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 Nigerian winger has been one of Nantes best players this season. Currently, on loan from Levante, Simon has scored nine goals in 26 appearances for the Canaries with the latest coming in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Dijon last weekend.
Nantes have the option of buying the Super Eagles star permanently for €5.00m, but reports suggest that could change in the summer.
According to reports, Newcastle, Lyon and Hertha Berlin are all interested in the Nigeria international, and he could go for €17.00m
