Liverpool have the seventh highest valued squad in the world, according to a report by CIES Football Observatory.
The Swiss football tank calculate individual player values based on age, ability, contract status, form and plenty of other things, and have added up the totals to get their rankings.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Manchester City are top, with a squad valued at £1.196bn!
That truly is an astonishing amount.
Interestingly, Spurs are next – ahead of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and United – with Liverpool next at 7th.

CIES rate Mo Salah above Sadio Mane and Coutinho as our highest valued player at £101m – although we can assure them it would cost a lot more than that for Jurgen Klopp and the club to consider sanctioning a sale!
We have a number of very sellable assets in fact, but Coutinho is the only one whose head has been turned.
Thankfully, Mane and Salah are very happy and tied to long-term contracts and are arguably more important to us than the Brazilian anyway.
