Stars from Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all feature among the top 10 Premier League stars who have lost the most market value in 2023.
A player can tank in market value for a number of reasons. Whether it’s down to a loss of form, injuries or getting older, footballers will regularly fluctuate in their market value.
Using figures from Transfermarkt, we have found the 10 Premier League stars who have lost the most market value throughout 2023.
=7. Casemiro (-17.39million)
After a promising start to life in the Premier League, Casemiro has endured a pretty miserable 2023-24 campaign. The 31-year-old looked sluggish at the start of the season and he’s been out of action since October with injury.
Considering his drastic dip in form during the tail end of the year, it’s probably no surprise that his market value has dropped by £17.39 million since the start of the year.
=7. Heung-min Son (-£17.39million)
The South Korean forward has looked reborn under Ange Postecoglou and his goals have helped soften the blow of losing Harry Kane. Son has played through the middle in the absence of Kane and has 11 league goals to his name this season.
However, despite his prolific form, he has still dwindled in value since the start of the year. The 31-year-old is currently valued at £43.48million which is a £17.39million decrease from his value at the start of the year.

=7. Reece James (-17.39million)
Injuries really have taken their toll on James this year. The dynamic Chelsea full-back has only managed 391 minutes of Premier League football this season as he’s regularly been on the treatment table.
When fully fit, James is widely considered as one of the best full-backs in Europe, although his injury record has seen his market value take quite a hit in 2023.
=7. Kevin De Bruyne (-£17.39million)
It seems like age catches up to all of us, even for a maverick like De Bruyne. The Belgian playmaker played a key role in City’s treble-winning campaign, but he has spent the tail end of 2023 on the treatment table.
Now 32, De Bryune has missed the majority of the 2023-24 season with a hamstring injury and his value has dipped by £17.39million as a consequence. Fingers crossed he comes back stronger than ever in 2024.
6. Raheem Sterling (-£21.74million)
While the 29-year-old perhaps isn’t quite at the peak of his powers, he has rediscovered some form under Mauricio Pochettino of late. Along with Cole Palmer and Conor Gallagher, Sterling has been one of Chelsea’s best players this season and he’s chipped in with eight goal contributions.
At the start of the year, Sterling was valued at £61.07million, but this figure has fallen by £21.74million since then. Regardless of his diminishing value, Sterling can still be a game-changer on his day.
=4. Marc Cucurella (-£26.09million)
The Spanish full-back seemingly had the world at his fingertips while at Brighton, but the move to Chelsea hasn’t quite gone to plan. Cucurella struggled to find much form in his debut season and has since seen his market value dramatically dip.
Pochettino seems to have got a bit more out of the left-back of late, but his value has still seen a £26.09million dip since the start of the year.
=4. Mason Mount (-£26.09million)
Mount moved to Old Trafford in the hopes of rediscovering his best form, but it’s not quite materialised like that so far. The 24-year-old has missed a large chunk of the season through injury and has seen his value dwindle as a result of this.
3. Wesley Fofana (-£28.7million)
The French defender has had a stinking time with injuries since his blockbuster move to Chelsea last year. Fofana still has his best years ahead of him, but his market value has taken quite a hit because of the injuries he has sustained.
The 23-year-old has had to have surgery because of an ACL injury and is set to be sidelined for the majority of the 2023-24 campaign. Fingers crossed he manages to come back stronger than ever.
2. Jadon Sancho (-£30.44million)
This one won’t come as much of a surprise. Sancho hadn’t exactly pulled up many trees at Old Trafford prior to his spat with Erik ten Hag and now he finds himself out of the picture entirely.
We’re still holding out hope that he manages to get his career back on track in the near future, but his value decrease sums up where he is right now.
Sancho is currently deemed to be worth £21.74million which is only a snip compared to what United paid for him back in 2021. Fingers crossed he gets himself a move in January.
1. Antony (-£34.7million)
United’s move for Antony raised plenty of eyebrows at the time and it’s probably fair to say the £80million winger hasn’t lived up to expectations at Old Trafford so far.
While United fans have been treated to some flashes of quality, Antony has struggled to produce the goods on a regular basis. Since the start of the calendar year, his value has fallen by £34.7million which is the most of any Premier League player.
