Bought for just £5m from MK Dons in January 2015, and following a debut campaign that saw him become a mainstay in the England team too, the Tottenham playmaker’s stellar rise followed that up with 18 goals in 37 Premier League appearances from midfield last season, where he won the PFA Young Player of the Year award for a second successive time as well.
He is followed by French Wonder kid Mbappe, the reason why his price soars above Mbappe’s is due to the number of minutes he played for Tottenham last season. Alli clocked an impressive 3,044 minutes, more than double that of the Frenchman’s 1,499.
Dele Alli is one of two Englishmen in this list, with Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford the other.
The 19-year-old sits seventh, valued at £36.2m., climbing from £20m last season where he was seventh.
Above Rashford in fourth, fifth and sixth are Manchester City’s Leroy Sane (£45.5m), Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio (£38m) and Sane’s City team-mate Gabriel Jesus (£37.9m).
AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma (£36m), Leipzig’s Timo Werner (£31.7m) and Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman (£31.1m) complete the top 10.
The values of the top 20 players were calculated on their age, position, current club, contract length, market value perception and international caps. Minutes played, goals, injuries and technical quality from a variety of sources were also taken into account.
