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.
Valued at €45.00m, Ndidi is currently Nigeria’s most valuable player, and there’s no one better to hold that achievement than the Leicester City man.
The former Genk man embodies everything a professional player should be. Recently, he was hailed as Super Eagles most devoted player by NFF President, Amaju Pinnick.
Also, Ndidi is currently studying Business and Management De Montfort University (DMU) despite his busy schedule.
On the pitch, Ndidi is the fulcrum of a Leicester side that is well on course to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Not only is he the most valuable Nigerian player at the moment, but he is also one of the most Valuable defensive midfielders in the world right now.
Should he maintain this form, it’s only a matter of time before one of Europe’s topsides come for his services.
