Hammers return to the European elite list

Premier League clubs now account for almost a third of the most valuable teams in football in Europe according to the latest Football Benchmark report.

Having seen their finances rebound from the depths of the Covid-19 pandemic, ten clubs from the English Premier League feature in Football Benchmark’s latest ranking of Europe’s 32 most valuable teams. West Ham returns to the list after a year away while Aston Villa is a new entry.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City are the Premier League’s most valuable clubs.

West Ham are ranked 16th and valued at between 515 and 567 million Euros  (£440m to £484m)

The valuation seems to be at odds with the £150m-£180m Daniel Kretinsky is reported to have paid for 27% of West Ham last year.

  1. And we cant even get Areola signing over the line … or buy a striker after having gone 18 months without one or pay Soucek whats hes worth considering he started 54 games last season.. or get Aguerd over the line for 25m when Seville had a 12.5m bid accepted . What is going on? .. Didnt Kretinsky just buy 150m worth of shares? … wheres the money .. wheres the signings? … this is getting ridiculous

  2. So let’s see us throw some of that “elite” around then. Ward-Prowse and Dec looked good as a pair yesterday. Let’s make Southampton an offer they can’t refuse for him. That’s what a big club would do. If we’re a big club, let’s be a big club and do big club things.

  3. The values appear to vary wildly! (Questionable methodology?…. Social Media bias?)
    Not sure I agree that Spurs are valued higher than Arsenal, Juve, both Milans and 3 x West Ham, 4 x Villa and 5x Everton…..

  4. 1. A lot of noise and nonsense is generated by Twitter and other social media. Only a few know any actual information. Best to ignore the rest.

    2. We as a club really ought to have signed at least one, if not two, by the start of the window, given that we probably need to sign 5-7 players. We do our business pretty badly.

  5. The valuation is a fair way short of the £800m valuation the Baroness quotes on her personal website. Surely she’s not manipulating the truth…
