Hector Bellerin has been named as the right-back with the highest transfer value by the CIES Football Observatory.

Compiling a list of the top 100 players with the highest transfer value, they also broke that down by position and it is the Arsenal man who comes out on top with a value of €70.3m.

Neymar was named as the player with the highest transfer value at present – outdoing both Messi and Ronaldo.

Top five

  1. Neymar €246.8m
  2. Lionel Messi €170.5m
  3. Paul Pogba €155.3m
  4. Antoine Griezman €150.4m
  5. Luiz Suarez €145.2m

Surprisingly, Harry Kane is ranked 6th at €139.2m, above Cristiano Ronaldo in 7th at €126.5m. Deli Ali (9th) was named as the highest value attacking midfielder, Paul Pogba in the category of central midfielders.

Hector Bellerin was ranked 28th, but the highest valued right-back at €70.3m. Mustafi came in at #40 and €60.5m. The only other Arsenal player included in the top 50 apart from Alexis at #20 and €76.3m. Mesut Ozil is, inexplicably, 62nd (€47.6m), and Granit Xhaka 63rd (€46m).

The values use a number of metrics including age and current contract length. Kane’s deal with Spurs until 2022 is a large part of why he is so far up the table. Similar could be said for Alli as well.
