Football industry experts Soccerex have named Liverpool’s wantaway attacker Raheem Sterling as the most valuable young player in Europe. The 20-year-old, linked with a move to Manchester City, tops the ‘Soccerex 20 Football Value Index’, which ranks players under 21 in Europe according to a whole list of factors including age, position, club, contract length, injuries and technical quality (all seems a bit made up to me).

Players are given a projected value, with chart-topper Sterling given a £34.5million figure, some way below the £50million Liverpool are asking for.

Nine Premier League players overall make the list with Man Utd’s Luke Shaw and new-boy Memphis Depay, Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma, Liverpool’s Emre Can and loanee Divock Origi, Everton’s John Stones and the Arsenal duo of Callum Chambers and Hector Bellerin joining Sterling in the countdown.

But where’s Harry Kane?!

Here’s the top 20. Make of it what you will…

    Boy someone is puffing up this mans ego deluxe. Ah well, Liverpool & Raheem will both be the beneficaries. More soccerex ratings I say!

    BTW – while hes employed by LFC, he does as his employer tells him. This is a great way for BR to make a statement to the team that hes in charge.

    I’m guessing they had a birthday cutoff of 1994. Kane was born 28 July 1993; he’ll be an old man of 22 in a couple of weeks.
