Jurgen Klopp’s team outranks Manchester City who are in second position.

As you can see, eight of the eighteen most valuable are from the Premier League.

After Everton who are eight highest here are the other 12 Premier League clubs in order (all values in millions of euros):

449 Wolves

352 West Ham

308 Aston Villa
