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.
Osimhen and Chukwueze are the golden stars of Nigeria’s new generation.
Osimhen has taken the Ligue 1 by storm in his debut season, while Chukwueze broke into stardom following a series of brilliant performances with Villarreal last season.
Osimhen only joined Lille from Royal Charleroi for €13.00m last summer, but he is now valued almost three times of that amount. According to reports, the 21-year-old was a transfer target for Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs in the January transfer window.
The former Golden Eaglets star will definitely command massive money should Lille decide to bow to pressure this summer.
His compatriot, Chukwueze is also another player attracting interest from Chelsea, although he recently signed a new deal at the Estadio de la Cerámica with a release clause of €100.00m.
One thing is sure, both Chukwueze and Osimhen will go for big money should their clubs decide to cash in on them.
