The 20 most valuable players in the Premier League revealed

Football’s relationship with money is an extremely complicated one, especially now as we’re beginning to see the smaller clubs pay the ultimate price of the global pandemic.

With that being said, the insane numbers that are thrown around on a regular basis probably aren’t going to change too drastically any time soon.

Manchester City’s European ban for ‘breaching’ FFP rules being overturned was the clearest indication yet, that there really isn’t a fit and proper set of regulations to manage the money that is passed around the game.

That means the valuations of individual players is still eye-watering, the folks at Transfermarkt have attempted to put those numbers into some perspective, by releasing a list of the Premier League’s most valuable names.

The Premier League’s 20 most valuable players

20. Timo Werner, Chelsea – £57.6 million

19. Heung-min Son, Tottenham – £57.6 million

18. Rodri, Manchester City – £57.6 million

17. Andy Robertson, Liverpool – £57.6 million

16. Dele Alli, Tottenham – £57.6 million

15. Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United – £63 million

14. Roberto Firmino, Liverpool – £64.8 million

13. Alisson, Liverpool – £64.8 million

12. Paul Pogba, Manchester United – £72 million


11. Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool – £72 million

10. N’Golo Kanté, Chelsea – £72 million

9. Bernardo Silva, Manchester City – £72 million

8. Marcus Rashford, Manchester United – £72 million

7. Kai Havertz – £72.9 million

6. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool – £99 million

5. Harry Kane, Tottenham, – £108 million


4. Sadio Mané, Liverpool – £108 million

3. Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City – £108 million

2. Mohamed Salah, Liverpool – £108 million

1. Raheem Sterling, Manchester City – £115.2 million

Any big surprises? Van Dijk not making the top ten is a little unusual, Kevin de Bruyne may feel a little unfortunate not to take the top spot too – though it’s quite easy to see why Raheem tops the list.
