English Premier League is the biggest football league in the world. It is the most-watched sports league in the world, broadcast in 212 territories to 643 million homes and a potential TV audience of 4.7 billion people. The market value of the Premier League clubs is huge due to the massive TV broadcast deals. In this article, we will be ranking the Premier League clubs based on squad value only.
It’s well known that the Premier League is the richest domestic competition in world football, but which club has the most valuable squad? Using data from Transfermarkt, we’ve ranked all 20 teams on that very question.
Of course, a player’s actual value is determined by how much a buyer is willing to pay for him. The figures here are therefore estimates, albeit ones based on relevant factors such as ability, age, contract status and plenty more.
This data is correct as of 12th August 2020.
20. West Brom [60.80 mil. €]
West Brom finished second in the Championship last season, resulted in qualifying for the Premier League. They have great rivalries with Wolves and Aston Villa and it will be interesting to see those matches at the highest level.
West Brom has a collective squad value of worth €60.8m. Their most valued players are Jake Livermore, Matt Phillips, and Sam Johnstone.
19. Leeds United [71.35 mil. €]
Leeds won the Championship last season under the management of Marcelo Bielsa. The club is expected to make few signings to fight in the Premier League. With those signings coming in, the squad value will rise and so will Leeds United in this list.
Their most valuable player of the current squad is Kalvin Phillips, who is worth €12m, followed by Helder Costa(€8m) and Patrick Bamford(€6.5m).
18. Sheffield United [126.85 mil. €]
This should come as much as a surprise, given the club’s performance in the Premier League last season. The club finished on the 9th position in the league table, above the likes of Everton and Newcastle. The club didn’t spend heaps of money and still boast a handful of players from their League One days.
Their most valuable player is Sander Berge (€20m), followed by Lys Mousset(€13m) and John Egan(€12m).
17. Fulham [129.20 mil. €]
Premier League newcomers Fulham have the squad value of 129.20m Euros. Their most valuable players are Aleksander Mitrovic and Andre Anguissa, being valued at €20m each.
Fulham were promoted to the Premier League via a Championship playoff final against Brentford, which they won by two goals to one. As a newly promoted club, Fulham is expected to make a handful of signings, which could see them move up on this chart.
16. Burnley [154.03 mil. €]
A club of Burnley’s size can probably never feel completely relaxed about their Premier League status, but under Sean Dyche’s astute management, the Clarets have managed to establish themselves in the top tier.
The extent of Dyche’s achievement is evidenced by the fact that, even after four successive seasons at this level, Burnley’s squad has the lowest collective value of anyone but the promoted clubs and Sheffield United.
Left Winger Dwight McNeil is their most valuable asset, with the price of €25m, followed by Centre-Back James Tarkowski(€20m).
