While Tottenham Hotspur have arguably had a first eleven capable of competing with the top teams in world football for the best part of the last decade, it now finally feels as though the club boast a well-rounded squad capable of compensating for injuries.
After bringing in seven new players in the summer, Jose Mourinho’s men have two top players in almost every position.
It is a testament to the strength of the squad that the likes of Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks, who were important players over the last couple of seasons, are now struggling to even make the bench in Premier League games.
Perhaps the biggest compliment to Daniel Levy, Mourinho (as well as his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino) and the Tottenham recruitment team is the fact that they have able to assemble such a squad despite spending only a fraction of what some of their rivals have.
According to a financial giants KPMG (as relayed by The Daily Mail), Tottenham’s first-team squad is now estimated to have a market value of £785m, which makes it the seventh most valuable squad in world football.
Manchester City (£1,056m), Liverpool (£993m) and Chelsea (£865m) are the only Premier League teams whose squad is considered to be more valuable, while Real Madrid (£837m), Barcelona (£807m) and Bayern Munich (£806m) are also ahead of Spurs.
Tottenham’s squad is considered to be more valuable than the likes of Paris-Saint Germain, Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.
In fact, Tottenham are the only team in the top ten of the list to not play Champions League football this season, with all of the others having qualified for the knockout stages of Europe’s premier club competition.
