What a season it was for these 2 Englishmen. They hammered the opponents who came along the way and carried the team on their own. They have now formed the core of the team and what a find they are! They’re young, they’re extremely talented and it looks like they have their hearts set on making Tottenham great.
Harry Kane and Dele Alli have been named in the top-3 of the world’s most valuable players in a research conducted by CIES Football Observatory. Their research team has developed an algorithm based on the thorough analysis of almost 2000 transfers that have taken place. They presented the list of 110 footballers of the top-5 leagues, who have an estimated value of more than €40million. Barcelona’s Neymar tops the table ahead of Tottenham’s Dele Alli and Harry Kane.
Neymar has been valued at £186.3million (€210.7million), whereas Kane and Alli have been valued at £137million (€155.1million) and £135.7million (€153.6million) respectively. They are closely followed by the great Lionel Messi.
The youngest player in the rankings is the French prodigy Kylian Mbappé (£82.3million), while the oldest is the evergreen Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo (£99.1million).
Here’s the list of top-12 players from the list of 110 that was released by CIES Football Observatory.

Alli and Kane enjoyed a remarkable 2016/17 season with the midfielder notching up 18 goals and 9 assists in the Premier League, and the striker leading the Premier League scoring charts with 29 goals, contributing a further 7 assists as well.
The duo is just two of 9 Tottenham players named in the 110 man list. Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Heung-Min Son, Toby Alderweireld, Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen and Kyle Walker have all been mentioned on the list as well.
Manchester City and Chelsea both have 7 players each on the list, while rivals Arsenal have half of our number, with just 4 players.
Other notable Premier League inclusions are Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, who grabs the 7th place, Everton’s Romelu Lukaku at 13th, and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk at 85th, valued at £41.2million (€46.6million).
Do you think the list is a fair one considering the current market scenario?
