The current crop of Super Eagles stars is one of the best set of talents the country have had in recent years. It is also one of the youngest National team squad with an average age of 23.5 years.
Gernot Rohr’s men are also one of the most valuable squads in Africa with the Super Eagles having a market value €212.80m, just behind Senegal that sit in the first position.
With that said, Soccernet.ng takes a look at Nigeria’s top ten most valuable player. Note that, for the player to be considered, he must have played for the Super Eagles, and he should not be retired.
Also, these players are ranked based on figures acquired from Transfermarkt.
The first name on the list is former Kano Pillars star, Abdullahi Shehu. The 26-year-old currently plies his trade with Turkish Super Lig side, Bursaspor, and has a market value of €800k.
Shehu has made 21 appearances for the Green Crocodiles this campaign, scoring two goals. He joined Bursaspor from Anorthosis Famagusta for €300k but has seen his value double in two years.
Shehu made his debut in 2014 and has earned 27 caps since then. The Nigeria international is also known for his versatility having played as a right-back and central midfielder.
