The transfer value of Super Eagles stars Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho has dropped, according to a new survey.
Iwobi’s transfer value has reduced from €36.2 million to €31.5 million, while Iheanacho’s value has reduced to €19.4m after spending less minutes on the pitch following his transfer to Leicester City.
But Leicester City ace Wilfred Ndidi, who also hopes to be at next year’s World Cup in Russia, was picked as the most valuable U21 player in Africa.
According to the report published on Monday, December 4, Leicester City’s Young Player of the Year Ndidi is the 11th most valuable U21 footballer in the world, with his transfer value increasing from 48.7 million euros to 64.8 million euros, a 33 percent increase.
PSG striker Kylian Mbappe (€182.8 million) is currently the most expensive U21 player in world football, followed by Tottenham’s Dele Alli (€180.2 million) and Manchester City’s Leroy Sane (€124.5 million).
Seven of the 11 players with the highest transfer values for U21 players represent English Premier League clubs, including Ndidi.
The survey was conducted by the CIES Football Observatory.
