Top 10 most valuable goalkeepers in the world revealed featuring Alisson, Aaron Ramsdale and Andre Onana

Top 10 most valuable goalkeepers in the world revealed featuring Alisson, Aaron Ramsdale and Andre Onana

It's an interesting list.

Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale has been named the most valuable goalkeeper in the world.

The CIES Football Observatory, a research group that focuses on statistical analysis in football, have valued the Arsenal shot-stopper at €79million (£67.5million).

Ramsdale caused a stir back in 2021 when he signed for the Gunners for around £30million, despite having suffered back-to-back relegations with Sheffield United and Bournemouth.

Eyebrows were initially raised over the signing, but the goalkeeper went on to establish himself as Arsenal’s first-choice and one of the Premier League’s most respected goalkeepers.

The 25-year-old’s performances were rewarded back in May when he was offered a lucrative four-year deal. Upon signing the deal, Ramsdale said: "It's crazy to think it's coming up to two years since we did this. I know that you guys weren't totally overexcited about the signing of myself and I totally get it.

"I didn't have any right to come here and expect you to rate me from the get-go. This is a huge club with some great keepers along the way. But, fair play, once I got into the team, I got my chance, I feel like you understood me a lot more. I feel your love and I feel like you feel mine as well.”

Second, on the list behind Ramsdale is Paris Saint-Germain’s Gianluigi Donnarumma, who is valued at €75million (£64million), while Liverpool star Alisson Becker completes the top three, with his value an estimated €67million (£57million).

Porto’s Diogo Costa, who is one of several keepers to have been linked to Manchester United this summer, is the world’s fourth most valuable player in his position at €65million (£55.5million).

Meanwhile, Manchester City’s treble-winner Ederson sits in fifth with a value of €57million (£48.7million).

Real Madrid shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois is the sixth most expensive goalkeeper on the list with a value of €52million (£44.4million), while Borussia Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel is seventh, rated at €48million (£41million).

Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is valued at €40m (£34m) while Inter’s Andre Onana, who is also the subject of interest from United, ​​is rated at €37m (£31.6m).

Alex Meret, who helped Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years last season, rounds out the top ten with a value of €36million (£30.7million).
