Despite a tough season that has been largely dominated by injuries, Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar remains the most value Brazilian player in the game today.

After coming through at Santos and earning a remarkable transfer to Barcelona, Neymar quickly established himself as one of the best players in the world.

A record-breaking move to PSG then beckoned and while the Brazil international has yet to win the Champions League with his French club, Neymar is still considered one of the best attacking talents on the planet. As such, he has a FootballTransfers value of €90.1 million.

Second on our top 10 list is none other than Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, who comes in with a value of €87.3m.

Although the striker has had to play second fiddle to Sergio Aguero for some time and is often overlooked by Pep Guardiola, Jesus still has time on his side and at 24 years of age he’s already proved that he can score goals on a regular basis for one of the strongest teams in European football.

Next on the list in fourth place is the somewhat underappreciated defensive midfielder Casemiro, who remains one of Real Madrid's most vital players. At the prime age of 29 years of age, Casemiro is currently valued at €83.3m.

For fifth place on our list we go to La Liga and Real Madrid, with Vinicius Junior valued at €80.6m.

Next on our list are two outstanding goalkeepers and arguably the two most impressive shot-stoppers in the game today.
