According to a new assessment from the CIES Football Observatory, Arsenal’s squad is the 14th most valued among Europe’s top five leagues and the sixth most valuable among the 20 Premier League clubs. Mikel Arteta’s team would be worth €563 million (£482 million) if every player was sold.
That figure is slightly lower than transfermarkt’s estimate of £493 million for Arsenal’s squad, which puts them in seventh place behind Leicester City.
The club spent more money than any other team over the summer to reinforce their roster, with centre back Ben White and Martin Odegaard, who had previously been on loan, being the notable additions.
Chelsea has the continent’s third-highest estimated squad worth. The club would earn €946 million (£810 million) if all of Thomas Tuchel’s players were sold, trailing Manchester City’s €1.28 billion and Manchester United’s €1.21 billion.
Tottenham Hotspur, Tottenham’s North London rivals, are ranked 13th in the CIES table, with a team worth €568 million.
West Ham United is in 25th place with €337 million, while Crystal Palace is in 50th place with €169 million. Brentford, who were just promoted to the Premier League, have the fourth-highest with €153.
