Michael Edwards and FSG Task Made Easier as Value of Liverpool Star Reportedly “Jumps 2900 Per Cent”

Liverpool currently hold the top position in a crucial financial metric within the Premier League this season, with Dominik Szoboszlai playing a pivotal role alongside a rising star.

The future manager of Liverpool will inherit a remarkably talented squad, with most players capable of securing a starting position in the XI of nearly any football club worldwide.

The high caliber of players on the roster makes life easier for Michael Edwards and the succeeding sporting director in the short term. Despite various changes off the field at Liverpool this summer, the positive aspect is that the squad merely requires selective enhancements rather than a complete overhaul.

Jurgen Klopp’s legacy manifests in various ways, notably in steering the team from the lows of the previous season to the significantly improved performance in 2023/24, as evidenced by the increased value of the Liverpool squad this season.

In the realm of football, each player possesses a potential price tag, contingent upon the willingness of another club to meet the demands. However, the actual value of footballers remains elusive to ascertain accurately. Transfermarkt adopts a ‘wisdom of crowds’ methodology to assign market values to players across the sport.

Considering various factors such as age and contract duration, Transfermarkt endeavours to establish what it perceives as a fair valuation rather than dictating the price a club should accept for a player.

The most recent update from Transfermarkt highlights Liverpool’s squad as the Premier League leader in value growth this season. Consequently, the collective worth of Liverpool’s roster has surged by $137.4 million (£107.8 million/€126 million). This development likely brings satisfaction to John Henry and all affiliated with FSG.

The team was evaluated at $866.1 million (£680.0 million/€794.8 million) in August, ranking fifth in the Premier League in terms of value. While they’ve only moved up one spot since then, many prefer Liverpool’s squad over Chelsea’s $1.01 billion (£794.1 million/€928.3 million) team, often referred to as “bottle jobs.” Nonetheless, further growth is expected in the future.

Dominik Szoboszlai has seen the highest increase in value this season, rising from $54.4 million (£42.8 million/€50 million) to $81.7 million (£64.1 million/€75 million) during his debut season in England. He currently shares the title of highest-valued player with Luis Díaz.

Szoboszlai is the only Liverpool player in the top 40 for total value increase in the 2023/24 season. Curtis Jones narrowly misses out due to an injury suffered at Brentford last month, but his value has still risen significantly this season.

Youngsters at the club have shown impressive growth in percentage terms. Jarell Quansah’s value has skyrocketed by 2,900 per cent since last summer, placing him third in proportional rise behind Murillo and Kobbie Mainoo.

Conor Bradley has seen the sixth-greatest percentage increase in the Premier League this season, now valued at ten times his worth last July. Despite this, Liverpool supporters believe his recent performances deserve even more recognition.

Players like Bobby Clark, Jayden Danns, Lewis Koumas, and James McConnell are currently valued at $1.1 million (£855,000/€1 million) or less. Though they have yet to reach their peaks, they’ve already contributed to various successes for the team, indicating potential for further growth in their market value.

The entire Liverpool squad is experiencing a rise in value, a testament to the efforts across all levels of the club. This bodes well for decision-makers like FSG, Edwards, and the future sporting director.

While financial figures are theoretical, the improvement in Liverpool’s playing staff over the past year is evident to all. The next manager will have a talented and valuable group of players to work with.
