The 20 most successful teams in the transfer market (10th-1st)

Liverpool - the kings of the transfer market right now!

10. Ajax

Market value - £322.76m

Purchase value - £107.82m

Difference - £214.94m

The masters of buying low and selling high. But Hakim Ziyech's move to Chelsea and Donny van de Beek's likely exit will see Ajax's 'market value' take a huge hit.

9. Real Sociedad

Market value - £288.45m

Purchase value - £58.73m

Difference - £229.73m

What makes Sociedad's ranking here even more impressive is the fact that Martin Odegaard (£40.5m) isn't even included in their 'market value' due to the fact he's on loan from Real Madrid. Mikel Oyarzabal (£43.2m) makes up for the Norwegian's absence.

8. Atletico Madrid

Market value - £639.18m

Purchase value - £403.11m

Difference - £236.07m

Jan Oblak (£72m) and Saul Niguez (£64.8m) are the primary reasons why Atleti's 'difference' is so high, especially after they spent over £100m on Joao Felix.

7. Chelsea

Market value - £610.20m

Purchase value - £360.81m

Difference - £249.39m

N'Golo Kante (£72m) and Mason Mount (£36.45m) really help the Blues out here. The impending arrivals of Ziyech and Timo Werner will certainly see the club's 'difference' decrease.

6. Inter Milan

Market value - £498.02m

Purchase value - £235.61m

Difference - £262.40m

Lautaro Martinez (£57.6m), Christian Eriksen (£61.2m), Stefan de Vrij (£43.2m) and Milan Skriniar (£43.2m) were all signed for a fraction of their valuation, hence why Inter sit in sixth spot.

5. Borussia Dortmund

Market value - £527.60m

Purchase value - £251.04m

Difference - £276.56m

Haaland and Jadon Sancho were signed for a combined total of around £25m. They're now worth close to £200m as a pair. Do we need to say anymore?

4. Tottenham

Market value - £642.96m

Purchase value - £357.89m

Difference - £285.08m

Harry Kane didn't cost Spurs a penny and he's worth £108m right now. Dele Alli cost £5m and is now worth £57.6m, so it's not actually that surprising to see Jose Mourinho's side sitting comfy in fourth.

3. RB Leipzig

Market value - £470.32m

Purchase value - £157.39m

Difference - £312.93m

Dayot Upamecano, Ibrahima Konate, Lukas Klostermann and Marcel Sabitzer were all signed on the cheap and have seen their values rapidly increase of late. The loss of Timo Werner (£57.6m) will see Leipzig drop a few places on this list in due course.

2. Bayern Munich

Market value - £681.64m

Purchase value - £320.85m

Difference - £360.79m

Sensational on the pitch and incredibly wise off of it. Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies were all signed for pennies and are all now worth £40m+ - that's how you run a football club.

1. Liverpool

Market value - £881.51m

Purchase value - £497.93m

Difference - £383.58m

Is there anything Liverpool can't do? Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are both worth £108m, while academy product Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are worth £150m combined. No wonder Jurgen Klopp's team are the best in the world!

Salah & Mane

Liverpool and Bayern are streets ahead of the rest right now and given their form on the pitch, their market values are only going to increase.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid all miss out on the top 20...
