Joshua Kimmich, Bayern, 2021/22

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.

Joshua Kimmich is currently valued at €71.6 million, which is testament to his performances for Bayern over the last few years.

At 27 years old, Kimmich is undisputedly one of the best midfielders in the world currently. However, he's not just a midfielder, as he can also be found filling in at right-back, or at wing-back with the German national team.

He has won seven Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich as well as three DFB-Pokal trophies and one Champions League.

Kai Havertz is the second highest valued German player at €71.4m. In the summer of 2020 Chelsea went on a spending splurge across Europe and bought Havertz from Leverkusen for a fee of around €84 million. He is recognised as one of the best young players in the world and his current value certainly has the potential to rise further.

We return to Bayern Munich for the third-highest valued German.

Leroy Sane can be found here, as even though he didn't enjoy a great debut season at Bayern, his immense potential means his current value of €70.7m could certainly rise again as he has started to show his huge qualities again this year.

Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Florian Wirtz is valued at €59.9m in fourth place. 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. He was excellent in the 2021/22 season.

Sane's Bayern team-mate Leon Goretzka is fifth after emerging as a powerhouse midfielder for club and country in recent times. He is valued at €55m.

Timo Werner may not have had the dream debut season 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 sixth-highest valued German at €51.3m after working his way back into the Chelsea starting XI.

Jamal Musiala is yet another Bayern player inside the top 10 and the wonderkid, who left Chelsea as a youngster, is valued at €49.4m.

Completing the top 10 are Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry and Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Antonio Rudiger misses out due to the fact his contract situation at Chelsea.
