Southampton’s current squad value assessed by recent report

Southampton’s current squad of players has been valued at £212m and ranked alongside some of the leading clubs from around Europe.

A report from the CIES Football Observatory – as shown by Sky Sports – has Saints with the 37th-most valuable group of players when put up against the clubs from the top five leagues in the continent.

The figure given is based on the potential price tag of players in the current market with Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse being the club’s highest valued player at £40-50m right now.

The squad at St Mary’s also contains players like Tino Livramento and Mohammed Salisu who could go on to become players of huge value given that they are long-term investments to build on.

Southampton’s squad value broken down from highest to lowest

James Ward-Prowse: £40-50m

Che Adams: £30-40m

Stuart Armstrong: £20-30m

Armando Broja: £20-30m

Jan Bednarek: £20-30m

Mohammed Salisu: £15-20m

Kyle Walker-Peters: £15-20m

Adam Armstrong: £10-15m

Moussa Djenepo: £7-10m

Moi Elyounoussi: £7-10m

Ibrahima Diallo: £7-10m

Lyanco: £4-7m

Nathan Tella: £4-7m

Jack Stephens: £4-7m

Alex McCarthy: £4-7m

Oriol Romeu: £4-7m

Theo Walcott: £2-4m

Will Smallbone: £1-2m

Fraser Forster: £1-2m

Shane Long: Less than £1m

Yan Valery: Less than £1m

Thierry Small: No figure given

Tino Livramento: No figure given

Harry Lewis: No figure given

Sam McQueen: No figure given

Ward-Prowse is backed up by Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong in this list and this seems about right given that those three have arguably been the most effective three players during Ralph Hasenhuttl’s time as manager at Southampton.

Saints would surely be charging even more than the quoted top price of £50m for Ward-Prowse now because of the long-term contract he is tied to after the summer.

Mohammed Salisu, Armando Broja and Jan Bednarek follow close behind the leaders because of their potential to become top class players in the future, whilst some other values need to be assessed alongside the players age and their contract length for full context.
