Liverpool have been credited with possessing the most valuable squad in world football despite the ongoing uncertain financial ramifications that have followed the ongoing pandemic.

Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions have come out on top beating Manchester City in the latest figures calculated by Transfermarkt.

John Barnes has claimed the signing of Diogo Jota is an upgrade on Divock Origi.

The summer arrivals of Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota have all helped contribute in bumping up Liverpool’s squad market value which currently sits at a gargantuan £991.08 million figure.

Manchester City have been listed with possessing the second most lucrative squad in Europe, valued at £971.64 million. Spanish giants Barcelona (£790.65m) and Real Madrid (£769.5m) were also included while the reigning Champions League holders Bayern Munich (£782.06m) completed the top five.

The Premier League featured five of the top 10 highest valued squads across the continent with Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham all included. Arsenal, Everton, Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers were involved in the top 20.

Liverpool had previously been valued upwards of £1bn although the recent financial hit that has come from the pandemic meant that the club’s overall worth had dropped by £195.6 million back in April.

However, following on from Liverpool’s Premier League triumph back in July, the squad’s value has been significantly raised by £100 million while the conservative approach in the transfer market from other English rivals has helped balance the books in the Reds’ favour.

Jota has seen his value increase by almost £11 million following on from his move from Wolverhampton Wanderers last month. Andy Robertson was Liverpool’s next highest riser with his value increased by £10m, Alisson Becker £9m and Fabinho £3m.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane remain Liverpool’s most lucratively valued players, both calculated to worth in the region of £108m.

Trent Alexander-Arnold came out second in terms of value with the 21-year-old calculated to be worth £99m. Thiago Alcantara proved to make the biggest financial impact after the Spaniard was deemed to be worth £43.2m – just under double the £25m fee they paid to sign him from Bayern Munich.
