Top European clubs may be prepared to pay up to £120 million for Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe, despite the French club’s threats aimed at the youngster’s suitors, but according to a report by Soccerex, Dele Alli is the most valuable footballer born after January 1, 1996.
The Spurs star is valued at £73.6 million, using Prime Time Sport’s Football Value Index to determine his worth, while Mbappe is second on the list. The Monaco striker is valued at £55 million.
Mbappe’s France teammate and also coveted youngster Ousmane Dembele comes in third, the Dortmund winger reportedly worth £54.3 million.
Dele Alli’s stock continues to rise after another phenomenal season in which he hit 18 Premier League goals from midfield. Proof of this is his £44.8m increase with respect to last year’s report, which places him at the top of a list in which Leroy Sane (£45.5m), Marco Asensio (£38m) and Gabriel Jesus (£37.9m) also feature.
Marcus Rashford comes in seventh, valued at £38m, followed by Gianluigi Donnarumma (£36m), Timo Werner (£31.7m) and Kingsley Coman (£31.1m), who complete the top 10.
