Arsenal have a great bunch of younger players in their first-team roster and their valuations have taken up big rise after recent displays.
Arsenal have endured a good start to the week as they claimed a 1-0 win over Manchester United at the Old Trafford. After two straight losses in the Premier League, the Gunners have moved into the top half of the standings after picking up three points in the north of England which is a steady but important step in their pursuit of a top four spot.
HITC now reports news that will only further brighten Mikel Arteta’s impression about his lot of younger players who have played a crucial role for the club. The CIES Football Observatory recently released its valuations for some of the world’s best younger players and the Gunners have seen stocks of four players rise incrementally high.
While some of the leading names include Ansu Fati and Erling Haaland, Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka himself is not further off the top-ranked players. The pacey winger’s versatility has come in very handy in the last one and the England international has not looked back since being promoted to the club’s first team and is now valued at a staggering 96 million euros.
Saka’s evaluation comes as a surprise because he is just 19 years old and has not gained as much prominence in the world as his competitors such as Fati and Haaland have. Not to mention, he also surpasses his compatriots in Callum Hudson-Odoi, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham in terms of the transfer worth, and also French sensation Eduardo Camavinga.
Among all, Saka’s numbers are the most astonishing. Nevertheless, kudos have also been given to Gabriel Martinelli, who is valued at 26 million euros. The striker has shown that he has what is takes to be a consistent goal-scorer for the Premier League giants in the longer run and with time and better displays, Martinelli’s valuation will only rise.
To close a list that comprises four members of the Arsenal squad, William Saliba and Emile Smith Rowe see their transfer values marked at 21 million euros and 5 million euros respectively. Given that the duo does not have much experience in the first-team, both values are relatively lesser and bound to increase with time if they live up to potential.
