Six England internationals are now worth more than €100 million including surprise name

Six England internationals are now worth more than €100 million including surprise name

He's enjoyed a rapid rise in recent years.

A recent study has identified six England players who are worth more than €100 million, but one of the names on the list might surprise you.

Since Jack Grealish became the first £100 million English player in 2021, it feels like the floodgates have opened in terms of transfer fees.

Declan Rice surpassed that figure when Arsenal signed him from West Ham for £105 million last summer, but it feels only a matter of time before that record is broken.

Now, according to the CIES Football Observatory, there are six English players with a transfer value of over €100 million (£86m).

The CIES Football Observatory has used a statistical model to predict the transfers fees clubs are likely to pay, based on fees paid in recent years for players with similar characteristics.

Jude Bellingham tops the list with a predicted value of €267.5 million (£230m). The 20-year-old midfielder joined Real Madrid last summer in a deal worth an initial £88.5 million, and has a contract valid until 2029.

Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka is the next Englishman on the list and fifth in the overall ranking with a value of €223 million (£192m), with Manchester City's Phil Foden close behind on €195.8 million (£168m).

Out-of-sorts Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford is surprisingly the fourth most valuable English player, coming in with a predicted fee of €136.2 million (£117m).

Fifth in the list is a real shock. Cole Palmer swapped City for Chelsea last summer in a £40 million move, but CIES have calculated that his value has already risen to €104.9 million (£90m).

Palmer has already cemented a regular starting role for Chelsea, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in 21 games for his new club. He made his senior England debut in November in a Euro 2024 qualifier against Malta.

The 21-year-old recently told Sky Sports that he did not want to leave City on a permanent basis last summer, but that the Premier League champions refused to send him out on loan.

Rounding out the English representatives in the 100 club is Declan Rice with a transfer value of €103.8 million (£89.3m), almost £16 million less than the figure Arsenal paid for him last summer.

With Euro 2024 just six months away, England boss Gareth Southgate could have the tournament's most valuable squad at his disposal.
