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.
Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Idowu made his debut and scored in Nigeria’s 4-2 win over Argentina in 2017. The 27-year-old currently plays for Lokomotiv Moscow, and he is valued at €1.50m.
He joined the side in 2018 from another Russian team, Amkar on a free transfer. He has made 13 appearances for Loko this season.
Like Shehu, Idowu is also versatile with the ability to play both as a right-back and left-back.
