The 10 Germany footballers with the highest price tag
Joshua Kimmich is the most highly-valued German player in world football, but what other German players feature in the top 10?
FootballTransfers' transfer valuations are calculated in collaboration with SciSports, a world-leading football analytics agency that assesses the relative transfer valuations of over 60,000 professional footballers worldwide. SciSports use multiple data points including current and potential ability, contract length, form, age, and other crucial factors.
At aged 26, Kimmich is undisputedly one of the best midfielders in the world currently. Not just a midfielder, two, but he can also be found filling in at right-back, or at wing-back with the German national team.
He has won six Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich as well as three DFB-Pokal trophies and one Champions League.
Kimmich is valued by FootballTransfers at €81.9m.
Timo Werner may not have had the dream debut he was hoping for with Chelsea, scoring just six times in the Premier League, but his pedigree as one of the elite forwards in Europe remains.
He is the second-highest valued German at €73.8m.
Werner's Chelsea team-mate Kai Havertz may have arrived for a bigger fee last summer, but at this moment he is valued slightly less in third at €71m.
We return to Bayern Munich for the fourth, fifth, and sixth-highest valued Germans.
Leroy Sane is in fourth, as even though he didn't enjoy a great debut season at Bayern, his immense potential means his current value of €67.3m could certainly rise again.
|2. Timo Werner||Chelsea||€73.8m|
|3. Kai Havertz||Chelsea||€71m|
|4. Leroy Sane||Bayern||€67.3m|
|5. Serge Gnabry||Bayern||€61.2m|
|6. Leon Goretzka||Bayern||€55.5m|
|7. Marc-Andre ter Stegen||Barcelona||€54.8m|
|8. Florian Wirtz||Leverkusen||€54.1m|
|9. Toni Kroos||Real Madrid||€45.4m|
|10. Ilkay Gundogan||Man City||€39.9m|
Fellow Bayern winger Serge Gnabry has emerged as a wonderful forward since his move to Bavaria, making former club Arsenal in particular look red-faced at letting him go in the process.
He is valued at €61.2m.
Leon Goretzka completes the Bayern contingent, valued at €55.5m. His short contract length will contribute to that perhaps not being as high as it would have been.
In seventh is Barcelona star Marc-Andre ter Stegen, valued at €54.8m. While Barca have struggled in recent years, the German has been one of their most consistent performers and remains one of the best goalkeepers in Europe.
Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Florian Wirtz is valued at €54.1m in eighth. Rest assured, that value will probably increase over the next couple of years if he continues to impress as much as he has done in his short career already.
In at nine is the oldest player in the top 10, Toni Kroos. The Real Madrid superstar is currently valued at €45.4m.
Rounding out the top 10 is Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, valued at €39.9m
