According to new research, Moise Kean, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Richarlison are three of the most valued players in world football, with a combined value of £150 million.

The CIES Football Observatory algorithm has calculated transfer values for the ‘big five’ European leagues – England, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany – with the Everton trio among the top 100.

After scoring 17 goals on loan at Paris Saint-Germain last season, Kean is estimated to be the 66th most expensive player in the world, valued at £55 million.

Kean joined Everton from Juventus for £27 million in 2019, suggesting Marcel Brands may make more than treble his investment if the striker leaves this summer.

Carlo Ancelotti had previously stated that the club would accept offers for Kean if he wanted to leave, but he himself left for Real Madrid last week.

Calvert-Lewin is the 82nd most expensive player on the list, valued at £50 million after scoring 21 goals in all competitions last season.

Following his £35 million move from Watford in the summer of 2018, CIES believes Richarlison is worth £45 million.

Everton’s Brazilian striker has 42 goals in 119 games and is thought to be the world’s 95th most valuable player.

Pedro Neto of Wolverhampton Wanderers is ranked 31st on the list, with a price tag of more over £70 million.

The appointment of his former manager Nuno Espirito Santo – who is currently the favourite for the vacant role at Goodison Park – as well as the influence of their mutual agent Jorge Mendes might potentially boost any transaction.

Neto is regarded as one of Europe’s most talented players of his position, and his arrival might put an end to the Blues’ hunt for a left-footed wideman who can also play on the right.

Romelu Lukaku, a former Everton striker, is worth £65 million after leading Inter Milan to the Serie A triumph with 30 goals in all competitions last season.
