The latest report from the CIES Football Observatory algorithm has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have the 13th most valuable squad among Europe’s top five leagues, and the fifth-highest in the Premier League.
The report claims that Tottenham’s current crop of players could be sold for a collective figure of €568 million (£485m), which is a significant drop from the £627 million valuation set by football database transfermarkt.com.
Spurs sit just one place above North London rivals Arsenal who are in 14th with a squad value of €563 million after a summer of hefty spending in which they acquired Ben White and Martin Odegaard on permanent deals.
The CIES report shows that Manchester City boast the highest estimated squad in Europe worth £1.28 billion, and are closely followed by rivals Manchester United (£1.21bn) in second.
Tottenham’s rivals Chelsea round out the top three, with Thomas Tuchel’s side holding a total transfer value of £946 million.
Spurs elected not to over-exert themselves in the transfer market this summer, which saw the club’s chiefs Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici make a few notable purchases.
Bryan Gil (£21.6m) was acquired from Sevilla in exchange for Erik Lamela, while Emerson Royal (£25.8m) was drafted in from Barcelona.
They also shelled out around €18 million (£15.3m) for Metz midfield prospect Pape Matar Sarr, but loaned him back to the Ligue 1 side for the full campaign.
However, the club’s biggest signing in Serie A defender of the year Cristian Romero was actually a loan deal, though Spurs could exercise an option clause worth £46 million in the coming months. His former Atalanta teammate, Pierluigi Gollini also joined the club.

Spurs Web Opinion
Spurs made a start on their long-awaited rebuild in the summer, alongside keeping hold of their most valuable player in Harry Kane. The recent additions to the squad haven’t cost too much, yet they could prove to be smart signings and value for money in the near future due to their relatively modest price tags.
