Newcastle United’s squad could look very different in a few months time.
Reports that the new owners at St James’s Park may start to splash the cash have been circling ever since the deal was confirmed.
However, right now, Newcastle lie in 19th position and with just one summer signing made, they arguably have a weaker squad than they had last campaign.
But how much is their squad worth and where do Newcastle rank compared to their Premier League rivals?
Here, using data collected from Transfermarkt, we have listed the most valuable squad put out by every Premier League side this season and each team’s ‘Most Valuable Player’.
What do you think about these valuations? Are you surprised at Newcastle United’s position?
