Mason Mount is Chelsea's most valuable player according to study

Mason Mount is the most valuable player at Chelsea according to CIES Football Observatory’s study.

The Swiss-based research group has just released a list of 100 most valuable players in five European top leagues.

The CIES Football Observatory’s algorithm factors in variables such as players’ ages, contract duration, career progression, performances, to determine these values.

They have also taken into account the global pandemic crisis which has changed football’s financial climate.

None of Chelsea players made it into the top 10 with Mount being the most valuable ranked at 19th in Europe’s top leagues (11th in the Premier League) with a valuation of £91.2million.

The 21-year-old has been instrumental under Frank Lampard this season, featuring in each of the 29 Premier League games Chelsea have played this season.

His valuation also puts him ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi (£89m) and Frenkie de Jong (£90.8m), and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk (£87.6m).

Surprisingly, despite struggling with form this season, Kepa Arrizabalaga who is listed as the second-most valuable at Chelsea has been valued at £68m, just slightly lower than his record-breaking transfer fee of £71.5m.

Christian Pulisic is third at £67.6m, then Jorginho at £58.6m, and Chelsea’s last player in Europe’s top 100 Tammy Abraham is at £54.8m.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe has topped the list with a staggering valuation of £230.5m, while Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling’s valuation of £173.1m is the highest among Premier League players.
