Research estimates the players with the highest transfer value from each Premier League side  

Researchers have determined which star from each 2022/23 Premier League club has the highest estimated transfer value on the market – with huge sums against players’ names.

The CIES Football Observatory has used a statistical model to gauge the transfer values of players from over 70 leagues across the globe. From here, they have given each club from these leagues their most valuable asset – including an estimated transfer fee.

In the case of the Premier League, just three big names possess a transfer value of over €100m. However, there are still some key players at various teams across the division who could command large fees.

Premier League transfer value: the top 5

Unsurprisingly, Man City goal machine Erling Haaland leads the Premier League in estimated transfer value. His €200m valuation puts him not only ahead of his teammates but also third in the whole world.

Behind the Norwegian, at just €150m, is Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka. Surprisingly, he is ahead of other emerging talents at the Gunners, including Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba.

A further 50 million euros behind Saka is compatriot Marcus Rashford. CIES value the England star at €100m – the last player ranked at nine digits.

A rather distant fourth is Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez. He joined the Reds in a club record deal last summer; now, his estimated value leads the team at €80m. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez completes the top five with an identical predicted value.

The rest of the top 10

Brighton, Spurs, West Ham, Newcastle, and Aston Villa have their most valuable player in the League’s top 10.

After reaching 30 goals in 2022/23, Harry Kane is sixth on €80m as well.

Declan Rice and Alexis Mac Allister make this list, both having €60m valuations. Interestingly, these midfielders may go for even more than the CIES model’s prediction as they are the subject of transfer speculation this summer.

Following closely behind, at €50m, is Newcastle’s Alexander Isak. He has enjoyed a solid first campaign in England – yet is still valued lower than the £60m fee that the Magpies paid in 2022.

Jacob Ramsey, Villa’s emerging academy product, rounds out the top 10 at €40m. This puts him level with more stars as we reach the bottom half of this table…

Places 11 – 20

Matching Ramsey on €40m is a midfielder from fellow midlands club, Wolves. Matheus Nunes – linked to Liverpool in the past – is reportedly worth a tidy sum.

Similarly, Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi is the Eagles’ player with the highest estimated value. This may be a shock to some, given their attacking talent. Nevertheless, Guehi is ahead of the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Eberechi Eze, and Michael Olise.

Youri Tielemans joins Nunes, Ramsey, and Guehi at €40m, becoming Leicester’s highest-value player. However, the Belgian could leave the Foxes for nothing due to his expiring contract.

A quartet of players then see their prices come in at the €30m mark. Firstly, Wilfried Gnonto from Leeds makes the list. Technically, Weston McKennie has a higher predicted value, but he is on loan at the club.

Joining Gnonto on €30m estimations are Bryan Mbuemo (Brentford), Brennan Johnson (Nottingham Forest), and Amadou Onana (Everton).

Seeing out the CIES Observatory Premier League clubs’ highest transfer value players are a trio from the south. Aleksandar Mitrovic – Fulham’s top scorer in 2022/23 – is apparently worth €20m. This is level with Carlos Alcaraz and Dango Ouattara, January signings for Southampton and Bournemouth respectively.
