The CIES Football Observatory research team has developed a powerful approach to estimate on a scientific basis the transfer value of professional football players. Issue number 192 of the Weekly Post presents the list of the 110 big-5 league footballers with an estimated value of more than €40 million.

Estimated transfer values, millions €uros

No surprise that our very own motormouth is up at #13 (€104.4M);

Eric Dier at #21 (€85.0M);

John Stones surprisingly at #37 (€71.2M – didn't he flop already at Man City?)

Shkodran Mustafi at #69 (€54.1M);

But no place, it seems, for our Diamond, Ross Barkley? No even worth (€40.0M)? I suppose the estimates of around £30M (~€33.9M) are therefore accurate – although didn't we want £50M for him?

This compilation might also help those amongst us who like to post seemingly endless lists of players' names that Everton should be bringing in as we head into another summer of endless fun and intrigue in the transfer market.
