13. Aston Villa – Emiliano Martinez (€35m)
With the departure of Jack Grealish to Manchester City, Martinez is now the most valuable Aston Villa player. He had a tremendous last season; both with Aston Villa and Argentina. He was instrumental in Argentina winning the Copa America 2021.
12. Leeds United – Kalvin Phillips (€40m)
Kalvin Phillips started out as a box-to-box midfielder but was converted into a defensive midfielder by Marcelo Bielsa before the start of the 2018–19 season. He’s very good when he has to cover the team when the full-backs go in the attack. And he is very good with his defending as well. He had an outstanding Euro with England, with critics drawing comparisons with Andrea Pirlo.
11. Crystal Palace – Wilfried Zaha (€45m)
The 28-years old Wilfried Zaha has been Crystal Palace talisman for quite some time now. He can play as a forward or as a winger, usually on the left where he can cut inside with his right foot.
Zaha has long been linked with an exit from Selhurst Park, with the Eagles turning down a £70m bid plus James McCarthy and Cenk Tosun from Everton in the summer of 2019. The 28-year-old’s contract at Palace does not expire until the summer of 2023, but each passing transfer window brings renewed speculation over the forward’s future.
10. Wolves – Ruben Neves (€45m)
Initially helping Wolves win promotion from the Championship, Neves, now 24, has developed into one of the Premier League’s top central midfielders. His playing attributes also granted him comparisons to Portuguese international teammate Moutinho for his fine first touch, similar desire to press his opponents, and excellent distribution.
9. Everton – Richarlison (€55m)
On his day, the Brazilian is an effervescent character, someone who can change the game in an instant with a piece of trickery. He joined the club from Watford in 2018. Richarlison scored 13 goals for the club last season. He is the most valuable Everton player on this list.
8. Leicester City – James Maddison (€60m)
Maddison has established himself as a key cog in the machine for the Foxes since joining the club from Norwich City in 2018. Last season alone, Maddison has chipped in with 21 goal contributions in all competitions, helping Leicester to finish in the top-five and win the FA Cup.
7. Arsenal – Bukayo Saka (€65m)
It’s very surprising to see Arsenal’s most valuable player is the youngster Bukayo Saka. The 19-year-old is the most exciting young talent Arsenal have currently, and he is easily one of the most exciting talents in the world. Saka started his career with Arsenal’s Hale End academy at the age of 7. Once he turned 17 years old, Saka was given a professional contract by Arsenal.
