The 10 United States footballers with the highest price tag
Christian Pulisic is the highest-valued United States footballer.
The flying winger was one of the world’s highest-rated teenagers just a few years ago when he broke through at Borussia Dortmund.
Chelsea won the race to sign ‘Captain America’ in the summer of 2019 for an estimated €64 million. Now 23 years of age, Pulisic hasn’t quite set the Premier League on fire, with our valuation slightly decreased at €50.7m.
But what other American players feature in the top 10?

In second place is Sergino Dest. The right-back became one of the plethora of young talents to be produced by the Ajax academy, joining Barcelona at the beginning of last season. He is valued at €49.3m.
Dortmund clearly have a knack for unearthing young American talents, as the second third-valued player on our list is Black and Yellow sensation Giovanni Reyna.
Recently given the No.7 shirt at the club after Jadon Sancho left for Manchester United, the 19-year-old is already an established player in Germany and is valued at €47m on our list.
Tyler Adams is the fourth-highest valued United States player, with the RB Leipzig midfielder valued at €34.5m. Despite naturally playing in the middle of the pitch, Adams has often shown his versatility by playing in forward positions and occupying different roles in midfield.
