Analytics report calculates Reds starlet is nearly twice as valuable as Joao Felix

Posted by

Only two players in world football aged 21 or under are more valuable than Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to a new report from analytics company Football Benchmark (via the Liverpool ECHO).

Alexander-Arnold, valued at €81 million (£73 million), was behind only PSG forward Kylian Mbappe (€225 million), who has been linked with a move to the Reds over the last few weeks, and ex-Manchester City winger Jadon Sancho (€96 million), now at Jurgen Klopp’s former side Borussia Dortmund.

Joao Felix, meanwhile, who is believed to be on the verge of signing for Atletico Madrid for more than £120 million, was valued at just €45 million – almost half the value of the Reds’ right-back.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz (€71 million) placed fourth on the list, while Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt, another linked with the Reds this summer, came in fifth place, valued at €70 million.

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic, who the Reds made a bid of £11 million for in 2016, was valued at €55 million, a similar amount to what the Blues signed him for in January.

Everyone knows just how good Alexander-Arnold is, and reports like this only reaffirm that. It’s nice to see that his value is so high – although there’s no chance of the Reds cashing in any time soon!
