Liverpool's 2019/20 squad: All player’s current market value compared to start of the season


Jamie Carragher recently praised Jurgen Klopp for his record of improving players at Liverpool.

The Reds have endured an almighty rise under the German and Carragher believes it's down to their work on the training ground which has resulted in Liverpool not needing to buy superstars.

"Robertson came from Hull, Wijnaldum was relegated with Newcastle, Salah had been at Chelsea, Mane had been in the Premier League…they are not just going to the best clubs in the world and buying the best players," Carragher told Sky Sports.

"Liverpool are not buying superstars, they are making them."

There have been occasions in which the Reds splashed the cash. They paid word-record fees to sign Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk, while Naby Keita cost £48 million.
But those signings were needed to put Liverpool in a position to compete for the biggest trophies.

They are the reigning European champions and have one hand on the Premier League title.

And a study of how every Liverpool players' market value has changed since the summer shows the impact that Klopp has had on his squad.

All of the values are provided courtesy of Transfermarkt.co.uk.

Alisson

Value in the summer: £72m

Current value: £81m

Alisson's value has increased by £9m during a season in which he's positioned himself as arguably the best goalkeeper in the world.


Adrian


Value in the summer: £3.15m

Current value: £4.5m

The Spaniard enjoyed a rare run of first-team appearances earlier in the season after Alisson went down injured and he showed that he's one of the better backups around.

Liverpool got him on a free and he's now worth £4.5m.

Caoimhin Kelleher

Value in the summer: £450k

Current value: £900k

Kelleher could soon be Alisson's backup. The 21-year-old has doubled his market value after making three appearances in the Carabao Cup this season.


Andy Lonergan

Value in the summer: £225k

Current value: £225k

No change to Lonergan's value. The 36-year-old hasn't played a competitive game this season.


Virgil van Dijk

Value in the summer: £81m

Current value: £90m

Liverpool paid £75m to sign Van Dijk in January 2018 and he's now increased his value to £90m with a number of monstrous displays.

Even that value seems low for the best centre-back in the world.


Joel Matip

Value in the summer: £27m

Current value: £36m

Matip hasn't played since October due to a knee injury. But he played well at the start of the campaign and has increased his value by £9m.


Joe Gomez

Value in the summer: £31.5m

Current value: £31.5m

Gomez's value hasn't changed despite a consistent run of games at centre-back owing to Matip's injury.
He's only 22 and if he can keep his place in the first-team, his value should rise.


Dejan Lovren

Value in the summer: £18m

Current value: £18m

Lovren's value remains £18m. He's cut out the mistakes and has proven himself to be a fine squad player.


Andrew Robertson

Value in the summer: £54m

Current value: £72m

The Scotland left-back has added nearly £20m to his value since the start of the season.

Robertson is enjoying another fine campaign with six assists in 21 Premier League appearances.


Trent Alexander-Arnold

Value in the summer: £72m

Current value: £99m

Alexander-Arnold comes so close to breaking the £100m barrier.
Liverpool should be exceptionally proud of the 21-year-old, who has risen from their academy into perhaps the best right-back in the world.


Fabinho

Value in the summer: £45m

Current value: £63m

Liverpool fans saw Fabinho at this very best before he suffered an ankle injury in November.
He's added £18m to his value since the summer and is in the conversation for the best defensive midfielders in Europe.


Georginio Wijnaldum

Value in the summer: £45m

Current value: £45m

Wijnaldum's value hasn't changed, although that's in part due to his age. The Netherlands international turned 29 last November.


Naby Keita

Value in the summer: £54m

Current value: £37.8m

Transfermarkt believe Keita has lost £16.2m to his value this season, which is a large number for a 24-year-old who is playing in a successful team.
The Guinean hasn't met expectations since his arrival in 2018, with injuries preventing him from really kicking on.
Keita has shown flashes of his talent, but can Liverpool depend on him to stay fit?


Jordan Henderson

Value in the summer: £31.5m

Current value: £31.5m

Never has Henderson enjoyed his time at Liverpool more than he currently is.
The midfielder has been at the club since 2011 and is now getting the recognition he deserves.
Like Wijnaldum, Henderson's value hasn't changed as he's 29.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Value in the summer: £31.5m

Current value: £31.5m

Competition and injuries haven't helped Oxlade-Chamberlain's bid for a decent run of games at Anfield.
But he's never let Klopp down when called upon.


James Milner

Value in the summer: £13.5m

Current value: £10.8m

In December, Milner signed a new contract to stay at Liverpool until 2022.
That shows just how much Klopp values the 34-year-old, whose value has dropped to £10.8m.


Adam Lallana

Value in the summer: £13.5m

Current value: £10.8m

Lallana's contract expires in the summer and it's not yet clear whether he will be offered an extension to stay at the club.
Like so many players in the squad, he's carried out his role with class.
He's valued at £10.8m but there will be a number of clubs eager to snatch Lallana up on a free in the summer.


Sadio Mane

Value in the summer: £108m

Current value: £135m

Mane's value has increased by £27m since the summer, the biggest increase of any Liverpool player (Alexander-Arnold's has also increased by £27m).

The Senegalese forward has been brilliant this season, scoring 11 goals in the Premier League, and proof of his rise came when Lionel Messi said it was a "shame" to see him finish fourth in voting for the 2019 Ballon d'Or award.


Takumi Minamino

Value in the summer: £4.5m

Current value: £11.25m

Liverpool paid Minamino's release clause to sign him from Red Bull Salzburg, which was £7.25m, but he's worth more than that.


Mohamed Salah

Value in the summer: £135m

Current value: £135m

No change to Salah's value. The Egyptian is the most valuable player in Liverpool's squad, along with Mane, and is delivering the goods once again this season.


Xherdan Shaqiri

Value in the summer: £22.5m

Current value: £19.8m

Shaqiri has endured a tough season, managing just 175 minutes of Premier League action.
His value has dropped as a result, but Klopp isn't willing to let the Swiss midfielder leave in January.


Roberto Firmino

Value in the summer: £72m

Current value: £81m

Gary Neville lavished praise on Firmino after he scored the winner in Liverpool's 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur last week.

"Any manager in the world would love to have Firmino as their centre forward," Neville told Sky Sports. I think he’s absolutely incredible."
 Firmino's value has jumped to £81m, a figure that reflects the Brazilian's immense talent.


Divock Origi

Value in the summer: £18m

Current value: £18m

Origi retains his summer value having started just four league games this season. Klopp won't be interesting in taking calls for the Belgian this month, though.


These valuations reflect a club that is certainly on the rise.

The increases to the values of Mane, Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are just incredible.

So perhaps Carragher got it right when he said that Klopp has made superstars.

And when you factor in how much they received for Philippe Coutinho - which funded their moves for Van Dijk and Alisson, it's fair to say Liverpool are smashing it in the transfer market right now.
