It comes as no shock Felix tops the list after breaking out in 2019.

Two Liverpool men also feature in the top three in the form of Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Alexander-Arnold has become one of the world's best full-backs and helped his side to Champions League glory.

He also broke the Premier League record for most assists from full-back in a single season, notching 12 in the 2018/2019 season.

Mane, meanwhile, spearheaded Liverpool's attack as well as guiding Senegal to the Africa Cup of Nations final in the summer.

The 27-yer-old was also named African Player of the Year earlier this week and delivered a humble speech when accepting the award.

English wingers Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho also enjoyed outstanding 2019's, with Sterling winning a domestic treble with Manchester City.

Teenage winger Sancho also continued his rise by playing a key part in Borussia Dortmund's title charge and they pushed eventual champions Bayern Munich close.

If he was to leave Signal Iduna Park in the summer, it's likely his potential suitors would have to smash the transfer record for his services.

Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez and Real Madrid's Federico Valverde have also enjoyed breakout years respectively.

Who do you think rose in value most throughout 2019?
