Tottenham’s Dele Alli has been named as the world’s most valuable player aged under 21.
Alli has been crowned ahead of Monaco star Kylian Mbappe by the Soccerex 20 U21 report, which uses Prime Time Sport’s Football Value Index on players born on or after January 1, 1996 and the Spurs star is valued at a whopping £73.6million.
The England international, who has already won the PFA Young Player of the Year twice, dwarfs Mbappe’s valuation with the French teenager only valued at £55m.
Mbappe has been linked with clubs across Europe such as Real Madrid, PSG, Manchester City and Arsenal after a stunning season at Monaco.
He contributed 15 goals in the French side’s Ligue 1 title triumph, and added a further six in the club’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.
However, those accomplishments were not enough to rank him above the Spurs midfielder, who scored 18 goals as Mauricio Pochettino’s team finished second in the Premier League.
Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele completes the top three, just missing out on second spot with a valuation of £54.3m.
Alli’s valuation as risen from £28.8m in the 12 months since Soccerex’s last report. Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford in seventh place is the only other Englishman in the top 10.
