Premier League Clubs Ranked On How Much Their Squad Cost
The Premier League is the most-watched sports league globally, with an estimated audience of over 3.2 billion people in over 190 countries. Premier League generates significant revenue from broadcasting rights, sponsorships, ticket sales, merchandise, and other sources. This money is distributed among the league’s 20 clubs.
However, not all clubs have the same kind of financial backing and some are more cautious in spending the buck compared to other teams in the league. In the article, we have the Premier League clubs ranked on squad cost.
Here are all 20 Premier League clubs ranked on squad cost. All data have been taken from transfermarkt website.
20. Brighton & Hove Albion
Squad Cost : €111.16m
Current Squad Value: €358.50m
Brighton has a current squad value of €358.50m. This represents a significant increase from the squad cost of €111.16m, highlighting the club’s investment in high-quality players. They are currently sixth in the Premier League table and are pushing for European football next season. With continued investment in players and facilities, the club looks set to continue to grow and thrive in the years ahead.
Squad Cost : €124.10m
Current Squad Value: €318.10m
Their squad cost may only be the second lowest in the Premier League, but they are playing some good football. They are currently in the top half of the table and will hope to finish the season on a high. Ivan Toney is the club’s most valuable player with a market value of €50.00m, after being purchased for only €5.60m in 2020.
Squad Cost : €137.00m
Current Squad Value: €253.50m
Fulham also exceeded expectations in the first half of the season. However, they may have lost track in the last five games, winning only one of five. They are currently in tenth place on the league table and will be a good season for them if they can finish in the top half.
17. Nottingham Forest
Squad Cost : €178.22m
Current Squad Value: €332.65m
Premier League newcomers for the season, Nottingham Forest bought tonnes of players in the summer and winter transfer windows. However, they are yet to produce the best from their side and are currently involved in the relegation, with the club being in 17th place at this time.
Squad Cost : €209.55m
Current Squad Value: €243.70m
Bournemouth’s current first-team squad cost just over €200m and their market value is €243.70m. They are currently involved in the relegation battle with eight other teams possibly, in one of the most intense relegation battles in the Premier League history.
15. Crystal Palace
Squad Cost : €217.99m
Current Squad Value: €309.95m
Crystal Palace are currently 12th in the league table, a position they are more or less comfortable with. However, they are just 3 points safer from relegation and are far from safe just yet. They recently sacked their manager Patrick Vieira, who didn’t really do much wrong. It will be interesting to see how they finish the season under their new (or old) manager Roy Hodgson.
14. Leeds United
Squad Cost : €241.81m
Current Squad Value: €318.00m
Leeds United have a cost of over €240m and they are one of the biggest clubs in the country in terms of fan following. It’s good for the Premier League if a club of Leeds stature stay in it, however, to ensure that Leeds have a lot to do yet. They are in the 13th place on the league table, but they can’t afford to lose focus in one of the tightest Premier League relegation battles ever.
