#4 Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – €144.9 million

Nobody, including Liverpool themselves, would’ve anticipated Salah to make such an impact, given his poor spell in the Premier League previously with Chelsea. He’s broken records after records and also collected numerous individual honours.

Last season, he also guided the Reds back to Champions League glory, even scoring one in the finals. In the 144 appearances so far, he’s struck a staggering 91 times, and might as well surpass triple digits before the end of the current campaign, whilst also adding a Premier League medal to his growing trophy cabinet.

#3 Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – €152.3 million

Rashford’s valuation may seem a tad too much compared to some of the seasoned stars on this list, but that’s because of his age. He’s still only 22 and even though the United striker has a long way to go in his career, has already achieved so much in so little time.

He’s the indispensable choice upfront, whilst also taking his tally to new heights each year. With 19 goals in all competitions so far, the current season is already his best yet as Rashford continues to grow in influence with the national side too.

#2 Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – €171.1 million

It may seem cliche by now, but Alexander-Arnold has really revolutionized the role of full-backs. There’s hardly anything lacking from his game. He is precociously talented, and yet, his qualities on the pitch thoroughly belie his age.

Recently, he also became the first in the league’s history to make 10+ assists in consecutive seasons, and will soon add a Premier League medal to his Champions League title, even before his 22nd birthday! At this rate, the Liverpool astro is headed for much bigger things in future.

#1 Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – €194.7 million

Sterling has grown by leaps and bounds since switching Liverpool for the Skyblues in 2015. He’s unlocked an extra level or two in his game under Guardiola’s tutelage, and also played a central role in all of City’s recent success.

At 25, the winger has already clocked 250 appearances in the league, and will soon enter triple digits in terms of goals scored for the club. Even though his returns on the international front aren’t as glittering, Sterling remains crucial for England too.
