Premier League

Most Valuable English Players 2021

Harry Kane

Kane is the most valuable English player in the world right now. According to transfer market, his valuation has stayed at €120 million.

However, the England captain has endured a difficult start to the new season. Barring a hat-trick in the UEFA Champions League that came against a lowly Mura in the Europa Conference League, Kane has been rather lackluster this term.

He is yet to score or provide an assist after six Premier League appearances, which is very unlike him. Spurs have been struggling as a unit and they will need their main man to kick into gear and hit his stride if they are to turn their season around.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish's stock has been on the rise for quite a while now. The 26-year-old's valuation has taken a €35 million bump and risen from €65 million to a whopping €100 million.

Manchester City signed the extremely creative midfielder from Aston Villa this past summer for a sum of €117.5 million.

He has got off to a decent start to life at his new club and has scored two goals and provided two assists in 10 appearances across all competitions so far.

He will need some time to settle down in Manchester City's setup as their style of play is quite a departure from what Grealish was used to at Aston Villa.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United paid €85 million to Borussia Dortmund to secure the services of Jadon Sancho.

The Englishman is yet to settle down and get used to the rigours of the Premier League. But it is excusable as he is still just 21-years-old and he is quite clearly a long-term investment as far as the Red Devils are concerned.

Sancho has offered a few flashes of his incredible talent but is yet to profoundly affect a game in his Manchester United stint spanning nine appearances so far.

He hasn't scored a goal or provided an assist at his new club and the pressure is on him to start delivering.

Marcus Rashford

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has missed the start of the new Premier League season. He recently underwent surgery on his shoulder to address a long-standing issue.

Rashford is now set to return in the second half of October following the international break.

He was one of Manchester United's standout performers in the 2020-21 season.

Rashford scored 21 goals and provided 15 assists in 57 appearances across all competitions. The 23-year-old packs blistering pace and is a tricky winger with an eye for goal.

He has topped the chart for nutmegs in all of Europe's top 5 leagues in both the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. Rashford is also an excellent shooter and can play in various roles across the frontline. He is currently valued at a whopping €85 million.

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling has been one of Manchester City's most influential players in the Pep Guardiola era.

He wasn't at his staggering best in the 2020-21 season, scoring 14 goals and providing 12 assists in 49 appearances across all competitions for City.

The 26-year-old had a good outing with England at Euro 2020 and was one of the best players for Gareth Southgate's side at the competition.

He scored three goals and provided an assist in seven appearances at the European championship.

However, Sterling seems to have fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City following the arrival of Jack Grealish. He has started just two of the seven Premier League games so far and has scored just a single goal and registered a single assist in 10 appearances so far.
