Arsenal are currently in a tight race for the Premier League title with Manchester City. The Gunners are currently leading the table but could be overtaken by Pep Guardiola's team if they win their game in hand.

Regardless of whether Arsenal clinches the title this season or not, it's clear that the club is on an upward trajectory under the guidance of Mikel Arteta. A quick look at the staggering net worth of his squad is enough to get any football enthusiast excited.

As per Transfermarkt, the total value of Arsenal's team stands at approximately £960m. Bukayo Saka tops the list as the most valuable player in the squad, boasting a net worth of around £111m.

Given that the England international has been with Arsenal since he was eight years old, his impressive value is certainly good news for both the club and its supporters. In addition, club captain Martin Odegaard, who permanently joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in a £30m deal in 2021, is now estimated to be worth around £81m.

The squad's value could potentially increase even more if they manage to outdo City and secure the title. To do so, Arsenal must win their remaining three games and hope that Guardiola's side drops points in at least one of their last four matches.

Arsenal's season will conclude with matches against Bournemouth, Manchester United and Everton, while City face Wolves, Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United. The Gunners are doing all they can, yet the title remains firmly out of their hands.

Nevertheless, Arteta has promised his fans that they will be in the race until the end. "They give me the reason to believe that every single day, we are right on it," Arteta said after his side's 3-2 away victory over Spurs.

"The motivation for what is ahead is beautiful. We are all expecting that they're going to have a real go. I have so much faith in the players. They give me no reason [to doubt].

"Emotionally, it's been a very demanding month, but on Saturday, I had to stop them in training because they wanted more. That's a good sign."
