Updated transfer value calculator

The CIES Football Observatory is pleased to announce the update of its online calculator for the transfer value of big-5 league players. The coefficients of the indicators taken into account were modified by including the fee paying transfers of this summer’s transfer window. The calculator is freely accessible online from our website.

Thanks to our tool, anyone can obtain an accurate, up to date transfer value for players taking part in the five principle markets of European football: the English Premier League, Spanish Primera Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A and the French Ligue 1.

Our statistical model is based on almost 1,500 fee paying transfers having taken place at big-5 league club level from 2009 onwards. The correlation between estimated and actually paid sums is greater than 80%. This shows that we have been able to reveal the logics of the transfer market. This allows us to anticipate events and highlight market bias.

Our team is at service of market actors for expert audits for both big-5 league players and professional footballers playing in other championships at worldwide level. Do not hesitate to access the calculator here.
