Upgrade or downgrade? Have your say on the new market values of Álvarez, Antony & Co.
The countdown is on. Come the 12th of December, Transfermarkt will carry out the latest market value update in the Premier League. Before that, this is your chance to get involved! Who needs to be upgraded and why? Which players are valued too high and who could be in for a downgrade?
Manchester City’s Julián Álvarez has become a stalwart of Pep Guardiola’s star-studded City team this season, playing primarily just off of Erling Haaland in a central role. He has scored seven goals in 17 games this term and registered five assists. After a solid debut season in the Premier League with the Sky Blues, and an outstanding World Cup where he scored five goals on Argentina’s road to glory, the 21 year old has already seen his market value rise from €28 million, when he joined Man City, to €80m in the last Premier League market value update in October. He could have his eyes on becoming the first South American in the English top-flight to hit a value of €100m.
Another player who could be looking at an upgrade is Chelsea’s Cole Palmer. He received his first England call up for the qualifiers this November, after a very bright start to the season with Chelsea. Palmer has been in great form for the Blues since moving from Manchester City. Just 12 games into the season, he has already played more Premier League minutes for Chelsea (595) than he did in the last three seasons for the Sky Blues (489). Nicolas Jackson is the only Chelsea player who has scored more Premier League goals than Palmer’s four this season. His current market value of just €32m looks sure to be increased this December.
At the other end of the scale, a player who could be looking at a downgrade in his market value is Manchester United winger Antony. This season the Brazilian has 0 goals and 0 assists in 12 games for the Red Devils. His market value has already fallen from a career high €75m when he joined Man United, and after his poor start to the season, his current market value of €50m could be in danger in December’s update.
Transfermarkt doesn’t use an algorithm, but instead relies on the wisdom of the community. Which is why your opinion counts. The only requirement before you can participate is to register as a Transfermarkt user. Then the market value analysis is open to you to discuss your assessments and arguments with other users. These discussions will eventually form the basis for our market values.
Ahead of the update on December 12th, the Transfermarkt market value analysis is already discussing whether the market values of these players - and all other Premier League professionals - need to be adjusted in the latest update. In addition to the Premier League, the market value update for the 24 clubs in the Championship will be on the 21st December.
