awoniyi and Renan Lodi all have a market value of €20m.
13. Everton – €368.1m
12. Southampton – €387.5m
Southampton currently find themselves 19th in the table but eight Premier League teams have a squad with a smaller market value.
James Ward-Prowse has been Southampton’s standout performer in recent years, and the club captain currently has a market value of €35m.
Romeo Lavio, who joined the Saints from Manchester City in the summer, has a market value of €25m and is their joint-second most valuable player alongside Tino Livramento and Kyle Walker-Peters.

11. Wolves – €393.7m
10. Aston Villa – €445.8m
Villa showcased their ambition by appointing Unai Emery as their manager in November and they are slap bang in the middle of this list.
Douglas Luiz (€35m) is regarded as their most valuable player but he is closely followed by Ollie Watkins (€32m), John McGinn (€30m) and Diego Carlos (€30m).
Midfielder Phillipe Coutinho once had a market value of €150m during his time at Barcelona but has struggled for consistency at Villa Park and is now valued at just €18m.
9. Leicester City – €455.1m
8. West Ham – €471.5m
West Ham have been one of the biggest underachievers in the Premier League this season as their squad should be too good for a relegation battle.
No midfielder in the Premier League has a higher market value than Declan Rice, who is worth €80m and has been heavily linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
Fellow midfielders Tomas Soucek and Lucas Paqueta are both valued at €45m while Jarrod Bowen’s market value has increased to €42m after his impressive performances last season.

7. Newcastle – €474.4m
6. Tottenham – €711.3m
From the Premier League’s traditional ‘Big Six’, Tottenham are facing an uphill battle as their squad has the lowest market value.
Spurs will reportedly ask for bids in the region of £100m for Harry Kane should any interested parties make an approach for the striker in the summer and transfermarkt believe he has a market value of €90m.
Despite struggling to hit their best form for Spurs in 2022/23, Son Heung-min is still valued at €70m and Richarlison has a market value of €55m.
5. Manchester United – €759.2m
4. Arsenal – €803m
Arsenal have been in brilliant form during the 2022/23 season and the market value of their players has subsequently been on the rise.
Bukayo Saka has taken his game up another level this season and is now valued at €100m, making him the third-most valuable player in the Premier League.
The Gunners have a very strong core of talented young players as Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba, who are also 21 years old, are valued at €60m and €50m respectively.
Gabriel Jesus has struggled with injury problems during his debut season at the Emirates but Erling Haaland and Harry Kane are the only Premier League strikers with a higher market value than the Brazilian (€75m).
3. Liverpool – €931m
After a difficult start to the 2022/23 season, Liverpool’s players have rediscovered their best form and are now starting to show why they are third on this list.
The Reds have 10 players on their books that have a market value of at least €50m and no other Premier League side can compete with that.
Unsurprisingly, Mohamed Salah (€80m) is their most valuable player but Luis Diaz (€75m), Darwin Nunez (€70m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (€70m) follow closely behind.

2. Chelsea – €1.03billion
1. Manchester City – €1.05billion
Despite Chelsea’s vast spending in recent months, Manchester City still have the most valuable squad in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s side also have the most valuable player in the Premier League as Erling Haaland, who has already scored 33 goals in his debut season, has a market value of €170m.
Furthermore, five of the top 10 are currently on City’s books. Joining Haaland are Phil Foden (€110m), Rodri (€80m), Kevin De Bruyne (€80m) and Bernando Silva (€80m).
