Liverpool, Man Utd: How much each Premier League club's squad value has changed in 2021/22

Manchester United and Tottenham have seen the biggest drop in the overall market value of their squad this season.

The football transfer market is an ever-changing eco-system.

Just a single performance is enough to cause a drastic fluctuation in a player’s market value – much in the same way that one minor alteration in the business world could send a company’s stock price soaring or crashing to the floor.

It’s an interesting concept then to consider how much every Premier League clubs’ total market value has changed since the season began.

It’s not quite as simple as the best squads have seen the highest increase, in fact, in some cases it’s exactly the opposite, as OLondonWorld discovered when they set out to rank each club based upon the difference in the change of their valuation.

Check out what they came up with below.

1. Brentford

Start of season overall squad market value: £147.83m
Current squad market value: £207.81m
Overall percentage change: +40.6%
Most valuable player: Ivan Toney (estimated market value = £31.5 million)

The Bees have enjoyed an impressive first season in England’s top-flight and as a result, have seen a drastic percentage increase in the value of their squad.

Current squad market value: £313.88m
Overall percentage change: +22.9%
Most valuable player: Declan Rice (estimated market value = £67.5 million)

Rice represents over a fifth of the Hammers overall squad value, although, it would take much more than a mere £67.5 million to snatch him away from the grasp of David Moyes.

3. Crystal Palace

Start of season overall squad market value: £193.91m
Current squad market value: £233.96m
Overall percentage change: +20.7%

Start of season overall squad market value: £220.28m
Current squad market value: £259.2m
Overall percentage change: +17.7%
Most valuable player: Kalvin Phillips (estimated market value = £45m)

Phillips’ stock has probably dropped considerably since his stellar performance at the European Championships last summer, yet, he just pips Raphina as Leeds’ most valuable player.

Current squad market value: £239.18m
Overall percentage change: +11%

Start of season overall squad market value: £122.9m
Current squad market value: £128.52m
Overall percentage change: +4.6%
Most valuable player: Ismaila Sarr (estimated market value = £24.3m)

The Hornets have endured an underwhelming season back in the Premier League and will be hoping they can hold onto star man Sarr to aid their bid in returning to the bigtime.

Current squad market value: £229.5m
Overall percentage change: +2.8%

Aston Villa might have just signed Phillipe Coutinho, but Watkins remains their most valuable asset, with the 29-year-old Brazilian holding a transfer value of only £18 million.

11. Liverpool

Start of season overall squad market value: £814.05m
Current squad market value: £810.45m
Overall percentage change: -0.4%
Most valuable player: Mo Salah (estimated market value = £90m)

The Reds have seen a minor decrease in their squad value, mainly due to certain players such as Jordan Henderson, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk all pushing around the 30+ mark.

12. Norwich City

Start of season overall squad market value: £133.47m
Current squad market value: £131.9m
Overall percentage change: -1.2%
Most valuable player: Max Aarons (estimated market value = £19.8m)

Norwich have been a real disappointment and they’ve seen a drop in their already inexpensive squad – by Premier League standards at least…

13. Arsenal

Start of season overall squad market value: £483.3m
Current squad market value: £468.9m
Overall percentage change: -3%
Most valuable player: Bukayo Saka (estimated market value = £58.5m)

It’s surprising that the Gunners have seen a drop in their squad value given the quality young players they have littered throughout the club. However, the sale of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will no doubt have something to do with that.

14. Leicester City

Start of season overall squad market value: £499.59m
Current squad market value: £463.32m
Overall percentage change: -7.3%
Most valuable player: Wilfred Ndidi (estimated market value = £54m)

15. Everton

Start of season overall squad market value: £445.95m
Current squad market value: £402.98m
Overall percentage change: -9.6%
Most valuable player: Richarlison (estimated market value = £45m)

Everton’s squad value of over £400 million really puts into perspective just how poorly that team has performed this season.

Current squad market value: £863.37m
Overall percentage change: -9.7%
Most valuable player: Kevin De Bruyne (estimated market value = £81m)

Man City’s original squad value of nearly one billion is simply mind boggling. The signing of Erling Haaland is only going to bump their figures up even higher come July.

Current squad market value: £316.8m
Overall percentage change: -12.3%
Most valuable player: Ruben Neves (estimated market value = £36m)
