Mason Mount has become the most valuable player at Chelsea and 10th in Europe’s top five leagues, according to research group CIES Football Observatory.

The Switzerland-based research group use various variables such as a player’s performances, age, international status, and contract length to estimate the transfer values.

Manchester City’s Phil Foden tops the list at €190.2million (£163.5m), followed by Manchester United duo Mason Greenwood (£152.8m) and Rashford (£136.6m).

Interestingly, Mount is the 10th most valuable player on the list at €123.6m (£106.2m).

That valuation is above several high-profile players such as Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho (11th at £103.7m) and PSG’s Kylian Mbappe (12th at £101.7m).

Although, it must be said that in Mbappe’s case, having just a year left in his PSG contract is likely the primary reason he is not in the top-10 in the first place.

Mount, on the other hand, is tied with Chelsea until 2024 and has become a key player for both the club and England.

This would also be a big achievement for the Chelsea youth setup that an academy graduate is one of the 10 most valuable players in Europe.

Mount, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner are the only three Chelsea players whose transfer value exceeds €100m (€85.9m) according to CIES.

Three Chelsea academy products feature in CIES’ top-100 list.

Most valuable Chelsea players according to CIES:

  1. Mason Mount (€123.6m — £106.3m)
  2. Kai Havertz (€116.5m — £100.2m)
  3. Timo Werner (€108.9m — £93.7m)
  4. Christian Pulisic (€84.3m — £72.5m )
  5. Reece James (€75.9m — £65.3m)
  6. Callum Hudson-Odoi (€64m — £55m)
