Transfer values are a fairly subjective debate.
So luckily the boffins over at the CIES Observatory are at hand to number crunch for us.
They’ve provided their biannual update on the biggest players in world football – and the results are fascinating.
Perhaps unsurprisingly Mohamed Salah’s truly ridiculous debut season at Liverpool has seen his valuation rise more than any other player in Europe.
The Egyptian has seen his stock nearly double from €88.1m to €162.8m after just the 33 goals so far this campaign.
But he’s far from the only Premier League star shining.
He’s closely followed by Man City duo Ederson and Leroy Sane, whose values have risen €74.4m, and €63m respectively.
Ederson, in fact, is now rated at an incredible €98.7m from €24.3m just six months ago, which is seismic for a goalkeeper.
Kylian Mbappe (€54.7m), Gabriel Jesus (€53.1m), Joe Gomez, (€48.3m), Paulinho (€42.4m), Davinson Sanchez (€42.2m), Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (€40.7m) and Florian Thauvin (€38.4m) make up the rest of the top 10 highest movers.
The likes of Harry Maguire, Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling and Trent Alexander-Arnold all feature in the top 20 too.
Could Ederson become the first ever £100m goalkeeper one day?
