Ranked! Every Premier League club by squad value – how much is your team worth?
15. Brighton (£159.3m)
Summer signing Alireza Jahanbakhsh has only just started his first Premier League game for Brighton, but the Iran international can console himself with the knowledge that he's the most valuable player in Albion's squad at £16.2m (aged 25, 42 Iran caps to his name and the Eredivisie's top goalscorer in 2017/18).
Davy Propper, Yves Bissouma and Jurgen Locadia all clock in at £13.5m, but some of the Seagulls' most important players - namely Glenn Murray (£2.7m) and Dale Stephens (£5.4m) - are worth far more to their current employers than they would be if sold to another club.
14. Burnley (£163.58m)
Burnley's success under Sean Dyche has been built on a collective spirit which helped the Clarets finish seventh in the Premier League last term. There are no standout stars at Turf Moor, and each player is seen as a key component in a squad which is worth more than the sum of its individual parts.
Burnley's squad is deemed to be valued at £163.58m, which places them above only six teams in this ranking. James Tarkowski, Jack Cork and Ben Gibson are all listed at £13.5m, but Chris Wood eclipses the trio at £16.2m.
13. Wolves (£172.35m)
Wolves have earned plenty of admirers in the first couple of months of the season, losing just one of their opening eight matches and catching the eye with their bold, proactive style of play. There's been much talk about the West Midlanders' Jorge Mendes-focused recruitment in recent times; and so given that, it's perhaps a little surprising that they only rank 13th here.
Ruben Neves, 21 years of age and tied down at Molineux until 2023, is their most valuable player at £22.5m, followed by summer addition Adama Traore and last season's arrival Diogo Jota (£16.2m). At the other end of the spectrum, Matt Doherty and Conor Coady are regular starters yet neither is considered worth more than £5m. Mightily unfair – but that will doubtlessly change soon.
12. Crystal Palace (£193.73m)
No team in the Premier League is as reliant on a single player as Crystal Palace are with Wilfried Zaha. The Ivory Coast international is, by some distance, the Eagles' best player, which is reflected in his market value of £27m - over 25% more than second-placed Christian Benteke.
Max Meyer was snapped up on a free transfer in the summer but would cost around £16.2m if he was sold tomorrow, while Palace could expect to fetch around £13.5m for each of Mamadou Sakho and Andros Townsend apparently.
11. Fulham (£218.25m)
Only title contenders Liverpool and Chelsea spent more than Fulham in the summer, as the Cottagers splurged £105m in their attempts to avoid an immediate return to the Championship. One win from eight isn't the start chairman Shad Khan would have hoped for after such investment, but Slavisa Jokanovic remains confident that the west Londoners will climb up the table once their new-look squad has gelled.
Signing former Barcelona target Jean Michael Seri was a real coup, which is reflected by his £27m valuation. Ryan Sessegnon is top of Fulham's list, though, with the 18-year-old apparently worth around £31.5m.
