Arsenal now replace Chelsea as the second most valuable squad in the world

Arsenal have surpassed Chelsea to become the second most valuable squad in the world, according to Transfermarkt. The treble-winning Manchester City squad leads the rankings with an astonishing value of £1.6 billion.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, who had a disappointing season under new ownership, finished in 12th place despite spending nearly £600 million on players in the last transfer window. The Blues’ squad is valued at £838 million, even as they attempt to offload players like Hakim Ziyech, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Edouard Mendy.

The Gunners, under the guidance of Mikel Arteta, has been focused on securing the long-term futures of key players such as Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, while also working on contract extensions for other valuable assets.

Last season highlighted the contrasting fortunes of the two London clubs, with Arsenal impressing and Chelsea struggling, ultimately failing to secure a European football spot and enduring their worst league campaign in three decades.

The anticipated sales of players like Mason Mount, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, and Mateo Kovacic, who is reportedly on Manchester City’s radar, could create room for new signings and potentially reshape the Chelsea squad. German giants Bayern Munich claim the fourth spot in the rankings, while Paris Saint-Germain, who recently lost Lionel Messi, round out the top five.

Arsenal has been linked with West Ham’s Declan Rice, as they aim to bolster their squad. If the Gunners add Rice on top of Jurrien Timber, Romeo Lavia, they will certainly take the next step in increasing the squad value of their current side.

  1. I’m glad this truth is out. Tired of the blatant lie saying we didn’t have enough players/good enough squad.

    We have alot of players on our books, most of the fringe players just haven’t been coached and upskilled. MA seems to be a good tactician but doesn’t seem to be very good at coaching players to be better. If a player isn’t naturally brilliant themselves, then there seems to be little to no improvement.

    1. How many players in our squad would walk into that City first team? How many players in our squad could bench any City first team players?

      Even our own fanbase has not been that impressed / conviced with our squad since 2021/22 season. Been very skeptical.

      1. How many of our players could walk into any team EXCEPT City?

        Of course ours won’t walk into city, their players are better that’s why they ranked first. Silly argument.

        A better argument is our players walking into other teams. Other clubs would be lining up for the likes of Martinelli, Saka, Saliba, Gabriel M., and others.

        That ranking shows we have the quality, Tomiyasu, Tierney, Trossard, are quality depth players.

        What we lack is the mentality still, IMHO it’s more important than player additions. Once they get that mentality and grit, the real show begins about what they can achieve.

  2. Thought the article was about the ladies teams .
    How on earth can Arsenal be second ,Madrids midfield alone is worth more than our squad if anyone wanted to bid for them ,a team i see dominating European football along with city for the next 5 years
