The 10 Premier League stars who have gained the most value in 2023: Hojlund, Szoboszlai…
The Premier League is home to some of the biggest stars in football and players from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have seen exponential growth in their market values during 2023.
As the money involved in football continues to skyrocket, it is now commonplace for Premier League players to be worth vast sums of money and move for jaw-dropping transfer fees.
Using Transfermarkt market values, we have found the 10 Premier League stars who have gained the most market value throughout the calendar year of 2023.
10. Julian Alvarez (+£26.16million)
The Argentine forward often played second-fiddle to Erling Haaland last season, but Pep Guardiola has recently found a spot for Alvarez in the starting XI.
Having started in all 12 Premier League matches this season, the 23-year-old has been one of the first names on the teamsheet of late.
He’s chipped in with eight goal contributions this season and has seen his market value increase by £26.16million throughout the year.
9. Martin Odegaard (+£26.16million)
The Arsenal captain has been one of the best creative outlets in the Premier League for some time now. It’s crazy to think that Odegaard is still only 24 years old, considering he has been playing professional football since 2014.
He currently holds down a market value of £78.47million, making him one of the most valuable players in the league. In 2023 alone he’s managed to gain around 33.3% of that value too, adding a healthy £26.16million to his overall value.

8. Micky van de Ven (+£27.90million)
Tottenham had a successful summer transfer window and Van de Ven has certainly been one of the signings of the season so far. The 22-year-old looks like a natural in the Premier League and his market value will no doubt continue to rise.
Spurs will have to cope without the Dutch defender for the foreseeable future though as he has been sidelined until next year with a hamstring injury. Fingers crossed he comes back stronger than ever.
7. Levi Colwill (+£27.90million)
Following a successful loan spell with Brighton, Colwill has been progressing nicely at Stamford Bridge of late. Mauricio Pochettino has an excellent track record with developing youngsters and he seems to have taken a shine to Colwill.
Now a fully-fledged England international, Colwill’s development has been fascinating to track of late. He’s gained £27.90million in market value during 2023 alone and he is now deemed to be worth £36.62million.
6. Dominik Szoboszlai (+£30.52million)
It’s hard not to get excited about Szoboszlai. The dynamic attacking midfielder has already made a significant impact on Jurgen Klopp’s squad and he also has the eye for the spectacular.
Liverpool splashed a reported fee of £60million on the Hungary international and it seems as if they got themselves a decent deal. He’s gained £30.52million in value this year and that figure will only grow from here.
“Dom [Szoboszlai] was a surprise with how fast he has fit in, it was pretty much from the first minute,” Klopp told reporters. “Top-class player with a lot of quality. He never stops. He learns a lot from the game.”

5. Kaoru Mitoma (+£36.18million)
Brighton have a knack for finding hidden gems from around the globe and Mitoma is one of their leading stars right now. The Japan international has chipped in with six goal contributions this season and is one of the best left-wingers in the league.
Mitoma has managed to gain £36.18million in value throughout the calendar year of 2023 and he currently ranks as Brighton’s second most valuable asset.
4. Jeremy Doku (+£36.62million)
Currently averaging 3.4 successful dribbles per game in the Premier League, there aren’t many wingers doing it better than Doku right now. The 21-year-old has been a superb addition at the Etihad and we can’t wait to see more.
He’s produced five assists so far and is one of the most entertaining players to watch in the league. We’re hardly surprised that his value has been bumped up by £36.62million this year.
Absolutely clinical on the counter ❄️

3. Rasmus Hojlund (+£43.59million)
While he is still waiting on his first Premier League goal, United fans have seen some promising signs from Hojlund so far. He currently leads the way with the most goals scored in the Champions League along with Alvaro Morata and has looked like a handful for defenders.
It will surely only be a matter of time before he opens his goalscoring account in the Premier League at Old Trafford. Watch this space.
2. Moises Caicedo (+£45.34million)
The 22-year-old became the most expensive signing in Premier League history in the summer when Chelsea decided to splash £115million on the Ecuador international.
Living up to that sort of price tag was always going to be difficult, but Caicedo has been gradually improving as the season has gone on. He’s also managed to add £45.34million to his market value throughout the year.
1. Evan Ferguson (+£55.80million)
Brighton fans will have been delighted when Ferguson recently penned a new deal until the summer of 2029. The 19-year-old forward is one of the brightest prospects in the Premier League right now and plenty of top sides are interested.
He’s currently averaging a goal every 116 minutes in the league, which is a staggering return for someone of his age. Ferguson has gained the vast majority of his market value in 2023 and is now deemed to be worth £56.62million.
“Evan is a brilliant young talent and we are delighted for him,” Brighton technical director David Weir told the club website.
“He’s shown his ability at club and international level, after breaking into the team at the start of the year, and we are looking forward to working with him and watching his continued progress.”
